Thanks for the wonderful invitation, I recently went to Minamotonoya Cafe, a fusion Japanese cafe that’s well-known for their super insta-worthy water mochi.
Re-located from the nearby Glass City at Bandar Sri Petaling, Nexus Wong, the successful owner cum chef invites customers to explore his recipe through the menu which features varieties of tantalizing Japanese delicacies.
Thirst quenching can be so interesting at Minamotonoya Cafe, with Chef Nexus’s latest creation Ice Hill Mojito Sphere (RM15.90).
Step 1, pour the lemon-infused water to the dry ice that’s placed inside the wooden box to create a beautiful fog effect with refreshing lemon scent released to the air.
Step 2, while mesmerizing the fog floating around, pour in soda water and let it mix with the slowly melted frozen juice sphere to become your Mojito drink. There are 3 flavors to choose from, Watermelon, Orange & Mint and Lime & Mint. Order now and experience the fun!
Tori Karaage (RM11.90) has always been a must-have for me while dining for Japanese food. Simple yet flavorful, chef seasoned the meat with shoyu and minced ginger first before deep fried it till golden brown perfection. It was tender, moist and boneless, just the way I like it.
Here’s a comfort meal that is bound to satisfy, Egg With Jelly Furitake Don (RM14.90). Served warm with Japanese rice and fluffy scrambled egg, remember to give it a good stir to dissolve and mix the house specialty Jelly Furitake for extra flavor before savouring the don. Chef Nexus boiled the chicken wings together with shoyu, mirin and sake to make these savory cube-sized Jelly Furitake that’s packed with collagen benefits.
Look at the generous serving portion of pork belly slices in this Chashu Don (RM19.90)! Braised till tender and flavorful with melt-in-your-mouth texture, Chef Nexus definitely nailed it perfectly with his own secret recipe. Simply delicious.
Stealing my attention next deliciously was this Japanese Curry Tori Katsu Rice (RM18.90). Rich and flavorful, I truly enjoyed the fragrant Japanese curry gravy, as well as the crunchy chicken katsu that’s deep fried perfectly with coated panko (Japanese style bread crumbs)
Known as Mizu Shingen Mochi in Japanese, this wobbly jelly alike Water Mochi (RM6.90) was served chill together with imported roasted soybean powder and sweet caramel brown sugar syrup. Chef managed to find some plates with cute animal pattern on it, and turned this simple transparent mochi into a super KAWAII dessert!
Made with tofu, cream cheese and light cream, this Tofu Cheese Cake (RM9.90) is definitely a must try for the tofu lovers. I really enjoyed the smooth creamy texture, and chef tweaked his recipe to enhance the tofu flavor in every bite.
Orange / Blueberry Cheese Cake (RM15.90)
Craving for cheese cake but not fancy the heavy kind? Chef uses Emborg cheese as the main ingredient to achieve the delectable light and smooth indulgence, with choices of orange or blueberry flavors to suit the different taste buds.
