Fugu Neo

A nice neighborhood Japanese joint, with few frills but fairly satisfying fare.

Inventive rolls are the highlight. The David Maki _ sorry, the origin of that name eludes me _ features tuna, salmon, yellow tail, shrimp, avocado, scallions & wasabi tobiko, all wrapped in white seaweed, which tastes less salty than regular nori wraps.

Pattaya Roll, stuffed with soft-shell crab with avocado, fried beets, cashew nuts & Thai chili sauce. None of these rolls taste earth-shatteringly revelatory, but they're all enjoyable. Generously packed with fresh ingredients that combine well together.

Pink Lady Roll, with salmon, tuna, capelin roe, egg & avocado in pink soy wrap. Prices are reasonable; most of the makis cost around RM20-30.

Sake and wine are also available. But no fugu, despite the outlet's name.


Fugu Neo,
Jalan SS 22/25, Damansara Jaya, Petaling Jaya.
