Dining Experience at Chaya SM City Baguio
As soon as I stepped into Chaya in SM City Baguio, I knew I was in for a treat. The lively atmosphere, filled with the sounds of sizzling pans and the mouth-watering sights of Japanese cuisine, immediately transported me to their first branch at Legarda road. I was seated at a cozy bar table, surrounded by the hustle and bustle of the open kitchen, and quickly perused the menu.
Chaya SM Baguio Menu
Looking at the menu at the SM Baguio Branch of Chaya, a regular customer would easily determine that the menu focused on the best seller dishes. I am not sure, but it seems there are some items that are available in their Legarda branch that are not available in their SM Branch, nevertheless, they still have my favorites available.
I decided to start with the Temaki, a make-your-own sushi dish that allows you to create your own unique rolls using a variety of ingredients. The Temaki was a fun and interactive way to enjoy sushi, and I loved being able to customize my rolls to my own tastes. The variety of ingredients was impressive, with fresh fish, vegetables, and other fillings to choose from.
Next, I tried the Yakitori Momo, a dish of chicken skewers grilled to perfection and served with a savory sauce. The chicken was incredibly tender and juicy, and the sauce added a delicious depth of flavor to the dish.
I also enjoyed the Vegetable Tempura, a light and crispy dish of deep-fried vegetables that included okra, squash, sweet potato, sweet potato leaves, onions, and eggplants. The tempura batter was perfectly light and crisp, and the vegetables were cooked to perfection.
To top it all off, dessert was cream anmitsu, a generous serving of vanilla and green tea ice cream, surrounded by slices of fresh fruits, jelly and sweet red adzuki beans.
Overall, my dining experience at Chaya in Baguio City was truly exceptional. The food was delicious, the atmosphere was lively and inviting, and the service was top-notch. If you’re a fan of Japanese cuisine, I highly recommend trying the Temaki, Yakitori Momo, and Vegetable Tempura at Chaya in Baguio City.
