A meeting ground for both strangers and friends, Ikomai at Salcedo Village in Makati is a place where one could meet and interact with people from all walks of life and share their experiences with them. Aside from serving Japanese food, it takes pride in being a home and a haven to those who are into food, arts, and travel, allowing each one to connect and exchange their ideas and stories with a stranger or a friend.
The diversity and the culture of the guests who dine here create the restaurant’s unique style and ambiance which then makes it a place where people visit and come back to every now and then.
Ikomai started out in joining weekend markets, and this was where they got to meet different kinds of people which inspired them to establish something where they could commune and gather for a good conversation.
The place specializes in serving a wide variety of Japanese dishes – from gourmet street food and comfort food like donburi, kushikatsu, and kushiage to desserts – perfect to munch on while listening to some good ol’ jazz and soulful music.
