taishi teppanyaki @ usj9
craving for teppanyaki but don't want to brave the traffic jams, going in rounds looking for a parking spot and wasting time in a shopping mall? come to think of it, how many independent teppanyaki shops are there out there that are NOT in shopping malls?
google'd and found taishi teppanyaki in usj 9.
pretty good ambience, eh?
we (me, calvin, eiling) stood out being the only patrons in the outlet after a couple left moments after we were seated. and having one big camera with flashes snapping away doesn't help with being the center of attention. that being said, we were approached by the 'lao pan niang' (lady boss) who relate to us that her husbang (aka 'lao pan') once had one big camera as well but was stolen after the shop got broken into blablabla.
further conversations... blablabla taishi has been around for 4 years blablabla lao pan niang learnt the japanese culinary from japan where her sister resides in blablabla chefs are local blablabla own homemade concocted special sauces blablabla
deluxe sushi set- rm14.80
sliced beef in goma peanut butter sauce- rm18.80
beef course- rm34.80
(top L-R): N.Z. beef sirloin, tiger prawns, beef rolls, cuttlefish
chicken + salmon + cuttlefish- rm23.80
food is not too bad, but a tad too pricey imho, sushi is not recommended though. i love my goma peanut butter sauce as it goes really well with the rice! i heard calvin said he loves the nz sirloin beef which was done in butter yaki style. looking at the pics make me wanna have the meal all over again....
