An informative post about Penang Malaysia.

Found right next to De View Hotel, a stone’s throw distance away from Kek Lok Si Temple is Akino Cottage, a new restaurant that offers a Japanese menu. The air-conditioned indoor seating is limited so if you are running out of luck, you might end up at the outdoor seating area (be prepared for a sweat-inducing experience if you are dining under a sultry hot weather). The list of choices is not as comprehensive as some established Japanese restaurants in town. While the dishes are affordably priced, the quality is less-satisfying and has rooms for improvements.

Salmon Sushi (Rm 8)

We thought the Salmon Sushi was highly priced at Rm 4 per piece and to add salt to the wound, the Sushi Rice was overly soft to our liking. We had both Tempura Udon and Tenzaru Soba, both were served with a side of Japanese Tempura. The noodles were alright- pretty standard and not disappointing. The texture of the Udon was lovely, at least not over-cooked to a slouchy soft texture. The Tempura itself was alright but we would prefer them to serve a dip or at least, provide sweet Soy sauce to go with it (the grated Daikon was also missing).
