Yoshinoya at One Utama

We went for a movie "Snakes on a Plane" on the Merdeka's day. Gosh, I've heard a not so good review about this movie but I thought it was pretty good. There's one scene that have actually "freaked" me out. LOL~ We actually have no idea of what to have for lunch as you know, One Utama got soo many choices of food for you to choose from. As we are heading for a big feast at Saisaki for dinner buffet later that night, we got to have something that's not so "big". I bumped into Yoshinoya and hence we tried it out as we never try them before.

I individually felt that it wasn't that nice. Yoshinoya was fast food chain, aren't they? Hmm, their service was fast though. The food came out really fast without having you to wait. This is what I call fast food services. =)


Well, I had their chicken teriyaki rice which cost RM8.90. The set comes with either you choose miso soup or drink. There's rice, chicken teriyaki with the sauce, with some vegetables. The chicken tasted like steamed chicken. I don't find anything interesting in my bowl of chicken teriyaki. Well, the soup was okay but a little too salty. I guess they smashed the tofu pieces in the soup as they use those "miso soup dispenser" for the miso soup.


Shujin had the chicken udon which priced at RM9.90. Shujin also chose the miso soup. Err, actually it was my mistake. Shujin didn't want miso soup but I heard wrongly. He actually wanted drink but...haha. Sorry! Well, The bowl of udon contains udon(of course got udon :P), pieces of seaweeds, one quite big piece of chicken meat, and sprinkled with some chopped spring onions. Look at how over grilled is the chicken meat! Or was it meant to be like that? I don't think so~! The soup was okay, and the udon was overcooked. Overall, I don't find anything interesting about his udon either.

One of my friend had their onigiri. She said it wasn't really nice also. I would probably not going back to Yoshinoya, but perhaps it's because I was too used to real, original Japanese food at those Japanese restaurants? Haha. :P

boo_licious - Oh, they have signature dish~ But, I can't take beef. :)

boo_licious said...

Yeah, I suspect you don't take beef as none of you ordered it. It's only famous for that - tastes a bit like chinese beef with rice but the Japs love it.

Hmmmm,.. I didn't really like Yoshinoya - not that it was bad or anything....
It's just that I expected it to be so much better (My point of comparison: Yoshinoya in Singapore).
