You’ve heard it right, Japanese Carenderia in Cebu! We had same reaction, “What, is it even possible?!” Japanese Restaurants are known to be very expensive & most of the people cannot even afford to be in those kind of restaurants. Joed’s Lutong Hapon proved me wrong, tasty Japanese dishes can be affordable and shared with it’s exquisite taste.
“Carenderia” is a native term for a Filipino Restaurant that offers affordable rates for Filipino dishes that is in a structure close to a native Filipino home. Joed’s Lutong Hapon corrected that description, it is not only exclusive for Filipino dishes but also includes variety of dishes all over the world that offers authentic cuisines at a very low price. What can get any better than that?!
Joed’s Lutong Hapon recently transferred location due to its high demand and popularity that it could no longer accommodate its customers in its original location. The restaurant focuses more on “Izakaya” dining which means they serve food to accompany the drinks, in which they are popular, casual places for after-work drinking. You would also be able to find paper lanterns in their restaurant because these are traditionally found infront of Izakaya.
If you wanna get a picture on the food they serve and how it costs, take a look at this:
Amazing, isn’t it? They have a lot more choices on their menu besides the one that is posted on their wall.
More food choices, more of Japanese food and more satisfaction to your Japanese food cravings. The thing that impresses me most is the way their food taste. It may not be likely similar to authentic Japanese food but they have a certain kind of fusion that would enhance the taste of Japanese food that would suit and compliment our Filipino palate. Let’s try to say with their California Maki, usual ingredients would be cucumber, crabstick and mango rolled with sushi rice and nori(dried seaweed) but with their own twist, they have added cream cheese to compliment & enhance its taste which makes it different but it does really taste good than any ordinary California Maki.
