What I ate in Manila

Though I couldn't take all the pictures of food I ate during the stay in Manila, I would like to introduce some...

1. At an inside restaurant of "Oceanrium", an aquarium located in the bay side. St. Miguel, local beer of the Philippines was light and good!

Laksa, Malaysian noodle
2. Local fried chicken chain "Max's." Max's is the first local restaurant which serves fried chicken other than KFC. I saw Max's branches all over Manila. As the price seems reasonable and the taste is nice, I understood the popularity.

3. Another fried chicken chain. I found people in the Philippines really love fried chicken...or fried something...:) The taste was good but a bit salty and strong...

4. A Japanese restaurant named "Akitaya" near "Little Tokyo" area in Manila. Akitaya offers specialties of northern part of Japan such as kiritanpo hot pot that we don't eat so often even in Tokyo. The taste was quite close to the authentic ones.

5. A Thai dishes restaurant in a shopping mall. Fresh fruits juice was really nice! Restaurants in malls are clean and stylish that we can be relaxed.

6. A posh Japanese-Korean buffet restaurant in a shopping mall near EDSA Shangri-la. Japanese cuisine seemed very popular in the Philippines. I saw sushi everywhere. Sometimes mango is an ingredient of sushi. This kind of customization is a proof of real popularity:)

7.  A local seafood restaurant. All dishes are served on banana leaves and we can eat by hand:) I really enjoyed both their presentation and taste! Very recommendable!
