Cheap Japanese Bento @ Ume-tei Bento House, SS15 Subang Jaya

After finishing up my final year presentation at college, my friends and I decided to go for lunch. A friend introduced this place, Ume-tei, located in the busy streets of SS15 Subang Jaya. He described it as economical japanese food and tastes decent too. There aren't many economical japanese food around town(not in Subang Jaya at least), especially bento sets, which usually go for at least RM20 onwards. Without hesitating, we carpooled our way down to ss15.

Ume-tei is located just beside Peppercorn Cafe. Fairly easy to spot if you are a regular at ss15. It is on the same row as Salmon Steak House and the back of the wet market.

Inside was a little quiet, especially during lunch hours. Interior decorations were fairly simple, japanese potraits, wooden chairs and glass table. I must say, the selection of food choices here isn't great, but it is more than enough (most places have menus as thick as a magazine, here is just a sheet of laminated paper). I mean, it makes life easy to decide on what to order.

We ordered Unagi Don(rm18), Chawan Mushi(rm3.50), Chicken Teriyaki Bento(rm11), Shake Bahayaki Bento(rm12), Sliced Beef Steak Bento(rm12), Macaroni Salad(rm2). They have a choice between garlic fried rice, or just plain white rice. I had garlic fried rice to go with my bento. I have to say, it is quite nice. I had sliced beef bento. The beef wasn't overcooked, which resulted it in not being too dry, which was good. Serving portions were not bad as well; quite large for this kind of pricing.

I would definitely recommend this place if you are looking for cheap japanese food. Although if you are looking for sushi, you would have to go somewhere else as they only serve bento and various noodles. They also pack their bentos so you could call them to order and go there to pick it up.
