We tried Hanako Japanese Restaurant along Maginhawa St. one Sunday when I didn’t feel like cooking. It was a bit challenging to find as it’s located inside a building which wasn’t identified on the address I got.
It’s in the inner middle area of the Anytime Fitness Building.
I liked the bright, neat, and predominantly wooden interiors.
We started with some Salmon Sashimi (P239 for 8 pcs). It was pretty okay.
Then we ordered the Ultimate Dynamite Roll (P219). Tuna sushi rolls are topped with shredded crabsticks, seaweed strips, and crunchy tempura breading. We all liked this dish.
We each decided to get a rice bowl. My daughter opted for the Chicken Teriyaki (P159). She said it was okay.
Both my son and I had Beef Yakiniku (P149). I was surprised at how affordable the rice bowls are. Servings are enough to satisfy hungry tummies too. The Beef Yakiniku was extremely flavorful, a tad too salty for my tastes. I think it’d be better if they take it down a notch.
Hubby ordered Tofu Steak (P139) and asked for added Sukiyaki Beef (P60). He liked it at first but eventually he found it overwhelming.
We tried Kakiage (P119) which is Vegetable Tempura. It was average, a bit on the oily side.
We also had Ebi Tempura (P229 for 5 pcs). We thought it had a tad too much breading but it was okay especially considering the price.
Hanako serves average food at affordable prices so it’s a good place for quick meals. Serving sizes are satisfying as well. We all agreed that the food’s flavors are on the strong side though. I think it would be good for them to have some non-fried dish selections on the menu aside from sushi and sashimi. The air-conditioning is great. We were cool and comfortable despite the sweltering heat outside. I also liked the nice and neat interiors.
