I wouldn't hesitate giving this place a 511088

Why not! It is tucked in Tagaytay and has this al fresco area with a very stunning and refreshing view that alone is worth the drive.
But of course I wouldn't leave you at that with your stomach grumbling with hunger. Forgive my photos doesn't give justice to the food because I came a bit late to this event.

'Nyway, food was really awesome and authentic.
Let's start with the Dragon Maki with the big prawn head, which made me love maki as I was not a fan of this japanese staple but this one exclusive, converted me. Love the cruch between bites, just that all the flavors are in harmony with each other.
Then their tempura, who doesn't want tempura? You are missing half of your life mygosh! While this tempura was light and crisp and the whole big shrimp meat was present which was a plus.
Let's go to the mains, the Sukiyaki is my favorite and you've gotta try it! Bold and balanced mix of sweetness and flavor will hit you on the spot! By the way, I appreciate the instance that they have me reheated the sukiyaki because they said its more yummier and thank you because yes it is! Piping hot more like it!
Another favorite is the Bulalo Ramen, yes you heard it right bulalo + ramen is the perfect way to go in this cold city. The flavor is intact and the beef bulalo is tender and haaaaaay, I'm drooling na! It is also good for 2. Basta you need to taste the Sukiyaki and the Bulalo Ramen and tell me.
Closing this lunch event with a crispy and sweet combi of Fried Ice Cream, the butter that they used was like those of tempuara's and it is cool, i just had just one spoon and boooom nothing had left on the plate. I think when I come back I need to try this again cause I couldn't remember the taste as the things had been so fast. Kaloka!128576

So whenever you're in Tagaytay check out this plce you won't be disappointed.128521 place palang panalo na.128074🏼⛰

Budget is 500per pax.

You could check my blog for menu and prices and the view.128076🏼

This place was recommended to me by my close friend, cos she knows how much i love Japanese food! + I go to Tagaytay often so... Lamna.

Anyway, she gave me a list of everything that they ordered and highlighted the good ones para i know what to get. Which is successful naman cos we ordered 3 that was on the list! And since, dalawa lang kami ng kasama ko.... Ito lang talaga ang kaya naming i-consume 128557128514

Loved everything that we ordered especially the dragon maki.... Oh my god, that sushi is the beeeeest. Pretty sure i'll dine here again when i go back to Tagaytay cos oh my i fell inlove with this place. Their service is on point too, so i have no complaints!!! + points also cos the place looks lit at night!! Hehe

The Aozora ramen is a must try for bulalo lovers. Loved the broth and the beef was tender. The wagyu steak was also good but not the best Ive tried. Salmon sashimi was a little pricey given the small portion but it was fresh. Aozora salad is an amazing starter for kani lovers. The dragon maki definitely gets plus points for presentation aside from taste.

Service was also good with the staff being very acommodating and friendly. The ambience is also very quaint japanese. It's a good date place.

This will probably be my go to place in Tagaytay for Japanese. Definitely worth a try and they have a few dishes here you may not be able to find elsewhere.

Along with my quest for many firsts with my girlfriend. She stumbled upon this place while planning our Tagaytay trip. This was a first Japanese restaurant for me in Tagaytay. It had our curiousity with Ramen Bulalo, it was a great hook, it's a first as well. I suggest ordering the dragon maki.

View of Taal is mesmerizing from atop Domicillo Hotel where Aozora is located. Aozora meaning blue sky is a Japanese resto by a Japanese Chef ably manned by his Filipino chef too when not around.

My favorite ebi tempura was nicely done enjoyed it much. The wagyu beef yakiniku was tender almost a melt in your mouth experience. Try the dragon maki too!

I read about this place on Our Awesome Planet! 10084️ Anton Diaz really gave us a reason to visit this place! So glad that CashCashPinoy also is selling discount vouchers for this place so it was such a treat to the tummy and even the pocket! 128077🏼

Our experience here was just absolute bliss so please let me be as I talk about every food item we ate there, mala-nobela pa yan or not. I can't stress how much everything served was super duper mega kaduper sarap as in! 128525

First, we were given complimentary Seaweed Salads and they were absolutely delicious! 128525 They were tossed in a Sesame-Oil-based dressing which went very well with the seaweeds. It was crafted smartly. 128516

Next was the Aozora Salad. It was amazing too! Very well balanced and fresh, it also had Sesame Dressing with a Japanese Mayo base. I think it's safe to say I'm a fan of Sesame Oil and / or dressing. 128525

We then had the Salmon Aburi Sushi which was super light but also very delightful. The salmon was torched which gave it a depth in flavor that went well with the fish. 128077🏼

Then came more makis. 128525 The Dragon Maki was not only pretty, it was also delicious! Wouldv'e wanted it to have Unagi, but I'm not complaining either. The Spicy Tuna Maki was super gooood too! It had just the right amount of spice and roe that brought out the wonderful flavor of the raw tuna. 128516

What made this restaurant stand out here in Tagaytay is the fact that they serve "Bulalo Ramen". 128525 I must say, it was absolutely delicious too! It's their take on the beloved soup dish famous in the city, but cooked Aozora style in the form of ramen! The pieces of beef was super tender, the beef broth had the right seasoning that the ramen-y taste was still there. It was just great! 10084

For desserts, the fried Mochi with Red Beans was super unique. I've always liked those awesome rice cakes but to have it fried was super awesome. 128522 The Mango Tempura was also amazeballs! They surely know how to make Tempura Batter! It was super light and thin but crispy and had the sliced fruit fully covered. Ang galing! And the pieces of mango were just so ripe and sweet and nice with the vanilla ice cream topping. 128525

We had our meal inside the resto but had our desserts outside, while also enjoying the view of Taal. Like I said, we went to a lot of spots in Tagaytay on this trip and for most of it, if not all, we had the view of the lake and volcano as a plus! 128525

I can't wait to come back to Aozora!!! 127775127775127775127775127775

Craving for some mango and tempura? Well, head on over at this resto to try some! 128523 Paired with their Key Sumiyaki Coffee, one can surely relax and enjoy the view at the first authentic Japanese restaurant in Tagaytay. Dined here while they were still on soft opening and I must say, their dish line-up looks promising. There were a couple of hits and misses but this is sure well on its way to becoming a good Japanese restaurant. 128513🇯🇵128513
