Japanese cuisine has continued its growth in our local scene. We Filipinos have been experiencing quite a surge of different restaurants offering specific Japanese offerings. On a recent Food Crawl at Ayala’s Vertis North, I was able to indulge in Asakusa’s mouth watering Tempura.
This restaurant is named after a place in Japan which the owner frequents to. This explains why the ambiance gives a feel of authenticity. Their staff also make sure you experience dining here like no other. They were all very accommodating.
My palate had Spicy Tuna Salad first, its taste was beyond fresh, it was addictive good. It wasn’t too hot, perfect for a non spicy eater like me. This was accompanied by vegetables too, giving it a boost on nutrients, color and crisp.
What separates them from other Tempura stops? It’s their own recipe for their batter. It’s tastier and gives you a wild kick of crunch. It’s not serve too thick, given us more ‘meat’ on every bite.
