Me and my co-residents were the first ones in the resto so we got some time for picture-taking and to be a bit silly. ( Yes, doctors can be a bit silly too.. No, stereotyping please.)

The exterior of the restaurant is consistent to the Japanese theme: bamboos, clean lines, orange-red-brown walls… The place has a nice ambiance but it was a bit too crowded to hold functions like this because, it was hard to squeeze yourself out to go the comfort room. The uniform of the waitresses are so cute : sexy gold kimono…
While waiting for the others, they served us, Miso soup.
This is the Japanese version of Thai’s Tom Yum Soup. But I prefer the Tom Yum Soup. This soup filled with tofu, herbs and mushroom. It has a tangy taste which I think Japanese likes but I don’t. It is a mixed of salty and bitter with a weird after-taste. And not surprisingly, I didn’t finish my bowl so did my co-residents.
We were also served platter of sushi. My favorite and the reason why I love Japanese foods.
|Heaven in a plate|
My favorite is the california maki (mango & crab) and the salmon skin sushi. I think I chow down so many of it… It enjoyed it so much. I was one happy little girl, hehe.
You get a bit of beef and mix it with some veggies. It take like your regular beef steak but it lacks the saltiness that I crave. It is quite on the bland side. A 5/10.
This is a breaded deep-fried pork. I ate a lot of pork lately, so I took one bite and left it on my plate. It was just too heavy and too much breadings plus there are no sauce in sight to help me with it.
Mango Pudding?! It didn’t look like a pudding to me, more like a colorless jello to me. To be honest, I was disappointed when I first saw it. But after tasting it, I could say, looks can be deceiving. It is quite good. It was drenched in evaporated milk and some bit of cherry on top. It melts in your mouth. A good complimentary dessert after a too much soy-sauced meal. It wasn’t too sweet, and I like the citrusy-after taste in your tongue after you swallow it.
Verdict: I am happy I gave Hamada a second chance. Me and my co-residents were so satisfied with the food especially the sushi and Ebi tempura. I will definitely come back here next time.
Hamada is located in Plazuela, near SM City. It is found in front of the fountain area of Plazuela. Definitely not hard to miss.
