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!
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.
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!
