Weeee… I am back to backdated again. Yup, my boyfriend’s birthday was like… roughly a month ago and I actually planned a birthday dinner bash at the actual day but since his parents are leaving to some place else, I postponed my plans a day later. So, we went dinner with my boyfriend’s family at Tokyo G to celebrate.
From what I know, this place was previously owned by Shushi Groove… which I didn’t have the luxury to try before they change name. I’ve always like the renovation cause it looks… er “COOL” from the outside and I can’t help to notice the walls and how green the area is.
So wee…. I finally get try out Tokyo G. I actually have quite high expectation from the outlook of the shop and of course their “modern twist” to conventional food.
Our dinner starts of with the Chawamushi, which I personally think has strong egg taste however, it seems to be a little overcooked and seriously doesn’t tasteless… in terms of, it’s neither salty or sweet.
My boyfriend’s brother ordered the Chicken Katsu Curry (RM14.90) which in my opinion tasted pretty standard. It is not exactly the yummiest every Chicken Katsu Curry… but great enough to spark my fire. My boyfriend ordered the Ebi Don Buri (RM15.90). Yup, he is always a ebi tempura lover and most of the time… this is what he ordered. I quite like this dish. It would be like perfect if the egg and sauce is salty instead of sweet. I just love how they put those crunchy bits from the tempura in the rice. It seriously added texture in this dish.
I ordered the Mayonnaise Dream Roll (RM10.90) to share. I love it. I love how they cleverly cook this. It’s raw salmon in the center wrapped with seaweed and rice at the bottom, topped with sauce… which I would think consist of tousand island, mayonnaise and cheese in it and ebiko on the top. Yummy… saliva dripping!
However, the Deep Fried Gyoza was quite a disappointment to me. The dough seems to be a little thick. And I don’t know… somewhere, somehow the taste and texture of the entire gyoza just didn’t mix along well in the mouth.
If anyone is looking for THICK slices of sashimi, I guess Tokyo G is the place to go. But becareful of what you wish for… cause thick slices of sashimi can be really gross to swallow. Yup, this is the case when we order the Sashimi Combo (RM29.90). Each slice is really thick. So thick that I myself felt gross chewing… especially the tuna slices. The thickness of the tuna slices was like around 1.3cm each. Grrrr.. scary!
The Ziggy Roll (RM12.90) is one of the dish that I didn’t try out as I was busy chewing the sashimi and no one else except deon’s mum eats sashimi 🙁
The Godzilla Roll (RM15.90) is lovely as well. Yup, this long roll filled with ebi tempura in the center wrapped with rice, salmon slices and sweet mango! I love how the mango and thousand island compliments the dish.
Deon’s dad loves teriyaki chicken… however, this “modern twist” restaurant does not serve big chunky teriyaki chicken. The only thing that has teriyaki chicken in it was the Teriyaki Chicken Roll (RM8.90). I personally think the chili flakes on the top over power the entire dish.. to the extend that I could hardly taste any chicken taste.
I would say the experience and ambience is great… except the fact that we can’t lean back and apparently, facing the fancy lighted wall can really cause headache and discomfort while eating. I think the staffs were friendly and nice… but the service is seriously slow.
