Feeling adventurous? Here's where you can try adobo sushi
Nobu is dishing out Japanese dishes with a Filipino twist!
(SPOT.ph) Adobo sushi, anyone? As far as fusions go, this one’s pretty extraordinary—but never say never, right? Especially when it comes to food! If you’re game to try it and other Japanese dishes with a unique Filipino twist, head to Nobu Manila at City of Dreams and try their Filipino-inspired Specials, available until June 30.
Nobu Sushi Specials
The adobo sushi is part of Nobu’s Sushi Specials. It's more formally known as the Whitefish Adobo Sushi Style (P390/two pieces), with whitefish marinated in vinegar, peppercorn, soy sauce and other adobo spices then topped with crunchy garlic. The Sushi Specials also include the Tuna Sisig Cut Roll (P380/eight pieces) with cooked and chilled tuna mixed with chopped red and green chili, onions, mayonnaise, and calamansi juice, before being rolled with asparagus and nori. A sushi-style take on the classic Filipino pairing of tomatoes and salted egg is the Snapper Sushi With Tomato Salsa and Salted Egg (P350/two pieces) with raw snapper, a tomato-onion salsa, and bonito-cured egg yolk.
Kurobuta & Foie Gras Sisig ‘Pica Pica’
For hot meals, Nobu plays around with the classic palabok—the Nobu Palabok (P1,240) has tiger prawns, onsen egg, and udon noodles covered with an uni palabok sauce. Another indulgent dish is the Kurobuta & Foie Gras Sisig ‘Pica Pica’ (P530/two pieces) with sous-vide pork belly, seared foie gras, chili, onion, and yuzu soy sauce.
Next time you're looking for a Filipino spread that's far from the usual, you know where to go.
