Burger & Sushi @ G Village, Desa Pandan

After our first, second and third visits, we were back for our fourth, fifth and sixth visits to Burger & Sushi @ G Village, Desa Pandan.  What can I say...my son loves this place.....and we love it for its convenience and close proximity to where we live with abundant (and cheap) covered parking to boot.

Because we're regulars, we get *star* treatment here...ok-lah, maybe that was exaggerating it a bit....but we do feel very welcomed and at home here just like when "Friends" walk into Central Perk....hehe! ;D

After sampling burgers, beef steaks and teppanyaki, we wanted to give their sushi a try on our fourth visit.  We ordered the Salmon Lover @ RM45 which comprised of salmon sashimi (5 pcs), salmon nigiri (4 pcs) and salmon maki (6 pcs).

No complaints as the salmon and salmon belly sashimi was of good quality, fresh and nice.

The salmon nigiri was good too.  Perhaps just a tad too much salmon in one sitting...haha....strictly for salmon lovers only! ^.^

I went for the Tuna Tataki @ RM35 featuring partially seared tuna served with a ponzu dipping sauce.

When it arrived, I was taken aback as to how thick and big the slices were...and there were six large pieces!  I was happy...it was fresh and delicious.

Look at the nice sear on the outside...the lightly seared tuna was great eaten dipped in the citrusy and savoury ponzu sauce.

Ever since we first tasted an excellent ikura (salmon roe) at Yamaguchi Fish Market, we were bowled over by its taste...the wonderful burst of juices and saltiness from the ikura were simply sensational on the taste bud.

This Ikura Gunkan @ RM17.80 (for 2 pcs) was pleasant enough...just didn't quite match the explosion of flavours as the one we had at Yamaguchi Fish Market.

Then there was the silky-smooth Chawanmushi @ RM9.80.  I like the chawanmushi here as it's always served piping hot like it had just been freshly steamed.

The Yasai Tempura @ RM22, though not the best-looking in terms of presentation, was pretty alright in taste with a light and crunchy batter.  The price seems a bit on the expensive side for just a vegetable tempura (but I think there were at least 10 pcs of vegetable).

On our next visit, we went back to having teppanyaki as it's one of the best things here in my opinion plus teppanyaki has always been a family favourite.  This time we had the Seafood Platter @ RM99.80 for sharing.

The platter consists of grilled assorted seafood of deep sea tiger prawns, squid, scallops and Norwegian salmon complete with a Japanese ginger dipping sauce.  Looking at the portion size though, I thought the Seafood Combo Set we had on our previous visit (which would have cost just RM12 more for two sets) seemed like a far better value.

That aside, the ginger sauce will rally even non-fans of ginger to become ardent fans (like my son)! ^_~  I guess it's because it didn't have that pungent aroma and sharp taste like Chinese ginger.

Having tried three types of sushi roll, we ordered our fourth roll, the Bermuda Roll @ RM36.80 with a filling of deep fried prawns topped with Mekajiki fish (aka broadbill swordfish or big-eye marlin) and mentai.

Love the luscious mentai as usual but probably the least favourite of the five sushi rolls we have tried thus far.

The fifth roll we tried was the Aburi Salmon Roll @ RM26 consisting of a filling of seared salmon and tempura flakes topped with furikake and tobiko.

We loved the element of crunch from the tempura flakes and the saltiness of the furikake with a hint of spice from the sauce underneath.  We soon realised that this was what was sprinkled on the fried kuruma ebi head and poke bowl we had at Eatomo earlier on which we fell in love with.  I later found out that furikake is actually a dry Japanese seasoning containing dried and ground fish, sesame seeds, chopped seaweed...and guess what?  MSG!!  No wonder we love the flavour so much....haha! ;D

And because we loved the furikake (and the roll) so much, we ordered the Aburi Salmon Roll @ RM26 again on our sixth visit.  This and the Caterpillar Roll are probably the front runners for best sushi rolls here.

But this time we didn't want any of our sushi rolls to be topped with tobiko, we requested for them all to be rolled in furikake...woot woot! ^o^  I was even more impressed with the presentation this time round.

