NOMAMA AT CAPITOL COMMONS – I’ve been a fan of Nomama, one of Chef Him Uy de Baron‘s signature restaurant since I tried their food when we did a food crawl around the Quezon City Area. Wrote about their restaurant when I was just starting up with the blog and did number of return visits since then. I really like how Him build on his flavor combinations, and the meticulous plating too, every component seemed perfectly placed. I think his food is imaginative and the flavor and texture components on most of the dishes are really good, he also did a number of tweaks with the formulation of his ramen and the noodles that goes with it making it infinitely more enjoyable. Recently we visited Nomama‘s new branch at Capitol Commons, trying up some new stuff from their menu, and even old ones, that we might’ve missed with previous visits.

Oh this dreamy dessert is really a sight to behold, tried my best not to let my jaw drop when it was served on our table, when I was clearly drooling and giddy with excitement.
