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.

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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

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

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

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.

In Penang, there are a few places bustling with alot of good restaurants that one particular place had attracted many people to visit with their seafront retailing concept which is Straits Quay. I have tried on a few restaurants available and Oh Sushi Japanese Restaurant is one of the latest restaurant that me and my friends went to hunt as they suggested its a great place and he know the chef. Of course I say YES!

Oh Sushi (1)

When I arrived, the interior and the name Oh Sushi Japanese Restaurant sounds pretty familiar only realise that I saw this brand in Mid Valley before and now they have expand it to Penang market that start operation since May 2011 . .

Oh Sushi (2)

Its fully pack on that weekend I went and its like 70% are reserved! Guess that they are pretty well known to Penangnites.

Oh Sushi (4)

Oh Sushi (5)

In their menu they have quite a huge range of roll, sashimi and many more to choose from. Price are pretty decent

Oh Sushi (6)

These are all the hungry people that before the picture taken they were already arouse by the smell of the food therefore they attach without waiting for me this round.

Oh Sushi (7)

Start off with some snacks to chew on while waiting for the rest to arrive. Koebi Kaarage @ RM 8 simple fried small shrimps that shower with some salt and nice to munch when it is served hot, crispy and crunchy.

Oh Sushi (18)

Then Tatt say their sashimi is a must order cuz its fresh so we hit on Salmon Oyako @ RM 38. With a few big slabs of salmon and by looking at the orange colour shows its a good sign of freshness and no doubt it is!

Oh Sushi (11)

Volcano Roll @ RM 36 find that its a bit over price with the portion they are charging as I have tried a very good one before with this price. Its too much mayo that not well burn overall its not bad la~

Oh Sushi (13)

Prawns been fried fresh and wrap eat along. While dipping with wasabi and first bite can taste that the prawn meat is still hot. King Prawn Roll @ RM 22

Oh Sushi (17)

SPicy Soft Shell Roll  @ RM 25

Oh Sushi (8)

Sanma Mentai Yaki @ RM 17.50

Oh Sushi (9)

Garlic Fried Rice been fried to fragrant, a bit dry to my linkings and every one just enjoy this. @ RM 13.50

Oh Sushi (10)

The star of the night is Wagyu Saikoro that being serve on a super hot stone, as can still hear the siziling sound after being served a while. The meat is so tender yet juicy and moist. The fats being served along is just perfect and aromatic with their special sauce.

@ RM 56 – Recommended

Oh Sushi (12)

Agedashi Tofu @ RM16

Oh Sushi (14)

Beef slices for our Sukiyaki . .:D

Oh Sushi (15)

Sukiyaki @ RM 48

Oh Sushi (16)

What you do is just take this thin slice of beef and dip it in for a while then you can enjoy eating it fresh! Sukiyaki pot soup is pretty good with a bit salty at the end taste and just cant drink much type as it will be too salty at the end. pretty good~

Oh Sushi (19)

So this is all of us and looking back at my picture, I look like I have gain so much weight back then . .heheh

Overall, the food in Oh Sushi Japanese Restaurant is pretty good yet I still prefer Sushi Tei (available now at Gurney Plaza), my all time favourite~ if you compare this kind of chain together.
