The 5th Taste

The 5th Taste, what's that? I only know four- sweet, salty, sour, and bitter. The 5th taste is Japanese in origin though and they call it "Umami," or pleasant savory tastes (according to Wikipedia).


Smoked Mackerel Maki. The smoked mackerel adds some "punch" to our beloved maki, staying true to its 5th taste.


Kani Salad Pizza. This is love-at-first-bite. The kani salad rests on a super thin tortilla shell. It is crunchy, pizza-ey, and literally bursting with the kani salad flavors. Thumbs up!


Deconstructed Miso Soup. A refereshingly creative twist to the miso soup. The soup is in the pot and you pour it on the soft tofu on a bed of pork floss.


Mussels Tempura. The execution is perfect and that you'll crave for more. Crunchy tempura with fresh-tasting mussels.


Jalapeno Cream Cheese Onion Tonkatsu. Anything with cream cheese is love. I haven't eaten tonkatsu for quite some time now and I'm blown away. Crunchy tonkatsu with the softest meat.



5th Taste Cheesesteak  Sandwich. This is my personal favorite. A sandwich that is not only filling but delish as well. The meat is soft and made gooey with the cheese.


Crispy Chicken Curry. It a fusion of chicken karaage and curry. Japanese curry is different from Southeast Asian curry so its not spicy. It also has rice underneath the egg. Yum!

Dine at Royal Saigon

Royal Saigon Restaurant is one of the most popular tourist choice in Ho Chi Minh City. Maybe it is also because it is located at Bui Vien, which is the tourist hub in HCMC. And it was actually my friend who wanted to eat at Royal Saigon, I just happily tagged along.



Another Day in Paradise Dynasty

Paradise Dynasty has been a family favorite since it opened its doors at S Maison Conrad in Pasay City. Although the location is far from us, the restaurant was always the first one that comes to mind when we go malling in the area. Now, it has opened branches in Podium Mall and SM Aura Premiere.


Max's Beef Salpicao and Adobo Ribs

Max's, one of the country's beloved restaurant doesn't just serve that "sarap" to the bones fried chicken but has a whole range of yummy Pinoy favorites on the menu such as kare-kare, sinigang na hipon, sizzling tofu, and others. But of course, every one is always excited when there's something new on the menu and Max's has two new dishes- Adobo Ribs and Beef Salpicao.
