My Rating: ★★★★★
Ray treated me to a simple dinner for my 24th birthday and since we’re both fans of Japanese food, we dined at Teriyaki Boy, SM Annex North EDSA branch.
For appetizer, we ordered one of their bestsellers – Tempura Tuna Sashimi Tartare. It is a spicy mix of tuna sashimi, Japanese mayo, and tempura flakes. This sashimi dish is worth salivating for, over and over.
Tartare is a preparation of finely chopped raw meat or fish with sauces or seasonings.
Next, Tanmen Ramen. My husband is fond of eating seafood and he was delighted with this ramen dish – tiger prawn, dory, and kamaboko (fish cake) with pechay, carrot slice, sesame moyashi (bean sprouts), and boiled egg. Its Dobin soup from a teapot was satisfying enough to be eaten by itself.
Tanmen is a kind of Tokyo style ramen containing mixed seafood which has salt flavor and topped with sauteed various vegetables. Dobin is a light Japanese soup base containing seafood flavour.
Teriyaki Boy Bento for me, their specialty. For PhP 300, I enjoyed a full meal of grilled boneless chicken in teriyaki sauce, steamed rice, miso soup, kani salad, sesame moyashi, coffee jelly, and iced tea.
I couldn’t get enough of kani salad – cucumber strips & kani sticks with Japanese mayo! Yum!
A roll of gigantic proportions! A crazy medley of crabstick, fresh yellow fin tuna, flame grilled salmon, ripe mango, juicy watermelon all rolled in a bunch with ebikko and green ebikko, accented by our very own sesame dressing. – Teriyaki Boy
The description says it all. We had an enormous appetite for Teriyaki Boy’s Sumo Roll. Watermelon pieces made this sushi more refreshing to eat. The sauce was a little weird for my taste so I used soy sauce instead.
Ebikko means prawn roes (or eggs).
