Yokozuna @ Fraser Place

July 22, 2010

This somewhat sterile-looking outlet serves basic Japanese fare.

Seafood udon. Loaded with fish, squid, prawns, mussels & even a scallop or two, but somehow, that couldn't save this from being a bland bowl of noodles that we could barely finish.

Tempura-battered Canadian sergeant-fish. The batter was excessively thick, while the fish was meaty but seemed too dry to suit this method of preparation.

Grilled cobia, drowned in an unappealingly cheesy sauce that would undermine this even if the fish had been fresher and juicier.

The sashimi and sushi constitute the best deal. Not prepared on order (instead, these are offered on a counter, supermarket-style), but they cost only RM3 and RM2 per plate respectively.

Taste-wise, very similar to Sushi King and other popular franchises...

... but since prices are even cheaper, these light bites are the key reason to head here. Also ideal for customers who want to avoid waiting for their food.
