Akamomiji Japanese Restaurant @ Ipoh
Happy Chor 11 everyone! How’s your Chinese New Year celebration so far? Me as usual stayed in KL throughout the holidays as both hubby and myself are local. It has been a quite relaxed holiday for me until I was totally forgot about my blog (^^;) Okay, it’s time to go back to the track and clear the cobweb. （＾ω＾）(Although there’re 5 more days before the Chinese New Year celebration comes to the end :P)
Before heading back to KL, we had our late lunch at Akamomiji Japanese Restaurant nestled in Medan Ipoh Bistari. We were the only customer that time most probably due to the non peak hour (circa 2pm+). The restaurant was bright and airy with dining area nicely separated into two areas. Wooden tables and chairs were arranged neatly within the dining area and the restaurant was sparingly decorated with Japanese related decorations such as paintings and sake bottles. I also spotted a few private rooms.
Salmon Don (RM27.80)
The set came with miso soup, Chawanmushi and fruit. The rice bowl was topped generously with thick sliced Salmon (two different part I assumed, judging from the colours), cucumber slices, pickles and wasabi. The Salmon was fresh, soft and tender, indeed a satisfying meal for Sam, the Salmon lover.
Ebi Katsu Don (RM20.80)
Comprised the same side dishes as above, hubby’s Ebi Katsu Don came with three breadcrumbs coated shrimps, thinly sliced onion, scrambled egg and topped with seaweed. The breadcrumbs coating was soft resulted from the simmering in dashi sauce (that’s why I don’t like to order this :P) and it was a bit thick for our liking too. The shrimp size was on the small size too.
Tori Tatsutaage (RM15.80)
Crispy outer with tender and succulent meat, no complaint on this.
Soft Shell Crab Goma Maki (RM12.80)
Verdict: A decent place for Japanese food I would say, reasonably priced and sufficient portion.
