Weekend Food Tripping at: Sushi-Ya

Happy weekend food tripping everyone!  I am seriously busy with a lot of stuffs but I certainly do not forget to STOP, REST and EAT.  Dining and spending quality time with my husband is priceless, whatever anxiety or concerns I may be feeling can be temporarily put on hold.

This weekend's food tripping is all about affordable Japanese Restaurant.  There's always Teriyaki Boy, SumosamKarate Kid , Jipan & Sakura and Ajisen Ramen.  Those are a few of those affordable Japanese Restaurant I've tried. And the list will go on and on....

Sushi-Ya Restaurant has been around and visible for quite some time but I didn't take time to really stop and look at their menu!  I don't know why but I've always thought this restaurant is pricey!  As you all know, I'm a bit allergic to overly expensive stuffs!  Over the weekend, we were craving for something that warms the tummy, something filling as I have been stressing out on a lot of stuffs and I seriously needed a full meal! :)

Miso Soup
Comes Free with the Bento Box


Php140.00 (approx $ 3.00)

I love it that the sauce is all over the rice from top to bottom!
Pork is soft and obviously well cooked!


Bento Box no. 1
Tori (Chicken), California Maki, Tofu and Rice
with Miso Soup above
Php250.00 (approx $5.43)


If you are expecting to drink the warm house tea!  Well you won't have it here!  You will be served with their cold version of a house tea.  I missed the warm tea right after a meal but it's still okay.

Oh yeah, forgot to take a photo but Bottomless Iced Tea here costs Php50.00!!! (Approx $1.00)!  Another cheap bottomless iced tea find!

How's your weekend food tripping?
Keep smilin'
Stay happy!
