Oishi Batchoi in SM Dasmarinas is quite unique among other Japanese Restaurants. They tried to create a fusion of Filipino’s batchoy and Japanese’s Ramen. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to try the Miso Batchoi because I prefer to order their Japanese food. I’ve been there twice so I think it’s about time I make a detailed review about it.
This is not a sponsored post. This is an honest review as always.
Let’s begin with the appetizer. Whenever I visit a Japanese restaurant, I make sure to try their Kani Salad. I would say that it’s affordable (Php 155) and the serving size is just right. The mangoes are sweet and the amount of Kani sticks is ideal. The only downside is the lettuce are not that fresh and crispy.
The Crunchy Maki (Php 105) didn’t disappoint me. I can taste the salmon skin, mango, crab meat, and the crispy tanuki. I like how flavorful it is. I’ll definitely order this again.
For sides, we ordered Gyoza and Ebi Tempura. Upon ordering Gyoza, you need to choose whether you want it steamed or fried. Don’t go for the fried. I’m quite disappointed because there’s too much oil in every bite. I recommend that you stick with the steamed Gyoza. The taste is nothing special. You may order it in 4 pcs (Php 70) or 8 pcs (Php 135).
On the other hand, their Ebi Tempura tastes good. The shrimps are large. The breading is not oily. You’ll really get what you paid for. You can order 3 pcs for Php 225 and 5 pcs for Php 325.
Oishi Batchoi Menu
Oishi Batchoi is located on the 3rd level of SM Dasmarinas. It’s next to Toby’s Sport. It’s near the cinema, you can dine in there while waiting for the last full show. (Like what I did!)
Earlier this year, I went there with my grandmother. We ordered Yakisoba (Php 210), Gomoku Chahan (Php 159) and of course Kani Salad. Overall, I’m satisfied with the taste and the quantity of the serving. If you’re not a heavy eater like me, one serving is good for 2 pax.
