I might have been selfish in sharing food places at times or another way to say it, I have forgotten to blog about it till I look thru my old folder. If you are craving for Japanese food yet you are a bit tight in pocket? well, there is this place I went so often with my ex-colleague and friends, is this Nihon Kai, Japanese Restaurant located at Old Klang Road which is a hidden gem in the area.

For this post, you might think I am being lazy, reason is  I have lost this receipt and its a combine pictures of many occasions I went there.

The shop is very hidden but yet they enjoy brisk business for lunch and dinner. One of the reason they are always full is their generous portion of serving at economic price.

There are 2 levels in the shop that mostly cater for 2 – 4 pax and if you have bigger group you will be seated upstairs. .

Eating Japanese food can consider everyone’s favorite, but how many of us are able to cook or make sushi? During my uni life at oversea, me and my housemate did try to make sushi ourselves by using our own logic to do it without find a proper recipe to go along with (which is very wrong) but then the meal turns out to be not so bad, the rice we did was using Japanese rice but not as sticky as it is compare to the restaurants.

This time besides eating nice sushi, now I had a chance to learn from the best from Chef Yanagida by teaching us make simple and nice sushis, eg: Nigiri Sushi, Tobiko Gunnkan Nigiri, California Roll and Inari Sushi. During the session, I had hands-on experience by in making the sushi, it was not that easy as I thought by looking at the chef at sushi bar wrapping it but I still prefer my responsible by just eating it.

One of the trick to make the rice sticky was to cook a . . . . . . (cannot tell) to make the rice sticky.

With Chef Yanagida vast experience he had come out with quality food with the Asian and Western Combination.

After the special sauce was cook, the sauce was pour into the rice and let it dry up. (part to ensure sticky of the rice and aromatic)
