Time Out Malaysia Eating and Drinking Guide - - KL & SURROUNDS -

You’ve been shop­ping for hours and need a snack. Head to the sixth floor of Pavil­ion and take a stroll down Tokyo Street where the en­ergy of Ginza and Shibuya has been trans­ported to KL. Of­fer­ing au­then­tic Ja­panese cui­sine, Tokyo Tep­pan and Tokyo Don are the per­fect place to stop by and re­fuel on your next shop­ping trip to Pavil­ion.

Tokyo Tep­pan is a tra­di­tional tep­pa­nyaki restau­rant where the chef’s kitchen and din­ing area blend to­gether into one seam­less space. It’s a sim­ple, util­i­tar­ian space that at­tracts fam­i­lies and of­fice work­ers alike. Sit at the tep­pa­nyaki counter and watch as your dishes are freshly pre­pared be­fore your eyes. The sal­mon tep­pa­nyaki, An­gus beef tep­pa­nyaki, and bone­less chicken tep­pa­nyaki get rave reviews.

Tokyo Don is named for the don­buri, a kind of bowl, and this is a ref­er­ence to their sig­na­ture dish. Tokyo Don serves the popular ‘rice in a bowl’ with over 20 per­mu­ta­tions of the dish on the menu. Popular choices in­clude tem­pura seafood, hokkai don with fresh sal­mon and roe on top of rice, oy­akodon which pairs chicken, egg, and onion with rice, and gyudon or beef and onion over rice. Amongst th­ese don­buri dishes, their home-made tofu stands out for its tan­ta­lis­ingly eggy creami­ness.

Sit­u­ated side-by-side Tokyo Tep­pan and Tokyo Don al­low the cross or­der­ing of food, pro­vid­ing an ex­tra va­ri­ety of pos­si­bil­i­ties for din­ers want­ing to en­joy a sump­tu­ous whole­some Ja­panese meal. Tokyo Street, sixth floor, Pavil­ion Kuala Lumpur, 168 Jalan Bukit Bin­tang, KL (03 2141 4519/2141 4617). Daily, 10am-10pm.
