New Hatchin Japanese Grocery - Probably, the Best Japanese Grocery in Manila

New Hatchin Japanese Grocery-4
Authentic Takoyaki (P78 for 8 pieces)

New Hatchin Japanese Grocery continues to be voted by both Filipino and Japanese as the number 1 Japanese Grocery Store in Manila. It is famous for Fresh Sashimi, Authentic Takoyaki, and Dorayaki (A pancake with sweet red bean paste inside).

Their authentic Takoyaki is made of Octopus, Cabbage, Tempura Flakes, Benishoga (red ginger) with Okonomiyaki sauce, shrimp flakes and noni (seaweed bits) on top. Once you tasted an authentic Takoyaki, you won't settle for anything less than the authentic ones.

Fresh Salmon and Maguro Sashimi! (Depending on the weight it ranges from P100 - P200)

Make sure you have Japanese Soy Sauce and Wasabi at home. You can also buy that from this Japanese store. The fresh sashimi are only available during weekend.

Japanese deli treats (3 for P100) --

We bought the sweet egg, vegetable tempura, and seaweeds with vegetables just to try out their different japanese treats. We were disappointed because the vegetable tempura was soggy, and Rache did not really like the other two.

Hi Anton!

Can you give me the directions going to New Hatchin?

from Ayala go straight until you pass by the Buendia intersection... Go
straight through the winding road and turn left going to South Super hiway.
Turn left again on the first turn and you should see New Hatchin on your

They also have a branch at Cartimar along Taft Avenue. Harder to get to but I think the prices are cheaper than the Makati branch. Try their Uni Sashimi too, yum!

Thanks Anton! Sadly, I'm from the north and I'm not familiar with the area. If I'm coming from Buendia (from Edsa), where do I turn?


Go along Buendia and turn right on Ayala Extension and follow the road going
to south super highway. Turn left at the X intersection and turn left at the
first corner.
