Whenever I’m in SetiaWalk Puchong and crave Japanese food, there are only two options to choose from – Bonbori on the first floor and Sushi Tei. While I like Bonbori’s bento, the service and waiting time isn’t worth it + it’s pricey. Sushi Tei serves decent fare; the only drawback is that it’s outlet doesn’t have Internet reception for some reason. Maybe they disabled it on purpose so people would focus on the food lol.
Mentaiko mayo inari (bean curd topped with codfish roe sauce)! To those who have never tried mentaiko before, it’s savoury and has the texture of cream cheese but with a fishy overtone. Mixed with mayo and coupled with sushi rice and sweet beancurd skin.. voila! A treat for the taste buds with every flavour. 🙂
For the main course, I had curry chicken karaage rice. The taste was okay, but the potatoes were hard and not cooked well imo. Curry sauce was good and went well with the rice. The karaage was perfectly fried, but the portions were so small T^T For RM18++, I don’t think it was worth it.

Father’s Day celebration at Avenue K, a newly opened shopping mall opposite KLCC. I was working til late last weekend, so the fam took a train and met up with me at the place. We checked out Avenue K’s food court, which is on the top floor. There are lots of stalls offering different cuisines from all over the world, from Vietnamese to Japanese, Chinese, Western fare and more.
The bro had omurice with fried chicken. Well I wasn’t hoping that it would be anything like the authentic Japanese ones (check out this awesome video!) but this was still disappointing. They should just call it ‘repackaged Nasi Pattaya’. The rice was infused with tomato sauce flavour and wrapped in a thin omelette sheet. If the egg had been prepared well it would have been fat and fluffy.
They have a No.21 Beef Noodles stall here! The original was a street stall in KL that became really famous and they started opening up franchises in shopping malls. I always go to the one at Lot10 whenever I’m in the Bukit Bintang area. For RM9 and a hefty portion, it was worth the price. The springy wantan noodles are topped over with zhajiang (minced beef sauce) and patrons can opt to have a bowl of beef balls or tripe (above), which includes the stomach, belly and intestines.
The beef belly was unbelievable. It was cooked til it literally had a melt in the mouth texture. I don’t have to say much about the stomach and intestine – cooked well and chewy.
Til next post!
