When back to Penang usually, I always wanted to go back street food but my friend always end up bring me to this kind of places. When they told me to dinner is at Island Plaza, I thought they must be joking till they said I must try this Japanese Restaurant – Ido Ichi Japanese Cuisine. Who can really resist Japanese Food?

Well, Island Plaza used to be one of the hottest spot to hang out 15 years ago before Gurney Plaza was constructed. One of a major place that most teenagers to hang out at that time, with many prime brands hosted there. Now they have gone major upgrading work to make it another look and feel.

Edo Ichi (1)

I got to know thru a friend that Ido Ichi Japanese Cuisine is actually under the group which Azuma Japanese Restaurant is also one of theirs. When I arrive, I am surprise by huge crowd and have to wait for 20 minutes for a table. Seldom will see this situation happen in Penang and its located inside Island Plaza, that makes me curious.

Edo Ichi (2)

They are operating 2-3 lots that make the dining area spacious with a few sections including sushi bar and close up area.

Edo Ichi (3)

Edo Ichi (4)

Price here are pretty decent and I compare to another of my favourite brand Sushi Tei in Gurney, its pretty much similiar

Edo Ichi (5)

 Then we ordered quite a lot for 5 pax and started of with Salmon Sashimi. Finely cut and its very fresh! @ RM 28

Edo Ichi (6)

For rolls, I would say that they have created their own signature style compare to others and tried both their Una Cheeze Maki @ RM 35 & Shake Mayo Mentai Roll @ RM 30. Both are equally good as ingredient are pretty generous and I like how the cheeze flavour makes it more unique with their own light sauce.

Edo Ichi (7)

I order something new that my friend have yet try is Tenderloin Cappaccio @ RM 35. It was all gone after I snap the picture. Thin slice beef that cut to perfection, with shoyu sauce and mayonnaise with the fine cut that makes it nearly melt in mouth. Order another plate again.

Edo Ichi (8)

Volcano Roll is not the best I have come across as I have tried better ones before. Overall, the cheese and mixture of ingredient in it is quite not bad for a Penang version. @ RM 28

Edo Ichi (9)

 This is the fellow who always wanted to maciam maciam places!

Edo Ichi (11)

Sukiyaki is pretty good too with the soup base quite salty as what I have learn, flavourfull that serve along with fine cut beef slice. It will be perfect during rainy season.  @ RM 30

Edo Ichi (12)

Yaki Gyuza @ RM 8 both item is nice to go along as Gyuza here won many places that I have tried, by pan fried the base perfectly to golden brown and ingredient in it a bit solid.

Edo Ichi (13)

Both Fried rice are equally good and I prefer more Scallop Fried Rice @ RM 12. Very fragrant with garlic with wok hei. We add extra garlic into our rice to make it extra kick. Seafood Fried Rice @ RM 12

Edo Ichi (14)

 

Edo Ichi (15)

By the time comes to this Avocado Guratan  we are all very stuff. Ended up I finish all this. If you love cheeze potato and some seafood this would be ideal for [email protected] RM 18

Edo Ichi (16)

Kimuchi Ramen turns out to be pretty good, mild spicy and sour end with thin slice of pork in it. Ramen is slightly overcook and if they can make it al dante then would be perfect bowl of noodle. @ RM 18

At the end of the meal, it was a very satisfying dinner with great food. If you are looking for some nice Japanese Cuisine, this outlet certainly would be one of my recommendation.

I am starting to like Setia Walk in Puchong to be appear another main joint of drinking and eatery place. Spreading out their lovely landscaping that is one of the main crowd puller that provides great ambiance which is something unique compare to other mall. Bondi Junction.

This would be my second time here as still find parking here is a bit confusing or there weren’t proper signage up yet at the moment. Last round that I came, I visited Sushi Tei and now came back here for second round, we are in hunt for one Mediterranean food located at Block F level one. First timer here looking for this shop, surely will be lost locating. Just look for Ding Tea, and its above it.

