Genki Sushi is probably my favorite restaurant in BGC Stopover. Whenever Cindy S and I can't decide where to eat, I'll just say "Ano, Genki?" And the answer will always be yes. 128538 Free and unlimited matcha tea is her favorite. As for me, it would be their Salmon Oyako Don.

We were really starving one night so we ordered the following.

* Tuna Tataki Nigiri (120php). I liked this one. I'm more of a salmon guy but I found this order good as well.
* Salmon Oyako Don (220php). Think of raw salmon + rice. Not much of a pair, right? But I appreciate this meal. The salmon was super fresh!
* Black Pepper Chicken Don (220php). Your usual rice bowl. I liked that the chicken was tender and flavorful.
* Fried Maki Salmon with Cream Cheese (160php). This was delicious! Of course salmon and cheese. Come on.

I love the idea of this restaurant - from the touch screen menu to the "bullet" train serving your food. Staff were attentive during this visit especially for our small requests like water and ice (for my soda). 128514

P.S. Ordering using their tablet can be very addicting. 128517

Genki Sushi is a japanese franchise that was brought here in the Philippines by the same people behind Mango Tree and Cusina Peruvia. The concept of Genki Sushi was very much on the creative technology of japanese. This resto is one of a kind. You have your menu on a tablet and you select which food do you like and press order. In a few minutes a cute sushi train128647will arrive to serve your food. Kawaii128525 Since this visit was sponsored |ooloo rendezvoos we were given the chance to order all we want!!!

I join the table of Roegan T, EJ B,Shelly R and Steffhanie S. While on the other table was Clarissa P, Reich T, Raisa Z and Christa U. 128522

EJ B leading the way we order a variety of sushi, sashimi, few appetizer and dessert. A total of a whopping 40 plates128562128562. Sorry Roegan T nasira diet mo hehe.128514

Everything was top notch but here are some of the food we got to try:
127843Sushi127843
127843 seared salmon with pollack roe - one of my fave for the night. pollack roe with mayo tasted like cheese and the fresh seared salmon combined was a big mouthful of goodness
127843Grilled River Eel and Whole Sea Eel - I combine this two item since both of them tasted almost the same. I love the teriyaki like sauce on them and for an eel I think this is very cheap.
127843Cheese Premium Shrimp - Genki sushi cheese are just so good and blends well with this fresh seafoods.
127843Tempura Tuna Roll -deep fried tempura tuna rolls with teriyaki sauce. I also love this one and serving was big!
127843California Rolls-for me nothing special with this typical california maki but go for the spicy version for a variation
127843Seared Salmon with Black Pepper - another fave of mine. The black pepper bring out the delicious flavor of the salmon.

128031Sashimi128031
128031Hamachi (Yellow Fin Tuna) - this one is a steal for only 290PHP a lot cheaper than other japanese resto. I love the prefect thick cut of the Hamachi and even with just this I'm all good!
128031Northern Shrimp - this cute suahe like shrimp was so good. Love the sweetness of the shrimp
128031Salmon Belly - Anothe top notch choice for their sashimi. If you love salmon sashimi better go for this belly variant

127836Other127836
127836Chuka Wakame - a great starter a seaweed kind of salad. I love it.
127836Agadeshi Tofu - Typical agadeshi tofu. Quite similar to omakase
127836Fried Squid - one of the few hot dish that we got and lucky we got a delicious one. Love the perfect golden brown coating withb delicious squid inside. Love it!
127836Miso Soup - perfect way to lower all the food we have eaten. Typical delicious miso soup.

127856Dessert127856
127856GreenTea IceCream - Matcha lover here128587 and this one is definitely 128154.
127856Rare Japanese Cheesecake - after the greentea icecream, this one is probably my next fave for the dessert. Love the aroma and light taste in every bite.
127856Double Matcha Fromage - I was a bit looking for the matcha flavor in it. Maybe the cheesecake flavor overpower the taste.
127856Tokyo Tiramisu - differ from the usual tiramisu. Love the bitter dark choco mousse and the surprise lemon jelly beneath completes the flavor.

Overall I love everything about this place, from the DIY greentea, to the sushi train, attentive crew and all affordable delicious food. This might be one of the sponsored rendezvoos that I went to. Thanks Genki and |ooloo. Gonna invite my family when you open in UP Town and for sure gonna drop by BGC for Genki again. 128522

New dining experience before going back to the grind with Cel C It was a less crowded Sunday in BGC. When we arrived at Genki Sushi, we are quickly seated. I must admit, I'm excited though not much hungry.

