Ichiba: Japanese Market

Ichiba: Japanese Market is the first ever Japanese Seafood Market Concept to enter the Philippines. Inspired by the large wholesale market of Tsukiji, the delights from Gastronome Kuromon, the diversity of seafood from Kyushu, and the expansive seafood and tasty crabs from Hokkaido, Ichiba: Japanese Market seeks to redefine your dining experience.

Takoyaki Station

Each table is provided with a wooden number block, you would use this wooden block to tell the stalls or stations your order and your table number. The idea is not a sit down, menu type of restaurant. You can roam and check around, choose your order from a certain station, and when you are done, go back to your table and wait for your orders.
