Sozo @ Sunway Giza, Kota Damansara

Seeking Japanese fare in Kota Damansara? Sunway Giza's Sozo could prove a satisfactory stop.

Sozo's selection is wide & well-prepared; for a fairly priced order that's filled with fresh Japanese flavours, the heartiest bet might be this bara chirashi (RM25 before taxes), boasting plenty of chopped-up salmon, roe, tuna, crab stick & pickles over sushi rice.

The sashimi section supplies succulence in the shape of the hamachi belly (RM17.90), young yellowtail flesh that's one of the more intriguing items on the menu here.

Sozo's chef, who reputedly spent several years as the chef at Wisma Cosway's Ton Chan, recommends the tonkotsu ramen (RM25), complete with cha-siu, chunks of tender braised pork belly, corn & the soft, seasoned egg.  

Gyoza is available too, meaty pan-fried ones that are reasonably juicy, with a competently executed exterior crisp.

 Chinese influences also come into play in some of the recipes here, such as the Chinese cabbage.

Butter-fried squid (RM22.90), something nourishing with a pleasant home-cooked feel.

Comfort food, soul food, especially for egg lovers: An omelette-wrapped medley of crab stick & veggies.

Prefer eggplant to egg? There's that too, prepared with minced meat (RM15) to prove robustly tasty.

Many thanks to Sozo's Gavyn & Wee Kiat for hosting us for lunch at their very likeable restaurant.
