Locating in Publika, i had bump into this place a few times until one day i paid the effort in walking into the restaurant to find out what serves in the menu.
What attracted me it was their interior at first, that is why i have got a few nice impression about this place. Everything is wood and very Japanese cultural fit out.
Then, is the food. Authentic Izakaya style which goes perfect with boost & drinks.
First & only one outlet so far in Malaysia.Let me introduces about Tsubohachi to you.
What is Izakaya?
Original in Hokkaido Japan and has got more than 300 outlet in just Japan itself for the past 42 years.
It is famous for its tranditional Izakaya style ever since it is being established in year 1973 in Hokkaido, Japan.
Why is it famous?
Because it is part of the culture in Japan. Izakaya is a type of casual Japanese drinking place which serves food to accompany with drinks after long day of working.
So if you are familiar of Publika, it is actually facing opposite of the housing area.
And also very easy to be spotted onto if you are driving on the road.
It look as if i was walking into an authentic Japan restaurant and the design just simply took my sight away.
They have got Japan iconic decors on the wall and also they display the sake bottle in aligned on the shelving.Also, the menu in Japanese text font.
If you dont understand Japanese text, it's alright.
They have got a friendly menu on every of their serving table, neatly placed in order.Their red menu is their recommended/special menu.
Because Izakaya is a casual drinking place, thus Sake is part of their menu.
Very affordable in pricing too with the quantity per bottle served.Of course if you do not wish to order any sake, they have got other alcoholic, mocktail or cocktail drinks in the menu. Asahi SubZero is a must try.
First in Malaysia, and it chills your throat down to your tummy.
Awesome.They also have got highball drink series, It's a combination of whisky & soda.
This one here is Ginger Highball.
It was a favorite by all.
The Grilled | Yakitori
the chef itself was imported from Japan, and the grilled timing was perfect for tasting."
All their grilled comes in two type of flavour. With Sauce or with Salt.
But it's crunchy here in Tsubohachi.
They special select the skin & made some process to filter out the 'fatness'
The salad is cooked and served in chilled.
Very refreshing in taste and it serves good as an appetizer.
And their karaage chicken is very tender & juicy.
The special of this two dishes is that they are both mashed potato but tasted like mochi texture.
Specially after it was dressed with the teppanyaki sauce and the pot went sizzling hot.
Because Japanese dont always eat salmon, they tends to mackerel and tuna in alot of cooking method.
Thus grilled atka mackerel is a must in the menu, Izakaya style.
But of course if you would like to have raw sashimi salmon, they have it in their menu too.
they have got this cute flowing somen noodle set.
Pork Belly with Cabbage served in mille feuille style.
And the soup are natural sweet with the pork broth dipped.
Very light in taste thus its the sauce which makes most of the flavoring.
Thin green tea crepe skin with red bean paste & vanilla icecream.
A very nice combination.
The citron tasted like natural sweetness and feels very chilling in mouth.
Suitable for girls who love drinking sweet wine. Recommended.
price is per pax but you will get whatever they listed there.And addition, i realize alot of japanese comes in group dining in Tsubohachi.
And their table is all filled with food & also alot of sake/beer & all sorts of drinks.
Mostly respectable, is that they tends to drink very well.
They will go sober but not totally drunk!TSUBOHACHI MALAYSIA
