Edo Ichi @ Solaris Dutamas
July 30, 2010
Sooner or later, a Japanese restaurant had to surface at Solaris Dutamas. Thankfully, it's a worthwhile entry that features sterling service.
Complimentary starters of meaty fish (which we couldn't identify).
The sashimi selection is reasonably priced. We tried a set of seven varieties, with two pieces each, for 95 ringgit. Freshly flown in the previous day, these tasted flawless.
Salmon, crab stick, cheese & veggie maki. Fans of sushi rolls might appreciate this place; more than half a dozen varieties are available. Most sound fairly appealing.
Eel, cheese & veggie maki. The unagi was warm and juicy, but there seemed to be something missing here. Maybe a little avocado might have helped.
Cheese cubes, in between courses. Packed a pleasantly strong flavor, with a nice, creamy texture: not too firm, not too soft.
Scallops with cod roe. Looked unappetizing, tasted a tad too salty. But for those of us who enjoy ingredients that are all gooey and mushy, this might be real comfort food.
