J isn’t really a huge fan of Japanese cuisine. I guess a few bad experiences from before kind of ruined the experience for him. However, he’s been eyeing Akita for awhile now, so after our very fun trip yesterday, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to finally check the place out.
They have an ongoing promotion for three of their bestselling menu entries. The dishes, which normally cost PHP260 are now priced at PHP150. We decided to get all and added an order of their California Roll because I love California Rolls. Mother got the Miso Ramen; J got the Butakimchi Don, and I got the Butakimchimiso Ramen.
Their serving size was huge. Well considering that the regular price was PHP260, I guess the serving size was just right. But I had a hard time finishing my ramen because I was already full. The California roll was amazing. I mean, I’ve tried other California rolls from other Japanese restaurants before, and I’d say theirs is probably my favorite.
I know J has this rule of not visiting a place more than once, but honestly, I’d love to go back and try their other items, like the gyoza perhaps or the katsu don or the tempura. All in all, I’d say Akita is definitely a good place to check out, if you love Japanese food or even if you’re just curious. The staff are friendly and nice, so you won’t be intimidated. If you do decide to visit, take advantage of their promo which is running for the rest of the month. It’s worth the savings and the experience.
