I loooooove sushi. Like I absolutely, incredibly LOOOOOOVE sushi. My only problem with it is that sushi is pretty expensive in most restaurants. So, to satisfy my frugal self, I asked some friends where I could find affordable (but still delicious – this part was very important, of course!) sushi in Manila. And voila, I am sharing the list with you! Here it is in alphabetical order.

For good sushi at a good price, Inari’s Japanese-inspired dishes often come to mind. Located near MV3 gate and FEU Diliman, you can get your fill of yummy ramen and sushi here.

Literally everything on Kokoro’s menu is crazy delicious. In fact, everything is so good, it’s almost impossible not to go home with takeout because you’ll end up wanting more when you get home. They don’t skimp on ingredients or flavor here, and you’ll definitely get your money’s worth. Great service, too!

Nomiya is a great place to go to for authentic Japanese food. Sushi aside, they’ve also got wagyu cubes, delicious teppanyaki, and lots of choices for those who love extra spice on their food. That aside, they also have good service – which is definitely a plus for me whenever I eat out.

Monica Li highly recommends Rolls Republic because it isn’t your usual sushi. As she puts it, they’ve got ‘kanin and ulam sa isang hawak‘. Points for affordability; plus points for convenience and practicality! They’ve got so many rolls choices, your problem will be deciding what to get!

A personal favorite, Ta Ke Ho Me can satisfy any sushi need at an affordable price. What I love about them is that they are so convenient with their sushi stands. Just order and take it wherever you need to go – perfect for people who are always on the go like me. I also love how they always remind you to eat it right away for the utmost freshness. They come in cute takeout boxes to boot!
ToriTori Kushiyaki Snack Bar
Location: 197 Wilson St. San Juan del Monte
Facebook Page: https://web.facebook.com/toritori.ph/
Obviously, as their name suggests, ToriTori specializes in yakitori, such as bacon enoki, butabara, and Japanese wagyu. However, they can also satisfy your sushi and sashimi needs with their delicious sushi and sashimi platters.
