Watami Japanese Casual Restaurant ♥


IMG 2631


I would eat at Watami quite often when I was still based in Hong Kong. It was one of the very few restaurants near our Clearwater Bay office. I would go there for quick lunches or quick dinners before shopping at my favorite place - the supermarket!

I was excited to see the casual Japanese restaurant finally open in Manila, but sad to discover that their menu is rather limited. I do not see my Watami Hong Kong favorites like soft shell crab salad, baked scallops, chicken tendons, and all the yummy matcha desserts.

Deluxe Assorted Sushi (salmon, scallop, shrimp) - not bad

Salmon and Flying Fish Roe in Stone Pot

The salmon and roe disappeared after being mixed with rice. This was a boring pot. 
Zzzzz..… zzzzz….

The Pork Rice with Egg Yolk in Stone Pot fared much better. The pork is tasty and sweet,
just like how most of us like it.

Tonpeiyaki - a Japanese omelette made with pork, cheese and cabbage.
Honestly, I could not taste anything except mustard and okonomiyaki sauce.

I did have fun playing Cooking Mama with these mini teppanyaki utensils

Matcha Tiramisu - errr… not really!
