For only P295.00, you will get a decent slice of pork meat, refillable Japanese rice and cabbage at Watami.

Fresh from the province for the Christmas holidays, my brother Jem and I stormed our way to Makati on a rainy Wednesday afternoon to exchange my good old magnetic striped Banco De Oro (BDO) Automated Teller Machine (ATM) card for an EMV ATM card. EMV stands for Europay, Mastercard, Visa, the original developers of the chip technology to minimize fraud. For more information about EMV, click here.

You can no longer use your old ATM card after January 31, 2018. Go to your Banco De Oro branch to claim your EMV ATM Debit Card.

Apparently, my old ATM card will work only until the end of January 2018 and we do not want to start the year with a near expiry ATM card, do we?

After BDO, we were famished and we went around Greenbelt 2 to look for Japanese cuisine. We ended up in Watami.

If you are looking for a Japanese casual restaurant in Greenbelt, i.e., a Japanese restaurant that serves authentic Japanese food sans the usual “formalities” of a Japanese restaurant, then you might want to try Watami.

Watami is located on the ground floor of Greenbelt 2.

The crew was friendly and attentive. Walang suot na ‘horseblinds’ in short (they were not wearing horseblinders)  Don’t we all just hate it when they pretend to be busy and blind? Lol. Overall, service was good. The manager even approached us  to check if we needed anything else.

Jem ordered salmon sashimi and Watami salad, too. Based on the munch rate that he was going, I could say that he enjoyed both.

Watami Salad P255. Serves two.

We capped the day off with a lively conversation and coffee.
