Umai-Ya @Uptown

We wanted to dine at Hokano but totally forgot that it closed on Tuesday. So we ended up at this restaurant since we parked the car close to it (it was raining).

Immediately I was scanning for salmon sushi in its menu but boy it was so expensive: RM11.90! Even if it was for 2 pieces, Hokano's salmon sushi is much cheaper at RM4 each.

So, instead, I ordered Katsu Curry Rice (RM28.90):

Oh, and yes, unlike those served at Sushi Zanmai, this one had carrot hehehe.

The chicken was juicy despite deep fried. The curry was mild. The rice was just right: not too wet or dry. There were only 2 pieces of potato. Disappointing.

It also came with a bowl of miso soup that had tofu and seaweed. The soup was not dense but strangely it tasted a little sour.

As a whole, it was very filling. In fact, I couldn't finish the rice. Gave the leftover to Ban, who ordered this soba:

He probably ordered fish as well but I can't be certain.

Towards the end of our meal, we were given feedback forms. Generally, it was quite a good place to eat but pricey. Yet, I said "Yes" to the question "Would you visit us again?" (or something like that) because I wouldn't mind trying other dishes (but definitely not sushi!). Ban, however, said "No" because "it was too expensive". Lol, well too bad, Umai-Ya :)
