yeah finally....IRASSHAIMASE

Looks like Japs food is growing in 1U...

I was there last week and we tried out the food station ay Isetan...
Walk around and survey all the stalls.. I heard most of the japs are shouting.....
"'IRASSHAIMASE" ... OSHHHH, OSHHHHHH......
then I just follow them n shout ..
YEAH  YEAH YEAH ... they look at me .. n smile ....
Majority all chefs are Japs........ this is something unusual......
for sushi zanmai, sakae sushi, watami ..  all staff are 100% local
So I guess the taste could be very authentic japs taste.....

first stop ........ Ichiro Sushi Bar...

Small area of sushi bar...
The shashimi salmon is really nice.. thick and fat...
Dragon roll....appearance kinda so so..
The rice is a bit messy.. not properly press..
I prefer the one from Sushi Zanmai...
Salmon & Avocado Roll....
same as the dragon roll the rice kinda messy..
and the avocado a bit hard ..
normally the avocado that I eat is kinda soft...

but the wasabi is not those grated type .. i like those that are fresh grated..
They are using Ipad to do the ordering..
save up the waitress cost ..
so they could afford more japs staff?

Kinda still hungry and wanted to eat some more......

2nd Stop...... MENYA MUSASHI.....


The menu .....
basically 3 type of ramen soup - shiro, kuro & aka...
Then come with small, medium and large size...
You need to order in the counter and the pay up...

there is a instruction guide teach you how to eat ramen..
basically u need to SLURPPPPPPPPP as loud as possible..
by the way we love the pepper .. red, black & white..
it is more fragnant than the normal black pepper..

Charshu Gohan..... lots of spring onion..
I love it and the char siu also nice...

I ordered the kuro Musashi Ramen...
the soup n the noodles are nice.. but the egg was slightly overcooked..

BTW there is a young "leng chai" jap in the kitchen that is in charge of cooking the noodles..
I see lots of girl look at him .. kekekeke.....
I ask my wife whether the guy leng chai or not.. she pause a while and look at him and then me..
She told me... nahhhh....I don't like young n inexperience kid .. she continue to eat the noodles ..
hmmm wat she really meant huh? O.O" 

nice.. shall come back for other stalls....

    1. u stay in shah alam?
      I think the best place is still the jj..
      so either i go to 1U or MV it is the same distance....
      but I prefer 1U.. which the car park fees is cheaper..

    1. i think those are not the profesional chefs..
      I also wonder why.. but quailty of the food is still ok..
      just only the appearance.. like that you say.. DAME (No Good)
      n Japs has all the quality standard... 5 Y...Kaizen..
