When I was up in Penang recently, knowing my love for Japanese cuisine, HT brought me to the Penangites current most favourite Japanese restaurant, the Edo-Ichi. He insisted that I had a try there as he claimed that it is the top Japanese restaurant on the island right now. Located inside a relatively quiet mall, the Island Plaza, this considerable newcomer to the Penang Japanese food scene is thriving and the place was packed even on a weekday.
|We started off with this soft shell crab and salmon skin salad with sesame dressing. The best part is the sesame dressing honestly. It is the bomb that makes this bowl of salad totally awesome|
|Hotate carpaccio. Love the freshness of the scallops|
|This is one of my favourite there- the Edo Ichi eel and salmon pizza. Totally yummy can|
|The Aka Ebi, Argentina prawns sashimi style. The prawns were really fresh it was so good eating them raw like that|
|We had them cooked the tempura style too but I seriously felt for such freshness, it was way better eating them raw|
|Fried baby shrimps|
|Fried salted mackerel|
