Been wanting to try Mecha Uma since last month, but heard that it was on its soft opening with limited seating. So finally had a chance to try for a Birthday Dinner and I must say Mecha Uma overwhelmed my palette. It was such a treat—with no exaggeration!!!

Recent years Manila been really progressive with new restaurants. This baby takes the cake. I find myself savoring every dish. It was truly an experience I hadn’t had for the longest time.
There is no menu. Ten courses, many of which are seafood. The Chef surprises us whatever tickles his fancy based on what is freshly available. I remember the dinner took us almost 2hours and looked forward in every dish that was coming out. Figuring each dish before Chef Bruce can explain his creations. Fresh produce wonderfully layered. 

Thanks Jane Tai for the Birthday Treat & Danna Coyiuto for arranging the dinner
