We were shopping at Sunway Giza Mall, Kota Damansara when we met a friend who then recommended us to try Okuchi, a Japanese restaurant for dinner. Okuchi is just a short walk from Sunway Giza Mall and it is located strategically in the middle of Dataran Sunway.
VK, as usual ordered his Salmon Sashimi. This beautifully decorated sashimi was very fresh. I find the portion for this is a little bit too small. I guess good stuffs only comes in small portion. That way, we tend to treasure it more.
Our order, Soft Shell Crab Sushi comes next. In contrast to salmon sashimi, the soft shell crab isn’t soft at all. It was really crunchy in the middle.
We also ordered another version of the soft shell crab which was the Deep Fried Soft Shell Crab with Mayonaise. Like the earlier one, the soft shell crab was really good. Really crunchy.
Afraid that he might get hungry later, VK also ordered their meatballs. Personally, I find the texture of the meat balls a little bit too soft. It will be better if it was a bit more chewy. Sad to say, after a few bites, we got tired of it.
Instead of ordering my dishes ala carte, I ordered their Teriyaki Chicken Set. This set comes with a few slices of teriyaki chicken, assorted tempuras, miso soup, some vegetables, fruits and rice. At first, I thought that each set meals also comes with chawanmushi but unfortunately, they do not. So if you like chawanmushi, you must order it separately.
I love brinjal and prawn tempuras. Look how beautiful they are.
The set meal portion is quite small, so if you are a big eater, you should consider ordering some side items just like we did.
Other than sushis, Okuchi also serves shabu-shabu. The waiting time for this restaurant is quite short as the service was very fast. Overall, we had a decent meal at Okuchi.
