My friend gave me a brochure on a Japanese restaurant called Tonki Bento near Pulau Tikus (Lintang Burmah Road, to be exact), so I decided to try it out this Friday. The place is hard to find if you are not familiar with the road there (note that it is not Lorong Burmah Road). Fortunately it is kind of smooth in finding the place. The menu is similar to the one my friend gave me (you can download it below). Other than providing dine-in service, the shop also provides delivery service. I tried to order one Sushi Bento but unfortunately they are unable to make it due to high delivery order (DUH!). As a result, I ordered Chicken and Salmon Teppanyaki set worth RM15.00. Both chicken and salmon taste excellent. A funny thing is that even though I am dining in, the plate and miso soup’s cup are served by take out plastic container. Perhaps this is also a “delivery service”…. to my table.
Anyway, the environment is nicely decorated. There is even a book shelf full of Japanese magazines (excluding *ehem* one). I took a Crayon Shin Chan comic and read while waiting for the lunch to be ready… even though I dunno Japanese.
