I was working on my birthday so the fam and I went for my ‘celebratory’ dinner the following day. Didn’t want to drive too far so we settled on going to D-Pulze @ Cyberjaya. It was a toss-up between seafood at Manhattan Fish Market and fast, cheap Jap food at Yoshinoya/Hanamaru Udon. We ended up having the latter because there were more choices for everyone to enjoy.
Yoshinoya is famous for their beef bowls, while Hanamaru Udon dishes out udon. The two shops share the same dining area and adopt a self-service concept where guests order at a counter, add on fried stuff before paying at the cash register. The whole fast food concept is really interesting and convenient as you don’t have to wait long for steamy, piping hot food.
I had their Ontama Bukkake Udon (small – Rm8.80) which came topped with a perfectly half-boiled egg with oozy yolk, lots of chopped spring onions and springy udon noodles in a savoury soy sauce-based broth. The portion is actually quite small for big eaters, but just right when you pair it with fried snacks.
Fried ebi (left) and chicken karaage. The shrimp was more batter than shrimp, but the karaage was good – crunchy on the outside, well flavoured and tender and juicy on the inside.
Bro’s teriyaki chicken bowl from Yoshinoya.
Pop’s chicken katsu, topped with a creamy mayo sauce and sweet onions.
Self-service cutlery and green tea refills.
If you’re looking for convenient, tasty and fast Japanese food, Yoshinoya/Hanamaru Udon is a good place to go.
