Sumo Japanese Restaurant @ Subang Business Centre, USJ

salmon-sashimi

I only got to know about Sumo Japanese Restaurant after they approached me to photograph food required for their restaurant’s new menu. Yeah, I know what you’re thinking, my photos aren’t great and I am not a professional, which is why I turned it down in the end. Even though the project did not kick off, I was glad I had the opportunity sample some of their food during the project’s initial discussions.
Anyway, I am not going to lie to you: the meals were complimentary but I honestly thought the food was good. Hence SL and I returned as paying customers a few days ago to celebrate my birthday.

Salmon Belly Sashimi by vkeong  on 500px.com

Sumo serves very fresh salmon and that is also the main reason that got me hooked. The Salmon Sashimi Belly @ RM30 seems expensive for the portion but if you compare it with other Japanese restaurants, the serving size and price are actually similar.

The Rainbow Roll @ RM19.90 is a combination of tuna, white tuna and salmon served with a creamy and sweet Tobiko (fish roe) Mayonnaise sauce. The rolls have a slightly crunchy texture at the center and taste delicious on their own, but it is the rich dipping sauce that makes the dish so satisfying. Personally, I like this a lot and I feel it would suit those who have strong taste buds.

F4 Fish Head Restaurant @ USJ, Subang Jaya

Now, before you get the idea that this fish head curry restaurant belongs to the now-defunct Taiwanese boy band F4, let me just tell you they are not the owners. In fact, this popular restaurant used to operate at Chan Sao Lin before moving to Subang Jaya – not sure how long ago though. Like many of you I am also baffled at the name choice of “F4″ but I think we could all agree it is rather catchy and easy to remember lol. Like Brother Yat, F4 Fish Head Restaurant is pretty hidden within the Subang Jaya Industries Park, one of the least places you would expect to find good food.

Also, this is the place you would want to come as early as possible especially during weekends, as you can see the crowd could get really crazy even they are almost as big as a multipurpose hall.. Service during peak hour is not an issue because they are quite efficient, but finding any free tables could be a problem.

Pondok Satay – Excellent Satay @ USJ, Subang Jaya

It is quite difficult to find a satay restaurant in Klang Valley which is able to rival Haji Samuri’s Sate Kajang. So when a close friend mentioned of a very good satay restaurant called Pondok Satay in USJ, I went to try it immediately the next day. With a GPS in hand (thankfully), I managed to find the place with relative ease.

My first thought when I saw Pondok Satay was “why is it so hidden??” Because the shop itself is not visible from the main road, and you actually have to go behind the shop lots to find it.
With such limited exposure no wonder the place rarely receive any mention. Another question mark for me is the price of the satay – 62 cents for a stick of chicken satay? Why the two cents lol.

After placing our orders, the guy went to prepare our satay.
