A Must-try Japanese Restaurant! - Akira, Art of Sushi and Teppanyaki

Friday, December 05, 2014


Akira, Art of Sushi and Teppanyaki is a newly opened Japanese restaurant located at the ground floor of Alphaland, Makati Place (Alphaland in buendia, not the Alphaland in Magallanes). This branch of Akira with exquisite ambiance offers guaranteed oishiiiiii~ Japanese cuisine and the over-all look of the resto is very unique yet classy. The staffs are very kind. They also offer healthy dishes, recommended for health conscious people. Everything here is just in the right place I may say.

Another thing that makes Akira unique is their Teppanyaki. The teppanyaki chef will entertain you while he is cooking. You may also try and help chef in cooking which I tried, a memorable experience.

Food we ate: Kani and Pomelo Salad, Agedashi Tofu, Chicken Karaage, Akira Sushi Roll, Smoke Salmon and Cream Cheese Sushi Roll, Rainbow Sushi Roll,  Oyster Fry Sushi Roll,  Akira Fired Rice, Teppanyaki Set C - U.S. Tenderloin, Seafood Yakiudon, Seafood Ramen, and Ice Cream Parfait (all flavors).
Drinks: Akira Iced Tea, Red Wine and White Wine.


The place is super clean, neat and very classy including the toilet.
 
  
 
 

Appetizers: 
- Kani and Pomelo Salad (Left):  Very healthy dish and a new take to a salad using pomelo leaving a unique flavor.
- Agedashi Tofu(Right):  this tofu is very very soft that tends to melt in your tongue.
 

Pork Tonkatsu(Left) and Chicken Karaage (Right): What I love in these fried dishes is that it's not really greasy at all.
 

Sushi Rolls:
- Akira Sushi Roll  (Left)Rainbow Sushi Roll (Right)Smoke Salmon and Cream Cheese Sushi Roll  (2nd, Left), and Oyster Fry Sushi Roll  (2nd,Right): each of the sushi rolls has their own distinct flavor. I really recommend you try one of this. Tis' heaven! O:-)
  
 

Teppanyaki: 
- Set C - U.S. Tenderloin: Aside from salt and pepper, everything has butter and sake for additional flavor which also produced yummy aroma while cooking it in the teppanyaki area.

The teppanyaki sauce for the pork, beef and seafood. Isn't it amazing?!

Akira Fried Rice:
- Not your ordinary fried rice. This alone can fill your tummy already.

Seafood Yakiudon:
- I like how unique sour-y flavor is in my tongue which I find really yummy.


Seafood Ramen:
A big bowl that can fill up two-three tummies in one order. Everything is just perf.

Ice cream parfait:
- Japanese ice cream is really delicious.
 

They are also serving red, white and sparkling wines by Manny O.