First timers! Using an iPad, you can place your orders (max of 4 for a batch). Few clicks and orders sent. We enjoyed waiting for our orders delivered via a "shinkansen conveyor belt", toy train that serves as an express tray. Another, I love the hot water faucet on the table for the DIY green tea. Great!

I ordered my usual favorites: Salmon Sashimi (P250), Spicy Salmon (2 pcs for P100). I also tried something new:

Black Tofu Skin with Spicy Tuna Salad (P100)- thought it was just a salad, but it has rice beneath. Heavy one!

Flying Fish Roe (P100)- my favorite for tonight! Warning! It has wasabi inside.128522 fish eggs are so good!

Shrimp Row (P90)- has almost the same taste as the fish roe, but less wasabi.

Verdict: for first timers, this is a fun dining experience. I find it a bit pricey, yet aside from the experience, i enjoyed new kinds of sushi. Green tea is also worth noting! Making your own is a new thing for me.

Japanese Sunday with bff Sandra Y. Coz traffic is so much bearable on a Sunday and not so long wait for a table.

It's definitely a different dining experience. I was able to dine at a Japanese resto in Singapore using iPads but here at Genki Sushi, it seems there is no contact policy. Haha. Order via iPad, then your order will be served by a Shinkansen conveyor-belt style. Well it was't really a conveyor belt, but more like a toy car on an express trail. Another new experience is the make-your-own green tea. They have a small tap for hot water and matcha powder on the table. You then make your own tea. Love it! The tea is superb we really liked it.

Orders arrived pretty quickly, except for the tempura don which took a while. It was fun watching our orders and other people's orders arrive.

Salmon sashimi - P250 128077🏼128077🏼128077🏼128077🏼
4pcs with a small lemon wedge, a big leaf that I don't know what it is, and some radish. I really looove sashimi and this one's a winner. It's just so expensive though. Other resto would serve 5-6pcs for about the same price.

Spicy tuna sushi - P100 128077🏼128077🏼128077🏼
2pcs. Now I'm not really a fan of sushi but this one's just okay for me. I like the spicy kick though.

Tempuradon - P320 128077🏼128077🏼128077🏼128077🏼128077🏼
2pcs shrimp tempura and several veggies. Love this one! The sauce is different. I've never had that kind of sauce for tempura before. It's a bit thick and really tasty. I really enjoyed this one. The serving is enough to fill me without the other dishes so I wasn't able to finish this one.

Flying fish roe (in photo with tempura) P100 128077🏼128077🏼128077🏼128077🏼128077🏼
We both love this! It has a good amount of wasabi in the middle that will really give you a kick! OMG, I got a bit teary-eyed because of the wasabi, which I actually liked! Hehe

Shrimp roe - P90 128077🏼128077🏼128077🏼
Looks and tastes like the flying fish roe but it doesn't have the wasabi so it was just okay for me.

Miso soup - P90 128077🏼128077🏼128077🏼128077🏼
It's a big serving! But I still find it too expensive. Good for two na rin.

It was a nice experience. Something new and the free green tea is really a plus. Servers were very attentive and we didn't have to wait long.

What a cool way to bring the 'sushi train' to the Philippines even tho it's a different kind of 'train'.

Food ranges from PHP80-300+. Everything went well during our visit and I surely fell inlove with their spicy makis.

Been seeing Genki Sushi in Bonifacio Stopover and at first I thought it was just another sushi house. But each time I pass by the place my curiosity travels. What could they be serving differently? What could be their gimmick? I was also attracted to their brightly lit store and their grumpy logo. I've been asking the husband to go since we both love sushi but the email of P happened first. If you get an email from P, it's always a G! Lol Hi Peanut D. 128517128516128522

Genki Sushi on a Thursday night with |ooloo peeps! We were accompanied by their Manage DJ and his assistant Michelle. Two tables for 8 hungry foodies plus our kasabwat Roegan T.

Genki Sushi is a franchise from Japan brought to the local scene by the same people who brought Mango Tree, Coca and Cocina Peruvia. Their ordering system was pretty cool! Check their offerings from the iPads installed in each table, get lost with their wide selection of sushi, maki, sashimi etc, get carried away and order order order! Seriously, you can only order a max of 4 each time because orders are brought to your table by a train! Yup, no staff involved, except when you need any assistance of course. The train will deliver your orders and will stop right were it should. Press the yellow button and it will go back to the kitchen. Cool!

