Tokyo Power Rice

From Japan to the Philippines - welcome Tokyo Power Rice!



If you're looking for something to remind you of Japan, this just might be the place for you. I recently came home from a week-long trip to Tokyo (see photos on my Instagram), so coming home, I missed the cool weather, the friendly people, the city, and of course, the food! 

Good thing I discovered Tokyo Power Rice! It's a franchise of Tokyo Chikarameshi from Japan brought by the partnership between Tao Corporation (Philippines) and Sanko Marketing Foods (Japan). It currently has twelve outlets in Japan, and two in Manila (Pasong Tamo and Mall of Asia)!

Here, every step of the cooking process is given meticulous attention. When I say meticulous, I mean it. From the cooking of the meat to the caramelizing method of the onions to putting the rice in to the adding of the sauce to the variety of condiments available. Every so often, representatives from Sanko Marketing visits the Philippines to check that the quality of the food served is up to par with their standards in Japan. 

Their bestseller in Japan is the Grilled Beef Power Rice (P165).

I wouldn't be surprised if it were the bestseller here too. The beef is flavorful and the portions, reasonable - it's definitely good value for money.

They also have numerous Tokyo rice bowls available, like this Grilled Pork with Vegetables (P150).

You can also get it with curry (P160) or egg (P150). Affordable, right? 

My favorite though has to be the Grilled Beef with Cheese. Would you believe it's only Php 135?? Even I can't believe it. The saltiness of the cheese blends really well with the sweetness of the beef. It's so good, I swear!

Those working in Makati are so lucky because Tokyo Power Rice delivers! I'm really crossing my fingers that they open a branch somewhere north soon!

If you like lots of sauce in your meals, I recommend the Tori Karaage Curry (P250). When people think about curry, they immediately think it's Indian curry, but Japanese curry is very different from it. It has a lighter taste to it and probably use different ingredients, so you don't have to worry about getting an upset stomach.

Tokyo Power Rice imports their curry sauce from Chikarameshi in Japan to keep it as authentic as possible. Aside from that, they actually only use Japanese rice in all their dishes. For them, it's all about the quality.

For shrimp lovers, they have the Ebi Power Tendon (P250).

Four pieces of tempura battered shrimps doused in their tasty tendon sauce - yum!

Just look at that tempura ❤❤Tokyo Power Rice
Something new: the Kakiage Tendon Rice Bowl!
Tokyo Power Rice
It's so new, it doesn't have a price yet! It's basically white onions with salted shrimps. I'm personally not a huge fan of onions, but I tried this and I like that there's a burst of saltiness with every bite thanks to the shrimps.

Another dish that's not on the menu yet is the Fish Tempura that comes with tempura sauce. It's perfect for those trying to avoid meat this lenten season.
