There are a few Japanese restaurants here but I don’t know exactly how many are still in business. One in particular, however, is doing so well that it has extended its business upwards; now, you can dine either at the ground floor or on the 1st floor. I, for one, do not actually fancy Japanese food but my daughter loves it, so I will have to make it a point to take her there once in a while.
Once you enter the place, the workers will start drumming on the tables and counters, chanting something that sounds like, “Dua puluh sen! Sepuluh sen!!” Liars! Nothing there is so cheap!!! In fact, I would think it is quite expensive and not worth the money spent especially when I do not think it is all that nice. When we went there recently, my daughter had the Maki plate and unagi (eel) – two tiny pieces of the fish, as you can see in the photo below!
Note the miserable-looking eel in the background!I can’t remember how much that cost but one thing’s for sure, it wasn’t cheap! I opted for something cheaper – RM11, I think it was – the Terrayaki chicken lunch set…
It was okay, but for that money, I would rather go to the dimsum place across the road and have 3 baskets of char siew pau and still get 50 sen change…..
I hear the chef’s from Beijing and they’ve got the whole works – siew mai, har kau, lo mai kai and so on. Well, at least, we can get value for money…from my point of view, that is! As they say, one man’s meat is another man’s poison…but if you’re going for dim sum anytime soon, do give me a tinkle! Yum! Yum! Dim sum!
