The restaurant was very crowded as it was a Saturday and to my surprise, most of the patrons were actually young people and students. Wow...these people definitely have a lot more pocket money than I did at their age! We didn't have long to wait for a table though. Their menu is bright and colourful with photographs of the food so it does make ordering much easier.
We started off with refreshing cups of hot green tea which are refillable upon request.
We had a salmon temaki (handroll) for starters. It wasn't too bad. We could actually taste the salmon and the seaweed was still nice and crispy. I like their serving plate though!
For mains, we had a spicy wantan ramen. These were noodles in a very spicy broth and there seemed to be a certain kimchi taste to it! To our disappointment, the only other condiments besides the wantans were 2 FATTY pieces of pork, which we don't eat! The fatty layer was amazing! I haven't seen such fat on a slice of meat in a while!
Bro had a Katsudon which was pretty good. There was a generous slice of breaded fried pork on rice, topped with a delicious egg and onion omelette.
And we shared this pot of nabemono. It's a delicious one-pot stew served in a cute little cauldron and was full of chinese cabbage, slices of meat, tofu, spring onions and topped with a poached egg. The soup was a little similar to the ramen but wasn't as fiery. My favourite was the tofu. It melted like silk in the mouth...lovely!
Before leaving, I took a picture of their board outside the restaurant. It's filled with pictures of their food. What an excellent way of advertising!
The bill for 4 of us came up to approximately RM50+. I just have one question...anyone wondered why they serve their soup dishes with ladles? We actually saw people eating with those ladles and it did look a little funny and unwieldy! Maybe it's the authentic Japanese style of eating!
