The Japanese fried rice and the gyoza were good. 128515 But the tempura and pork katsudon were pretty tough and tasteless

8Cuts Burgers

2.0 Stars
Burger

I didn't really enjoy my experience at 8 cuts despite the fact that I totally love Burger Bar. I ordered the streak cut patty on the Messy Benny which was supposed to be a quarter pound steak cut patty with poached egg, ham, hollandaise sauce and caramelized onions. I particularly ordered this one among others since I love Eggs Ben and this one's not on the Burger Bar menu. When I got my order, and sliced right through the egg, raw egg white oozed out instead of that perfectly cooked egg yolk. I had my food replaced (with the same order), and sad to say the egg on the second serving was overlooked this time, nothing oozed out. It seemed more like a hard boiled egg rather than a poached egg. Finally, the onions were not even caramelized and the patty was sort of dry.

Hopefully, it's just what I ordered. I'm pretty willing to give it another try.

Old Swiss Inn

5.0 Stars
International

I'm a big fan of the chocolate fondue of this restaurant and I have yet to try a lot more from their menu. Last Thursday though, my parents decided to have a family fondue night so all four of us headed to Old Swiss Inn for dinner. We only ordered Fondue, 4 types of them. Allow me to enumerate:

1. Cheese Fondue - Gruyere, Emmenthal & Kirsch in one hot fondue pot. Served with bread, of course!

2. Beef Fondue - Beef tenderloin cubes served with around 12 dips.

3. Seafood Fondue - Fesh tuna, salmon, shrimp and squid served with broth.

4. Chocolate Fondue - A choice of milk, white or dark melted Toblerone served with bread, homemade marshmallows and fruits.

Our family definitely enjoyed our experience, we were all so full! Old Swiss Inn is open 24 hours a day, which makes it more amazing. Definitely heading back!

Izakaya Nihonbashitei

5.0 Stars
Japanese

I don't know anyone who doesn't love Nihonbashitei. 5 stars for their Sashimi, Ankake Ramen, Kakiage Tempura and believe it or not, their Iced Coffee. Can't ever have enough of Japanese food 128077128076

Ba Noi's

5.0 Stars
Vietnamese

Ba Noi's is my favorite Vietnamese restaurant here in Manila. I love how this place gives off a secret whole in the wall vibe and is not overrated at all. Aside from its very accessible location, the food of course is very authentic. I would recommend their friend spring rolls and this dish called "Bo Luc Lac" which beef served with fried basil! Definitely their bestsellers. Although I haven't tried it, I heard that their pomelo salad is also a must try!

Kenji Tei Ramen House

5.0 Stars
Ramen or Noodle

Kenji Tei is my favorite Japanese go to place. Every time I have to make a choice of where to eat in the Greenbelt area, this restaurant always gets short listed.

The three dishes that I never get sick of are Gomoku Shio Ramen (Vegetable Ramen), Crunchy Kani Maki and Crunchy Chicken Teriyaki. Although the food choices are rather common in most Japanese restaurants, the taste of these food choices seems unique when eaten in Kenji Tei.

Always a good visit 128077

Hokkaido Ramen Santouka

4.0 Stars
Ramen or Noodle

One of the best ramen franchises from Hokkaido, Japan is now here in Manila!! When I found out that Ramen Santouka was already here, I was pretty stoked to try it out!

There's no doubt that ramen is always a good eat! I was thrilled to see that they had "ramen set meals" on their menu which was composed of the ramen of your choice, 1 rice meal, 3 small side dishes and hot tea priced at around 450 pesos (depending on which rice meal you get). My friend and and I decided to order 1 ramen set meal for both of us to share. We had their Shio (salt) ramen which they highly recommended and the 5 piece gyoza rice meal. We upgraded the ramen to large (instead of the usual small serving) for an additional 100 pesos. The set meal was good for sharing and was pretty much enough for the both of us. For dessert, we couldn't resist ordering mochi. We had for ourselves the blueberry and apple pie ones and both were divine! The food was definitely appetizing and flavorful!

I guess what sort of disappointed me was that the service wasn't as good as I expected it to be. They did not have a waiting list for their customers, instead to get a seat when the restaurant is full, you must literally wait/fall in line. This is actually a hassle considering that the place is very small. Another thing was that not all the waitresses were equipped to answer questions regarding the different kinds of ramen and mochi flavors (although one of the owners/managers did a good job in helping us choose the perfect mochi). Because they just opened, I'm sure they have a lot of room and time to improve! 127836128512127860

Overall, it was still an excellent ramen experience!

Milky & Sunny

4.0 Stars
Breakfast

Milky and Sunny is a hole in the wall all day breakfast restaurant in Kapitolyo. Because I am a sucker for breakfast food, I enjoyed my visit. The restaurant serves different kinds of breakfast food from pancakes, waffles, rice & egg meals, cereals, etc.

My friend and I ordered their must try longganisa meal, spam & bacon pasta, eggs benedict and blueberry milkshake. The food was cooked well and was very tasty. Definitely coming back to try the other things on their menu.
