Kai, Greenbelt 5

How fast time flies, it's already December!

This festive season usually brings forth a lot of parties and reunions, just recently I had the chance to meet up with my good friend Gen, a former colleague of mine from an American company we both used to work for.  It must have been almost a year since we last saw each other, a lot has happened in between and finally we now have time to catch up.  

We were supposed to have lunch at Lusso in Greenbelt 5, but that day, the indoor dining area was reserved for a big group lunch (I guess reunions, too).  So I called Gen and I asked her if we can have lunch instead at Kai which is just a few cartwheels away.  Good thing she said yes.  Kai is one of my favorite restaurants in Greenbelt 5 that serves contemporary Japanese cuisine, it is perfect for a small group reunion or even for just two people.  Their tables are spaced out far in between so you can have conversations without worrying that the other table already knows your life story.  





What I also like about Kai is that at lunch (from 11:00 am – 2:00pm), they have a special set where you can choose from 5 entrees.  Each entree order comes with miso soup, mixed greens salad, tempura and Japanese steamed rice.  Gen and I ordered the grilled sea bass and the pork miso yaki with a glass of fresh dalandan juice.


 






For a good lunch hour we talked up a storm, caught up like crazy, shared our life stories and noticed how we have taken similar paths in our lives.  Now, we find ourselves working for the same company (again)!  I think we’ve said goodbye so many times, but before we parted ways we finally had our photo taken at the outdoor dining area of Kai.

I hope this Christmas season also brings you closer to family and friends.  For mini reunions like ours, check out Kai at the Ground Floor of Greenbelt 5, Makati City.  For inquiries and reservations call 757-5209.
