Talk about the food, here at Sen-ryo, they are best known for their premium nigiri, sashimi, and kushiyaki. The Japanese chefs only make use of the the freshest ingredients all the way from Japan to ensure the utmost quality of their dishes.

Here are some dishes I tried during my visit.

Salmon Skin Salad (480Php)

Salmon Skin Salad gives you a mix of fresh and fried. The fried salmon skin and bacon bits provided a complementing crunch and flavor to the greens, tomatoes, and hard boiled egg slices.

Seared Salmon with Cheese is a delicate piece that just melts in your mouth while enjoying the smooth creamy texture and mild cheese taste.

Golden Dragon Roll (550Php)

Golden Dragon Roll is like your California Roll leveled up with unagi and tempura crumbs. Rich Japanese savor is mainly attributed to the unagi and the glaze on top that dipping it in sauce may not be necessary. I enjoyed the addition of tempura crumbs for that variety of texture.

Shogun Roll makes use of premium shrimp that on its own is already good. The sauce on top gives a kick of spice but very mild.

Tempura Udon (480Php)

Noodles are also available here at Sen-ryo such as this Tempura Udon. And they're really authentic! The clear broth is truly tasty but soothing. The udon is chewy and slippery yet very filling. A serving contains two shrimp tempura.

When Sen-ryo is brought here in the Philippines, they carefully selected the items in the original menu to fit the Filipino tastebuds and also the ingredients that can be flown from Japan. Shrimp Tempura is not part of the original menu but we Filipinos are so fond of it and so they added it. Premium quality can really be tasted in this simple dish with its soft tasty shrimp complemented by the crunchy coating. It's really different from the tempura dishes I've tried before!

Sen-ryo has the same owners as Mango Tree, Genki Sushi, Cocina Peruvia, and Kureji. It's an upscaled dining destination if you're craving for authentic premium sushi and wagyu beef, combined with a cozy elegant ambiance. Dine at their horigotatsu room to complete the experience!
