What's for my lunch last Saturday morning/afternoon? It was IKU Yama & J Fusion Sushi located @ Damansara Uptown!

The restaurant was very easy to find, kudos to that ;) I attended their soft launch & I gotta say it's special bcos it is an upcoming healthy Japanese cuisine in fusion style w “fast food” concept.

IKU is a food outlet that provides speedy food service, let it be “Dine or Dash”. And unlike other Japanese food outlets, IKU has a combination of an extraordinary convenience w affordable prices & comprehensive selection of fusion Japanese cuisine.

IKU means “to go; to visit” in Japanese & “行” in Chinese. They are all about healthy “fast food” to cater fast paced lifestyle. Apart on having yet another fast food outlet for take away (which are mainly Western cuisine), they are giving an alternative to the public on serving Japanese cuisine in fusion style.

This restaurant gives the expression of “on the go” concept w their varities in the menu, from fusion sushi to special signature bento box.

With Chef Yama's extensive experience & his passion fr sushi, besides using the traditional soy sauce & wasabi combo, he created 10 special sauces to go w the sushi & bento box. “Fusion is in the sauce. I've made 10 different sauces just for a salmon,” says Chef Yama.

Cozy ambiance. Great for lunch meetings, casual dinners, & quick bites. And the weather was scorching hot outside but once I entered the restaurant the temperature was just nice. Definitely a plus point on the surrounding environment.

Lemmi tell you smtg, I normally hate everything green tea. Except the normal Japanese green tea that's all but when I tried these drinks above, to my surprise I fell in love! :O Especially w the middle one, the Matcha Latte. I drank like two cups of that. Soo good. A must-order the next time I'm there!

Can you say おいしい? The food was so flavorful I felt very spoiled by them haha. I am allergic to seafood but I can't help myself to the ebi tempura especially, the salmon belly sushi, unagi don, & prawn soup udon. Too yummy! Can't resist :b The Fusion Mango Waikiki is also smtg different; mango slices & sesame on top w salmon & shrimp roe and of course, their special fusion sauce.

Btw the most expensive dish on the menu is the Unagi Don, which is only RM26.80. Everything else is below RM30! :O IKU is definitely the ideal place to eat at if you're on a budget. Super worthy! If you're looking fr a healthier option + also pocket friendly w great taste, you should include IKU in yr list.
