Edo Ichi, Penang

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
Who says you can only get foie gras at a French restaurant? At Edo Ichi, they have the foie gras roll too. This maki roll comes with avocado, crab and of course the goose liver. I was initially a little skeptical about it, being not a fan of the fatty goose liver and all but it turned out to be quite refreshing to the palate
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
Green tea, black sesame and caramel ice cream for desserts

We also had their salmon with salt and cod with teriyaki sauce (not in picture) which were really delicious too. It was indeed a very filling and sumptuous lunch. Edo Ichi fortunately did not disappoint. The food were all pretty good and the price even though a little on the higher side, was worth it. It was easy to understand why it quickly became one of the Penangites favourite Japanese restaurant. Do remember to make a reservation during peak hours especially as the place is really crowded almost all the time. :)
