Edo Ichi @ Solaris Dutamas


Sooner or later, a Japanese restaurant had to surface at Solaris Dutamas. Thankfully, it's a worthwhile entry that features sterling service.


Complimentary starters of meaty fish (which we couldn't identify).


The sashimi selection is reasonably priced. We tried a set of seven varieties, with two pieces each, for 95 ringgit. Freshly flown in the previous day, these tasted flawless.


Salmon, crab stick, cheese & veggie maki. Fans of sushi rolls might appreciate this place; more than half a dozen varieties are available. Most sound fairly appealing.


Eel, cheese & veggie maki. The unagi was warm and juicy, but there seemed to be something missing here. Maybe a little avocado might have helped.


Cheese cubes, in between courses. Packed a pleasantly strong flavor, with a nice, creamy texture: not too firm, not too soft.


Scallops with cod roe. Looked unappetizing, tasted a tad too salty. But for those of us who enjoy ingredients that are all gooey and mushy, this might be real comfort food.


A fluffy omelet, stuffed with beef tendons. Addictive! You have been warned.


Wines by the glass are offered, with Argentinian & Australian varieties by the bottle.


Edo Ichi,
Solaris Dutamas.

  3. Michelle: oh yeah, that's usually the first page I flip to on a Japanese restaurant's menu :D
    Tng: this place seems to be doing well ... I guess there can never be too many Japanese outlets either! Surprisingly the tendons were tender ... Maybe cos they were cut up into very thin, tiny slices...

  8. You mean before this, there's no japanese restaurant in solaris? Oh well, I hope they can survive by the time I make my way there to try.

  9. eiling: ah, there are japanese outlets at solaris mont kiara, but none before this one at solaris dutamas. i think it'll survive for quite awhile, since business seems to be good for now...

  14. It was nice but they still have to work out on the service management.

  15. Lazy bun: ohh, maybe. I guess I was there on a quiet evening. So service was ok, since there weren't too many customers to handle.

  17. Nell: heh, u're right! I kinda like those cheeses ... Can't resist buying them whenever I'm at the supermarket (which isn't very often) and then tearing the wrapping apart and popping them into my mouth. Very convenient snacks :D
