I have read and heard of Ichiro Sushi Bar one too many times over the years but yet, I have not paid a visit until recently. They have been in current vicinity (inside Isetan Eat Paradise, 1 Utama Shopping Mall) for quite some time now and some said they serve one of the best (and freshest) sushi in town.

The vicinity has a sushi bar and a couple of tables which, at max, able to fit around 20 pax at one time.

The ordering was made easy as there was iPad at each table/ party for their usage. Their menu was simple, no-frills yet it has all the usual, mandatory offerings.

We were there slightly past 2pm which made us missed their lunch menu. We had the kaisen bara chirashi, 3 slices of fresh salmon sashimi, egg nigiri and DX Volcano Roll.

Kaisen Bara Chirashi

The Kaisen Bara Chirashi (RM28) was filled to the brim with fresh cuts of sashimi, prawns, fish roes, pickled gingers and cucumbers. Underneath all was the sushi rice dosed with slight Japanese soy sauce. Though it was a little steep in price, you would have forgotten about it the moment it arrives in front of you.

Salmon Sashimi

The salmon sashimi (RM18 for 3 slices) was thicc and fresh while the DX Volcano Roll (RM32) was exceptionally as it topped with fresh scallops, kani (crab) and a dose of Japanese mayonnaise.

Japanese Food at Ichiro Sushi Bar

Overall, the meal came to about RM103 (including a cup of cold green tea). Price wise, I guess you get what you paid for and in my opinion, it was definitely worth it though it would not be a weekly nor monthly affair.

Gong Cha was slightly late to the game but nonetheless, they should be taken seriously with their take – Brown Sugar Fresh Milk with Pearl.

The Alley

The Alley Brown Sugar Deerioca Fresh Milk

The Alley is no stranger when comes to brown sugar milk tea. Apart from the best seller – Deerioca Brown Sugar series, their Royal No. 9 Milk Tea is pretty good too.

Check out their Facebook for more info.

Tiger Sugar 马来西亚老虎堂

Tiger Sugar Brown Sugar Pearl+ Boba with Cream Mousse

Tiger Sugar has finally made their presence count in Malaysia on January 2019. Their Brown Sugar Pearl+ Boba with Cream Mousse is thicc and sinful due to the addition of cream mousse. The combination of pearl and boba adds interesting texture to the drink.

Fun fact : Did you know that pearls and boba are the same? They are just different in size.

Check out their Facebook for more info.

OneZo 丸作

OneZo Dirty Milk Tea

OneZo’s version of brown sugar bubble tea – Dirty Milk Tea is somewhat similar The Alley’s Deerioca series. Theirs lean towards lighter side in terms of flavour and sweetness as we are able to customise the sugar level. Nonetheless, their boba have good chew to it and they are one of the cheapest amongst others in the list here.

SoyLab Bean Looking For Him – Black bean soya with brown sugar and pearls

If fresh milk or milk tea is not your thing, SoyLab’s version might fit right up your alley as their’s consists of black bean soya as base.

Check out their Facebook for more info.

Royaltea 皇 茶

Royaltea Brown Sugar Pearl Fresh Milk

Royaltea’s Brown Sugar Pear Fresh Milk is somewhat alright – palatable but their portion is comparable, if not bigger than others.

Check out their Facebook for more info.


KOI Thé Brown Sugar Fresh Milk

KOI Thé’s is probably the most expensive of the lot. At RM15 (including pearls), it is somewhat underwhelming in terms of taste, for me at least. However, as one says, taste is personal preference and so… do try out and let me know what you think!
