Flyday Forn (Food Porn) - Chapter 2 - Ichiban Izakaya Restaurant

I received this joke on SMS the other day...

WHO IS GUILTY? Wife dreaming in the middle of the night, suddenly shouts, "Quick, my husband is back!" Man gets up, jumps out the window and realises, "DAMMIT, I'M THE HUSBAND!"


izakaya1

Did I mention that I love Japanese food? (I also like Italian food a lot!) A couple of months back, I had dinner with some friends at Ichiban Izakaya Restaurant located in Hartamas Shopping Centre. It's just two shops away from the Starbucks in the mall. Very easy to find.

~ Appetizer ~

izakaya3

My first time tasting sake! Love it! It's quite mild actually. Tasted like... ermm... white wine?

izakaya4

My favourite is the fruity one.

izakaya5

You see, before Ichiban Izakaya, I'm not a sashimi fan. I don't take sashimi voluntarily.

izakaya9

But my friends 'forced' me to try this sashimi and for the first time, I'm gonna say this, "I love sashimi!!!" Well, OK, I love Ichiban Izakaya's sashimi! Why? Because it melted (almost!) in my mouth! And no fishy smell! Yes, totally fresh! That's why...

~Something tofu~

izakaya10

~Some Salad~

izakaya14

~Some so-so Gyoza~

izakaya11

izakaya12

Oysters baked with cheese, totally out of this world!!
Very the yummy!!! I kid you not!


izakaya13

Chawanmushi - more ingredients compared to the ones at Sushi King,
Genki Sushi, Sakae Sushi, Yo! Sushi blah blah blah.


izakaya15

Soft shell crab maki - nothing extraordinary about the taste.

izakaya16

Wagyu beef - OhMyGawd... very delicious... meat is tender,
succulent, tasty... another Thumbs Up!

izakaya18

Love the variety of sake (bottles)

Damage was RM200++ for three. Not too bad for such great food, huh? Next, I would love to try Kampachi Restaurant @ The Pavilion... anyone?? *wink*
