Sushi Ninja – Westgate Center, Alabang

Having Sushi Ninja across Fitness First in Westgate Center is a blessing and a curse. It’s good to have one of my favorite cuisines within reach but that can simply waste all the sweat and tears shredded on workout, too.

I did not expect the place to be crowded because it looks quiet and neat from the outside. They definitely are able to establish a good customer base for the quality of food and service they provide.

Sake (Salmon) Sashimi (PHP320.00). This is a staple for me whenever I go to a Japanese restaurant. 7 slices for PHP320.00 is not bad. This sake sashimi is not the best but far from being the worst either.

Hiroshima Maki (PHP380.00). I was surprised with the serving size of their maki rolls. Unlike the typical case when food looks bigger in photos, this one looks much smaller in photos. If you are not a heavy eater, try not to order too much. This roll has spicy salmon, kani, ebi tempura, spicy mayo, tempura flakes & ebiko. Just imagine how much seafood there is and how rich the flavor is. With everything taken with one bite, it’s an explosion for flavors! Want more spice? Ask for more spicy mayo for hotter experience!

Shinjuku Maki (PHP490.00). This roll is even bigger than Hiroshima Maki. I had difficulty eating a piece in one bite. This roll is deep-fried with spicy tuna, unagi, tamago, topped with kani, ebiko, Japanese mayo, special sauce and black sesame seeds. The sweetness of tamago gave this maki a unique experience. Again, the balance and blend of flavors in this is just delectable!

Oedo Toshi (PHP360.00). It is my first time to see this way of serving wagyu beef. A slice of wagyu beef with wasabi mayo and negi on top of a toshi. Toshi is deep-fried battered rice ball. Although I am not a fan of this, the wagyu beef is tender and complements the rice ball well.

The Seventh Hero - Omakase - Tenzaru Soba

Tenzaru Soba (Php 255.00). I am very happy with this piece. It is a combination of different kinds of tempura and cold noodles. To eat this, you have to toss the raw quail egg, radish and wasabi into the dipping sauce. Get a portion of the soba, dip it in the sauce, and enjoy the soothing texture and taste of this amazing dish.
