Sunday with LuLu Makeup Partners: Omakase & Happy Lemon

DSC06685Lunch with Janica and Achi finally pushed through after a lot of postponements due to hectic and conflicting schedules. We agreed to meet up at noontime today, at Greenhills to have lunch together and just basically catch up with each other. My sisters & I went straight to Greenhills from Saint Jude Archdiocesan Shrine where we always hear Sunday masses. We reached GH in less than 30 minutes—making us too early! Our chosen restaurant was Omakase. It serves Japanese cuisine, obviously. While waiting for Janica and Achi Char, I went around the restaurant and took photos to blog about.

Omakase is located at the Connecticut Arcade. DSC06640The ambiance of the whole place was definitely cozy and warm. Upon entering the restaurant, you will be greeted by a koi pond teeming with beautiful creatures! They all looked so plump and healthy! It was fun to watch them swim around.DSC06636DSC06639 We were led upstairs for a table for 5; I found the interior walls really pretty!DSC06632They also have huge Japanese doll figurines displayed all over the place. They all looked really adorable and I just had to take a snapshot.DSC06645Moving on to the food… Omakase’s menu is simple yet elegant. DSC06614Table setting was basically chopsticks, and a heavy ceramic plate.DSC06618They had Kikoman Soy Sauce on the tables as condiment.DSC06624

And here are the food we ordered:

Kani Tempura—flour coated crabs; definitely tasted delicioso!DSC06641I had the Panama Orange (Wild Raspberry) as beverage; it tasted fine, nothing too extraordinaryDSC06626KatsudonDSC06644Chicken Bento BoxDSC06659Teka Maki—(tuna sushi) First I have tried and I almost threw up…DSC06665Katsu-Curry—which did not taste like curry at all. And yes, that’s a heavenly cup of Japanese white rice. (wouldn’t hurt to cheat once in a while) This dish could feed 5 kids!DSC06674I don’t know what this is (Achi Char, what is this?) Looks special!DSC06676My sisters Iza and Lady tagged along with me. It was definitely fun to have them around! And yes, that’s my sister (Iza) who makes the fabulous earcuffs from The Style Prodigy.DSC06648The restroom had a beautiful mirror and an interesting-looking sink! I couldn’t figure out whether it was made out of bamboo or not.DSC06654A quick FOTD:
