Japanese Dinner At Mokuren, Ipoh

MOKUREN...One of the best Japanese food I ever tasted in Ipoh, not a chain restaurant but solely owned by a couple, whom I heard is from Japan.  Not verified true or not, what I know is that their dishes are kind of special and different from the ones I have tasted.  Mokuren is just one shop lot, can only holds 25 customers at one time....*that was what I read last night at their door*

Since there are limited tables, customers have to call up to make reservations.  That was what I did, I called up around noon to book a table for dinner yesterday.  Table for 4 at 6.30pm and we arrived 5 minutes late, still acceptable...  A few diners were at the entrance but I guess they did not make reservation, they left. 

Stepping into Mokuren, one couldn't help feeling the cozy and homely ambiance and that was how I felt.  It has been several years since I last dined there, I think I will go more often cos the food there is not only nice and tasty, the prices are reasonable as well.  

For the four of us, we ordered the below dishes.... 

Did you notice anything different?
One piece did not have avocado, right?
Feeling curious, my friend asked the waiter, thinking that they have left out...
But no, he told us to flip it over... (terbalik)
and the avocado "appeared"....
LOL... 
\
There were many rolls to choose from and my friend chose "Four Seasons"
And when it came, my friend was astonished...
Oh oh... raw!
Raw or not, we finished them up.... 
Dipped more into the wasabi and sauce...
Till our eyes teared up... LOL... 
Teriyaki chicken...
Oh, there is one dish which missed my camera...
Beancurd!  
Aiyah, this auntie really!
Claypot Udon.... 
Beef Udon.... 
Both noodles were nice and tasty!
Garlic fried rice....
Saw the next table having Silver Cod fish....
And I wanted to have one too!
Highly recommended....RM46
The price is really justified...
There are 3 fresh cod pieces inside the claypot 
besides other condiments as well....
All to my liking...
I will surely order this again next time!
For the 4 of us, the bill came to around RM150plus...
All of us left Mokuren feeling happy and satisfied!!

  1. The fish does look fresh and inviting. For RM46 it is considered not bad.

  2. I would be full from eating all those sushi rolls. Oh, I would enjoy the silver cod fish.

  3. Those franchise chains are at best good to a certain standard only - I do not find them overwhelming. We had one VERY good Japanese restaurant here but they decided to close it down as they had so many (not Japanese) here, there and everywhere - Sibu, Kuching, Bintulu and they kept those that were making a lot of money!

  9. For raw dish, I only eat raw salmon, not other kinds of fish. The price is very reasonable for so much food plus the cod fish.

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
