I went to JB 3 weeks ago. My cousin over there brought me around for some nice food. So I'll inrtoduce the places that I personally find worth trying when you are in JB. This blog I'll introduce Sakura Cafe.
Its different from the sakura in KL (famous for nasi lemak), its just co-incidently share the same name. The environment setting of the cafe is really cosy, it gives you the old country cottage feeling with its antiques placed around the cafe. You'll definitely feel very much at home (thats what I feel that time :-p) as you can see from the 2 pictures below:
OK, enough of the intro, now lets get to their food The 1st dish is their claypot soy-sauce chicken. It taste nice, but nothing special about it.
Next, is their sizzling hot-plate tauhu. Its gravy is thick and with some minced-meat, it gives you a really nice combination. Taste wise, its nice, but nothing special though, however, the special thing is not its gravy, its actually their tauhu, its really TENDER SOFT!!! Its their home-made so its different from what other hauhu we get elsewhere.
Come next is their curry fish head. Its curry, is cooked with loads of santan and this makes it really THICK and CREAMY!!! It taste really GOOD too You'll find those typical curry fish head stuffs in it such as lady's fingers, cabbage, egg-plant…etc. There are many nice curry fish head in klang valley, but I had never tried 1 thats that THICK and CREAMY as this 1 before. I'll give it an 8 out 10
Now, comes my favourite dish of the night, the Steam-egg with otak-otak. The egg itself, I suppose they dint add any seasoning to it, but when its steamed together with otak-otak, its able to contain the taste flowed out from the otak-otak, thus making its taste well-blended. Its just brilliant because its mild and not salty as usually otak-otak tend to be quite salty.
The dishes that you find from its menu are familiar dishes that you'll be able to find in other restaurants. However, its cosy ambience that makes it stands out from a typical chinese restaurant. Well, I personally finds it a really nice place for couples to have a romantic dinner as its not crowded. Each table is well separated which gives privacy furthermore, its near Christmas, with its X'mas decor, it feels even better.
