Yokoso Ichiban, SSTwo Mall

>> Tuesday, August 2, 2011

I haven't written for the longest time ever!! Since I started this new job in February, I have lesser time to blog & I don't go out as often anymore for good food! I have night conference calls almost every night (hurray that I won't have night calls for the next few weeks since it's UAT!! *keeps fingers crossed*), so I will usually leave office around 6:30pm to get back in time for my bath, dinner, & then the call. You'll be surprised how much time I'm stuck on the road on the way home after work although I stay not too far from office (I chose to stay out, nearer to office).

At times, I get so tired that I'll just have oats/instant noodles for dinner. On certain nights when I'm in the mood & when I don't have any night conference calls, I'll spend the night preparing & cooking up the next day's breakfast/dinner. The area around my office seriously doesn't have any good food to offer! Not even good mixed rice except for the malay stall down the road! Food around my office is expensive, not tasty, & boring *sigh* How much sadder can work-life be, eh? Haha...so if I'm in the mood, I'll cook up something for myself :)

Tomorrow's home-made chicken burger day! Woots!!

- this post was long over-due, so I can't recall the prices anymore :( -

Overall comment: For the price you pay (average RM15.00/person) you'll get decent food served. Not too bad, really. If you're not picky with Japanese food, then this place won't disappoint you. The sashimi is fresh & the taste of food here is average. In PJ itself, if your budget is RM25.00 for a good Japanese meal, the better options are still Nihon Kai at Sunway Mentari & Ichiban Boshi at Sunway Giza (you won't have to wait like crazy just like at Sushi Zanmai). The only thing that we found weird on the day we popped by Yokoso Ichiban was the smell of insect repellent :S
Halal: Pork-free

Yokoso Ichiban is a Japanese restaurant located at the lower ground floor of SSTwo Mall, a relatively new mall right in the middle of a housing area. The mall is quite large, I would say, with a supermarket called "Urban Foods" opened just a few months ago, & too many restaurants that you're spoilt for choice. Yokoso Ichiban is one of the many restaurants there.

There were 4 of us that day during lunch so we ordered a roll for sharing & we had our own set meal/ramen as well.

Rainbow Roll (can't recall the price)
Generous serving of crispy soft shell crab rolled up with delicious rice that wasn't too soft nor too hard & dry. I've nothing much to complain although this isn't the best I've had :P It's VERY filling as well.

I'm not sure what ramen Lyd ordered, but she said that the ramen is not too bad. The noodles didn't look over/under-cooked, but the soup looks kinda plain & salty. Lyd ate up the whole bowl, which was quite large, so I gather that it's acceptable :)

Sushi Set Lunch (around RM11.90/set)
It couldn't get any cheaper without those coupon deals...hahaha...I thought it was worth eating! If you're not too hungry or if you're just craving for some sushi, this set should satisfy. You'll get 5 types of sushi, 1 chawanmushi, 1 bowl of miso soup, 1 small bowl of salad, & 2 pieces of fruits. I especially enjoyed the chawanmushi :)

Unagi Don
Good :) Truly no complaints. Portion is average & could fill up a hungry man (with the additional piece of sushi roll, that is). Unagi was flavourful, smooth & tender, & doesn't have loads of small bones like some Japanese restaurants! Ergh to those...!

After a tummy full of Japanese food, I headed to Chatime to try out this beverage for the very first time. PerutBesi's verdict: More milky, but nothing VERY spectacular. Many friends told me that the pearls are nicer - soft, yet slightly chewy (not those dry & hard ones). I've had good pearls elsewhere too, so I wasn't in awe when I drank it. I find it pricey as well, but people are very willing to spend on such drinks, aren't they? I could get a meal with RM5.90 (1 cup of Chatime)! Perhaps I should have tried those roasted rice kinda variant, eh? Oh well, it's not something that I will LONG for although I enjoy bubble tea :)
