Verdict:

Verdict 2-2-3

Location: Saibachi

Food: Gyudon

Sides: None

Drink: Lychee juice

Japanese Rice Bowl

Worth a try!!!

Summary:

Before the Korean Food invasion, Japanese-themed restaurant started sprouting like mushrooms a while back. Some have moved on and some still stands. Saibachi is one that has kept standing even if they are not considered as an authentic one. Going back to the dish, their version of Gyudon is anything but short of expectations – the sauce is almost very near the authentic taste even the rice used is very comparable. Just don’t mind the occasional chewy beefy strips, this can be a very good option for an economical satisfaction of Jap food craving.

Verdict:

Verdict 2-3-3

 

Location: Nathaniel’s Bakeshop

Food: BBQ Porkchop Rice Meal

Sides: Buttered Vegetables

Drink: None

Barbecue

Very tender and a little bit juicy and more!

Summary:

With a strong reputation of great food most particularly desserts and pastries, Nathaniel’s is still considered for a good option for dining in, and we’re quite curious to check it out. With their BBQ Pork Chop Rice meal, it can be regarded as one for the usual Filipino dish in which you can be able to try at any given day. The BBQ sauce is already dipped around the meat during grilling, but if you still need more, a cup full of sauce will be served for you to use when needed. The tenderness of the meat is exceptional too.

Verdict:

Verdict 2-3-3
