After having the most enjoyable afternoon at Miracle Art and Star City, the whole fambam had dinner at Teriyaki Boy, which was walking distance to Star City.
The place holds dear to me as this was Bhogs and I had really known each other well on occasional early morning jogs. I also remembered having to practice our dance routines with my high school classmates at the very ground where restaurants now were built.
It wasn't easy to pick a restaurant, for once you enter the vicinity, wait-staff from different restos would refer you to their restos and offer you such packages.
But I know my kids have a penchant for pastas and ehem...Japanese meals, so opted to choose Teriyaki Boy instead and it was the first resto I saw that's familiar.
The place is know to be a watering hole so expect it to be noisy and with the ample grilling house around it may become smoky, none-the-less you will definitely find a good dining place somewhere.
When we entered everyone greeted us in Nihonggo, there were a few diners so we had ample seating to choose from, They have cute cubicle-type areas but we sat near the door.
We were immediately given water, a good point for them and the menu. It took us a while to choose, since not everyone were hungry, but the staff waited for us patiently, but didn't other to suggest anything that would be best for the group. Only to find out after dining there that they offer group meals which were much more affordable than what we ordered.
Looking at the interior, they have managed to keep it clean but I guess it's time for them to do some touch ups on the walls and seats, kinda looks old already. Though I do admit we were seated quite comfortably.
Our first orders came, 4 orders of Shake Sashimi, My kids were disappointed with its meager size and have suggested we should buy a huge piece at the grocery instead. It was also a bit soggy already, and not looking at its best. Though it was as it is juicy and yummy.
My son ordered Miso Ramen and according to him, it was okay with all its vegetables and the flavorful soup.
Teriyaki Boy Chicken Ju was expensive for P 299 with the rice serving not enough even for a twelve year old, we had to order extra rice, the chicken meat still pink in some parts and the box platter needed more teriyaki sauce.
My Dana even told me my recipe for Teriyaki Chicken was better. Aww...
The Katsudon was also so so according to my other daughter, who now in in 2nd year of Fine Arts study. She'd still bet on our favorite Nuvali Japanese resto find.
Thinned chicken meat...serving not satisfying...booh... but taste is fine.
Well, that's according to Danielle.

It was a sad dinner for us, the Shake Sashimi were delivered quick enough with the soup that went with it, but the other orders came really late more than 20 minutes had passed, what was worst was the staff almost forgot we had one more order, having to find out two of our kids were still waiting for their orders...
We could have ordered more but we hesitated, it took them a long time to finish all our orders, not quite the usual terms with Japanese serving restos.
