Kimono Ken

It's payday lunch out! My friends and I found ourselves craving for more Japanese, and so we went to the nearest Japanese resto: Kimono Ken.

Kimono Ken has been offering delicious but affordable authentic Japanese treats for almost ten years. This has also been our place for bonding with office mates (but I'm not too keen on Japanese back then). What I like about Kimono Ken is that they have servings for sharing. :)

We ordered our favorite side dishes: Gyoza (Php 140), Kani Tempura (Php 200) along with California Maki (Php 140) and Dynamite Maki (Php 200)

For the unfamiliar, Gyoza is pan-fried Japanese dumplings while kani tempura are deep-fried crabsticks with batter. I'm sooo in love with California Maki that I can't miss it. Another must-try is the Dynamite Roll, which has spicy salmon, ebiko, unagi and cucumber. I wished we ordered more of both makis.

For our main course, we got Beef Teriyaki (Php 220) and Crunchy Chicken Teriyaki (Php 190) which goes well with Chahan (Php 65)

Beef Teriyaki is grilled beef with teriyaki sauce. I found it a little too sweet, but I liked the tenderness of the meat. Crunchy Chicken Teriyaki has sweet wine sauce that goes well with the crunchiness of the chicken. Both dishes goes well with the Chahan or Special Japanese fried rice which is good for 1-2 persons.

We weren't really planning to order dessert, but Kimono Ken has free dessert for our company, so we each got a free Coffee Jelly (worth Php 90).

Though I'm a coffee addict, I'm not really fond of coffee jelly, but I really really love ice cream. I love that they use Big Scoop ice cream. :)

Thank goodness for Kimono Ken, now I have a go-to place for my Japanese cravings without spending a fortune.

And yes, I'll keep on coming back.
