Nihon Kai Japanese Restaurant @ Old Klang Road, KL

One of our favorite and most visited Japanese restaurants  is Nihon Kai located along Old Klang Road. Years ago, hubs and I used to frequent Japanese restaurants in hotels to dig into buffet lunches almost every week but as we grow older, our tummies can only fill up this much of food and buffet meals often make us sick after 2 hours of crazy digging LOL! So, we prefer ala-carte meals these days and prefer to patronize Japanese restaurants that offer ala-carte menus. The portion is not big and this often leaves us raring to savour more and to come back for more... and not a feeling of overly stuffed sick with oily fish.

Nihon Kai is quite a small restaurant and simply decorated, yet it offers good quality Japanese food that is not too taxing on the wallet. Although this shop is located in a hidden area along Old Klang Road but they still enjoy brisk business for lunch and dinner. The restaurant is perpetually packed to the brim and never go there on a Saturday evening unless you are there at around 6ish pm.   We went to this restaurant several times on a Saturday evening at around 7ish - 8ishpm and each time, we had to leave with tail behind our legs.

One of the items on their menu that often leaves me craving for more is their phoenix sushi roll? (well, not really sure of the name of the sushi). It is wrapped with soft shell crab, avocado and lots of crunchy stuff on top. For one who eats no rice, I have to succumb to this sushi and give it a rating of 10/10!  No pic of this sushi this round as we did not order this item.

Several days before Aly and Sher's final exam, I told the MIL not to cook so that I could have more time to do revision with them.  So we headed to Nihon Kai for dinner.

Here's what we had:

 Ramen with bacon and eggs, which is the girls' all-time favorite.

 

Grilled salmon for moi... no rice for me, as usual.




Deep fried chicken with eggs on top of rice for my fan thoong Alycia, to be shared.




Alycia's all-time favorite and the most expensive -- grilled Unagi fish with rice.

this is the one right at the end of a junction road, where at the main road got the bak kut teh shop one right? (bad me who don't really like to remember shops names) If yes, then I fully agree with you!! Their Jap food is really good quality, and I heard it was opened by a Japanese Club chef..

Cynthia.. yup.. but there is another Jap restaurant on that stretch of road ya. It's Ishin - the restaurant that uses iPad for their eMenus.

Tammy... maybe the chefs there not as good as the one at Old Klang Rd?

Inspired Mom, even deep fried Tempura he doesn't like?
