|Going loco for KoKo|
Once in a while, an intense craving or hankering for Japanese food hits us especially at the onset of the dark & dreary rainy season only to be disappointed either with the taste and preparation.
You see, capturing & perfecting the preciseness of the aroma and flavor of the inimitable Japanese cuisine takes absolute devotion & meticulous attention to details in the preparation.
So imagine the absolute delight and elation of Japanese food lovers when KoKo Restaurant, Bohol’s first authentic Japanese restaurant finally opened yesterday.

Just two nights before the grand opening, there was a soft opening & blessing attended by close family, friends & acquaintances of RG Ong & Ebone Ong, the attractive power couple behind the new restaurant.

Koko, in Japanese, means “here” or “this place”. It is truly a place where eating is regarded as a holistic experience with food to be savored and enjoyed in the company of family & friends. A most welcome addition, I might say, to Tagbilaran’s vibrant & upscale dining places.
A very successful opening with satisfied guests
The widest array of Japanese gustatory delights
During the soft opening last Friday night, guests including Your Roving Eye raved over their Koko Ramen. The secret is in the broth made from boiling pork bones over high heat for many hours that could stretch to two to three days which gives the broth its heavenly pork flavor & simmered to a consistent thickness. Their ramen is served in generous heaps and comes in three different offerings.
BOWL OF KOKO RAMEN: A delightful & satisfying experience
From sushi & sashimi to their ramen, from appetizers & starters to the main entrees, KoKo Restaurant has a wide selection of Japanese cuisine to choose from.
