October Japanese Cuisine, Johor Bahru
It’s the festive season and almost everyone I know is busy holidaying somewhere.
We just got back from a great getaway too. We went to this place where cherry blossoms is in full bloom.
It’s so beautiful that we can’t resist but to take a family picture under the alluring sakura arch.
Bright cherry blossoms and the rustle of bamboo give such a serene ambiance to this location.
I believe I could have tricked a handful of you if I say we were in Japan but the truth is, we were much closer to home. We did not even leave the country. All we did was to take a road trip to Johor to this zen place called “October Japanese Cuisine”.
October Japanese Cuisine is a modern Japanese theme house that serves contemporary Japanese cuisine.
It has plenty of parking space at the back of the restaurant.

They have already launched their 2018 Chinese New Year specialties; 3 types of specially crafted dishes for the upcoming festive season.
Prosperity Yee Sang – Assorted Sashimi with Wasabi sauce
This yee sang consists of 3 varieties of deep water fish sashimi – Norwegian Salmon, Maguro (Tuna) and Hamachi (Yellow Tail) as its highlight among other condiments. Fried Gyoza skin and Roasted Almond flakes add an interesting crunch to the texture of this yee sang.
Two choices of sauces are available for this yee sang – Wasabi Sauce and the classic Sour Plum Sauce.
We decided to get adventurous and tried the Wasabi sauce for our yee sang and it was worth every drop of this refreshing herbal sauce.
The marinated trio – Marinated Scallop (Chuka Hotate), Marinated Jellyfish (Chuka Kurage) and Marinated Seaweed (Wakame) compliments this raw fish salad perfectly.
Mix the ingredients together and toss them high while calling out loud, “Loh Hey” which literally means “move upwards”; symbolic of rising our fortunes in the year to come.
Prosperity Yee Sang with Assorted Sashimi in Wasabi Sauce is priced at RM108nett (large) and RM68nett (regular).
