Much as I want to control my appetite, I let go of all the restraints whenever I go to a Japanese restaurant. I couldn't help gobbling up sushi, rolls, sashimi, and other Japanese specialties. That's why during the day I was going to visit Genji M, I knew that I'll be throwing dieting off the window. I just adore Japanese food!
Genji M is a Japanese-Korean restaurant located in Kalayaan Avenue, Makati City.
The place may look small as you enter the premises, but it was only half of the whole space as they have a lot of private rooms for groups.
I was in awe watching the chefs prepare our dinner. Genji M's manager, Ms. JM, says that the seafood is selected carefully and bought the same day that it will be served to maintain its freshness.
We started with the miso soup and banchan, or Korean appetizers, which is included in the buffet.
Then there comes our sushi and rolls platter!
The rolls include California, Soft Salmon, Salmon, Tuna, French Fried (I loved this!), Cheese, and Spicy Roll.
For sushi, we had the Shrimp, Crab Stick, Fatty Salmon, Salmon, and Tuna. What's not to love?
We were also served this lovely sashimi boat that includes salmon, tuna, tuna belly, tuna tataki, squid, and octopus.
One of the newest addition to the menu is Crazy California, a crunchy version of the traditional Cali Maki.
Though our tummies are filled to its limits, we still didn't stop there as we were served some of the ala carte dishes.
We had Tempura or Fried Prawn (Php 350), and Yakiniku.

Can you say no to delicious food? I don't think so. :P
We also had Tonkatsu (Php 290).
I haven't had this overloaded meal for quite a long time, and I was overly impressed with how they convinced someone to eat a lot of seafood in one sitting -- me. I must admit that I'm not a huge fan of seafood, but if I were served this fresh seafood every day, I would gladly eat it. I'm a huge sushi fan, and I highly recommend that you visit this place if you want quality sushi and sashimi at reasonable prices. Plus points to the private rooms too.
I suggest that you call for reservations should you want to get one of the private rooms.
I couldn't wait to go back to this place to again satisfy my love for sushi.
