We were going to watch La Bayadere ballet at Istana Budaya so we thought of going somewhere nearby to eat. My friend brought me to Avenue K since it is the nearest mall.
Since I am having a craving for Japanese food, I decided on the most difficult to pronounce restaurant which was Tsukemen and Izakaya Ieyasu at the top level. The place looks quite alright in terms of ambience but there were few people eating there.
My friend ordered his favourite Tempura Moriawase (RM 18) which was just normal and not that great. I felt that the batter was not nicely done.
The 3 kinds of sashimi (RM 48) with octopus, salmon and butterfish was not fresh enough, compared to even the ones at Sakae Sushi. I think I have eaten too many of the better ones.
The Goma Ramen (RM 25) which was ramen with thick sesame soup was lives up to its name and to the recommendation of the waitress. There was half an egg, vegetables and a very thin slice of pork. The soup was delicious and we almost finished everything.
The Yakitori Moriawase (RM 28) was the worst I have ever eaten in my entire life. The worst is that all the meat and items were deep fried instead of barbecued to tenderness like what we normally eat outside. In fact, the chicken liver was also too hard. The chicken skin was too hard too. The pork has too much fat and also too hard. The BBQ garlic and also celery which we did not touch as I was afraid of making my mouth smelly. It is also weird that they serve this together with raw egg yolk.
The green tea costs RM 2 each.
After the meal, they gave us complimentary red bean soup with sago. It was just ok as I am not a fan of red bean.
The entire bill costs RM 121 which was quite expensive and not worth the price for the terrible sashimi and also Yakitori.