Bondi (1)

A simple casual dining place whereby you can just hop in anytime. A place whereby its decorated with simple hanging decorations, and why Australia flag is there, its because mainly the influence are from Australia, hence Bondi Junction is the name of the shop whereby its a place in Sydney.

Bondi (5)

Bondi (6)

Its pretty amazing that they have this open concept kitchen yet you don feel that the smoke from kitchen is coming out. Maybe its non-air condition and pretty well ventilation around the area that do not make us feel it.

Bondi (7)

A simple menu with good offerings for us to hunt from. Price of dish are pretty decent.

Bondi (8)

I have tried this previously when we first drop by after my meal at Sushi Tei and instally we fall for this Focaccia Bread with 4 dips @ RM25. Made freshly by the chef with only limited offerings available. When it was place onto the table, the aroma of the freshly bake bread with rosemary and olives dotting the flat loaf entrails into our nose and just couldn’t wait to get a bite of it. .

Comes with 4 dips: sun-dried tomatoes, feta cheese, black olives and balsamic vinegar, and I prefer the sundried tomato and feta cheeze are awesome combination.

Bondi (9)

Wild Mushroom Soup @ RM 11 are all in homemade style with fresh ingredients that cook on the spot. Its flavourful that we need not even add in any black pepper that the taste is already there. How could we resist the temptation of this.

Bondi (10)

Roasted Pumpkin and Red Capsicum Soup @ RM 11 would be something unique for the night as there are hint of little spicy pepper taste and both are equally good. In the end, we order the soup again for another round.

Bondi (11)

This doesnt look like pizza as the own version of Bondi Junction Meat LoversRM25 topped with turkey ham, pepperoni, minced beef, onions, capsicum, olives and mozzarella. The dough are prepared daily for pizza and made fresh. Its slightly different from any other pizza that I had as the crust is thin and near to bread. I prefer meat lovers more.

Bondi (12)

Bondi Special @ RM27 – with basil pesto, olives, sundried tomatoes, capsicum, pepperoni, egg, onions and mozzarella.

Bondi (13)

To me, super star of the night would be Beef Lasagna @  RM18. After one bite of this, it instantly hit onto my top chart as one of the best. Soft filling inside out with carefully baked melted cheeze on top, with chef special tomato base sauce that make it outstanding. -Highly recommended for Beef as I think it taste much better than Chicken.

Bondi (14)

Beef Bolognese Spaghetti @ RM15 Minced beef  in Napolitana sauce with basil and parmigiano. I think this is not bad as I had the lasagna first and I think it had overpower the taste this. Spaghetti is al-dante.

Bondi (15)

Most people would misfire this dish – Chicken Gordon Bleu @ RM30 for one of a simple reason that the chicken breast would end up very dry. As for here, it suprise us that its not dry yet still quite juicy and aromatic with cheeze & ham taste in it. Well done.

Bondi (16)

Stuffed Seafood Chicken @ RM30 is one of a unique this that I have come across as  pan-seared chicken roulade stuffed with chopped seafood served with pistachio sauce, greens and grilled herbed potatoes. Its a very well balance dish with greens, roasted potato and the sauce of pistachio taste unique. What makes it perfect is with red wine that pulls the taste up very well.

Bondi (17)

Roasted Salmon with Red Pesto @ RM32 a dish that looks very healthy to me. With colourful veggie and lemon for you to squeeze on.

Bondi (18)

Comes dessert time, rarely no one will say no.

Bondi (19)

Crème Brulee, Classic Apple Pie and French Lemon Tart, @ RM10 each.

Bondi (20)

At that point, we were pretty stuff and yet the picture of this Russian Benny @ RM17 – fatty salmon, mushrooms and toast with the thick creamy Hollandaise sauce keep calling our name. Its  agreat breakfast that we order 2 portion. Do let the waiter know you prefer runny yolk as one dish the yolk are pretty cook. Of course with this great breakfast would not be complete with. . . Coffee.

Bondi (21)

Coffee in Bondi Junction are pretty good. I love their Mocha and Flat white. They are price in between RM6 and RM9

Valentines is just around the corner and looking for something pretty simple with great food, definitely this outlet would be another recommendation by me even for ordinary dining with friends and family.

