Where to Eat & Grab Sushi and Sashimi in BGC

OGAWA Traditional Japanese Restaurant
Hello Beautiful!

Looks yummy right?

That feeling when you saw a delicious looking food you can’t help but have that instant craving, and you ended up phoning someone to tag along – or nope, you become spontaneous and head straight to that restaurant.

I was checking for my photos in my hard-drive when I stumbled these photos that I’ve haven’t shared with you. I realized that I’ve been to many restaurants since last year and I haven’t got time to make a blog post about it, but at least managed to capture many photos.

So tonight, I allocated some time and had a trip to foodie-memory-lane.

Am basically can eat anything, home cooked meal up to 6 courses meal, it doesn’t matter – I could eat all of those. However, I have this undeniable fascinating palate with Japanese foods. I remember when the first time I was introduced to these kind of meal by my boyfriend – and from them on, I became very fascinated to it. Yes I don’t cook – I even can’t remember the exact name of those Japanese foods, but each time I see one, I knew exactly what it is.

It’s like something that you don’t put labels on it. You have to indulge it, taste and savor it. Let you passionate foodie spirit enjoy its taste and delight, up to your satisfaction.

Yep that’s me!


OGAWA Traditional Japanese Restaurant


One of the favourite place I love to hangout is the OGAWA Traditional Japanese Restaurant, located at the 2nd Floor of The Fort, Bonifacio Global City.

This restaurant was opened two-years ago, and it became a hit.

I remember once that I had a meeting with my clients in aesthetic beauty when we indulge ourselves with these delicious foods. My favourite sushi, sashimis, maki, nigiri, yakitori, yes even natto and tempuras are in our long table, ready for our own satisfaction.

These foods looks exquisite and very savory, and I couldn’t help to feed my camera as well, LOL.

The colors and their textures are almost in perfection, and I think any Japanese food lovers would agree. Shame that we didn’t order sake to complete this meal, or we will ended up partying and forgot the meeting is all about, LOL.

What I love about this restaurant is their traditional concept that I think only few can appreciate. When you enter their restaurant, it’s like entering to the doors of the other world. It’s like travelling back in time in Japan and eat in a very traditional way. Although that day dreaming of mine sometimes got distracted with those noise coming from the next room where they are having karaoke… eventually you’ll get used to it. You see, Japanese meal is nor complete with karaoke while drinking.

I’ve noticed that they do serve variety of sake, which I would like to partake the next time I visit OGAWA.


*****

From traditional Japanese food going to a bit of high-street type of Japanese food, I’ve visited OGETSU HIME located at the top floor of SM Aura Premier.

Another spontaneous visit, after a very boring event I’ve attend hosted by BDJ (it’s about women empowerment, but sadly I wasn’t feeling empowered when I realized the list of speaker and listened to their contoured speech). I decided not to finished the conference (because if I would stay much longer I will definitely curse myself), and gladly I saw this restaurant and decided to unwind.

One of the reason why I prefer eating at Japanese restaurants is that it is a very rare occasion that they are always crowded with customers, and also the right timing. I don’t visit Japanese restaurant during peak hours, because I want to enjoy the food and not to be distracted by chatty customers, or worst crying babies around me.

Sorry Mommas but please if possible, bring your child in Japanese restaurants if they already know how to behave like adults.

Japanese restaurants like Ogetsu Hime and Ogawa are designed to relax, enjoy the food, and have your time for the diners, and it’s not designed to have noise, unless it’s a drinking session.

If you dine in a non-crowded place, you will appreciate the food a lot more, and not hurrying up (or you might choke up yourself).

I wasn’t in a huge appetite then so I satisfied my cravings with these two variants of maki and warm tea.


Ogetsu Hime, Shake Kawa Roll
Shake Kawa Roll - Fried Salmon Skin with Katsuboshi, Green and Orange Ebiko, Torched Mozarella Cheese and Teriyaki Glaze Php180.00


Ogetsu Hime, Goma Ebi Tempura Roll
Goma Ebi Tempura Roll - Ebi Tempura Rolled in Black Sesame Seeds, black Ebiko, crispy Tempura bits with roasted sesame mayonnaise and light teriyaki sauce - Php205

I was a happy lady, these simple maki pulled up my energy and aura again after a huge disappointment during the convention. Will never attend again.

And for the benefit of more foodie friends, I took a liberty of snapping these menu photos for your guide.

Check out Ogetsu Hime at SM Aura Premier and am pretty sure you’ll going to like it too. It is also a family-friendly Japanese restaurant, but am not sure if you could bring your furry babies along.

How do you enjoy your dining? Let me know your thoughts below!

    1. Ohh you must! But just we careful, and always ask them about the ingredients, and how it was prepared. They are very willing to discuss it with their customers especially for sushis and sashimis :) Because if not properly cooked or prepared, diners might get food poison.
