The TENJI Experience

[Warning: Too many photos of delicious food!]

Tenji was having a lunch promotion a month back where the lunch buffet will only cost RM49.90++ max instead of RM77++ with RM29.90++ as the starting price and every subsequent 1hr an additional RM10 while the max is till RM49.90++. Still a pretty good deal, compared to Jogoya which cost RM100++ per pax!

Many said Tenji is set to give Jogoya a run for its money. I don't see why not. In terms of food variation, Tenji is said to be as good as Jogoya's. I cannot compare as I have not been to Jogoya. While I am not going to comment much on the food (basically everything is edible), here are pictures to satisfy your cravings and curiousity for those who have been trying to get a table there.

Just like Jogoya's mini coconuts. Love this to bits! Had 4 to myself!

Oysters the size of a palm! Our favourite... We had about 8 of these monsters!

Selection of assorted sushis. Not much selection but you know what they always tell you about Japanese buffets? "Never eat the sushis first! Leave space for other better things!"

Grilled saba, mackeral, yakitori etc. I felt bad for the tiny fish on skewers...

Feta chesse wrapped in smoked salmon. Smoked salmon! Yumm!

Sliced abalone with ikura. Do I need to show you my expression when I see, "Abalone"?

Some grilled prawns or something.

It's not Japanese Buffet if there's no tempura!

Baby octopus. I was too starved to have this. But now I can only drool...

Escargots in kam heong style. Foreground is kerabu squid salad.

Soba noodles in paper thingy. These paper thingy are so hebat!

Pasta with hints of spicyness, assorted bell pepper and squids!

Made to order pan fried salmon fillet. Even made to order items are nice in presentation :)

Miss your dim sum? Fear not, there are dim sums available too.

A plate of greens (Emperor's Vege) and herbal soup to balance the glutton's diet.

Assorted plate of goodies.

Last but not least,

Happiness is free flow of Haagen Dazs ice cream! :DDDDDD

Pastries and fruits for chocolate fondue.

Assorted desserts in glasses. This one is Tiramisu, very strong coffee.

Assorted mochies and variety of teas to neutralize the palate.

In total, we paid about RM80++ for what seem to be like 4 hrs of eating spree. Ambience wise, I think it's very nice as you can choose to be seated outside (but may be abit troublesome having to go in and out to take food). Service is good too, can't say the same when it's crowded though.

Eh, your saliva dropping on keyboard already leh... ;)

[p/s: Due to the ridiculous amount of photos of food and such took, I cannot post all of them here. So please visit my flickr set to view the photos in full. Tq.]

Received a text message few days ago from TENJI. It reads,

"TENJI: March Weekday Lunch Promotion for only RM49.90++ (normal price RM77++) For reservation, pls call 1700-80-1818"

Looks like this promotion thing will last quite awhile. I think their strategy is to have a promotion every now and then so people keep flocking there thinking it's a good deal. But it's all good for us consumers as this allow us to indulge in some jap food and/or buffet without having to burn a hole in our bank accounts!
