Genki Sushi Makes Japanese Fast Food Fun in Manila

June 3, 2020

My first (and probably only) encounter with Genki Sushi was at Causeway Bay, Hong Kong. While it was not the best sushi in town, the familiar grumpy face becomes quite tempting if you’re craving a quick, cheap, sushi fix.


Finally having its conveyor belts up and running at the new Bonifacio Stopover Pavillon since this Monday, Genki Sushi serves its fare at the same affordable price point, catering to the Filipino salaryman who wants a fast and satisfying meal. Rice bowls and nigiris seem to be the crowd pleasers, dessert needs loads of improvement, but the service was exceptional.

While it’s a far cry from Causeway Bay, dishes that are decent enough to be worth your buck are the Steamed Egg Custard, Black Sugar Fried Tofu Skin, Seared Crab with Black Pepper, Seared Salmon with Pollock Roe, and the Surf Clam Gunkan. Check out more of their offerings below.

    It’s a pleasant surprise their crab maki is made from real crab claw meat and not fake kani
