Japanese food can be rather costly. They are not only costly, but it can be quite difficult to find good ones in Klang Valley especially. Sure, thee are those Japanese food joints, but they’re not always pleasing to my tastebuds. But lucky me, I have recently discovered that Utara Coffee House in Armada Hotel PJ is offering Simply Japanese.My wife and I decided to give it a go.
We tried 7 dishes from their Simply Japanese: Gindara Misoyaki, Namagasaki Moriawase, Kijidon Donburi, Maguro Tempura, Seafood Maki Roll, Seirogohan Zen and Shogayaki.
Gindara Misoyaki (Rm28.00). Marinated cod fish with miso paste was juicy and there was no fishy smell whatsoever.
Namagasaki Moriawase (Rm22.00). Baked oysters with monoshi/motoyaki sauce was all right. Being a harccore oyster fan, this was my favourite that night.
Kijidon Donburi (Rm26.00). Chicken teriyaki with rice and pickle. Surprisingly, Kijidon Donburi is not sickeningly sweet like other teriyaki chicken that I’m familar with. It is in fact, it’s a little bit salty and instead of being grilled, the chicken was fried to crispy perfection instead before being coated with the special made teriyaki sauce. Highly recommended.
Maguro Tempura (RM25.00) Deep fried tuna with basil and layer teriyaki sauce. The meat was succulent and juicy and was adeptly fried.
Seafood Maki Roll (RM24.00). The freshly made sushi rolls with seafood and unagi sauce. Highly recommended if you want something light and something to share.
Seirogohan Zen (RM26.00) The Salmon served with steamed rice is something you might want to try if you want something tame and quite filling to the tummy.
And lastly, the Shogayaki (RM26.00). Served with steamed rice, this definitely will warm your tummy without failed.
The Simply Japanese promo by Utara Coffee House by Armada Hotel offers something that’s not only affordable, but suits Malaysian tastebuds as well, I reckon. Give it a try. I’ve tried it and I assure you that I wouldn’t mind a second visit for these.
