Kenji Tei: Why Do I Love Thee???

Rate this: 

                     

In my quest for a great Japanese restaurant that serves everything that my family like, we were led to this full house of a restaurant in Greenbelt 5 last month. We do not really go to the third floor anymore as most of the shopping finds are in the first two floors. One of our secrets in finding great restaurants is seeing people line up for a table. This is definitely a hot pick!


Kenji Tei restaurant is an authentic Japanese Ramen House serving not just the most flavorful ramen but also the best tasting crrrunchy California Maki in town! We love the resto's swanky architecture, too!

Why do we keep coming back? 

Let me count 10 ways:

1. Salmon sashimi


I love their version of this fresh salmon dish. It is super fresh, very pink, eight big slices of tender and soft meat. My youngest son Jaime's favorite!

2. Crunchy California Maki


Our favorite dish. We just have to order 2 of these! It is served with the crrrunchiest breading. My eldest son Miguel's favorite.

3. Yakisoba


This stir fried noodles and vegetables dish is also packed with a generous helping of stir fried pork. Yum!

4. Chahan


This is my own favorite. It is a Japanese fried rice like no other. Very tasty and generous helping of so many ingredients. You can eat this as a complete meal. My guilty pleasure is their Gomoku Cha han, a seafood fried rice delight!

5. Crispy Chicken Teriyaki


This grilled crispy chicken glazed with teriyaki sauce is guaranteed to let you keep coming back for more. My husband Gerard's favorite.

6. Ebi Tempura



The biggest crunchiest ebi tempura we have ever tasted. We always order the 5 pieces. My daughter Andrea's favorite. Thankfully, it is NOT all batter, but the prawns are big, too!

7. Shoyu Ramen


One of the best tasting ramen I have ever tasted is this soy-based ramen with 2 pieces of chasu. Never fails to warm my tummy.

8. Yasai Itame



This stir fried vegetables, seafood and pork combination is not too oily. Just the right mix of vegetables, too.

9. Gyudon


Although I would have preferred this served mixed in already with the bowl of rice, my eldest son Miguel still managed to gobble it all up in a few. The tender beef and onions are simmered very slowly, flavored in dashi, soy sauce, and mirin.  

10. Tofu Steak


Breaded tofu with mushroom and pork topping. You can eat a bowlful of rice, just with the sauce, with just the right amount of saltiness.

You may need to call for table reservations as the line can get really long.

For our Japanese food fix, this is definitely at the top of our list.

Keep Walking!
