Don’t you sometimes get those really intense cravings for your favorite dishes from your go-to restaurants but you’re stuck at home in an area where the restos have no branch?
Doesn’t that make you long for the pre-pandemic days when you can freely wander around the metro and dine where you wish?
Well, take heart, dear foodie! Your prayers have been answered, especially if you live in the boroughs of Malate or Paranaque because a GrabKitchen has opened in your area!
You can expect the GrabKitchen in your area to greatly expand the number of excellent food options in your community, available for takeout or delivery. For true-blue foodies stuck at home, this means a wider selection of gastronomic adventures are just a few phone taps away!
Plus, we can now mix and match our favorite dishes by cross-ordering from GrabKitchen’s partner restaurants, all with just one delivery fee!
Take my fam’s totally Japanese meal today, for instance. By ordering from GrabKitchen Paranaque, I was able to grab my favorite Japanese dishes from two different restaurants: Kyoto Sushi Bake and Omakase!
Kyoto Sushi Bake
Kyoto Sushi Bake built on the sushi bake craze at the start of the pandemic and made its mark on this quarantine food trend by offering gourmet variants such as Unagi, Cream Cheese Tuna and Baked Kani with Sweet Corn.
Today, I treated the fam (especially my sushi bake-loving daughter) to a Crazy Maki Sushi Bake (Php500). This tribute to the California Maki is made with sushi rice topped with a delectable combination of sliced mango and kani finished with masago (roe), Japanese mayo, nori and crunchy tempura flakes.
It is best enjoyed with a glass of refreshing Kraver’s house-blend Iced Tea (Php59).
Since 2002, Omakase has been satisfying the tastebuds of Japanese food lovers with authentic and fusion dishes.
Its name is actually a phrase used when ordering sushi in restaurants – Omakase which means “I’ll leave it up to you” – when customers leaves the selection of food up to the chef.
Here in the metro, Omakase is the home of imaginatively crafted sushi, made by combining textures and flavors of various ingredients into a cohesively tasty dish as exemplified by my orders of Omakase Roll (Php315), made with torched salmon, crabstick and cucumber, and Dynamite Roll (Php345), made with unagi tempura and tuna.
To complete our Japanese meal, I also ordered the fam’s faves such as:
Kyuri Kani Salad (Php230)
Japanese Fried Rice (Php95 cup | Php335 bowl)
Pork Gyoza (Php230)
Beef Teppanyaki (Php445)
The fam and I absolutely love the flexibility and the sheer number of food options that GrabKitchen makes available.
Aside from Kyoto Sushi Bake and Omakase, food lovers in the South may also order from the other restaurants housed in GrabKitchen Paranaque which include: 24 Chicken, Alishan at the Alley, Army Navy, Cara Mia, La Titas MNL, El Nacho Libre, Sheikh’s Kebab, Breakfast for 2, Black Kimchi! and Dapo at Tisa.
