Last June, I visited a Japanese restaurant where the name is inspired by the location of Tagaytay. Because it is known for its cooler climate and high altitude Aozora, when translated in Japanese means “blue sky”, is deemed fit to name a restaurant in Tagaytay.
Aozora that is previously located in Domicillo Hotel, the restaurant can now be found in SVD Road and will continue to expand only in the area of Tagaytay to sustain its brand and to also be a go-to place in Tagaytay for the next coming years.
The bloggers and I able to try some of their dishes that are cooked in an authentic style by their Japanese Chef, Seiji Kamura. The ingredients are also fresh from Japan since their supplier goes back to Japan every now and then. With all that information I got, I cannot wait to share the food served to us! Please continue reading 😉
The Dragon Maki is served in a round chopping board plate that adds charm to the food. Since the nori is inside, and the rice is outside, this kind of maki is fragile yet surprisingly crunchy! I love how tasty this maki is.
The Aozora Ramen with a twist of Filipino taste of bulalo where Tagaytay is known for has a unique taste; it seems the broth is not from the beef. On the other hand, the beef that comes with it is very tender and flavorful.
Next served to us is the Chicken Teriyaki that is pleasantly smoky and the Seafood Teppanyaki that has a subtle hint of oyster sauce.
Of course, Tempura is a must and pairing it with Yasai Itame is a perfect combination!
They also serve breakfast like Omurice, served with miso soup and Sumiyaki coffee. They are open daily from 9:00 to 22:00.
From the outside, the vibe of Japanese ambiance has already taken into place because of the brown woods and the black accent of the restaurant. The price is competitive with the other Japanese restaurants I visited in the city. The serving is good for two and its taste is authentic I may say. The service is also efficient.
