Sushi with a twist at "Ta Ke Ho Me Sushi Stand"

Creating a different take on sushi/ Japanese rolls is this small glass shop in SM North Edsa called Ta Ke Ho Me Sushi Stand (tah-keh-ho-meh) or TakeHome Sushi (as I call it).

They have quite and interesting selection of rolls and rice balls that make you think "Oh, I didn't think this combination was possible". And along with your interesting mix of rolls that cater to the Filipino palette, they also offer some canned Asahi.

The jewel of their menu, in my opinion, is the Bacon Bomb. A fusion of Japanese and Western decadence as you get a rice ball of spicy salmon, with shreds of nori, wrapped in juicy bacon, and smothered in Japanese Kewpie mayo. A selection that rightfully explodes in your mouth. this alone makes me want to come back for more. This concoction is best enjoyed directly after it has been handed to you. I wouldn't recommend this as a take home since the nori would end up moist after being mixed with cooked rice, and the bacon would loose its crisp.

Foodie Experiments: Tuna Crunch Surprise

A tangy, refreshing, tasty treat full of proteins and vitamins. I made this one when I had to monitor my son's health.


2 cans of Century Tuna Chunks
1 pack of Del Monte Pineapple Tidbits
1 bottle Kewpie Japanese style Mayonaisse
2 large cloves of garlic, finely chopped
1/2 Onion, finely chopped
1 small bag of Croutons
iodized salt
finely ground black pepper

Heat up about 1 tablespoon of cooking oil then add the garlic.
after a few seconds (before the garlic turns brown), add the tuna chunks, separating and mixing them as you would with canned corned beef.
Pour in half of the juice from the pineapple tidbits pack into the pan. Dispose of the rest of the liquid, then add the pineapple tidbits. Mix until some of the tidbits shows signs of caramelizing.
Add the onions, a dash of iodized salt and a dash of black pepper.

Transfer to a bowl, add the mayonaisse and mix thoroughly.
Add the croutons as needed while mixing.

This dish is a filling healthy snack, or viand.

You can add lettuce if you want.

I prefer this served from the fridge if its served as a snack. Also goes well with potato chips.
