Watami Japanese Casual Restaurant @ One Utama

Watami Japanese Casual Restaurant is the latest addition of Japanese restaurant in One Utama. Absolutely loved the Watami Salad (RM18.90). It was fully of ingredients like crab stick, tuna mayo, prawns (which were really well marinated) and loads of greens. The dressing was like some creamy sesame dressing. It is pretty substantial on its own.

Shio Chanko (RM24.50) or also known as Sumo Wrestler's hot pot which I thought looks really plain but the soup was really tasty. Was quite surprised by how much it could fill us up as it really looked a little small at first. Then again, probably it was the salad that actually filled us up earlier. The hot pot is filled with scallop, chicken pieces, mushrooms, cabbage, tofu, carrots, tofu puff, clams, leeks and squid.

Yasai Itame (RM14.90) was stir fried vegetables with beef strips which would go very well with a bowl of rice as it was really salty! Too salty to eat by its own.

Unagi K'meshi (RM19.90) was steamed rice with unagi. The rice was cooked until the little burner burns out and add the unagi pieces to heat them up a little. The rice was a little too soft for my liking but was pretty flavourful. The unagi was just ok as I prefer the unagi served in Pasta Zanmai.

Personally, I find the food tasty but is not really authentic traditional Japanese food where it is very simple and focus on fresh ingredients and taste. The price is a little on the expensive side as well.
