with the family

TERSP.  Try Every Restaurant in Serendra Piazza.  The family now living in Manila, our new home is in the One Serendra condominium complex.  The complex includes a mini-mall (“Serendra Piazza”) dedicated primarily to food and drink, with 23 restaurants (plus additional dessert/snack joints).  We’re going eat our way through all the restaurants (and probably the dessert/snack joints, though not as part of TERSP).  In contrast to the negative net returns on similar projects conducted by myself in Ermite/Malate, I’m optimistic that The Fort — one of the country’s poshest neighborhoods, where food is taken seriously — won’t disappoint us. So far, so good.

Offers sushi rolls…

…mostly ready-to-go (though some can be made to order), mostly for takeout (though a couple dine-in tables are available), mostly cooked items (though a few rolls include “fresh” tuna or salmon).

Eh.  One step up from supermarket sushi.  Could be a good resource if we need to get some snacks on the fly.  Would greatly appreciate access to something like this at work for lunch, but not really at home for dinner.

  1. I’ve never seen a “tuna roll” made with, what appears to be, American tuna salad (i.e. canned tuna fish with mayo)! Interesting… how was it?

    1. canned tuna is a popular ingredient for gimbap, as part of “chamchi gimbap,” at least in korea.

      japanese-style spicy tuna sushi rolls with canned tuna + tabiko + scallion + mayo + sriracha are quite good, different than the real thing, but good in their own right, and certainly more convenient than using raw tuna….
