Random Surprise by HIM

So one of the random Saturdays, he was secretly having a surprise plan. He got me dressed up in the new dress that he bought, and took me out for a dinner date. Where to? I was guessing.

I once told him, you don't have to always surprise and pamper me like this.  
I just love to see you smile, because your happiness matters, YOU MATTER. (I melted & this is what he always says!)

Another Japanese restaurant from Tokyo, SHIN NIHON, which located in Desa Sri Hartamas, Mont Kiara, so you can tell how well he knows me & how much I love Japanese food! (I'll share the address and link to the restaurant at the end of this post.)

Having thoughts of difficulties in finding parking, don't worry, there's a lot of free parking & Valet Parking right in front of Shin Nihon (if you wouldn't mind to spend a little on parking). It's really convenient especially on a rainy day, because they would help you to take care of everything & all you have to do is to get prepared for dinner!

If you are a Beef Lover, Shin Nihon is definitely a must-go restaurant as most of their dishes are made of Beef & the pricing is reasonable.

They are famous for their wagyu beef, but we had decided to go for the Thick Ox Tongue this time. Be frank, this was the best amongst other dishes that we had ordered, & we would definitely come back for this!

For a moment, I was having the thought of whether should we order this? Because we don't know how to cook it perfectly & it might ruin the dish. But this thought had varnished into the thin air as one of the waitresses would assist us in both cutting and cooking the beef.

Lemon, Salt & Sauce were provided for this dish. But my favourite combination was Lemon + Salt, as lemon could bring the refreshing taste and reduce the grease on the beef. While a pinch of salt made this perfect!

Yet, there's something that should be noted. You shouldn't squeeze the lemon juice directly on the Ox tongue (because chances are, you may over do it), and when you dip it into the salt, it would be too salty as the salt would just stick on the whole piece of meat (you would waste it).

So there is a little tip for you. 
1. Squeeze the lemon juice on the sauceplate.
2. Put a pinch of salt into the lemon juice.
3. Mix it.
4. Dip your beef into the mixture & Enjoy it.

Also, if you are liking Raw Beef, you should definitely give this a try - Premium Beef Tartare. At your first glance, yes, you may think, Ewww this looks pretty gross. Trust me, this thought did come across my mind and for a second, I wasn't willing to try it. But, why not?

Raw Beef being mixed with egg yolk & coupled with some marinated vegetables, it turned out to be surprisingly good!
p/s : There is another similar dish which comes with Avocado, but too bad, I'm not a fan of it so we didn't order that. It'd be nice for avocado lovers, and of course, more nutrients in it.


The Beef Tongue Bowl next to it was pretty scrumptious as well, it came with a chopped of chilly, adding a little spiciness into this dish, along with their special sauce & Japanese rice. As it is pretty filling, it is quite a good choice for lunch and for those who don't like raw food. 

Guess we had over ordered, because there was another Roasted Beef Rice Bowl being served. As it looked a little raw, I hesitated, again. But i was impressed right after I gave it a try. 

To be honest, by comparing both of it, I would suggest you to go for the Roasted Beef Rice Bowl instead of the other one.

Previously I have mentioned that we ordered Ox tongue instead of wagyu beef, because we had already ordered another Wagyu Beef Sushi, which I would recommend to you guys as well. In fact, it was the first dish that caught my eyes & he could read me when he saw me eyeing on this.

Premium Roasted Wagyu Beef Sushi being topped off with a pinch of wasabi and sesame, the spice immediately brings out the freshness & sweetness of the beef, forming a perfect combination with the heavenly ingredients. Definitely a must try, for Steak Lovers!

Looking for a place for dinner date? Why not give Shin Nihon a try, definitely satisfying with reasonable pricing! However, you are advised to make an early reservation with them because it's quite packed, & I saw some of them had to leave when they had no luck on getting a table.
