Seifuku is a welcome addition to Marikina’s booming food scene. The Japanese restaurant opened its doors to the public in November 2014 and since then it has gained followings from foodies looking for authentic Japanese food in the Philippines.
Among its loyal customers are Japanese expatriates, as well as residents from Marikina, Quezon City, Pasig, Antipolo, and other cities in the metropolis.
To ensure that the food would capture the original flavors and tastes of Japan, ingredients such as flour, soy sauce, among others are all imported from Japan. The owner, Jhona Yamamuro travels three times a year to Japan just to shop for them and have them shipped to Marikina.
In recent months, Seifuku has become famous for its buffet lunch and dinner available for only P499. A steal, the buffet serves more than 20 dishes, including the restaurant’s best sellers such as its most sought-after salmon sashimi, beef yakiniku, salads (California, Kani), maki, ramen (Gomoku) and a lot more.
The buffet is available Thursday to Sunday, lunch and dinner. For lunch, the buffet table opens at 11 and closes at 2 pm. For dinner, it is available from 6 to 9 pm.
Aside from the food, Seifuku’s decors depicting scenic spots in Japan such as a park in Kyoto displayed on its VIP room are delectable too. Jhona says these pictures have become favorite spots for picture takings among its clients.
The restaurant has a function room upstairs that can accommodate up to 60 people for special meetings, events such as birthdays, anniversaries. It is available for P15,000 consumable without extra charges.
In English, Seifuku means -- “sei” means “success”, while “fuku” means “luck and happiness.”
With its authentic Japanese tastes, value-for-money offerings, there is no doubt that success, luck and happiness will rub off on its customers.
