Everybody’s doing it…

Well, everybody’s doing it and as they say, if you can’t beat them, join them…but no, the truth is my girl said she was thinking of having some sushi so after our late morning Sunday service at the cathedral in town last Sunday, we dropped by here

We had not been here for a while too as parking is always a problem round these parts but surprisingly, there were a few vacant lots that day.

They were out of this…

…and I did not want the salmon one that we had been having on our previous visits so I ordered the nabeiyaki udon (RM17.90)…

…to share instead.

I also asked for the salmon shio-teriyaki (RM10.90)…

…and seeing that salmon’s my girl’s favourite, I just let her and the mum eat all that and did not have any myself. After all, there was salmon too in the dai dai roll (RM14.90)…

…that we also had.

The inari kizami (RM6.90) and inari lidako (RM6.90)…

…were very nice too. I love these in the tofu skin pouches or whatever they call them if there is a special name for that…and there was unagi in one, another of Melissa’s favourite.

Another of her favourite is the pumpkin korokke (RM13.90)…

…so we had that too and also the potato salad (RM7.90)…

…that everyone enjoyed to the max. It was different from those that we had had before in the western cafes and restaurants and certainly had an edge over the rest.

My girl wanted to pick up the tab for this very delightful lunch that we had but of course, I would not hear of it. After all, I am still getting my pension and there is enough to go round and to pamper ourselves a bit sometimes…and if anyone’s interested and does not know where this place is, two doors away in the block of shops right across the road from the 7-storey Pagoda, the name and address is as follows:
Zen Japanese Fusion Dining
16, Chew Geok Lin Road, Sibu
Telephone: 084-4328101

We do have one of those franchises here in Sibu and also another local one that specialises in Japanese cuisine but my preference is this one and anytime we feel like going Japanese, this would be the place.
