The Other Japanese Goodies - Ninja Jones, Northpoint

After posting on the Japanese goodies earlier, I looked through my archives (yes, yet again!) and decided to finally post on Ninja Jones. Just like the Japanese goodies, Japanese food are usually presented in a visually appetizing way and they do taste good (can't say the same for the earlier cakes I posted on). The first time I was at Ninja Jones was for Precious Pea's birthday celebration and the 1st JFKA (Japanese Food Kawan Association) Meeting! This took place late last year; by now you should know just how dated some of the pics in my archives are!. Hahaha... Well, 5 of us ended up ordering a whole lot of food! Subsequently I have gone back and tried more items. Here are some pictorial evidence of the food we ate in Ninja Jones which has now been long digested and "processed" ;p. Not many words necessary, enjoy the visual treat!

Ninja Jones

Avocado and Soft Shell Crab Namaharumaki
Avocado and Soft Shell Crab Namaharumaki (RM22/USD6.70) with light sourish sauce.
Grill
Next, the grill was set for our next dish...
Kobe Beef
Kobe Beef (RM130 per 100 gram/USD40 per 100 gram). We ordered 150 grams and the five of us had three slices each. It was a chance for me to try this acclaimed meat; it was lovely but I wasn't bowled over.
Eringi Ninniku Shoyu Grill
Eringi Ninniku Shoyu Grill (RM15/USD40.60) - Being a mushroom fan, I found myself really enjoying this dish. Thinly sliced mushroom with light shoyu; it's one dish that I usually order each time I dine here. I think I shall attempt doing my own version at home one day :o)
Volcano Roll
Volcano Roll (RM30/USD9.20 for 6 pieces) - Now this was a surprise hit for me as I don't like unagi . However, the combination of the ebiko (prawn roe) and unagi roll topped with cheese was just too delicious for me not to like. The rest of the JFKA's members were proud of me that day! Hahaha....
Salmon Zukushi
Salmon Zukushi (RM38/USD9.20) - A combo platter of salmon, salmon belly and salmon roe. Obviously something not ordered by me but I do like the way it looked :o).
Spider Roll
Spider Roll (RM18/USD5.50) - Soft shell crab rolled with cucumber and topped with bonito flakes which was crunchy delicious.

Precious Pea said...

My Hubby like this place too! Yumz...i think i will try to make the mushroom at home. Er..where to get the charcoal burner??

jo said...

I miss uni, and ikura don only in Hokkaido! weird ah, Japanese food lover who doesn't like raw fish and even unagi. I am one who doesn't like Japanese sticky rice (except for sushi). hahaha also weird! Go fishing Hokkaido! Forget about Tsukiji Tokyo...

If u didn't bowl over Kobe beef next time try Matsuzaka beef or Hida beef. Don't know lah, of all Wagyu i still think Kobe beef is the best, eaten in Kobe lah not flyed over...

jason said...

Maybe should ask my boss to come here :)

CK Lam said...

Tempting food in a nice place... love the cool and mysterious ninja guy character.

daphne said...

tigerfish said...

Sounds expensive but for the quality, seems worth it!

Lyrical Lemongrass said...

such bootiful pictures! I didn't have a very good meal in Ninja Jones recently. The sashimi was not fresh and in the process of thawing.

J2Kfm said...

JFKA? hehe, can I join? LOL
seems a bit overpriced la, the food. really worth the visit?
din notice this shop in Midvalley though.

wmw said...

Nic : Dunno, see when is the next general meeting called?

Cynthia : and we should be able to eat them too! hahaha...

Precious P : Do BBQ style? Put on top of wire mesh?

Jo : Of course lah, how to top your first hand experience??? :p

Jason : Yes, and bring you along of course.

ck lam : Yes, especially at night time. Thanks for dropping by.

Daphne : Yes, it does look good (given the fact that I didn't eat it! Hahaha)

Jeromefo:Are you back here already? On holiday or for good? Well, at least try the Kobe Beef once to see what's the hype about.

Big Boys Oven said...

A lovely place to be and to die for! lol!

PenangTuaPui said...

the salmon sashimi looks great... I miss the sashimi soooo much...

OMG.. Kobe beef... drooling..

nearly got this for our lunch last week for BBQ at PEnang too...

vkeong said...

omg omg omg i want to try Kobe beef!! I keep hearing people say it melts in your mouth.. omg omg omg!

wmw said...

NKOTB : Aiyoh...no lah...the food will definitely turn bad by the time it gets to you. So, don't waste, I eat! LOL!

Joe : Ah yes...I remember you posting on this place a long time ago.

tigerfish : I definitely can't eat at this place that often ;o)

Lyrical L : Wah, biz not so good until they had to freeze it that long (since it was still thawing when they served it to you!)?

j2kfm : This Northpoint is across from Midvalley, cross the bridge and you'll see it. For JFKA membership, one has to send it application and go through several series of "interview" by the board members :p

BBO : No need to die...like that can't eat. Hehehe...

Penangtuapui : What is the going rate for Kobe Beef in Penang?

vkeong : It didn't move my world, hahaha...but I guess we should try it at least once to feel how it's like.

PenangTuaPui said...

RM125 .. but dun know how many gram.

But will give it a try one day for sure.

wmw said...

Penangtuapui : Yes, and then you must blog about that One Moment In Time! Hehehe...
