Wafu Japanese Restaurant in Greenhills Launches Izakaya Festival

Are you ready to celebrate weekends and after work evenings, Japanese style?

Have a taste of the Japanese culture while unwinding and having fun at Wafu’s Izakaya Festival, the first outdoor Japanese-style pub slash street food festival. If you love the beer and bar chow combo, this is for you.

Wooden tables and chairs casually set up to accommodate customers just outside the Japanese restaurant.

“A Japanese Izakaya is typically noisy, informal, and fun,” shares event organizer Mavie Ungco. During dinner, the area outside Wafu transforms into an al fresco dining area to recreate the feel of the izakaya. The paper lanterns, wooden chairs, tables, and food carts and booths lend authenticity to the festival. You even get to watch chefs prepare your food!

There isn’t any doubt about the freshness of the dishes: everything is prepared as you order. It only takes them five to ten minutes tops to get your piping hot food served on your table. If all else fails, you can walk up to the booths and request for an order of whatever they’re in the process of preparing.

The Izakaya festival offers a variety of dishes, with smaller serving size, but filling nonetheless. If at first, you’ve always been intimidated by Wafu and scared at what dining in the said Japanese restaurant can do to your wallet, rest assured that the festival menu items are reasonably priced. Food choices are conveniently priced at Php 120, 150, and 180. Choices include the usual favorites: sashimi and sushi, tempura, grilled yakitori, as well as other deep-fried items. Something to look forward to is how Wafu changed up the cooking style to make these common dishes flavorful and unique-tasting.

All of these is great with beer! For the alcoholic beverages, it’s a choice between ice cold Asahi beer, or a quick shot of sake. Asahi tasted like San Mig Pale Pilsen, so I think heavier beer drinkers might prefer this more than those who enjoy beer occasionally.

Here’s a look at the variety of grilled and deep-fried delights at the Izakaya Festival

My favorite aspect of the Izakaya Festival is that it allows you to have fun and let loose, and dine and enjoy Japanese cuisine in an informal set-up. Admit it, we’ve eaten at too many Japanese restaurants to actually be able to tell the difference anymore. It’s time to up the fun by going for a new experience that isn’t just focused on the flavors and tastes. It’s about time we get to enjoy Japanese food the way our Japanese counterparts do. And the Wafu Izakaya Festival is the perfect place to do it. So grab your friends for a weekend of dining fun and head over to the first Japanese outdoor pub and streetfood festival at Wafu Greenhills.
