沙龍廚房 Solar Kitchen (Macau)

Finally on my last post of my Asia trip over the holidays (and I'm just about to go on my next trip in a few days time!) I was super stoked when my dad booked a private kitchen dinner for my family, something that I've never experienced before.
Don't be fooled by the restaurant's location in a dark, narrow alleyway- the interior is bright, modern and comfortable. The owner is a photographer and many of his works are on display along the walls.

Yamamoto Japanese Cuisine

It's no secret that I'm not a big fan of all you can eat Japanese food. But recently, the owner of Watami (which I frequent) opened a new Japanese restaurant in Market Village, so I figured I should give it a try. Yamamoto actually replaced Mongolian Grill, and the large and spacious layout still seemed a little odd to me for a Japanese restaurant. For dinner, the price is $21.99 for Monday to Thursday, and $23.99 for Friday to Sunday (for adults). Seniors have a $2 discount, and children under 10 are charged $11.99 all seven days of the week.
What I liked about Yamamoto is that you can practically order anything by individual pieces, so when you ask for 1 order of shrimp tampura, they'll give you exactly 1 piece! Because of the small portions, we were able to try a lot of dishes between 3 people. 
I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the sushi here. The hand rolls were well-executed and the salmon sashimi was particularly excellent.
