Sabroso Saturday: Haru in New York City #SabrosoSaturday

by Migdalia Rivera

It’s Sabroso Saturday (Translation: Tasty Saturday)! The day when we share recipes that have helped us stretch our budget, our imagination and our taste buds, without sacrificing our health.


With the busyness of this past month, I have to admit I needed a break so the boys and I decided we would go out to dinner. I opted for Haru, a modern Japanese restaurant

The first time I ate at Haru was as a mystery shopper. Although I wasn’t paid to perform the shop, I was able to enjoy an amazing lunch with a co-worker. I don’t believe I would ever have eaten at Haru if not for the mystery shopper opportunity. I normally eat a homemade lunch.  When I did purchase lunch, I would spend no more than $7. However, since the company was picking up the tab for me and one other, we went.

The ambiance was intimate, perfect for a date or business meeting. The servers were attentive, without being obtrusive. When served, I loved the presentation. And the food, ahhh the food … it was sabroso/savory/tasty/delicious! Yes, sabroso means all of those words and Haru’s food was sabroso to the 10th degree!  

During this outing, my boys and I were seated in the back with other families. The seating was just right for us. We were able  to talk, laugh and catch up to our heart’s content. We also snatched tasted food from each other’s plate. Below are a few of the items we ordered.

Haru rolls-

Haru Chicken Tempura


Haru chicken teriyaki

Although I can’t give you the recipes for the above, I can suggest you check out your nearest Haru. In fact, our dinner wasn’t too pricey. I spent the same amount I would have spent at an Applebee restaurant, about $120, with tip, and Haru’s meal, service and  ambiance was wayyyyy better!

Hello! I haven’t linked up in ages but I’m here today! The first link is the wrong link. Whoops!

That looks so yummy! I love sushi. I’ll have to find out if there is a Haru in our area.
