We also tried a beancurd stuffed with minced prawn (RM10) during one of our visits. A rather unusual dish but somewhat mediocre in my opinion.
Now what’s not mediocre is the Hiyashi Chuka (RM20) – a cold ramen noodle dish served with various vegetables, eggs, meat and served with a vinegar sauce. Meant to be tossed all together before eating. Plus there is a lil heat from the mustard. I totally enjoyed this cold dish and it has now become one of my favourites in Sumida! The portion is rather big for me, so I usually share.
My grandpa is a big fan of Beef Sukiyaki. So we always end up ordering it whenever we eat with him at a Japanese restaurant. Thankfully Sumida makes one of the better Sukiyakis around. The normal portion (RM55) served here is meant for 2 persons but if you’re not a big eater or planning to eat other dishes then the Sukiyaki can easily feed more than two. Dipping the tender slices of beef from the sukiyaki into raw egg
