Tsubohachi Izakaya-Hokkaido

After trying the food here during a food review with Open Rice, I was so amazed that I brought my friend's family here today. We initially booked a tatami room but changed to the other room at the end and joined 2 tables together.

I rarely visit a restaurant more than once and if  I do it like for this one, that is because the food is too awesome!

Ramen Salada (RM 16.90) 

The Ramen Salada here has very fresh combination of vegetables like shredded cucumber, omelette, carrots, cherry tomato, bacon ham and seaweed. The ramen is perfectly boiled and not soggy at all.

Okonomiyaki (RM 17.90) 

This is the Japanese version of pancake with pork and bonito flakes and fried till crispy. I kind of ordered the wrong one because I wanted to order the Tonpeiyaki that was omelette with cabbage and without rice.

Okonomi Fu Ika Tempura (RM 15.90) 

The tempura giant octopus with bonito flakes are simply fabulous. The flour are just nice and enough and not too much. There was overload of mayonaise on top too.

Hokkai Kamameshi (RM 36.90) 

This rice inside a stone pot requires 20 minutes of cooking. The ingredients are crab legs, scallops, seaweed. It was quite delicious and not cooked till overly burnt.

Nagashi Somen Setto (RM 27.90) 

This is the highlight of the night. In Japan, they usually have the soba flowing down the bamboo. The soba is to be placed inside the machine to make it icy cold and eaten with the soy sauce and also chopped spring onions, shredded cucumber, baby mandarin oranges, cherry tomatoes and also sliced cucumbers that are made to so thin to be crispy. I think the price is very reasonable as it includes tempura containing 2 ebi, eggplant and another item.

Jumbo Kakiage (RM 9.90) 

This is vegetable tempura which are fried till very crispy. I love this as it contains a lot of vegetables such as carrot, lotus root, greens and onions. It is way better than the one made by the Pisang Goreng Stall Hawker.

Dashimaki Tamago (RM 12.90) 

I am not a big fan of tamago but this is served warm instead of cold like what the Koreans do. It is cut in smaller slice than the ones I had before. Very simple to please a simple person.

Torikawa Chicken Skin Skewers (RM 7.80) 

This is done in a yakitori style resulting in crispy feel of oil.

Pork Belly with Spring Onion (RM 9.80) 

The pork belly is quite ok though not as tender as expected but thank god it was not towards the oily side.

Potato Mentaiko Yaki (RM 13.90) 

Despite not being a potato fan, surprise, surprise, surprise, this has become one of my favourite grilled potato. Probably because they grill it together with cheese and fish roe which when melted together, is a delight to the soul.

Salmon Teriyaki (RM 17.90) 

We are a big fan of salmon so naturally we cannot avoid salmon in a Japanese restaurant. The salmon teriyaki is quite delicious and not too coarse or too dry. The tenderness is maintained. It is also not too salty.

Yuzu Shabetto (RM 9.90) 

Whenever I frequent this restaurant, I cannot miss my favourite citrus sherbet. You can be assured there was no colouring used as the ice-cream is white in colour. I like the taste of the pieces of citrus inside which opened up the senses.

Matcha de Roru (RM 14.90) 

I tend to like to eat anything in crepe so this is again one of my favourites. It is rice cake containing  red bean and green tea ice cream. The folds are done very neatly and it goes nicely into my small mouth.

Our entire bill came up to RM 240.85 only with so many dishes! Definitely saved more money than eating elsewhere and leaving this place more than satisfied with the variety.
