I want more


If you asked me what is my favorite kind of food, I would say Japanese is my number one favorite. So when Poesy Liang invited me to her brother’s Japanese Restaurant, Fukuharu, to taste the Japanese food there, I accepted the invitation without hesitation. Usually I am not keen to drive to down town but I would for good Japanese food.

Although the building does not look very impressive the environment looks serene. The interior was simple but clean and pleasant.




When the host, Poesy and rest of the guests arrived, we started our food tasting and the first dish was seafood korokke, croquette with scallop and prawn. It was delcious. 



Price: RM22.0 per serving

Next was, their award winning sushi, tamago mentai sushi. The moment I put the sushi in my mouth, I just involuntarily made a sound, “mmmmm” and then I heard echo of the same sound from the others. Do I have to elaborate how delicious the sushi was or you are already drooling looking at the photos? LOL! 




Price: RM15.00 per piece

I would gladly pay the price and one piece will not be enough. I want more. I did not have enough so I bought four pieces home.

Next on the list was the Chef’s sashimi selection with truffle oil and wasabi dressing. According to the head Chef, the fish served are different everyday because it depends what fish are available for the day and they are always fresh. I will let you judge for yourself on the freshness of the fish by looking at the photos. Can you tell?






A meal will not be complete without a salad isn’t it? We had salmon tataki salad consisted of flash-seared salmon with homemade Caesar salad dressings.


Price: RM28.00 per serving

Before we finished the salad, we were served a bowl of chawan mushi each.  I found the chawan mushi a little too watery for me but the flavor was good.

Price: RM12.00
The next dish was lamb moromisoyaki which is marinated lamb with moromiso. It looked awesome but I don’t take lamb so I did not get to taste it. The others tasted it and gave their two thumbs up.  I can’t help but to order a serving to take home for my Quay Lo to try. My Quay Lo agreed with the rest that the flavor was superb. This is the only dish that I  think was too pricey because they are very small pieces of lamb or maybe it is because I do not know how to appreciate lamb? LOL!


Price: RM35.00 per serving

We were then served two claypots of rice. They were Hotate Kamameshi or scallop claypot rice and Unagi Kamameshi or eel claypot rice. 

I liked the Unagi Kamameshi more because it was delicious and the addition of tamarind gave the rice a unique flavor.  I enjoyed it so much that I ordered a serving to take home to have for dinner with my Quay Lo. 



Price: RM35.00 per pot

The Hotate Kamameshi was too blend for me. I would put more seasoning to the scallops. 


Price: RM35.00 per pot

Our dessert was black sesame cheese cake with freshly brewed coffee.





Oh I almost forgot about the ice cream we had. We were served three different flavors. Mango, green tea and black sesame. The black sesame ice cream was awesome with a distinctive sesame flavor which I seldom get from black sesame ice cream I had in the past.

I would like to thank Poesy for introducing me to her brother’s restaurant and a wonderful "makan" (food tasting) experience. I will be back with my Quay Lo and will not hesitate to recommend Fukuharo to all our friends, who love Japanese food. 

For those who would like to find out more about Fukuharu read reviews of customers who had been there, you might want to go to GoMakan. This is a fairly new food directory portal. According to their executive officer, Shin Kajiwara, "It was set up with the aim of encouraging effective communication, to provide accurate information and to review customers input." 

There were many food directory portals that I have used before when I want to read customers' reviews of restaurants that I have not been and want to tryGoMakan had all the search features other similar portals had plus one. The comparison feature was what I like the most. I am able to make a comparison of four restaurants side by side. Do check it out and I think you will be using GoMakan as much as I do from now on to "cari makan" (look for food).

  14. Looks like we both had the pleasure of some interesting Japanese food lately. I love Japanese, one of my many comfort foods. Anytime is a good time for Japanese food.
    These look very good. The prices are a little steep but if they're really good, then I guess it's worth at least a try.

  15. Quay Po, have you changed setting on your blog? I haven't been able to see your update in blog from my dashboard now & I could only find out either through other's friends' blog or Facebook! That's why I'm either always late or missed some of your old posting! Just now, I did a testing by scrolling down the blogs that I'm following up for 2 days ago & I still couldn't see this post here.

    By the way, I love all the food that you shared with us here except for lamb as I don't eat lamb.
