Japanese Restaurant Sushi Kappo Miyasaka, Pulau Tikus – Authentic Yet Affordable Japanese Food

There are a lot of Japanese restaurants in Penang which are very famous and popular, with just a stone’s throw you definitely will find at least one Japanese restaurant. However, if you are talking about authentic, reasonable yet not too crowded, there is only a handful of them. The authenticity of Japanese food is not judged by others but the Japanese’s customers themselves. It is like a Penangite knows which stall serves the best Penang Laksa. The restaurant that I have discovered to have a cosy ambience with authentic and reasonable Japanese food is Sushi Kappo Miyasaka.

The location of the restaurant is not difficult to find, the only problem is on the one-way traffic system which will take you to a big turning. For those that come from Penang Bridge, you will need to drive through Jalan Masjid. You will have to pass by Jalan Utama. At this road on your right junction, look for Jalan Brown and turn into it. Keep driving until you  reach a T-junction then follow the one way street which is to your right. Keep driving for another 200 meters and look on your right where you can see Maybank. Restaurant Sushi Kappo Miyasaka is just a few doors away.

Teriyaki Salmon – RM17, the salmon fillet was pan fried with teriyaki sauce to perfection. It was served with 2 side dishes, which are different on a daily basis. There was also a slice of fruit and a bowl of miso soup.

Another unique feature of this restaurant is the Japanese rice is served with a sprinkle of sour plum powder. This is the authentic way of serving Japanese rice. It makes the rice more appetizing flavorful.

Simmered Chicken with Egg Sauce – RM17, the egg sauce is similar to the above dish. The only difference is the dish is served with simmered chicken instead of deep fried pork slices.

Between simmered chicken and deep fried pork, I still prefer deep fried pork. This is because you can feel the crispiness and the tasty flavor of the pork meat.

Overall, this is a quiet and cozy place. The food is authentic and price is very reasonable. The only drawback is the lack of parking space. You can still find some public parking along the shop houses, but they are always fully occupied even on weekends.
