The story of Wafu began in 2012. Established by Bryan Tiu, the visionary behind brands such as Teriyaki Boy, Peri-Peri Charcoal Chicken, and Ichiba: Japanese Market. Bryan Tiu prides himself in being an International Trend Spotter and Local Trend Setter. Through his vision, Wafu was created in a two storey building in the heart of Greenhills, Wafu sought to redefine the Japanese dining experience by combining deliciously authentic Japanese cuisine with posh and stylish interiors.
As guests step through the doors of Wafu, they are given a choice: The main dining area in the ground floor which features a high ceiling and sophisticated interiors, which include the iconic 3 lotus pod dining tables by famed designer, Amy Pamintuan; or the more casual, teppanyaki area at the second floor, where skilled chefs prepare the food right before their eyes.
This year, Wafu celebrates it’s 4th Anniversary and a new Chapter in it’s story. This new chapter unveils a new and improved Wafu, featuring a new executive chef, a new menu, better ingredients airflown straight from Japan, and a slew of upcoming activities.
In line with its 4th Anniversary, Wafu introduces its new Executive Chef, Onishi Nobuyoshi, or Chef Nobu. Chef Nobu hails from Osaka and moved to Tokyo to pursue his dream of becoming a Master Sushi Chef. He achieved more than 30 years of experience working in prestigious sushi restaurants in the Ginza Tokyo area. Prior to coming to Wafu to head the kitchen team, Chef Nobu was a Master Sushi Chef of the highly prestigious Midori Sushi. Now, Chef Nobu, lends his years of experience to ensure that every dish served in Wafu follow the highest standards of quality and authenticity.
New, Authentic and Affordable Menu
With a new executive chef comes a new Wafu menu. Featuring improved Wafu favorites as well as all new items, the new Wafu menu gives you an authentic taste of Japanese cuisine. And better still, the new Wafu menu phases out the old Wafu Elite Card, and the discount normally associated with the card has been applied directly to the menu, making great Japanese food now more affordable.
The dishes themselves have their own story, and their story begins at the source. The secret to great Japanese cuisine is the ingredients. The fresher and better the quality, the better the experience. That’s why at Wafu, we air fly our ingredients straight from Japan. The choicest ingredients and the freshest catch of the day, are picked and air flown straight to Chef Nobu and his team in Wafu. Through their skilled hands, these choice ingredients are then artfully crafted into an authentic experience that celebrates Japanese culture with every bite.
Milestones more Special
All together, Wafu offers the perfect venue for celebrating milestones, hosting of an important business meeting, or even everyday meals during the work week. Under the helm of a new chef, a wide selection of authentic Japanese cuisine made more affordable, and ingredients flown in fresh from Japan, Wafu makes these moments extra special. Guests even have a choice celebrate in the restaurant surrounded by the luxe ambiance, or by having cater their celebration in a venue of their choosing.
