I know many of you out there are quite skeptical in having Japanese food now since the tragedy in Japan. You don’t need to worry about that as from what I heard, many of the Japanese restaurants in Malaysia now imports their ingredients elsewhere. For instance, Edo Ichi, the only Japanese restaurant in Solaris Dutamas imports their ingredient from other countries, i.e. Australia, New Zealand, Alaska, USA and etc…
Edo Ichi is a pork free Japanese restaurant and they are currently having a lunch promotion. I ordered their Unagi Kabayaki Set, priced at RM32.00. The portion is quite small if I were to compare it with other Japanese restaurants around KL. I know I will enjoy this better if Edo Ichi is more generous with the sauce for the unagi. Nevertheless, it was alright for me overall.
The Unagi Cheese Roll priced at RM28.00 is one of the specialty here. The roll are made up with the combination of crabsticks, cucumber and egg, carefully rolled with seaweed and rice, topped with a “tiny” slice of unagi and cheese.
Yeah, just some tiny slices of unagi were given. Quite disappointing if you ask me. The unagi slices were so tiny that the cheese overpowered the whole dish.
Edo Ichi’s Nameko Yakimeshi / Mushroom Fried Rice on the other hand was very good. It was really flavourful and yummy. One of the best fried rice that I’ve ever tasted. However this bowl of mushroom fried rice is a little bit expensive as a bowl costs us RM10.00.
For each set lunch ordered, you could choose to add on sashimi. We added a plate of Salmon Sashimi @ RM8.00. If you do not like raw fishes, there are other choices available, such as sushis or tempuras, also priced at RM8 each set.
I like their Chawanmushi as well. It was really smooth, just like our “tau foo fa”. Each set lunch comes with it, so it is not necessary to order it separately.
