Fu-Rin Japanese Restaurant @ Holiday Inn Glenmarie

Certain days life can be such a bored without any agenda in the 'to-do' list. Certain days life can be wonderful with lot's of surprises. Certain days can be such a pain when everything, anything just didn't work. I was having one of the above 'certain' days and thank God that I was having a wonderful one.

Dinner was not in the agenda at all for the day. We couldn't think of what to have and decided to skip it. BUT out of the blue my lovely mother-in-law called and decided to give the family a treat. A treat that will bring all of us to Holiday Inn at Glenmarie Shah Alam. A treat that will bring to us some really good Japanese cuisine. A treat and a date with 'Fu-Rin Japanese Restaurant'.

I am not a fanatic for Japanese foodie but with FOC food on the table why not. LOL. We were shocked to find the restaurant to be packed with dinner crowd considering it was a weekday. From my observation half the crowd are hotel guests while the remaining half were there specifically for it's food.

California Rolls
All of us were going for their 'set dinner' as my mother-in-law have some special coupons for them. First to come was the famous 'California Rolls'.  It is a-must to order this lovely maki-sushi roll as it was really fresh and delicious. It was much more delicious when the rolls were dipped into some Teriyaki sauce.

Teriyaki Chicken Set
The 'Teriyaki Chicken Dinner Set' was brought to us and we were surprised with the lovely aroma that greeted us. This same aroma made us all stood still and drool at the same time. Without wasting time I decided to give it a go. OOhhh! Blimey... it tasted so good as good as it's aroma. Chicken was perfectly cooked and the teriyaki sauce that came with the chicken was superb. Perfect !!! Goes very well with the rice.

Came with the set is a bowl of 'Chawamushi' or in plain English it's called 'Japanese Steamed Egg Custard'. It was not 'hot' but 'warm' when it was brought to us. Would prefer it to be 'hot' as it will surely taste better. But somehow all of us enjoyed this lovely bowl and it was pretty delicious too.

Yam Ice-Cream
Last but not least came my favourite ie 'Yam ice-cream'. It was truly refreshing after a heavy delicious meal and I wouldn't have asked for more than this. Just fantastic and was craving for more as the one single scoop was just not enough.

Did I mentioned that besides Set Lunches and Set Dinners this restaurant does know how to strut their stuff by having 'buffet' style for both lunch and dinner and this is only available on weekends. A true winner.

Conclusion : Not too bad !!! Food quality at it's best. Probably it's because it is located in a hotel where quality control is a must. Pretty good and delicious. Worth venturing further but rather costly. But service was good and the environment is simple and comfortable and classy in it's own ways. A 3/5.
