Ba Noi's

There are only a few Vietnamese restaurants in Manila, one addition is Banoi's ...

Banoi's is a hole-in-the-wall type of restaurant in Perea, Makati. It serves authentic Vietnamese cuisine.

Pho Bo/ Beef Pho(P225) - The broth was flavorful,  meat was tender and the noodles were cooked just right, it didn't  get soft after few minutes. The portion was a little smaller than what I expected, but it was respectable. Here's half of my portion:



Well so far their Pho is one of the best I've tasted in Metro Manila.  I just hope that they'll keep the consistency...

That's All!

Sekitori means "sumo wrestler who is ranked in one of the top two professional divisions: makuuchi and juryo".... Ok, that explains why our order which was suppose to be good for 4-5, fed the 8 of us and with some little left over.

Aside from my starter(salmon sashimi) and sake,  we  just ordered for  Kimuchi cyanko broth shabu-shabu.

We were amazed when our order arrived...a mountain of different ingredients such as  raw  meat, seafood and veggies. It included squid and fishballs which were freshly made...


Here, you won't need to DIY the shabu-shabu; the waitress will  cook it in front of  you... 

Kimuchi cyanko broth/Shabu-shabu was a real winner,  the broth itself was flavorful with a pinch of spiciness  that lingers pleasantly inside your mouth and has the warmth of the soup which gives you a nice comfy feel....

Budget: P500 and up per head

That's All!
