Taking a quick break from Bohol posts again to make way for this EJC Japanese Restaurant and Sushi Bar post. I still have so much Bohol posts in line and I feel like I won’t finish it ’till next year. lol. Let’s hope not!
I wanted to eat at EJC Japanese Restaurant and sushi bar for months but we were always too busy. Finally, after running some errands in Cabanatuan City, we made a quick stop at EJC Japanese Restaurant. It was situated beside a gasoline station in a highway and it was along the way home so we decided to make a quick stop. Besides, I’ve been craving for salmon sashimi for months now!
Upon placing your orders, they would serve these free appetizers and green tea. And also, they serve lemon water to their guests.
EJC Japanese Restaurant and Sushi Bar Ambiance:
It’s a nice little restaurant situated beside a gasoline station. There’s not much customers when we dined in so it’s pretty quiet and chill.
The sushi bar is located at the corner of the restaurant. I would love to sit there but Earvin doesn’t eat sahimi and he’s not really a fan of any kind of sushi. Haha! I forced him to have dinner at the EJC Japanese Restaurant and Sushi Bar. I am still recovering from dengue, so he obliged. Haha! 😉
There’s also a TV but if you were to sit in the sushi bar, you can’t watch it.
Imagine Earvin’s delight when he saw in their menu that they serve ramen! Much to his dismay, they don’t serve tonkotsu ramen. They only have Shoyu Ramen, Tempura Ramen, and Beef Stir Fry Ramen on their menu.
Earvin ordered the Shoyu Ramen which costs around 179php, and he said he’d rate it 4/10. But knowing Earvin, he only likes Ramen Nagi’s Red King for his ramen. I decided to try the soup and it does taste pretty bland. According to him, the pork is chewy too and that if it were tender, he would give the Shoyu Ramen a higher rating.
Now let’s talk about salmon sashimi, this is what we came in for after all! I was surprised when I read their menu and saw that 7pcs of salmon sashimi is only 220php! Pretty affordable, huh? If we haven’t eaten dinner before heading home, I’d order two plates in a heartbeat! But I was pretty full and mom cooked dinner at home which means we have to eat again when we get home so I settled for a plate.
The salmon is fresh and so so buttery! And it has amazing texture too. I also appreciate the pickled ginger on a plate, can’t have sashimi without it! Ugh, just looking at these pictures while I’m writing this post makes me want to dine in at EJC Japanese Restaurant and Sushi Bar again.
If you ever find yourself in Nueva Ecija or if you’re from Nueva Ecija who fancies japanese food, EJC Japanese Restaurant and Sushi Bar is worth visiting. I forgot to take a photo of their menu but the food they serve are pretty affordable. Their staff is so friendly and accommodating too.
I am pretty sure we’ll be back at this restaurant so I can have their salmon sashimi again and to try something new from their menu. 🙂
