Omakase Japanese Cuisine at Molito

by - Friday, July 27, 2018

From hating everything raw to constantly craving for sashimi - that’s me! My sashimi obsession quickly developed compared to the past years, and it’s weird that I am starting to slowly unlock this love for Japanese food I never thought I had by looking for the cheapest sashimi offerings around. 

My boyfriend has been a loyal customer of Omakase (when they still had a branch at Ayala Triangle), and it’s a restaurant that’s been coming up whenever we are looking for a place serving Japanese cuisine. This time around, I decided to take his suggestion and pay his old friend a visit. 

Salmon Sashimi P250 (10 pcs)
Like I said, I’ve been constantly craving for sashimi for the past couple of weeks, so there wasn’t a doubt in my mind that I’d be having their salmon sashimi. To my surprise, they are offering a plate with 10pcs of it for only P250! Imagine my joy when I learned about it LOL! Anyways, yes, it’s cheap, but it somehow had this texture that I didn’t appreciate. It was good, but I finished that plate quite unsatisfied. 

Gyu Chisu Maki P195
I ordered the gyu chisu maki just so I’d have something else to eat in case I don’t get full from the sashimi. It’s a roll made of fried, breaded beef filled with soft cheese, sliced into 9pcs. I wasn’t very pleased with its taste since the beef was tasteless, the breading was too thick, and the cheese wasn’t even slightly melted. 

Chirashi Don P385 
Chirashi Don P385
My boyfriend ordered the chirashi don, which is a bowl of sushi rice topped with assorted raw seafood and served with miso soup. If you’re a solid fan of sashimi, then a bowl with a little bit of everything you’d want surely wouldn’t be the worst item to order. 

Omakase proved to be one of the cheapest yet fairly decent Japanese restaurants I have tried since the beginning of my sashimi obsession. It may have not been the best experience I’ve had, but it’s worth including on my list of go-to Japanese restaurants.
