Sumi-Ka Japanese Yakitori, Subang

A restauranteur I recently met, who's in the Japanese food business, highly recommended Sumi-Ka ... so we searched Subang Jaya for this restaurant.

Alas, L and I didn't have a booking, so we ended up seating on the balconey, away from the "yakitori" atmosphere where one could observe the preparation and cooking. Somehow, the ambience seating outside was dull, and probably highlighted how plain the food was here.

Lots of fresh cabbage with a simple dressing was served...

We ordered various yakitori / Japanese satay sticks ... including chicken thigh, chicken breast, beef tongue etc.

This is the Uzura Tamago (Grilled Quail Eggs)

Rice ... bland!

I didn't quite appreciate how "loong" aka burnt the Yaki Onigiri (Tosted Rice Balls) was!

Good! Mackerel fish simply grilled.

Brinjal ... pretty decent too.
Alas, I doubt we would return to this place, the pricing was keen at RM$65 for the two of us, but the service was only average, and they sat us outside. Perhaps we should make a reservation to sit inside next time!
