Robot Bar & Lounge

One afternoon found myself and some friends over at Robot Bar & Lounge. Robot, short for Robotoyaki, is a Japanese restaurant and bar that offers a modern twist on Japanase cuisine. We chowed on some of their menu items like the Spicy Tuna Roll, which was very creamy and the heat is tolerable, which I like very much. My tolerance for spicy food isn’t really high.

They served us Tiger Prawn Tempura Popcorn -truffled prawn popcorn tossed in red bell pepper sauce-which I didn’t get try because of my love-hate relationship with prawns recently.But I’ve been told it was good.

 We also had a Sushi Sampler Platter as well as Beef Salpicao and Unagi Sushi.

But my favorite on their menu is the Soft-shelled Crab Roll that they served with Aligue Mayo. It’s quite simple but really good. It’s crispy soft-shelled crab and a very creamy aligue-mayo dipping sauce that’s so good, it’ll give you a heart attack on the spot. I’m kidding about the heart attack ofcourse, but yes, it is quite a sinful treat.

We washed it all down with tall glasses of iced tea and a signature cocktail they named Lady Gaga, which is just as cool, quirky and refreshing as it’s name sake.

Servings of the dishes we had are good for one except for the platter is which is good to share. Dishes start at PHP 100.00 for sidings, starters at Php 150.00; and main courses go up to Php1000.00.

Robot offers more in their menu aside from those we’ve tried that afternoon, like Truffled Portebello Mushroom Confit, Mesquite Smoked Duck Breast Roll, and Honey Soy marinated Chillean Sea Bass to name a few.  I’m hoping to go back there soon to try them out.
