kimchi rolls.

New breakfast offerings

Kitsho is now serving breakfast to its diners, which begins at nine in the morning and ends at 12 midnight. So instead of two meal times, Kitsho will now serve sumptuous Japanese food starting at breakfast, then lunch unto dinner.

Diners can choose whether they want comfort food for breakfast or a traditional Japanese meal of grilled fish () of either sake shoychi (salmon) or Japanese saba (mackerel) with miso soup, and rice. For those who prefer sandwiches, you may opt for either the clubhouse, teriyaki sandwich, German franks, ham French toast, or bacon and egg choices.

Meat lovers could go for the sauteed beef teppan plate while pasta lovers could opt for Kitsho’s version of the Neapolitana. Breakfast comes with unlimited servings of brewed coffee.

Moreover, breakfast time is also the best time to sample executive chef Keita Kamimoto’s delectable sushi such as the kimchi rolls with its tangy swirls of Korean spice, or the irresistibly tasty unagi (eel) roll. While chef Keita can prepare all Japanese dishes, sushi and sashimi making has become his forte. In fact, he can prepare just about anything not on the menu, if a diner so wishes, as long as the ingredients are available in the kitchen.

Kitsho Japanese Restaurant is located at the ground floor of Hotel Jen Manila, Roxas Boulevard. For reservations, dial the restaurant’s trunkline no. (02) 795-8888 local 2312 or (02) 924-3623. You may also get in touch with Malou Manzano by calling (02) 877-63-79 or sending an email to mckmilleniumfood88@gmail.com.

A healthy snack

There are those days when cravings strike in between meals, meetings, and just about any activity during our busy days, but a simple nibble can’t cut it. One satisfying treat that hits the right spots is Jollibee Tuna Pie.
Bite into the golden pie crust that’s fried perfectly to a crisp and savor the combination of textures and flavors from the generous amounts of chunky tuna flakes, peppery sauce, cheese and vegetables.

The Tuna Pie’s complex combination of two contrasting flavors and textures is what makes it so delicious, which is why it has become so popular among Filipino snacking connoisseurs. Each bite of the flaky pie crust is met with the indulgent creamy tuna filling that provides a leveled-up experience.

Tuna Pie is available in all Jollibee stores nationwide for dine-in, take-out, delivery, and drive-thru transactions starting 1 February.
