Sundry Nights at Little Tokyo -- a taste of Japan in Makati

Long before the current ramen and tonkatsu craze, there was Little Tokyo, Makati's very own Japantown, right along Pasong Tamo avenue.

The familiar sight of a red torii marks the narrow alley that leads into Little Tokyo.  There's always a gaggle of giggly girls at the entrance waiting for their Japanese dates.

There are about 6 or 7 small izakayas inside -- clustered around a mini garden.  My  favourites are Nodasho (shown above) which has quite an extensive menu and  Hana with their specialties of yakisoba and takoyaki.

I enjoy coming to Little Tokyo on my own and having an ice cold beer ... usually two.  Paired with some edamame or shimesaba sashimi, it's a relaxing way to end a long day.
