My apologies for the almost-none blog activity for the month of September. As I’ve mentioned in my previous entry, I’m currently in a transition phase (and until today I still am) at work and the adjustments I’m dealing with are a bit challenging. My other lives are sort of being compromised I admit (which I don’t like) but I’m trying my hardest to get the hang of it all so I can finally go back to being the superwoman that I am. My friends are missing me already!! And the kettlebells at the gym. Huhu!

Thankfully two Saturdays ago, I managed to squeeze in a couple of hours to my busy schedule. I was invited to one of the many Zomato Foodie Meet Ups, and I had fun! The meet up destination was Banzai: The Great Teppanyaki Theater in Seaside Boulevard, SM Mall of Asia.

Before I give you a virtual tour of Banzai, let me introduce Zomato first! It is an online source of anything food — a community, wherein foodies give their ratings and reviews which can be accessed by anyone, making it a naturally reliable library of restaurants in the metro! I personally find it very useful because it’s no secret that Ian and I love to scout different food spots to try, and it’s always been the feedback at Zomato that helps us decide where to go! It’s cool because the budget is also indicated on the reviews so it’s really a big help. Zomato can be accessed via web and also through applications which are available both on the Play Store and the App Store! So convenient!

The area was big enough to accommodate a community! Lol

We were introduced to Ms. Leah Estrada, Banzai’s brand manager. She shared that it was called “The Great Teppanyaki Theater” because it features chefs who puts up fire cooking shows and knife exhibitions. They also have 3D wall arts which make you feel the Japanese authenticity more, perfect for picture takings! I wasn’t able to take photos of the walls though, how ironic!

Now onto the food.. Brace yourselves for there’s going to be some serious photo dump ahead!

Of course, the most anticipated section is the sushi-sashimi-teppanyaki-teriyaki area! Gosh I can go back and forth and still won’t get tired of these!

More food..

And then more food!!!

Here are some of the side dishes, plus desserts!

These photos do not give justice to the real thing!! I haven’t captured everything, but I’m sure these made you hungry!

Banzai has raised my standard for Japanese food!! I’d definitely go back to indulge on more sushis and tempuras!
