For its fine food and service, Japengo was presented with a 2009 Business Achievement and Recognition Award, for Japanese Restaurant of the Year. At its location in Parkmall, where it was launched, diners can enjoy its modernist Japanese cuisine exemplified in starters and appetizers like gyoza, agedashi tofu, California maki, and maguro sushi. Among the restaurant’s à la carte delights are ebi tempura and salmon sashimi.
Use your chopsticks to grab morsels like gyuniku, chicken yakitori, or kanton ramen. The restaurant also makes bento box lunches that can include tuna teriyaki, ebi tempura (with moyashi itame), miso soup, and authentic Japanese rice. Not too long after it opened, the Parkmall restaurant started to offer tabletop grilling with a choice of beef, pork ribs, or shrimp.
