12/10 December Love Affair! a hip Izakaya Joint by @thegirl_thebull (a review)

As featured in MAKATI: 10 Most Awesome NEW Restaurants in Makati 2014! @MakeItMakati 

12-10 Restaurant-8.jpg
12/10 is a Japanese restaurant by Thea de Rivera and Gab Bustos, also known as The Girl + The Bull. The name of their second restaurant is a tribute to their anniversary date. The restaurant is an izakaya-inspired drinking joint featuring a customize-your-own degustation.

It's like the younger, hip brother of Mecha Uma--another "graduate" of the BF Aguirre Food Street-- offering contemporary Japanese cuisine to a mainstream foodie audience in the metro.

Went on a date with Rache plus the boys at 12/10, and here's what we think it...
