Red Kimono | Painted Red


While looking for another place in Alabang, we came across Red Kimono and Painted Red in Westgate. These two restaurants are conveniently located in a single establishment. They share the same dining area but have two separate menus.

Sa Labas...

Red Kimono | Painted Red

Inside

The Theme of the place was, as expected, a mix of Japanese and Western Designs. The place was predominantly black and red and the Interiors were modern and sophisticated. The waiters were very friendly and attentive, so attentive that they walk over to your table with just an eye contact. :p

They also have this big Red Kimono Painting (not sure) on the wall.

Red Kimono Herself

They have a loft dining area too…

High Ceiling

Red Kimono?! Hehehe...

Chopsticks

Now The Food…

I started my meal with a delicious warm Rice Tea.

Rice Tea..

Fruit Shakes P75++

Buffalo Wings 10Pcs P315++

Buffalo Wings = OK…

Gyudon P215++ 

Raw Egg

I did not like this Gyudon… The rice was not hot when it was served, that makes the raw egg taste like raw egg… well, you know what I mean…. :p

Pork Ribs Teriyaki P200++

With Fried Potato Strings

Pork Ribs = Liempo = OK.

Mixed Fried Rice P100++

Prawn Teppanyaki P315++

Chicken Teppanyaki P195++

Philly Cheese Steak Pizza P350++

Philli Pizza  

All Meat Pizza P350++

Red Onions?

Torikatsu P180++

Prawn Tempura Bento P225++

Tempurrrahh!

Yakitori P120++

Moving Forward, The Desserts!

Choco Cafe Cake P90++

Chocolate Paradise P120++

Cupcake?! Hehe!

Fried Breaded Banana (Yung Lakatan) Served with Vanilla Ice Cream and Chocolate sauce… Too bad the banana was overripe.

Banana Katsu P120++ 

Wait! Baket May Parsley? Pinaparsleyhan ba ang Desserts?! Hehehe…

May Parsely ang dessert...

Expensive!

I do not have much to say about their food. I hate to say this but the food that we tried here was So-So… It wasn’t that bad, it’s just it was not good (Hahahaha! Labo?!) – Edible. I was not able to enjoy my stay because of the food. The place was good as well as the service but the food… It really needs improvement. To think that their price is not that affordable, you could get a better tasting Japanese food for a fraction of their price elsewhere. Desserts?! So-So… sabi nga nung isa kong kasama, parang bakery lang… Hehehe! :p

To be fair, maybe they have better dishes on their menu, we just wasn’t able to try them.

I was not satisfied at all with the food… And to think you have to pay this much? Hehehe! :p

If you like Japanese Food… You may want to check out my post on TEMPURA JAPANESE GRILL or SPIRAL SOFITEL BUFFET where they serve the most amazing Sukiyaki Soup!

Thanks for Reading!

Until Next Time!

Tokyo Cafe MOA


One sunny day, I was in Mall of Asia and I passed by Tokyo Cafe and saw this display on their window…

Food Models

The food models looked so good and that made Tokyo Cafe one of my next target.

So, one lazy Saturday afternoon… Go! Go! Go!

Tokyo Cafe

Tokyo Cafe is Located inside Mall of Asia. I forgot which wing but it is located in one of the entrance on the side. As I have said, they have this display of food models in their store which makes me so excited to try them. They all looked so yummy, I just hope they taste as good as they look. So… It’s Time.

Kubyertos

Chicken and Cheese Roll P238

A chicken dish similar to cordon bleu… ham and cheese rolled inside a chicken breast and deep fried till golden brown. Crunchy on the Outside, soft and juicy on the inside… This is one of their best sellers. And Now I know Why…

Chicken and Cheese Roll P238

They serve it with a delicious potato salad on the side…

Potato Salad

So Cheesy...

Mmmmm… So Cheesy! :p

Tomato Dip

Japanese Fried Chicken P305 

Chicken and Fries

I can’t tell why this is a Japanese Fried Chicken. But even so, it still taste good. Crunchy skin outside and juicy tender chicken on the inside…

Gravy...

The gravy is ok but it is not that thick and flavorful. I ate the chicken with a Ketchup! :p

Chicken BBQ Pizza P245 

12"

Japanese Pizza? I am not sure… It looks like any other pizza out there. Thin chewy crust topped with a sweet, spicy, tangy, sauce, cheese, and chicken bits… It was surprisingly good! Still I do’t get the Japanese Part but Who cares.. It’s good! :p

Hamburg Pasta P255

Juicy Burger and GOOD Spaghetti

Mmmm...

Spaghetti And Burger Combo. The spaghetti was soo good, very meaty and flavorful. And the burger… Mmm.. so juicy! The serving is good enough for 2-3 people.

Japanese Carbonara P215 

Meaty...

This one I am not diggin’… I want my carbonara to be rich and saucy. I am not saying that this is no good… It is ok… I just don’t like it that much… Hehehe! Labo! :p

Japanese Rice... P30

Sticky Japanese Rice…

Now, the Desserts!

Desserts!

Manila Mango P115

Mango Ice Cream

Goodah!

It is a Mango Crepe, its just that instead of fillings, this one has toppings. The mango was really good, and the Big Scoop mango ice cream was so good as well add some whipped cream and chocolate syrup! Aahhhh! Soo Good!

Coffee Jelly Parfait P105

Stick-O

Mmm...

Chocolate Ice Cream, Whipped Cream, Coffee Jellies, and Stick O! Gooodd!!!

Mango Parfait P105

Mango Ice Cream

Another super good mango dessert….Mangos, Mango Ice Cream, Whipped Cream, and Mango Sauce… Waaaahhh! :p

Big Scoop Ice Creams

The restaurant uses big scoop ice creams on their desserts…

After Eating, I still don’t realize why this place is called Tokyo Cafe… Or why is it associated with Japan or Japanese cuisine when in fact most of the food on the menu are not “Authentic Japanese” Foods… Probably because it is a modern twist on a Japanese Restaurant… Modern Interiors and Global Cuisine made with a Japanese Touch! :p Anyway, as long as the food is great, it doesn’t really matter… :p

Mura Lang! :p 

Grabe Super Sarap Dito!
