Edo Ichi Japanese Cuisine (江户一) @ Island Plaza, Penang.

This is one of the most popular Japanese restaurants in this area. I suggest that if you want to dine in this restaurant, you better make a reservation especially at night and during weekend.
We been to this place for several times and I remembered that we left due to full house and without reservation. 

Food that we savour:

Unagi Ishiyaki - RM43
We love this eel fried rice in hot stone. The rice texture at the bottom of the hot stone is a bit crispy and taste delicious. Love the fragrant of the rice. The eel is very deliciously grilled.
Saba Shioyaki - RM19
We oredered this mackerel with salt as one of the dish to try out. It tastes very delicious.
We also tried this during one of our set lunch on one of the visit. It cost RM28 with a bowl of rice, miso soup, cawanzhen, pickles and salads.
Karei No Kimuchi Chige Ko Nabe - RM35
We ordered this hot pot with sole fish and vegetable in Kimuchi paste soup since my aunty loves Kim chi flavours.
My family feel that it is a bit spicy but for me is still acceptable just feel a bit salty to my liking.
The combination of vegetables and fish in the pot is very fresh and delicious.

Yasai Roll - RM19
Then I decided to order vegetables roll with cucumber, avacado, carrot and beetroot.
This vegetables roll is very delicious and tasty. We quite enjoy this compare to the normal sushi roll. 

Japanese Pepper

Kamo Shoyu Ramen - RM28
We were suggested to try this duck ramen since we would like to try one ramen. So since it is one of the recommendations, we gave this a try. 
The duck slice is very tender and taste delicious. We love the texture of the ramen. It is very springy and not soggy just like the way we love it. 
The soup base is very delicious too.

Tori Teba Moto Spicy Age - RM19
This is a bit spicy and salty for my family members. But it has a nice aroma and the chicken is very tender.

You can choose from either chocolate or matcha flavours of ice-cream.

FoOd PaRaDiSe verdict:

Normally, I will straight eat the peanut barley candy. It's my first time having it with the Poh Piah skin. Something new for me. However, it's a bit too sweet for my liking. They also sell other products such as peanut candy and sauces (such as sweet sauce, chillies sauce and others).
