Restaurant Review: Sakae Sushi

Published on April 14, 2011

I am not a big fan of Japanese food. Although it’s a misconception that their food is always raw, this notion keeps us from exploring Japanese cuisine. But there was something with the recently-opened Japanese restaurant in Robinson’s Manila which caught our attention.

The restaurant's interior is really simple. It also wasn’t the empty aquarium outside that attracted us. It was the carousel of plates with different kinds of sushi that drew us closer. Sakae Sushi offers an all-day sushi-all-you-can treat for only PHP399.

I was still full from breakfast but Boyet was really craving for a big bowl of hot soup. The waitress told us that their ramen is already good for sharing. So when the big bowl of the Teriyaki Chicken Ramen arrived at our table, it was enough proof that she was telling the truth.

Boyet was a bit disappointed because it wasn’t as hot as he was expecting. Good thing though that the noodles were not soggy, cooked the way I want it. The chicken strips were tender and distinctively had a smoky flavor.

It wouldn’t be a wise decision to avail the sushi buffet so I settled for the ala carte. The plates are color-coded depending on its price. There were a lot of choices making it really hard for me to choose. Add also the fact that I am not really familiar with most of them. So Boyet kept on teasing me that I should just get the blue plates because those are the cheapest. Haha!

I don’t know the name of this one so let’s just call it “the one on the green plate”. Wrapped in nori was a ball of rice and then topped with sweet corn and kani. I was planning to get another plate but I was surprised that “the one on the green plate” was heavy. It was small but terrible. I’ll probably come back to try the sushi-all-you-can. :)
