John and Yoko Cosmopolitan Japanese.

This is one of those entries from my personal blog that I wanted to share here - the lunch at John and Yoko in Greenbelt 5. This was in 2010 (two long years ago) when my friend Jennette had a quick vacation from her UN posting in Nepal. She picked John and Yoko because she was craving for some Japanese food.

While I actually loved what I ordered and that I was fascinated about the Japanese food with a twist concept, I still prefer real Japanese food.

The resto's decors are modern and the service, fast and friendly. Apart from Japanese food, John and Yoko also offers pizza, pasta, and burgers. Good place to dine with friends or celebrate birthdays. This resto is almost always full during dinner on weekends, so call ahead to reserve.

Overall, it was wonderful. More than the food, it was the company of Jennette and CBB that made eating there (and that entire afternoon in general) fabulous. It was story and laughter-filled five hours with Jennette sharing about her experiences in Nepal. We did a lot of catching up. You see, Jennette was away from the country too long, working as an expat in Congo, Myanmar, and Nepal.

After lunch, we headed off to Gelatissimo for some sinful gelato and coffee and more conversation.

Jennette is back in the country, still working for the UN. Our recent lunch was at The Bombay which I will blog soon!


Crunchy Tuna. This has amazing flavors and texture. And I like that it's a bit spicy.


Tuna Sashimi. I didn't try that but Jen said it's fresh and really good.


Wagyu Beef and Bacon. I don't really like beef, but this one just melts in your mouth.


Flavorful, but not really my taste, these two.


Jennette (on the left) is wise, funny, and no-nonsense.
