Ippon Yari Don Jose Sta. Rosa

[2018-11-20] Ippon Yari is the sixth restaurant of a six restaurant food crawl of Tagaytay and Sta. Rosa. By this time, we have gone and eaten at 5 other restaurants so Ippon Yari is a bit disadvantaged. It is normally more difficult to please people who are not hungry compared to those who are.

Food served – I hope serving food on succeeding food crawls/meetups be done similar to this. There is a set of food/drinks used for photos and there is a ‘sampler set’ served to each participant that includes all food (and drinks if multiple types/variants) in small size enough to have a good taste. This enables all participants to have a taste of all food/drinks served and eat it while still hot/peak of goodness/freshness

My top three favorites :

Seafood and vegetable ramen – I am not entirely sure why I like this the most among the food served. It is not the most savory/flavorful among the food served but it somehow ‘hits the spot’. I know I like noodles and ramen with soup. The noodles were cooked just right. The soup’s flavor is quite mild and subtle allowing you to be able to taste the other ingredients like the pork/shrimp/squid/etc.

Pork Katsu Curry – If you like strong flavors, you’ll like this one too. The pork is crispy on the outside and tender/moist on the inside.

Ebi Tempura – The coating was soft and crispy. The flavor is very mild and really matches the sauce.

The rest of the food served were all ok too.

And I also like the Green Tea Mochi Ice Cream – not too sweet so a nice finish to a good meal
