    In terms of quality, I do agree that Rakuzen tops the popular choice for really traditional Japanese grub, I guess they (the bona fide chefs from Japan) really take time to prepare every dish with attention to details..ambience is good too, tho' a little overcrowded with diners most of the time.

    Just had dinner at Agefuku Taipan again, we ordered the Agefuku Bento, a grilled salmon fish head with salt, a saba shioyaki and an unagi don. Bill came to rm111, not too costly for fine dining I think, and the food was ok. We received complimentary macha jelly at the end of the meal, quite nice.

    For something quite similar and slightly more affordable, Zen in Pyramid is the place. Their Sunday buffet, where one order from the buffet menu ala carte is value for money. Heck, even a certain state MB and his party thought so when they had their buffet there a few Sundays ago. Couldn't see any halal sign though I was assured it was pork-free.

    Anyhow, you get free desserts if you have the Sunway Pyramid card, which you can obtain FOC from the shopping complex reception.

    On a similar note, the best Pork Bone Soup Ramen I ever tasted overseas has just opened in Pyramid - Ajisen Ramen. Not sure whether they follow the Tony Ramos route in halalland.

    Was at Zen's like a year ago, but it was full house and since then hadn't had the opportunity to check it out again. This weekend perhaps, might give it another go. Or else, the ramen at Ajisen sounds pretty good.

    Thanks for the recommendations SunwayK.

    it's always nice everytime when other people paid for it

    We tried Zen recently, 3 of us adults and the bill came to abt RM500. Maybe bcos of the ala carte order. Service was so so only la. But they have smoking area though and food quite good..

    Mon, weekends, advisable to call ahead for reservation -03-749 249 22

    For a party of 3, for me personally, the damage seldom reach 3 digits. The dinner bentos, which are good value are priced from $22++ to $50++. It consist of rice, miso, cawanmushi, pickles, appertiser of the day, fruits and the main dish -sufficient for one, but some say two. Ocha is on the house.

    They have two menus, one with local pricing and more down to earth. The other, more specialised with imported seasonal stuff, perhaps priced for the Yen. If a meal of Matsusaka beef can cost RM300 in Kichijoji, I don't need to jeopardise my heart with either the price or the marbled fat by ordering from that menu.

    Thanks for the number to call SunwayK. I wish my first visit to Zen would include the Matsusaka beef which I've not tried, heard that it's quite popular and incredibly sweet, more in demand in Japan than the Kobe beef? and altho I'm a big fan of beef, I have not tried the kobe beef either. I'm looking forward to it.

    A "TOUGH" Time at The Windmill

    Had dinner a while ago at The Windmill steak house (opposite The Subang Sheraton). The X'mas decoration and the candle lights gives the place a good festive feeling. Service by the attentive staff was also good and should be complimented. Wifey ordered the set dinner, which is Roast Turkey with cranberry sauce... quite a generous helping and it costs RM59.90.

    I went for the tried-and-tested and ordered a Cream of Mushroom soup and a medium rare T-Bone (RM42.90).. OMG the T-bone was tough, really tough that I couldn't cut the steak despite trying very hard. It was tough!

    I also found the steak well done although I asked for medium rare. In the end I had to ask for a replacement and not wanting to take another chance (my wifey has already finished her turkey!) I asked for Rib Eye medium well. Again, the steak came out well done and was just a small piece... hmmm...

    They didn't the commercial English Mustard but the wasabe-based type probably made in the kitchen, a bit dry and lumpy just like the green wasabe except this is mustard-colored.

    Sadly too, they have run out of bacon for the baked potato....

    I have to think twice before going to The Windmill again....

    Same people, different name. The sushi and the grocery outlet, located besides Zen, belongs to the same management as well.

    As for Ajisan Ramen, went there yesterday. Good and bad news.

    Bad News first, at 3.00 pm, they told me that the house speciality Ramen was sold out and the place was not even packed. Something wrong somewhere. The sushi and hand rolls are pricey, in fact, very pricey.

    Good news, they didn't follow Tony Ramos path, still authentic style, same as overseas, which means non-halal. And they are giving 20% off during the opening. Except for the sushi, the other dishes are more reasonably priced. You can't go wrong ordering those with the thumbs up sign in the menu. And the set meals are good value, less than RM14 per set.

    Own made X'mas feel for breakfast

    Go around everywhere also hardly hear them play X'mas song around the complex. Only see the deco's around is nice but it would be nicer with some X'mas song added to it.

    So for breakfast cooked 2 packet of maggie mee w/ fried egg - can also add turkey/ham/bacon to it along with a X'mas CD. Esp with such gloomy weather this morning. Such nice feeling. Go work late also worth it.
    Believe yourself, believe what you can do
    Keep on going & stay happiee

    Speaking of instant noodles, whatever happened to the Myojo mi goreng? It vanished some 2-3 years ago I think. I remember when I was in England I would go out of the way just to get some. My comfort food.

    Over the weekend went to Penang but along the way there, went stop over at Bidor for breakfast for their famous wantan mee & their wu kok. Their wantan is really big & it has prawns in it too. That shop is long there already famous for tourist / passer by to get a break.

    Then next stop is in Bukit Tambun non other than their seafood. Ordered:

    1. Black pepper cray fish
    2. Steam red snapper w/ garlic & ginger
    3. Salted egg crab (very small)
    4. Bamboo sambal prawns
    5. Lala soup (siong tong)
    6. Brinjal & tofu (the brinjal skin all removed) - tis is really good
    7. Fried oyster - very small oyster

    All this for only less than Rm180 for 8 pax.

    After a good lunch - we headed straight to Penang.

    We had our dinner in Gurney Drive where everyone is tired & too lazy to drive any further:

    1. Rojak
    2. Char Kueh teow - not nice at all
    3. Claypot chicken rice shark fin soup
    4. Assam Laksa
    5. Grilled fish - very thin slice & sauce is too sweet (not worth it)
    6. Fried oyster - yes, again !!!
    7. Cockerel - just steam it only
    8. Kueh teow soup
    9. The apom with kaya & corn & other varieties in it
    10. Coconut is not to be missed there
    11. The chee cheong fun w/ rojak sauce

    Sunday morning went to Pulau Tikus for breakfast:

    1. Char kueh teow - which is so much better than day before
    2. Original apom & the crispy apom
    3. Prawn mee / hokkien mee - not very good
    4. Roti babi - really nice, every table also has it
    5. Fried tang hoon (glass noodle) & fried mee suah (something different which can't find it in KL)
    6. Chee cheong fun w/ & w/o rojak sauce

    For lunch went down to Penang road which is along Cititel Hotel:

    1. Nasi kandar Line Clear which is in a lorong & to my surprise many people are there in Q to get their nasi kandar. Not only that, the man who serves there can speak fluent cantonese & hokkien which is much better than most other chinese around. That is the most satisfying nasi kandar I had after a long time since I step into Penang.

    2. Walk further down to get a good & refreshing cendol. The assam laksa seems to be very nice too but then we're too full to have it. Probably next time when i go down again.

    Total spending on food for 2 person on average is about RM100 for 2 days and all the food I've listed out.
    Believe yourself, believe what you can do
    Keep on going & stay happiee

    IMHO, the best or just as good NK can be had here within Klang Valley..I've mentioned before in cari makan topics...but nevertheless whilst in Penang..might as well lor!.. I must have spicy food once a while..ada ommph!!! BUT I WON'T patronize one such shop!.. freaking gahmen tax add-on to my displeasure!.

    That Penang Road Cendol was available here at Giant USJ..and maybe by some other local franchisee's?..unsure if its still available here...me seldom go Giant nowadays..
