Matsuki Japanese Restaurant Teppanyaki
[tag]Matsuki[/tag] [tag]Japanese Restaurant[/tag] serves by far the best teppanyaki I’ve ever had in Penang. Forget about Yaki Teppan in Bayan Baru I blogged earlier, this is the real deal. The teriyaki sauce is so thick and tasty, you will feel that you are getting your money’s worth.
The variety of [tag]Japanese food[/tag]s here is awesome. You can get almost anything you want here from sushi to teriyaki to sashimi.
This is the sushi sifu standing by to prepare sushi upon orders. It was quite enjoyable to see him prepare the sushis while we were having our dinner.
Our starter and green tea. I don’t know what exactly the starter was but it was meaty and tasted weird to me.. Can anyone identify it?
This is the thing you must try, Teriyaki Chicken. Matsuki certainly was not stingy with the teriyaki sauce as you can see. The color of the meat is so dark and looks rich and thick. Other restaurants would be stingy and pan fry the chicken with more oil.. making the dish watery and lack of taste. I didn’t really believe it when told it was this good.. but yeah it’s true.
Another set we ordered was the Curry Katsu Don.. which is translated to curry chicken chop rice. The curry gravy with lots of diced potatoes is served separately. It’s quite unique don’t you think?
I don’t know how authentic this Japanese curry is, but it certainly tasted good and different from our local curries. It’s thick, not too spicy and I don’t think coconut milk was used. The chicken chop’s portion is huge and because I enjoyed it so much, I ordered an extra bowl of rice.
Oh yeah each set comes with miso soup, salad and fruit. I think it’s a better deal considering it’s the same price of RM16-18 you pay for a set in YakiTeppan.
Matsuki is located along Cantonment Road, which is opposite Bangkok Lane. Highly recommended if you want to have good [tag]teppanyaki[/tag]. And best of all if you come during lunch time, there’s a complimentary scoop of Haagen Dazs ice cream for every set meals ordered. And one scoop of Haagen Dazs ice cream would already cost like RM5-6 so it’s really worth it!

Ayam Penyet AP, an affordable restaurant serving the delicious and addictive Indonesian cuisine called Ayam Penyet, loosely translated to smashed fried chicken. It is a perfect alternative to the already over-mushroomed kopitiam franchises. Not only the quality is getting worse, portion is getting smaller and prices are always increasing. Imagine, after I finished my cuppa

Old Green House restaurant (老青屋) is a popular place among Penangites to have Hokkien Mee (or Prawn Noodle in other Malaysian states) either as dinner or supper.

For a cheap and tasty meal, D Kuang Seafood Restaurant at Kampung Baru (Bukit Mertajam) would be a great choice. Here, a dinner for a family of four would cost only a little over RM50 and you could have five dishes inclusive of seafood, meat and vegetable. Sounds good? Read on. Kung Pao Mantis Prawn
