After driving around, we started getting hungry again (haha blame Mark's bottomless pit of a stomach) and the sliced Parma ham that we were munching on while inside the car was just making us hungrier. We had dinner at a Japanese "home-turned-resto" named Tatsu No Ko which wasn't fancy looking at all but served affordable and good Japanese food. Now, I would consider myself quite picky and critical with this cuisine (with my love and fondness for Japan and all) so I'm glad to report that the food was really delicious. Mark liked his shrimp tendon (not in the photo 'coz we gobbled it up instantly and forgot to snap a photo of it) which was still crisp and not soggy despite the sauce coating it. I also commend them for serving us Japanese rice and not just plain 'ol rice! We can tell if its just Dinorado or what. The rice is usually a neglected element in some Japanese restaurants here in the Philippines so I'm happy this resto had round and sticky rice to go with their equally tasty dishes.
The chicken teriyaki wasn't good though. It didn't taste smoked or grilled at all. The sauce wasn't even close to tasting like a teriyaki sauce plus it had this gelatinous consistency which made us think that they just reheated it.
But I'll be forgiving since the chunks of salmon they used in their sushi were huge! And the tuna sashimi, well what can I say...it's my favorite so naturally I loved it.
It was served really cold, tasted like cheesecake, had white chocolate chunks and crispy chocolate crusted bottom. It was so heavenly. In my head I was arguing if it was cheesecake or ice cream!
