Tucked within Little Tokyo (2277 Chino Roces St, Makati) is HANA, a hole in the wall that serves the perfect takoyaki balls. Not the kind you'd normally pick up from a stall in the mall, but the real stuff.
There's an assortment of sushi and sashimi to choose from but we were there only for snacks so a good house tea and a couple of dishes were enough then.
Just outside Hana lies "the rest" of Little Tokyo, where you can choose to dine under Japanese lanterns. Perfect with your choice of sake and some other Japanese alcoholic drinks.
But we chose to stay inside. Just me & my teen. By the time we stepped out, the sun has set and Little Tokyo was beginning to look like an alley from somewhere in ... Errr, Tokyo. 😄
