Susuru Japanese Cuisine at The Pop Up

While we’ve been taught that eating quietly is one of the mealtime manners we should never break, a loud sucking sound while eating is actually fine in Japan. 🇯🇵 Susuru, the Japanese word for “slurping”,  is a sign of appreciation for a meal in Japanese culture.  The slurping is an expression of how much a person is enjoying the food.

Isn’t meal time more enjoyable when you can express your fulfilment without restraint? 😋 I crave for moments when I can really enjoy the food without caring too much on finesse, when I can simply eat great food, be myself and enjoy the company of the people around me.  That’s what I did at Susuru Japanese Cuisine inside The Pop Up Katipunan. 😍

Susuru at The Pop-Up in Katipunan serves an assortment of Japanese food that’s perfect for friends and families who want to enjoy great food without spending too much.

One of the resto’s bestsellers is the slurp-worthy Tonkotsu Ramen. Susuru’s pork soup with ramen noodles is a favorite of students and millennial professionals who just want a refreshing bowl of hot soup after a long day at work or in the office.

Another must-try at Susuru is Tuna Tataki, lightly seared tuna with white onions, fried shallots and ponzu sauce. This appetizer is flavorful enough yet just light on the tummy. It’s a perfect way to start a meal.

But since we wanted to have a sulit meal that’ll let us have “a little bit of everything”, we ordered Susuru’s Bento. For only, P280 we got to enjoy a complete meal set of 2 viands with rice, vegetable tempura and california rolls. 😋

And of course, my favorite Japanese food…the Ebi Tempuraaaaa! Loved that the breading wasn’t too thick so I got to really enjoy the shrimp. 🙂

Other than the food, I love Susuru’s laidback and comfy ambiance. It’s a great place for families to practice unhurried eating. Enjoy happy conversations while slurping your favorite Japanese food.

If you’re the type who doesn’t like waiting for a table to be available, I recommend dining at Susuru during lunch time. The peak hours typically starts at 8 in the evening, so if you want less people and more intimate dining, better head to this resto before the night life begins.

But of course, Susuru is also a great spot for friends who want to enjoy the night life. 🥃🍸🍺

Cocktails start at P300. The resto also serves Japanese Sake, Japanese beer and other alcoholic beverages.

We didn’t have the chance though to enjoy some drinks as our little one was with us. 😅

Whether it’s a family time, a barkada food trip or a couple date that you’re planning, Susuru Japanese Cuisine at the Pop Up is a must try. 😋