Again, you can't go wrong with any of their teppanyaki.  We went with the Salmon & Chicken Teppanyaki Set @ RM45 that came with stir-fried vegetables of cabbage, bean sprouts, carrot and green pepper.

A teppanyaki that we have not tried was the Cod Fish Teppanyaki @ RM60 served with the same stir-fried vegetables.

I think the portion size of the cod fish given was fair.  I love, love, love cod fish to death....and this one was delicate, flaky and sweet tasting.  Gorgeous!

Both sets came with chawanmushi, miso soup, rice and fruits.  Add RM5 to upgrade to Garlic Fried Rice.

It's definitely worth your while to upgrade...so much so we ordered a second Garlic Fried Rice.

We had similar drinks most of the time except for this Root Beer Float @ RM11.80 and Iced Green Tea @ RM5.

This was Burger & Sushi getting all decked up for Chinese New Year ^_*

My Personal Opinion

If you're from around the area looking for a good Japanese meal at prices that are reasonable and affordable, this is it!  This place does sushi rolls and teppanyaki well.

Like a blogger friend whose Connie of Hokano takes good care of her, my Netallie takes good care of me too. And it's always nice to get that little bit of special treatment (and discount) *wink wink*

After one burger, two steaks, six sushi rolls, six teppanyaki (and a whole lot more) later, we're not done yet. There could be seventh, eighth and ninth visits.....but who's counting! ^_~

  1. Your photos are all very delicious to my eyes! The price is indeed very reasonable and I am also fussy when it comes to hot piping Chawanmushi that must still have its watery 'goyang' surface. Kudos!
    I realised that in Japan, most restaurants offered free green tea or plain water without being asked.They just put the glasses on your table and fill your glasses. Sometimes the decanter or jug is next to you FOC.

    This Burger & Sushi's easy parking is also the bonus that would attract me. Most weekends I have avoided MV as their parking could drive me nuts. LOL

    1. There was once when we searched for almost an hour for parking in MV (I wasn't the one driving, otherwise I would have left)! >_<

      The restaurants here should follow their Japanese counterparts and offer free green tea and water too :)

  2. Those tuna really looks like a great deal at RM 35

  3. Ah, your favorite place, eh? hee..hee... Foodwise, from what I can see here, I can see myself returning many times too. Wah, I really like the look of that Tuna Tataki - from the generous slices to the pink color. I think only you get served such generous slices lah hah..hah...special treatment for a loyal customer. Any reason why the Bermuda Roll is your least favorite?

    I must check with my brother if he is keen to venture out to Desa Pandan because I want to visit Burger & Sushi. Oh...I see I have been mentioned hee..hee...

    1. The visit when I had the Tuna Tataki, the lady boss wasn't around. So, I'm sure all her customers (loyal, regular or otherwise) will get such generous slices...haha....she treats all her customers just the same! :D Though my least favourite, the Bermuda roll is still able to stand tall among the other rolls...just that the other rolls have some of my more fav ingredients like unagi, avocado and furikake....hehe! ^_*

  4. it's nice to have a place in your neighbourhood where you can go and feel comfortable and right at home, and know you'll be having a good meal. i don't quite have a place like that for myself in sri petaling ;) the bermuda roll looks interesting - that's not a fish that's typically used for rolls ... hmmm, i'm an ardent ginger fan, so i might have an extra helping of that ginger sauce. come to think of it, i'd like to try garlic fried rice paired with that ginger sauce :D

    1. I actually don't have one in my housing area itself but Desa Pandan is still considered pretty near vicinity. If you're such a fan of ginger, you'd be pleased to know that they give a very generous amount of the sauce, so you'll definitely have extras to pour on your garlic fried rice should you choose to do so! ^_~

  5. Parking and ease of access - two factors that every restaurant should think about when opening.

    1. For me, ease of parking is a very important criteria :)

  6. I will pretty happy with the generous portion of the Salmon platter however why the chawanmushi so expensive? >_<

    1. Perhaps the price reflects the portion size which is bigger than those that come with the sets...and it tastes like it's been freshly steamed, so I'm ok with it =)
