Tambai Yakitori Snackhouse
Another OG pioneer in the Poblacion food scene is Tambai, a stall that serves Filipino-style yakitori that are delicious and (fairly) affordable. A stick of pork yakitori, for example, is PHP50 (US$.97), while a larger stick, on the other hand, is PHP120 (US$2.32). Diners can pair this with a serving of Japanese rice (PHP50/US$.97), kimchi fried rice (PHP85/US1.64), or cold soba (PHP75/US$1.45).
Japanese drinks are also available including the iconic highball (PHP250/US$4.83) whiskey cocktail that will surely give drinkers a good buzz.
