had dinner with my friends from company xx and the guys wanted japanese. i would have suggested haiku but then i kinda got a haiku overdose during my last outing. so i thought of john and yoko at greenbelt 5.
we found nemo (PHP 790) is a platter of sushi and sashimi. it has the philadephia roll, 2 other rolls which i do not know, kani, tuna and salmon sashimi. we all liked the philadelphia roll and the salmon sashimi, it was delectable in the palate. so for this platter, the salmon items were a hit.
for our mains, we got scallop teppan (PHP 399), which my friend j wanted. it's basically scallops cooked teppanyaki style but were served on the shells. very straight forward, if they have huge scallops inside i might have been wowed.
another shellfish is the baked oysters which i geared away from because it was night time and don't want to get into any stomach trouble.
fried green chicken (PHP 228), is fried chicken with nori bits. i find the chicken dry and overcooked.
the best thing in this meal for me would be the japaella. well cooked rice, soft and tender with the japanese flavors lingering in your palate topped with huge shrimps and very tender chicken teriyaki. this is probably a reason for me to come back.
they serve bottomless iced tea at PHP 108, pretty steep but it's bottomless and you have access to three flavors. they are all colored iced teas with red for calamansi, green for lime and blue for dalanghita. wasn't able to try the green one but i loved the dalanghita flavor.
