最近大人身边有许多挚友似乎都面临了同一个烦恼:周末举家出游既想与全家人享用一顿上佳美味,却总碍于生活消费指数逐渐升高而无法尽兴。大人真切明白啊~ 因为今日大人光临的店家,正是有此同理心才萌生概念,打造了能让全家人愉悦用餐的平价和风餐馆「Yuzu」

We love Japanese food, and we know many who never tire of it. However, many tend to associate quality Japanese food with excessive spending, especially when dining in groups or with families but that’s not always the case. Being overly passionate for anything Japanese, we decided to source for quality and affordable Japanese joints in Johor Bahru to sustain our insatiable appetite, leading us to this modest eatery opened by owner Chef Jeffrey that is family friendly, casual and cosy, where groups and families can enjoy a good meal here affordably.

经主人提点,大人方知原来日语中 Yuzu 乃柚子之意,属常用的柠檬类调味。以原始工业风颠覆传统雅致和风的 Yuzu,未尝即先让人耳目一新啊!2016年12月31日於古来开业后即迅速掳获广大饕客的欢心,原因为何?「上菜时间迅速!价格好合理!」这一点大人最能感同身受啦,不晓得餐桌上是否也有魔咒,每一回最饿的那位总得等最久啊~虽以平价出击,主人家在食材选用方面却没有因此而妥协,大部分皆坚持从日本进口,越说越让人期待了啊!

Epitomising the soul of Japan and an indispensable seasoning used in Japanese cooking, the universally-loved Yuzu is a citrus fruit used to add a distinct flavour and tanginess to a dish, bringing with it a refreshing touch and concept to the local dining scene. Located near AEON Mall Kulai and only recently opened on the final day of 2016, you can always pop by Yuzu for a meal when you’re in town and are in need of a good Japanese meal fix. The interior is air conditioned with an industrial chic decor and equipped with simple but comfortable furnishings, providing a subtle lavishness that lives up to the quality of their food for taste and freshness without burning a hole in our pockets.

无限添加绿茶 Free Flow Green Tea

贴心之举何止反映在售价与服务上,饕客们也可自行为绿茶无限续杯噢!

Yuzu serves up trusty set meals that come with free-flow green tea to complement our orders, how’s that for a great start?

实惠套餐 Gozen

一人一套,感情不散!这儿的价码绝对能让一家之主放心点餐噢!

先来瞧瞧大人逢到必点的日式照烧鲭鱼套餐 (RM20.90),这一尾鲭鱼份量毫不欺场啊!「咸香脆口的微焦皮衣配搭鲜甜的肉质真让人爱不释口啊!份量慷慨的白饭绝对饱足。」

价格诱人的日式炸鸡块套餐 (RM12.90) 定会是许多饕客们的首选,咸香多汁的炸鸡块份量颇大,绝对有物超所值之感;不喜炸物?那就来份日式照烧鸡套餐 (RM12.90),微焦的皮衣均匀蘸上照烧酱汁与芝麻,未吃先香,裹着汁嫩味美的鸡肉一道送入口中,大人内心暗赞主人家真是深明饕客的心胃啊~

浓甜的咖喱香搭以金黄色泽的香炸鸡肉,这套辣度属中辣的日式咖喱鸡排套餐 (RM15.90) 并无使用味精调味噢!「体贴的主人家还特将咖哩酱汁另置,让炸鸡能时保爽脆口感。」

For rice lovers, most of their Gozen sets range from RM10.90 to RM20.90, but their low prices don’t compromise their quality either. When we could have such “oishii” Japanese food at decidedly affordable rates, served with house made kimuchi, tofu, miso soup and dessert, there is a set for everyone!

The Saba Fish Set has always been our perennial favourite, with a generous slab of perfectly grilled mackerel fish sufficiently juicy with flavourful chunky, flaky flesh filled with omega-3 goodness!

The Karage Chicken Set is also hugely popular, with these juicy morsels tender on the inside, yet crispy on the outside and good enough on its own without any need for dipping sauce; while the Teriyaki Chicken Set is a wonderful blend of sweet and savoury. Lathered with sweet sticky teriyaki sauce so generous and tasty, we could feel we are getting our money’s worth.

