For a seriously underrated Japanese meal, take your business partner to Ryu's Japanese Restaurant and Sake Bar. This homely Japanese dining establishment on the first floor of Capitol Piazza is where you can get affordable three-course lunch sets. Prices start from $15 for the Tempura Udon Set, and goes upwards to $45 for the Okamochi Box Set, a hands-on dish that allows you to make your own sushi roll. Of all the sets, Burpple Tastemaker Justin Teo, who has visited Ryu's on multiple occasions, recommends the Stewed Iberico Pork Set ($25) that comes served with a side of daikon and black miso paste. He notes that dishes here are not overly seasoned so "it won't be mindblowingly shiok" but "it's all natural without superfluous seasoning". Be sure to keep a look out for the Nagasaki castella cake, a popular sponge cake dessert in Japan. It's made in-house and is said to be approved by chef Yamashita of Flor Patisserie!
Avg Price: $30 per person
