Fukuya, Bangsar Baru

It was a rather impromptu decision to have dinner at Fukuya..
I wanted to have japanese and SL suggested Fukuya...
Bollywood Queen decided to join us and we join drove to the rather posh Bangsar Baru area where the row of pretty bungalow restaurants stood.
It was quiet when we walked in, the usually noisy and boisterous Bollywood Queen was suddenly very tame.
This is too civilised for me, she whispered..
I cant help it but to laugh out loud :D
We had some Yu Tofu (beancurd in claypot)
It was somewhat like a warm version of DIY Hiyayakko..
Beancurd in hot water...The ingredients..
Mix everything and wahlah..The end result. Beancurd was very smooth, lovely to just slurp it all in. But I find the sauce too sour..too much puzu(lemon juice) in the soy sauce?
Some Enoki bata yaki which is straw mushroom grilled in butter..I thought this was nice, the enoki still had some crunch while it's juices were retain..Goes well with the slightly thick butter sauce. SL didn't like it though..
The Unagi to chiri padi maki ( eel with bird's eye chilli roll) was a rather generous serving..As the roll was deep fried before serving, the maki was warm and had a very crispy exterior. Quite substaintail unagi in each piece though the chilli didn't really make it's presence felt, my only complaint was that the maki was not rolled tightly. It sort off falls apart everytime we tried to take a piece of the sushi. Still, this maki was tasty nonetheless.
Soft shell crab tempura..
Was glad that it didn't have traces of oil clinging to it. This was an ok dish.
Toriniku Teriyaki (grilled chicken with teriyaki sauce) which came with salada and potato salad..The grilled chicken was juicy, meat was tender. But the 2 ladies enjoyed the potato salad better.
I kinda like this restaurant as I find it quite a nice place to have quiet dinners and cosy chats with family/ friends. And to have Bollywood Queen whispering throughout the dinner and be a tad lady like: priceless.
Fukuya Authentic Japanese Cuisine is located at 63B, Jalan Ara, Bangsar Baru, KL.

unagi+cili padi maki?, wasabi was substituted with bird eye chili or was it still included in the maki? both provide a different kind of fiery taste, i guess. interesting.
