So this time we let my younger sister pick where to eat out. She's in a real "Japanese phase" right now... watching a ton of anime on youtube, crunchyroll and veoh (to name a few). I was psyched to go to Akari because I've only heard good things about Japanese cuisine. This was the real stuff, not just sushi and tempura like at the westernized "all-you-can-eat" sushi restaurants.
The Queen's dinner set, came with a ton of tasty treats.
The plain udon in soup... although plain, my sisters found it very tasty. Careful, the pot is hot!
Overall the service was really good. The food was fresh and really quickly served; and they had a wide variety of foods to choose from. My okonomiyaki did take 20mins to cook, but the server told us outright that this would be the case. I admire their honesty. The atmosphere was very quaint, it had the feel of being in a Japanese garden. There was a rock pond, bamboo fronds, and very aesthetically pleasing dining booths. The only tiff I have is with the pricing; but I guess that all fancy Japanese restaurants are pretty pricey. We'll definitely be going back again! I hope it's sometime soon :)
- 3 cups of glutinous rice, soaked overnight and drained

1. Steam the glutinous rice for 10 minutes, or until cooked.
2. Add in coconut milk, sugar and salt. Mix until well combined, steam for another 15 minutes. When done, set aside for assembly.
