Kampai! Roku celebrates one year of authentic Jap food!


In Japanese, it is Cheers!  There was reason to celebrate on the night of 11-12-13 as Roku celebrated its first year anniversary.  A lot of artists, musicians and media people(including me) graced the wonderful event and it was a success in more ways than one.

It was one of the best events I have attended this year as good music was provided by Deuce Manila.  There was also a photo booth for remembrance and there were prizes given away for best costume, best couple and best Instagram photo.

My alias for the night was Ramen Boy as I feasted on several cups of their ramen especially the Seafood Shio Ramen.  I have to say that I am became a big fan of ramen on this night because of what I tasted.

The Firecracker roll was very spicy.  I have a low tolerance on spicy food so I was not able to taste it.  My blogger friends told me it was really good though.

The Chicken and Beef Tsukume satisfied my cravings.  I had a lot of it but nobody noticed that including me as I lost count of the number of sticks I devoured.

The Sushi Trio included tempura, crab and salmon.  It was a sight to see for seafood lovers.  I tried out all three of them and they were all good.

I am not that fond of cakes but their Green Tea Cheesecake really became an instant favorite.  I would find myself craving for this cake on several occasions.

The campus movers for the night included Michelle Gumabao, Andre Paras, Alyssa Valdez, Fons Martinez and Steph Ayson.  There were also local celebrities present including Andi Eigenmann, Sam Milby, Yael Yuzon and Kris Bernal.  It was like an awards night and that shows how much people really appreciate the food at Roku.

Host Maxene Magalona never failed to energize the crowd.  It was my first time watching her host and she really is good with it.

Actress Andi Eigenmann showed us that she looks fantastic in personal.  It felt wonderful to see her for the first time.


Congratulations to owner Sheila Romero.  I am sure Roku will continue to be successful in the coming years as it was the first time I have tasted their food and I came away impressed.  Me and my friends Eyah and Kax sure had a good time.


I have to thank Sheila's daughter Milka Romero for inviting me.  She ended the night with a touching tribute for her mother and that was very sweet.
