Who knew that a gem serving Japanese fusion food could be hidden in Glass City, Sri Petaling? I've been living in Bukit Jalil for the past 10 years and this is the first time I actually like the food served in an outlet, just 10 minutes away from my house. Sri Petaling is a well-known place, frequent by your adults in search for good food. Now, there are tonnes of cafe mushrooming in the vicinity but I would highly recommend Minamotonoya Cafe!
This place has only been opened for 3 months but there were regular patrons coming in every now and then during the time we were there. The concept of the cafe is Japanese fusion with Western style, according to Nexus (the chef as well as the boss of this cafe).
I felt this cosy outlet which has a calming effect from the moment you step in would be a perfect place to laze around on the weekends. Or, perhaps just drop by for a quick lunch.
They even have these cute little corners for those of you who wish to work there on your computers.
And, this is what attracted me the most. For the price of RM 9.90, you can get the lunch set which comprises of the main dish + ice lemon tea. It's the perfect deal for us university students who are tight on budget, but yet wants to dine out HAHA!
Here comes the food we were served and these are the recommended dishes by the restaurant themselves. By the way, this time, I decided to include the price (ala carte).
Bacon Egg Sandwiches (RM 10.90)
This glorious sandwich is made up of two piece of homemade ciabatta bread with slices of smoked bacon, fried egg and salad and mayonnaise dressing. I was surprised to hear that even the bacon is made by the chef himself. The bacon is cured for 3 days and consecutively, it is smoked and sliced before it is served. This was a unique twist to the usual sandwich because of the texture of the bacon which complimented the soft, fluffy ciabatta bread made from 80% water.
Wafu Shimeji Mushroom Aglio Olio (RM 10.90)
This spaghetti dish is cooked 'aglio olio' style using olive oil therefore it isn't dry like others you have dried before. The bonito flakes topping brought out the flavour of the spaghetti and the mushrooms were very fresh and chewy :)
Spaghetti served with Teriyaki Chicken (RM 10.90)
Served to us in 'aglio olio' style too, however, for this particular dish, you could request for it to the served in white sauce (carbonara) too. The chicken meat was tender and juicy as chicken thigh was used. Scrumptious and flavorful!
Spaghetti served with Fried Cheese Pork Chop (RM 15.90)
A dish of spaghetti in 'aglio olio' style with shimeji mushrooms and some cherry tomatoes. The highlight of this dish would be the cheese pork chops that is served together. Don't they look heavenly? I'm drooling as I'm typing this. The pork chop consists of rolled pork dipped in breadcrumbs and then, deep fried to golden brown. Cheese sauce is then poured over it and this was my personal favourite because I'm your die-hard cheese lover. Oh, take note, you may request for this to be served with red sauce (bolognese) style too!
Tofu Cheese Cake (RM 9.90)
Made from scratch by the chef, this no bake tofu cheese cake is the ultimate comfort food. A heavenly dessert made from mixing soft tofu with soya. The cheese flavour isn't too strong since this is the Japanese way of preparing their cheese cake. Very smooth and soft due to the high quality Philadelphia cream cheese used!
Water Mochi (RM 6.90)
Cutest dessert ever! Don't be fooled, this is just water mochi jelly on a plate with unique design. This looks too good to be eaten, right? The chef prepared some brown sugar and caramel sauce and added some roasted soya bean powder to be served with the chewy, transparent grass jelly! This is different from the usual Konnyaku jelly by the way because of its texture which isn't so bouncy.
