Finally made it to Kai, one of the many, many Japanese restaurants located in Greenbelt!!! I heard this place is frequented by celebs, or just about anyone who has a little bit of extra cash to spare. Apparently Kai’s head chef used to work in Nobu, so you can expect the same high-quality Japanese food served here.

Seared Tuna Sushi. Look at this beautiful piece of artwork. It may look cooked on the outside, but the inside still packs the flavor of raw tuna, like a real sushi.

We ordered the Pork Steak Miso Yaki from their Teishoku set menu, which is comprised of Miso Soup, Mixed Green Salad, Tempura, Steamed Rice, and, of course, the pork steak. Pork steak was nice and tender, and had the right balance of fat and meat. I liked the tempura as well. I also tried a little bit of the salad, and it wasn’t that bad either! Very fresh and crisp, with a hint of sweetness from the dressing.

Shabu-Shabu with US Black Angus beef. Felt a little bit indifferent about this one.

Kai has a really delectable set of desserts, but the one I had to try were the Smores!!! I’ve tried a lot of Smore-flavored treats over the years, but this is actually the first time that I get to make/eat the real thing… Although I did do a crap job of toasting that marshmallow, hehe. Nevertheless, it still came out good in the end.

It was decent, but… As I had expected, the food is a little too expensive for my taste. But hey… At least it’s still a restaurant worth visiting, in my opinion. I would love to come back and try more of their desserts/sushi, though.

Ambiance/Interior: 4/5
Staff/Service: 5/5
Food: 4/5 (taste), 5/5 (presentation)

Kai is located at Unit 1-112 Greenbelt 5, Legaspi St Legazpi Village, Makati. Tel no: (02) 757-5209. Links: Facebook
