Salut! It’s April and the summer heat is finally here in Manila. In a way to beat the heat here, most Filipinos go swimming at the beach or at pools. I set Wednesdays for my swimming days where I exercise and beat the heat as well together with my swimming buddy/boyfriend Sunny. But this particular Wednesday evening was a bit cold and we both were shivering at the pool and even after our swim. Good thing, there was a near Japanese restaurant called Shinsen at the Hampton Garden’s Arcade and to heat ourselves, we decided to get some hot soup for dinner!
It was a quaint and cozy place, plus the servers are so polite and assistive. We chose to seat on the sushi bar so we can seat beside each other. #cheesy Hahaha! We ordered California Maki, a bowl of Spicy Miso Soup and a bowl of Seafood Udon Soup. I forget to jot down the prices, really sorry about that. But here are the photos!
We enjoyed our dinner that night. I loved the Spicy Miso it had a mild spice which is suitable for those who don’t really like spicy foods. Although, I wish they really lived up to the name of the meal. Nevertheless, it was a yummy meal. Sunny’s seafood udon soup was a bit sweet to taste but is balanced. He enjoyed his meal and finished it all up. It was well packed with seafood goodies too! The California Maki is pure joy for me, or is it I just love all California Maki. Hahaha. I hope you guys get to try Shinsen and enjoy yummy Japanese meals.
Merci beaucoup et á bientôt!
