I think it’s safe to say I’m not the only one who’s happy about Japanese food being so diverse in Malaysia these days. Back in the early 90s, every Japanese restaurant basically serves sushi, sashimi, and a few assorted dishes.

Fast forward 30 odd years, now there’s all sorts of different sub-Japanese cuisine available for us to choose – aside from the mentioned, there’s ramen, yakitori, tonkatsu, udon, tendon, izakaya, omakase places, and today’s topic – yakiniku.

For those who aren’t familiar, yakiniku basically means grilled meat, so in essence, Japanese BBQ.

Tokyo Bijin at Subang SS15 is one such restaurant, and when it comes to Japanese food in this area, you are pretty much guaranteed that quality would be at least decent, since there are dozens of different Japanese outlets here, those that aren’t competitive would usually get weeded out over time.

Like many such restaurants, the set up at Tokyo Bijin is complete with telescopic exhaust extended from the ceiling, controlling the smoke from grilling pretty effectively. The stove here is made of stone, with burning charcoal as the heat source.

Unlike Korean restaurants in which the servers may assist in cooking, yakiniku is usually a DIY process, which is fine by us since the meat are all pre-cut to bite size.

As expected, the menu consists of mainly various types of raw meat, including various cuts of pork (also iberico), chicken, beef and even seafood. You then get to choose different marinate for them. There are also some pancake, salad, rice, udon, and side dishes as well.

Of course, there’s a selection of wine, sake, sochu, beer, and .. well, green tea!

For dinner, we skipped the headache and went for their Tokyo Bijin Set (RM 98), Pork BBQ Set (RM 55), and a green onion rice (RM 12) to share.

The Tokyo Bijin Set came with beef karubi (boneless short rib), rib eye, shin skirt, green onion salt tongue, and also chicken thigh. As for the Pork BBQ Set, there were fatty pork, pork belly, and pork loin. We had these marinated with various style as per suggested by the server so that we get to try more flavors.

The meal turned out to be pretty great, it was fun grilling our own meat, and the taste were pretty much on point, if maybe slightly too strong tasting. I thought it’ll be 100% perfect if you have some rice to go with actually.

My favorite were the ox tongue, ribs, and fatty pork, but even those chicken thighs were pretty good as well. Will definitely head back to this place to try other stuff.

    We have two franchises and a couple of local Japanese restaurants but nothing spectacular, not at those prices, not really worth it since we do not enjoy what they serve all that much! Better stick to the franchise places, cheaper and not too bad and we have one very good Korean place – we would rather go for that.

    Yeah, new blog template looks fresh!
    I don’t like DIY grilling/cooking when dine out because I cook from Monday to Friday and 老娘 just want to relax to enjoy my meal on weekends, hehe!
    I prefer marinated meat for grilling, i like stronger taste food. 😛

    Seeing the amount of meat you guys got, the prices are pretty decent. Oh, I don’t mind grilling my meat once in a while, just that sometimes it can get overcooked when we’re busy eating…lol.
