One day the family decided to eat in Teriyaki Boy Ayala. We’ve already eaten here a number of times and since my family is a lover of Japanese food we decided to give it a try again.
Teriyaki Boy Ayala used to have good food the first time it opened. Although it wasn’t the perfect Japanese Restaurant it still provided an ‘okay’ quality. So is Teriyaki Boy Ayala not that good anymore?
We ordered the Kani Chawan at first and we did like it but it kind of had a stale taste and the chawan wasn’t as nicely soft as usual.
Though we also knew that the Agedashi Tofu wasn’t that good the last time we ordered it, we ordered it again thinking it was just a mistake from the previous order. Apparently the mistake was ordering it anyway. The tofu wasn’t as delicate as it used to be and it seemed like one of those instant tofu in a pack.
The Gyudon also had a problem as its pieces were too large. We returned it and requested that it be cut into thinner strips but when they returned it the meat was still in large strips. Even the egg is no longer visible as they said that they ‘scrambled’ the egg before serving it.
My brother ordered a mango shake and found it to be okay. I like the nice long glass. Presentation does really matter to me after all 😛
Every time I go to a Japanese restaurant I don’t fail to forget my favorite Dumplings. Although the Gyoza is Japanese its origins can be traced to the Chinese 饺子 or Dumplings. I liked their Gyoza as it had the same taste as I expected it to be.
For those who like to enjoy the taste of the Tempura mixed with soup and Noodles, the Tempura Udon is delicious! I like the nice mixture of warm soup with thick noodles while you nom nom on the yummy piece of tempura. I sure won’t mind going back just for this.
The California Maki was also okay but even if this is just a fast food they should mind their presentation as we noticed that when it was served most of the Caviar on the maki is already gone as you can see in the picture.
Tuna sashimi was also okay but then again I’ve never really been a fan of Tuna Sashimi.
This goes out to all the cholesterol resistant people. Ebi Tempura!! The Ebi tempura is always a favorite of my siblings. Lemme see a raise of hands to those who hide the tails of their tempura so as to not show how many pieces they’ve eaten? 😛
Who can forget the all time favorite of a lot of people out there? Salmon Sashimi FTW!!! I love Salmon! Grilled, raw, steamed, I don’t care! It’s salmon. I’m glad it’s not the cheap kind of salmon that they served. It’s still worth recommending.
There are some orders which were not too good anymore even after having ordered it over and over again in our previous visits. For a simple Jap resto they are quite pricey. With a meal good for 7, you’re bound to spend around 2-3K php.
I would once again recommend their Tempura Udon and their house tea is not so bad too.
And to end this whole review, here are my brother and sister who helped by nomnoming the food 😛
