Bijin Nabe at S Maison: The Japanese Beauty Hot Pot

Ever since we traveled to Japan, we are now partial into eating Japanese food when dining out (this applies just for the hubby and me, as our little boy still loves fried chicken).   Japan food taste so delicious that a lot of Pinoys are very fond of eating it.

So we have been visiting Japanese restaurants lately and one of them is Bijin Nabe by Tsukada Nojo at S Maison in Pasay.  What made us choose this restaurant is because they serve Japanese Beauty Hot Pot.



The interior of Bijin Nabe looks like any other Japanese restaurant.  It has wooden tables and chairs, and only few couches.  All tables have built-in induction cooker for cooking their specialty dish: the Golden Collagen Chicken Soup.



Bijin Nabe serves several Japanese dishes but you are required to order the Golden Collage Chicken Soup.  A portion of this cost Php750.  One portion is good for two people.  



The Golden Collagen Chicken Soup is served first and heated at the induction cooker in the table.  It looks like a tofu.  It has 2 cuts of chicken and the staff will serve it for you to taste the soup without any added ingredients yet.  The soup is thick and very tasty.




After which, the staff will put all ingredients in the remaining collagen soup.  The ingredients include prawn, lettuce, red radish, sunflower sprout, enoki mushroom, baby sweet potato leaves, baby corn, lady’s finger, deep fried tofu, zucchini, fresh black fungus, and tori tsukune (ground chicken meat).  You will choose the noodle you want to add in your soup.  We chose the Tsuru Noodle.



The Golden Collagen Chicken Soup with complete ingredients is still tasty but no longer thick.



We also ordered the Chicken Nanban Original.  It cost Php295.  This is also the chicken Karaage but with sweet and sour nanban sauce.  Of all the Chicken Karaage I tasted here in the Philippines, this is the closest taste to that of Japan’s.



To complete our meal, we order their Japanese rice.  A cup of Japanese rice cost Php60.  The Japanese rice they serve has thick and rounded grains.



Overall, the food the Bijin Nabe served is very tasty and delicious.  The restaurant’s ambience is very cozy and comfortable.  However, their staffs need to smile more – though all of them were very attentive to our needs.  We had an awesome dining experience and we will definitely go back to Bijin Nabe as we had an almost authentic Japanese restaurant experience here.

  1. Me and my husband also loves Japanese food! But we haven't been to Japan yet, so parang pwede pa pala madagdagan yung love namin for the food and culture in case we visit Japan. I've only been to a few authentic Jap restaurants and we haven't went to this place yet. Naintriga ako sa collagen soup. Bigla kong naisip kung may pampaganda ba ng skin yan! :)

  3. We love going at S Maison, malakas makasosyal. We especially like their Directors Cinema, but would normally brave SM MOA crowd for food. Will Bijin Nabe in our next visit.
