Ogetsu Hime is a Japanese restaurant, bearing the name of the “Food Goddess”, that specializes in sushi/sashimi, teppanyaki, and sukiyaki. They use the highest grade ingredients from Japan, flown to Manila and served, as quoted from their Facebook page. Japanese cuisine is my absolute favorite so I was ecstatic to try this restaurant! My friend and I were supposed to order the sukiyaki because it was suggested by the server, but we weren’t in the mood to eat hot pot. Instead, we opted for their à la carte dishes.
First off, we ordered Tofu Steak because it is one of my favorite food. The dish includes five breaded tofu with mushrooms, peas, and beef. The tofu was cooked very nicely, soft and smooth, and was also well-matched to the sauce of the dish. The steak was tender and just as delicious as well. Truthfully, I couldn’t stop eating it.
This dish is my favorite! It’s called Enoki Bacon Kushiyaki — skewered enoki mushroom with light teriyaki sauce. I highly recommend you to order this! Both my friend and I loved it!
Next up is the Tori Momoniku Teriyaki. I enjoyed eating this, but my friend wasn’t too fond of it. I liked how the meat was so tender and, based on my personal taste, the sweetness was just right.
We went for the classic Ebi Tempura. I don’t quite feel complete eating at a Japanese restaurant if I don’t order a basket of tempura.
We ordered two different bowls of fried rice for each of us. My friend ate the Chajan Moriawase, which means mixed fried rice (first photo). I got their beef fried rice called Gyu Chajan (second photo).
Last but not the least, a Four Seasons drink for both of us to mark the end of the meal!
By the way, we also ate Gyoza or Japanese pork dumpling, unfortunately, I forgot to take a photo of it. All I can say about the gyoza is that it tasted fairly good!
The total amount of all the food we ate was around ₱1,300+, including the drinks already. The dishes were reasonably priced, and seeing how we left the restaurant feeling very full and satisfied, it was definitely worth our money. The prices are already inclusive of VAT, and the best part of all is that they do not have service charge. However, the staffs were really attentive of our needs and were very hospitable while we choose our orders, patiently answering all of our inquiries about the menu. Thus, we felt like leaving a tip for their well-received efforts.
They also have teppanyaki and I’d really liked to try it on my next visit!