Sushi Tei is one of my favourite Japanese restaurant compare to a few in our Malaysia market. It definitely falls on personal preference. I was firstly expose to this brand when I was visiting my friend in Jakarta, Indonesia 6 years ago and they know that I love food, this was one of a Japanese Restaurant that they told me, die die also must try. Back in those time, I have yet to start my food blogging as just enjoy my food whenever I travel.

Love the range that they offer and its pretty unique on the combination and rolls that they have. At that time, KL have yet so many different types of Japanese Cuisine that is similiar to this range except 1 in 1-Utama that always pack with people.

sushi tei (1)

When I first saw this brand landed in Tropicana City Mall 2 years ago, I was very happy that finally it had landed in KL. Nevertheless the brand had establish itself well with a few outlets now available in Klang Valley and Penang. Of course what can we expect next? Try out their new menu for year 2013 onwards also at their latest outlet which is at Setiawalk, Puchong.

sushi tei (2)

The outlet interior is no difference from the rest of the outlet.

sushi tei (5)

Sunrise @ RM5.80, Bloody Sprite @ RM5.80

sushi tei (6)

Design of the new menu looks much better compare to the previous one. Choosing food would not be a problem as more pictures are in it now.

sushi tei (7)

Premium Yee Sang (for 8-10pax)@ RM68.80

sushi tei (8)

Premium really justify the price whereby it comes with cuts of salmon sashimi and prawns

sushi tei (9)

I must say that, I have tried a few yee sang for the past 2 weeks and I rate this is one of the top 2 in my personal list. If you do host any of your reunion dinner at home and lack of yee sang, this is one of a place to ta pau back. I am definitely getting 1 for my family. 🙂

Fresh ingredient and the special mixing sauce that pairs well with the fresh ingredient and did not over power it. A well balance with all the ingredient. REcommended~

sushi tei (10)

Ameabi Kaarage @ RM12.80, One of the signature dish that me and Ken always love to order or never miss is their Salmon Skin @ RM6.80. At the price of it we find it very reasonable, a great snack to start to get our mouth munching. Fried to crisp with every bite and do eat it while its serve fresh. You can choose to dip along with their mayo but we always love to bite it just like that.

sushi tei (11)

First dish from salad range already caught my attention with its chunks of tuna, salmon and squid on top of the salad. Sashimi Salad @ RM16.80. Something green and healthy, this is a appetizer that you shall  not miss. Not only filled with fresh sashimi, the kick that make the whole salad taste awesome is their very own dressing. Filled with light taste of vinegar, and chef special ingredient that make this dish gone in seconds. – REcommended~

sushi tei (12)

Another new item that are in the menu is Kaisen Ramen Salad @ RM28.80. To me it looks weird for the first time as I never have my ramen with salmon sashimi slices like that before. Its always with pork or chicken slice. Not only that, as there are 3 huge flab of crab meat that smack along on it too. The meat is cold and fresh, that once you had that slice you would want to finish the remaining 2 instantly.

Ramen texture is cook to the right texture and the sauce that make it pairs well. I think this would be best to share with another person.

sushi tei (13)

Chuka Fukahire @ RM 6.80, Ika Geso Tataki @ RM 11.80 &  Ika Okura @ RM 5.40

sushi tei (14)

We were lucky to be in the outlet at the right timing as usually fresh sashimi will arrage to most of the Japanese outlet on every Tuesday and Friday. We are here on Friday, therefore these are sashimi are perfectly fresh! Arima (4 kinds) @  RM59.80Tuna Belly, Yellow Tail, Sweet Shrimp, Raw Scallop

sushi tei (15)

Asama (5 piece)  -Tuna, Yellow Tail, Salmon@ RM35.80 

sushi tei (16)

There are also new rolls being introduce with Manguro Lover @ RM11.80,  Dynamic Roll @  RM16.80 & Lobster Salad @ RM12.80,. Among these 3, I prefer Maguro and lobster salad.

sushi tei (17)

