When Ex-Easterners Meet…and Eat!


A few evenings ago, we had the pleasure of having dinner at John&Yoko’s again… and apart from the fun exchange of stories from our ex-kingdom-based friends (read hubby’s account of it here), we were also thrilled to be introduced to some “new treats” (aka items from the menu that we do not usually order) this cool resto has to offer. 🙂

Get a load of these “yummies”…

Delectable sea urchin (uni) sushi – will definitely have an “encore” during our next visit :mrgreen:

Chicken teriyaki pizza with mango chunks and fish roe (tobiko) drizzled with Japanese mayo – delicious!

It was a pity that we didn’t have the chance to take photos of the other foodie finds we had that night – Wagyu Rice and Salmon Teriyaki Belly.  Well, there’s always a next time, right? 😉

In the meantime, we have to make do with these yummy foodie memories until we find ourselves in this part of the metro again.

A repeat favorite from our first visit – the Spider Roll – soft-shelled crab sushi  with Japanese mayo and fish roe

  1. john & yoko was the first restaurant i ate at when i arrived! my bestfriends took me there and, syempre, nilibre nila kami ni ninna. did i tell you they were my bestfriends? haha! did you enjoy their colorful iced teas? 🙂 medyo pricey lang no?

    trivia: that resto belongs to marvin agustin. he also owns Marciano’s, the italian restaurant at greenbelt 3 (masarap din! and same colorful iced teas, hehe!)

    Yes, Keith is a sucker for any blue/green-colored drinks so he did in fact try out the blue-colored iced tea 🙂 Buti na lang at nilibre din kami ng aming friend so we were spared the “pricey-ness” this time…hahaha!

    And we also heard about J&Y’s “artista” owner – and we have to hand it to him and his partners – they are doing a swell job! Thanks for the tip on Marciano’s – hope we find ourselves there soon. Hope all is well in your side of the world – take care!

    Love this place… we really need to go back there again… hmm, wonder who can treat us next time? Baka pwede nating gawing “best friends” din yung mga friends ni Meeya.

    The sea urchin was surprisingly good – it reminded me of slimy “talong” – he he he!

    Like Meeya, I was definitely attracted by the colorful iced teas. My favorite is the blue colored one.

    Hmmm…. oo nga, good idea yon! Mee, care to “intro” us? Hahaha! :mrgreen: Pero, given our luck, mukhang we have to pay our own way na the next time… 😉

    As for the sea urchin, I thankfully didn’t get the “lasang dagat” taste Vic hinted at or else I would be reluctant to order this the next time.

  3. the blue one is the dalandan iced tea, right? 🙂 the green one, calamansi? the red, mango? i did not try the sea urchin, not so adventurous like you hehe!

    re my bffs, baka hindi sila magpakilala sa inyo pag nalaman nila na magpapalibre kayo hehehe! 😀
