Hello everyone! How’s your 2018 been going so far? Just a week ago it was still January and now, we are already in the second month of the year. It’s time to say hello again to February, the love month. As husband and wife, we still look forward to this very special month because it’s time for us to celebrate our love for each other. We have become more conscious about celebrating Valentine’s now that we have a baby because we rarely spend alone time. Good thing every once in a while, we can leave our baby with grandma and grandpa so that we can have some quality time over movie, coffee, lunch, or dinner. In this edition of EATSplorations, we will be sharing with you about our very special Valentine’s Dinner at Fukudaya Japanese Dining in Arya Residences, BGC. Keep on reading to find out more about our Valentine’s EATSperience. Enjoy!
Fukudaya Japanese Dining in Arya Residences, BGC
Who would have thought that a Japanese restaurant like Fukudaya would be located on the ground floor of a residential building. Lucky for those who live in Arya Residences as they can just come down whenever they crave for Japanese food. Fukudaya is a casual-dining, family-friendly type of restaurant. And the moment we entered, we saw a great number of Japanese families dining, which made us really happy and excited because that is a good sign for us that they do serve really good Japanese food.
Fukudaya’s Valentine’s set menu for two!
Just in time to celebrate Valentine’s, Fukudaya Japanese Dining is launching a set menu for two for only Php 3,000. The set menu includes an appetizer bento (Marinated Cheddar in Dark Soy Sauce, Grilled Veggies with Shrimp and Tofu in Dashi Jelly, Grilled Mackerel in Sweet and Sour Radish, Sashimi, and Mixed Tempura). It also has Miso Soup, two mains – Tenderloin Steak and Pan Fried Tuna Coated in 7 kinds of Japanese Chili with Miso Butter Sauce, and Valentine’s Roll and Temari Sushi (Tuna and Salmon). And to cap things off, Fukudaya’s Valentine’s set also has of Sparkling Wine and Matcha Ice Cake. This Valentine’s special will be available from February 11 to 17 only.
In the bento box are 5 different starters that are individually prepared by the chef. Among the 5, we have 2 favorites. The Grilled Veggies with Shrimp and Tofu Dashi Jelly, savory in flavor with different textures from the ingredients. And the Grilled Mackerel in Sweet and Sour Radish, the palate-cleansing radish complemented the fresh mackerel.
Since there is an option to choose which main to have, we decided to have one beef and one tuna, so that we can try both. The tenderloin steak was indeed tender and juicy with salty and tangy flavors. While the pan fried coated tuna was made even better by the well-executed chili Miso butter. Both mains were equally tasty! Just imagine a Japanese-style surf and turf. What a wonderful win-win situation for us!
Aren’t these rolls pretty?! In line with the celebration of the month love, these heart-shaped rolls tasted really fresh with a bite from the veggies. And a little spray of their light soy sauce made our EATSperience complete.
Ending our meal on a sweet note. We fell in love with Fukudaya’s Matcha Ice Cake on our first bite! Creamy matcha ice cream on a bed of red beans, drizzled with chocolate sauce. Layers of texture and flavor in every bite. Well done, Fukudaya!
Love should be celebrated everyday, but it is also good to go on dates every once in a while to spend quality alone time with each other. Our recent date was made even special by Fukudaya. We were really happy with our EATSperience, because the food was really good and it indeed validated again that Japanese cuisine will always be a work of art. And with the price for this Valentine’s special set? It really is worth it! Planning your date for Valentine’s? Check out Fukudaya Philippines’ special set menu for two for only Php 3,000, starting February 11 until February 17. That’s it for this edition of EATSplorations, advanced Happy Valentine’s!
