I had my first Genki Sushi experience while on a vacation in Singapore, and I was really excited upon hearing that there will be one in Manila. The only question on my mind, would it be the same?
Finally, its here. And the moment I walked in, I was reminiscent of the first time i stumbled into this small restaurant full of conveyor belts, rockets, booths,unlimited green tea, Ipads, and sushi.
After fumbling a bit with the iPad finally got to order and of course, it came in the form of a yellow rocket ship. Expectations were quite high for this hungry eater.
I have to say when i got the salmon sashimi, I was sort of disappointed when it was only a few slices. Although, I have to say that when I put the wonderful mix of fish, soy sauce and wasabi in my mouth. It was this familiar dance that I so missed and craved for.
Now to try something different, this time I wanted to try something else. Shrimp Garlic Butter The sushi rice was quite good, and the only thing I didn’t like about this dish was that it came in only 2 pieces when you order it.
Next on the list is the Seared Crab with Cream Cheese. This one was quite bland, so don’t order this if you’re looking for something with more flavour.
Tamago Sushi I recently just learned to like tamago, for the most part, I didn’t understand why scrambled eggs could pass off as a sushi or sashimi. Well, as a new lover of this type of egg dish. I wanted to test their version. To be honest, I liked it but I didn’t love it. To be fair though, I like the serving size.
Crispy Spicy Salmon Roll This sushi I really liked. The crunch, the fresh salmon with a kick. I would recommend this if this is your first time. It’s something I will order every time I come over.
Kani Salad Sushi This was okay, I should’ve gotten the salad itself than the sushi version. Although, it was a good amount of mayo, crab stick and cucumber. Very fresh.
Overall, Genki Sushi in Manila does not disappoint(wish they served uni though). It’s the same clean, fresh sushi on the go that I remember back in Singapore. Definitely a must-try, though remember to check your running bill before you order everything and remember that there is an additional service charge on top of that.
