Sushi Is Almost Too Pretty to Eat at This Japanese Restaurant

Key word: Almost.

( Fans of Japanese food know that the Japanese do not hold back when it comes to plating. From a bowl of ramen to a platter of sushi, each element is arranged deliberately and stylishly. In fact, the Japanese have words for different kinds of plating: Sugimori is food arranged in a cone to resemble a cedar tree, while chirashimori means in a "scattered" arrangement. All these beauty because they believe that food shouldn't just be enjoyed through taste and smell, but also through sight.

Soru Izakaya takes things a step further with their sushi creations. Their sushi rolls look amazing, from the Lava Maki, a spicy roll topped with a cascade of spicy tuna and salmon chunks, to the fresh Avocado Maki stuffed with unagi fried tempura-style plus mangoes, avocado, and cream cheese. But, the rolls also come plated with colorful and intricate designs with geometric patterns. The art is done using colored Japanese mayonnaise, which also makes for a great dipping sauce for your sushi.


Soru Izayaka has branches at Maginhawa Street, Teachers Village, Quezon City; and Burgos Circle, Bonifacio Global City.
