located at the more quiet side of SS15, Subang Jaya, it’s actually pretty close to the colleges around. weird how it isn’t that known or noticeable arond. but to my surprise, you need to BOOK before you get there because it’s always filled. judging from how most of the shops around barely have 10% of their tables filled.


the picture says it all. CASH ONLY, and NON HALAL.


this little shop actually brings you to Japan with it’s wooden windows and interior.


packed with only Japanese people, Sumi-Ka offers a wideeeee range of alcohol; taking up almost half of the menu.

the food here are VERY GOOD alcohol snacks. so you might really want to drink.


Sumi-Ka is more of a drinking place with awesome BBQ snacks rather than the usual Japanese cuisine. but do not look down on sticks of meat, they can really make you full!


packed at eight. the Chefs are Japanese and I assume that everyone working there to be able to speak Japanese too. some of the waiters and the lady boss can speak Chinese (English too I think) so no problem with the language barrier.


the snacks on the house. they will refill these raw cabbage soaked in their own special sauce which seemed like vinegar/apple cider as soon as they spotted an empty bowl.

it’s scrumptious.


this was actually my farewell dinner with my sister and her best friend, William. =D. William knew I am a fan of Japanese food and thought I would really like to reminisce my days pigging out in Japan. he succeeded. =P.


a small bowl of Edamame for each of us!


huge fan of these mini ceramic products. the spoon is uber cute. super mini sized. you shall go there to see it hahaha.


this is William, my neighbour/sis’s best friend. always very thoughtful T_T *touched*.


chicken breast sticks and chicken soft bones. the soft bones are not as delicious as what I expected though. but still alright.


the chicken breasts are pretty awesome. unlike normal breast meat which are rough, dry and hard, these are smooth and chewy, one of my favourites here actually. it’s a MUST TRY. I especially liked the “mentai” one. mentai = mayones.


the bird eggs were.. just eggs. nothing too special in my opinion. but on the other hand, the other one, the ox tongue is SUPER AWESOME. we had so much of that. stick after stick. so so so so so good. the idea of it being OX’S TONGUE might seem weird and disgusting but seriously, it’s one of the best parts of the cow. =P.


the 3 layer pork meat, or what I call the “Samgyupsal” in Korean. yum yum yum.


squid! I sprinkled some chilli flakes on it because it’s better like that. hehehehe.


I have no idea what this is but it tasted like chicken fats. so sinful yet so delicious.


the ONIGIRI!! with salmon filling. I think that this is one of the MUST TRYs in this shop. what’s better than a ball of warm rice (triangle actually) with fresh seaweed and salty salmon filling. yum.


the ox’s tongue is me and my sis’s favourite hehehehe.


our bill came up to RM92.80. the prices are reasonable but we didn’t order alcoholic drinks so… hehehe.


I am not too familiar with this area but then as soon as you see BALLY cafe (because the Sumi-Ka restaurant is very very hidden), look opposite. it’s very near.


Sumi-Ka’s dim signboard. the lights reflecting to it makes it hard to notice but you’ll find it =D. it’s around those shoplots near Inti/Taylors College. those shops behind Asia Cafe.

do you know why Wang Lee Hom is dubbed as the “Music Man“?

it’s because he can play a crazy number of instrumetns. probably the most among celebrities. piano, violin, bass, guitar, erhu, harmonica, drums, guzheng….. and the list goes on.

Food was a really nice treat to see in this blog… There aren’t many Japanese Resturants (Even less good ones) in South Africa… But I’d love to travel abroad to Japan and just eat to my hearts content. It’s the only time when I curse my studies and work but by two years from now I’ll be able to go overseas and tour around.

Some of these Lee Hom videos are just insane… tough competition right there.

Loved the blog 🙂
