We and our friends came from a birthday party. It was a long trip so we decided to eat late dinner at Shonantei along Mindanao Ave.
I heard/read about it when my bestfriend, Kriska was craving for Japanese food and asked via Facebook where she can get Japanese food at around 12MN. A friend of her suggested Shonantei. Yes, they are still open at that time of night.
Plus, our good friend, Budji, already ate there with his family and told us the food is really good.
They open at 5pm and call for last orders at around 12 midnight. It’s a small place along Mindanao Ave. Be careful when driving, it’s easy to miss.
We arrived at around 11PM and as soon as we entered, I felt like we were in Japan. There were Japanese themed posters, curtains, designs. You may choose to sit on regular tables or the area where you may sit on the floor. We chose to sit on the floor to have a complete Japanese experience. Also because all the tables were full. hehe.
It was late so most of our orders were not available anymore. But since we love Japanese food, we really can eat any that was available.
Everything is sooo delicious. I never thought Japanese food could taste this good.
After eating, the chef walked by our table and I told him how yummy the food was. Then he started talking to me in Tagalog. hehehe… We talked a bit about when and how he started. And of course we asked for a picture with him.
Thank you Chef Takeshi-san!
We’ll definitely go back to try out other best sellers.
Tip: Be there early. You may also call them for advanced orders so they know what to get from their supplier and prepare it by the time you get there.
