Mr. Kurosawa – Euro-Japanese Restaurant at Resorts World Manila

I got the chance to visit Mr. Kurosawa’s at Resorts World Manila.

 Mr. Kurosawa is a Euro-Japanese Restaurant created by the same people of SumoSam.

Its "new-fangled style of the interiors and exteriors such as the honeycomb windows and Victorian walls and elegant fixtures" gave Mr. Kurosawa the total Euro-Japanese experience.

With the company's continued success, 3rd year of operations (for the Eastwood branch) and 2nd year (for the Resorts World Manila branch).  They have a special treat for all their patrons. Coming March 2012, they will be introducing new items in their menu.


 Last Samurai Chicken Wings (P298)
Looking at the picture you can see how huge the chicken wings were. It comes in four so you can share it with your friends! Served hot and crunchy, they said the secret was how they deep fry the chicken and how they put the korean sweet sauce. On top, there were also peanuts which complimented the sweetness.

Tonkatsu "Pork Katsu" or Torikatsu "chicken katsu" (P288) 
*served separately
 sauce: spicy ebiko mayo, tonkatsu sauce, wasabi mayo.
sides: Japanese coleslaw salad with the choice of plain gohan or japanese fried rice. 
I'm craving for these right now!! Be adventurous in mixing the sauces together!

Fry or Ebi Katsu (P398) - 5pcs.
 sauce: Wasabi Mango Mayo
sides: Japanese coleslaw salad 
It was like eating a crunchier and tastier tempura! The shrimps were big and fresh! The sauce tasted like California-Maki

Fish Katsu (P268)
sauce: Spicy Ebiko Mayo
sides: Japanese coleslaw and Fries 
Perfectly fried Dory! It's Crispy outside and Juicy inside. When I eat dory I usually complain about its saltiness but this one is perfect =)

Shrimp Katsu or Ebi Sinju (P398) 5pcs
sauce: Chili plum sauce
sides: Japanese coleslaw and Fries
It tasted like crunchy meatballs, this will be good for kids, I taste some veggies hidden inside. =)


             Yojimbo                                    Sanjuru                           Sakura

(Regular P65-70; Large P95-100)

SANJURU or WinterMelon Milk Tea
Assam Black Tea with powdered milk and sugar syrup. 

Sakura or Strawberry Yakult Milk Tea

Strawberry iced tea with Assam black tea and yakult

Yojimbo or Matcha Milk Tea
Green tea ice cream with red beans.

My favorite was the Sanjuru. I like the strong Taste of Tea. 2nd was the strawberry, because of its strawberry ice cream taste. 3rd was the Yojimbo, just because i'm not into beans.

note: All drinks have Pearls (tapioca) 
and crytals (nata de coco)

 The Tapioca and the crystals was a plus for the drinks. They were sweet and chewy =)

Aria - cucina italiana

For the followers of Aria cucina italiana in Boracay, no need to save up for your Boracay airfare because there is a new Branch here in Manila, specifically at the East Superblock, 30th St. corner 7th St.., Bonifacio High Street Central Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.

The feel inside Aria Manila was Contemporary Modern with textured walls that reminded me of Boracay's soft and white sand. Look at the abstract paintings, they are so nice.  Similar to Picasso's pieces. =)

Aria won't be complete without their huge collection of wines and hard drinks. A perfect match for the food they were serving. 

Insalata di cocomero, rucola e pinoli (480) - Organic arugula with fresh watermelon, feta cheese and pine nuts in a balsamic vinaigrette dressing.

The combination was great though the arugula was too much for me. 

Insalata tartufata con parma ham (480) - a salad of frilled eggplant, lettuce, tomatoes, parma ham and smoked scamorza cheese tossed in a truffle dressing.

                           The parma ham is the winner in this salad. One of the best I have ever tasted.

Gran misto aria (435) - A vegetarian mix of tomatoes and mozzarella cheese, grilled bell pepper salad, eggplant mach and deep fried zuccini, served with focaccia bread.

It is a good way to start your meal. The flavors in this dish will surely tickle your taste-buds.The eggplant mash is definitely a must try!

Pasta Marinara (450) - Seafood pasta with a choice of tomato or olive oil-based sauce.

The noodles were perfectly made. You wont miss the seafood taste with the shrimp, squid and shells.

I love Aria because of their pizza. They are one of the best when it comes to making thin crust pizza. The Rucola e pinollo is one of my favorites here.

Risotto con porcini, mantecato al mascarpone (620) Risotto with porcini mushrooms whipped with mascarpone and aged parmesan cheese for double portion add: P465

Honestly, I am not a Risotto fan so I didn't enjoy this meal that much. It tasted like rice with gravy =)



               Salmone al pepe verde (650) - fresh salmon fillet served with a creamy green pepper sauce.

The Salmon fillet was cooked the way it should be. Fresh, juicy and the salmon taste was really there. The sauce was a great compliment to the meal.

Mousse ai due cioccolati (190) - Layers of white and dark chocolate mousse pastry topped with ground hazelnuts.

This mousse alone can be a reason for me to go back again and again to Aria. The mixture was perfect! Not too sweet on the chocolate and cream, and Extra sweetness from the crumbles of hazelnuts on top.
