It is no secret that not only Japanese people love Japanese cuisine, many other nationalities like Filipinos seek comfort on Japanese delicacies. There is just this sense of lightness in delicious Japanese dishes that tugs the heart of people and so if you are one of those many people, make way for this recently opened modern Japanese food village in Poblacion: Platina!
Consisted of 16 original specialty stalls all the way from Japan, this two-storey food village will have you overwhelmed with a ton of delectable offerings you would want to get your hands onto and sink your teeth into, but do not worry because we are here to guide you and show you some of what you can go for here at Platina.

To satisfy that craving of yours which is of more yumminess, get your fix with Tsuru Kame’s Carbonara Udon (M Php 290 | L Php 380) or TeppanYaki Ajinobo’s Ajinobo Special (Php 390) that is of shrimp, squid, beef, pork, beef tendon, egg.

Moving onto meaty options, do not miss out on the Pork Ginger (Small Php 210 | Medium 280) from Pigman as well as the delicious Pork Gyoza (4 pieces Php 160) of no other than Wazami Japanese Gyoza.

But of course, Platina has so much more to offer as these are not the only stalls you can order from, especially for drinks because, their Wine Public Stand has Cocktails like the Sensation, Barbados, and Mojitas; as well as Mocktails like the Pineapple Shower and a fun sour drink which is the Lemon Sour.
The notion that Japanese cuisine is expensive would like to be debunked by Platina as they do not only offer that special, authentic Japanese taste, but also they are very much affordable! With almost everything homemade, Platina would like to give their diners a feel of what the atmosphere in Tokyo actually is, so if you have not been to Tokyo and is looking for an alternative for the time being or you miss being in Tokyo, head onto Platina this second!
