As the community quarantine eases, Solaire’s Japanese restaurant Yakumi has brought back its popular Sunday brunch – guaranteed to satisfy the cravings of patrons whose appetites may have been tempered by the extended shutdowns.

Separate rooms for teppanyaki and tempura add classic flavor to the live cooking stations that serve sushi, sashimi, meat teppanyaki and robatayaki in a large open kitchen, allowing patrons to see how the ingredients – sourced largely from Japan – are carefully prepared and blended using traditional techniques and modern presentation.

The experience is indeed incredible, eating lavishly like a perfect way of life, that no other Japanese subway restaurant can offer the best Japanese dishes created by the best Japanese chefs in the world.

It is the freshest fish, shellfish, meat (chicken, pork and beef) and other ingredients, including vegetables, paying homage to the Japanese art of shun – the very heart of Japanese cuisine – when local and seasonal food is at its peak of flavor and freshness, at its peak of perfection.

Yakumi’s favorite drink, lemon aloe vera before or during the meal, pairs well with unlimited sake, shochu and wine after savoring the tasty Japanese palate.

To continue the culinary experience, Yakumi also offers an à la carte menu of sukiyaki donburi and ramen.

Also delicious is the dessert that comes in a bento box - surprisingly a melody of fresh fruit on the top and cookies and treats on the bottom.  For the kids (when dinner is already allowed for young people under the age of 18), there's a candy station that offers all kinds of Japanese candy - from those wrapped in the usual plastic to fluffy apple-like candies that look like jelly.  And yes, it's open to take out for Sunday brunch customers.

A foodie chooses miso-marinated foie gras, thick and juicy Hokkaido scallops, and decadent bento as his favorites. And for the incredible value for money experience, he says he will definitely be returning – soon – with his family and friends.
