As much as I want to eat excellent Sushi and Sashimi all the time, I have to limit myself as I don't want to burn more holes in my pocket. Delicious and exceptional Japanese food are reserved for special occasions or whenever we feel like we deserve a reward for working hard. *ehem*
You can just imagine how happy I was when The Bistro Group posted this in their Facebook account! That's a 50% discount off your bill if you use your Citibank credit card on all Bistro restaurants which includes TGI Friday's, Fish and Co., Bulgogi Brothers, Italianni's, Village Tavern, Modern Shanghai, Flapjacks and Watami Japanese Casual Restaurant.
The mechanics of the promo states that we have to spend a minimum of Php2500 in order to avail of the 50% discount -- perfect excuse for me to order as much Japanese food as I could possible eat, which in my vocabulary means a lot!
What we ended up ordering
|Green Citruz Yuzu - Php145.00|
|Mango Yakult - Php150.00|
I rarely order any type of beverage whenever I'm out as I prefer to drink water or if available, hot tea. But this time, DB convinced me to try Mango Yakult which according to the waitress is one of their bestsellers so we can hit the minimum amount. One sip and I knew I should have listened to my instinct because I didn't like it. It was too sour for my taste and the combination of Mango and Yakult wasn't a match made in heaven. Such a waste of money and calories if you ask me.
|Sapporo Seafood Ramen Salad - Php375.00|
Now this Sapporo Seafood Ramen Salad is one of the many things why we keep coming back to Watami. Iceberg Lettuce, Cherry Tomatoes, Hard-boiled Egg, Ramen Noodles, Shredded Crab Sticks and Shrimps drizzled with Sesame dressing -- still healthy but a yummier alternative to your usual salad!
|5 Kinds Sashimi - Php425.00|
We decided to have two orders of their 5 Kinds Sashimi because we don't feel like sharing that night. No more fighting over the last piece of Salmon! *wink*
|Sukiyaki - Php365.00|
Watami's Sukiyaki was sweet and tasty just how I like it! Been ordering this for the last couple of times we've been here and it's as delicious as it was the first time.
|Cold Soba with Tempura - Php295.00|
DB and I shared this and we both love that the Soba was cooked perfectly and they offer generous servings of Tempura. One order is good for two even if it doesn't say it on the menu.
|Deluxe Assorted Sushi - Php395.00|
Another constant order on our table is Watami's Deluxe Assorted Sushi with Ebi, Salmon and Scallops. Just by looking at it, you can really tell that you're in for a deluxe treat!
Thanks to The Bistro Group for offering the 50% discount last February! We certainly ate to our hearts and tummies' content without too much damage in our pockets. Hope to hear more promos like this in the coming months! *wink*
