Hello again, Izakaya Sensu.
Izakaya Sensu opened its doors last year and spoiled us with its scrumptious and value for money Japanese rolls, yakitori, bento meals and more. Now on its first year, it continues to delight its patrons with its new menu.
I was lucky to be one of the first foodies to taste some of Izakaya Sensu's new dishes. I sampled Rainbow Roll (PHP450), Aburi Uni and Ika Roll (PHP450), Wagyu Sukiyaki (PHP1,499), and Anmitsu (PHP295). I also ordered Izakaya Sensu Iced Tea (PHP195).
First served was this beautiful plate of Rainbow Roll. The alternating colors of blue fin tuna, salmon, white meat fish, horse mackerel and squid made this dish so captivating.
It was so stunning that I had to pause and stare at it for a few minutes to admire its beauty.
The Aburi Uni and Ika Roll was great too. As a huge fan of sea urchin, I really liked how they turned this gooey and delectable seafood into a marvelous maki.
The stuffed ika added texture to the dish making it extra addicting.
Torched to perfection, this dish is best eaten warm.
The star of my visit was the Wagyu Sukiyaki. One order of this is good for three to four but I wouldn't mind finishing an order by myself.
I like how Izakaya Sensu let us have a feel of prepping our sukiyaki on our own.
They serve the scrumptious dish uncooked and placed on a pot without the broth. The staff then prepare the sukiyaki in front of you and all you have to do is be patient for a few minutes and try not to eat the fragrant dish raw.
After ten minutes or so, my piping hot pot of wagyu sukiyaki was ready.
It was love at first sip. The broth was the sweet yet salty kind that I love.
The wagyu dipped in raw egg was great too. It was tender and undeniably fresh. I also liked that there was generous serving of mushrooms and greens.
They also serve udon noodles in case you have extra broth.
My glass of Izakaya Sensu Iced Tea looked like multiple layers of flavor.
The dominant taste of matcha tickled my taste buds and went well with all the food I indulged in.
My dessert was equally spectacular! The matcha ice cream topped with seasonal fruits, red bean paste and mochi was divine! I also enjoyed drizzling it with dark caramel for that lovely sweet taste. I can't wait to indulge in more of this amazing dessert.
Overall, it was a great meal. I can't wait for these dishes to be available. I'd definitely swing by for more wagyu sukiyaki and anmitsu.
