You might know Takashi Japanese Cuisine for their Panda and Rabbit Curry Rice meals, but you would have to hit their Salcedo Village or Kapitolyo branches to get a taste. Now’s your chance to try any of their hefty bento boxes, sushi rolls, and delicious curry, all from the comfort of your home. Treat yourself to a whole meal with their signature rice bowls—the Katsu Don is a filling crowd favorite—or pick up something light to munch on, like their tasty Crazy Maki.

When you think of Japanese baked goodies, it’s hard to miss restaurant and bakery JiPan, which whips up amazing pastries and desserts alongside other Japanese dishes like ramen and sashimi. Curious and want something unique? Their Salmon Sushi Pizza is a bestseller, with sushi rice replacing the usual dough, salmon sashimi, crunchy tempura bits, ebiko, and secret sauce. Or you can also go for their no-fail set meals, like the Chicken Teriyaki, which includes stir-fried veggies, rice, miso soup, and a side salad, for something quick, filling, and savory.

Yoshinoya is popular for their big rice bowls, like the Japanese Beef Gyudon Bowl or Tempura Bowl, but those aren’t the only thing you can get delivered to your doorstep. Order the Kani Salad if you’re looking for a quick and healthy snack, or try some of their ramen bowls for a quick noodle-soup fix. Yoshinoya also has a wide selection of bento boxes and side dishes, so you’ll definitely find your Japanese favorites here.

For all things tempura, you really can’t go wrong with Tenya. If you’re new to the joint, you might immediately fall in love with their All-Star Tendon, made of black tiger prawns, squid, salmon, kani sticks, green beans, and enoki mushrooms cooked in their classic tempura batter and deep-fried to golden perfection. For cheese lovers (and we know you’re a lot), you can opt for the Isobe Cheese, or gooey cheddar wrapped in roasted seaweed.

Their menu doesn’t stop there, so you’ll need to take a peek at their entire selection via the app.
