Haru Sushi Bar & Restaurant: Japanese Restaurant with Cool Memorabilia Collection (Kapitolyo Pasig)

Pasig, Metro Manila, Philippines

Whenever we would be in the Kapitolyo area, my cousins would recommend dining in Haru Susi Bar & Restaurant.  For some reason, we were not able to dine there but it sparked my mom's epicuriosity once again and we tried it one night when they had an available parking space.

The place is always full so we were quite delighted for the chance.

Upon reaching the entrance, we were told to wait a few minutes as they are still preparing our table.

We intended to have sushi by the sushi bar but it was still occupied so we decided to try that next time instead.

The atmosphere is different from all other Japanese Restaurants we've triedIf only we weren't such a shy family, I bet it would have been fun to take our photo ops by their decors.

There were Japanese memorabilia that really give it a traditional Japanese vibe.

From the parking area is a path way towards their extended area.

We passed by this room after our dinner.

There were Japanese toys which reminded us of our childhood.

Brother had some of those when we were little.  But, unfortunately, they got lost when we moved to our new home. 

Now, on with the food...
dynamite roll
Dynamite Roll (269 php)
They say, you can't dine at Haru and not have sushi so we ordered the Dynamite Roll.  True enough, this is by far one of the best Dynamite Rolls we've tried!  This is their version of the sushi roll with spicy tuna, salmon, Japanese cucumber with a coat of tobikko.  We loved this so much that we ordered 2 more of this!

crazy roll
Crazy Roll (198 php)
The Crazy Roll which is a sushi roll with kani, ripe mango, cucumber with haikara flakes and topped with kani tossed with Japanese mayonnaise.  We loved the crunch factor brought by the haikara flakes but this was outshun by the Dynamite Roll.

Sukiyaki Large (605 php)
We ordered the Sukiyaki Large which exactly serves six bowls.  Mom was amused by the little quail eggs they added on each bowlful finding them to be quite cuteWe were impressed by their Sukiyaki which was served piping hot and not too sweet.   We also enjoyed the tenderness of the meat and the silky smooth tofu.

tori shitake hasayamaki
Tori Shitake Hasayamaki (315 php)
The Tori Shitake Hasayamaki was just okay.  It didn't give us an impression of ordering it again anytime soon.

ika teppanyaki
Ika Teppanyaki (375 php)
One of mom's strict consideration when ordering a Ika Teppanyaki is that it should be easy for her to mince.  This passed!

oyster teppanyaki
Oyster Teppanyaki (248 php)
What we all loved the most among our cooked dishes is the Oyster Teppanyaki.  We could tell that it was fresh and cooked with precision to keep it delicious sea flavors locked in.

fried rice
Fried Rice (80 php)
For staple, we ordered the Fried Rice.  I normally have no say when it comes to staples but this one stands out because of the crunchy vegetables.  We all had extra rice!
Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
Haru Sushi Bar popularity has already preceded this post and I can totally understand why.  Perhaps, the only set back is its steep price compared to other restaurants in the Kapitolyo area.  But, one should also consider that its premium food quality and its Japanese cuisine justifies their pricing.  I really do hope we could go back soonest to try their sushi bar.
