Almost There! Adjusting The Palate?

We seem to be enjoying Japanese food more often lately here in KL now that the trip to Japan is just two months away. Didn't seem to care about going to any Japanese restaurants after our vacation last year and now; here we are eating Japanese food every week!

I guess it's a way of our tummy anticipating the upcoming trip!
It was Sushi Zen at Gardens Mall one week. The boy of ours craved for some sushi. I had their tempura set which was the set of the day/week/month. Can't remember which. Zaini had ebidon, I think.
Then, it was dinner for two at Kampachi Restaurant over at Equatorial Bangi-Putrajaya on Zaini's birthday. We went completely unadventurous and ordered the teshoku (set meal). Kaki tama don (oyster & egg) for me and grilled cod fish for hubby.

We can't enjoy Japanese food and let our Son miss the treat too, so we took him for lunch at Miyagi Restaurant in Bandar Baru Bangi. Generous portion. Nice ambiance. I told Zaini it was like entering a Mom and Pop eatery somewhere not frequented by tourists in Japan. It even had the smell of a joint like some small eating place in the back alley of Asakusa! Heh!
 
Sushi & udon set for Raimie, Yakiniku set for Zaini and I had teppan beef set. Burp!

Will we be eating more Japanese food in the coming weeks I wonder?

  4. @Japan Australia,
    I should pace myself with eating Japanese food now. LOL

    Haven't been eating them in ages in Malaysia since we were back from our holiday last year. Not even cooking that much Japanese either. I guess my tummy got excited at the prospect and hankered for some Japanese food lately. ;p

  5. I'm glad that you like many kinds of Japanese food.
    Asakusa is the one of the places that you can enjoy old traditional alley.

  6. @cocomino,
    I like all kinds of food, Japanese, Chinese, Indian, Western. The highlight of travel for me is being exposed to different food culture as well as sightseeing too. :)

  12. Well actually, it looks far better that the food court at the local shopping-center. I think I mean it looks very Japanese (& oishii!)

  13. @sixmats,
    I had the tempura but lately I'm not enjoying them much. Don't know why I'm not into fried food lately. Must be a sign of me aging. huhu

  14. @Dan,
    They better be! Looking Japanese, I mean. Two of the places we visited for our meals aren't exactly offering food court priced items. xD

  18. @Alice,
    For overall experience, I recommend Miyagi Restaurant. Fast service, reasonable price( they don't charge the 6% government tax) and generous portion. Nice ambiance too.

  19. Hi Lina, I don't think you can ever get enough Japanese food. We still eat it quite regularly even when we are not in Japan :)

    Should taper any Japanese food consumption now... just like I'm tapering my running training. DOn't want to overdo and overeat! ;p

  23. It all looks yummy! With so much eating sushi in preparation, I hope you don't get tired of it when you are in Japan.:P I remember eating wonton noodle soup in a small outdoor Asakusa eatery.

  24. @AVCr8teur,
    I don't think I'll get tired of eating Japanese food. But of course, I'm gonna miss spicy food after a week in Japan. xD

    And anyway, to me; Japanese food served overseas just don't taste the same as eating them in their land of origin. Looking forward to eating lots in Japan. ;)
