Abe San Japanese Resto at Brgy. Malinta, Valenzuela City

A few months ago, a dining place caught the attention of One Valenzuela as she and a handful of students traversed Gov. I. Santiago Road in their school service on the way to the National Library. It read "Abe San". From there, she took a mental note that she will visit it in the future.

This Good Friday, One Valenzuela went for a joy ride in the city together with hubby and Little One Valenzuela. After stopping by Pasolo Maternity and Medical Clinic, they then went to  Abe San. 

Luckily, Abe San was open. It has a wide open space for parking vehicles. By observation, the place can accommodate a small group of people and she somewhat wished it was a bit cooler especially now that we're in the middle of summer. But after being greeted with a warm smile by Mr. Abe (he even took their motorcycle helmets and placed them neatly at the side of the table), One Valenzuela knew that they are in for a treat.

Abe San Japanese Resto
Kawaii paper lanterns!
The Japanese restaurant was opened five months ago by Mr. Abe and his Filipino wife. Mr. Abe cooks the food for diners. You would not mind the modesty of the place knowing that your sashimi shall be prepared by a real Japanese. This scenario reminded One Valenzuela of Suzuki Japanese Carinderia in Tondo, Manila

You'll find the following in Abe San's printed menu: tonkatsu, gyudon, oyakodon, katsudon, burger steak, fish fry, gyoza, koroke, omurice, tonteki, teriyaki (pork and chicken), tempura, ika ring, french fries, oden, sashimi, and sushi. Most of them are in the 35 to 60 pesos price range. Only the ika rings, tempura, and sashimi are in the Php100-150 bracket. 

Got no idea of what you will get? Look at Abe San's walls
Asking for their bestsellers, Mrs. Abe suggested something which was not on the menu. "Try our ramen.", she said. After a while, the group settled for two bowls of ramen (Php120 per serving), a plate of gyoza (Php35), tamago (Php70), and two bottles of ice cold soft drinks.

Abe San's Ramen (Php120.00)
Tamago (Php70.00)
Mrs. Abe said that one can also order a set of this at Php380.00. 
The ramen's soup was really good! Ang sarap! One Valenzuela definitely enjoyed the ramen. The gyoza is satisfactory. Hubby loved the tamago, especially its sticky rice.  

There's a reason to go back here since Mr. Abe's wife recommended One Valenzuela to try out another type of ramen. This and the other food listed on the menu made her look forward into visiting Abe San on another occasion. Before the group got on the motorcycle, Mr. Abe said "Salamat!". 

You are welcome. Until our next visit! 
There is beauty in simplicity.

  4. Hi.

    I want to drop by the shop by I can't seem to find it.
    I tried taking po yung street na katapat mismo nung gate ng St. Louis College.
    Hindi po ba doon?
    Sorry, di po kasi ako familiar dun sa area.
    But I want to try their food so I hope you could help me out.

    Thanks in advance. <(_ _)>

    1. Hi, Keiri! Hindi po doon ang Abe San. Ang Abe San po ay along Gov. I. Santiago Road. Landmark: Jollibee Malinta near San Isidro Labrador Parish. Derecho lang po yung tatahakin ninyo, lalagpas ng Malinta palengke, lagpas ng kaunti sa Bible Institute for the Deaf. Hindi po sa St. Louis College (School), dahil Maysan Road po yan. Pa-update po kung nakarating kayo. Kindly send me an e-mail if you still cannot locate Abe San. Will send a sketch. :)

    2. hi can you send sketch galing sa karuhatan(7/11) thanks !

    3. Kindly send an email to so I can send the sketch back to you.