We had a sushi feast that night and DJ allowed us to order whatever we wanted from their menu. We had the following ---

> Sashimi: Tuna, Salmon, Yellow Tail

Their Sashimi were all good! Melt in your mouth, fresh, clean with no funky fishy smell. Yellow Tail was something I haven't tried before. It wasn't bad. It just had a more slimy feel when you bite, but that's just me.

> Sushi/Maki:

- Spicy Double Maki Salmon
- Kyuri Unagi Maki Roll
- Seared Salmon Black Pepper (4 orders!)
- Seared Tamago Black Pepper
- Spicy Tuna Roll
- California Maki Roll
- Cheese Premium Shrimps
- Seared Scallops with Pollock Roe
- Seared Crab Black Pepper
- Seared Salmon with Pollock Roe
- Seared Salmon Skin
- Tuna Tataki Nigiri

That's a total of 12 types of sushi, two orders each! We loved the Seared Salmon Black Pepper so much that we went for seconds - 4 orders! Imagine, a thin slice of salmon lightly seared with just the right amount of fat, topped with mayo and black pepper - it's melt in your mouth plus it had a nice smoky taste and a good kick from the black pepper! Insanely good, it's highly recommended.

My other two super favorites were the Seared Salmon and Seared Scallops with Pollock Roe! Pollock Roe is the main ingredient of Mentaiko. So if you fancy this delicay, you should order these two! The roe had a creamy texture and was filled with umamilicious goodness! Both salmon and scallops were melt in your mouth I can eat 10 of these!

If you want your salmon with a kick of spice, go get the Spicy Double Maki Salmon. Salmon rolled with cucumber then the entire thing was topped with seared salmon! The Seared Salmon Skin was good as well. Gosh, just get all the salmon Maki and Sushi!

If you want something that's cheesy, definitely go for the Cheese Premium Shrimps. The shrimp was juicy and succulent and the best part? It's topped with a hefty serving of cheese!

Other stuff that we tried are the following --

> Agedashi Tofu - soft and silky tofu cubes with a good crunchy coating and a sweet sauce. This was topped with bonito flakes.

> Genki Salad: MUST ORDER! It's a medley of all things good - crisp lettuce, crunchy broccoli, the juiciest and freshest cherry tomatoes, corn kernels, shrimp sashimi and salmon sashimi all smothered with a mayo based dressing that had hints of Mentaiko!

> Chuka Makame: this seaweed salad was a palette cleanser and gave that much needed break when my tummy was about to explode because of sushi overload! It had a nice citrus kick that was balanced by the sesame oil plus good crunch from the seaweed strips.

> Fried Tofu Skin: A sweet lump of rice wrapped in a thin tofu envelope, this one was more of a dessert for me. It wasn't bad but since we were having some salmon party, this came in as my least favorite.

Even though we were already so full, we still managed to order a handful of desserts!

> Matcha Ice Cream: Matcha!!! Legit Matcha ice cream with that grassy bitter taste - but not too overpowering.

> Matcha Cheesecake: this one's good too. A layer of plain cheesecake that was a little tart topped with a thicker layer of Matcha Cheesecake that was lighter and finished off with some matcha cake crumbs. Each layer was smooth and creamy and blended well together. Just a tip though - if you will order this with the Matcha ice cream, make sure to try this first coz the Matcha ice cream will over shadow the flavor of the Matcha Cheesecake.

> Traditional Tiramisu: I don't have much Tiramisu experience and I've only really liked UCC's version so far. I want a subtle Mascarpone flavor and a balanced but strong coffee and liquor kick. Genki Shushi's version had all three fulfilled! I'm one happy kid!

> Japanese Tiramisu: This one's odd for a tiramisu. According to DJ, this and their cheesecake were imported directly from Japan. It was more like a chocolate mousse.

> Rare Japanese Cheesecake: no bake cheesecake that was made using gelatin to provide some structure, this one was very light and a shy away from the usual New York Cheesecake. It didn't have that tarty cream cheese flavor, but rather mild notes of cheese that I don't know what. Each bite though reminded me of Pablo's Sabrels.

Other than the cool ordering system here in Genki Sushi, they also have a dispenser of hot water in each table that came in the form of a faucet. If you fancy green tea, they have a container full of green tea powder that you can mix with the hot water anytime you want to.

