Pretty good value for money in the city centre. The set will definitely fill you up, with five nigiri, a cucumber maki, takoyaki, chawanmushi, salad and soba. The salmon and tuna were both melt-in-the-mouth fresh, but can’t say the same for the other nigiris. Try coming back for those two!

Note that open-space concept at Nori is almost food court-like, so it’s not very private (unless you opt for the outdoor smoking terrace).


This cafe is at the same location as the Mazda Showroom at Jalan Sg Besi. I had the classic cheese cake and it was lovely. Coffee is quite good too. It is a nice place to chill and it’s spacious. With good food and drinks,’s a pretty nice place to hang out!!


Pork and veggie stuffed dumplings are what I want to eat all day! Again, they all came with a lovely smokiness and the edges are super crispy! You must dip them in the tangy chilli sauce – so good!


Tropicana Avenue’s latest yakitori bar is where it’s at for cheap beer, good food and for a place that’s away from the city’s hustle and bustle. The skewers are good. All of them come with a nice char and smokiness that gives extra flavour like the Thigh with leek – so much extra sweetness in the leek! The okra was a pleasant surprise with a nice crunch.

The Gyu Don was so so so good! I usually only eat a bit of rice, but I finished the entire bowl. Generous serving of sweet sliced beef with egg.

Pork mix Toji Set ((RM30.20) 👍👍
≈ pork katsu, beef & ebi
