Aoki Tei Japanese Buffet

Aoki Tei, or previously know as Umai-Ya, has this special buffet promotion of RM68 per pax for lunch or RM88 per pax that includes all-you-can-eat Japanese ala-carte buffet with free flow beer. I used to call them twice to book a place but couldn't get a place. Finally, today, I got a seat due to the CMCO. 

Earlier I thought who would have served free flow beer, but seems we only drank 1-2 glasses. 

There were all the Japanese food from sashimi to sushi, california maki, fried food, tempura, ice-cream, salad, and many other stuff. 

I am glad that the appetizers are in small portion, seaweed and octopus. 

The sashimi moriawase came in very big portion, 4 pieces of each type, butterfish, maguro, salmon belly, octopus. 

They ran out of raw oysters so I was clever enough to order grilled oysters without the cheese which were quite tasty. 

The Beef Hot Plate was quite tasty, though I regretted not ordering the one with the onion. 

Our 1st array of dish display

The Soft Shell Maki had too much rice tolled together so I didn't like it. 

Tempura Moriawase 

My favourite item out of all the fried food (Agemono) is the Tempura Moriawase which even came with 3 Ebi and 1 eggplant. 


The Karaage and deep fried gyoza were the worst of the lot. The gyoza was over-fried till hard, something to my dislike. I guess I still prefer pan-fried gyoza than over-fried. 


The shisamo was luckily, not fried till overcooked. 

Unagi Salad 

I believe the Unagi was river eel, and was served with thinly sliced tofu and ladden with a lot of sesame sauce. 

Beef Sukiyaki 

The beef sukiyaki was quite delicious, with 2 big chunks of beef slices inside. The stew was very salty and not what I thought it would be. 

The Seafood Hotplate 

This is another of my least liked dish, as the salmon was hard and coarse, quite overcooked. The mentai sauce was also too cheesy.

Soft Shell Crab Salad 

This is another dish you should not order as the soft shell crab is too hard and they use normal mayonaise spluttered all on it. 


There are many choices of ice-cream with the conventional flavours. We chose the matcha and wasabi flavour whereby I prefer the latter. It's also tasty that it comes served with red bean.

Naj & Belle

We passed by Naj & Belle few times but every time, I couldn't bear to part with my penny for such exorbitantly priced cakes that cost almost RM20ish per cake. There are many who are affluent enough to afford it and always like to hang out there during tea time.

Since we have been eyeing the watermelon cake for so long, we finally relented and decided to try one day, since life is short! I guess I was also influenced by my friend's sister's Facebook post about the watermelon cake in Australia.

I sat at the outside alfresco dining which has lots of sunlight normally but it was a rainy day. The cake was very sinful and pure bliss. The high price is probably because they need to layer the strawberries (an expensive fruit in Malaysia) and also put in fresh cream. The cake was also not as sweet as conventional cakes. Truly bliss

Mykori is so famous in Malaysia for the shaved ice but I haven't tried it! I'm speaking the truth! It is because I could not bear to spend so much for just a giant shaved ice!

So finally, since I had itchy mouth, decided to try its famous Honey Dew Shaved Ice which was quite a good experience. It was such a challenging task for both of us to finish the entire huge shaved ice but had to finish it no matter how since it cost us almost RM20 ++ for that alone!

Tansen Izakaya

Every time my parents come, I would have to spend a lot of time googling for new food places as my mum wants to dine in a high class or at least air-conditioned, clean restaurant. This time, since it was during CNY on 9th Day of CNY, there were not many restaurants that are opened or not many that she hasn't tried since I always have some personal favourites. Moreover, mum's Chinese Birthday is on this day. 

Let's say the power of Facebook Ads pushed to me the Tansen Izakaya advertisement of RM8.88 sashimi whenever 4 pax dines. 

This is the washroom (left)! They even have private cubicles for 1 pax! 

Boy was I disappointed when I arrived there are the promotion has ended. Probably it was for CNY period. Anyway, since we came here, we checked out the place. There was a promo that if we order 2 Sapporo Beer Mugs, we can order any of the appetizers for merely RM8 so I have used that promotion to the max.

We were lucky they gave us a free appetizer which happened to be the expensive Braised Salmon Fish Head! It was such a tasty appetizer and made us so happy. 

Kushikatsu Set (RM8) 

This is the cheapest Kushikatsu ever in Malaysia or even Japan! It came with 2 ebi and 1 stick of shitake mushrooms deep fried to perfection and the crisp maintained. 

Salmon Fried Rice (RM16) 

The Salmon Fried Rice was an expensive fare but the portion was as small as a normal white rice bowl. It was full of aroma from the garlic and so tasty! 

Yakitori Set (RM8) 

The Yakitori Set came with BBQ pork, chicken and ladies fingers. Just a tad salty and the pork was not tender enough. 

Bacon Okonomiyaki (RM19) 

Initially, I was a little hesitant to order this as not many Malaysians can make nice okonomiyaki like the Japanese but luckily when it arrived, I wasn't disappointed but it was quite tasty. 

Steamed Grouper (RM28) 

The steamed grouper was touted to be one of the popular dishes and to me, anything steamed is better than those unhealthy fried stuff. We were so shocked that the RM28 grouper came in such a small portion and nothing to shout about it, bet I could make better one at home! 

Chicken Namban (RM8) 

The Chicken Namban was very oily, but unique that it was deep fried with egg till golden brown. 

Agegyoza (RM8) 

Gyoza was normally a favourite of ours but when it arrived, it was too small and not tasty at all. 

 Although it seems that most of the items cost RM8, but finally the whole dinner cost RM135.30! Perhaps I was too greedy and ordered too much!
