Omakase Restaurant, Tomas Morato, Quezon City

My friend Kennie (one of my reliable eating partners) and I had an impromptu get together one night. She called to say we should have dinner, and that she felt like having some Japanese food. I suggested that we eat at Omakase Restaurant, which I’d heard so much about from other friends but never had the chance to visit.

Spider Maki

She was hesitant at first. She told me that she’d eaten there once, and that she was not very happy with what she had. Thankfully, Kennie was willing to give it another chance, saying that maybe she just ordered the wrong thing that one time.

She picked me up after work and off we went to the restaurant. The place was pretty packed, but we managed to get ourselves seated at a booth. We ordered the usual things- ebi tempura, fried tofu, and miso soup. Then we ordered the rolls that were to be the highlight of the meal.

The ubiquitous Ebi Tempura

The tempura, tofu, and miso soup tasted pretty much like they do in similar Japanese restaurants. So, although they were okay, they were not particularly memorable. However, Kennie and I were both very happy with the rolls that we had. She ordered the Dynamite Roll, which had some spicy scallops while I had the Spider Roll, which had soft-shell crab. I liked the slight spicy kick of the Dynamite Roll, and I thoroughly enjoyed the Spider Roll’s soft-shell crab, something I don’t get enough of.

Dynamite Roll

We polished them off in good time (along with the other things we ordered). The rolls were delicious, and Kennie and I congratulated ourselves on the success of our orders. We both repeatedly said that we were happy that we chose to go to Omakase after all.
