we were trying to look for a dinner place after spending time at the 16th Philippine Hotair Balloon Fiesta. we had our booth and I admit we really are hungry despite that we just had a potato store beside us. but the job is very tiring and we are drained out from the people lining up just to get a planner or any special prize that they can get.
we cleaned up and got ready for a gastronomic adventure in Angeles City. most of the stations are bars, hotels and there is minimal restaurants that can cater family dinner.
so we stopped here at NIJI Restaurant. a Japanese-themed area where people come in. there are 2 separate areas, the normal table with chairs and the other one is with a built in cooking pot that looks like you're sitting on the floor. as customary, you have to put off your shoes in a Japanese home.
then we ordered teppanyaki. amazing that the service was fast and we don't have to wait for our orders to come. the food is well prepared, well-presented and since you have to cook it yourself, it was fun doing it.
with only the three of us, we only spent around Php 1300 and we're really satisfied of what we ate. we will definitely come back when we return next year!
NIJI Japanese Restaurant is located at the Friendship Highway near Clark Freeport Zone, in Angeles City, Pampanga.
