Asakusa: Home Of Tempura, Ugong

Its name is hard to remember but their Japanese creations will stay with you. While their focus is Tempura, they also have other decent offerings. Price is on the high side but well compensated.

We got a number of their signature Tempura sets. Batter was thin enough and tasty in itself but could have been better with less grease. Hmmm how about am air fried version?

We got the Geisha set (mushrooms and vegetable mix), Seafood Catch (various seafood) and Shogun Set (tiger prawns). You can have these with rice but I suggest have it with cold soba (add Php 59). Tiger prawns was felt and its easily their prized pick. They also offer the traditional tempura sauce and their own Asakusa which is similar to teriyaki.

Also had Salmon Salad. My friend enjoyed it tremendously but I stayed away because of its overwhelming dose of wasabi mayo. I think it should have lesser of that dressing to highlight the wonder of salmon sashimi.

Tuna Maki just had too much rice. It seems 75% of it is carbs and this makes your big bite like swallowing a spoonful of gohan. The touch of tempura crumbs though was a great idea.
