Its actually close to 3am here in the UK. I'm trying to clear my backlog before actually writing about any restaurants over here (in London). Okay, I'll probably make this my last post in Malaysia until I get back.
A couple of days before heading over to London, I was suppose to meet a friend for dinner. She suggested we try the food at Edo Ichi. Somehow, we always find ourselves ending up at Solaris Dutamas for food.
Since it was our first time here, our order were based on the biggest picture that could be found on every other page of the menu. Simple logic illustrates that the better a dish, the bigger the picture. Makes sense doesn't it? No restaurant would make a crappy dish the highlight of their menu.
Anyway, we had a few common dishes and a main each.
Una Cheese Roll
Salmon, Crabstick, Cheese and Vegetable Roll
The cold thin noodles (RM28) were supposed to be eaten in a dipping sauce similarly to soba. A poached egg was served on top of the noodle to give it that gooey gelatinous feel to the noodles. As for the 2nd part of the dish, the dipping sauce came with a good bit of wasabi, sesame-seed, spring onions and a raw quail egg. For the light hearted who do not enjoy raw food, my advice is not to order this dish. It was a rather unique experience of eating buckwheat noodles.
All in all, Edo Ichi definitely serves better food than Rakuzen. Taste wise, most of the dishes were alright. Nothing was spectacular but nothing went wrong either.I am quite sure they have another branch in Penang as well.
