Soru Now Offers Unlimited Hot Pot

Soru has been synonymous with beautifully plated sushi and maki rolls. Its intricate and colorful designs are just as anticipated as its dishes. But Soru has a lot more up its sleeves when it launched its hot pot menu.

Hello, Soru.
Soru recently opened a branch in Timog and it is a lot bigger compared to its other stores. It has a lot more parking space and even has an area dedicated to its new concept--hot pot.

Its Soru Nabe Hot Pot Special is priced at PHP399 and you get a great assortment of meats, broth, noodles, mixed balls, entrees, vegetables, and side dishes. And it's unlimited!
A table gets to have an option of two broths from its selection of six soups (tonkotsu, spicy tonkotsu, sukiyaki, curry, chicken, miso, and miso). We opted to go with sukiyaki and tonkotsu.
Both broths were quite bland at first. Best to let it boil and simmer to allow the broth to get a bit thicker and have a more pronounced flavor.
Meat options are the usual--beef, pork, and chicken. If you want more bite to your hot pot, do add some balls, noodles or vegetables. I loved that there's enoki on the menu! 
To make the hot pot deal even more enticing (and filling), your PHP399 also gets you gyoza, yakisoba, beef bowl, pork bowl, smoked pork bowl, chicken wings, and takoyaki! 
You can also upgrade your meal to the PHP499 hot pot set to get shrimps, clams, mussels, squid and fish fillet in your hot pot. 
And no Soru meal is complete without its maki rolls
We had Lava Maki (PHP430), Gyu Maki (PHP290), and Tori Kasai Maki (PHP290) with our festive hot pot.
The Lava Maki was a crowd favorite. 
R and I liked Gyu Maki more as it was a bit different from the usual colorful rolls. And we can't get enough of beef!
Soru's Poke Bowl (PHP330) was also great. Topped with a generous serving of tuna and salmon, one bowl can be shared by two. I felt healthy too indulging in this dish.
Spicy Maguro Salad (PHP330) was good too. It had that mild spice that whetted my appetite for more.
Tomahawk Katsu (PHP355) is one no-fail dish parents might want to order for their kids. It's pretty much like your typical katsu, only it's made with a tomahawk.
The bowl of Tsukemen (PHP360) was perfect during our visit when it suddenly rained hard. Its thick and flavorful broth was beautifully balanced by the thick and firm noodles. The charred chashu added a lovely smokey taste too. Just be careful with the dipping broth as it tends to be too salty.
And make sure to save room for dessert!
My latest dining experience at Soru was like rediscovering this modern Japanese restaurant. I now have new favorites and will be back for its bang for the buck unlimited hot pot deal. I just hope that they improve service as it seems to be a bit on the slow side. It would be great too if there's a more convenient way to get the attention of the server from the hot pot area.
Note: The Unlimited Hot Pot is currently only available at its Timog branch.

Soru is located at Scout Torillo Corner Scout Fernandez Street, Sacred Heart, Quezon City.
