Jou Nigiri Sushi Moriawase


at Yurakuen

(Diamond Hotel)

-Malate, Manila, Metro Manila, Philippines-

Try Every Restaurant in New World, Pan-Pacific, Diamond Hotels (5 of 10) (see also TERNWPPD)

Eating my way through the restaurants in the 5-star hotels within walking distance of my apartment in Manila: New World (3), Pan-Pacific (5), Diamond (2).  In contrast to the crappy food in the neighborhood, hotels ought to do better, at least in terms of quality.

Yurakuen is Japanese restaurant.

Located in the Diamond Hotel.

What a joke.  Antithetical to TERNWPPD, the ingredients were complete crap.  Though we ordered the jou set for sushi – “jou” = “superior” – none of the cuts were particularly special; even worse, freezer burn was clearly evident on some pieces of fish, while others were still chilly stiff.  I can only imagine how lousy the regular set must be.  Same poorly frozen, poorly thawed bullshit on the other dishes.  Hotel prices, food court quality.  Shameful.

If TERNWPPD had started here, this would’ve been the end of it.
