Kimono Ken

I was having some really mean sushi carvings a few weeks back.  Maybe my stomach also knew it was nearing Holy Week and decided that a few meatless days were in order.  Whatever the reason, I just knew I had to have some fast!

Good thing there was a Kimono Ken branch near our place.

A serving of their Sushi Moriawase (Php380) sure did hit the spot!

But since the Little One recently discovered a love for sushi rice and tamago (sweet Japanese egg), I now find myself having to begrudgingly share my plate with her (don't worry, as she is only allowed the cooked makis and sushi.  Never the raw ones.  Not yet anyway); hence the need for us to order another dish.

We went with their sweet and savoury Sukiyaki (Php330) which was good enough for 2 adults (the Husband and I) plus the Little One to share.

Another noodle dish, this time for only the Husband to devour, an order of Yaki-Udon (Php220) to complete our lunch.


Sauteed thick noodles with pork and vegetables.  The Husband savoured every bite.

Everything was really good until, that is, we took a sip of our Kimono Ken's Special drink (Php75).  A blend of various fresh fruit juices, it was sweet with a slightly unusual, slimy texture (I think it was the guava portion that did it.)

I believe it's more for an acquired taste as we saw almost all the tables with at least a glass of this.  Guess we need to get used to it more.

Regardless, we still had a great meal.  Kudos, too, to the attentive staff.

  1. I'm in love with Kimono Ken! The best Jap resto for me :)

  2. Seems like your Little One is following your steps when it comes to eating. :-)

    1. It's been a long time coming na rin. She always sees me having sushi kasi (lalo na when in Singapore. Dami kasing cheap sushi dun na masarap din). And she's been pestering me since she was 1 to try it. E Hindi naman pwede. I read somewhere that kids can try sashimi or any raw sushi by 6 or 7 years old pa. But at least, she can have cooked sushi now. So ok lang. =)

    2. I'm a bad influence. Heheeh! =)

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
