Koiji. We meet again.
Our waiter reminded me of Shaun Evaristo. HEHEHEHE. He was kinda shy though it was cute.
SOSO @ninoangel and I wanted to eat here so we did.
oh and I apologize in advance because I forgot to take a picture of the menu so I could list down what was exactly inside what we ordered we I’m just listing what I see/remember.
Shrimp tempura, cucumber, roe.
When Nino asked our waiter what the thing sticking out in the middle was, our waiter simply replied “oh it’s uh.. decoration..” and then walked away hahaha. We were debating whether it was yam or bacon. Nino, being an adventurous soul, took a nibble and found that it was just deep fried yam. woo.
It was a pretty generic roll but the green stuff on the outside with the sesame seeds added a lot to the taste. I think it was parsley.
bbq eel, shrimp tempura, avocado and roe.
Nino’s first time having eel and I heard no complaints from him so I assume he found it to be yummy. I thought it was pretty good too but nothing special from other rolls.
Philly RollSmoked salmon, cream cheese, avocado and lime
Despite my not taking a picture of the menu, I’m 110% sure of what’s inside of here. AHH SO GOOD. Undoubtedly the best of the 3. The lime just gave this dish an entire 180 degree turn. It is such a brilliant idea and a unique twist on your average philly roll. I seriously recommend this to any and everyone sweet jesus it is so good. It was Nino’s favourite of the three too.
HOWEVER, the pieces were pretty big. I had to open my mouth extra wide to fit it in. This factor doesn’t hinder the taste or the radiation of awesome but it was embarrassing to eat because I had a really difficult time chewing it all -.-
For dessert, we wanted to get the ice cream trio (three different flavours homemade ice cream) but they didn’t have any in (AGAIN) so we asked to see the menu again because I was determined to eat dessert. The two other choices were Creme Brulee and Tofu Tiramisu. We asked how big the desserts were but our waiter didn’t know so he called one of the chefs over [we were sitting right beside the sushi bar so the chef could just talk to us over the counter] and asked him. The chef was nice enough to bring a the bowl they put the creme brulee in and said that the tiramisu was more than double the size of the creme brulee so we just decided to get the tiramisu.
Tofu Tiaramisu topped with fresh fruits
Ahh the blueberry was got rolled around when our waiter put the dish down so perfect plating was ruineeddddddd.
We asked the chef what the thing with the big leaves was and he said it was a gooseberry. We just kinda laughed for a little while because at first we thought it was just plastic and then I ate it. The moment I bit into it, it just kinda exploded in my mouth. It’s got the texture of the skin of an orange. By skin I don’t mean the rind but the thin outer layer you get when you cut the orange and leave it out a bit and some kind of see-through layer starts to form. I hope you know what I mean because I really have no other way of explaining it >.<
It was kinda super sour with a hint of sweet. Not really something I would eat like a grape but it was definitely an interesting experience.
The tiramisu itself wasn’t bad though. I’m not too fond of the tofu in there but I won’t complain. The cake layer was kinda soggy and I didn’t enjoy eating that too much. I wouldn’t order this dish next time but I have no regrets trying it.
This place has CERTAINLY improved since last time I went and I’ll be sure to come back another time.
