Another Japanese Food adventure: JOHN and YOKO!

Subscribe to Passion Pride Family by Email

I haven't had my Japanese food fix in what seemed like forever so I decided to go back to JOHN and YOKO!

Armed with a hungry stomach, a tongue craving for Japanese food, and my constant foodie companion, we traveled to Makati to get our fix.

JOHN and YOKO is located at GREENBELT 5 and we arrived in the area just after the evening mass at the Greenbelt Chapel. The place was a bit full but we got seated without waiting.

Blue Iced Tea, Dalandan Flavor P108 refillable

We ordered our drinks, Blue Iced Tea which is Dalandan flavored Iced Tea. They have it in Red, Blue, and Green. Red is Raspberry I think and Green Kalamansi?

We Found Nemo P799

We were going through the menu when this platter caught the eye of my foodie companion. The We Found Nemo Platter consists of 3 orders of sashimi: Maguro, Shake, Kani and 3 orders of maki rolls: Vegas, Philadelphia, and Dynamite. Like I said, we haven't had any Japanese food in a while so we went for it!

The Maguro and Shake Sashimi did not disappoint! These are the items that can really make or break a Japanese meal for me. The platter is served with a sweet soy which I liked. I think they added pickled ginger to it. The Kani Sashimi is ok.

The Philadelphia and Dynamite Rolls are good! The only roll that we didn't especially like with the platter is the Vegas Roll. It's a cucumber roll with Chicken and a lot of cheese on top, nothing special.

Cold Soba Salad P358

I was craving for my Cold Soba noodles so we ordered the Cold Soba Salad! We had this before and it's still as good as the last time I had it, though not as cold as I would like it to be.

The order consists of Kani, Cucumber, Tamago, Tempura batter, green onions, seaweed, and nori on top of a bed of Cold Soba noodles already in it's sauce.

Total bill was at P1, 471.07 inclusive of 8% SC.

We didn't get to finish everything on the table. I think we would have been full from the We Found Nemo Platter alone! I should remind myself not to be "takaw tingin" next time and always consider my budget.

It was worth the trip and the money but I will keep it under P1, 000 or less next time :)

Here's to good food, fine wine, and great company!
