“Japanese spaghetti and pizza” sounds incongruous, like “Italian ramen and sushi”, but it works. Trust the Japanese to take an alien concept and do it better than the original. (If that sounds racist we’re sorry, but we’re fans of Japan.)
This was our second visit to Yomenya Goemon, the Japanese spaghetti and pizza place in Greenbelt 3 (2nd floor, nearest the carpark). We ordered the 10-inch Smoked Chicken and Four Cheese Pizza and the spicy Spaghetti Vongole.
Usually we prefer pizza with a very thin and crunchy crust, but Yomenya’s pizza dough is so delicious and chewy we would eat it without toppings. The pasta is perfectly al dente—add olive oil, garlic and clams, and we’re happy. Who needs complicated sauces when the pasta is this good?
Even the background music made us happy: Miles Davis’s Kind of Blue album. The Japanese and jazz.
For a pizza, a pasta, and two sodas our bill came to Php757. Very reasonable for this quality (A similar order at a fast food joint would cost more).
