Before Mr. A (aka husband) dropped me off in SMX for an office event, we made a stop over in Blue Bay Walk right before SM MOA. It’s a newly developed area with a lot of restaurants to choose from (Project Pie, UCC, Crisostomo – this one is still closed though); I’m not sure if they have shops because we didn’t go around anymore.
We were supposed to walk around a bit but I think Mr. A. was sold to the idea of ramen even before we got out of the car so we had dinner at Mitsuyado Sei-Men. They had nice interiors which would make you think you’re in the streets of Tokyo. Here’s a picture of their facade and a couple shots inside. Don’t be deceived by the windows at the top; they’re just decor and they are not function rooms that can be reserved.
We ordered Gyoza and Char Siu Pao to accompany our noodles. I’ve had a few Gyozas before and this one I didn’t overly like but it was ok; the dipping sauce was a bit bland for me. The Char Siu Pao however was a hit; the pork was juicy, tasty and tender. I didn’t have a hard time biting into it and worrying about eating the entire slice of pork in one go.
For some reason, we both wanted spicy so Mr. A. ordered a regular Tan Tan Ramen while I had a regular Shiru-nashi Tan Tan Men (or Dry Tan Tan Men). I wasn’t able to finish my Dry Tan Tan Men though because I was already full but it was good and I was more than happy to take it home. 🙂 I had a spoonful of the ramen soup and it was tasty with enough bite; I don’t know if I could finish a whole bowl by myself though. We had a nice satisfying dinner and Mr. A. was more than happy to wait until our office event was done before we headed home.
