Sumida Japanese Restaurant, Tanjung Bungah

First time has a Japanese cuisine at Penang. The amount of Japanese cuisine in Penang is not going to lose to KL. Too many to choose from but little made a name out of it somehow. However, I randomly chose Sumida Japanese Restaurant just simply it is situated near where I stayed. This restaurant brings a lot of Japanese environment in it but their menu is a little old which they need to look into it.
Somen @RM15.00++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 5/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 4/5 - This is the best somen that I had so far. The reason is the noodle is so fine and does not stick to each other. However, the primary reason for its full mark is the sauce. The sauce is not too salty like other restaurants which is just nice to accompany with this somen. Perfect!

Yakimeshi @RM8.00++

Taste: 3/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 2/5 - While it is hot, the first bite is truly delicious. However, after that you will realized that this Japanese fried rice is lack of "wok hei" which means the fire to cook this fried rice is not hot enough. This is very essential for a fried rice.

Surume Ika Bata-Yaki @RM22.00++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - It must be accompany with their mayonnaise or else this cuttlefish will be quite tasteless. I feel that it is lacking the grill taste in it. However, it is still consider as a very good signature dish.

Gindara Saikyozuke @RM28.00
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - This cod fish can look and taste oily but the oil is from the pure butter so it brings the fragrance out from the fish. So it is very delicious. However, it is a very small piece of meat to be priced this high

Unagi Kanbayaki @RM50.00++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 3/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - It does melts in your mouth straight away but the sauce is a little too sweet. That is a disappointment.

Overall, this restaurant can be very good but they have lack of choices after their salmon has sold out. The price is a little too high for a common restaurant like this.

Total Damage: RM135.30
Ambiance: 4/5
Service: 4/5
Food Serving Speed: Moderate
Recommended?: Yes if you do not mind the price.

Magnum Cafe @IOI City Mall, Putrajaya

Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 4/5 - It contains of cashew meringue, Mascarpone cream, honey balsamic cream served with white chocolate dipped vanilla Magnum topped with freeze dried raspberries and fresh strawberries. My suggestion is to mix them all together including the ice cream itself otherwise by eating the ice cream alone will be too sweet. Once you mixed them all together, the magic comes. The sensational taste of creamy, crunchy, a little sourish kick and sweetness combining all together to create a wonderful ice cream dessert. Definitely is a must order dessert when you are there.

Tamarind Springs @ Jalan TAR, Ampang

Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - It is also known as their signature Symphony of Starters, which takes you across the breadth of Indochinese cuisine with Vietnamese shrimp crystal rolls, lemongrass prawns, Cambodian-style deep-fried shrimp cakes and minced chicken on cinnamon sticks. All served with a variety of piquant sauces. The plate is just nice for 2 pax but the price is too expensive for that small portion.

Outlook: 3/5 Creativity: 5/5 Taste: 4/5 Price: 3/5 Overall: 3/5 - If you think that coconut soup should be a milky soup, then you are wrong. This is a chicken tomyam clear soup with coconut meat in it. Very delicious and creative way to make it. The coconut meat is the highlight of the entire soup. It just gave the soup an extra coconut fragrance in it and of course, they are edible. Do not worry, the soup is not too spicy.
