First Bite: Wasabi Warriors

Wasabi Warriors caught my interest when it first opened on the ground floor of the posh The Gramercy Residences. This Japanese sushi place exuded a cool vibe as I’ve seen the local “it” people raving about Wasabi Warriors’ rolls. And when it opened a branch in Serendra, I went to look at its menu and was surprised that its rolls are quite affordable. For a sushi place that started in a classy building, I had the impression that it would be pricey. I’m not complaining though as more affordable prices mean more food! 

Hello, Wasabi Warriors!
This small well-lit Japanese joint was the first stop of our sponsored Good Food Tour and I literally ran towards this place right after work. Luckily, they were still serving miso soup when I got there. 
We were treated to a platter of assorted makis including Fresh Salmon and Avocado (PHP150/roll), Inside Out Rolls (PHP150), and Panko Prawn (PHP150) as well as Seared Salmon Nigiri (PHP400, 6 pcs. | PHP250, 3 pcs. | PHP100, 1 pc.) and a handful of bento meals. I got to try Set D (PHP500) which includes beef teriyaki, two seared salmon nigiri, seaweed salad and miso soup. You could also replace beef teriyaki with chicken for the same price or ebi fry for an additional PHP50.
I sampled one of the Panko Prawn rolls topped with avocado slices and it was pretty good. I liked the contrast of textures and flavors. 
I wanted to get the one with salmon on top as I love salmon. Sadly, someone not from our table asked for a piece of roll and took that one! *heartbroken* 
At least I got to enjoy the seared salmon nigiri which was awesome! It was beautifully torched and it was packed with flavor! I loved the slight sweet taste of it. On the downside, it was quite steep at PHP100 per piece. You need to splurge PHP400 to get a better deal as you could get seared salmon elsewhere at PHP80-85. 
Wasabi Warrior’s bento meals are also a bit on the expensive side but it offers quality dishes. 
I loved the sweet and tender beef teriyaki and had a hard time controlling myself from getting more than I should as I was sharing it with other foodies. I also liked that one order comes with two scrumptious salmon nigiri. I just hope that they would add a few rolls too for more variety and to make the bento more value for money. 
Overall, it was a good first stop for our Good Food Tour. We just struggled with moving around as the dining area was really small. If you hate squirming around just to get from one place to another, then it might be best for you to just order take out. Just visit Food Panda PH and click your way through Warrior Wasabi’s menu. 

Wasabi Warriors is located at Ground Floor, Serendra, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City.
