Revisiting Yaku at The Podium Mall

Yaku Japanese Grill is one of the oldies at The Podium. We used to frequent this years ago but stopped when my daughter entered big school which was located on the other side of the metro. Then we're back around 2017 for a couple of times, and then the lockdowns happened. But thanking the lockdowns because we've been visiting the mall on a regular basis and has happily re-acquainted ourselves with Yaku. 

Aside from serving delicious Japanese food (fresh tasting sashimis!), Yaku is also reasonably priced. Serving porting is also good for sharing. 

Spicy Sashimi. I love this! Creamy with a crunch. A perfect starter!

Moriawase. When you crave for sashimi but can't decide what. Yum!

Salmon Bowl. Salmon sashimi on a bed of hot rice. 

Grilled Quail Eggs. We don't get to eat quail eggs because it's not always available in the grocery, so this is a treat!

Chirashi Bowl. A collection of sashimi plus rice. 

For dessert, Yaku has matcha ice-cream. Alcoholic drinks are also available.

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!

Bolzico Beef To Go via GrabFood

Since last year, when the Covid-19 pandemic took over the world and made everything stop, most people (me included) resorted to food delivery as it is safer than going to the restaurant, grocery, or market to buy food. One such favorite delivery app is GrabFood.
