It has been so long since Jie and I tried something new. Actually Tokyo Tonteki is not new at it has been at the 2nd level of Greenbelt 5 since November 2014 according to google search.

But it was new to us.SmileWe were actually just passing by the area and can’t decide what to eat. So we found ourselves trying out the place. After all, nothing can go wrong with Japanese food right? Smile

Both of us were nagpipigil so we opted for the mini sets (150g). Good thing too since a mini set was actually just enough! Imagine if we ordered the regular (200-250g) or the large set (300g)!

Jie opted for the mini Tonteki set  which came with unlimited shredded cabbage, rice and miso soup.

I actually liked to order the Tonteki as well but just so we can taste both, I decided to go with the pork belly with mixed vegetable mini set.

Between the 2, I prefer the Tonteki. The meat was so tender! The pork belly on the other hand was pure fat. I should have known given the name! I don't know smile

Even with the mini sets, we were left so full with our order. We have not even asked for a second serving of rice. I guess because we also ordered their ebi maki as appetizer. Haha!

Each mini set with unlimited cabbage, eggplant appetizer, miso soup and rice is Php 250.

I suggest you try them out at the 2nd level of Greenbelt 5. Thumbs upWinking smile

A Prayer of Hope

3:26:00 AM

In this turmoil
In the great unknown
I call upon you
Save us.

In this storm
Where no thoughts grant reprieve
I call upon you
Only one who can shield.

However great the vastness
In the great sinking sand
I call upon you
Deliver us.

You alone are the Savior
The great Deliverer
I submit all
In your great embrace.

This mind, heart and soul
Everything my hand or mind can do
I rest upon you O Lord.

Uttering a prayer of hope, faith and trust.
Everything is in your hands…
