Shichirin Yakiniku Restaurant

About a month ago, Cris and I found ourselves looking for a place to dine in BF...which was kind of difficult considering the myriad of restaurants lining Aguirre Avenue. I hadn't been home in such a long time and it baffles me how Asian food places (Koreans mostly) seem to have suddenly sprung up.

We thought of checking out Shichirin and we were greeted by a cute waitress dressed like a cosplayer.

She's actually a lot prettier in person (my cam couldn't do justice to her in the dark). Anyway, we got so aliw at her outfit that we decided to dine here.

This girl's name plate says that she's Yuki, which is Japanese for "snow"...though I highly doubt that it's her real name.

It sort of looks like an Oriental tavern inside, hehe. But it was actually quite breezy in here.

Miso soup...that's not silk tofu, though.

The thing about these strange-looking tempura was that they actually were quite flavorful. I know tempura is not supposed to be flavorful but I liked them anyway.

I usually make my own onigiri so this was the first time I've tried these rice balls in a restaurant. They look kind of weird, but oh well!

Chicken yakiniku fun!

Hm...the food was decent and they're relatively cheap so I think we're going back to try the other items on their menu. As for the flavors, the dishes tasted somewhat fusion-ish, although I suspect that the owner is of Japanese descent.

  4. Oh yes, Conti's. BF branch pa rin ang favorite ko. But I'm not sure if Shichirin started in BF though.

  7. BF Pque? love to try this one out. i bet what draws you into this is the cosplay thing.

    this might be a little far from where i am usually prowling at so Urameshi Ya(Little Tokyo) might do just as good for me. but if i have time, i will try this one out.

  9. Yup, they were all in cosplay outfits. I have the same thoughts about Tomas Morato, I want to try out all the things they have but it's just too far. Haha!

    There's a maid cafe in Cainta I've been wanting to try as well...

  12. Yup! I was surprised, too. With so many restaurants lining Aguirre avenue these days, it's difficult to distinguish one from the other.
