Fujisawa Izakaya@Damansara Uptown


Uiks! Japanese food again! This is the Fujisawa Izakaya located outside The Starling. I was here once before with my partner for dinner. I had always wanted to visit for lunch.


Their lunch sets are more affordable than the ones at Rakuzen@The Starling but of course not as awesome. 


For my first lunch visit, I had the Saba Shioyaki Set.


The lunch sets come with lemon water.


I could not resist ordering a serving of sashimi.


The lunch was not bad at all. The presentation is of course lots better than the one at the foodcourt.


I returned for the Tori Karaage Fried Rice Set.


Hmmm.... not that worth it as you get only three tiny pieces of fried chicken.


Then one Friday evening, I suggested to my partner to come here for dinner.


I was not that hungry, so I decided to eat something that I love, grilled salmon head!


hee..hee..hee.. I never appreciated fish head until much later in life. These days I love my kepala ikan.

It's a thrill digging for the flesh and soft tissue and there is a quite a bit of meat on the head. This was served with some grilled salmon bones and you can salvage some smoky tasting meat from the bones. Yummeh!


Confession. I ordered this for lunch on an earlier visit. This was how it looked like.



Perfect for a low carb meal.

OK, back to our dinner.


We got this something-something maki to share. It was good as the salmon and scallops had a smokey flavor.


This was my partner's order. Eh, it looks so familiar. Yup, he ordered this on our first visit. See, he does it all the time hee..hee..


Well, I guess we could return every now and then for our Friday or Saturday dinners. And I have a nice place to visit for affordable Japanese lunch sets. Yay!

  1. Good that you found a place with affordable Japanese lunch sets that meet your requirements. I guess you would alternate going to this place and Rakuzen for Japanese lunch.

  3. I like the Saba fish too, I normally ordered Salted one instead of teriyaki sauce which is a bit too sweet. I normally take it with garlic fried rice.

    1. Yes, I also prefer the salt one. Sometimes they put too much sauce.

  4. Fish head?? Only in curry, I like to eat. Haha.

    Sashimi anytime for me.

  5. Some diners could write Japanese? Impressive!!! Ya...the fried rice looked quite miserable...but I love the fish in your Saba Shioyaki Set. I ordered one here but it was so thin - I would need half a dozen, at least! Your partner makes me think of my partner - orders the same things all the time. Doesn't eat duck, doesn't like lamb, not so into western - your partner like that or not?

  6. Your salmon head doesn't look grilled though, looks more like fried (with an even colour throughout, no grilled marks). I like salmon head too and have a fun time extracting the meat from the bones and chewing on them. Well, they say that a Japanese place must be good if they have Japanese customers (judging from some of the notes left behind in Japanese writing). ^_~

    1. It has a very Japanese feel to it and I think the food is pretty good. I like the grilled stuff on the menu. Will be ordering more from the section of the menu :)

  7. First thing I noticed was the three pieces of fried chicken, so miserably~~~
    What's the sambal look-alike condiment served with both saba & salmon head?
