Since I blogged about a cheap Western food restaurant in Kitchen Creatures on the previous post, I shall provide equal opportunity to another decent cheap eatery, this time a Japanese outfit – Restaurant Yakiniku at Pandan Indah, Cheras.
Restaurant Yakiniku 烧烤馆
To be honest, I seldom venture into Cheras for food. This has nothing to do with the food quality or prices there, but everything to do with the traffic situation in that part of KL during rush hour. An exception was made in this case because it was an invitation from Cheesie (her review here), and they serve pork.
Yakiniku is this smallish restaurant with simple wooden chairs and chimney like concoction not unlike many Korean restaurants. You get to grill your own food with charcoal in little stoves, no complicated gas or electric stoves though.
bacon, shishamo, mussels
As I mentioned earlier, this place is cheap, and by cheap I mean Cheras pricing. In fact, they haven’t increased their price in 6 years of their operation.
The plate of bacon is RM 5.90, a serving of five shishamo, err. I forgot, and the New Zealand mussels at RM 12.90 only.
enoki mushroom, shitake mushroom, tofu, cuttle fish
Cuttle fish at RM 6.90, and generally every other dishes we had were priced really cheap. I should have jotted down the menu but I guess I was too busy eating.
We basically put everything on the grill, the bacon was of course the favorite, and I really liked the chicken gizzards (RM 3.90). Enoki and Shitake mushroom were great with some butter and grilled over the tin foil.
chicken gizzard, grilled meat
I remember we had some beef slices too but that was only alright, and the tofu pok wasn’t exactly my favorite either. That said, the grilled food did turn out pretty good, and you seriously can’t beat the price.
chicken katsudon, kimchi fried rice
Other than yakiniku (Japanese for grilled meat), this little eatery also serves other dishes such as the chicken katsudon, kimchi soup and kimchi fried rice that we tried.
These dishes priced at below RM 10 and though I wouldn’t want to compare them to some of the more “atas” places, they are decent, and definitely provide value for money. (kimchi fried rice & miso soup at RM 7.90)
ze #porkgang, mostly 😀
We had a great time over the session, everyone got to eat quite a lot except for Haze who stayed the closest but managed to get the the latest. Oh, by the way Yakiniku Restaurant is dog friendly too.
Ah, before I forget, if you go there and mention kyspeaks you’ll get an additonal 10% discount on the already cheap bill. (if that doesn’t work, mention cheeserland instead cos I don’t know if the owner still remembers me. hahaha)
