Aji Noren at Prima Tanjung...

Japanese restaurants have mushroomed on this island. To find one where food is resonably priced and good is not easy. We were recommended by a relative to Aji Noren and so far, no disappointments.

I had my usual mini Unadon & Tempura set. This is grilled eel. Most set comes with a bowl of salad, pickles, rice, a bowl of miso shiru (red bean soup) which is yummy, and two pieces of water melon.
Son decided to try their salmon sashimi and tempura set and he couldn't talk when he put a piece of the salmon into his mouth. Mmm...yummy it is sooo fresh and succulent was what he said after.


Hubby had salmon grilled with salt instead of the teriyaki sauce. This set comes with some green vegetables stir fried with butter.
Oh yes, we had an extra order of tempura moriwase. I really couldn't have enough with those that came with my set meal. The tempura, ooh it tastes heavenly. Tempura happened to be my favourite where Japanese food is concerned. Aji Noren serves the best. Even those that I had at Cititel, it didn't come near. Oh yah, Aji Noren closes on Monday (right, I went there and found this out heeeheee).

Tree Shade Weld Quay...

This is the sight that greets you as you walk into the place. Tree Shade eatery at Weld Quay. From seafood right to just plain omelete, all can be found here. The place isn't as nice as an airconditioned restaurant but the food, good is what I can say. The price, it is very cheap. The right place to head for when you are quite near your budget and still yearn for that home cooked style of meal.
What we had was their speciality the assorted egg custard (steamed egg). By far, the best I've tasted. The toufoo is another that deserved to be mentioned. Not the wet toufoo with gravy but the deep fried ones. Another dish that I loved here, the deep fried black pomfret (bawal hitam) is another to add to the favourites. The 'belachan' chicken is another nice bite. Together with the fried vegetables, would you believe that the price adds up to less than 40rm for 3 pax? Oh yah, we had their stuffed 'yau char kwai' too. (You can see it in the picture here, those longish thingy.) What more to ask for when the kitchen isn't functionable as yet, eh? (My kitchen is presently under repair!)It was a satisfying meal alright. Cheap and good and that is of course if you do not mind the condition of this place.....restaurant? Ah well, when it comes to food especially yummy food, the condition doesn't really matters. Enjoy your food here! :o)
