Since we’re in Chinese NY weeks and I didn’t want to go to crowded Chinese restaurants last weekend, I decided to try a Japanese restaurant in Palmyra.  We found a coupon (scroll down↓↓) for free sushi rolls there so it was a bonus. 🙂

I know this place used to be many different restaurants in the past, but the inside seemed to be the same with just different wall decors.  This place is not fancy but good for casual dining and getting take away.

On their menu you could chose Donburi style or Bento Box style for some dishes.  They also had Izakaya type food that some other Japanese restaurants don’t have, such as grilled mackerel, grilled squid and some tsumami (something like tapas) menu.

We ordered Chicken Katsu Don, Teriyaki Fish Don and Teriyaki Chicken Don, and a free 5-pieces-sushi rolls. (bit boring, I know!)

The pricing was ok.  Oh my, the size of the donburi was biiiiggg.  And the taste, I must admit I really enjoyed it.  They tasted different to those you get from other Japanese restaurants.  The teriyaki chicken had flame-grilled flavour, and the teriyaki fish was so crispy and meaty! !

With that pricing, I will be definitely coming back!!

Oh, for a free 5-pieces sushi roll, open shopadocket website on your phone and show to the restaurant staff. 🙂

Pepper Lunch 🍴

As you may know, Pepper Lunch has been one of popular Japanese eat-out place across the world.  Its “DIY” concept makes this place unique, where you get served your rice and meat/seafood on a hot plate and you cook while you eat at the table.

Luckily, we also have 4 Pepper Lunch restaurants in Perth WA now, and this restaurant has been one of my favourite place to eat out.  Your clothes may get smelly after dining, so be prepared!

My favourite is sizzling Japanese curry with hamburg and chicken, and kimuchi pepper rice.  I normally order a meal that comes with drink and one side of your choice (I always go for a salad).  The food (especially the curry) on the hotplate (teppan) get little salty at the end as it keeps cooking on the hot plate, but it can be a fun part..

One down side is that there’s no kids menu.  Hope they make one someday!

Wagamama Subiaco WA

Posted March 5th, 2013 in Eat Out in Perth - Japanese Food -, Food | 2 Comments »

For my son’s birthday we had a family lunch at Wagamama Subiaco.  I’ve been to Fremantle shop few years ago (which had been now closed for business) so I knew this restaurant is not a proper Japanese restaurant ; their menu is definitely a fusion of Asian cuisine.  But we went there anyway!

They do “kids eat free!” –  a child eats for free when an adult purchases a main meal.  This offer is available everyday!

Hiro chose “mini yakisoba” (stir-fried noodle), and his baby cousin chose “mini cha-han” (stir-fried rice).  These say “mini” but the dish was pretty big.  They both couldn’t finish their meal.  I thought they taste bit too salty, but I guess that’s how local people like it.

I ordered “chicken katsu curry bento”.

My party ordered “pork belly ramen noodle”, “yakisoba”, “teriyaki salmon with rice”, and “teriyaki beef bento”.

“Chicken katsu curry bento” – the curry is not Japanese curry – it contains coconut cream.  I didn’t like the rice too – too mushy 🙁  They probably don’t bother using expensive Japanese rice (short grain).    And, I was surprised the difference of meal size between “teriyaki salmon” and “bento”.  “Bento” contained just small amount of rice, but “teriyaki salmon” contained big mountain of rice on its plate.

Well. atmosphere is nice and the staff were friendly.  We had fun over all.

We ordered desserts as well.

We ordered “banana katsu”, “coconut creme brûlée”.

“Banana katsu” came with coconut ice cream on side, and  “creme brûlée” came with chocolate brownie spring roll on side.  Creme brûlée and brownie spring roll weren’t very sweet.  They were all ok, but next time I’d probably just order ice cream if I want some dessert.  Ice cream flavours include vanilla | coconut | lychee | green tea | black sesame seed |, and I think they are much better choice.

Buffet Dinner in Zushi Bento Ascot

Posted October 18th, 2012 in Eat Out in Perth - Japanese Food - | No Comments »

The other day I had dinner at Zushi Bento in Ascot.  I sometimes go there because my sister-in-law lives around there and we get invited to have dinner together in this area.

Zushi Bento in Ascot is doing dinner buffet on Friday and Saturday nights.  I was excited because I hadn’t gone out for dinner for awhile, and was craving for something Japanese.  I was also delighted about the buffet because Hiro eats like a horse and it’d be free as he is under 2 yr old 😉

We arrived just before 6pm, and there’re not many customers yet.  As soon as we were taken to our table I went to the buffet counter to see what they have.

