Ever since I became a holder of the The Bistro Group Premiere Card, I try to frequent The Bistro Group restaurants to maximize its perks. Watami has always been my favorite about their concepts. I've been visited Watami several times within a span of a year since its opening. When I heard that it introduced new lunch sets, I just couldn't pass up the chance to check it out too.
My last lunch at Watami was at its Glorietta 1 branch. It's actually my second time to dine there. It's not as spacious as the SM Mall of Asia branch which I've shared before, but the interiors are substantially the same.
|♥ Watami Salad (350 php)|
|♥ Salmon Sashimi (225 php)|
|♥ Scallop Sashimi (395 php)|
Scallop Sashimi. I'm really glad to share that they've consistently served them with the freshest quality.
|Assorted Tempura (295 php)|
|♥ Pork & Enoki Mushroom Skewers (135 php)|
|Tokyo-Style Ramen in Shoyu Flavored Soup (380 php)|
|♥ Chicken Cutlet with Scrambled Egg Sauce with Rice (375 php)|
|♥ Roasted Mackarel with Rice (355 php)|
|♥ Black Pepper Beef with Rice in Stone Pot Set (275 php)|
|Beef Sukiyki Rice in Stone Pot Set (395 php)|
Out of all my attempts to order the complete Maccha Collection, this is the only time the three items were all available so I ceased the chance to try and compare them with each other.
|♥ Maccha Tiramisu (155 php)|
|Maccha Ice Cream with Anmistu Dumplings (135 php)|
|Maccha Parfait (195 php)|
Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
Watami is still the best Bistro Group concept for me. I really enjoy the quality for the price value. However, I still believe that they need to work on improving their service. No doubt I'm expecting that on my return. And, I'm still craving for the Maccha Tiramisu as I'm writing this. Hope they do something about that too. I really like the Lunch Set idea. Now, diners like me can choose the set up of their meals especially when they want to eat on solo serving and avail of some savings.
