There is some left over from my over bought of roast pork previous day. Then not sure what to do and craving for Kimchi Fried Rice (previous recipe here). then suddenly have they thought why not add in. So I turn it into Roast Pork Kimchi Fried Rice. Recipe as below:



120g SPAM
20 g Garlic
70 g onion
350g kimchi (2-3 weeks old prefer)

1 tbl spoon sesame oil
1 tbl spoon soy sauce


This round I enhance with more ingredient, like kimchi then final, add in 150gram of roast pork. Do a quick stir fry when your rice is about ready.

Make sure the colour of your roast pork turn to kimchi colour then it is then more than ready to take up. This shows that the kimchi taste had gone into the pork.

Of course need to top up with sunny side up!

There are a lot of SPAM and I got this bread as there were not many choices left. SPAM – Portugeese Sasuage – so so only this spam. Do avoid as it doesnt have the spam fragrant.

I only use 2 slice from the whole can cuz there is only 2 of us.


  1. Fried onion and garlic first, for about 2-3 minutes.
  2. Add in spam to fried for another 3 minutes
  3. add kim chi for a quick fry of 2 minutes
  4. Add in rice (do not use Basmati rice as it taste weird and the texture is not right) – normal jasmine rice should be ok.

Why when you eat some kimchi jjigae taste so good. I believe 2 main ingredients that make it outstanding is Broth/stock and kimchi. Broth can be many kind. Chicken, fish, pork and others. Up to you to add in. If you do not have, just add in more kimchi!

Gojuchang – is another important ingredient. That depends on you as they have a few flavours out there. Mine is Spicy gojuchang and there are 2 brands if not mistaken.

I did ask him before, or not only me, why come back to Malaysia since you are doing so well in overseas. He answered, because he is a Malaysians and still his home ground. He is proud to bring back this concept. Chef Yama specialties are sauces. He always mention would love the diners to enjoy same ingredient but different taste.

Food in here is great and it will give you another dimension of what to taste in sushi. The only thing is you might love it or don so like it as in the chef special menu, its much drench with sauce, there is where the sushi/sashimi boat come in handy, to tone down the taste. My preference for those are:

Waikiki Roll, Volcano Roll, Art of Maki to kick start off with . .
If you are more adventure with your sushi, then I would highly recommend this place to try out.

When you are in downtown shopping, in Pavilion, there are something new for you guys to explore is the newly renovated Tokyo Street located on the 6th floor in Pavilion. Its a section that house many Japanese eateries, Japanese products and some house hold goods for you to explore. After they have open quite a while, this is my first time being here and SukiYa is one of my favourite.

sukiya (1)

Under this section, the whole area is filled with Japanese ambiance with their look and feel of all those outlets.

sukiya (2)

The outlets that are in the middle section are all mostly build with Japanese wooden concept, and lanterns at the side of the shop.

sukiya (3)

sukiya (4)

Most of the restaurant here sell fusion food  . ..

sukiya (5)

Japanese Desert – Mochi Sweets.

sukiya (6)

Another Japanese Restaurant .. .

sukiya (8)

As for this round, we are trying out this outlet that offer buffet spread which is Suki-Ya : Eat all you can Sukiyaki & Shabu Shabu, which is more like a Japanese Steamboat. . .

sukiya (9)

The ambiance is not bad that is pretty well design that if you come in big group they can combine all the tables for you in one section.

sukiya (10)

Sauce wise is pretty limited in selection . . .

sukiya (11)

Healthy bar that offer a good selection’s of greens to be put into shabu shabu . .

sukiya (12)

sukiya (13)

sukiya (14)

There are only 3 choices of soup available, Shabu-Shabu which is more like a clear soup and I heard the table next to me mention that the soup is tasteless. . .then we opt for Sukiyaki and Kimchi Soup.

Among the 3, Sukiyaki is the best as the taste of the soy is pretty strong which reflects to the original taste I had before, not too salty and its quite aromatic. .  Recommended among those 3. . For Kimchi, under Japanese restaurant.. not as good as you tried in those Korean restaurant. So close one eye .. .

sukiya (15)

sukiya (16)

Then on the paper they teach you all the steps how do you do the best shabu shabu out .. 🙂

sukiya (17)

We opt for the healthy options and pour everything in . . .

sukiya (18)

Then you get free flow of thin slice, Lamb, Beef and Chicken . . .The best of all is Lamb follow by Chicken then Beef as the beef slice I find it taste funny or we rate it as a low grade beef slice!

sukiya (19)

For beef slice, its pretty simple and quick that you just take a slice and dip it for about 10 seconds then its done . .

sukiya (20)

Then we had the sauce as the Sesame sauce is GOOD that you must request and normally I eat most of my food with their special homemade chili sauce.. A bit sour, chopped with lots of garlic and a bit spicy, that pair well with all the meat that I have. ..

My friend taught that, take a raw egg and stir it well, then after the meat had cook, dip it and eat along with any sauce it just perfect!

sukiya (21)

Then would let you finish off with Ice cream . .

The service here is good as they have alot of staff on duty and our slices of meet constantly got refill and the best part is the manager drop by and ask you, do you want more refill which we had raise white flag as this would be the first time that the staff ask do you want more!

For a price like this in Suki-ya I would say its a buffet spread that worth a try as it only allow you to enjoy 2 hours dinning which is far more than enough.

Adult (lunch) – RM 29.80 ++
Kids (lunch) – 50% disc off buffet price

Adult (Dinner) – RM33.8- ++
Kids (Dinner) – 50% disc off buffet price

As previously we were busy shopping all day long (click here for last shopping post), till it start drizzling outside then we came into Siam Paragon – Ootoya Japanese Restaurant for a stroll to see how a shopping mall different from Malaysia.

After a short stroll, we were all starting to get hungry as Goft plan to bring us to street food opposite this mall, because it rained, we had to dine in. As we scout around for nice food, Goft recommed us 2 place which is  a place for steak Tony Romas, which is a big no no as it is available in our country . .then next she suggested:

ootoya (1)

After reaching the place and just by looking at their displaying set outside the restaurant, all of us become hungry.

ootoya (2)

Ootoya Japanese Restaurant that is one of her favorite place to dine also which is located directly next to the food court, that had this little open concept area nearby the food court. After I google up I also found that they have a few branches in Singapore.

ootoya (3)

Did not know there are so many people, and we were told to be seated and wait for another 4 more numbers then reach us. While waiting, and all of them were so hungry, and have to start hunting in menu to find what we want, and once we were seated down, the waiter did not even move away as we were pointing here and there for the order.

ootoya (4)

Price wise pretty reasonable that ranging from 120 bhat – 500 bhat.

ootoya (5)

I like their green tea because there are a slight burnt taste of brown rice that I always prefer my green tea to have.
