Japonesa, the newest restaurant by Notorious Concepts expands its operational hours and is now open everyday starting 11:00AM.

After receiving multiple requests to cater to the daytime market, Japonesa finally opens during lunch time. The Japanese-Peruvian themed restaurant is the third establishment to be opened by Notorious Concepts within the bustling area of Poblacion. Its conceptualization was brought about by the meeting of Notorious Concepts CEO James Thomas and Luis Higa, a Japanese national who lived in Peru for nearly half of his life who is also the Head Chef of Japonesa.

Japonesa was soft-launched last April and has been making waves within the local market as one of the must-try restaurants in the metro. Food enthusiasts and influencers have been raving about the delicious food items that Japonesa offers that include the restaurant’s signature roll called the La Japonesa, and other specialty dishes like the Lengua Katsu, Lomo Saltado, Tapas, Tiraditos, and Ceviches!

For the day drinkers, Japonesa’s cocktails are a must-try! Our crowd favorites like the Watermelon Tub, the 7-spirit Hokage, the Instagrammable Sakura cocktail, and our classic cocktails like the best-selling Amaretto Sour, Cosmopolitan, and Daiquiri to name a few.

Since its soft-opening last April, Japonesa has added new interior details to add to the overall ambiance one of these being the 14-seater table custom made for the restaurant’s main dining room. The aesthetic of this table was inspired by Japanese Kintsugi art which is the technique of repairing broken pottery with resin and gold. The solid wooden slab has gold resin spidered throughout the “cracked” surface which gives a luxuriously sleek look that one does not see everyday. Exuding opulence, this table was intentionally more extravagant because it is meant to be the main attraction for those who wish to host celebrations, parties, and even simple gatherings with family and friends.

Japonesa is open from 11AM – 1:00AM on Sunday – Thursday, and 11:00AM – 3:00AM on Fridays and Saturdays. Located at 5856 Jacobo St., Brgy Poblacion, Makati City.

All guests are encouraged to make a reservation before coming to the restaurant. Walk-ins are welcome but will be subject to table availability. Reservations can be made by messaging its official Facebook page or Instagram page.
