1600 Pandas World Tour, Mono Sushi & Okonomi @ Publika, Solaris Dutamas

Last weekend, The Wifey and I brought Aiden to see (and also to show our support) the 1600 Pandas at Publika, Solaris Dutamas.

And since The Wifey was as usual craving for Japanese, we decided to have sushi at Mono Sushi, a semi-fine Japanese restaurant serving 120 types of handcrafted sushi. Located along the...

Hakata Ippudo Ramen @ The Gardens, KL

We decided to try out Ippudo Ramen at The Gardens Mall since Ippudo Ramen serves one of the best ramen in Malaysia. I had previously tried Hokkaido Santouka Ramen, Menya Musashi Ramen and Yamagoya Ramen; by far I think Menya Musashi is the best! The Wifey (not a ramen lover) thinks Menya Musashi’s ramen is just slightly above...

We spotted at least 5 Japanese restaurants along the same row of shops and decided that we’ll try Jyu Raku, which is next to Rakuzen for this time. Parking is not a problem as Jyu Raku offers free valet parking...
