Genki Sushi, the crazy sushi sensation that literally brought amazing selections and beyond from Japan to Manila by (table-top) train, recently launched additions to their extensive menu of Japanese bites and rice meals.
Spoilers ahead: They’re all delish!
Their menu featuring favorites like Chirashi Don, Seared Salmon with Black Pepper, Chicken Teriyaki Don, Unadon, and California Maki, just grew with the addition of three new seafood selections and a beverage with their own take on green tea.
Get comfy in your classic red booth, tap on the iPad menu, and get ready for their Kousoku Express Train to bring these new items straight from the Genki Sushi kitchen to your table:
Seared Creamy Garlic Scallops
The faint smokiness from the torched creamy sauce beautifully compliments the sweetness of the fresh scallops. This sushi is rich in flavor and if you love seafood, you should definitely try this. We won’t blame you if you don’t want to share this with anyone else.
Premium Grilled Salmon Belly Nigiri
There’s a reason why salmon is so popular among the Japanese: Aside from being healthy, salmon is an umami bomb waiting to explode in your mouth. With the slight char from the grill and the tangy lemon, this new nigiri is bound to be a favorite.
Hana Salmon Sushi
This is almost too pretty to eat, but one taste and you’ll lick your plate clean. Named after the Japanese word for “flower”, Hana Salmon Sushi uses fresh salmon as a wrap instead of nori. Inside is rice topped with creamy Japanese mayo and some ikura.
Their take on green tea latter tastes the way a matcha drink should taste: not too sweet, earthy, with a tad of bitterness in the end. It’s a good palate cleanser.
A couple of months ago, they launched two Filipino-inspired dishes that have become best-sellers since then. Make sure to try their Japanese Tuna Adobo and Minced Pork (their version of sisig) on your next visit as well.
Genki Sushi Philippines has stores at the Bonifacio Stopover Pavilion and SM Aura Premier in Bonifacio Global City, U.P. Town Center and SM North EDSA in Quezon City, Ayala Malls The 30th in Pasig City, and SM Megamall in Mandaluyong City.
