New Hatchin Japanese Grocery – Probably, the Best Japanese Grocery in Manila


Authentic Takoyaki (P78 for 8 pieces)

New Hatchin Japanese Grocery continues to be voted by both Filipino and Japanese as the number 1 Japanese Grocery Store in Manila. It is famous for Fresh Sashimi, Authentic Takoyaki, and Dorayaki (A pancake with sweet red bean paste inside).

Their authentic Takoyaki is made of Octopus, Cabbage, Tempura Flakes, Benishoga (red ginger) with Okonomiyaki sauce, shrimp flakes and noni (seaweed bits) on top. Once you tasted an authentic Takoyaki, you won’t settle for anything less than the authentic ones.


Fresh Salmon and Maguro Sashimi! (Depending on the weight it ranges from P100 – P200)

Make sure you have Japanese Soy Sauce and Wasabi at home. You can also buy that from this Japanese store. The fresh sashimi are only available during weekend.


Japanese deli treats (3 for P100) —

We bought the sweet egg, vegetable tempura, and seaweeds with vegetables just to try out their different japanese treats. We were disappointed because the vegetable tempura was soggy, and Rache did not really like the other two.

  1. hi anton! im curious about the dorayaki. is it good? i tasted something like this back in japan but its called imagawayaki or something like that.sarap!

  2. I’ve gotta try some of those takoyakis … i used to snack on those whenever i’ve passed a stand.
    had them in a makati and a baguio mall not too long ago. sarappp.

  3. Hi, Despite of heavy traffic, I was a bit disappointed went I went in there today. I was hoping that they have tokayaki balls. I was informed that they only serve it during Saturdays and Sundays 🙁

  5. hi anton! i also bought several things at the grocery: japanese mayonnaise (squeezable big bottle, cheaper than rustans), tonkatsu sauce (bulldog), yakiniku sauce (for dipping) and mackerel fillets (ready to grill, just add salt). have to go back 🙂

  6. from Ayala go straight until you pass by the Buendia intersection… Go
    straight through the winding road and turn left going to South Super hiway.
    Turn left again on the first turn and you should see New Hatchin on your
    left.

  7. They also have a branch at Cartimar along Taft Avenue. Harder to get to but I think the prices are cheaper than the Makati branch. Try their Uni Sashimi too, yum!

  8. Thanks Anton! Sadly, I’m from the north and I’m not familiar with the area. If I’m coming from Buendia (from Edsa), where do I turn?
    Thanks!

  9. Go along Buendia and turn right on Ayala Extension and follow the road going
    to south super highway. Turn left at the X intersection and turn left at the
    first corner.
