Ninja Jones Izakaya

having heard lots about this place from my colleague, finally decided to drop by to try it. the eating experience was rather rushed as i was late from braving the traffic jam and from trying to find a parking spot in midvalley. not to mention a rather sore feet episode with heeled boots. i was just glad to sink into my seat, finding immediate relief. we were lucky to be seated with a bird’s eye view of the robatayaki, the Japanese bbq station. i wouldn’t say our table was a booth but we were the sole table in an enclosed balcony area. didn’t realise that there was so many more tables upstairs until later.

We had the Fried Chicken Cartilage to share. Not sure about you, but i have always enjoyed crunching the cartilage, or soft bones of meat. just as i have always been partial to tendons. it was nicely seasoned and tasted quite good.

Wagyu Ishiyaki Steak RM 52

wagyu beef is known for its tenderness and juiciness due to the marbling characteristics and can command a higher market value. i would say that this is one of the places that offers more affordable wagyu beef dishes. the steak was served atop a bed of sliced mushrooms and onions and seared on a hot stone. lightly peppered, the beef was tender and soft. however the beefy taste i am accustomed to is too subtle.

Ninja Bento RM58

the ninja bento is the best way to try a myriad of ninja jones’ offerings. it had sashimi, avocado & prawn roll, unagi (eel), tamago (egg), tempura, wagyu beef cubes, deep fried soft shell crab, chawanmushi, miso soup, and even one of their signature dishes, the Shuriken No.1 Special which is sushi with crab and avocado filling, wrapped with snapper and baked to perfection in cream sauce. and all served in a cute bento box with removable compartments.

quite an enjoyable meal, despite it being a little rushed as we had a movie to catch. didn’t catch any “ninjas” in action even though food was served quite promptly. was fun trying the japanese WCs in the restrooms too. heh.
