Taisho Japanese Restaurant 

 

Taisho Japanese Restaurant is an affordable Japanese food chain located at dumoy, Davao City.. The place is small but well arranged and organized.. Its not very appealing on the outside but once you get inside the premise you’ll be mesmerized by the decorations. It feels like you are in Japan. 

 

I wasn’t really able to take good pictures since there were plenty of customers at the time. 

 

 The place is very simple and welcoming. The staff were friendly and polite to answer the quieries.. 

 

 But, I was really amazed by the food and its prices because each menu/variant only costs Php 99.00.  Unlike other Japanese restaurants that I’ve been which are much more way expensive and yet it has the same taste with Taisho Restaurant.. 

   

Although the serving is good for one person but its enough already and with just Php 99.00 you can taste everything in the menu without worrying too much of the cost. 

 

   

With our Php 500.00, we were able to order a Ramen, Katsudon, Sashimi, Maki and a dessert – Fried Mango.. 

   

  

    

If your in Davao City, don’t forget to visit at Taisho Japanese Restaurant beacause  you don’t need to be Japan to experience their cuisine.

The first taste I had with Chatime was when it opened years ago at SM Lanang Premier in Davao City. I am really not a tea fan but from the first sip I totally fall in love with its flavors. I was officially hooked and since then I always order one drink if ever I’m near the premises. The thing is they have a lot of varieties in their menu from energetic drinks, smoothies, mousse and so on. They have different choices of toppings too like pudding, pearl, grass jelly, rainbow jelly, coconut jelly, red bean & mousse. The customers also has the choice of the amount of sugar and ice they want. Here’s a sample of the Menu.

FLAVORS:

1. Chocolate Mousse

My first favorite would be the Chatime Chocolate Mousse With Pudding. It has a Real chocolatey taste. And the pudding is delicious.. (Who doesn’t like chocolate right?)

This is my second favorite. I really love this flavor. I highly recommend this flavor for kids. It’s really creamy and the strawberry does not taste like powder/instant berry. For me, this is better than the smoothie because this has lots of milk.

3. Mango Au Lait – with Mousse

I don’t like the flavor that much. For me, the fusion of the mousse and the wintermelon flavor doesn’t work out that well.

5. Matcha Mouse

This has a bitter taste. I didn’t finish the whole drink. It has some leaf granules, astringent taste and a certain smell. But this tea has a lot of benefits. However, this is really not my cup of tea.. hehehe..

6. Mango Green Tea – with Rainbow Jelly
