If you are ever at the City of Dreams in Manila, you definitely have to try the exceptional Japanese food fare at Hide Yamamoto. Though lesser known than its more famous City of Dreams neighbor, Nobu Manila, Yamamoto’s offerings are just as celebrated. And very reasonably priced.
I recently had the occasion to sample some of their dishes and I must say I was very impressed. Though it was only a quick bite in between meetings, the little that I had left a lasting impression which I hope to expand in my next visit. Or two.
While they had a pretty good menu of fresh sushi and sashimi, teppanyaki, and robota, I opted for my go-to favorite of Ebi Tempura paired with Snow Crab and Mushroom Clay Pot Rice with Ankake Sauce. And on the side, Miso soup and Toro with Scallion Roll.
It was overall a very satisfying meal and a wonderful dining experience. From the ambience, the superb service, great food, and reasonable prices – Hide Yamamoto is certainly one hidden gem that is worth sharing with others.
