Simple Lunch at Ninja Jones, Northpoint Mid Valley
Unagi Tofu Salad
My sister, my niece and I were at Mid Valley recently having a ladies' only shopping session. When lunch time rolls around, most F&B outlets looked so packed. Suddenly, I remembered a Japanese restaurant that enjoyed good reviews from fellow bloggers with a catchy name - Ninja Jones. I knew it is located at Northpoint but I didn't know where exactly was Northpoint (initially thought it was those commercial blocks located opposite Starbucks). After circling almost a third of the perimeter surrounding Mid Valley (and after much grumblings from my sis and niece), we finally found it!
None of us was really hungry so we opted for a simple lunch despite the many delicious-looking choices on their menu. Craving for a refreshing salad after an "unintentional walk under the hot sun", I chose the Unagi Salad (pictured above)which proved to be an excellent choice for me! Pieces of succulent unagi (eel) and tofu on top of mountains of fresh vege in light dressing, topped with a light drizzle of wasabi mayo and crispy croutons.
My sis and niece chose the set lunch options,
Katsu Don (not pork, but chicken and tasted average only), and
another chicken dish that is fried with egg. (This was better that the former).
When I first saw Pumpkin Pudding listed under Desserts on their menu, I knew I must try it. Tasted like chilled pumpkin-flavoured egg custard with a dash of milk. Not too bad, nice for a hot weather.
"Ninja" in action! No sight of flying ninja though.....hehe...
Went into the Men's by mistake (honestly!). Not fair, the Men's washroom was much nicer and interesting than the Ladies....
