I know I’ve been blogging about all things JAPANESE for these past few weeks, so please bear with me today as I another JAPANESE themed entry. Sorrrrrryyyyy! I can’t help myself.. I’m obsessed with JAPAN, their food, culture, style, everything!
Today, I’d like to talk about my new fave Teppanyaki joint, AKIRA. My folks and I tried out their Shangrila Mall branch a few weekends ago and we absolutely loved it! We’ve been telling all our friends to try it–“Gusto niyo ng Japanese? Go to AKIRA!!” has been our mandatory line for a good 2 weeks now. Hahaha! We all love traditional Teppanyaki and the theatrics that come along with this style of cooking. It makes the dining experience even more enjoyable. Our assigned cook, Lucky, did such a wonderful job with his knife tricks and other antics—para kaming mga bata, aliw na aliw talaga! Especially my dad who kept saying “Wow, this guy is so talented!!!” Hahaha.
We availed of the GROUP SPECIAL with Japanese Wagyu (a must!!!!) which is good for 5 persons. Since we were only 4, we just took home the extra food and my folks had Akira left overs for dinner. The whole AKIRA experience was very entertaining and the food was equally stellar! Masarap talaga!! Hayyyy, I want to eat in AKIRA again!! Thank you again to the AKIRA Shangri-la Branch team 🙂
