Itadakimasu いただきます at Sumika


My Japanese inspired kimono top. I decided to dress the part when dining in at Sumika.
I love the Japanese culture and food! Let me share with you what I had at Sumika for dinner recently. It was my first visit there.

I have heard so much about this Japanese restaurant called SUMIKA. Located at the vicinity of SS15. So many people have raved about how awesome this place is. I finally had the chance to try this place out when my brother decided to do a family dinner there last night. In fact, my brother and mom was previously turned away when they visited this place a few months ago during dinner time. It was full house. They did not book. So if you really want to dine at this place, do remember to secure your place by calling them up for a reservation first so that you don't get turned away. Here is their tel: 03-5632 9312
For last night's dinner, we booked a week ahead.
This place is pretty small and it's full house most of the time. 
Smacked at the center is the chef grilling station. The restaurant has a smoking section and a non smoking section.

Sumika serves juicy and tender skewers in chicken, pork and beef (yakitori in Japanese)
Below is the soft bone (Nonkotsu) at RM5 per stick. I am not a fan of soft bone. I prefer the thigh chicken meat.
Thigh Chicken Meat (Momo) RM4 per stick is tender and juicy. I love this the most!
Thigh and Green Onions (Negima) RM5 per stick.
The difference of a dollar will get you this compared to the stick above.
The green onion gives you a different aromatic taste. It's worth paying for that RM1 more to have a different taste in your taste bud.


Garlic and Chicken Skin (Ninniku Torikawa) RM7 per stick. If you love garlic you will love this. The garlic is grilled in an aromatic manner. This is dad's favourite so far.


Grilled Chicken Wings
Besides chicken meat we also tried the Shimeiji Mushroom and Butter (RM12). After trying this suddenly I was inspired to attempt to make my own the next round. Love the fresh buttery taste. A great flavoursome combination.
In general if you find all of these too meaty, you can even order some mushroom dishes and rice (RM6) to go with all the meat skewers.
Pork Slice and Enoki Mushroom (RM7 per serving)
Meatball and Ponzu , a citrus based sauce(Tsukune Ponzu) RM5 per stick. Their handrolled meatball is one of my favourites so far. I just can't get enough of this!
Ahhhh I just love Japanese Sweet Potatoes. They are often very sweet, soft and aromatic. Sweet potatoes with butter (Satsumabata) RM10 per serving. Kinda small in portion for RM10 but the sweetness of these sweet potato is just awesome. The butter combination is perfect.
And here comes the best part! 
Besides the chicken thighs and meatballs, this is my favourite , the pork belly (Bara) RM7 per stick. This mouthwatering pork belly is grilled with perfection. Juicy and succulent. 

The only dessert you will find here is this  pudding priced at RM7 Pudding.
Generally some sticks can be rather salty. Overall the food is on the pricey side. Sumika only accepts cash as payment. Make sure you bring enough to settle your bill. 
Here's a glance through on the menu pricing so that you are more prepared when you plan your trip there. My bill came up to around RM163 for all that I had above.
Green tea is reasonably priced at RM3 but if you drink Sake be prepared to pay more.
Very important! 
Make sure you call up to reserve your space ahead to avoid disappointment.

No. 19, 1st Floor, Jalan SS15/4, Subang Jaya, 47500 Petaling Jaya

Good Food at Jalan Loke Yew


If you are looking for good eats around Jalan Loke Yew, look no further. You will spot this restaurant when you travel along the main road of Jalan Loke Yew and it's drenched yellow paint. Even the signboad is in yellow. This Restaurant is supposed to be called Red Leaf which is reflected in the inner signage but I'm not sure why the outer it's of a different name, Restoran Shoong City. It's pretty confusing actually to have 2 different names.
But I am sure you wouldn't miss this end lot coffee shop which is very spacious on the inside.
My family has been visiting this place for their awesome Prawn Mee for ages. Seriously this is one of the best place for Prawn Mee which I highly recommend. You may ask them to add more small prawns to have that extra ummph in your prawn mee. It's totally worth it. This bow, added with small prawns costs RM9.  It's sweet-tasting and aromatic. The broth is simply to die for because it is boiled from large pork bones and prawn shells for many hours to extract the sweet taste.

If you are a fan of Prawn Mee, just come here. Enjoy a bowl of heartwarming Prawn Mee with your choice of noodles, shallots, kangkung, bean sprouts and perfect poached prawns all in one bowl of superb Prawn Mee served at this place.

The next item that my family love is the curry noodles. We usually order these 2 items when we are here. 



First stall on left serves Prawn Mee and the middle one serves Curry Mee. The stall way behind serves Wantan Mee. The "Sui Kau" here is also very nice. Huge and with genuine fillings. This place basically have everything you need for a nice breakfast or lunch, the Malaysian way- Chinese Kopitiam Style of course. All the shops here serve tasty food.

I tried the Fried Kuey Teow here for the first time and it was equally good with sufficient "wok hei". No regrets ordering this. So much great local food here. On weekends it can be pretty packed.

The white coffee here is also great and it goes very well with their toast bread with kaya filling. This toast bread is thick. It's super crunchy and I had a satisfying meal here with my family today.

Quirky Items for me and my pet dog

I am an animal lover as you all know and I lurve dogs. I have a schnauzer by the name of Rascal. Yup! My dad actually named him Rascal. I even create a #RascalYong for him on instagram so that I could reflect back all the good times with him and silly poses he has done. I am proud to say that I have trained my dog well to pose for the camera. Yes, he is camera ready at all times. Tell me about it! Sometimes I love to kacau him and make him pose with some of his food. He would patiently let me capture his poses without disturbing the items in front of him. #dogwelltrained.
Ahhhh...but I have my secret of how to get him look into the camera and hold still. I would have his doggie biscuit in front of me of course! Hahahaaha! Now you know my secret!

RascalYong pandai berposing for the camera.

And I love to tease him all the time and even take his videos.





My dog, Rascal Yong sells fish. This scene was inspired by a story of cat named dog that helps his owner to sell fish in Vietnam. Hence I decided to order some real-looking fish (they are pillows actually)

and have Rascal pose with these real looking fishes. I didn't get to dress him up like that cat cause I did not buy any cute costumes for him. I just made him pose in front of all these fishes and make him look like he is selling fishes!



Rascal now has his own toy fish. An orange KOI fish. Looks real as if he is eating that fish!




You know how you love your pet and sometimes I do waste a little bit of money pampering my dog with "nonsense". After buying my fish, I aspired to get him a toast pillow like this and wanted to make him to a "hot dog", literally. 
But then the joke was on me. The toast bread cushion that I ordered cannot fit that fatty! It was rather to small for him. 
So it ended up as cushion for my butt instead.

Fried Egg Blanket
The fried egg blanket looks cute too. OK! I better not waste anymore money getting him nonsense. I actually love getting creative stuff to make the pics look more interesting. These pics I picked up from the internet while props hunting.
Egg pillows of all sorts. Flat and rounded. I ended up not buying these. But they are just too cute to resist!


I love quirky things. In one of my earlier post, I even bought fugly looking fish shoes
And this finally because some house slippers. 
I can't wear it out walking the streets. But they are fun looking and makes a great conversation piece.
What quirky and weird items have you found online so far? Do share with me in your comments below. I would love to see what else I miss out!
