I'll start this post by saying…
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY! :D
I think I've already visited all the restaurants in SM Aura Skypark (except for the ones that are about to open) except this, Ogetsu Hime, a savvy Japanese restaurant, which I've read somewhere on the Internet is proudly homegrown aka owned by some rich Filipino family. Nice to read that there are rich Filipinos in here!
PRICE RANGE: Sushi and Sashimi- starts at P200.00; Appetizer- starts at P170.00; Main Course- starts at P300.00++.
Ogetsu Hime offers regular dining and teppan dining, which totally reminds me of Kimpura, one of my favorite Japanese restaurants. Click READ MORE to know my thoughts about this restaurant!
Tuna Sashimi- It's regular tuna sashimi. Price for this dish is the same as other Japanese restaurants, but in terms of size, I find the cuts of Ogetsu Hime too small.
Cold Soba with Ebi Tempura- This is perhaps the heftiest dish I've had in this place. Size is just right to keep you full and satisfied, and I love the tangy sauce of the noodles!
Tori Momoniku Teriyaki- fried chicken thigh. There's also a chicken breast version if you're into white meat. I was really disappointed at this dish-it's 150php, but all I got were skins with very few meat, which made the whole dish very oily. It doesn't even taste any different than regular fried chicken too, and I felt that the portion I got should be priced at P80.00 only!
Gyu Ninniku Uzuyaki- US Beef Rolls with Crispy Fried Garlic. It's a saucy version of Kuretake (Another have Japanese restaurant of mine which is located in Powerplant Mall), but I was surprised to see that I got 3 pieces for the price of P360.00-so, it's like P120.00 per beef skewer. Definitely not worth the price, and I wasn't even able to taste the crispy fried garlic in the beef rolls!
Let me say that Ogetsu Hime's food is okay, but portions are way too small for the price that I wasn't able to appreciate the taste at all. Service was pretty slow too and they weren't on a soft opening when I visited, so I don't really understand why it was like that. I was not pleased with my experience, and I don't know when I'll come back.
