Me and Lace were planning to have a dinner date last night, my first thought is to dine at Aozora and then she told me that she want to try that old Korean restaurant near our home in Tagaytay. But then we received a short notice from Mama that she wants to have our dinner in Aozora Japanese Café and Bistro, so we agreed to join and then we decided to eat an early dinner and walk to Aozora before night time.

Walking on the sidewalk at nearly 6pm here in Tagaytay is fun, cool and also freezing hahaha. We covered ourselves with lots of layer just to beat the cold weather with strong wind factor. Its like we’re in another country with cold weather hahaha.

We arrived in Aozora Japanese Café and Bistro before dark and I noticed that the restaurant is busy with lots of dining customers. Wow!! that’s a good status for the resto, it’s a bit different when we 1st dine here few months ago, it was quiet and spacious, but last night, it was so crowded. I guess the restaurant is now discovered by people from Manila by word of mouth online. Congratulations Aozora!

I realized that my son haven’t tried yet the food in Aozora, but we were here before but ate our dinner at La Finca restaurant, which is located below Aozora. Our son Ash got amazed again to see the Taal Volcano, and then I heard some trivia again from him and told me that the crater is going small every year (I don’t know which crater)

Aozora Japanese Café and Bistro is so alive that night, with lots of dining customers, happy guest and nice display of Japanese folding fans on the wall. I also caught a glimpse of their Japanese chef behind the counter making our sashimi and maki.

Shoyu ramen

The Bulalo ramen always comes with a candle lit heater, this will keep your ramen warm and hot.
I wonder if they have a version with hot plate only, I want to eat this without the heater.
