Dining for the nth time at Tempura Japanese Grill

For my brother’s post-birthday celebration, our family went out for dinner last Sunday. Since he is already working, I have finally experienced eating something for free care of him. Nyaha! :)

While our parents were busy buying new racks for our house, we went around looking for a place to eat. We saw two newly-opened restaurants in Robinson's Place Manila but I didn’t have a say in choosing since he was paying. After minutes of walking, he finally went for Tempura Japanese Grill. I can really brag that we are avid customers of this restaurant.

Papa wanted to have some noodles. The waiter suggested we could either have ramen or yakisoba. He chose the latter. Stir-fried noodles with pork, vegetables, squids and shrimps jumpstarted our feast. I enjoyed the texture of the perfectly cooked noodles because I really hate eating soggy ones.

Papa ordered two kinds of teppanyaki. The first was Mixed Vegetables Teppanyaki. The variation of colors in this dish conditioned our palates for a surprise treat. We enjoyed the Mixed Seafood Teppanyaki as much as we did with the mixed vegetables. The combination of the prawns, tuna, squid and vegetables was delectable.

My brother and I agreed on getting the last two dishes. Everybody had the same opinion about how good the Ebi Bacon Maki was. Shrimps, mushrooms and asparagus were wrapped in bacon and topped with a tasty sauce. I remember cooking something like this while I was in the US. But I have to admit that it does not even come close with the Ebi Bacon Maki.

Tori Chizu Maki has been our favorite. Seriously, nothing ever goes wrong with cheese. So eating a deep-fried breaded chicken fillet filled with cream cheese is truly heavenly.

We had a problem once with their inattentive staff but the waiter who attended us during our last visit really took care of our needs. He really knows the menu so he was able to answer our questions and even offered suggestions. There was no need for us to wave at him for our soda refills because he comes to our table as soon as our glasses go half-empty.

If you want delicious yet affordable Japanese food, then Tempura Japanese Grill is the place to be.
