11/23 Nomama

By She Said

Nomama by Chef Him Uy de Baron is a modern Japanese restaurant located near Tomas Morato Avenue, a popular food strip in Quezon City. 

Pig Sculpture. Our server informs us that Nomama's Ramen offerings are made with pork based broth.

Serving up Japanese food with a twist, we were excited to try out Nomama's new dishes highlighting their latest partnership with Kitayama, which supplies Wagyu beef from Cagayan de Oro and gourmet mushrooms from Marco Lobregat's Ministry of Mushrooms whose farm can be found in Lipa City, Batangas. 

It's admirable that many restaurants now are sourcing their ingredients locally, proof that Filipinos are competent in developing and providing meat products and fresh produce normally sourced from other countries.

 Pork Gyoza- classic pork and cabbage dumpling.

Soft Shell Crab Salad- crisp soft shell crab, dairy buttermilk dressing, tomato, cucumber, greens.

Mushroom Teppanyaki- shimeji, oyster, shiitake, and king mushrooms stir fried with mirin and soy sauce.  Don't let the photo fool you. This dish was flavorful and the mushrooms were meaty and oh so good!

Prawn Tempura

 Twice Cooked Pork Belly Teriyaki- free range pork belly, apples, apple wood, homemade teriyaki sauce, French beans.
Japanese Steak and Fries- miso butter flavored Kitayama flank steak,tofu fries.

We ended our Sunday dinner with some yummy Apple Gyoza- crisp apple and rum raisin filled dumplings served with yogurt foam & miso salted caramel.

How was your Sunday? : )
