Weekend Food Trip at: OEDO Japanese Restaurant

I live in downtown Manila so you'll definitely find me and my family in areas such as Banawe, Retiro and Ongpin.

One of the things I love to do before we head out is to search online for Restaurants to try!  Mr. AMW and I love to food trip on various restaurants because we are Foodies-at-heart!  One restaurant that we've always been wanting to try is Oedo Japanese Restaurant located at Banawe.  The thing is, the place is always packed and we cannot even book for reservations.

Because of that, my interest with the restaurant grew more!  So finally, one FATEFUL Sunday + Good Mood Toddler, we waited in line (30minutes to be exact) and we finally got a seat!  If you want a quick and honest review?  The WAIT is Totally Worth It!

Octopus Balls
The taste is almost there (comparing to the ones I had in Japan) but, there are more cabbage inside than octopus bits!  Still, the sauce and flavors are really like that from the ones I had in Japan!

Aspara Bacon
Bacon-wrapped asparagus tastes really good! 
 The asparagus are fresh and the bacon has a bit of the crunchy texture.

Enoki Bacon

Php60.00 per stick
Bacon wrapped Enoki Mushrooms.
Who loves Enoki mushrooms?  I love them so much I recently cooked it with ground pork on my IG stories!  This is a great alternative if you're not a fan of asparagus.

Shouniku (Chicken Breast Part)
Buta Bara (Pork Belly)
Php45.00-Php48.00 each
If I will order these sticks again, I'll go for Buta Bara as the Shouniku doesn't have much of the flavors!  It tastes literally like tender chicken breasts with salt and pepper.  I wish they added more flavors to it.

 Chasyu Men

Braised pork belly in shoyu based soup.  

This is extremely flavorful and I love how the noodles are cooked perfectly!  It's not too soft or hard, it's just perfect for a woman craving ramen --- me!

Katsu Don
Pork cutlet rice bowl drizzled with flavorful sauce down to the bowl!  Definitely in love with this simple dish!

Tori Kara Age
Japanese Fried Chicken.  Nothing special, it's just plain fried chicken you get in most Japanese restaurant.  You only need to use the dip that comes with this dish to make it more flavorful!  I always order this as a back-up food for my toddler.

Gyu Teppanyaki
One of the best Beef Teppanyaki I've tried to date and making this restaurant a Must-Visit!  Will definitely order this again as the beef is one of the "most tender" and almost "melts-in-your-mouth" texture I've tried.  It's almost like that of a Wagyu Beef and the price is just right!

Overall, the place maybe jampacked but you don't feel like you're crowded.  All the servers are very friendly and helpful and the food was served just in time.  I will definitely go back and try other dishes soon!
