If you are in Cebu City and you are craving for Japanese dishes which are very affordable like half the regular price compared to any popular Japanese restaurants out there, Joed's Lutong Hapon is the place to be. This is the only Japanese Carenderia in Cebu City that offers a wide array of Japanese dishes. Name it and they will cook it for you. What is good about this establishment is that the owners (Joan and Edgar Malapitan) will personally attend to your orders and Edgar who was once a chef in Japan, aside from being so accommodating, will do the preparation and cooking for you.

Their first and original location was at their residential address in Mabolo but they moved to a bigger and better location at the G/F of Enmore Residence Hall beside Sacred Heart Girls' High at the back of Cebu Doctors' Hospital, Don Jose Avila Street. They also have a smaller branch at Panagdait right across Sarrosa International Hotel and Residential Suites.

I've been longing to visit this talk-of-the-town carenderia because of their affordable and delicious dishes until one of my friends invited me for lunch and without any hesitations, I accepted his invite knowing that it will be my first time to eat there. Joed's Lutong Hapon became so popular because of the word of mouth only.
When we arrived at the location, we did not waste any time but asked for their menu for we were so excited and hungry at the same time and here's what they gave us...
It took us how many minutes to pick what we want to eat because we were so overwhelmed with the prices for it was so affordable and knowing that they are mouth-watering and delicious Japanese dishes. At long last, we finally decided what to order...
|Beef Teriyaki Php95.00|
|California Maki Php65.00 - my favorite!|
|Crab Tempura Php50.00|
