Fugu Neo Japanese Restaurant | Damansara Jaya

My friend brought me to a new Japanese restaurant near the once-known Atria Shopping Centre site in Damansara Jaya -- it's name is Fugu, which is located at the row of shops exactly behind Public Bank. It shouldn't be too hard to find and parking is ample even on weekends. The place was pretty packed on the evening as many families were there to enjoy there dinner. Let's see why this Japanese restaurant has just made it to my list of must try restaurants!


Age Tofu (Deep Fried Tofu)-RM8
Tip: Age Tofu does not refer to how old the tofu is! =) This is pronounced as "Ah-Geh" Tofu, with the "G" being pronounced as you would in "Guns". I really love this appetizer in all Japanese restaurants, but Fugu just makes it slightly more special as the tempura batter doesn't get soggy and breaks off when it is dipped in the soy sauce. Surprisingly the outer batter remains crispy even after we left it in soy sauce while we were enjoying our main dishes. Must try!

Saba Shioyaki (Grilled Mackerel with salt)-RM25 
This Mackerel is really the main reason why we visited Fugu. Correct me if i'm wrong, but we really couldn't find this in any other Japanese restaurant. The mackerel is grilled to perfection and is available as an ala-carte item only. Although only one side of the fish has meat, but don't worry because the portion is really big and is really good to be enjoyed with a bowl of rice for a single person. You may pay slightly more in total, but I find this combination to work as I observed many people who do not like the side dishes that come with Japanese restaurants' set meals. Furthermore, the meat remains extremely juicy and tender as it is grilled together with the bones, which adds further flavour to it. Certainly a must try item for all fish lovers.

Curry Torikatsu Set (Curry Chicken Cutlet Set)-RM24
The Curry Torikatsu set is also very satisfying and certainly big in portion. It tastes quite good, and comes with lots of potatoes, and if you notice that the potato salad comes as a separate item from the regular vegetable salad. Many Japanese restaurants do not do this as they only offer one item at a time, and combined with Chawanmushi, Miso soup and some fruits, I'd say RM24 is certainly worth it for this set meal. Must try item if you happen to be a Japanese curry lover.
