Yummy yummy yummy! If i were not on a diet (balanced diet and not a starvation diet… Thank God!), I would have ordered more from this restaurant. Ogetsu is the newly opened restaurant at the 5th floor of SM Aura.

Upon entering, you will these really relaxed vibe. I guess it’s because there are no high dividers between tables. You can actually see evryone in the room by just standing up. Ogetsu is known for it’s sashimi, sushi and sukiyaki. I know that you may be a bit skeptic since aren’t all Japanese known for these dishes. Anyway, it’s a bit different here since the cools really show you how they prepare the dishes. There are two huge cooking stations in the middle of the room where sushi chefs (is that what they are called?) are situated in. Although, each table has a stove, where guests can have dishes cooked. We ordered Sukiyaki and it was prepared right infront of us.






Although it may not be such a great idea to eat there when you’re really really hungry. The waitress that cooked our Sukiyaki took around 20 mins for her to finish the whole ritual. It was actually interesting to see them prepare it from scratch, but then again, we weren’t that hungry.

I ordered cold tofu for my daughter and an additional order of Chicken Teriyaki.



Overall, I had a great dining experience and a great lesson at cooking Sukiyaki (I doubt i’ll be using what I learned anytime soon though). I will visit this Japanese restaurant again soon.

See yah!


P.s. I really love the interiors. Great job at designing the place!
