Hyotan Japanese Restaurant - (SS15, Subang Jaya)


Patience supposedly is a virtue but sometimes my patience is tested beyond my will power, Hunger patience especially I can't contain. While waiting patiently for the friend from 1.00pm till almost 2.00pm, I was almost on the floor out of hunger though traffic jam may or may not be a valid reason. Anyway, the friend arrived, I couldn't even hold a decent conversation and after a short drive around SS15, we quickly decided on Hyotan.

Walking into the empty restaurant (same row as Kin Ryu Tei & Tomoe) with similar ambiance as other commercial Japanese restaurants, we quickly looked through the menu and almost instantly ordered.
Arriving within split seconds was the green tea, sort of the customary drink for Japanese food. Thereafter the mains - Saba Shio Bento and Salmon Bento Set

Saba set consisted of a bowl of egg custard combined with seafood and mushrooms, noodles, miso soup, fruits and salad. The egg custard according to my lunch companion was soft gooey and acceptable in taste, however, he preferred the noodles eaten after cracking and mixing in the quail egg and topped with seaweed. As for the rest of the items - always the pairing for such a bento set.

The Salmon Bento Set was presented with rice, raw salmon pieces, salad, vegetable pickle, fruits, tofu in soy sauce and Japanese sea weed.  Salmon tasted okay when eaten with rice and with the rest of the items, pretty much for the basic simple tastes. Basically, a no-frill meal, upon finishing off the items, my hunger has been cared for.

For desserts, we called for Vanilla Monaka and Green Tea Ice-Cream. Vanilla ice cream cased in the crispy waffle skin was smooth and creamy whereas the green tea ice-cream, upon the first mouth, well, the taste of the green teas was overwhelming instead of settling well with the sweetness.  


To say this meal was reasonably price, no. To say Hyotan is the place for true and true Japanese food, no but if you like a filling wholesome meal, you won't mind coming over. Also, such similar Japanese restaurants seem a big demand now and can be found almost anywhere you turn your head to.

  3. I guess sometimes one can't judge the food by the images. They all look so delicious and interesting. I love the vanilla monaka. If I hadn't read that bit about you reserving your comment on the quality of food, I'd have thought that you relished the lunch!

    Have a great week!

  12. Hey Nava, guess what? I often stock up those Japanese ice-cream wafers in my fridge, but I always buy the green tea flavours. I'm sure you can get it from the Japanese supermarkets in your area.

  16. Wasn't that great exploring restaurants as you walk down a road? I often do that. I would just go to even the non-fancy restaurants to discover that their food sometimes scores much better than their extremely pricey cousins. I loved the chawanmushi and and green tea ice cream. The salmon looks so fresh and lively! Great review!!
