We are not a real fan of Japanese curries as we find them to be on a sweet side and the spicy level is extremely mild. But the Gyu-Curry (RM 12.40 (M), RM 14.40 (L)) was somewhat different and the spicy level was at an acceptable level with the same signature Onion Slice Beef.
Although Sukiya Malaysia has set foot for more than 3 years, it has been relative unknown to many. +BestRestaurant ToEat was invited to taste Japan No 1 Gyudon from Sukiya Malaysia outlet located at 27-1, Jalan PJU 5/15, Dataran Sunway, Kota Damansara, 47810 Selangor Tel: 03 – 6143303.
Sukiya Malaysia outlet setup is one of a fast food type, where food can be ordered at the counter and served quickly to the diners with minimum fuss.
As per the corporate mission of Sukiya; which is to bring delicious food at affordable price to the masses culminating from a proven process. The process from procurement, manufacturing and logistics of its food produce are meticulously followed. One really have to taste the food served here to authenticate this claim.
We started off the food review with none other than their best sellers and signature GYUDON Beef Rice (RM 6.40 (S), RM 8.40 (M), RM 10.40 (L)). The thinly sliced beef are from the grain fed cattle from Australia which has an excellent fat to meat ratio. Coupled with a special rice (a little sticky) and with the special strong onion flavour sauce, it was a very heartwarming and delicious rice dish. The serving of the meat that came with rice has a very generous serving as pictured above.
To go with the Gyudon, one can order an add-on set i.e the seaweed set which has a miso soup, a cold seaweed salad and a drink. This add on set cost RM5.50.
This is then followed by Teriyaki Chicken Rice (RM 8.40 (M), RM 10.40 (L)); we like the Teriyaki sauce, as it was just right the balance without being too overly sweet. The chicken thigh was grilled and coated with the teriyaki sauce and topped with scallion which adds to fragrant of the rice dish.
For this rice, we had it, with an add-on of the Seafood Tofu Set, which has 5 pieces of the fried tofu surimi with Miso soup and a drink at RM6.50.
The last Gyudon that we tried for the night is the Triple Cheese Gyudon (RM 8.40 (S), RM 10.40 (M), RM 12.40 (L)). The rice is topped with the same onion beef but for this special rice bowl, there are 3 types of cheese that are topped to it. To eat it, mixed the cheese with the rice and you get a gooey cheesy rice dish.
For those non rice fan, Sukiya also offers a new range of Ramen; we had the Tokyo Ramen with chicken (RM 8.40). The broth is of a chicken based and for us the ramen was just ok compared with the Gyudon which was much more flavourful and tastier.
For the Ramen, we opted for the Kara-age add-on set which has a 3 piece of Crispy Ginger infused Fried Chicken which was fried to a crisp on the outside while the inside still retains the juicy and succulent thigh meat. The set also comes with a Miso Soup and a drink priced at RM6.50.
We really find great value in the Don (rice) dishes as the quality of the meat that was served tasted very delicious and flavorful. For just RM8.40, you can get a reasonably big bowl of rice with top quality meat.
