Itadakimasu!

The night-out was awesome! June and Ws brought me out for a belated bday dinner and I wanted jap. Therefore June suggested Rakuzen at Hartamas Shopping Center and was it gudddd! haha. It's a change of tradition where usually the bday person spends dinner and the others buy the present.... this time the invitees pay the bill without the hassle to find and buy a present... It was so much better, without the need to crack heads and find something for the bday boy/girl and then worrying if he'll/she'll like it. Why didn't we thought of this before?

We made reservations at 7.30 pm but had to called the manager to reschedule at 8.00 pm since I gotta pick June up at Puchong, the mother of all jam.... and then leave Puchong..... and then turn back to Puchong, the mother of all jam..... because Miss Loh forgot to take her purse out....

So got no choice but to turn back since she's paying the bill..... it wouldn't make a difference anyway since I'm so kind .................... and I don't have sufficient cash with me..... hahha

The food was really good.... along with great company, it made the entire evening just lovely. I was asked to ordered anything I wanted and as much as I wanted... so nice of them but I bet it's their evil plan untuk menggemukkan saya wtf...
All in all, we ordered 4 handrolls (3 with softshell crab and 1 salmon roe), stewed Unagi , 2 sets of cha soba (green tea cold noodles), stewed Cod fish, vegetables tempura and the omg-so-fcking-good wagyu beef!

The Unagi tasted alright i guess.... it was basically stewed with their special soup/ broth with eggs and mushrooms. I didn't take the eels but tasted the mushroom,eggs and soup. I found it to be quite delicious but I don't think everyone would like it. It's like miso-soup and honda-city where you'll either like it or hate it (honda city wtf). We however didn't have a problem finishing it.


The handrolls were also very good. So good that it made me finished the entire soft-shell crab by myself! Yes, I don't eat seafood, I don't seafood, I don't eat seafood. But I finished the softshell crab roll. To be frank, it did tasted a little fishy but was covered up by the mass load of wasabi. You must be thinking I've defeated the purpose of just tasting the wasabi but what I enjoyed more was the filling of the roll; orange-colored mayonnaise sauce thingie with the crab and some other stuff. Felt weird of eating something I normally won't. Weird as in going against my anti-seafood principle but I guess it's nice doing things out of our comfort zone once in a while. So what's next? Steamed monkey brain or tiger penis wine?

June had the salmon roe roll but I didn't get to asked her about it. I guess it was ok considering she finished it. I always preferred the smaller fish-roe version. Don't know why salmon roe reminds me of tadpoles and tadpoles remind me of sperms.... 0~.

Knowing myself, how can I not try one true jap dish; Cha Soba, Cold Green tea noodles. The taste was really fresh as it was not those kick-ass striking bring-you-to-heaven-wtf tang but rather a slightly salty, calm, cold relaxing feel. Haha, I'm talking like those exaggerated food critic but that's how I feel la.. It's also very fun eating it! You gotta break a raw quails egg into the tea, add some spring onions and wasabi, stir it really well, dip the noodles into it.... and slurp it right up!









The vege tempura was honestly just so-so. Nothing to shout about since it is coated with some batter and then deep fried. I thought there would be something different about it but nah..... just the same. Only consolation is that they fried my fav golden straw mushrooms!

And for the final dish for the day............................................

THE ULTIMATE OMG-SO-FCKING-GOOD WAGYU BEEF!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is seriously one of the best beef I had ever tasted in my life............. Seriously don't know how to describe it.... there's no seasoning except a little black pepper..... squeeze a slice of lemon on top of it... eat it with some fried shallots... and you're tasting almost heaven. After I came home, I did a little research on wagyu beef. I thought it was a level below the kobe beef but little did I know....

source: wikipedia
Wagyu
(和牛 wagyū) refers to several breeds of cattle genetically predisposed to intense marbling and to producing a high percentage of oleaginous unsaturated fat. Also known as Kobe-style beef, the meat from Wagyu cattle is known worldwide for its marbling characteristics, increased eating quality through a naturally enhanced flavor, tenderness and juiciness, and thus a high market value.

No wonder it was so delicious!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was indeed KOBE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Makes me smile it makes me smile.................. and very very sad once I finished it all.........


And after eating so much........ we realized that we still have dessert.... a cake the girls got for me. It was blueberry cheesecake from Cakesense..... and the 3 of us finished the entire cake.......still wondering how we did it....really...


camerawoman: Ok... 1.....2......3......
Me and June : Ehh.... wait wait wait wait........
All us 3+1 : Okok.....now can take.....
camerawoman : *click*

Wondering who is it?? How can we miss our dear friend Mr Bin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! wahaha Don't come scolding us being 'tai ka lai si'.... I bet you're damn touched with us doing it in 'your memory wtf'......... WE MISS YOU BRO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Faster come home and let's plan for our next trip!



Anyways, after dinner we decided to go for drinks.... KL and Bangsar was too far.... Hartamas and The Curve was too near to WS' house (no fun for her)....... so we ended up in Taman Tun.... never knew they have clubs there but was it wild and fun...... so wild that June unbuttoned my shirt and we contemplated on a potential guy cruising on us (including me wtf) .... wahhahaha.....
