Food: Yomenya Goemon


Pasta, pasta, pasta. I love pasta, especially the oil-based ones. I don’t mind eating them for three times a day, seven days a week. I feel lucky to find a good pasta house because not all pasta restaurants are good. Some failed to satisfy my cravings and I only end up disappointed and hungry again. My 2 most favorite pasta houses in the Philippines are Amici, with branches in Makati, SM Megamall and SM North Edsa and Green Tomato, with branches in Shangrila and Philamlife Tower Makati. I always order the same food in Amici which is Aglio Oglio and Mozarella Frito. Whereas in Green Tomato, I always order the Anchovy Shrimp pasta, which is an oil-based pasta topped with shrimps and anchovies. I love oil-based pasta to death, my greatest comfort food. 🙂 I attempt to make my own version at home but failed. As much as I love eating pasta, it’s not my field of expertise so I’ll just leave it to the boyfriend, anyway he’s good at it. 🙂 It’s hard to find a good pasta house here, I mean if I’m going to based it on the same standards of those two I mentioned. I’ve been to Pasta Mania but I don’t like their version of Aglio Oglio dish. I find it bland and spicy.

Then one day, my colleagues and I decided to go out for lunch and we discover this restaurant named Yomenya Goemon, a Japanese Pasta House. My search for the delicious oil-based pasta is a success. 🙂 Just like my two favorite pasta houses, I always order the same food Karasumi Dried Mullet Roe, Crab and Shrimp, which is my favorite. What I also like in this restaurant is their generous serving of pasta – di lang pampamilya pang isports pa. Haha!

Honestly, I don’t feel guilty eating a kilo of it because I really really like it. I don’t care if they’re gonna expand inside my stomach. As long as I’m happy and satisfied, I’m all good. 🙂
