Course Meal at Hide Yamamoto, City of Dreams

8:43 PM

So before 2016 has come to its end, Hubby brought me to City of Dreams as our last date of the year. Among those fancy restaurants inside, we decided to try Hide Yamamoto located at the Upper Ground Level. Hide Yamamoto is a multi-concept fine dining experience that offers different menus such as sushi, teppanyaki, robatayaki and ramen by Chef Hide Yamamotoone of 2010’s Global Award recipients.

The menu is displayed outside so guests can check first before they get inside the restaurant.

Robatayaki Counter

The place is modern and elegant at the same time. I think it is enough to accommodate as many as 40 guests. As we walked in, we were assisted promptly to our seats.

We ordered a lunch course meal for P1500 (VAT ex) and drinks. After few minutes, our first course and drinks were served.

Apple Juice - Green Salad - Mango Juice
This is the first time I tried a mix of cucumber, onion, and carrot drizzled with vinegarette and topped off with seafood flakes (I think). We both loved it. The vegetables taste fresh and the vinegarette is just right. Not too overpowering. 

Moving on to the appetizers, Hubby ordered assorted sashimi while I got myself the three kinds of appetizers since I preferred cooked meals.

(Assorted Sashimi) Salmon - Bluefin Tuna - Horse Mackerel

(Three Kinds of Appetizers) Braised Otoro - Deep Fried Fish - Soy-braised Eggplant
I am new to these and surprisingly, they all tastes good. 

For the main course, Hubby got himself his favorite - Assorted Tempura while Teppan Grilled Angus Beef for myself. Each meal comes with rice, miso soup, and pickles.

Assorted Tempura
The tempura is not covered with so much flour compared to other tempura we have tried. You can definitely taste that the shrimp is healthy and fresh. If that makes any sense lols. 

Teppan Grilled Angus Beef 
At first, I was a bit disappointed to the amount of serving and thought this won't satisfy my empty stomach. But lo and behold, it did! The miso soup is so tasty and side dishes (white onion and red bell pepper) tastes fresh and juicy. I wanted my steak to be well done and it came as expected, tender and delicious as well. Even those tiny bits of meat on the side are satisfying especially with a big chunk of rice. I finished everything on my plate and I was so damn full!!! *burp*

Match Roll with Fruits

We capped off our course meal with a delectable sweet, matcha roll with fruits. I'm not a fan of matcha (because I don't like the herbal kind of taste) but boy, you should definitely try this. I was surprised hubby also liked it despite the fact that he's not really into sweets. That's how good this matcha roll was. It has texture, the filling has the right sweetness and not much of an herbal taste. The fruits were also served fresh and taste sweet. 

Overall, it was a great experience. The staff is very attentive that he removed our plates right after we finished and served the next course promptly.  The ambiance is relaxing and perfect for meetings and family gathering. The food is excellent and indeed worth every cent.

  13. What I like about Japanese food is its authentic taste and it never fails to satisfy talaga. Pareho tayo, minsan pagka-serve ng food parang nadidisappoint ako sa amount of serving kasi feeling ko hindi ako mabubusog. Pero madalas takaw tingin ako hahaha! How I miss tempura. And ramen! Yun talaga ang una kong naiisip when it comes to Japanese cuisines :)

  14. I love restaurants that have menu outside! More restos should do this!

That's a great way to end the year.together with the one you love! ♥
