So glad I found a total gem in Damansara Being a Japanese food freak with perennial love for all things sushi, yakimono, soba, maki, teppanyaki, unagi and the like, I was overjoyed when all I wanted and loved could be found in Hokano. Menu placed outside so you can ogle over their epicurean Japanese dishes even before you enterTucked along the row of shophouses, this cosy restaurant might be small in size but packed with people.It's time to put these Japanese bites to test Although it was almost full-house, our meals came pretty damn quickly. Thumbs up for efficiency! First dish of the night served. Our appetizers!Japanese potato saladThe plus point here is that this dish is home-made!The 2nd appetizer which was served was the Spicy IkaIt's a stir-fried spicy squid chopped into thick and soft-chewy rings. Delicious Oh and for your kind information, this succulent baby isn't available on the menu (yet?) but it's certainly a must-order! This fish lover approves! Their salmon was fresh and tender with each bite complemented with chilled lettuce, avocados, onions and cherry tomatoes. A healthy option, that's for sure!And that's not the best part of it yet….For the special sauce that comes with it is also a homemade house specialtyI don't know what its made of (I suppose it's a best-kept trade secret hehe!) it had this sweet yet tangy citrus taste to it. We drizzled it all over our salad and into our mouths it disappeared!Another fabulous appetizer I do recommend is the Kaki Fry! I did not know what it was initially by the looks of it. Figuring it was some kind of breadcrumbed potato, I took a bite and no.. I was so so wrong! It was warm and bursting with flavour from the inside.Lo and behold, for it was actually huge, juicy oysters! Do you guys want me to go past the appetizers and dive straight into the Mains already? Hold your horses! Here's the final appetizer – Soft Shell Crab Schimi Age! Soft Shell Crab is granny's fave btw – and also mine! She'll never fail to order that at any Japanese food joints thefockers and I go to. This one is one that I will certainly bring her to on her next visit downtown. Alright alright. Appetizers are officially done with.On to the Main Dishes!Served with a bowl of rice and Miso soup, this is the Chicken Teriyaki set! As I'm very fond of teriyaki, this one I just tasted right here does not disappoint at all It sure lived up to its standards! I don't usually order set meals when I patronize restaurants (always prefer the a-la-carte for some inexplicable reason) but this one, might just be an exception I loved this bowl of delightful goodness! The next 2 dishes that plopped on our table were somewhat similar but it's the sauce, condiments and style of cooking that makes it a world of a difference It's called the Rib Eye Steak and Moromiso Steak respectively.Can't say which one tastes better because all 6 of us debated and it was an equal vote.Rib Eye Steak 3 – 3 Moromiso SteakBoth are tender and lean slices of beef interlaced with asparagus, all stacked up neatly in a pileThe Rib Eye above is made with Teriyaki sauce while the Moromiso below boasts a strong miso taste Temaki, Sushi, Makizushi, Nori and Wasabi galore! We were served many different kinds of sushi but here are the ones that won my recommendation, hands down!Here's the Alaska Roll!Loved it. Crabstick, cucumbers and avocado topped off with roe, salmon sashimi and even more avocado.Quite a common dish in most Sushi joints but you know you can never go wrong with this. It's yum!Cucumber, Tamago (Japanese for egg omelette), Unagi (Japanese for eel) and AvocadoThumbs upFinally, the creme de la creme of the crop is here. Yes, I saved the best for last.Let me introduce to you my favorite dish of all time in this restaurant, the Hokano Roll!It's the signature of Hokano Japanese Restaurant itself, chef's specialtyand my recommendation all in 1 fine hand rolled sushi Word of advice? Don't ever leave this restaurant without ordering this dish It's just everything delicious all packed into one satisfying bite. A stellar combination indeed, if I do say so myself!All in all, this place definitely gets good ratings from me. My verdict? A hidden gem offering awesome food (pretty affordable too!) along Uptown Damansara facing the LDP highway. continue reading

点了这个chicken katsu don。鸡肉的质感非常的嫩滑,里面的鸡蛋更是滑嫩。经过油炸的鸡肉外皮因为有鸡蛋的关系所以变得一点都不酥脆。外面淋上了酱油味道很好吃,米饭也很香而且粒粒分明。 continue reading

Chawanmushi. We were standing in front of two Japanese shops (located next to each other) and deciding which one to go in. Ended up, we pushed the door of Hokano. The service was good and attentive. The chawanmushi consisted of chicken piece, crab stick. The steamed egg was smooth and very soft. It has some slightly saltiness. The texture was good until we just slurped all of it. continue reading

在日本餐厅里,还是第一次吃日本的炖蛋,比起华人的蒸水蛋,日本的炖蛋味道更加浓郁因为里面放了不少的配料,所以蛋的味道更加浓郁和厨师的功夫也非常到家,炖蛋口感非常幼滑,味道不错。 continue reading

很喜欢三文鱼和牛油果的搭配。不说也不不知道原来牛油果配上芥末的味道就会很像三文鱼了。所以这种搭配非常的安全。虽然牛油果吃起来软软的不过那个丰富creamy的味道让我很着迷。外面的三文鱼片很新鲜,油脂很均匀。 continue reading
