Miyako @ Grand Dorsett Subang

July 9, 2010

There's no lack of Japanese restaurants in Subang, but not many are based in hotels.

One of the highlights here is an all-you-can-eat dinner available on Tuesdays through Thursdays. Some items, such as the sashimi and sushi, are spread over an ordinary buffet counter, while other dishes can be ordered from a two-page menu.

A heap of unagi got us excited, but alas, it had languished far too long in the pot. Lacked the moist, melt-in-the-mouth texture that we love in eel.

Grilled black mushroom in lemon soy sauce. Well-prepared, but unmemorable.

Grilled cod fish (less succulent than cod tends to be) & deep-fried potato stuffed with prawn (pretty crisp and not too oily).

Beef with butter sauce (not top-grade meat, unfortunately) & simmered eggplant with minced chicken (comfort-foodish).

Yakitori (tender and meaty) & vegetable rolled in beef (forgettable).

California hand rolls. Better than Sushi King's, at least.

Vegetables & sliced beef in sukiyaki sauce. Tasted home-cooked, in the best sense.