Japanese Curry Set lovers rejoice, as the curry is made with vegetable stock and mild spices (with no MSG added), so it is sweet spicy, somewhat sinful but so so good; while the chicken cutlet was fried to a nice crisp and has a thick layer of crunchy skin and crust wrapped around the chicken which isn’t dry at all.

日式照烧三文鱼饭 Teriyaki Salmon Don

食验味星 (一般为五星满级,偶尔会爆表) / Rating ★★★☆

大人再一次被所标示的价格折服,份量不小的日式照烧三文鱼饭 (RM13.90) 不止饭量可观,连三文鱼片也几乎将白饭给覆盖着了!「三文鱼片的外层微焦香脆,咀嚼后散发淡淡芝麻香。咸淡适中的照烧汁超下饭!」

Hontō (oh really)? Isn’t this Teriyaki Salmon Don simply a steal for a mere RM13.90? With a slight coating of buttery fat, the salmon is delicious, juicy and so soft that it falls apart in giant pink flakes and when it enters our mouth, disintegrates instantaneously.

绿茶荞麦冷面 Cha Soba

单价低于RM10的日式冷面 (RM8.90) 向来是味喜清淡的饕客首选,共备有有绿茶荞麦面和荞麦面两种选择。「咀嚼后散发荞麦淡香的面条颇富筋道,汤汁比例甚好。」

Given the unpredictability and hot weather spells ahead, we thought you might fancy a Zaru Noodles just below RM10, with a choice of soba or Cha Soba. We thoroughly enjoyed the latter for it’s soft and springy texture, but let’s not forget how aromatic and sweet the broth was.

温泉蛋拉面 / 鸡肉泡菜拉面 Onsen Tamago & Chicken Kimchi Ramen

Yuzu 所选用的拉面皆是新鲜的冷冻拉面 (chilled),筋道饱满。在65ºC的水温下经慢煮45分钟的温泉蛋,口感超顺滑,这碗温泉蛋拉面 (RM8.90) 汤清味美,简单又心暖。

以自家腌制的泡菜烹调而成的鸡肉泡菜拉面 (RM12.90),微酸辣的汤底不会过于厚重。主人家再次祭出慷慨份量,几乎每一勺拉面皆能配以鸡肉与豆腐啊!

If you are not a big fan of cold noodles, there are other hot Ramen and Udon dishes to choose from. We simply adored the good, fresh and wobbly Onsen Tamago, a definite show stopper that’s perfectly slow cooked at 65ºC for 45 minutes with the cooked egg whites and runny yolk inside. When we mixed everything together, the dish just became a heavenly blend of hearty goodness.

We were also amazed at the amount of ingredients and effort that’s poured into making the Chicken Kimchi Ramen, and yet still amount to a small price of RM12.90. Honestly, this is our idea of Japanese comfort food at its best, and the portions of chicken and tofu were sizeable which made it a good value meal.

章鱼烧 Takoyaki

被大量柴鱼片与酱汁所覆盖的章鱼烧 (RM7.90) 还真是对准大人的胃口啊!不晓得各位看官们每一回在外点选章鱼烧时会不会内心暗暗期待店家能失手撒多一些咸香的柴鱼片呢?在 Yuzu, 主人家就是如此善解人意,大人不需要妄想就能得偿所愿!

Honestly, who could get enough of this Takoyaki with bonito flakes happiness right? The spongy flour balls with diced octopus fillings dressed with mayonnaise and bonito flakes were really fresh and went well with the takoyaki coating. A definite favourite among the younger set!

免费饭后甜品 – 芒果布丁 Mango Pudding

也太深明待客之道了吧!饭后每位饕客们还可获赠一份Q弹的芒果甜布丁作为甜点噢!大人这下子得马上通报好友们,点餐时无需再担心银弹无存啊~ 肚子饱饱,荷包也不消瘦噢!

据悉 Yuzu 已在紧锣密鼓筹备第二家分行了噢,地点就在茂奥斯汀的美食战区!东北区的看官们不必再望图兴叹了噢 🙂

We really, really love mango pudding, and kids are heads over heels in love with them too, so that makes this a sweet ending to a genuinely satisfying meal!

Yuzu is one of our top picks that will satisfy all tummies without costing an arm and a leg to take the entire family as everyone’s preferences will be satisfied. With a large variety of extremely affordable set meals to choose from and a second outlet opening in Taman Mount Austin come April 2017, Yuzu will be our go-to Japanese food place for a long while.
