Kanyoen Yakiniku Restaurant ♥ ♥ ♥


We were not hungry. Really.

We were just sticking to our schedule which said dinner at 8pm.

It wasn't our fault that we finished lunch at 5:30pm. Rico was to blame. His pigs were late.

We just had enough time to check in at the hotel, laze around a bit, shower and change for our yakiniku dinner.

At 7:45pm, our bellies were still stuffed, but more than ready for Kanyoen

Yukke Sashimi - this chopped sirloin marinated in sesame oil and mixed with raw egg
was so divine it was gone in a flash

Senmai Sashimi - the raw ox tripe had no distinct taste, I think you eat it more for the texture

Namayasai Salada - simple but satisfying

The non-beef eaters had Tontoro Yaki, a special Japanese marbled pork
(They grilled this first, of course.)

 And Wakadori Momoyaki, chicken thigh in mixed sauce



The rest of us went on a beef-eating spree:

Tanshio - ox tongue seasoned with salt and pepper

Leba Yaki - veal liver with mixed sauce



IMG 1349

Jo Karubi - special boneless short ribs with mixed sauce

The Jo Karubi was excellent. We made sure each of us had his own plate of this tender beefy
goodness to avoid any fighting and name-calling and kicking under the table.

Some vegetables to balance the meal

Yakiniku time!!!

Until now the sight of this makes me drool

This is how I like to eat my beef - topped with kimchi and wrapped in lettuce

Some sake to warm the stomach

And hot tea for the kids. I wanted to take home the super cute teapot!

We were sad that Kanyoen doesn't serve desserts, and raised our snobbish eyebrows (some of
them eyebrows were fake, lol!) at these complimentary lychee jellos. WTH! They were frozen!

But turned out they were extremely delicious frozen! It was like eating lychee sorbet in little cups.
I vowed that when I get back to Manila ima freeze all that jello at home! 



It was a perfect first dinner in Cebu.

Everyone had an amazing time cooking and eating.

Obviously, someone enjoyed it more than the others.
If Jin loves to eat, her cousin-in-law Ton undoubtedly loves to eat more!
