Throughout its history, the Philippines has always nurtured a soft spot for Japanese food. Even before the Spaniards colonized these islands, the Japanese have been courting the Filipino palate. In response, Filipinos have embraced and  added their own identity to the East Asian cuisine with the use of local ingredients. Today, the Japanese food scene has a strengthened presence in the Philippines, owing to Filipinos’ developing a taste for more authentic Japanese dishes.

Understanding the ever-increasing demand for more Japanese food, The Bellevue Manila opens Homare. Homare is the Japanese word for honor or glory.

“Homare is a step above other restaurants because it offers high quality, premium Japanese cuisine,” says Patrick Chan, managing director of The Bellevue Manila. He highlights the restaurant's yakinuku rooms with charcoal grills.

For yakiniku, Homare has a formidable fare of premium meat, including its pièce de résistance, Japanese A5 wagyu meat flown in fresh from Japan regularly, and seasoned only very lightly with salt and pepper. The restaurant also offers U.S. Prime and Australian meat and is experimenting with Brazilian and Argentinian cuts.

Homare also serves some of the freshest tuna and salmon in town, delivered whole to the restaurant every other day. 

According to Chan, the key to maintaining the authenticity and the vision of Homare, as with any Japanese restaurant, is to source its products from the best producers of the highest quality.

Wide glass panels that provide natural light to the entire space give the restaurant a bright and warm atmosphere, as well. Those looking to experience a more elevated Japanese dining experience will find that Homare satisfies.
