I absolutely love Japanese food. I cannot count how many times I mentioned that in my blog but… who cares? I love Japanese food. It never fails to make me smile (especially with a plate of salmon sashimi on the table). And those random Japanese dinner dates are loooooove~~~ <3
It has been a long time since I last visited Omakase. I still remember the maki platter and the super friendly prices. I think I went crazy over the platters.
This time, R ordered Spicy Tuna Salad (PHP250), Soft Shell Crab Tempura (PHP550) and Dynamite Roll (PHP250) while I got Salmon Sashimi (PHP240) and Zaru Soba (PHP195). I wanted to order one more dish but R said that I always waste food. TT_TT
After a short wait, the spicy tuna salad arrived.
It wasn’t really that spicy. I loved the salad dressing on the cubes of tuna and the crunch of the tempura crumbs.
The salmon sashimi was pretty okay too. Not the best as it was not the type that melts in your mouth (or so how my former officemate calls it—party in the mouth) but it was still delightful.
Soon, the soft shell crab tempura arrived and R noticed that the serving size seemed to be smaller than before. (Or that the serving size is still the same but is now more expensive.) It’s best to ask for an additional sauce when you order this.
The Zaru Soba was served next and I was surprised that it wasn’t as cold as I expected it to be. Usually, other restaurants serve the noodles on top of ice. This one wasn’t. The dipping sauce wasn’t cold as well. Nonetheless, I was too hungry to complain. It was still good though but it would have been better if the noodles were colder.
I was already full when the dynamite roll arrived. The rolls were huge and I could only manage to eat two rolls that night before my tummy explodes. R was a growing boy though and ate the rest.
Overall, it was one happy dinner!
