Soru Izakaya - Burgos Circle BGC

An izakaya is a type of gastropub in Japan that serves a variety of small, inexpensive dishes and snacks to accompany alcoholic beverages. The setting is mostly casual and is perfect for after work drinks with officemates. Soru Izakaya was influenced by the Robatayaki style of izakaya wherein customers sit around an open hearth and drink at a relaxed pace while a Teppan Chef cooks their food.

Visually, Soru Izakayawas inspired by the whimsical art style of bishoujo (pretty girl) manga, traditional Japanese art, the wild and colorful Tokyo night life, and the new wave of speakeasy cocktail bars. Soru Izakaya brings forth the taste of the New Nippon, a modern after-work gastropub, imbued with a traditional menu of our favorite Japanese eats, with a dash of contemporary flavor.

A tasteful blend of everything from filling teppan dishes, fresh sashimi and sushi plates, accustomed donburi bowls, appetizing and mouthwatering ramen noodles, to new savory yakitori combinations, modern maki roll flavors, ingenious twists with piquant taste on tempura, salmon, miso dishes and Japanese salads, smooth and delightful freshly concocted cocktails and beverages.

Enhanced by contemporary, sophisticated interior design, and graphic design reminiscent of Tokyo street art culture, Soru Izakaya completes the whole modern Japan experience by tapping into your senses and feeding your craving soul.

I got to enjoy what Soru Izakaya has to offer a few weeks ago. Their sushis are very well presented or plated. You can see that they are a work of art. It took us a lot of restraint to eat them but the hunger is real so we gave in.

I don't know if I was just not feeling well that afternoon (I caught the flu when I got home), but the sushi, however flavorful they were and super appetizing even by the looks of it didn't appeal that much to me. Plus I didn't get to try some of the other dishes as well (I only got to take photos)  especially the avocado maki. I'll probably go back or visit their Maginhawa branch and try their sushi/maki one more time. 

My favorites among all the so many dishes that we got to try that afternoon were: Udon Carbonara, that was so creamy; the Wagyu Steak because the meat was so tender and Matcha Cheesecake – I’m not really a fan of matcha but the matcha flavor in here was subtle and this was also creamy and addicting.
