uni sashimi at nihonbashi tei

i never thought that i'd love eating sea urchin....eeewww.....yuck.....when i was 'forced' to eat 'uni' when i had dinner with friends at saisaki a few month's back, i discovered that it was delicious.....hmmmm....yumyum....since then i have enjoyed eating uni.....two nights ago we had dinner at nihonbashi tei, a japanese restaurant located along pasay road near don bosco church....naturally we ordered uni.....boy did i go crazy...their uni is so good....it's really fresh....it didn't smell 'fishy'....an order of uni sashimi is worth P180....you can also have uni sushi....one piece is worth P55.....

aside from uni, we also had pork barbeque.....the pork barbeque is delicious....grilled just right....the pork was not marinated in soy sauce i think....the taste is in the sauce that they put after grilling....one stick is worth P35....if you come to think of it, it is way cheaper than the barbeques sold in street stalls....big 'chunks' for only P35....then we also had yakisoba....their yakisoba is in no way similar to the 'instant' noodles you'll find in supermarkets....their yakisoba looks like omelet.....yup....the noodles are wrapped in scrambled egg....hmmmm....but my suggestion is not to have barbeque and yakisoba together....they almost taste alike....
the restaurant looks good....the tables are clean....the setup is okay.....as soon as you're seated they'll give you wet towels....there is one thing though that made me laugh....when we asked for refill of water, the waitress brought in a pitcher....what's funny about that?....the pitcher is made of plastic....it looks like the plastic pitcher usually offered as a prize when you win in local carnival games....as in 'perya'.....major, major 'perya'....i remember i got one when i was able to make my 25 centavo coin land in the center box in the game i call 'shoot that bentesingko in the box'.....


plastic pitcher on her right hand....i couldn't get a nice shot without getting their attention....
