One of the cheapest Japanese food I've eaten in KL, even by Ipoh's standards, is this Yakiniku Restaurant which serves barbecued items over a stove, a DIY approach that may prove fun for a family outing. In case you're worried of smoky environment that may leave you smelling of ashes and charcoal at the end of the meal, fret not. They implement an intelligent vacuum system over every stove on every table, ensuring your comfort while dining. Only gripe? The yellow lighting is a bit too dim, bad for snapping photos, AND indecisive when determining whether the meat is adequately cooked or not.Australian Beef Loins (RM14.90), Pork Bacon (RM5.90) and Lamb Leg (RM7.90)
They serve ala carte items, as well as ramen, salad, and so forth. But the star attraction is of course, the barbecued items. From pork to lamb and beef, as well as squid and vegetables, the combination is endless, and each plate is individually priced (and reasonably too).The bacon was so good, we had 2nd helping ... just ignore the streaks of artery-clogging culprit. =)
The dipping sauce for the meat is a secret recipe of their own, which complements the grilled meat very well. You can ask for refill (the sauce, not the meat) at no extra charge. I even pour some on my white rice.BLUE fire? Of all magic, my hp does has some nifty trick up its erm, sleeve? =P
The meat are all thinly sliced, to ensure thoroughly and rapidly cooked. Just keep an eye for burnt bits while grilling the bacon, as the fatty portion tends to get burnt pretty fast.Seafood Salad
Of course, there are various appetizers, snacks and even noodles as well as fried rice to complete your meal. The drinks segment is quite impressive, and the flavoured tea is served in a tall jar, adequate hydration guaranteed. Hehe ....
So, if you're ever in Pandan Indah/Pandan Jaya/Cheras area, do drop by for some good grub. The choices are astonishing, from Pudu's Fei Por chicken rice, Kin Kin Pan Mee, to Hong Kee Tim Sum (to be blogged at a later date), Tsim Tung & Axtivo for Hong Kong delights, Steven's Corner for 24 hours coverage of mamak food, a good number of 'Dai Chow' Chinese restaurants, and not forgetting the cafes.