I loved this visit! Genki Sushi definitely does not scrimp on the good stuff and their prices are reasonable. Can't wait to go back with the husband!

For someone who only a few years ago wasn't very fond of raw food or sushi rolls, sushi has now become one of my top favorite food to eat.

Enter in Genki Sushi, a Japanese sushi brand which made its entrance into the Philippine market only a few months prior.

Located at BGC's Bonifacio Stopover (walking distance to St Luke's), it can be easy to miss if you're not looking carefully for it, as it's nestled among many other food establishments in the building. When you see it though, no mistaking, it is all-Japanese, all sushi, and without a doubt an experience you won't easily forget.

The first time I tried Genki Sushi as a brand, was way back when I was living in Xiamen, and it quickly grew to become one of my favorite spots. Though in a different city and a different country, the atmosphere may not be the same, nor the way the food is served, but the service and experience still gives off that feeling of high quality and exemplary food and dining that makes customers want to come back.

I was lucky enough to be in Manila to join a looloo rendezvous, and it happened to be at Genki Sushi, which I had been eyeing for a while.

Design: Genki Sushi is a pretty vibrant place. Majority of the seats are designed as booths, for those coming in with friends or family. There is also a long table available for individuals wishing to be seated alone. The maximum seating capacity for the restaurant is 94 people.

When it comes to ordering, each booth is given a screen where they can choose the sushi orders they'd like to get. Guests click the dishes they want, and confirm that the list is good to go. Each batch of orders has a maximum of 4 plates, and the plates come on a sushi "train" that comes out of the kitchen, and stops at the table where it was ordered. Once the dishes are taken out of the train, push a button and the train rolls back into its "station" awaiting other tables' orders.

Most orders take only a few minutes to make, but some of the other orders may take longer depending on the dish, or the number of customers.

Apart from ordering willy nilly, guests may also view their total bill on the screen, to check how much they've spent so far. Well, when it comes to good sushi, it's easy to keep ordering and not realise how much it's all amounted to, so it's good to remember to check the bill once in a while.

For the food service, the managers ordered dishes that they highly recommended we try. We also got to order some of the dishes we found visually appealing/appetising, care of the order screen. Here are a few of them:

➡️Seared Tamago with Black Pepper: I love eggs, and I love Japanese tamago, so this is obviously one dish I quite liked. It's sweet, but the hint of black pepper at the end of each bite is something you will enjoy.

➡️Spicy Tuna Roll: I'm usually up for spicy tuna anyday, but this version of Spicy Tuna Roll was a little different from what I'm used to. Albeit good, I felt that it needed more of a tuna kick in it to really make me go..TUNA!

➡️Salmon/Tuna Sashimi: Good cut, good flavor. These are a staple at most sushi restaurants so no explanation is in order.

➡️Spicy Double Salmon: Salmon on the inside, salmon on the outside, and with more than a tinge of that spicy kick. What could go wrong??!!

➡️Seared Salmon with Black Pepper: A nice thick slice of salmon topped off with mayo and black pepper. Yummy!

➡️Seared Salmon Skin: One of my favorites from the trip. Yummy salmon skin, and mixed in with that japanese mayo and rice. I found this very filling.

➡️ Fried Tofu Skin: Inari is one of my recent sushi favorites. Some say it's too sweet to be a dish, but I love it anyways!

➡️ Seared Salmon Pollock Roe: Also one of my favorites from the evening! Juicy and tender, and a wonderful slice topped onto every roll.

Desserts:

➡️ Green Tea Ice Cream: When in Japan (or in this case a Japanese restaurant), always go for the matcha ice cream! Genki Sushi's matcha ice cream is deeee-licious. Soft, creamy, and not too sweet. My table couldn't get enough of this!

➡️Tokyo Tiramisu: My favorite dessert of the evening, to be honest. I loved the just-right chocolate sweet flavor, with that jelly mix at the bottom of the dish. I could eat this all day~

➡️Tiramisu: For those who love tiramisu, this is unlike most local tiramisu we have. Dark chocolate lovers will love this, as it leans more towards the bitter-ish side than the sweet one.

➡️Green Tea Cheesecake: Green Tea + Cheesecake = awesomeness!

