I rarely go back to the same restaurant twice because I have always believed in trying out new places. But after a string of Japanese food mishaps recently, I thought it might be a good idea to stick to trusty Yuzen for the time being. And I am glad to say that they didn’t disappoint at all in my last couple of visits.

Yuzen Grilled Squid

For first timers, here are two dishes that I’d personally recommend besides the usual sashimi and sushi. The first is their signature teriyaki squid @ RM22.50, perfectly grilled and served with their uniquely prepared dipping sauce made from the squid’s ink and roe.

Yuzen Cha Soba

Cha Soba Quail Egg

Secondly, Cha Soba @ RM15. We have never been a fan of this cold noodle until we tried Yuzen’s. I guess the higher quality of soba and tsuyu they use really make a difference.

Salmon Tataki Roll

Salmon Tataki Maki @ RM28 – expertly wrapped and the pieces hold together nicely without falling apart. We also like that it wasn’t heavily drenched in sauce to allow the natural flavor of the seared salmon to come through.

Yuzen Fried Oysters

Kaki Fried @ RM18 – fresh, plump and still juicy on the inside.

Yuzen Garlic Fried Rice

Garlic Fried Rice @ RM8 – a decent rendition at best if compared to the one we had at Gyukingu.

Yuzen Chicken Teppanyaki Set

Like most Japanese restaurants in town, Yuzen also offers a couple of sets at affordable prices. All of them come with a side of thick cut salmon sashimi, chawanmushi, sauteed vegetables, salad, soup and a a slice of watermelon. The prices range from RM32 to RM45 depending on the main dish. Shown above are their Salmon Basket and Chicken Teppanyaki set.

All in all, if you’re looking for a new yet inexpensive Japanese restaurant to try, Yuzen should fit the bill. I honestly believe that they deserve a lot more attention than they are getting.
