Delicious Maki in Joed’s Japanese Carinderia

I first thought that Joed’s Lutong Hapon literally translated to food only cooked in the afternoon. I only realized that it referred to Japanese when i got the chance to meet the owners Jo and Ed and learned that Ed used to work as a chef in Japan and decided to come back to the Philippines to try and establish themselves here.

What makes the place unique is that they actually started as a hole in the wall outlet that became popular for easy, cheap Japanese food.

This set is a collection of food shots over a period of time, particularly the maki selection : eel, mackarel, tuna, salmon, shrimp, the crispy fried variety and a curiously interesting maki made with fruits.

Generally, the maki selection is very good but I wasn’t such a big fan of mackerel as it had a strong fish smell, well, it is fish ha ha ha.

Just in case you are wondering who Cacho is, that is my nick name, or the other name for PeskyPanda 🙂 don’t ask me how i got that nick name as it involved a lion cub and a long story ha ha ha.

As usual, this blog will not tell you where to find Joed’s, use google! Clue, it is in Cebu City.

If you are wondering why we referred to the place as a Carinderia, well, technically it is a hole in the wall that resembles a pinoy carinderia but serving Japanese food that has been sort of filipinized along the way. You won’t find Japanese diners in Joed’s but it is popular with the locals.
