Nomama :)

A couple of weeks ago, we were finally able to visit Him's new restaurant, Nomama :)

I was craving for the gyoza that he usually serves at his parties so I asked Mark if we could have dinner there.

Because the restaurant isn't officially opened yet, they only serve set menus at P750 and it's by reservation.
I didn't know this, so I wasn't able to make a reservation.

Luckily, we know the chef :)  The place was packed so we were seated at the ramen bar. This was perfect
'cause we got a good view of Him at work plus we had instant access to the food :) (phone camera only. sorry)

The first dish served was Raw Wagyu Beef with potato chips. I don't really eat raw food, but I'm glad
I tried it because it was really good :) (actually I didn't realize that it was raw while I was eating it. hehehe)

The next dish was softshell crab salad!!! I had this at the birthday party of Him's daughter and loved it so I was
really, really happy that he was serving this here too! :) Yay! I tried to steal Mark's share by reminding him that
he was allergic to crabs, but it didn't work.

Then, finally, the gyoza came out. Yay! There was pork gyoza and mushroom gyoza. My fave was the
mushroom one :)  Yum. (photo from Nomama fb page) Tried to steal Mark's food again but failed.

We were also served fish, but I forgot to take a photo of it.

For the ramen, we could choose from 3 kinds: Ox Tongue, Thai Curry or the house ramen.

Because I'm not that adventurous with food, I just ordered the house ramen called Nomama :) 
Loved the softboiled egg. Brought me back to my childhood :) We used to have softboiled egg
with our noodles too :) Yum

Mark got the Thai Green Curry Ramen with Chicken. (of course I tasted it) I loved how the chicken was cooked!
And the soup, yum. I will be ordering this the next time we're there :) Getting hungry now actually. grrr

By the time I finished my ramen, (as well as a little of Mark's ramen) I was so full. So when this Short Rib Curry
came out, I could only just manage a few bites. (love the curry sauce by the way. will have this next time with rice)

But when the dessert came out, I was surprised to find out that I still had some room for it :) hehehe. I forgot what
it's called but I remember Him telling us that It's like a Kit Kat cake or something (but not using the actual Kit Kat bars)

After dinner, we chatted with Him and stayed till the last customer was out. At this time,
I was able to admire the beautiful, industrial interiors of the place.

This clock was designed by Him :)

Love the lights and the wall details :)

And check out the sink. Nice no? the light is from a recycled car wheel. I asked him about the 3 strips of tape
just below the sink. He said that its just masking tape that's there till it gets fixed. But it looks like it belongs no?
hahaha. Yup. Bagay.

Congrats on the restaurant Him!  Will be bringing my brother here as soon as it officially opens ;)
