It’s been a while since my last restaurant review! And I think I ought to start it again with one of my favorite cuisines—Japanese. Last Wednesday right before the long weekend, the Cupcake and I visited the Mind Museum before heading to Quezon City to have dinner. Originally, we were planning to dine in Chocolate Kiss near Tomas Morato but they closed early so the Cupcake suggested we try out Zipang, an authentic Japanese restaurant in Quezon City along 11th Jamboree, which he ate in with his family last Sunday.
It’s a really simple, unpretentious place run by a Japanese chef who is married to a Filipina. Once you order, you can even watch him prepare your meal in the open kitchen.
I ordered my favorite dishes—Salmon Sashimi (Php 198), Miso Soup (Php 50), and Gyu-Don (Php 295). The Cupcake ordered Tuna Sashimi (Php 198) and Nikatsu (Php 215), one of their best sellers, which consisted of deep-fried pork cutlet in soy-based sauce topped with egg. It even comes with rice, salad, and soup.
The servings are really generous and as expected, the sashimi is the kind that’s so fresh it melts in your mouth. My Gyu-Don was rich in vegetables and flavorful meat, and though the dish was too heavy for my appetite, I did my best to finish it.
It’s a great place to visit if you have a big appetite! Considering the prices, it’ll definitely leave you with a full, happy belly. It’s also really convenient for residents who live nearby!
