Nippon Yataimura Restaurant at CS

*Hope I got the name right.. Hehe..

Went there to have a lunch on Valentine's Day with Jeah Loong, Han Ley, Shi Jian and Wei Heng.

The lighting was rather dim making the atmosphere quite soothing and romantic in someway for couples. For the same reason, my handphone cam won't work well in dim areas. So, didn't take much pics.

Anyway, I ordered a Teppan Chicken Ika. It consist of:
- a bowl of rice,
- miso soup,
- small plate of salad,
- one serving watermelon and
- grilled chicken and beansprout

Cost: RM20

The combination was nice to me. The little sour taste in the salad is rather appetizing, preparing your tastebuds for the main dish.

The chicken was nicely grilled. When you introduce a small piece into your mouth, your tongue can feel the crispyness of outer layer of the chicken. Chewing the chicken, you can feel the tenderness of the meat and its juiciness. The gravy wasn't too salty, so it went well with the chicken.

The miso soup was a good way to wash everything down, rather refreshing.

Even though the price is a tad bit high, but the servings was very generous and you will really be able to fill up your tummy while tasting rather delicious food.

Oh yea, one thing, you need to be quite well-skilled in using chopsticks. The reason being that not all dishes come with spoons, like my dish, even though it comes with a bowl of miso soup. The bowl is small enough for you to drink the soup as though from a cup. So, well-developed chopsticks skill will allow you to pick up every single grain of rice from the bowl. Hehe... Do note that the Malaysian style of putting the bowl to the lips and sweeping all the rice into the mouth is not the proper way in dining with chopsticks.

The restaurant runs on basic Japanese language. So, if you have someone who is able to converse in a certain amount of Japanese, the dining would be rather interesting. We had the pleasure of having Jeah Loong-kun's presence with us and he knows Japanese!!! Haha...
