Ok, this is just a table napkin. I did take cellphone shots of my California maki and ebi tempura, ala Manggy's and Em Dy's beautiful food pictures, but alas, I discovered that it takes some skill to make a good composition especially of food images. Or maybe it was that my hands were shaking from hunger that's why my photos were kinda blurry. ;-)
So anyway, except for the refreshing red iced tea, the food was a bit of a disappointment. It was a far cry from Saisaki's where I can eat a dozen of their shrimp tempura. And my friend Erlyn and I were racking our middle-aged brains for the name of that Japanese restaurant on Wilson St. in Greenhills, our very favorite one, where we used to binge on their buffet. Our barkada would go there at the very start of buffet time and eat very slowly, sampling all of their delicacies on display, and talk and talk and talk UNTIL closing time. The waiters would indulgently remove our numerous plates and their hooded eyes seemed to say, "Madames, we salute you. You truly are getting your money's worth."
We never did get to remember the name of that awesome Japanese place, as it had closed shop, we later found out. What a shame. Maybe it has resurrected under another name, I sure do hope, as their food was infinitely exquisite.
