Branded for its Japanese cakes and specialty coffee, Fujinoya now has Japanese meals. This is in partnership with Ichiriki Chaya, known for its authentic Japanese Food. Fujinoya Japanese desserts and specialty coffee in the metro, only a few cafés in Cebu would come to mind and Fujinoya is one of the little who’d top the list.
Bloggers and writers were invited on the launching of their Japanese meals last March 16, 2017. On the same instance we also had a firsthand experience in making Onigiri. Also known as Japanese rice balls, onigiri are typically formed in trilateral shape, stuffed with tasty filling and wrapped in nori (seaweed). If the West have sandwiches as go-to meals, Japan has onigiri for nippy and easy snacks.
In disparity with the intricate process of sushi making, with onigiri, one can get inventive and crafty. Though traditionally, onigiri is formed in a triangular shape, it can also take a cylindrical form. The classic onigiri fillings are pickled plum, cooked salmon and chopped pickles.
Both restaurants have a repute for serving authentic Japanese food. Ichiriki Chaya has been operating years and is known for their rice meals and noodle meals, as well as Japanese snacks. Fujinoya, on the other hand, has been a trusted brand when it comes to Japanese cakes and pastries for almost three years.
Apart from Japanese udon, sushi and sashimi platter above, they also serve Ramen (Shoyu, Chasu, Tonkotsu, Gomoku, Miso, Hiyashi Chuka and Chyanpon). Fujinoya also now offers a variation of Rice meals such as Ebi Chahan, Gomoku Chahan, Katsu Curry Rice, Gyu Don, and Omelette rice. Fro those who love set meals, they also have Bento Lunch Boxes (Tempura, Tonkatsu, Pork Shogayaki, Chicken Teriyaki, Chicken Karaage and Chuka)
