Dinner at Akakage Japanese Restaurant

Just last month, Akakage Japanese Restaurant opened its doors to the public. They offer Japanese food such as ramen, sushi, maki, curry, bento meals, you name it.  I always pass by this resto every day whenever I drop off/pick up my son from his school along Elizalde Street.  My husband and I just love Japanese food, especially ramen, and so we went there to check it out.


The bamboo theme of their resto reminded me of those taberna places (beer houses) in Batangas when we were still residing there because they have a very similar exterior design.


I really liked that curtain with the Japanese art.

 Father and son. 

 Clean tables and chairs. Decent atmosphere.
I thought the resto was not very attractive to families w/ kids because of the dim lights,
but when we arrived at around 8PM, we were surprised to see 2 big families dining in.


 Drinks were served first. Just ordered regular Coke and Sprite in can. 
(Php 42 each)

Unagi (Eel) Maki (Php150) 
Couldn't taste the Unagi that much, but the maki was okay.

Shoyu Gomuko Ramen (Php 180)
My husband ordered this one and he said it was so-so.
He also said it's a little bit oily, too. He still prefers Kenji Tei's Gomuko Sho Ramen.

Shoyu Chasu Ramen (Php 180) 
Like my husband, I find this ramen quite ordinary. It's not something you would come back for more. What I only liked about it is it has plenty of pork slices and it's enough to make you full, but it lacks the authentic flavor and the pork slices were not soft and tender enough for me. 


Well, overall, the food was okay. I won't judge the whole menu based on what we just ordered because they offer lots of other food variants.  What I like about this restaurant is they're open until 12 midnight and they offer beer! It's a good place to relax, drink beer, and enjoy some Japanese food. Maybe next time we come back here, we'll try some of their rice meals.

Below are the pics of their menu. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to capture their beverages section. I also apologize for the quality of the pics, but I did the best I can to get pictures of their menu.
