Takashi Japanese Cuisine: Family Eats in Kapitolyo Pasig

Pasig, Metro Manila, Philippines

After trying out Breakout, all my cousins, siblings and I were so hungry.  The puzzles were fun and challenging so it drained us mentally and physically.  Since we're all from the South, the Kapitolyo area was out of our bounds for family get togethers, so everyone was excited!  My cousin suggested that we try his friend's restaurant called Takashi in Pioneer Center

With no time to argue, we all agreed.  We convoyed to the establishment.  The Pioneer Center has a big parking space and it's free too!  My cousin's friend was there to welcome us.  The chef Takashi was also introduced to us so we all had high hopes for a wonderful authentic Japanese meal

I think the place can house around 30 persons.  Our group of 18 had to be divided into  two long tables. 

My cousin ordered the appetizers and mains which we shared.  Then, we all had our own Ramen bowl.

Appetizers (Maki Rolls)
crazy maki sushi
Crazy Maki Sushi (160 php)
The family is a big fan of maki.  We ordered the Crazy Maki Sushi which was visually appealing.  It is calfironia topping topped with kani salad-crabstick with Japanese mayonnaise and roe.

devils roll
Devil's Roll (240 php)
The Devil's Roll is more to my liking.  It had breaded shrimp, lettuce, salmon, Japanese mayonnaise and spicy red sauce. 
salmon teriyaki maki sushi
Salmon Teriyaki Maki Sushi (240 php)
The Salmon Teriyaki Maki Sushi is my favorite among the appetizers.  

salmon sashimi
Salmon Sashimi (250 php)
The Salmon Sashimi was just okay.  You can already judge it by the way it looks so no need for elaboration. 
spicy salmon sashimi
Spicy Salmon Sashimi (220 php)
The Spicy Salmon Sashimi is cheaper than the Salmon Sashimi.  Perhaps, since it is chopped, it is less in serving size.  I did not find it to be spicy so this was dull for me.  

ebi tempura
Ebi Tempura 5 pcs. (280 php)
The Ebi Tempura is well-executed.  My little sister was delighted with this.

Oyakodon (190 php)
The Oyakodon seems to be over seasoned -sweet and salty for our taste.  

tonkotsu shoyu ramen
Tonkotsu Shoyu (280 php)
The Tonkotsu Shoyu failed to reach my standard.  Something just seemed off.  I just couldn't pinpoint what it was lacking.  I didn't like their noodles too.  

hokkaido miso ramen
Hokkaido Miso Ramen (280 php)
The Hokkaido Miso Ramen is their best ramen based on all our feedback.  They got it right with this one.  
spicy karaage ramen
Spicy Karaage Ramen (280 php)
The Spicy Karaage Ramen was better than the Tonkotsu Shoyu but I wouldn't pick this as long as the Hokkaido Miso Ramen is available.  The Spicy Karaage  is great for spicy lovers like me.  But, I found this difficult to finish.

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
Takashi's ramen is affordable   If craving for ramen in the area, I would definitely choose this over Ramen Cool.  I'll only order the Hokkaido Miso Ramen again.  You can't go wrong with ordering the makis for sharing too.
