I like the brunch crowd ambiance at Nobu. The restaurant is full but it does not feel cramped, and each station only has good food to offer and doesn’t overwhelm.

Palabok udon! The noodles are a bit fat and filling.

Thin breaded pork slices. The boys enjoyed the katsu with the sweet sauce.

Chicken Inasal with Nobu marinade. The white meat did not absorb the flavor of the sauce.


Nobu Sunday Brunch-30.jpg
Eat-all-you-can Sea Bass.


Nobu Sunday Brunch-61.jpg
My favorite Japanese Pizza Okonomiyaki. I like it topped with overflowing bonito flakes and the sweet tamarind-like sauce.


Kushiyaki Station

Instead of tempura or teppanyaki buffet, Nobu serves a Yakitori grill buffet.

The meats and vegetables are skewered and grilled upon order.

Mushroom and eggplant.

Different kinds of meat–pork, beef, and chicken.  One of the most popular though is the chicken skin.

I like the anticucho and wasabi pepper sauces on the side.


Meat Carving Station

You can add more rosemary miso sauce or have a creamy mint tofu on the side.

The boys loved the strawberry and meringue in strawberry chocolate coating.


Nobu Sunday Brunch-53.jpg
The parfait balls look good from the outside but are actually bland on the inside.


Nobu Sunday Brunch-54.jpg
The black sesame and green tea housemade ice creams were a hit.


Nobu Sunday Brunch-55.jpg
My favorite was the chia parfait with coconut and mango. You can even make it a la mode with ice cream.


The Nobu Manila Experience City of Dreams-1.jpg

We love the NOBU Sunday Brunch because it’s well-curated and offers a different kind of Japanese buffet with Nobu’s special sauces. I always look forward to the “Nobufied” Filipino dishes and the eat-all-you-can Kushiyaki station, which adds a familiar street food feel to the brunch. 

It’s a perfect venue for celebrating the very important people in your life. Budget about P3,000/head.

Reserve in advance to make sure you get the best seats. You can also go on a Nobu staycation to complete the experience.
