A friend recommended me this new Japanese restaurant last week so I decided to go for a try. Me and two of my friends popped in at around 6 pm on Tuesday. The place is not big but the atmosphere is quite cozy and friendly.
For most of the good Japanese restaurants are tend to specialize in one particular type of food such as ramen or yakitori. But Oishiq seems to be an exception which is able to provide different types of Japanese food on the menu such as Yakitori, different donburi, sushi, ramen and tempura. Also, there is a special food list for everyday on the board. Therefore it was quite hard for us to select what to try as most of the dishes seem very nice!! Finally we decided to pick a Yakitori rice set and 2 donburis and a uramaki to share.
Yakitori rice set
We ordered 3 portions of skewers (Chicken thigh, Lamb and asparagus, Quail eggs) and they came with complementary rice. Each portion had 2 skewers in total 6 skewers so it was quite a lot for us. I like the chicken thigh so much as it is juicy in every bite and just grilled alright! Lamb was chewy and was so matched with fresh asparagus. The little springy quail eggs were rich and tasty, They were all delicious by grilling with sweet and special yakitori sauce.
Pork Katsu Don
It was the fried pork with egg and onion mixed with Tonkatsu sauce on the top of the rice. It was quite nice as the pork are soft inside but crispy outside. It was quite surprising as the pork katsu I tried before were quite dry but this one was extremely great.
It was not on the menu but the special list of that day. If you enjoy all sorts of sashimi, you should definitely try this one! A set of fresh salmon, tuna, seabass and mackerel sashimi on the top of sushi rice. All the fish are so fresh and was " melt into mouth"!!
Soft shell crab
It was a sushi roll wrapped with crispy soft shell crab, avocado, cucumber and mayo sauce inside. It was plentiful and delicious. Thumbs up for this special roll.
Overall, all dishes were well prepared and served quickly. The staffs were nice and friendly too. They asked whether we want to try their green tea and black sesame ice cream but we were so full. We all felt nice treated and yummy warm in our tummy :P The price was decent too. By the time we left at about 7:30, it was nearly full! It is definitely worth a try and we will come again!