Price: With any restaurant, it's always good to check how much the food experience will cost you. For a table of 4 ladies, our total bill came to a little over Php6,000 if I'm not mistaken. But considering we ordered about 2 of most dishes, and of course that we tried more than our appetites could actually eat (since we wanted to try so many different kinds, and since the establishment recommended a lot to us as well), I would estimate that a full stomach would cost one person about Php800-1,200, give or take. It really depends on how full you want to be, and how much you order, but for the price, this is quite on par with other standard Japanese sushi restaurants in the city.

Plus, imagine the experience of getting your food delivered directly to your table! It's really quite something to experience. Definitely a fun treat with family or friends.

It was so great to meet EJ B, Dennis O, Reich T, Roegan T, Shelly R, Clarissa P, and Raisa Z. Thanks again Looloo for arranging the event, Peanut D for the invite (we need to meet IRL next time!), and to Genki Sushi for sponsoring the entire thing. It was fantastic, and I'd love to come back soon. 128513

You in the mood for sushi?  I am always in the mood for sushi.  The Sushi Gods are in my favor as my nth looloo rendezvooz is at Genki Sushi.  Woo-hoo (cue "I'm turning Japanese"  song here)

Genki is probably one of the last remaining restaurants i haven't tried at Stopover.  I had plans of dining here but the lemon grass pork banh mi from BMK is too darn tasty.  Compulsions aside.  I was ecstatic for sushi night!

We were greeted by our generous hosts,  the awesome twosome - Nerissa and Dee J.  They have us some insider information about the restaurant.  Did you know that Genki stands for "active or have a lot of energy"?   This doesn't fit the frowning face on their logo eh?  The idea behind the logo is to attract people who is having a bad day to dine and leave the restaurants feeling Genkified!

We got a lil tutorial on their high tech ordering process.   The ipad menu is nifty,  just select and hit order.  And let us not forget the thingamajig that delivers the food! 

Let us talk about food,  shall we.

We tried some of their bestsellers and our generous hosts gave us free reign on the others that we want to try.

| Spicy Tuna Roll
| California Maki
| Seared Tamago with Black Pepper
| Salmon Sashimi
| Tuna Sashimi
| Agedashi Tofu
| Cheese Premium Shrimp
| Seared Hokkaido Scallops with Pollock Roe
| Spicy Double Salmon
| Seared Salmon Black Pepper
| Kyuri Unari Roll
| Seared Salmon Pollock  Roe
| Seared Kani  Kama with Bkack Pepper
| Genki Salad
| Tofu Skin

Note:  we got two servings of each. 

Everything they served is delicious.  Put that on the record.  The sashimi is so good,  everything is fresh,  i love the yellow fin tuna.  The tamago is a revelation,  how in the bloody hell can they make egg so delicious?  Everything served with salmon is a winner!  Biased opinion as i love anything salmon.  The scallops and shrimp is what dreams are made of.

Sweets

| Green Tea Ice Cream
| Tiramisu
| Rare Japanese Cheesecake
| Japanese Tiramisu
| Matcha Cheesecake

I loved all of them!  Especially the green tea icr cream and matcha cheesecake - because Matcha is life.   Can i just say they make a mean tiramisu,  a perfect combination of espresso and liquor.  The Japanese variant is a lil on the sweet side and the lemon on the bottom add a lil tang.  The cheesecake is not for everyone,  this is not the usual you can get at coffee shops.  The cheese flavour is pronounced,  it reminds me kesong puti. 

I've tried a lot of Japanese restaurants l,  what i like about Genki is that they dont add gimmicks nor complicate their food,  they make the main ingredient stand out hence everything they serve is mouth-watering and extremely tasty.

Sushi Night was fun,  fun,  fun!  Excellent service, good food and good company.

Thank you looloo fot my nth rendezvooz!

Thank you Genki Sushi for letting us play with your toys and stuffing our stomachs with good food.

It was last Thursday when I attended another looloo rendezvoos that happened at this awesome Japanese restaurant, Genki Sushi.

Genki Sushi is a franchise from Japan and its first branch is located inside Bonifacio Global City, at exactly Bonifacio's Stopover 2nd level.

Upon entering the establishment on a Thursday night, a lot of people were having dinner there. Given its very straightforward setting, you won't get intimidated to enter and look for a spot for yourself.

I joined the gang as soon as I arrived and there were already a lot of plates in our table. It looked visually overwhelming, and of course, I was excited. But before the eating part, let me tell you what makes Genki Sushi your unusual Japanese restaurant.

