Considering I work in Quezon City, it’s a wonder I’ve only explored a fraction of the gastronomic choices the other side of Quezon Avenue has to offer.
This is why I grabbed at the chance to dine at Hodai together with my foodie friends.
Located in a sprawling renovated two-storey house along Examiner Street which was originall built in the 1960s, Hodai offers a cozy and comfortable atmosphere for its diners, perfect for group get-togethers and family outings. The decor is minimalist with bits of Asian accents while windows throughout the dining area let in a lot of natural light.
“Hodai” translates to “all you can” in Nihongo, and really, you can eat to your heart’s (and tummy’s) content of Japanese cuisine (with some Korean food thrown in) in this resto.
Curious on what you can enjoy at Hodai? Feast your eyes on these!
Rose Cream Pasta
Korean Fried Chicken
Cheese Cream Spicy BBQ Bowl
To get your fill of these delicious dishes, choose from two value-packed meal sets:
Silver Set (Php499). Includes Teriyaki, Japchae or Rose Cream Pasta, Tempura, Sushi Rolls, Korean Fried Chicken, Kani Salad, Kimchi Gyoza and Tonkatsu.
Gold Set (Php599). Includes everything in the Silver Set plus Cheese Cream Spicy BBQ Bowl.
Note: Unli rice and miso soup are also provided on a self-service basis. Guests are also given Korean frozen sweets as desserts after the meal.
The sheer number and variety of these sumptuous dishes may be daunting at first. However, for hungry foodies and fans of unli servings, Hodai’s meal sets present quite a good deal.
And to sweeten the deal further, Hodai has irresistible Lucky 7 promo offers this July:
- On weekdays, get 1+1 on the Gold Set. That means two people can dine on all these food for only Php599.
- On weekends, get discounted rates on the Silver set (now at Php349) and the Gold Set (now at Php419).
So, really, there’s no better time to gather up your family and friends to feast on all-you-can-eat Japanese food at Hodai!
