Rakuzen’s Sunday Lunch Buffet
This was our first small-gathering after Khee is back from India for her holiday.
I drove over to Yen’s house for a meet-up and thanks to Chris for driving us to the dining place. Once Khee had herself into the car, she kept telling us that she was very tired, very sleepy, tired to talk to us and wanna sleep for a while. However, all along our journey traveled, she was the one who kept talking Non-Stop. Wasn’t she tired?!
The long awaiting day has yet arrived. 09 September 07 marked a memorable day for us. Believe us, for this gathering, me and Christine have planned it for a month. We have made the reservation 3 weeks ago. We were afraid of cannot-get-ourselves-seatswithout booking because this place would be crowded since it offers the only lunch buffet (from 12pm to 3pm) on Sunday.
Environment around and the Cutlery
The lunch buffet costs only RM 55++ per pax. We don’t have to walk around to get the food. What you have to do is read and select from the menu and order from the waiter. The waiter will serve you up the food in mini mini dishes right in front of you. Great, I could sit back and enjoy the cosy ambience while waiting for the food.
刺身盛合せ assorted sashimi — there were tuna, salmon, white fish. They were all fresh and juicy.
ししゃも Grilled Smelt were delicious. There were whole stomach of roe in the fish.
チキン照り焼 Chicken Teriyaki, the meat was very tender
中華いいだこ Seasoned Baby Octopus, 中華珍味 Seasoned Scallop, and チリイカ Chilli Cuttlefish. We did actually ordered 中華くらげ Seasoned Jelly Fish but it never turned up!
揚げだし豆腐 Tofu Tempura with Sauce, tofu were very soft.
中華わかめ Seasoned Seaweedwas really appetizing
すき焼き Beef in Sukiyaki-style looked appealing but I couldn’t take it. I tried this once while I was in Japan for Student Exchange Programme years ago. My host mother cooked me a great pan of Sukiyaki with lots of mushrooms (additional with a variety of fungi and vegetables) and beef. Love it~
枝豆 Edamame, Boiled Green Soybean
キムチ鍋 Kimuchi Soup-base Hot Pot with Seafood
ソフトシャルクラブ Soft Shell Crab
Overall, I was quite enjoyed the meal with my lovely friends and had wonderful ‘lessons’ from Eldrick (Yen’s darling) and Velix. A little dissatisfactory was that the food turned up rather slow and what I have ordered never turn up. I love Japanese food a lot and this place serves fresh and delicious Jap food.
