    After casting about for something new in the Dumaguete dining scene I recently discovered Yakiniku Hakusan Japanese Beef BBQ. I've driven by it dozens of times without noticing it as it's on the second floor of a building fronting the south side of Quezon Park, very near the old stone watchtower. Owner is from Osaka and serves excellent yakiniku, along with decent sushi and possibly the best ramen I've found. Prices are reasonable and service is good but the food is the reason to go. Wish I had found it earlier.

    If I'd be anywhere better than pathetic at using chopsticks I might give it a try :smile:

    Why - with your Japanese connections?: "The name Chie can be written multiple ways depending on the kanji used. It can also be written using hiragana or katakana."

    Just to clarify Mr Dutchie - WHICH part of me are you holding the candle to? Please inform me asap as I may have already done that one but am eager to try new experiences. :smile:

    Why do you think you have to use chopsticks to eat Japanese food. I lived in Japan for 17 years, yes I was adept at the sticks, but they also use the fork and spoon. Besides the sticks really aren't that hard to master.

    Their Raman was mediocre at best IMO. Very subjective I suppose but I have found much better ramen in Dumaguete.
