Food Prince is back again after a lapse of eating too many good food that he has forgotten to share some of his dining experiences. FoodMeFoodYou is proud to bring you the sushi platter we, Food Prince and Princess got to try at Izakaya Ichiban. Our taste buds got us going so let’s talk about the food first and some food photos.
The special Izakaya Ichiban Sushi Platter was brought upon our very eyes. The food was okay. The presentation was okay. The amount of sushi and sashimi was more than enough for 2 person but with a big appetite that Food Prince has, he ate about 70% of the whole dish.
There were clams, unagi, salmon, ebi, scallops, green beans and potato salad. Not forgetting the jellyfish as part of the dish too. Here is a brief description of the restaurant taken from their restaurant.

Izakaya Ichiban was established by Mr Koichi Ono who has great passion for food and delicacies in many exotic and traditional Japanese dishes. He opened Izakaya Ichiban with one purpose in mind – to provide reasonable priced food at our Izakaya restaurant.

Presentation was good. The only problem is that I have to complain was the freshness of the sushi. Well, considering it was a promotional offer we got from online coupons, it was prepared earlier. The salmon was not as fresh as it should be. Though with the amount of sushi they offer, it was worth the price. The price we paid was only RM40 instead of the total value of RM92.80. Although this definitely is better food compared to another restaurant which have non-fresh sushi in their platter.
Aside from the food, the environment around this place was superb as it really brought us into relaxation state. The music that was playing was Japanese and the staffs do greet us in Japanese.
