Before I came back Melaka (yes, I am in Melaka already) hubby told me about a famous Japanese restaurant that she see a few times on internet. I thought why not give it a try?

Sakura House
As in the name "house", the restaurant is actually in a housing area where the house was renovated

Sakura House
and transformed to a restaurant, be it living room, bedroom or kitchen. Only the front door are kitchen, the other part of the house can equip customers.

Although the house is small, but there is a room where the long table is located can equip 12 person at a time.

Hire Katsu Jyu 猪扒盖饭
My main dish: Hire Katsu Jyu (猪扒盖饭)which is Fillet And Egg On Top Rice
The pork chop is quite dry and no taste (not marinated), the pickles are ok ok, although too much colouring but I can understand since Japanese Bento's pickles are come in such way. However, the only thing I don't quite get it is the egg and rice. It's not Japanese style but Chinese style fry egg on top on steam rice. In another words, Chinese style pataya =.=

Overall: 8/10 (Not 100% Japanese food, so it's cheaper than usual Japanese food you found. It was previously cheaper but according to the owner, since the earth-quake in Japan few months back has affect the price)

Taste bud indulgence: 7.5/10 (It's just so-so, not very impressive, not typically Japanese food though~)

Purse saver: 9/10 (Labeled as Japanese Restaurant with a 1/2 of the price you get from some franchised Japanese Restaurant)

Atmosphere: 8.5/10 (It's creative to have a house renovate to become a restaurant. If the noise insulation isn't done well, the neighbours definitely wouldn't appreciates it.)