All the Japanese food were set in front, and Chinese dishes were at the back.  I saw sushi (roll sush, nigiri sushi & molded sushi), miso soup, porridge (this is Chinese dish, not Japanese), tempura, then some Chinese dishes such as fried-rice and chicken in black bean sauce.  Sashimi, salad and desserts looked nice.  I was hoping they’d have karaage, but they didn’t.

This is D’s plate –  I didn’t take any Chinese dishes on my plate.  I took loooots of sushi, tempura, miso soup and salad.  I don’t know how many times I traveled between buffet counter and our table. :p  Sushi is actually not my favourite food, but I ate so much this time as I hadn’t had it for awhile.

I had a bite of Chinese dish from D’s plate, and it wasn’t really nice…  I didn’t like dim sum dishes either.  It’s my opinion but you should stick with Japanese food there.

Desserts looked pretty.  I enjoyed panna cotta 🙂  I was so full to try cheese cake, muffins and cookies though.
I really wished they had included coffee to the buffet menu, haha.

The price is like other buffet places.  If you crave for sushi and sashimi then I recommend this dinner buffet.  Unlimited sashimi, sushi and tempura buffet 🙂

Look at Zushi Bento’s website for more details!

 

 

 


Buen 151 Japanese Restaurant

Posted September 19th, 2012 in Eat Out in Perth - Japanese Food - | No Comments »

Have you been to Fuji Sushi Station in Victoria Park before?  Unfortunately they’ve been closed for business for a while, but if you are craving for their authentic Japanese food then head to Buen 151 in Victoria Park.

Owned by Fuji Sushi Station people, Buen 151 has already became popular among local and Japanese people who live around Perth.  Many of their customers are repeaters from Fuji Sushi Station.

Gyu-tataki (cold beef carpaccio) for entree.  It comes with side salad and dipping ponzu sauce.

Bento box.  Quite typical items – tempura prawn, katsu, teriyaki and sashimi.  If you are after bit of everything then this could be the one.

Chirashi-zushi.  My friend LOVED it!!  The price is about same as bento box (or less) – I would definitely chose this instead of bento box.

Su-udon (simple udon noodle in broth).

Overall I like this place.  Staff are friendly, the atmosphere is ok (very simple looking from outside – but they’ve got lots of eating space inside), and the prices are reasonable.  I read someone’s review saying that futomaki (rolled sushi) was too sweet, but it’s just what it is in Japan.  We season egg omelet and kanpyo for sushi quite sweet.

Above are photos of dinner.  For lunch time they may have different menu.

Open Wednesday – Sunday for lunch & dinner

Iku Sushi Perth City

Posted May 22nd, 2012 in Eat Out in Perth - Japanese Food - | No Comments »

Iku Sushi opened just few months ago and is conveniently located just few steps away from Perth under ground train station.  I don’t usually go to city anymore, but recently I had a chance to try their food.

The place is not huge, but I liked the theme they are doing – ninja!  All staff wear ninja-like uniform, and they say their service is as fast as ninja.

Interior of the shop is lovely.  Cute old-Japan-style wall paper, and Japanese snacks and zakka toys on the counter.

“Iku” means “to go” in Japanese.  They use eco-feindly packaging for some food items, and the variety of menu is wonderful.

They set a huge fridge for drinks and cold dishes (such as sushi) for busy people to just grab and go.  I like the idea.  People who want to get hot food (such as teriyaki) proceed to the counter and place an order.

D & I ordered chicken karaage bento (L) and unagi bento (L) to take home.  Plus 2 large miso soup.

Miso soup came in this cup.

D was really curious about cheeseburger sushi, but maybe next time.

You can chose the size of bento box menu, and our large bento box came with 2 kinds of salads, 2 mini spring rolls, 2 sushi rolls, and big portion of rice and meat/fish.  Very volumy and I could only manage to eat half of it.

Unique Menu at Sundays Everyday in Myaree

Posted May 15th, 2012 in Eat Out in Perth - Japanese Food - | No Comments »

Every time I go to Sundays Everyday in Myaree I get amazed by their menu :))  They don’t only serve boring Japanese menu such as teriyaki and tempura.  They regularly create new menu so customers don’t get bored!

