Jupiter Street may not be the first place to come to mind for a food trip in Makati, but little do most people know, this place hides one of the best Japanese food discoveries in the metro.

Mitsuyado Sei-men may look nondescript along the highway of Jupiter Street, but inside, you'll feel like you've just been transported to Japan with their cleverly designed interiors. The cobblestone floors, tin roof walls, and wooden tables and chairs all work together to create the illusion that you're dining in one of those quaint ramen eateries in Tokyo. The mood is fitting since it is the first branch of this Japan-based restaurant franchise, so you can expect authenticity when you dine.

Mitsuyado Sei-men offers all kinds of Japanese dishes, but it is mostly famous as a ramen joint. The restaurant calls itself the "House of Tsukemen" as it specializes in a unique kind of ramen called tsukemen. Unlike the usual ramen where the noodles are submerged in broth, the noodles and the sauce for tsukemen are served separately.

Dessert is right next door
Another special thing about Mitsuyado Sei-men is its neighbor: Yamato Bakery and Cafe. A door connects the two establishments so if you want to have some pastries for dessert, simply head to Yamato through the adjoining door.

Yamato has a wide selection of delectable bread, pastries, and cakes. Aside from having them as dessert, customers also like to buy them for pasalubong.

So the next time you find yourself in Makati City, swing by Jupiter Street and enjoy Mitsuyado Sei-men and Yamato Bakery and Cafe's irresistible Japanese fare.