Instead of having waiters come to you to ask for your orders, they have tablets per table with the menus in it. It's your electronic way of ordering wherein you input the quantity of your orders given the photos of the dishes from their high tech menu. Your orders will be placed in a tray and once you're all done, just hit send and it will be sent to the kitchen.

But wait, there's more. Instead of having waiter come to you to deliver your orders, bullet trains will stop by your side and deliver your dishes to you. Isn't that so awesome, right? It's actually my first time to visit Genki Sushi and I really enjoyed the ordering system. I am sure you would, too!

OK. Time to talk about their dishes. Given that we ordered almost everything from their menu, we were able to try one item after the other.

For the starters, we tried their Genki Salad, Miso Soup and Chuka Wakame.

The Genki Salad had fresh tomatoes, lettuce and salmon cubes that I really enjoyed eating. The vinaigrette wasn't that powerful though.

The Miso Soup was served big too. It was given to us really hot and its best eaten as soon as it's placed in front of you so that you can appreciate it more.

The Chuka Wakame was purely seaweeds. It was crunchy and crispy, tasted really fresh and tasty.

My favorites amongst all that we tried were the following: Seared Shrimp with Pollock Roe, Seared Salmon with Black Pepper, Crispy Spicy Salmon Roll, all the Sashimi - Tuna, Salmon and Yellow Tail, Salmon Belly, Fresh Tuna, Spicy Tuna, Cheese Premium Shrimp, Tempura Tuna Roll, Seared Salmon Skin Nigiri, and the Agedashi Tofu.
Yes, almost 3/4 of our orders became my favorites. Haha! They were all so yummy like that!

I really enjoyed both Seared Shrimp with Pollock Roe, Cheese Premium Shrimp, and Seared Salmon with Black Pepper. The freshness of the items were already a given but what stood out in these items were the combination of egg and the Japanese mayonnaise that gave it a really delicious and comforting taste.

The Crispy Spicy Salmon Roll caught my attention because of the nicely placed salmon flakes on the top of the roll that made it look really pretty and the taste was a win too.

The Tuna, Salmon and Yellow Tail Sashimis and Salmon Belly were all so good. My! I can eat all these items again and again. The Yellow Tail was the best. Huge, thickly sliced, you will get to taste the delicious flavor that it has.

The Fresh and Spicy Tuna were yummy too. I loved how generously served the tuna was and it would really make you addicted to it, again and again.

The Tempura Tuna Roll and Seared Salmon Skin Nigiri got these really big serving that's good for sharing.

For desserts, we got to try almost everything too. From the Matcha and Strawberry Ice Creams to the Rare Japanese Cake, Japan Tiramisu and Matcha Cheesecake, my, everything was delicious and delicious and delicious only!

I liked the Rare Japanese Cake and Matcha Cheesecake the most. I loved how good their smell were and how fine and delicious tasting the cakes were after every bite.

Overall, the experience was so so good! The food was awesome. This is definitely one of the Japanese establishments that you should visit as soon as you can!

Oh god. I just had 12 different types of Sushi:

Genki Sushi - 1
Me - 0

So here's my personal favorite, and I must say you gotta try my Top 2 💯

10024 Seared Salmon with Pollock Roe
10024 Seared Salmon Skin
Nothing ever goes wrong with Salmon, I don't know if I'm being biased but I swear these two are really goooood! (Pinky promise)

Here are the other sushis I've tried:
127843 Spicy Double Maki Salmon
- I like... or should I say LOVE the double amount of Salmon in it.
127843 Kyuri Unagi Maki Roll
127843 Seared Salmon with Black Pepper
127843 Tuna Tataki Nigiri
- This is like Spicy Tuna from Nihon, minus the crispy flakes though it has a different twist, it has chili on top which I actually liked
127843 Seared Tamago Black Pepper
- How can a simple egg be this good?
127843 Spicy Tuna Roll
- One of my original favorite, A MUST!
127843 California Maki Roll
- The usual Maki, everybody's go to sushi
127843 Cheese Premium Shrimp
127843 Seared Scallops with Pollock Roe
- This is the booomb!!! I love how the creamy pollock roe compliments the scallops 128069
127843 Seared Crab Black Pepper

Next up!!! Here are the sides and sashimi we tried:

128031Tuna Sashimi
128031Salmon Sashimi
128031Yellow Tail Sashimi
- Its my first time to try this kind of sashimi, it was fresh and tasty. Its good to try something new
127845 Fried Tofu Skin
- This was too sweet for me. Its like Tikoy but Japanese version.
127845 Agedashi Tofu
- I don't like Tofu that much. So for a tofu.... This one was pretty good, cause I actually ate two.
127811 Genki Salad
127811 Chuka Wakame
- Seaweeeds, YUUUM 128069

And last but definitely not the least, Hello Dessert!!!!!!!!