Last week I went there to get sushi rolls and sandwiches to takeaway, and saw interesting menu on the board that I may want to try out next time.

Chicken Ramen …  I don’t know if they mean ramen noodle soup with chicken, or that “chicken ramen” we have in Japan…  but I assume what they have is ramen noodle soup with chicken in it, because that “chicken ramen” we have in Japan is an instant noodle and I believe it’s impossible to import that noodle to Australia.  Hmmm I want to know whether I’m right or wrong.

Beef Mince Croquette Bento, Oyster Fry Bento, A Lunch, B Lunch, etc etc…  They all sound yummy.  Their food is volumy and I think their target marketing is men who works around Myaree area.  Or people who have huge appetite.  To me, I think they have lots of meat and deep-fried items in their menu, so I thought that’s who they are trying to sell their food to.

Okonomiyaki Bar sounds very interesting.  How they make it?  According to their illustration, it looks like a candy bar that you can hold and eat.  Haha, very unique.


Yuki Japanese Restaurant in Willetton

Posted April 29th, 2012 in Eat Out in Perth - Japanese Food - | No Comments »

Yesterday early evening I took my family to Yuki Japanese restaurant to have dinner. It was a rainy day and I felt something hearty Japanese food. I thought I might have unagi because a Japanese cartoon I was watching with Hiro was an episode of unagi donburi.

It was Sunday night but I assumed the restaurant wouldn’t be so packed.   I was wrong… We arrived there around 6:30pm, and the place was already nearly full. The waitress said they’re fully booked but they can offer us a table if we’d be able to finish dining before 7:30pm. I’m pretty sure, I replied, because I knew Hiro wouldn’t be able to be here quiet and well-behaved for longer than 30 minutes.

D wanted chicken teriyaki, but teriyaki dish doesn’t come with rice and miso soup unless you pay extra for them. I think it’s ridiculous – who would eat teriyaki without rice? Is it Australian way?
Bento box comes with rice, miso soup, salad and sushi rolls, and the price is not much different with teriyaki dish if you add the extra fee for rice+miso soup, so we all ordered bento box.

I had Chicken Karaage bento box, D had Teriyaki Chicken bento box, and in-law had Fish Teriyaki bento box.  I didn’t see unagi on their menu.  Even if I did I probably wouldn’t order unagi because I know it’ll be expensive!

Karaage was quite small pieces.  I guess that’s how they do as smaller pieces are quicker they cook.  I loved the combination of dark sauce and Japanese mayonnaise.  I don’t know what the dark sauce was, but I think it’s something like teriyaki sauce….  The sushi rolls that came with bento box were three pieces, and they’re nice too.

I tasted D’s teriyaki, and I know now that they actually make the teriyaki sauce by themselves.  Some restaurants here use “teriyaki sauce” they buy from their supplier – they don’t make from scratch.

By the time we finished our meal, the restaurant was full and very busy.  It was just before 7:30pm so we could leave there in time.  I thought the price was bit expensive considering the food what’s in the bento box, but I guess it’s how they charge Japanese food in Perth.

Japanese Cafe ULARA

Posted October 24th, 2011 in Eat Out in Perth - Japanese Food - | No Comments »

It’s been a month a so since this small shop called “ULARA” took over the business from Super Fuji in Victoria Park. It is located in the same address where Super Fuji used to be, at the end of Albany hwy.

The new shop ULARA has a big sign board at the front, and the logo on the windows outside looks good. But once you step inside, the place is more like a deli, I thought. Super Fuji was like this as well (plain white wall, small space). Urara continues the rental service for Japanese books and DVDs at the premise.

This place also sells Japanese foods, but not so many. The owner told me that he just sell what customers request. So, what is the main business of this shop? DVD rental service? Retail of Japanese groceries? Well, it’s actually takeaway of Japanese foods.

“It’s been just a preparation period to setup the kitchen and a whole process of takeaway business”, the owner says. Urara starts selling Japanese takeaway  food from today (24, Oct). The owner’s previous business, Banzai  Sushi & Noodle Bar in Leederville was such success and he had many fans. He sold the business to Matsu Sushi last year, and since then he’d been hunting for a new place to start new business. I’m not sure what Urara has on its takeaway menu, but I’m sure they will all taste good considering the foods he was serving at Banzai.  ULARA has few tables and chairs inside for dine-in too.  They are plastic ones, so it’s more like a place for busy working people who want quick lunch rather than for couples who seek for romantic dining experiences.
