Isabel and I LOVE Japanese food 🙂 Isabel is one of my best friends from High School and she’s our head receptionist at our little nail salon. Haha!  She celebrated her birthday last month and I was so glad she picked Mangetsu for her birthday lunch! 🙂

Mangetsu is located at 38 Jupiter Street, Bel-Air, Makati.

Mozzarella Cheese Risotto. An Italian-inspired rice dish (P260). This is Isabel’s favorite. I wouldn’t have ordered this normally. I found this combi to be a bit strange. But OMG. LOVED IT.

They don’t judge me by the amount of food that’s on my plate. LOL!

Every time I eat with these guys, we have a feast!  Always ordering too much but… the more the merrier! 🙂

 Thank you for an awesome lunch, Isabel! ‘Til the next banquet 🙂
