Rakuzen Japanese Restaurant, Subang Jaya

>> Saturday, June 20, 2009

Date: 14 June 2009, Sunday
Venue: Rakuzen Japanese Restaurant, Subang Jaya
Occasion: James' birthday
Overall comment: Nice ambiance, pretty good food & variety, but the prices are on the higher end.
Halal: Yes

It was a long Sunday for me as I joined the rest of my project team to support our application from 10am - 7pm. Yeap, went back to office on a Sunday. It's my 1st time doing so, & hmm...it's not too bad la. Well, if I'm not playing for church service nor am I out for TRAC MYF visitations or back to Kuantan, I may consider joining the team to see the project sail smoothly :) In any case, I enjoy working with my team, so it's all good :)

Anyways, after work on Sunday, I decided to pick James up for dinner. It was his birthday, but he didn't have any plans! Aiyor...mana boleh...?? No cake, no dinner? Cis. Miss Wong made the decision to get the birthday boy a piece of cheese cake from Secret Recipe & have a nice meal together with him. He got to choose what he wanted to eat since it was his birthday. We ended up at Rakuzen in SS15, Subang Jaya. The exterior of the restaurant looked rather impressive & expensive...hahaha...but we just gave it a try ;) We had a great time catching up with each other's lives & enjoying the delicious Japanese food that we ordered...took us such a long time to decide as we wanted to eat everything (well, I could at least speak for myself :P)!


Rakuzen Japanese Restaurant
It's on a row of shophouses opposite SJMC - quite easily spotted

The door slides open!*nice*

You'll be greeted by a glass-showcase of Japanese wine & liquor as you enter the restaurant...

Upstairs are individual 'cubicles' & an opened dining area

James - the birthday boy :)

Our starters: Kaki Fry [Fried Oysters] (RM26.00/platter)

Deep-fried oysters in batter...it's very yummy :) The oysters were large & fresh, & the batter was crispy golden brown

*drools drools drools*

Handroll Set (comes with the Claypot Udon set)

It's firmly wrapped up & the rice was nicely flavored & moist. Each set consists of 2 handrolls - one with salmon, the other with crabstick.

Claypot Udon Set (RM38.00/set)

This set came with the handroll as shown in the photo above. The sad thing about this udon was that the tempura were all soaked into the soup! *sigh* How delightful if the tempura pieces were still crispy. The claypot udon was nothing very special. However, the pickled cabbage (on the left of this photo) was pretty appetizing! It's not as spicy & sour as the Korean kimchi, but just nice to whet your appetite for more ;)

Sakura Chirashidon Zen (RM38.00/set)
Assorted seafood on sushi rice set. The sashimi & assortment of seafood was fresh & the portion was generous as well. There was so much rice that I couldn't finish it myself! *lol*

Flower Crab Miso Soup
*dances in excitement!* I have never come across flower crabs in miso soup! My miso soup had this, & it made the soup very much sweeter. Lovely! :D
