Marufuku Japanese Restaurant – Ortigas Center, Pasig

I wanted grilled wagyu cubes, so I thought of eating at Izakaya Kikufuji with Mikmik, but with the terrible traffic caused by APEC, we were stuck in Ortigas and ate at Marufuku instead.

Marufuku is one of the most popular restos in Pasig and Miko has always liked their sashimi.

It’s tucked in San Miguel Avenue, near Pearl Drive. It kinda has a hole-in-the-wall feel. The place wasn’t too crowded and service was quick and friendly.

They have dozens of choices in their food and drinks list, including Japanese whisky. :D

We had fresh and juicy Norwegian salmon sashimi (P480),

sweet and spicy anchovies as appetizer,

the colorful and enjoyable Chirashi Don that’s served with miso soup (P650),

the disappointing Tonkotsu Ramen (around P350) with pale aji tamago and indistinct broth,

tender but bordering on bland Wagyu Beef Cubes and Wagyu Beef Tongue,

grilled asparagus wrapped in glorious bacon (all 3 grilled are around P100 per stick)

and the highlight of our dinner, the delectable Black Sesame Ice Cream (P180/scoop).

Needless to say, we’d stick to sashimi and ice cream if we do go back to Marufuku. For grilled meats and veggies, Kikufuji‘s yakiniku still costs less expensive and tastes better. For ramen, Yushoken is still our favorite. Marufuku is a good Japanese restaurant, but there are better restos with the same price range.

  1. marufuku is too expensive for the quality of their food. i agree that they have good selection of sashimi though, very fresh. and their ice creams are really good.
