Jipan is well-known as one of the homes of good breads and other pastries. I mean, no one can deny that Japanese breads are one of the most loved pastries in the market – soft, tasty, and affordable.
Itching for new eats in the metro? Me and my sis never thought of dining in JiPan like ever because we knew it only with their breads. Jipan, apparently, is a cafe/ bakeshop offering authentic and quality Japanese food served fresh on the table. From breads, to sushi, ramen, even mochi donuts. I have to say that this is one of the best Japanese cafes I’ve ever been to.
Glorietta is one of our go-to malls because it’s just minutes away from work. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I’m noticing Japanese restaurants are multiplying like everyday around the metro. Iba talaga nag impluwansya ng mga Hapon. Can’t blame the Pinoy, because Japanese cuisine is indeed a treasure!
Other than their best-tasting bread, we got try try only two of their dishes. Okonomiyaki and gyoza are two of my favorites and two of the dishes I am very particular with.
Okonomiyaki is a Japanese pancake make with a variety of ingredients. The name is derived from the word okonomi, meaning “how you like” or “what you like”, and yaki meaning “grill”. What we ordered is the seafood okonomiyaki that made it more comparable with seafood takoyaki, only better.
Gyoza is a half moon-shaped dumplings usually served as an appetizer or side dish, fiilled with ground meat and vegetables and then wrapped in a thin dough sheet.
Among many branches, Jipan also has a nice place at Second Floor, Glorietta 4, Ayala Center, Glorietta Complex, Makati City. View their full menu on Zomato (Jipan), and follow them on IG (@jipan_ph) for more details and updates!
