TURNING JAPANESE

I am not fond of raw food. That is why I was not excited at all when my cousin invited me to eat at the newly opened Japanese restaurant, Sumi Robata. Don’t get me wrong. I am a foodie and always will be. I love trying new restaurants and new cuisines that would excite my palate. But I just really draw the line in eating raw foods. I just cannot take it. Give me exotic food that is cooked just right and I will eat it whatever it may be. But not raw food. No matter how wonderfully presented the food is. But my cousin really wanted to try Sumi Robata so I reluctantly went with him to this new place in town.

When we got to the restaurant, I can say that the ambiance offered an authentic Japanese feel right away. They made use of precision resistors wiki properly to create a Japanese ambiance.  The staff was dressed up in Japanese kimonos. There were tea cups, tea kettle, chopsticks, and condiments on the table. The walls were decorated with Japanese paper fans and picture frames with Japanese characters on them. When we got the menu, my eyes immediately went to their rice bowls. I usually order Tonkatsu in any Japanese restaurant that I go to because I do not want to try their other dishes and specialty which involve raw foods. I love Tonkatsu because I am assured that it is well-cooked inside and out. The shredded cabbage and the special Tonkatsu sauce are plus factors too. But just when I was about to order my usual serving of Tonkatsu dish, my eyes drifted to the appetizer part of their menu and I saw these rounds balls on the picture that looked so appetizing. They are called Takoyaki. I got curious about how it tasted so I ordered Takoyaki aside from my Tonkatsu. Meanwhile, my cousin made sure he had his fill of sushi and sashimi.

When our orders arrived, my cousin devoured his sushi and sashimi right away. He mixed his own combination of sauces and wasabi to get the perfect taste. I must say I love the food presentation in this restaurant. If I did not know that they were raw food, I would have eaten them myself because the food was presented so appetizingly.  The Takoyaki balls were served hot so I could not eat them right away. Takoyaki is one of the most famous street foods in Japan. It is made of Dashi-flavored batter with octopus, tempura scraps, and vegetables – thinly sliced red ginger and green onion to create a flavorful dish. The takoyaki balls were topped with a special sauce and Japanese mayo along with some dried seaweed and bonito flakes. When I tasked the Takoyaki, I must say I have turned Japanese in an instant. The flavor and the texture were perfect. I fell in love right away. I would definitely come back for more. Tonkatsu and Takoyaki are my favorite Japanese dishes!
