Once we ordered, we were served with a small plate of cold dish. I do not know what it was, but I sure like the taste of it.
Salmon Tofu Nabe (RM20). The ingredients (variety of mushrooms, tofu, salmon and vege) and the soup was put on top of a piece of paper. This paper was placed on top of a fire to boil it up. The soup was sweet due to the ingredients, the longer I boiled, the sweeter the soup was. However, I think I do not like the soup taste, it somehow taste weird to me. This is strictly personal taste, coz boy boy thought the soup was ok.
Eringi Ninniku Shoyu Grill (RM18), translated into grill king mushroom. Once boy boy and I ate the first piece, it was an instant hit! Super tastey! The mushroom was marinated with lots of garlic paste, thus giving it a strong tint of garlic taste. Being a super garlic lover, this dish was dem good! However, the mushroom became saltier and saltier as the longer it was grilled. No doubt, this is the best grill mushroom ever as I didnt taste such nice grill mushroom anywhere before. A total must order next time!
Boy boy ordered Sashimi and Tempura set (RM48). Actually I already half expected he will order sashimi and to my expectation, he initially ordered Sashimi set. At the end, he changed to Sashimi plus tempura. I think he knows that I love to eat tempura, and I didnt order any tempura, so he changed to the set with tempura. When it arrived, he straight away gave me the one and only prawn tempura. Aww....so sweet of him.
5 types of sashimi. I asked boy boy what is the difference between Zanmai sashimi and Ninja Jones. He said almost the same, both also are fresh and same size (but I think NJ served thicker slice of sashimi). Means that next time we will just eat Zanmai sashimi lor like that, which is like 40% cheaper than NJ. Hehe.
Boy boy, unlike me, I already told him that I wanna take picture of him already, and he considered this as posing liao, then he complained not nice. SWT!
It was a nice dinner and we had a good conversation during the dinner. Having been with him for so many years, he still managed to surprise me with his new childhood stories and experiences. I used to talk the most usually (being a chatty person), but today he did talk quite a bit. Not that I dominate the whole conversation, but the fact is he likes to listen to me, :P. If I keep quiet, he would be thinking something bad or sad happened to me, and he would be panic. I like to hear him talk though, like to hear his voice.
It's good to have a quiet and high class dinner once in a while to refresh the relationship (not that my relationship has gone bad, mind you). Is a similar concept when couples have a getaway trip to somewhere to refresh the relationship.
As a whole, Ninja Jones was a good recommendation by Nicole, in fact, it does lived up to my expectation actually. NJ charges 10% service charge, but they provide free ocha and free wet towel.Ninja Jones Japanese Restaurant
