RESTAURANT REVIEWS – YONEHACHI AT TAKASHIMAYA (STICKY RICE AT ITS BEST)

By

Hi there,

Dropped by Takayashimaya the other day for lunch and checked out the mini Taiwan fair over there. Decided to try something new, and went for Yonehachi to try out their sticky rice.

Yonehachi is a small restaurant located at the corner and opposite cold storage cashier exit. It is part of the new revamp of the Takashimaya food area.

They have a variety of mixed sticky rice available. Their most popular one is the red bean sticky rice, the rice they used are carefully selected and it has a good texture that even if the rice is cooled down, it will still be tasty and soft & chewy.

They have quite a few combination, where you could order sets like the saba set, or stewed veges, etc. I opted for the Hiroshima oyster set, which comes with a nice portion of deep fried oysters, one choice of the sticky rice ($12.80 with red bean rice & $13.80 with other flavoured rice) I chosed the chestnut and red bean rice with my deep fried oyster set.


The deep fried oyster was fresh & firm and the breadcrumbs coating was crispy and not oily.  The handmade mayo or tartar sauce is excellent, chunks of boiled eggs mixed into mayo, sinful but delightful, so rather dipping the oyster into it, I resorted to scooping up onto the oyster and eat it all together.

Back to the sticky rice, I must say the combination of chestnut and red bean is great with sticky rice. The chestnut was very sweet, so are the red beans, but rather tasting like a sweet dessert menu, they gave us some black sesame with (I suspect) white bonito powder (furikake), mix a little into the rice, and the saltiness from the powder instantly gave it a perk and make it a savory dish.

Miso soup was nothing much special but was not overly salty which I like, as I find that there are quite a number of Japanese restaurants that serve very salty miso soup, so it defeat the purpose of having that last sip at the end of the meal, when you will need to down a whole glass of water right after.  

Service was prompt, ice water is being served without asking, a nice touch. Do drop by to try out this place, or buy some sticky rice sets back home, the lunch crowd is quite good, after I finished my lunch, I already see a long queue waiting to get their hands on these sticky rice.
