Aug Meet-up @ Miraku

Miraku Restaurant @ G Hotel

Met up with the girls last Saturday. The side reason was to celebrate Pat, Ee Lyn as well as yours truly's bdays but the main thing was to catch up. We planned this 3 weeks ago actually LOL, yup, that's how "bz" some of us are....

The venue was Miraku Restaurant @ G Hotel. Peen fwded us the brochure and the set meals caught our eyes! The prices were kinda OK too seeing that it was a restaurant in a hotel..

Fast fwd and we were all sitting at the table waiting for our meals to come..noticeably missing was Peen :P - she was still doing facial then I guess..keke. We had a hard time deciding what to order as some of us felt the portions looked huge and we might not finish it on our own. Also, each set meal comes with appetizers and desserts.

Shu-Yin and I decided to share the Miraku Gozen and ala-carte dish, Futomaki. Pat and Karen shared the mini version of Miraku Gozen, the Sushi Zen which comes with assorted sushi as well as two temakis.

Miraku Gozen had everything common in a Japanese meal..there's sashimi, assorted nigiri sushi, tempura, grilled fish (which both Shu-Yin and I didn't know how to eat till "clean-clean" coz both of us have our nitemares of fish bones stucked in our throats when we were young! *ouch), miso soup, chawan mushi, salad, red-bean jellies, etc.

Futomaki on the other hand was hand-rolled sushi with a bunch of ingredients..unagi, kanpyo, denbu, etc. The description was what made us ordered in the first place - we wanted our money's worth :P - And indeed it was..huge roll cut into 8-pieces and was the yummiest dish of the night for me :D

The rest of the dishes were OK. Ee Lyn gave her Tori Teriyaki Zen a 3 or 4 out of 10 only. However service wise was kinda bad. We were like invisible guests that night. No one waiter /waitress came on their own to refill our teas. We had to ask every single time...!

Overall it was a fun night out. And we have decided to make this a once-a-mth thing with each of us taking turns to organize as well as to suggest the makan place. Next is Shu-Yin's turn!


My Rating: (for the food + service)

LOL..yeah, I still remembered an uncle from another table kept looking our way when pat was trying to take pix with Shu-Yin, me, and our grand Miraku Gozen..coz Pat was so luan haha, "y i no chopstick keh?" :P

But the food presentation and environment are nice though..jst service needs improvements.
