Jap Out, Jap In
Sunday mass as usual with me wondering where to go KL for lunch. Mum suggested Ipoh Road YTF but I couldn't remember how to get to the OKR branch. Gave up on that and went to Ishin instead. Quite an extreme alternative in terms of cuisine and price. Mum had not been there before so that was OK. Love the fact that they have free valet parking but I really dislike their iPad menu. Always better to flip through a physical menu. Easier to decide and make an order especially when it's not linked to an order taking system. Took me a while to decide on Tuna Tataki Salad, grilled Sanma and nigiri sushi. Was impressed by the salad in terms of quality and value for money. And it was interesting to note that the Sanma was grilled without first gutting it. Seems that it's quite the norm. Never quite noticed that.
In the evening, I had dinner at MaisonSK. The usual gang was invited including KH. The star of the night was Brian's ajitama which he made following a video he watched on FB. Goes to show that one can actually learn how to cook from FB. Troublesome but worth the effort. Out of the 19 eggs he prepared, 12 turned out good. Drank a spot of rose wine that night too but I didn't linger. Had an early flight to catch!
