Ahead of the opening of Iai by chef Bruce Ricketts, the creative culinary mind behind Sensei and Mecha Uma, comes a fast-casual kaisendon pop-up concept that combines elements from his two restaurants—think: Mecha Uma’s serious demeanor meets Sensei’s casual, comforting aura in a quick, ready-to-go format.

Go by Sensei’s compact menu is composed of a selection of raw seafood rice bowls including the Akamizuke (shoyu-marinated maguro or yellowfin tuna), Salmon Oyako (salmon and ikura), and premium offerings such as the Smoked Toro kaisendon (a bigger version of Mecha Uma’s signature smoked toro nigiri). “Each kaisendon comes as a set with miso soup, nori and pickles, and customers can eat it like a straightforward chirashi bowl or make their own temaki if they like,” says Ricketts. 

The pop-up runs now, until May 31, 2024 at Stall 17 in The Grid Food Market, located on the 2nd floor of the Power Plant Mall in Makati.
