A few weeks ago, my family and I went to Rakuzen at Tropicana City Mall for a family dinner.

Knowing that this famous restaurant is always full especially during dinner time, we booked a private room in advance.

First, we ordered the Pari Pari Kani Salada. It's actually Crab Meat and Flying Fish Roe Salad with Chef's Special Dressing priced at RM28.00 / US$8.60

The salad was yummy! The sauce made it especially delicious. I could not get enough of it! This dish was shared amongst us, but next time I think I will order the whole plate for myself. LOL!

I could not decide what to order (too many choices in the menu!) but in the end I settled for Yakiniku Zen, a Grilled Beef Set priced at RM36.00 / US$11.00.

I was glad that I did not regret choosing this dish. The beef slices were tender and juicy. Love it!

And the Chawanmushi was delicious.

I tried a little bit of this grilled saba (mackerel) and I had to say it was yummy! Don't mind ordering this for myself next time.

Did not try this cod fish but I was pretty sure it was delicious.

We also ordered some garlic rice but I had forgotten to take a picture of it.

Lastly, Chicken Katsujyu Zen priced at RM28.00 / US$8.60

Looks yummy right? But surprisingly my brother who ordered this said it was just OK only.

The service here was not bad, and the environment pretty good too. I would say the food were a little pricey, but other than that, I am giving two thumbs up to Rakuzen. Can't wait to dine at this Japanese Restaurant again. Who wants to join me? : )
