Since we are already in the holiday moods, we decided to go out to have an early Christmas celebration.... It has been ages since me and Jo had a proper Japanese dine in...
Cue from chleong.net (http://chleong.net/blog/?p=472), I decided to try out Umai-Ya's branch at The Place, Damansara Perdana (http://www.umai-ya.com/). Thinking it's just going to be one of those
lame typical "traditional" Japanese, where the food is gonna be expensive, yet so so quality...
Boy was I wrong.
It was good. Seriously good. How good? The ingredients are the most freshest I have tested in a restaurant (and that's including non-Japs as well). I had the Umai-Ya Bento Set (RM50), and it had the mother-lode of everything I would expect. From super duper nicely cut fresh Salmon sashimi, to Chawan-mushi, to cold noodle, to Eel/Unagi, to Tempura, to Miso soup, and even green tea icecream. And they don't just impress with quantity, the freshness of each element really surprised me. Definately coming back for more.
