Hamaru Yakitori and Sushi’s Oyster Motoyaki and Ryujin Roll at The Food Hive

If we’re being really nitpicky, including Hamaru on this list could count as cheating—they’re not exactly a food stall but rather a “secret” Japanese restaurant inside The Food Hive. But you’ll forget all talk of technicalities at their spread of excellent Japanese fare. The Oyster Motoyaki (P195) is an easy standout, with oysters shipped fresh from Aklan, baked and topped with chili, garlic mayo, cauliflower puree, and tobiko or fish roe. While the Ryujin Roll (P480) is large enough to share, you’ll be tempted to keep this dish to yourself, though finishing the hefty rolls of tiger prawn, salmon, tuna, and avocado is no easy feat.



The Food Hive is at 80 Visayas Avenue, Barangay Vasra, Diliman, Quezon City.
