9 Unli Fusion Dishes From Hodai Restaurant To Fill Your Hungry Tummy

1:10:00 AM

Hodai means "Unlimited or Unli" and by that Hodai Restaurant offers its visitors nine (9) different fusion dishes to go crazy about and fill that hungry tummy. It's a new restaurant located in one of the residential but busy section of West Triangle. To be exact the restaurant is in Examiner Street, West Triangle, Quezon City. Just a few walks away from West Avenue.


If you're familiar with the place you'll eventually know that the place is one of the many residential residences in Quezon City that have big cuts of lands. More space than the current house and lots in the metro.  Hodai Restaurant rented the place from the owner and gladly they were able to maintain the house's original identity. Some of the prominent features of the house that you'll eventually notice that it is an old house is the elevated received area or sala, the half-level of elevation from the kitchen or CR, and the most interesting part is the stars which are considered to an antique stair already. These kinds of houses are built int he late 50s or early 60s.

 
What made me visit this place? Well, they have this interesting 100 Days Anniversary Promo with 40% off. Their Silver and Gold Sets are off with that 40%, from Php499 to Php299 and from Php599 to Php359, respectively. Value for money and satisfaction for the tummy.

So, if you'll be planning to visit Hodai here are my recommended 9 Unli Fusion Dishes review for you. I just so happen had a great time dining at Hodai. Take note that their dishes are fusion so don't expect something of your usual flavor.


Pork Tonkatsu - if you're familiar with the Japanese dish Pork Tonkatsu it means pork cutlet that is smeared with bread crumbs, deep-fried and served with Japanese Worcestershire sauce, rice, and vegetable that is mainly cabbage. The Hodai version is the same, though, it is a bit thinner slices, perhaps to make it more easily chop and munched.  


Chicken Karaage - the Karaage is simply described as "fry". So whatever it is, whether chicken, pork or anything it is just one thing... it is fried. So, with the served Hodai version, I find it interesting as it is chopped just right for munching. I think other than having it as a dish, it is also good to pair with beer or sake.



Seafood Pasta - This one is a little bit confusing for me. At first, I thought it was ramen but it was not and I find it a little bit interesting because of the mussels on top fo the pasta (which I thought ramen noodles). But then again after tasting the flavor I really savor the flavor. It's much much creamier that I think I might go back and try a bowl if I can finish it in just one sitting.


Kani Salad - One of the appetizers that are really good and one of my favorites. Mostly cabbage mixed with crab meat strips some flavorful sauce (which I don't have any idea about the mixture of the sauce).



Assorted Sushi - Of course Japanese dish wouldn't be complete without the sushi and maki rolls being taken by the other customers. Sometimes it's really hard to maintain establishments like this.


Spicy Barbeque in Chile Sauce - This specific dish is not surprising enough for others, I'm not sure how it is called or is it Filipino or Japanese.

Tempura - yes, that crunchy coating that covers the sweet and tasty meat of shrimps. I really love it very much and if only I was still young that unlimited serving of Tempura would be great.


Steamed Tofu - if you're into being a healthy buff, well, some of the dishes offered by Hodai isn't for you but there are two that you enjoy and one of them is the steamed tofu. It may be bland at first but once you taste the flavor you'll definitely enjoy it very much.


Fish Teriyaki - the Teriyaki according to google dictionary means any fish or meat marinated in soy sauce and grilled. Basically, it is a grilled dish and for this instance, it is a fish, which I really enjoyed the flavor. I'm not really sure if it is a Fish Teriyaki but it's more likely of a Karaage but anyway since it is a fusion restaurant anything can be possible.

Ms. Sam (one of the owner)

So, there you go my nine (9) reasons for you to dine it at Hodai. The nine (9) dishes that will truly fill you up. Enjoy your dine at Hodai.

I'll be coming back here very very soon!

Yoshinoya Gyudon Eating Contest on It’s 4th Year

9:40:00 AM



This is actually my second year to cover the Yoshinoya Gyudon Eating Contest. Last year was my first which I was able to witness the winner Douglas James Candano, not actually just eat but gobbled up more than 6 bowls of gyudon. Also one of the bloggers, Florencio Jusay, Jr. won in the media category. It was indeed a day of gyudon. Imagine the look of these contestants eyeing to finish more bowls of gyudon than the other and also imagine the number of gyudon that Yoshinoya have to prepare. Well, it’s more than imagine but it happened last year.
So this year, for the last several weeks of getting qualifiers from different branches of Yoshinoya, they finally completed the list of individuals eager and hungry to take on the challenge and finish a number of gyudon. As Yoshinoya’s Gyudon Eating Contest marks its 4th year, many hungry Filipinos are in to test their mettle to gastronomic challenges. If Coney Island in New York, USA has the world-famous Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest, then the Philippines definitely has Yoshinoya. And just like in the previous editions, the Yoshinoya Gyudon Eating Contest promises to be nothing short of excitement.

Kwento Ni Toto, with the help of our trusted correspondent Justin, was able to get the details about the blessing ceremony happened last September 27, 2013 in one of the branches of Yoshinoya.  For this particular branch, it is in Upper Ground Level of Building A in SM Megamall.

This specific branch was first opened on April 23, 2003.  Then the dining area was renovated in November 2009.   Until recently the whole store was renovated and redesigned in order to top with the latest trends in design.  The store was upgraded into a more convenient, eye catching, and warmth ambiance for an exquisite dining experience.
