Saturday Sushi Brunch@Sushiya, Plaza Mont Kiara

The past weeks had been crazy hectic beyond measure and I haven’t had proper meals for many days. Ms Foodieventura down time.

I had to work over the weekend. I got up early and headed out for a nice brunch, a little booster reward to lift up the mood.

Sushiya is located at the ground floor of Plaza Mont Kiara, just within the courtyard area opposite McDonalds.

The restaurant is mainly run by Japanese which does give a more authentic feel. The place was very clean and they played jazz music. It did lift up my sombre mood and I was up for some food jappie foodie!

The sashimi platter was the size of 2 pax portion. Cost a whopping RM100++. @_@ the fish slices were somewhat fresh, decent thickness slices. The lemon slices were also really fresh to the extent the salmon sashimis absorbed in a little of the citrusy juice. All were alright, except the octopus sashimis…just way too hard. I’m guessing it could have been around for a couple of days already.

The kaisan barachirashi bowl cost RM30++. When cold meets hot. Cold cuts of fish chunks, raw prawn slices and bubbly salmon roes meet steamy hot fattened white pearly japanese rice. Pretty hearty, fresh and healthy. But I had a bigger WOW moment of a similar dish such as this from Oukatsu.

The soft shelled crab and unagi roll cost RM23++ was my favourite among the 3 dishes today. They freshly deep fried the crab so as you bit in, you would get this loud crunching sound wit slight frying oil oozing out, before tasting the sweet crab meat. The unagi was nicely marinated and also tasted a little warm, as if they were freshly grilled too.

I’d prolly give this place a second try some time soon to try out the sushis. Haha. The restaurant is called SUSHIYA, and I did not order any sushis today. Pleasant experiene and certainly looking forward to returning soon!

Alright. Off to work now!

Taiping-like wantan noodles@Kee Kim Huat Kopitiam, Johor Bahru

It is truly wonderful to have friends who enjoy good olde hearty breakfast meals, especially so when your friend is also a foodie person.

I joined her for an early breakfast at 7 am, along with her adorable kiddos. We came to Kee Kim Huat, where I came here few times in the past for lumch, to try the long awaited claypot chicken rice of which customers were not allowed to ‘remind them or chase them’ if their food was taking a little longer than usual to cook. 

My personal opinion was that the claypot chicken rice was good, but not enough to make me wait that long while being suppressed from enquiring. 

This time I was back here, early in the morning instead and the crowd was different! Mainly locals, families and young adult workers. Pretty homely feel and the weather that morning was super cloudy.

The claypot chicken rice stall was closed but several other stalls were opened and today we were here for wantan noodles!

One of my favourite meals and I almost always order back wantan noodles at most kopitiams. My friend said they would be sold out by 9 am and the owners would be done for the day. Wow!

While we waited for our wantan noodles, I joined in the locals’ breakfast delight, hot kopi and toast butter kaya buns. Her kiddos enjoyed them very much, and so did I. Teeheehee. Like a kid again.

My wantan noodles arrived! And my first impression was that, Hey it kinda looked like my Taiping Prima Kopitiam wantan noodles.

And yes, even the taste too! Surprised at how similar it tasted. Every ingredient tasted fresh, especially the chicken broth. Clear as sky, but full of chicken flavours and aroma.

I felt like I was teleported back to Taiping with the whole homely local scene having wantan noodles, hot coffee and toast bread.

Worthy to come back here for the WTM if you can wake up early for breakfast foodieventure!
