Raintree Restaurants, the group behind the Kabila Filipino Bistro and Museum Cafe duo, brings together another pair of dining concepts, Chotto Matte and Izakaya Sensu.
Izakaya Sensu takes on a modern approach to traditional Japanese cuisine. Combining new flavours, freshness, and time-honoured techniques.
I started with a refreshing glass of their Mango Orange Yakult Smoothie (195 PHP) with frozen condensada for an extra creamy texture.
First to arrive was the Avocado Wasabi (75 PHP per 2 pieces) yasai “vegetable” sushi – a simple sushi with a mix of wasabi and a topping of fresh avocado cubes.
On to the Rolls, I had quiet a few plates to pair with my entree, though my curiosity may have gone overboard.
Spicy Tuna Roll – Tuna, Green Chili, and spicy mayonaise.
Also, I had an Ama-Ebi nigiri – fresh imported sweet shrimp with blue caviar (scampi roe) for a salty flavour that pops in your mouth, which quickly subsides.
Deep fried chicken thigh marinated in sweet and sour sauce topped with homemade tartar sauce.
