Suzu Kin Japanese Restaurant EDSA: Enjoy Affordable Japanese Food Everyday

I am always dreaming that somewhere near my place, there’s a wonderful little under-the-radar Japanese restaurant where I can find an interesting selection of good, not-crazy-expensive sushi, a bargain of sampler of everything or some nice grilled chicken teriyaki. A warm welcome would be an icing on the cake.

I found it all — plus fresh salmon and more — at Suzu Kin Japanese Restaurant, a medium-size, cozy spot tucked into the busy highway of NIA Road in EDSA.

The Interiors: 

We were warmly welcomed by the Owner — Ms. Leslie dela Cruz and Marketing Manager Ms. Cherry Burwell, of the restaurant when me and my husband arrived last Saturday for a lunch invitation. The place is convivial and relaxed, with light color painted walls, smooth dark tables and fun counter area. And the place was packed with happy faces of customers. 🙂

Some of the cute wall decors 🙂

It also has a function room on the second floor in which can accommodate 15-20 people. Equipped with 42 inches flat screen tv, everyone on this function room will enjoy their time singing their hearts out while having a very good Japanese food. Yes, they serve beers too!

Seated at the table, we ordered a lot. Haha! They were super generous. The procession of the dishes began auspiciously.

The Food:

Yaki Meshi – This is their special fried rice. Soo good because of its distinct taste and generous tiny bits of chicken and pork.

Salmon Sashimi – Freshly cut raw salmon served with wasabi. My favorite. The natural creaminess of the raw salmon was well–maintained meaning it’s really fresh. 🙂

Gyoza – This is our typical steamed ground pork and vegetables. However, the covering was a bit too thick for me which made it sticky to chew.

Fish Tempura – Deep fried Maya-Maya fish. This is actually what my husband ordered first. He got curious and wanted to try this. And surprisingly, it was good. The fish in a tempura batter  plus the softness of the fish was a bit new to us. 🙂

Japanese Crispy Pork Sisig – I honestly don’t know how to describe this dish but I can tell that is our favorite, really. The Japanese mayonnaise plus the generous real pork cubes was superb!! This is truly the start of our visit in Suzu Kin. 🙂

Dessert

Leche Flan – This is the typical leche flan that we know. But one thing that made this extra special, is that it’s frozen. 🙂 Yes! So when you have it in your mouth, it melts like a sweet candy. We loved it! We even ask for our second leche flan. Haha!

Our experience with Suzu Kin was extra-ordinary. The prices are really affordable compared to other Japanese restaurants I’ve been to. And another thing that made its extra-ordinary, is that my husband loved the food. He’s really picky when it comes to Japanese food but with Suzu Kin, he wanted to go back next weekends. Haha!

More coolness? If you had a not-so-good day at the office on Thursday, you can go at Suzu Kin Japanese restaurant at night and join their acoustic night. Relax with a good music and of course, a good set of Japanese food.

Sound fabulous? Wait there’s more! You can now enjoy their affordable dishes right in your own dining table thru their take out or delivery. 🙂

  1. Wow I want the sashimi next to me now!! 😀 Just wondering, is leche flan part of Japanese cuisine or it’s just injected in their menu out of the blue?

    Food all looked great. However downside is there is no other payment option other than cash… 😐
