Yakitori is commonly known as Japanese skewered food. But back then, it was known as Japanese-type grilled chicken. I guess times have changed over the years (or decades) whereby people got really creative and started to experiment all sorts of food they can get hold of, which pretty much explained for the vast variety of skewered food that are available these days.

Sumi-ka Yakitori Restaurant

Like most of my food explorations, it was through word of mouth and a small gathering that I got to know this place which serves pretty good awesome yakitori.

Sumi-ka Yakitori Restaurant, SS15 Subang Jaya

Occupying a small shoplot in Subang Jaya, you know you are getting good stuff when it is managed by a Japanese and a team of dedicated staff.

Edamame

Cabbage

Pork Bacon wrapped Shitake Mushroom Yakitori

Chicken Cartilage (Nankotu) Yakitori

The menu is simple and straightforward with pork, chicken, beef, seafood and vegetables are all available for selection. The price is between RM4 – RM9 per skewer / stick.

Chicken Meatballs Yakitori

Gyumiso Yakitori

The highlight of that day was Gyumiso (as shown above). Juicy yet tender, it was just pure awesome.

Pork Belly Yakitori
The pork belly was pretty good too, thanks to the waiter’s recommendation. As you can see, there were no vegetables (except for the free cabbage, edamame and pork-wrapped enoki mushrooms) as we were all in mood for meat, meat and more meat.

Beef (Gyumiso) and Pork Yakitori

There were more dishes but due to hunger and pure indulgence, they did not make it to photos.

All in all, we were satisfied with the meal. The total bill was close to RM600 for 7 pax. Expensive? Yes it was… but there’s nothing much to complain for the delicious food we had and the wonderful session we enjoyed.

My fondness for a good ’gourmet-ish’ burger has been a never-ending one. The first time I had a good burger was at The Daily Grind in Bangsar. That was aeons ago. But ever since then, my search for a good burger has been intensified, albeit lazy attempts, and I found my favourite one as far as in Singapore (here).

Anyway, as usual, thanks to the power of Internet, I got to know this place which is quite close to where I am currently working at (yay!). Famous for its burgers, it said that its origin is from Singapore and when I realised how famous it was, the facepalm moment hits me like a freight train because I’ve not tried them at all despite my frequent trips to Singapore in the past years. Nevertheless, they are here in Malaysia!

Drinks; Iced Lemon Tea and Root Beer Float

One of their major enthrallments is the ability to let loose your invention and customise your very own burger. With 3 types of bread, 3 types of meaty patties and numerous toppings and sauces, there should be more than tens of combinations to try.

The one I ‘created’ the other day consisted of honey oat bun (RM2), pork patty (RM11), bacon (RM3), fried egg (RM2.50), shiitake mushrooms (RM3), caramelised onions (RM2.50), cheddar cheese (RM2.50) and garlic aioli (RM1.50). Despite its massive appearance, the burger somehow felt underwhelming as the thick pork patty was lacking in taste. I would not say it was bland, but I guess some special ingredient and seasoning would definitely help in flavouring. A burger like this would set you back RM28 (excluding tax and charges).

Other than burgers, they do serve dishes like appetisers, soups, salads, sandwiches and main meals. The one shown below is their interpretation of American classic; Mac and Cheese (RM18).

Mac and Cheese

Rich, thick and sinful, each bite was filled with full of cheesy guilt. The grilled chicken breast was tad dry but it was all good to go with the pasta. The garlic toast that came along was over-charred, making it close to inedible. However, the waitress (or the manager) was glad to replace it with a new one, albeit a smaller, soft piece.

All in all, with my subsequent visit in consideration, this place is a good place to go to for a proper burger. The ambiance was lively with tables and benches arranged orderly. The service during my two visits were alright despite understaff during peak hours. The burgers that I tried were a-okay but their patties could be improved further. Nevertheless, this will not refrain me from visiting them as I foresee there will more visits to come!
