  • Aozora Japanese Cafe + Bistro in Tagaytay
  • Getting a glimpse of the blue sky is something only possible if you go al-fresco on a nice day. While Metro Manila has its fair share of al fresco dining restaurants, it’s hard to find one that actually gives you an unobstructed view of the sky.

    That’s not the case with Aozora Japanese Cafe + Bistro in Tagaytay. Aozora, which translates to “blue sky”, is the place to be if you’re looking to dine under a blue sky and get a taste of authentic Japanese cuisine.

    The restaurant itself is casual; no need to worry about what you’re wearing the day of your visit. The interiors give you a sense of dining in a simple Japanese restaurant: a lot of wood with bar-style dining and several tables for those who want to bring company.

    It feels like dining in heaven thanks to its location. Situated on the scenic ridge of Tagaytay, even a meal inside the restaurant will give you a glimpse of blue skies. Food, however, is still at the helm of Aozora. Their menu is carefully crafted by a Japanese chef, ensuring every meal is as authentic as can be.

    Aozora Ramen (Php 320). Ever had bulalo as your ramen’s soup base?

    There are Filipino twists you have to try out, though, like their signature Aozora Ramen (Php 320). It’s a good mix of Japanese and Filipino flavors, combining traditional ramen techniques with a dish that represents Tagaytay: bulalo or beef shank soup. It’s a hearty meal by itself, with flavors that are distinctly Filipino presented in something that’s very Japanese.

    Kani Salad (Php 310)

    Mixed Sushi Platter (Php 510)

    Their Kani Salad (Php 310) is nice and light. There’s also their Mixed Sushi Platter (Php 510), which includes some of the most popular variants: salmon, octopus, and even egg.

    Dragon Maki (Php 350)

    If you’re looking for something that’s a bit more special, then get their Dragon Maki (Php 350). It’s a shrimp maki that’s made to look like a dragon with flavors to match.