Usually we have this with beef slice but this round they have added in another item Salmon Enoki Roll @ RM12.80

sushi tei (18)

Beef Teriyaki is a simple item that I prefer that the beef cubes cook till medium well, then I love mine added on with lots of garlic slices.

sushi tei (19)

Gindara Teriyaki is always one of my favourite that the cod being pan grill to perfect that its slightly crips on the outer layer yet the cod fish meat is well preserve that did not overcook. @ RM26.80, & Sanma Kabayaki @ RM14.80

sushi tei (20)

Gyoza @ RM9.80

sushi tei (21)

Golden Soft Shell Crab @ RM12.80

sushi tei (22)

Hotate Wasabi Mayo is not bad and if the wasabi mayo is a little more spicy then it would have been perfect.  @ RM8.80

sushi tei (23)

Ika Sugata Shio if the size of the squid is smaller or this size is nice to my liking, anything big I just cant take it. 😀 (just me) @ RM15.80

sushi tei (24)

Another item that I like is their Ikura Chawanmushi, very simple with salmon roe @ RM12.80Asari Sakamushi @  RM23.80Agedashi Tofu

sushi tei (25)

oh oh, when fried rice was serve, we all look down on it and why fried rice was serve after we had a awesome sashimi and rolls. This Choi Kara Fried RiceSpicy Fried Rice with Crab Meat  @ RM18.80 proves us wrong. Fried fragrantly, that is something simple and nice, written there spicy but its only mild spicy that bring the fragrance up. Those who need to have rice, then this is the new item that you must try. – Recommended~

sushi tei (26)

Another nice rice item for you is Tan Tan Don, comes with mince chicken meat, top with poarch egg and how I eat this dish is I poke the egg yolk then stir the whole bowl till its evenly mix. Then put in one bite into your mouth will be a well balance of yolky egg, slight salty and spiciness at the end. Something to entice your taste bud abit.  @ RM11.80

sushi tei (27)

Gyu Misoyaki @ RM15.80

sushi tei (28)

Special sauce to dip for the beef. I did it wrong in the first place and then I was taught properly by the waiter on how to get the best of this beef slice.

sushi tei (29)

First dip the fresh beef slice into the sauce then leave it on the hot plate for a quick turn. If you love yours medium well, then just flip both side about 8 second each and its ready to eat.

I did it wrong by did the beef slice then dip the sauce after that.

The difference is, did it the right way, the sauce will soak onto the beef slice and make it aromatic.

sushi tei (30)

Comes to desert I always thought my favourite would be green tea but this round their new product Yogurt Forest Berry @ RM7 steal the limelight. I prefer this over  Matcha Ice Cream & Sesame @ RM7

sushi tei (31)

Their new menu and new product being introduce, is something to look for when you visit this restaurant. You can try those that I recommend but again it comes down to my own preference. 😀 One of my favourite Japanese Restaurant. . .

Sushi Tei in Setiawalk is next to Roomates or nearby TGV cinema wing already.

I think that Food and Beverage industry in Malaysia are seriously booming with one franchise chain coming in after another, but this restaurant is no stranger to me as I was introduce by my friends when I was in Indonesia (click here for my previous post) ended up I rate this is one of the best Japanese Restaurant in Sushi Zanmai range.

They have 32 restaurants spread across Singapore, Bali, Bandung, Jakarta, Medan, Surabaya, Shanghai, Sydney that its popularity is growing in Asian’s country, they had also mark on Malaysia, with them starting their very first outlet in Tropicana City and now they had spread their wings to more local people by opening one at The Gardens and the latest launching outlets in, Pavilion.

Cameron Cheah, one of the local partners of Sushi Tei decided to introduce this restaurant chain to Malaysia last year, because he often noticed long lines waiting to enter a Japanese restaurant in a neighboring country. One day, curious to have a taste of what the fuss was all about, he jumped right in and joined the queue! As soon as he tasted the quality of its sushi, sashimi and cooked items – this young entrepreneur knew that he just had to share Sushi Tei with all Malaysians, that also had made me one of the regular in this restaurant too.
