Having a zest for good food, I enjoy trying out new eateries and food, especially across the causeway into Johor Bahru, Malaysia. When my JB blogger friend invited me for a food tasting session at Yuzu Japanese restaurant on a random weekend, I gladly accepted! Yuzu Japanese Restaurant is located at Mount Austin, JB, and the eatery place is fairly small with a homely and unpretentious setting.
Upon reaching the premises, we were told to help ourselves with the complimentary cold/hot green tea and free flow of kimchi at their located area within the eatery place. Currently, Yuzu Japanese Restaurant is running a promotion on their 4 deluxe Soft Shell Crabs Ala Carta and Set Meals!
2pcs of Soft Shell Crab (RM19.90)
1pc of Soft Shell Crab with Shoyu Ramen (RM18.90)
2pcs of Soft Shell Crab Meal Set with Chawanmushi (RM28.90)
2pcs of Soft Shell Crab Don with Chawanmushi (RM24.90)
Apart from the soft shell crab menu, we were allowed to also order any other food items on the menu for our tasting session. I started off with one of their signature dishes, the Cha Soba! (cold noodles). The price was much affordable as compared to other restaurants located within JB which I had tried before. The serving portion was pretty decent too! The texture of the noodles were perfect, and the dipping sauce was tastier and enhanced with the accompanying Sesame seeds.
If you are a lover of cold noodles, you should not miss out on the soba at Yuzu Japanese restaurant.
We also ordered the standard dishes that one can find easily in a Japanese restaurant. We shared them among the other bloggers during tasting session.

Yuzu Japanese Restaurant may not be an exquisite Japanese Fine dining eatery, but they do well to attract customers due to their very affordable prices and quality of food. It is a good choice for weekday lunches, and is also a good place for gatherings and outings for friends and families alike during the weekend! Everybody can eat well at this wallet-friendly eatery!
Lastly, thanks for having us at the tasting session, and I enjoyed the food very much. I made many JB blogger friends through this tasting event too.
