Tomoe - Japanese Restaurant, Subang Jaya

Not our first time. We in fact have dined in Tomoe, let's twice or three times and Tomoe had not let us down yet. Back again to Tomoe where your parking matter will be taken over by the car jockeys. But this habit of them in hanging on their handphones can get to you. Regardless, they will attend to you or you have to draw their attention. Thereafter, walk into Tomoe and you will be greeted loudly in Japanese language and you will be also be ushered all the way from the lift right up to the second floor dining area. Take you seat wherever you like or where ever available. At the bar, at the individual dining rooms or at the centre open dining area. Subsequently. Menu popping up and you deciding between their quite a huge selection. Will take up your time mind you. In fact, even us. Each time we return before, you really don't know where to start. We flipping the menu over and over again, and then, agreeing on Hot Sake (small), Omakase Sashimi Moriawase (Sashimi - chef's specially for the day), Dada Chamame (Japanese steammed beans), Shisamo (Grilled pregnant fish), Aji Shioyaki (Grilled mackerel), Satoima Nikkaragashi (Yam balls) and Ike Asasi Miso Shiru ( Lala/Clams miso soup).

Sake of course arriving within a jiffy and we To start off, we had sake with the green steamed beans and sashimi. The sashimi was good - not everyday treat and significantly better than those we have tasted at many Japanese restaurants. By far this was the freshest varieties of seafood. Also a hearty portion but for two people, instantly polished off within a couple of minutes. Sake was a good choice as it went on well with the seafood and the green pods cased in the beans were fresh,

Next came the rest of the items. The grilled pregnant fish with bits of roe was another just so perfect with sake. Grilled for a lovely crispy outer and really crunchy, every bit of the fish can be nibbled including the head and without worrying about the bones. A little tinge of lemon juice will definitely further elevated the taste.   
Grilled mackerel was the other - grilled to perfection, superior in taste and texture and the soft-tender flesh easily ripped apart. 
The miso clam soup was a sweet melody. Elevated to the next level and further enriched with bonito flakes and miso, the broth was really flavourful.  
In between, we nibbled the yam balls in a soy-miso sauce, generously topped with flaky-crunchy bonito flakes. As we lifted each morsel to savour, it just crumbled in our mouth.
Tomoe  - for the fresh and tasty Japanese food and excellent customer service but pricey (RM388.70) and luckily that we had enough of cash because their credit card system was down.
