Tsuki Japanese Dining in Sarrosa International Hotel, Kasambagan, Cebu City

If you’re in search of authentic Japanese food, then you must definitely try Tsuki’s delectable meals. At barely three months old, Tsuki Japanese Dining is currently on its soft opening. It is located on the ground floor of Sarrosa International Hotel. I’m such a sucker for Japanese food, so when I had the opportunity to try Tsuki, I was overjoyed! I can delightfully eat Japanese cuisine every day, any day.

Tsuki means “Moon” in English translation. A very fitting name to a Japanese food place as this celestial giant is ever-present in Japan’s rich culture, arts, and festivities. Tsuki Japanese Dining serves authentic Japanese food with genuine Japanese taste. The ambiance has a contemporary Japanese flair where people can get together for a drink of sake or shochu and just be merry.


The restaurant specializes in sushi and sashimi, no ramen in this joint guys. Head chef and part owner, Kazuo Sato, who hails from Osaka, is a decorated chef who has been cooking since he was 14 years old. His experiences from his travels abroad honed his skills in Japanese cooking onto the next level. You may also request for a special order if you wish to have something that’s not in their menu.


The dishes we had were so heavenly, I had a hard time forgiving myself for this gluttony trip haha! I will go through my top picks (personal favorites) first, but take note that everything in this blog post is pretty damn good.

Hakozushi Unagi, Php450
This specialty from Osaka is a must try. The eel was the most flavorful I’ve had so far. I can definitely eat everything in one sitting if only my tummy had unlimited space. This dish for me is the highlight of my day.


Osashimi Goshu Mori (assorted sashimi), Php480
This sashimi platter actually taste better than it sounds! This darling of a dish has 5 kinds of sashimi: Salmon, Tuna, Squid, Lapu-Lapu and our very own local fish Tamarong. Do not be put-off with the fishy flavor of Tamarong and Lapu-Lapu because if the fish is really fresh, all you can taste is its milky flavor that melts in your mouth. Yummy.


Salmon Teriyaki, Php350
I cannot stop eating this grilled Salmon in a sweet soy-based sauce. The salmon was super tender and the teriyaki sauce on it was not too overpowering, it gives you that genuine Japanese comfort food experience like no other.


Tenderloin Steak 150g, Php790
The beef cubes (served in bite sized pieces) were delightfully juicy and tender.


That goes for my favorites. Here are the other food offerings that you can check out at Tsuki.

No Frills Ramen All for P150 at Ramen Dojo, Cebu


I am no connoisseur but I enjoy slurping on a good ramen broth occasionally. Ramen has become a staple in the Philippine food scene. This stellar dish’s popularity is becoming a trend that a number of ramen houses are swarming in Cebu City’s food scene. Ramen Dojo first opened its doors to Cebuanos at Robinsons Cybergate back in June of 2016. When I heard that they are opening in IT Park, which is closer to where I live, I got really excited. Finally, on February 2017, Ramen Dojo opened its second branch at The Walk, Cebu IT Park.Read More »
