There is something about a Japanese restaurant that makes it an attractive hang-out to dine alone. At that time, the nearest one, that was also quiet, was Teriyaki Boy (Paseo de Roxas corner Legaspi St., beside Starbucks, Makati City).
My typical dining for one food choices would include any of the following:
- Mixed sashimi (if none available, tuna or salmon will do)
- Japanese fried rice
- House tea
- Plum wine (only get to try this abroad. Rarely available in local ones.)
- Fruit shakes
I must admit though that the sashimis served in local Japanese restaurants no longer excite me, even at the more expensive spots. Whenever in Australia, I get my Japanese food fix at Cherry Blossom. This is a small eatery oftentimes found outside a supermarket and really enjoy their servings.
