Simple Eats: Miyabi

Been exposed to quite a few Japanese food lately but still find myself craving for more. Will tell you more about it in the next few weeks or so once the current project I’m working on can be formally announced.

Our Ninang recommended this restaurant on the 2nd floor of Pan Pacific Hotel. Being the rice guru, she said that this place serves authentic Japanese rice and not your usual daya ones. So, we trooped to Manila and decided to give this a try this month.

ON THE TABLE
Hubby ordered this Tamago Tofu for our appetizers. Yummy! A definite must try if you’re here –

Also ordered their Cuttlefish Teriyaki (Php250). Nothing special to note about though.

Hubby and Mother-in-law each ordered a Jumbo Chirashi Jo (Php980) which was supposed to be composed of imported ingredients. Both thought that Nihonbashitei served better Chirashi Don than Miyabi.

I ordered this Tokujo Bento Box (Php1080) with Gindara Teriyaki, sushi and tempura. The sushi and tempura were really good. The Gindara was so-so.

Unlike other restaurants, Miyabi has an encyclopedia like menu. Too many options, too little stomach.

Simple Eats: Yin Ying Restaurant

Located along Dasmarinas corner Yuchengco street is Yin Ying Restaurant. This is my second time to dine at this restaurant. Last time, we had late dinner. This time around, we’re having brunch here.

As with a lot of the Chinese restaurants, this is not the cleanest resto in the world. Nonetheless, you go to a Chinese resto for its food. And food we ordered!

ON THE TABLE

Pork Asado
The Pork Asado was really good! Meat was soft and sauce was sweet and tasty. Best of all, this 1/4 order is only Php125!

White Chicken
The white chicken was so-so. They gave us lots of garlic for it though. The meat was juicy but there’s a taste missing for me.

For dimsum, we ordered hakaw, rice rolls, squid and prawn ball and egg tart. The squid and prawn ball was what I liked the most. 🙂

Simple Life: Chinese New Year in Pictures

Visited Manila today to buy some last minute stuffs for my mom-in-law to bring to the US. There was a grand parade happening –

Stores were filled with Tikoys and other CNY staples. People were scrambling to buy!
