We had an impromptu get together last night with our group of friends and decided to have dinner in our favorite Japanese restaurant in Alabang - MORI MORI. As far as I remember this place has always been there. Owned by a Japanese who has been living in the Philippines for years, this restaurant is a very simple place and specializes in serving Yakiniku. Beef is always top quality fresh. I think that's why this place has been in business for such a long time.
They also have other specialties/favorites that we normally always order like Kimchi, Bean Sprouts and Tempura. The food - so simple but so well made and fresh. even the rice is fantastic (moist white Japanese rice).
For Dinner, we ordered the mixed beef sampler and the Super fine Kalbi platter. Thin slices of Beef with marbled fat. So fresh it looks like Sashimi. We cook them in a piping hot grill in the middle of the table, with a foil of fresh garlic in oil. Its served with a special sweetish sauce, mixed with finely chopped garlic paste and chili.
The tempura is not like the typical oily/tiny ones that I've tried around. Huge shrimp coated in a thin coating of batter perfectly fried and not oily...the way it should be. One of my favorite restaurants in the Alabang area. The only problem: You really smell like food when you walk out - so make sure you have no where else to go after you eat here. Its definitely worth it. Its not cheap, but you are always assured of great service and Top quality food.
