Review: Ooma’s modern take on Japanese cuisine

Treat yourself this payday! Enjoy a modern take on Japanese Cuisine managed by no other than The Moments Group. We are talking about Ooma.

We visited Ooma in Bonifacio High Street and we are very glad we did. This is the perfect example of an expensive restaurant which is worth your every peso.

Food, Price, Recommendation

The Eatventurers tried their Soft Shell Crab Taco-Maki (P220), Salmon Tataki (P195), and Hanger Steak (P498).

Their Soft Shell Crab Taco-Maki would stimulate your appetite. It has the perfect combination of flavors, not overpowering one another.

If these ingredients could sing, they would be in perfect harmony. The crabs they used were as fresh as possible - we felt only a very slight itchiness from the crabs.

It is best eaten using your hands. Yummm! Don't feel guilty, they use aligue mayo.

Eat it like how you will eat your traditional taco.
The next dish we tried is their Salmon Tataki. The sesame seeds were added to be crusts of the salmon. This added texture and flavor to the dish. It was interesting indeed. However, the sauce for us was a little bit too runny. It didn't stick to the dish, all the salt seemed to be washed away.

Last, but definitely not the least, was their Hanger Steak. It took a while before it was served. But, it was worth the wait.

Every bite of this dish was like heaven inside your mouth. The white truffle oil, herb oil, and ponzu butter, bind all the flavors together. The steak was cooked sous vide so you can expect all the flavors are there. We also can't get enough of their sweet potato mash. Perfect dish!

Photogenic steak!

You can request for plain rice to go with your Hanger Steak. It is free and unlimited as we think it is. Caution, however, this dish doesn't go well with rice. Better order one steak for yourself.


As expected from The Moment Group, they trained their employees well. 
Service was great. The only bad thing we can comment is that we didn't like the taste of their service water.

If you are into Japanese food or even if you are not, Ooma is still definitely a must try.
