Ichizen // Foodpanda Giveaway (CLOSED)

Two weeks ago was my mum's birthday, and since my mum loves Japanese Food, we went to Ichizen to have her birthday celebration dinner :D

There are quite a few Japanese restaurants in Melaka, I think Ichizen is one of the best so far! (Wazen is really good too of course.) 

Okay, so as I'm doing this post, I realised I didn't take a picture of the menu according to what we ordered and the receipt only contains all the Japanese names of the food =_= I don't know Japanese, so now I need to use Google to translate. #goodjobme


Ninniku Yaki Meshi (Garlic Fried Rice)
Rate: 10/10

Personally am not a fan of garlic be it raw or fried, but their garlic fried rice is so fragrant and it is super yummy! It's always a must order when we go there.

1/2 Una & 1/2 Salmon Tataki Roll (basically, it's eel and salmon sushi lah)
RM 31.00
Rate: 7/10

Omg I didn't know this dish was so expensive till I'm writing this post! *hangs head in shame* *sorry I wasn't aware because I didn't order this and I didn't pay the bill* Okay, erm, well this kinda changes my perspective of this dish. lol. It was nice, but er, it's overpriced for sushi. However, if you really like eel and salmon (and have cash to spare), by all means, try this dish.

Mentai Soba  (I have no idea what 'mentai' is, but soba means 'noodles')
Rate: 8/10

Despite forgetting what is the main ingredient (which I suppose its 'mentai'), it tastes really good. Definitely worth a try :) 

Soft Kani Karaage To Shake Kawa Sarada *Goma Dressing
(Soft shell crab salad)

When I was reading the name of this dish from the receipt, I was like 'to shake?! Shake what??' I sincerely apologize to all Japanese, Japan lovers, anime characters and Hello Kitties for my lack of knowledge in Japanese. 

Anyway, like my mum, I love anything that has to do with soft shelled crabs. *sees soft shelled crab on the menu* *squeals in delight and shouts I WANT TO ORDER THIS* This salad is really nice and soft shell crabs are awesome because you can just eat them straight as opposed to the normal hard shell crabs where you risk getting cuts on your fingers just to eat their meat. Must try!!

Ichi Zen Pizza
RM 30.00

We had half of it salmon, half of it eel, just like the overpriced sushi above. This was just okay. Doesn't taste really special or anything. I would still prefer the good old Hawaiian Supreme Pizza over this any day.

Overall, it was a good meal. Ichizen is one of the awesome Japanese restaurants that is worth revisiting :)

As much as I like visiting restaurants and cafes to eat, sometimes I just really want to stay home and hope that good food (besides the usual pizza or Mc Donald's) will just drop down from Heaven so that I can save the hassle of going out.
