ramen nagi takes the top spot on my ramen list

oh well, i now have to recant my blog post on ippudo being the best ramen ever. ramen nagi also known as butao ramen in hk overtakes ippudo in my ramen list. i don't know if it's the variety of flavors or maybe because i can customize my ramen and not make it cloyingly rich but ramen nagi is now my favorite ramen. look at those perfectly cooked eggs...i'm salivating right now.

wholesome table

wanted something light for dinner and we decided to try wholesome table. sorry for the bad photos, there's poor lighting in the resto.

freebie bread rolls

mushroom fritters. it tasted bland for me, even the tomato sauce base didn't even provide a contrast of flavors.

burrata - because a friend raved about it. it was nice but not mindblowing.

spinach and feta dip? i forgot what this was it has sundried tomatoes if i'm not mistaken. basically a healthier version of those creamy dips and we ordered it with vegetable crudite because we really just want something light!

the menu didn't really excite me unlike my favorite green pastures and chef robby goco was a consultant for their menu as well. but food is good enough.

ooma japanese rice bar

i've been hearing great reviews about chef bruce ricketts' restos and the closest and most accessible for me is ooma which opened up in sm megmall.

soy sauce baster for your sushi...kinda difficult to use since their sushi are mostly fancy with sauces on top and i like mixing my sauce with lotsa wasabi.

tempura roll? forgot the name.

i also forgot the name of this one but it's probably kani something roll.

gyoza that seems to be broiled on top...nothing really special though i like this more than the typical gyoza.

hanger steak with sweet potato puree and truffle?...ugh i forgot the official name but this is sooooo good. this was really heaven. tender steak, crunchy mini potato chips drizzled with truffle oil. i can have this over and over again =).
