Soru Izakaya brings the best of traditional and modern Japanese cuisine all in one hip place.
Both gastropub and restaurant, this is the perfect spot for those in search of Japanese alcoholic beverages or those just craving for some maki rolls.
With walls adorned in beautiful Japanese art, the place offers a creative take on all the dishes we’ve come to love.
A favorite among guests is restaurant’s most attractive and colorful offering – their signature maki dishes.
Their popular Kuro Dragon Maki (P480) made of freshwater eel, cream cheese, and asparagus is purposely arranged to resemble the mythical Japanese creature on the plate.
In addition, their maki dishes include colored mayonnaise drawn in different Japanese designs to serve as the dip.
Be sure to Instagram or Snap these edible works of art before taking your first bite as the designs tend to change. So expect your dip to look completely different in your next visit.
Best of all, the dish does not only look spectacular, it even tastes irresistibly great as well. The maki is tender, flavorful, and rolled up nicely.
The Hiroshima Maki (P290) made of salmon, fried gyoza wrapper, and spicy Soru sauce is another favorite. The crunchy gyoza wrapper adds texture to the tender maki while the spicy sauce complements the sweetness of the mayo dip. This is a definite must-try for those who enjoy spicy food.
Serving a large selection of cocktails and drinks, Soru Izakaya on top of being a Japanese restaurant is also a go-to after hours hangout place.
They offer 5 different kinds of Japanese whiskey (prices start at P3200/bottle), wine (prices start at P750), shochu (P210/shot, P1875/bottle), and sake (prices start at P280). Moreover, fans of Japanese beer can also have either Asahi (P130/bottle) or Sapporo (P170/glass).
All these drinks perfectly couple with any of their maki dishes or their skewered and grilled meals called kushiyaki. Speaking of kushiyaki, their Saikoro Wagyu Cubes (P130) is to die for.
Soru Izakaya proves that there are still new inventive ways to serve and consume Japanese food locally. If you love Japanese cuisine or just looking to feast your eyes and appetite on unique food, this is the best place to check out.
