Review - Joy grill & Sushi

Hers - Shrimp and Veggies Tempura

His - Beef Gyoza

His - Chicken Teriyaki

Hers - Unagi & Avocado Bowl

His first try using the chopstick

And he did it! Bravo Baby! Although that only lasted like 2-3 min. He opted to use the fork for the rest of his meal or else we would have to spend 3 hours in the restaurant! lol.

We actually didnt plan to eat out that day but after having a bad experience at the self-service carwash and feeling angry, decided to just eat out and try this place. Actually it was the word grill that caught my eyes. You see, the only Japanese style food that Michael would eat is the teppanyaki style so it is really not easy for me to just walk into a Japanese restaurant.

So we decided to give this place a try. Upon checking the menu, I decided on having shrimp and veggie tempura as an appetiser and unagi & avocado bowl while he, went for the beef gyoza and chicken teriyaki. He said he would share the gyoza with me but I guess they were so good that he forgot about me and finished off all by himself! :P Not that I mind anyway since I know we'l be going back to this place. Yay!

Anyways, the tempura was good and so is the unagi although they are rather small in portion. Iv never had a combination of unagi with avocado before but they worked! Michael on the other hand, seemed to enjoyed his gyoza more than the chicken teriyaki. All in all, Im giving this place 2 thumbs up. The foods were good and they are pretty cheap too compared to other places. For all 4 dishes and 2 sodas, the bill only came up to around $32.

I like tempura of any kind. I usually buy the ready made tempura batter from the asian store to deep fry my vegetables. Yummy!

Sri, u dont like sushi either? i love them but i cant eat them everyday tho. lol.

Envy, i think eating w chopstick works if the rice comes in a bowl and not a plate like his. lol.

Zue, i use ready made tempura flour too. tak kuasa lah nak buat sendiri. :P
