Cafe Sweet Inspirations / Mongolian Rice Bowls

Cafe Sweet Inspirations / Mongolian Rice Bowls

Though somewhat of a rarity these days, Mongolian all-you-can-eat rice bowls was a popular concept in the 90s. The idea is to mix the different proteins, veggies, sauces and spices together to create your very own custom rice bowl concoctions.

So Ren and I decided that 2010 wasn't just going to be the Year of the Tiger. It was also going to be the Year of the Fish - the year we became pescetarians. No, we're not changing religions.

(If you've lived in the states and have Korean friends there, then you know what I mean) Since being back in Manila though, I haven't found an establishment that comes close. After dining at WooRi Jib last night, I'm happy to say that my search has officially ended.

I absolutely love Japanese food. If I had to eat just one cuisine for the rest of my life, it would have to be Japanese (with Indian a close second). When sampling a new restaurant, one of the factors which determines whether I'll be going back there or not is how good their California roll is, and let me say that the California roll at Yutaka Izakaya was very good.
