When our team decided to eat in Ooma, I was not in the mood to eat sushi. Most of their sushi items were not available because they had no cream cheese. That kinda sucks because their sushi is one of their signature dishes. It was a good thing that they have very delicious savory dishes as alternatives.

A teammate recommended that I get an order of Buta Kakuni (Slow Roasted Pork Belly in Coconut Sauce). According to the server, all dishes under the Hot Plates menu come with a bowl of rice. It’s something they don’t serve automatically so you need to ask it from the staff.

The Buta Kakuni dish had a very generous serving. It was more than enough for one person. It includes around 6-7 pieces of soft, not-so salty, not-so thin pork belly. It was so soft that it kind of melts in your mouth. The coconut sauce around it was a good complement and brings out more flavor to the pork dish, despite being a little oily.

Ooma never fails. It's one of the best japanese fusion restaurant I've been here in the metro. Almost all the things we've ordered were soooo good! You can't stop munching and actually don't want to stop munching just that your stomach will tell you enough because the stomach can't take in more food anymore, that's how good their food is. We have ordered most of their aburi maki and all were really good but what stand out to me was their scallop and tuna, kimchi prawn and ebi and kani maki. We also ordered their soft shell crab tempura, uni udon and hanger steak that comes with unlimited rice and all were superb! I have no words because It was really heavenly.

I always go back here if I want a decent and fairly priced jap food. For tonight, I let my friends placed the orders. I wasn't paying attention. So I'm sorry that I wouldn't have a much detailed review as I would hope to BUT the food in this place are definitely a 127775127775127775127775127775

The last time I visited their BGC branch, I wasn’t totally blown by their maki plates. So now, when a friend requested to have dinner here, I was willing to give Ooma another chance.

I ordered O-Gyoza and we shared a plate of Salmon Skin Aburi Maki and Spicy Tuna Maki. The gyoza was okay. There was melted cheese on top and it cooled down right away, making it hard to bit pull the gyoza from one another. The cheese had little to no taste. I didn’t feel or taste anything. The gyoza tasted good but typical. For the makis, the salmon skin was delicious. I liked the crunchy part coming from the skin but what I didn’t like was that the maki was loose and “madaling kumalas”. I’m sure it’s not just me because my friend experience the same thing but not sure if this is just our order and we just got unlucky. Either way, they have to be consistent with this. The spicy tuna maki was so-so. First, it wasn’t spicy. Second, it tasted typical and ordinary. I can tell other sushi places which had super good-tasting spicy tuna maki.

I think what’s unique about the Ooma experience is just how you put the sauce on your food and nothing else. If maki plates are Ooma’s specialty, they have to be more consistent with it.

My 2nd time to eat at Ooma. We had to wait in line to be served but just like last time, Ooma did not disappoint.

Was curious about the name so I did some Googling. Apparently, OOMA is a play on Uma, which means "good". Very apt as you will literally OO and AA when you taste their food.

For this meal, I ordered:

Corn Kakiage
This is Japanese corn balls with Nori salt and mayo dressing on the side. This is food porn at its finest and it tastes just as good as it looks.

Scallop and Tuna Aburi Maki
Their informative menu tells you that aburi means to "burn something" aka blowtorching. Order anything for this menu and you can rest assure that you will not taste anything conventional. This baby needs to be eaten in one pop to be appreciated. Do so and you will be rewarded with an awesome burst of texture and flavor. Each bite will give you a taste of scallop and tuna and everything else wonderful in between.

Ebi Tempura
The term gandang hipon does not apply. This is the best Ebi Tempura I’ve ever had. You can literally eat all of it.

Buta Kakuni
Soft and tender pork belly strips swimming in rich sauce. I loved it, but I literally had to force myself to finish the dish as it can eventually become “nakakasuya”.

There’s much to oo and ahh over at OOMA.

they say this is the closest thing you'll get to an authentic japanese food. and i joined the bandwagon when i tried the Salmon Aburi and Spicy Tuna Poke Bowl.

for a newbie poke bowl-er, i really didn't know what to expect so i read reviews. then it was served to me. at first, i thought it was small and just filled with rice. but i followed the review and mixed them all up.

and oh my! it was truly bursting with flavors. i really recommend to eat it with chopstick for each bite is so flavorful. i wasn't able to finish the whole bowl. you really have to mix it very well so that you won't be overwhelmed with the nori.

for the service, staff were attentive that they were filling my drink every chance they get.

it's a bit pricey so i really will not recommend it. but i'll return once i've been to japan and review if it's really manila's little tokyo.🇯🇵

After eating some Xiao Long Bao in Din Tai Fung, my cousin and I were still hungry so we moved to Ooma. She's be wanting to try the Poke Bowl so we figured that that day was as good time as any.

When the Poke Bowl arrived, I was quite surprised with the serving size. I was expecting it to be bigger. But I guess it worked out in the end since my cousin felt stuffed. She enjoyed the mix of flavors and the hint of spice that came with every bite.

On my end, I ordered two kinds of Aburi Maki -- the Salmon Skin and the Scallop and Tuna. My cousin and I preferred the Salmon Skin one more since we found it more flavorful since the flavors were rich and strong. Though the Scallop and Tuna was the lighter option, it was still good! I guess it was a perfect partner for the Salmon Skin one since I'd probably feel umay if I ordered two richly flavored makis.

I also ordered the Salmon Tataki and it was SO GOOD!!! I loved it more than I did both makis 128518 The salmon was fresh and paired well with the roasted pineapple and pickled radish. The ginger garlic sauce is what, for me, made the dish. When I go back to Ooma, I think I'll probably order three plates of this and finish it all since one order was so bitin for me!

Ooma god, (hehe) this is so good!!!

I was able to try the crabwich I think on the last few days of its run.

I'm not even a fan of crab but I love this! Each bite is really flavorful! To think that I was super hesitant to order this because crab. 128514 So glad I did though, no ragrets!

From the cheese to the unagi sauce, everything in this sandwich came together harmoniously. Super sarap talaga! 128523

The price is not bad at all for only P299! They should definitely add this permanently to their menu. 128149

NEVER FAILS 128293128293

Tempura, spicy tuna maki, and tataki (tuna/salmon) will forever be my favorites. Hanger steak was overrated for me (unpopular opinion). It's still good but not as good as they hyped it to be.... 128523

Finally got to try this place. 128539

What we had:
- Edamame
It came with a spicy sauce that balanced the saltiness of the beans

- Agedashi Tofu
It had nice twist since it came with a side of Arugula, fried tomatoes, pickled eggplant. It also had a vinegarette type of dressing which complemented everything

- Hanger Steak
The hype is real for this one! Plus serving is huge!

- Soft shell Crab tako maki
This was by far my favorite dish for the night!!

- Salmon Sashimi

Finally I got to visit one of my go to places during a lackluster night. Sometimes food can turn it around.

I was able to skip a queue because I was dining alone. They have a cool sushi bar for solo patrons. I did transfer though eventually having ordered three dishes.

At the entrance they have a poster that says Bold New Japanese. This sums up their dishes. The creativity is alive in all they serve.

My favorite one was their Salmon Tataki. So you brush up the soy sauce to the salmon, put some wasabi and sweet grilled pineapples and yes, sensational. There something else in that mix, but whats important is the happy effect it will bring.

The Gyudon was as amazing. It could’ve been perfect if they placed more meat though. The flowers were not only good aesthetic, it’s also adds to the dynamic flavor.

Chicken Teriyaki was well cooked and this time portions were better. The salad had a nice touch with dressing blended well with the greens.

Ooma is a must visit. I suggest you also explore their unique sushi creations. They are also instagram worthy.