I'm a sucker for Matcha, so yes these two got my attention!!!!

127856 Matcha Double Fromage
127846 Green Tea Ice Cream
I swear you gotta try both. The Matcha Fromage was light and creamy. While the Green Tea Ice Cream was just right, and lets be honest what can go wrong with an Ice Cream 🙄
127856 Rare Japanese Cheese Cake
It tasted like Kesong Puti though I didn't find it really special. It kinda tasted too plain for me.
127856 Tiramisu
127856 Tokyo Tiramisu
I'd stick with the Classic Tiramisu instead of the Tokyo Tiramisu, I like the Classic taste of coffee, chocolate and liquor in the normal Tiramisu.

All in, I'd give this place 5/5. The place was cute and cozy. The quality of Japanese food they provided us was A+

@loolooo, thanks for having me!!!! I enjoy seeing new fooood and faces 10024

Sushi Night!

I was invited for the Nth time to join another Looloo Rendezvoos at Genki Sushi BGC Stopover branch. Nerissa and Dee J greeted us when we reached our table. Yes, they were the same team in Cocina Peruvia who welcomed and entertained us.

Genki Sushi is a restaurant franchised from Japan offers various kinds of sushi as their main product. The restaurant is open daily from 11AM to 10PM.

We were divided into two groups before we start. Dee J's Group and Mitch's Group (which I belong together with Roegan, Steffanie, Dennis, Shelly and Riziell). Mitch briefed us first on how to used the digital menu and kart for ordering. She also mentioned the sauces for sushi and wasabi upon request.

THE PLACE

Hi-tech! They used digital menu for ordering. The interior of Genki Sushi is more on yellow color. It has a bright and spacious restaurant. It can accommodate at least 100 pax.

THE SERVICE

During our visit, Dee J and Nerissa's team were very accommodating. They served us well. Credits to the service staff who always refill our empty cup with water. And they were very alert when we need assistance to our table. Keep it up.

Watch out for Genki Sushi as they will open their next branch this month in U.P. Town Center, Quezon City. Hooray! 128588🏼

Nice meeting you Rizelle V, Raisa Z and Christa U and it's good to see you again Roegan T, Clarissa P, Reich T, Dennis O, Shelly R and Steffhanie S.

Thank Genki Sushi Team and Looloo crew for having us.

Thank you Peanut D for the invitation.

The event was sponsored and paid by Genki Sushi. 10084128515

I'm not actually a fan of raw food, but my friend made me tried the seared salmon with black pepper. I was literally crying while eating it but it taste good, but I'm not going to try again. Loved that their green tea is free.

Finally! Ebi tempura that is not greasy nor tastes like rancid oil... the tempura udon was good! But the serving was small. The order screens were a little bit intimidating but once you get the idea, it was easy. A bit pricey if you would ask me...

Whew, was finally able to try out the kaitenzushi happenings at Genki Sushi in BGC Stopover...it was an overwhelming experience at first, seeing all the foodie graphics and using the ipad to order....aside from browsing the menu, it could also show how much you've already consumed, plus from there you could call out for the bill as well 12852210084128077🏻

Definitely spoiled by the wide variety of sushi- sashimi choices ( grilled river eel blew me away at first bite ) and more unfolded subcategories of yummy japanese treats.....every serving was done with novelty and cuteness, in fresh quality.... served in speedy moving trays like a speeding shinkansen approaching your table...so cool! 100841008410084

moreover you could make unlimited servings of hot green tea :) as you have your own hot water faucet and a canister of green tea powder on your table :)

Also loved the unli white pickled ginger on the side....Can't stop munching on it!

Truly enjoyable dining experience! It was like dinnertime and gametime rolled into one! Yippeee :)

Underestimated that those little plates could fill up my tummy hehehe, 12852210084128077🏻 would definitely go back again 128522128522128522

Interesting concept resto, order food from a tablet showing photo and price of food, food delivered on a train. Their chawanmushi is silky soft , flavorful and melts in the mouth. Other food items are equally good tasting and fresh. Free self service macha tea, macha powder on the table , hot water tap at the end of the table. Make your own tea. Unlimited refill.
