I’ve been wanting to try Ta Ke Ho Me Sushi Stand ever since I read an article about in on spot.ph. Cos’ who doesn’t love sushi right? I’m a big fan of Japanese cuisine, there’s just so much art and craft in it. I like how it is presented in such a beautiful way, how the chef’s handle each ingredients with such care and delicacy and how they really take time to create each and every dish.

Ta Ke Ho Me Sushi Stand is located in 52 Seargent Esguerra Avenue, South Triangle, Tomas Morato in Quezon City. It’s open from 11AM to 9PM. The name’s brilliant! It just literally mean take home sushi. Hahaha. My friend and I was able to try it out last Saturday, after our web design class. If you’re not familiar with the area, you can take a tricyle and ask the driver to drop you off at abs-cbn’s main building, it’s just in front of it. It’s just really a small place and there aren’t much seats inside. There are still seats outside though. Love their grafitti wall! 🙂

So here is their menu. Look at how cheap it is!! I seriously wanted to try out every single thing on their menu. I usually eat Japanese food once or twice a week. And the Japanese place I’m eating at serves 8 pcs of sushi rolls for a price of 165-200 pesos. So when I saw this 99-peso sushi rolls I got really excited and happy.

We ordered 8 pieces of their TKHM Roll, 8 pieces Migori and Kani Salad. I really loved the migori with that torched salmon. It was good, I must say. The size are not that big but the taste is there. I just kinda hated the fact that it was not rolled that tightly so sometimes the insides are falling out. I mean for a 99 peso it sure is good. You get what you pay for. The food doesn’t look crappy and is still presented beautifully. You can order their 24 and 40 pieces sushi and choose an assortment of sushi. They also serve sushirrito (sushi in burrito style), rice balls, and sashimi’s.

I’ve read a few reviews and comments on their zomato and facebook page. I’d say that most people gave them an average rating. I’d probably give it a 4 or 4.5 out of 5 stars tho. I mean what do you expect for a 99-peso sushi? You get what you pay for and to me the food was worth it for 99 pesos. It’s not as big as what they serve in your typical sushi place but it was good. Would still definitely come back to try out their other sushi’s.

 

 

Sundate

Last Sunday’s sundate with my childhood friend and his girlfriend.

Been craving for Korean food for months!! We were suppose to eat at Woori Gohyang in Matalino Street. Idk if they moved somewhere else or closed down cause it was not there anymore when we checked the place. I hope they didn’t close down because it’s my fave korean resto around the area.

We ended up eating at don day instead which is along Kalayaan Avenue. Cess and I decided to avail the unli pork + buffet for 399 and marion opted for the unli beef for 499 + buffet. The place is actually big and pretty spacious. There’s actually a variety of food to choose from. Although I do not know some of the food we were eating. They should’ve placed a name so people can identify the food. It’s like you have to get and taste it first for you to know what it is. I was kind of disappointed though because they didn’t have gimbap and ddeokbokki 😥

It was still worth it. They had kimchi, dumplings, japchae, bindaetteok (mung bean pancake), seawood soup, there’s actually 3 other kinds of soup in there but I am not familiar with the names, myeolchi bokkeum (spicy stir-fried anchovies), bulgogi and a lot more. They also had desserts and variety of fruits which I loved. Overall I’d probably give this place a rating of 8/10. I enjoyed their food but I wish there was more. Hahaha. Lol. And I wish they’d name their food.

After eating at don day we drove back to fairview. Cess had to buy something at fairview terraces and before going home we decided to drop by at jco to have some coffee and donuts. At this point I was still feeling a litte bit full but I badly wanted to have coffee. I ordered a hot jcoccino and paired it with a grean tea donut. All I did was just to eat and eat. Hahaha. That’s what I’m good at. Ohhh, and also, ruining my friends’ diet. Hahaha.
