Sumi-ka @ SS15, Subang Jaya,

Two weeks ago, my former dock brief mates, A and myself met for our occasional dinner at Sumi-ka Japanese restaurant. Ever since we completed our dock brief course back in 2005, we still meet up for dinner once in a while. Most of us are still in practice except for Kevin who has gone in-house. Time flies.

This time round, we had dinner at this hidden but well known Japanese yakitori restaurant. It’s a haunt for many Japanese salarymen and families. You know a Japanese restaurant is good if Japanese eats there.

Door leading to Sumi-ka. You’ll see loads of rats and cockroaches before entering the door XD

Raw cabbage with special soy sauce is served as appetizer while you decide what you want. The owner cum Japanese chef will cook it once you decide.

The price of each stick of yakitori ranges from RM4 to RM9. One stick is quick small and it is usually not enough to share.

My personal favourites are the sweet potatoes, beef ribs and shitake mushrooms.

Sweet potatoes wrapped in foil.

It may be quite difficult to find the place. The entrance is a small door and it’s on the 2nd floor. Also, do make reservations if you’re coming in a big group.

Snowflake – Taiwanese Dessert Secret ้›ช่Šฑๆ ˆ @ SS15, Subang

I wish this place existed when I studied in Taylor’s College. This place serves awesome desserts and only desserts.

Its located on the 2nd floor of a shop house facing Asia Cafe. It’s a small shop and usually pack with people. Quite difficult to get a spot.

Queue to order is pretty long usually. However, meals are not served on the spot. A customer will be given an ‘UFO’.

It will beep when the meal is ready ๐Ÿ˜€

My personal favourite would be the “Best Sellerโ€ (Shaven ice + Grass Jelly + Grass Jelly Ice + Taroballs + Creamer) (RM6)

The orange colour stuff is called taroballs. They’re great! Chewy with tinge of yam/sweet potato in it ๐Ÿ˜€

Opening hours
Sunday – Thursday: 1pm to 10am
Friday and Saturday: 1pm to 12am
