Proposal Dinner @ Rakuzen, Hartamas Shopping Centre

First and foremost, I would like to express my gratitude to all my beloved readers for all da congratulation notes and all da meaningful, kind wishes to both of us. It's a blessing, really! I am extremely happy and touched, thank you!!!!!!!!! :D

On da day darling proposed to me, I was really on cloud nine and I kid you not :p

Happily ever after :D

Came dinner time, he brought me to Rakuzen Japanese Restaurant knowing that I love Japanese food. This time, we headed to da Hartamas outlet which's located on da highest floor of Hartamas Shopping Centre. Initially, we wanted to drive down town for a fine dining but unfortunately, there were closure of roads for King's Installation da very next day. Anyways, no big deal cause I managed to have a decent meal at my favourite Japanese Restaurant! :D

Hama Sashimi is what we usually order here but that night, darling wanted something different so we opt for Iso Sashimi instead. Priced at RM 75, there's a combination of Toro, Kanpachi, Salmon, Amaebi, Hotate and Tako. OOoooooo soooooo fresh and yummmmy!

We've tried Dragon Roll, Stamina Roll, Unagi & Avocado Roll hence we decided to try something new, a Spider Roll :p For da price of RM 18, we find this Fried Soft Shell Crab roll topped with Flying-fish Roe pretty good! Like all da Rolls we've tried before, it didn't disappoint us :)

Next up, Grilled Scallop with Spicy Cod Roe and Mayonnaise, RM 25 for two pcs. Fantastic, you really have to try this cause it's absolutely creamy and delicious!

Another fabulous dish at Rakuzen, Braised Eel and Burdock (a wild, hardy plant) in Yanagawa-style. Priced at RM 18, this's best eaten with Rice cause da broth is flavourful!

That night, I didn't have my favourite Cha Soba but I went for Inaniwa Udon (RM 22) which was superbly good! Da texture of this Noodle is rather different and I love it! :D

I am always amaze with this eatery, packed even on a weekday O_o No doubt, they really serve very yummy Japanese food! :D

Primrose said...

You know Mei Yen? It's so ironic. I was *just* thinking of you this evening and was wondering if your other half has proposed because it's 2007 and they say it's a good year for marriages. So I decided to come and read updates today and ***toing toing toing!! boing boing boing***

I'm so happy for you. :) :) :)

Hey MeiYen .... as lost as I usually am ... so sorry I seemed to be the last one to realise what was going on. But nevertheless, I wish both of you the best of years to come ... many more I believe. And yeah ... the night was really messy .. didn't had much chance to talk. But really nice to know both you and Bob. Hope to see you guys again ....
