Japanese Hotpot in Makati : Ganso Shabuway, A Great Japanese Food Experience (Zomato Foodie Meet-Up)

I am a Japanese food fan - all the way! From maki, sushi to tempura, I devour it like a hungry mountaineer who just went down from a hike! 

Lately, I have been craving for a new foodie adventure and luckily, I was invited to a foodie meet-up by ZOMATO, a food lover's haven at GANSO SHABUWAY

Located at the Lower Ground Level of Rockwell Power Plant Mall in Makati - Ganso Shabuway boasts of a Japanese gastronomic treat like no other. Here's how I'd describe my experience.


Their red and black minimalist design that is common in almost all Japanese restos radiate a casual yet  semi-formal vibe. The dim lighting effect added a more intimate feel conducive to a great dining experience. You won't feel like you are inside a bustling mall. 


We were warmly welcomed and accomodated by Ms. Anne and her team of cheerful servers. Any of our requests were met with a smile and speed of service just right for impatient customers like me. 

Zomato Foodies, Zomans with Ms. Anne the Manager 😄


For entrees, we were served with Agedashi Tofu, sweet and salty, soft to the mouth.

Seafood Deluxe - which you have to dip into the hotpot. 

Mixed Beef - USDA choice Angus Beef and Wagyu Beef - heavenly!

a staple Japanese food. not my favorite on the menu though. Lols! 

For dessert, they served us with Matcha Azuki Milk Kakigori -which is an ice scrambled with beans. Good if you're a fan of beans. 😄


I give GANSO SHABUWAY 4.5 stars out of 5! For cleanliness, amazing and prompt service and good food! 

So, what are you waiting for? Check out GANSO SHABUWAY located at the Lower Level of Rockwell Power Plant Mall. Follow them on Instagram: @gansoshabuway and like their Facebook Page: GANSO SHABUWAY too!

By some surprising twist of fate, I am now a mom...a single one at that! I'd like to think that God has granted my most fervent wish - to become a superhero! At least in the eyes of my one year old boy - Alejandro. I'm a public servant experiencing fulfillment from doing the best I can to change the world in my own little way. A newbie blogger mom/digital mom and so far, I'm having difficulty switching from being the single, career woman I'm used to in the past and the new role I'm dealt with today. I'm an online entrepreneur too - I don't know where I'm going but then again, I already know where I'm from. And I don't ever wanna go back, Join me, in my missteps and misadventures and tell me what you think about my take on LIFE, LOVE and EVERYTHING ELSE IN BETWEEN. Welcome to Mama Whale's world!


  1. Arrgh, got hungry just by looking at the pictures! Last time I ate at a Japanase resto was way back 2010 pa. haha! My husband isn't a fan kasi, kaya di ko sya maisama :S One of my fave Japanese resto is located in Makati, its name is Suzu kin. :) Its a small resto, actually the facade looks like a house pa nga, but their food is soooo delicious!

    1. Wow! I need directions! Haha...will try it there too! :-) thanks for the tip! :-)
