Working for the weekend…

I always tell my girl that on weekdays, we shall just eat at home – the mum may cook some simple everyday dishes or I can always go out and buy if I need to. However, when the weekend comes, we can always go out and treat ourselves to some place nice.

Last Sunday, we went here for our lunch. I think I dropped by this outlet once only before and if I am not wrong, it opens at 11.00 a.m. We were there around that time and there were no other customers – of course, I was delighted. Quite a number came later and there were a few who ordered takeaways – those had to stand/sit and wait outside.

My girl and the mum did drop by once at around 3.00 p.m. and the place was packed so they went next door. I  saw from a sticker on the table that at that time, 3 to 5, they would be having their happy hours, 20% discount.

I ordered this karaage egg salad (RM6.90)…

…with its special in-house salad dressing to share but the ladies had their own personal orders to cope with so I ate most of that all by myself.

My missus had the spicy yakiniku set (RM19.90)…

Yakiniku (焼き肉 or 焼肉) is a Japanese term that, in its broadest sense, refers to grilled meat cuisine. She had the beef and I did try a bit and it sure was spicy. I did not think it was to my liking so I did not help myself to more.

My girl had the piri piri chicken set (RM18.90)…

…which she enjoyed very much. Of course I sampled a bit of it too and I was o.k. with it.

Both their sets came with a bowl of chawanmushi (Japanese steamed egg custard)…

…and a bowl of miso soup.

I had the yakiniku ebi fry bento (RM17.90)…

…which included pan-fried beef and vegetables, deep-fried prawns with spicy sauce and mayonnaise served with edamame salad, crabstick and fried fish cake. I particularly liked the beef – I thought that was very nice.

I kept asking my girl to help herself to the sushi on the carousel but she was not all that keen as she was saving tummy space for her own order. In the end, she relented and took the Norwegian salmon nishoku (RM6.00)…

I did not take any from the carousel either except for the Hanjuku cheese cake, the orange-flavoured one (RM5.00)…

…which I did not like that much – I did not fancy the orange essence and the plain one (RM4.00)…

…which, between the two, in my opinion…

…is very much nicer. I simply could not resist giving them a try!

The total for everything came up to RM81.60, inclusive of drinks but with the 10% service charge and the 5% SST, the overall total came up to RM94.65. Of course it is never cheap eating at these franchise places but as long as we enjoy ourselves, it is all right to pamper ourselves once in a while, don’t you think?

SUSHI KING, the town outlet (2.291578, 111.820743) is located along Jalan Hospital, round the corner from the Lau King Howe Memorial Museum.
