Thanks to serendipity and some good research, we snapped up a deal at Groupon which we paid $20 for a meal worth $40. It’s a really good deal I would say, especially when the food at Megumi Japanese Restaurant did not disappoint.
The Chawanmushi came as part of the Complete Side ($6.00), which include Shiro Gohan (white rice) and miso soup. I have always been a fan of Chawanmushis and have become a bit of a connoisseur of it! This great tasting treat was silky smooth which slid down your throat once it was inside your mouth.
The Unagi Yanagawa Nabe ($11.80), was heavily flavoured with thick gooey teriyaki sauce. A great dish to go with your white rice.
Bacon Hotate Teriyaki ($10.80), was something I found quite unique. Hotate which means scallop in Japanese was quite the perfect mix with bacon. However, this probably was not the most value for money dish because E and I were busy removing the leek which we detested!
Ebi Tempura ($15.00) was deep-fried to perfection. It was crispy on the outside and the prawn was really crunchy and fresh.
A Japanese meal can never be complete without sashimi. Though it was not sliced cleanly, Salmon Belly Sashimi($12.00) still topped the lot.
Megumi Japanese Restaurant is a family restaurant. Kids were everywhere screaming which could seriously dampen a good meal. Fortunately, the great food more than made up for it. Business is brisk here so make your reservations or come early!
