Weekend Food Tripping at: Bistro Miyake RestoBar

My weekend food tripping post should be named "Last Weekend Food Tripping".  If you remember clearly, I had my OrganicRituals Spa Manicure and Pedicure experience last week and I finished the service around 9:00pm already and we haven't had dinner yet!  I can literally see people walking around looking like a "fried chicken" (finger lickin' good?) *hahaha*  We've decided not to drive but walk by Bistro Miyake which is approximately 5 minutes walk away from the Nail Spa location. 

The huge "Happy Hour Promo" banner nearly put a stop on our tracks as I don't want to go in a bar that has a lot of drunken master and probably filling the place with smoke.  Not my thing!  But I'm glad the restaurant outside has ample lighting and I can see how gorgeous and modern the restobar looks!

Wonderful ambiance, modern designed interiors that does not look like a typical Japanese Restaurant at all.  Except when you look closely at the "Japanese" decorations and plants!  The Sushi Bar is a big "giveaway" on what type of restaurant this is!

See the gorgeous lamp?  I have a crush on it and I am tempted to take it back home!  *laughs*.  Seriously, this place looks posh!  Expensive-looking!!!!

Well I am glad the saying "Do not judge the book by its cover" is applicable in this restaurant.  The prices on menu isn't expensive at all!  I find that it's regularly priced like most inexpensive Japanese restaurants we know.

Here's a quick snap on their menu, you can click photo to enlarge to get the feel of their price range.

Aside from coffee, I am a tea drinker.  I make sure to try their house tea and it doesn't take anything different like most house tea.  It's actually regular green tea.  Tastes a bit bland.

The house salad free for all I guess.  Nothing spectacular again.  Shredded vegetables with mayonnaise.

We tried their Surf and Turf Meal
Tonkatsu in Combination C
Includes: Miso Soup, House Salad, 

Salmon Steak and Pork Tonkatsu
all for Php275.00 (approx $6.00)

Their Salon Steak is quite nice, the Pork Tonkatsu tastes good but a bit too dry for my taste as the sauce that goes with this is more on the thick texture (imagine oyster sauce texture).  My favorite is their Miso Soup.  I can go for 2nd serving!  Only if I can!

Celebration Noodles
Php185.00 (approx $4.00)
This dish is definitely new to my tastebuds.  Imagine a noodle dish that's sweet.  It's a bit sticky because it was cooked together with pork fat.  Comes with Chorizo, Eggs, Pork and mushrooms.  Not bad but good for sharing as I cannot finish this all.

Dessert time!
Blueberry Cheesecake
Php120.00/slice (approx $3.00)

Can I just say OMG???  This finished up the whole meal perfectly!  I love the texture of this and it doesn't feel overwhelming to my tastebud at all.  The blueberries well complemented the cheesecake! I am seriously longing and thinking about this up to this very moment!!!  Note to self:  Will order this in whole (Php1,200/Approx $27.00) when I visit the area fo' sure!  I don't care if I stuff my fat face with this!

    Liz, well your angkong is right, its not really AMAZINGLY UNIQUE as it does taste like regular Japanese Restaurants we have down here, but if you're within the area, its alright, but for us to drive all the way to this resto? Hmm..NO
