Japanese cuisine has continued to find its way to our hearts. And with the variety of its segmentation, we can find Japanese restaurants all over the metro. Ta Ke Ho Me specializes in sushi and they offer it at an affordable price tag.
Thanks to this Zomato meet up I got to sample most of what they offer.
So if you’re craving for sushi, rice with a variety of toppings rolled for you, Ta Ke Ho Me would rather have you bring it home, thus their play of words on their name. If you wish to dine in, they have a small and humid place that is a bit cramped.
What we have are a combination of usual sushi familiar to most and some innovative ones like a deep fried version. Among the ones we had, California Maki (kani, mango and ebiko), Ta Ke Ho Me Roll (salmon, cream cheese and bonito flakes), Spicy Tuna (tuna and panko), Migori (torched salmon and cucumber miso mayo) and Dragon Ball (spicy smoked salmon, mango and togarashi), all for just Php 99 for 9 pieces, I liked most their signature one that bar has their name, Ta Ke Ho Me Roll. Its salmon was fresh and it worked so well with melted cream cheese.
If you wish to order more maybe for a party or office gathering, you can get even more value for any of the above sushi picks. Php 299 for 24 pieces and Php 499 for 40 pieces. It may take awhile to prepare though so better to call them in advance.
Now they got Wagyu sticks as well just like everyone else. Theirs has more marble of meat and fat ratio and it also retails at Php 99 per stick.
For drinks they got some imported stuff to boast. I specifically tried two, Pokka Strawberry and Melon Milk. These were sold at normal prices and weren’t bad for a canned beverage. Too bad they don’t have ice that time.
