Japanese food, baby. 🙂
When I was in Tokyo last summer, I had an affair with one of my favorite soups. I savored it then more frequently than I can imagine. The most authentic and the best Sukiyaki set that I’ve ever tasted was from a restaurant that I missed out to recall located in Yurakucho.
Other than its thinly marbled and juicy beef slices submerged in very tasteful broth, I liked it so much because I had it for free. My Japanese acquaintances treated me for lunch and didn’t ask me to pay Y1000 (PhP 500) for that set.
Then again, there were days in Gotanda that I settled for its cheaper yet satiating version from Yoshinoya, Y500 (PhP 250).
Whenever my wife, our kid and I dine out in Japanese restaurants back home, I never fail to sample Sukiyaki of course.
From Umu at Dusit Thani Manila, the best Sukiyaki in town, in my opinion.
Enough with my drooling for Sukiyaki.
Last Saturday, my 2 housemate-friends brought me to SAKAE SUSHI to sample Japanese yummies from its branch at Plaza Gurney, Gurney Drive, Penang.
Ambience is casual dining, non-intimidating.
The most interesting part in this food place is the mini conveyor belt where you can simply grab your sushi cravings from.
Everything looks oishi!
Prices at Ringgit (RM1=PhP 14)…
We got some red plates…
Delicious sushi covered with generous serving of roe with cucumber slices and soft shelled crab filling. Sarap!
As I browsed their menu, I knew what I wanted.
If Sukiyaki won my heart over Miso soup, my favorite Temaki is Soft Shelled Crab! It’s the best, I tell you!
Another goody from the conveyor belt : Soft Shelled Crab (can’t get enough!) with cheesy chili sauce on vermicelli.
Tempura Ramen for doc Ronnie…
doc Alvin chose to enjoy Chicken Katsu Don + Mochi balls…
But his ultimately divine dessert was chocolate and vanilla ice cream waffle called Chocholate Yaki…
You might thought I’d leave Sakae Sushi without sampling their Sukiyaki ? Hell, no! hehehe.. 😀
Sweet and salty. It wasn’t the best for me, but was good enough to satisfy my craving.
Sakae Sushi got branches all over Penang and 2 in Pinas too!
Tina loves Japanese also, so does Gabby. He likes Kani and Ebi tempura.
Bottom line of this post, it made me hungry and yes, I’m eager to bring my family to Japanese restaurants here in Penang.
