Yoshinoya is back!

Took over the space vacated by Watami Japanese Casual Restaurant at the 3rd floor of MidValley Megamall, same floor as the cinema. I remember years ago, it used to be located on the Lower Ground floor where Rasa Utara restaurant is now.

Self-service - place your order at the counter, pay, wait and carry your tray with food to your seat.

Shares the dining area with a drinks counter and Hanamaru Udon.

The full menu - apart from beef, they also serve salad, chicken, egg, curry. Please click on the above menu to view the bigger version.

My friend bought a bowl of regular beef rice bowl - MYR9.80 nett. The beef is sliced thinly and I noticed there is quite a lot of fat on the beef slices. These are not raw beef slices but cooked ones. I did not order anything because I wanted to eat somewhere else.

Must not forget to take your own pickled ginger to go with the beef rice from another counter.

There was quite a queue at the Udon counter - will try this one next time.

  1. I like beef but only the lean ones. I only eat cooked Japanese food, still not used to the raw ones yet.

  4. Queue? No, thanks. But that one in your pic is ok - usual at such places. Pro-active ones would open more counters when they see their queues getting a bit long. Hate it when they employ people who work at a snail's pace, dilly dally...talk with colleagues some more... I'd just leave and go elsewhere.

    1. If you are not going to Q, then I am afraid when you go to Japan, you will be only eating not tasty food as all the tasty food restaurants have super long queues in Japan unless you are eating at those super duper expensive restaurants with pre booking.

  7. I never knew this place, even back when it was in its old location. Gosh! Actually I never knew much about restaurants in MidValley anyway..

    Although I don't eat beef in Malaysia, I think that bowl of beef rice looks pretty good.

    1. This beef slices rice bowl is very common in Japan. There are many chain stores that specialise in this.

  8. That pickled ginger looks different from the norm...not the same ones we eat with sushi. I guess those are for noodles as I hardly eat noodles at Japanese restaurants.

    1. I don't think Japanese eat pickled ginger with noodles. These pickled gingers are for beef slices rice.
