Eatomo Food Co
A new kid on the block located in the busy food hub Taman Desa. This is a no-frill California inspired eatery that serves seafood creative fresh seafood airflown from Chile, Norway and Tsukiji Market, Japan. Pick you choice from the seafood display as you enter the premise; Ayu, Hamachi, Tai (Red Snapper), oysters, clams, mussels… depends on the day’s availability. If you are lucky enough, you may catch a sight of Uni, the sea urchin. Of course, you can always check out their facebook page for the day’s catch and go grab them before they are sold out. I suggest you to check out this place at lunch time where the catches are still available. There was one time I hopped over at dinner time and found that most of the fresh catches were sold out.
Truffle-infused Edamame (Rm 5.9)
Dosed with salt and pepper, and drizzled with truffle oil. I think I should invest on truffle oil. It makes everything so fragrant. So does this one, on each bite you get to sniff and taste the flavour of truffle oil.
Nagoya tebasaki Wings (Rm 15.9 for 6 pcs) has got my vote. Coated with soy flavour and garnished with sesame seed. Very well marinated and it has got the umami-ness flavour that no one can resist.
Salmon Sashimi (Rm 19.9)
Fresh salmon from Norway.
Salmon Toro (Rm 19.9)
Fatty belly with beautiful marbles.
Tai Sashimi (Rm 23.9)
Red snapper airflown from Japan
House Ceviche with Guocamole (Rm 24.9)
A made-to-order dish with mixed sashimi and seafood ceviche (the seafood are “cooked” with lemon/lime juice; served with corn tortilla chips. A great go with the crispy tortilla chips. It was pretty refreshing but I find it lacked of extra citrusy ohmp to me.
California Poke Bowl (Rm 19.9)
“POH-keh” bowl seems to be an IN trend now. A traditional Hawaiian-inspired dish, with bite-size pieces of raw fish marinated with soy sauce and placed them on the rice. It is quite similar to Japanese chirashi bowl but poke bowl is much simpler to assemble. And this California Poke Bowl served in Eatomo consists of mixed sashimi, poke marinade, guacamole, crab salad, masago, spicy mayo and lots more. Spicy, tangy and mushy; you have all the texture filled in this bowl.
Wok-fired Spicy Gyutadon (Rm 18.9)
Prime Aus beef tongue fired up with 3-chili spicy shoyu garlic sauce and served with miso soup. The beef tongue slices were thin, wok-fried with the spicy shoyu sauce with real wok hei. That spicy savoury beef slices are to die for. And that fragrant bits of garlic oil that touches the rice. Ohh lala, so heong so fragrant. It was so good and we had 2 helpings of this. Must order if you are a fan of beef and its tongue.
Gyudon + Onsen Tamago (Rm 16.9)
Prime Aus beef slices in shoyu mirin onion saice served with sous vide onsen egg and miso sauce. A stir of the onsen egg gave the smoothness to the beef slices and rice.
Salmon Ikura Don (Rm 23.9)
When the Norwegian salmon met the Hokkaido salmon roe…
We had our version served with salmon belly because they were out of salmon slices that night. My all-time favourite in any Japanese restaurant, fresh sashimi slices with the popping-fun ikura. Just a small disappointment, the rice wasn’t vinegar-ed enough and for the price to paid for, I wish the portion comes a little bigger.
Tori Namban Bowl (Rm 12.9)
Lightly battered juicy chicken fillet coated with sweet and tangy sauce, served with homemade tartare sauce and miso soup
Oyakodon V2.0 (Rm 12.9)
Panko-crusted chicken skewers with sweet and savoury onion egg sauce and served with miso soup
