99 peso sushi?! Say what?!

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.

 

 

Japanese food is <3

I think Japanese cuisine is one of the best cuisines ever! Sushi is a gift to humanity ❤ Hahaha lol. I could eat them all day everyday. I seriously love Japanese food. It is my go to comfort food. It’s my reward after days of hard work, my stress reliever, my happy pill. Last Sunday, my roommate and I decided to have dinner at one of my favorite Japanese place in Kapitolyo. We ordered some crazy maki, chicken skin karaage and kani salad. We spent around 355php. Very affordable right? Their food is really great that’s why I always go back. And the servers are really nice too.

And since I posted this photo on my instagram my officemate suddenly craved for sushi. Hahaha. And so, she invited me to have dinner to another Japanese restaurant. Which is just actually across Takashi’s. Tok-yu also serves Japanese food for a very affordable price. I decided to try out their Soba. It’s my first time to eat cold noodles. Can you believe this is just 135php?! Yaaaas. Hahaha. It was weird in a good way. I swear I’ll never get tired of eating Japanese food!

We can never get enough of Jap food. This is our go-to-happy-food. We went to gastropark last Thursday and as soon as we saw the stall of Jap food we knew we had to order from it. Hahaha. Here’s some crazy maki and tempura maki. It’s funny cos while walking we were contemplating whether to eat rice or not but we ended up eating maki’s… Hahaha.

I was not able to take a photo anymore but last night I had Jap food for dinner. Kani Salad and 8pcs of Crazy Maki. I ate em all by myself. I will never regret spending too much money on food. Lol
