A Hodgepodge of Cultures
Whenever I am in Mashitta, one good thing I always notice is the mixture of cultures. There are Koreans, Japanese, Chinese, Taiwanese, and sometimes some Westerners. Most of these visitors are exchange students or simply those who have permanently resided in the country. But regardless of your nationality, the point is you are always welcome in this place.
I honestly haven’t visited Mashitta in quite a long time now since I never had the luxury of being able to spend over 70Php for a single meal (poor me). But I obviously went there a lot since I’ve simply written all the aforementioned food products from memory. And hey, if it’s worth remembering by me, then I could definitely put a stamp of approval at this place and say confidently that this place is worth checking out. [more]
Love Asian Food
Mashitta offers a wide array of food choices. Classic Korean foods like ramyon—a spicy noodle dish with a fiery yet invigorating soup; japche—a sweet dish of dry noodles topped with a bit of vegetables and a tasty sauce; and tuna bibimbap—tuna with cucumber slices wrapped in seaweed stuffed with sticky rice are among the bestsellers. On the other side, Japanese food is another favorite of visitors. It includes ebi tempura—a serving of shrimp dipped in batter and then deep fried; Kani salad—crabstick strips tossed with cucumber strips in creamy Japanese mayonnaise; Katsudon--a rice topping dish of fried meat with a thick delicious sauce; and California maki and crabsticks, of course.
Another thing that I like about Mashitta is the fact that I don’t have to fly outside the country just to have a taste of authentic oriental food. Visiting this place makes me feel like I’m traveling to Korea or Japan. It’s really nice to feel that way because I know I don’t have to spend a lot just to eat something different from the local food here in the Philippines.
What’s more, here’s the catch: all food items are below 100Php. So if you have a hundred pesos to spare while feeling the need to sate your appetite for those Asian tastes, then feel free to splurge on those gratifications. [more]
So, you’re looking for that Korean spice or that Japanese flavor while willing to spend a wee bit for your tummy’s satisfaction? Then why not try Mashitta? This popular place is the only Japanese-Korean restaurant inside the University of the Philippines (UP), and is home to Asian goodness such as zesty ramyon and tasty tempura. Mashitta is often visited by both locals and foreign tourists alike not only because of its outstanding Asian flavors but also because of its cold, airconditioned atmosphere. It’s also an ideal place for studying especially for the UP scholars, and in fact, most of the customers are students looking for a quiet place to concentrate while enjoying a scrumptious meal.
