Mine: Special Niko Niko Ramen

#175: Cheap Japanese Food: Niko Niko Onigiri

Wanted to eat Japanese. Not wanting to go Sushi King, and Sushi Mentai closed shop already (business no good I think). It almost 10pm when we left home and drizzling. Walking to my car behind 2 blocks, I thought of going to Niko Niko Onigiri (Seri Kembangan), near his house.

Address: 11-1 Jalan BS 4/1, Taman Bukit Serdang, 43300 Seri Kembangan, Selangor

Contact: 0129949984 The contact number and address should be correct (if I didn’t see wrongly because the receipt crumbled so not too clear).

One of our items came with Miso Soup and Potato Salad, I’m not sure is mine or his. So we shared. We ordered take-away.

Opening Hours: 7am till 10pm

Payment: Cash What did we order? Refer to the pictures.

They warmed the soup and the rice still hot! I didn’t know, not after I put 1 piece of Futomaki into my mouth. I like the special ramen (2nd time eating). How much?

Special Niko Niko Ramen (RM12.90)

Futomaki (RM6.90)

Bakudan (RM9.90)

No additional charges. So okay bah….

#122: Cheap Japanese Food: Sushi Mentai

Our 1st visit to Sushi Mentai, Taman Equine was in May. Today, is my 2nd visit (myself only) for late lunch. Just came home, after buying turtle food. I was struggling with the last paid post, and I felt asleep thanks to the hot and humid weather.

What can I say about today’s visit? I ate RM81.20 (inclusive 10% tax) worth of food. I didn’t order a lot of things. So what did I eat?

  1. Salmon Sashimi 5pcs (RM10.80 x 2)
    • The slices of sashimi is thicker than those in Sushi King. So yummy when dip with wasabi and soy sauce.
    • Bite size and never served frozen (you might get still frozen ones in Sushi King).
  2. Unagi Kabayaki (RM18.80 x 1)
    • Not sure if it’s a bit too expensive but isn’t it always expensive to eat this? There were 5 slices on the plate.
    • The sauce a bit too salty to my liking. I think it’s nice to eat with rice.
    • The meat was nice and side with tamago.
  3. Tempura Moriawase (RM13.80 x 1)
    • This I think is too expensive everything except the prawns are bite size. The prawns were smaller than what I had in Sushi King and elsewhere.
    • As for the sauce, there’s an extra kick of ginger (I suspect so) inside. Normally you put it on the serving basket, but I think they mixed with the sauce. Again, too salty.
  4. Sushi (RM1.80 x 1)
    • Pink plates
  5. Sushi (RM2.80 x 5)
    • Red plates
  6. Cold Green Tea (RM1.00 x 1)
    • Served in jugs.

You must be wondering why no pictures? Sometimes I’m just too lazy to snap pictures. And…. just to share with you.

  1. A waiter can’t differentiate between wasabi and ginger.
  2. A waitress doesn’t understand what’s edamame (the customer had said soy beans to her).
  3. The waiters and waitresses will stand behind you, if there’s a wall behind you.
  4. A table for 2 is too small for 2 because I had the table for myself.
  5. They don’t have set meals, no bento either.
  6. They will take away the menu after you order, so you will need to ask for the menu again.
  7. They have credit card machine but according to the cashier, the network signal no good.
  8. All sushi are bite size.

Nothing else more. Unless I go the 3rd time.

#116: Cheap Japanese Food: Sushi Mentai

Restaurant Branch: Sushi Mentai Equine Park Owner: Japanese Restaurant Sdn Bhd (913330-T) Address: 5G, Jalan Equine 1A, Taman Equine Boulevard, 43300 Seri Kembangan, Selangor, Malaysia Website: http://sushi-mentai.com/ We went there for dinner aka lunch last night. Finished work early. The surrounding shop lots are new so there weren’t many eatery outlets. We spotted this place some time ago but never got the chance to try. When I was 4SQ-ing, I saw remarks of the place, but we still dine-in as I wanted to try. Date & Time Clocked In: 23-05-2014  20:30:19 Check #: 101949 The place was quite full when we arrived, and it was just a one floor restaurant with limited place to sit. Suitable for individuals or small groups of 4 (max), unless you guys like to sit-squeeze style (I hate that). I am not sure how many tables and chairs are there. All I know, the tables for 2 is a bit too small, more like a table for 1 person (to me). There’s a long conveyor belt sushi with very little plates of sushi (is not even closing time yet) to pick. But somehow I took 3 plates from there while waiting for him to pick his order I’ve picked mine while he was in the toilet. Internet: No Cleanliness: Ok except from the fly that came in from don’t know where. I’m not sure about the toilet and the kitchen. Ambience: Air-conditioned, well lit Service: Slow Credit Card: No. Cash Only Damage: RM64.90 (should be RM70.40) What he paid is not the price that we ate because there is a communication error between the waitress and the cashier. I didn’t realize the mistakes when he paid. We had

  • Chawan Mushi (RM3.80) x2
  • Agedashi Tofu (RM4.80) x1
  • Salmon Mentai Dragon Maki (RM12.80) x1
  • Miso Shiru (RM1.80) x1
  • Salmon Toro Sashimi 5pcs (RM11.80) x1
  • Sushi (RM1.80) x2
  • Sushi (RM2.80) x7
  • Green Tea (RM1.00) x2

Mistakes: Instead of getting charge 7 red plates and 2 pink plates, we got charged for 7 pink plates and 2 red plates. Service Charge: 10% I seriously don’t know how these 2 girls talk and listen to each other. I’m still wondering if they ever realize the mistake. Rugi duit tau! Sikit-sikit boleh jadi banyak. The sushi are mostly mouth size or small. Not much variety but now I know where to get cheap sushi.

#107: cheap sushi vs not so expensive sushi

cheap sushi: pre-packed sushi, aeon taman equine [AEON]

not so expensive sushi: sushi king taman equine [SK]

normally when I go shopping at aeon taman equine, the nearest shopping complex from my place, I will dine-in SK; that’s if I crave for sushi. there’s not much choice to eat there, unless you eat outside.

today, I’m going to boycott this SK if the supervisor (I think) doesn’t change. bad attitude bitch. it’s not my fault that the order slip went missing. and it’s not my fault that I corrected you; I ordered hot green tea but you staff told you cold green tea; hot green tea cheaper by 50 cent; there’s difference. you don’t have to be so rude! — that was Monday case.

today I went shopping again. I had sushi again but got the 2 boxes from AEON instead. cheaper than SK. of course the quality is cheap lah; at least no rude face staff. — that’s brunch.

SK has a very bad environment since don’t know when; lots of flies!
