I am one of those Chinese food freaks who would oftentimes prefer it than any other dishes. And that is why Japanese food I'd crave for only every now and then. However, much to my surprise, I was suddenly and intensely craving for some sashimi one day. It must have been all that soaking and swimming in salty sea water, I don't know.
There isn't much Japanese eateries here in Bohol. Even the Japanese-themed resort in Panglao Island does not serve Japanese food. The only choice for me then is Rai Rai Ken at Island City Mall. I had the Kantonramen, which was quite tasty and based on Pinoy pancit canton.
The restaurant itself is nice and comfortable, and the lights not too glaring. They did a good job on creating a very pleasant ambience.
By the way, the very first time I ate at this Japanese restaurant was about a couple of weeks prior to my having the Kantonramen. I went there for a bowl of miso and to check out their sashimi special.
However, it wasn't the ideal day for me to order for the latter, because they didn't have the seaweed; thus, they have to replace it with additional tuna. The platter was not photogenic at all. Nonetheless, the food was all right, except for the silvery thing that they didn't completely remove from the salmon. I'd most probably go back there for the ramen and yakisoba.
