Nommu Restobar, Metrowalk

After trying out the burgers at The Great American Burger Joint in Pasig, we headed over to Nommu in Metrowalk to try their Japanese offerings.

Nommu is a restobar that serves Japanese fusion cuisine. They also have a branch in Tomas Morato, but it wasn't until my visit with The Food Crawlers that I finally got a taste of what they have to offer. That evening, we met up with owner Natasha Reyes who had us try some of their bestsellers.

Spicy Tuna Sashimi (P225)
I COULD NOT GET ENOUGH OF THIS. It's no ordinary sashimi since the tuna is mixed with tempura flakes and Japanese mayo, which reminded me of my other favorite - Teriyaki Boy's Tempura Tuna Tartare. It could have used more tempura flakes in my opinion, but I love the generous servings of tuna in this one.
Volcano Roll (P285)
What's in it: salmon, ebiko, teriyaki sauce, cheese. It's definitely my kind of maki. As much as I love the regular california maki, I couldn't say no to this one because of all the CHEESE! Some people might consider this to be too saucy, but that's exactly what I like about it. This is one of the dishes I'm definitely coming back for at Nommu.

Crispy Chicken Teriyaki (P240)
Crispy on the outside, tender on the inside. It's a perfectly cooked plate of boneless chicken. That's all there is to it. They also have Chicken Teriyaki Donburi (P230) and the Chicken Teriyaki Bento Set available (P335) for the solo eaters out there. ;)

Garlic Saikoro Steak (P320)
Another dish that's good to share is the Garlic Saikoro Steak. It's 150 grams of U.S. beef cooked in sake topped with radish and ponzu sauce. Even though it was already cold when I tried it (I took too long taking photos as usual), the beef was still tender, and best of all, flavorful!

Uzura Bacon Yakitori (P220)
So simple yet so satisfying! These bacon-wrapped quail eggs were the most unique dish we got to try that evening. Best eaten with a drink on hand. Get twelve pieces of this for only Php 220 ;)
Aside from the food, we also got to try a couple of their cocktails, namely the Lychee Blossom Sangria and Sensei's Passionate Life Mojito. They're both available in single orders or carafe so everyone's guaranteed to have a fantastic time!
As if their prices aren't affordable enough, Nommu recently came out with their 200-peso bento boxes! Choose from the following:
Thank you so much to Natasha and Nommu for hosting us on a rainy Thursday evening! :)
Nommu is located at G/F Metrowalk Commercial Complex, Meralco Avenue, Ugong, Pasig City.
