I was supposed to go to Sage @The Gardens today but apparently someone was sick of western food. So we settled for Jap at Restaurant Jyu Raku @Subang Jaya today. We usually patron this place instead of Rakuzen next door. Both of them differ slightly in terms of food and pricing.
Jyu Raku is set up by the ex-head chef of Rakuzen Subang Jaya, which is situated just next door. Apparently he left Rakuzen to team up with the owner of the shop lot. They're currently doing quite well if you ask me.
Jyu Raku imports all their food specially from Japan. Even their vegetables and those edible flowers that come along with the food are from Japan.
I must certainly say that service at this was impeccable. This is what happens when you're on the same row of shop lots as another 2 Japanese restaurants. Tea was served right upon entering. The waiter then came along to recommend us what was good that day.
We started off with a salad to share among the 4 of us before proceeding to 2 rolls.
(avocado and seafood salad)
(better known as dragon roll)
(soft shell crab roll)
Next came the hand roll, tempura and everything else!
(hot soba with beef)
(sorry I forgot the name)
Overall, I must say that this is one of the better Japanese restaurants in town. Our bill came up to about RM240. I must say that I am more willing to spend money on quality food than gorge myself at some buffet outlet. They sum up to about the same price anyway. I will most certainly visit this place again.
