Review: Cheap Japanese Eats @ Sukiya Tokyo Bowls and Noodles, IOI Mall Puchong

While not authentic by any stretch, there are many cheap and tasty ‘Japanese’ inspired outlets all over the Klang Valley, if you need a quick fix. One of these is Sukiya Tokyo Bowls and Noodles, which has recently opened up a branch in IOI Mall Puchong.


Tucked along food street, the small albeit cosy establishment boasts hues of red, white and Japanese-inspired decor.



They’re currently having a promotion with rice dishes below RM10. Can’t say the quality is top notch but it offers plenty of bang for your buck. (Above) Pop’s chicken teriyaki katsu.


I ordered their signature beef bowl aka Spicy Ontama Gyudon, which came with a generous serving of thinly sliced beef over rice. For its price, the beef quality was good, although I don’t know where ‘spicy’ came in because it had zero spiciness. Nice ratio of onions. The onsen egg was served separately. Added on a ‘set’ with a side of chicken gyoza, miso soup and tea, for mum, coz she eats like a bird.

All in all, cheap, fast Japanese bowls for when you feel like eating some Japanese but don’t want to fork money out for expensive sushi.

Food Review: Cheap, Yummy Beef Bowls and Ramen @ Sukiya, IOI City Mall Putrajaya

Moo and I were at IOI City Mall Putrajaya last weekend for some shopping and to grab lunch. There are lots of affordable but tasty options available, such as Sukiya, which serves fast, cheap Japanese food like beef bowls and ramen.

We shared a set for RM17+, which comes with a green tea drink. Moo had the ramen with chicken, which she said had a texture like wanton noodles.

I opted for the beef bowl with extra onsen egg (RM2.50). Stir fried onions and thin sheets of springy beef in a sweet savoury sauce was topped over a nice fluffy bowl of rice. The beef is of good quality, although the onion portion was a little excessive. For the price point, there’s nothing to complain about though.
