BBQ Japanese Style @ Yakiniku, Pandan Indah

June 5, 2010


Reading from other bloggers of this particular place, I’ve requested the gang to have dinner here last Saturday. Since we don’t need to go back to Kepong for dinner, I thought that this is a great opportunity to meet up and have dinner. Obviously my invitation is not appealing enough so most of the gang couldn’t make it apart from Lin, Sui Lin, Yam and Keristi. (Maybe it’s because I don’t have anything to annouce, or maybe I’m just getting less popular)


The place is pretty decent and despite being a Saturday night, there’s still ample tables around. I couldn’t resist taking this picture because it says “Yam Shaky”.


Which basically means this. (Sorry Yam, I always seemed to take blur photos of you)


This is the actual Yam Shaky, which practically means Yam Milk Shake (RM5.50)


The most important tool for Yakiniku is of course the charcoal stove.

And then comes the things that your put on the stove. From here we have Lamb Loin (RM12.90), Bacon (RM5.90) and Striploin (RM15.90). I don’t feel that the price is ‘very’ cheap, but ok consider that we are eating lamb and strip loin.

We also ordered Shishamo (RM13.90), Chicken Drumstick (RM5.90) and some Mix Vegetables (RM4.50) that consist of onions, pumpkin, egg plant and bell pepper. The Shishamo (that’s pregnant fish) is decent despite frozen, I find the Chicken Drumstick meat is well marinated, but it’s being diced into too small of a piece where you risk it dropping into the stove. The vegetables is quite normal.


Grilling time! Notice how small the chicken meat was…so better be careful while grilling it of you might risk it falling down.


It’s actually my 1st time eating BBQ in a restaurant with a charcoal stove, so although the price is moderate, it’s quite an entertaining experience.


We left the vegetables to be BBQ last…obviously, because we are meat eaters!

Afraid that the Yakiniku is not filling enough, we also ordered Soft Shell Crab (RM10.90), Kimchi Fried Rice (RM7.90) and Butaniku Rice (RM9.90). Both the fried rice and the Butaniku rice was filling, however, it’s definitely not the best that I have eaten.


Yam and Keristi also ordered a plate of Rainbow Sushi Set (RM19.90) that contains up to 4 pieces of Salmon Sushi, plus Unagi, Tako, Tamago, Ebi, Inari and Cuttlefish each a piece.

I would say that Yakiniku would be a reasonable place to have Japanese food because they have something special which is Japanese BBQ. However, I feel that the food is just moderate and the price is slightly on the moderate high side, however, you still get a 10% discount if you mentioned Cheeserland.com, which is pretty good.

Our billed come to a total of RM200+ but with the discount, at the end we only pay RM180. I would recommend going once to try out the Yakiniku, but for myself, I don’t think I will be visiting it anytime soon.
