It is located at Paseo De Roxas Blvd., Urdaneta Village, beside Medicard building. Be on the look out when looking for Nikko’s Baking Studio as it may seem like a house. Well it was house turned into a restaurant. Thus, the vibe and ambiance it possesses is a homey restaurant!

When we entered Nikko’s, we thought that it was just a small restaurant that can seat around 10-15 people. But as we made our way through a hallway, we were quite surprised that there was room for more diners. We loved the homey ambiance and how colorful the furniture and displays were. And since Nikko’s is known to be a baking studio as well, most of the decors were tools for baking.

It is not just the ambiance that made us feel at home. As these starters made their way to our tables, we felt that most of their dishes were homemade recipes. Both the 126 cheese sticks and the banana chips were not greasy. And the dips that came with it complemented these fried snacks really well. It was our first time to try chicharon bulaklak and it was not bad at all. It was crunchy and the vinegar made it even better. The chorizo empanada kaliskis was our favorite. From the pastry to the generous amount of filling, everything was delicious. Sweet flavor from the chorizo and the creamy texture from the cheese.

Soups

Both were creamy and full of flavors. The pumpkin carrot was more on the sweeter side and the mushroom soup gave an earthy flavor with a lot of mushroom bits. Best way to start a good meal is to have a hot and a savory soup to warm a hungry tummy.

These sandwiches are perfect for a morning or an afternoon snack. Both sandwiches were filling. The chori burger was sweet and the pandesal with butter was fluffy and tasty. The tuna melt was made creamy by the cheese and even though tuna was the star, it was not fishy at all.

The linguine pasta absorbed the sauce of the shrimp thermidor really well. The sauce had a strong mustard flavor that was more on the sweeter side. The shrimps were juicy and flavorful. As for the lucban longganisa, the angel hair pasta was a perfect partner. The pasta was coated well with the sweet and salty flavors of the longganisa.

Roast Beef
Php 380
Variety of flavors and textures from the different special dishes but all had one thing in common—comforting. As we devoured into each dish, it made us even feel more at home. Our favorites were the salpicao and the roast beef. Both beef dishes were not too salty for our own taste. And what we really liked was that the beef was cooked really well as it was tender. We enjoyed the amount of fried garlic in the salpicao dish and the creamy mashed potatoes in the roast beef dish.

Dessert

Calamansi Pie

Turtle Pie
These desserts definitely sealed the deal. The level of sweetness of all the pies and cakes were just right for us. We loved all four but our favorites were the pineapple crumble and the turtle pie. The pineapple crumble had a good blend of sweet and sour flavors, and the crumble was a hit! As for the turtle pie, since we both love chocolates, this pie got us on our first bite. Very chocolaty yet it was not overly sweet. It was creamy and smooth and the crust was chewy.
