Turning Japanese at Sakura Terrace (by Yamashita Ramen Group)
The Yamashita noodle house has got a new branch! \m/
Seeing we know what to expect from this new establishment, we’ll go about this feature post as another photo blog. =) Just like the rumored and famed treasures hidden by Imperial Japanese Army general here and there, there’s tasty treasures of ramen, rolls of maki, and tea to be found, this time, in the Military Cut Off area.
Although, we’re entering the summer season, monsoons and even typhoons are still coming around PAR and for a cold day, there’s nothing better to slurp and sip on than noodles swimming in a warm tasty broth as well as comforting hot tea steeping in a little ceramic teapot. (“,)
Together with our order of bowls of ramen, we got the enticing roll of salad maki. It was a great roll to eat since it wasn’t all rice … just look at the photo of it below. We were so happy dipping and munching, we were left hanging when it was all gone – we each got five pieces. (I didn’t even mind there was no calamansi squeeze in the dip)
That feeling quickly went away when our ramen orders were delivered to the table and we started sipping on the soup. We became fluid full from the delicious broth, solids satiated with the tender pieces of pork, half an egg, and golden noodles.
We didn’t realize Race ordered the same thing from the Yamashita visit. Everything about it was the same, he said, save for that it was hotter this time which he was really glad for, even when our attendant told us, these were quick to get cold at Sakura Terrace from the distance walk from kitchen to table. Mine was a fun noodle bowl with seaweeds like the ones in miyeok guk. Weee!
Now, with a taste for Japanese noodles from the Terrace, we returned a few days later. =b This time, I had my eye on the salt and sesame oil based one since I thought, there was a strange aftertaste with the soy based version I got previously. Just like being accustomed to Silver Swan soy sauce, if there’s a sudden switch to Kikkoman: It’s weird. *hee
Man, did I enjoy that bowl! We were eating in the midst of tables packed with Japanese people to boot. I never knew so many were in Baguio City! It was interesting listening to their animated (no pun intended) talk. I felt sooo in Japan, sooo Japanese. ^^,
Being pretty famished, we also got two different kinds of ‘sushi’ (as it says, on the Yamashita menu the Japanese resto was using). As simple as it was, kappa maki that only had cucumber and sesame seeds was fantastic. Sesame, my love, you never cease to amaze me. *heehaha The other roll was the ever popular California mango roll with drizzles of Kewpie Japanese mayonnaise on it. Oh, to be Japanese and to have all these delectable stuff. *sigh
Race ventured in the Combo section of the menu and got himself a sukiyaki combo. Sweet-salty, savory with cubes of soft and firm tofu (if that makes sense, take two*hihi), strips of meat that looked like washed tapa =)), egg drop, onions (bulbs and spring), He would welcome another heap of rice for this tasty dish.
X marks Sakura Terrace for good food in Baguio. Turning Japanese for their great dishes! =D
Service: It seems staff are being shuffled from this branch to the main to get some ingredients. With one attendant left for an uber busy day, service might be slow. (He still did very well on our visit when the restaurant was full though; nice going, Sir! *applause applause)
