FUKU DEN

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

Amongst the hus­tle and bus­tle of the city, it’s al­ways a re­lief to drive into the rel­a­tively quiet Jalan De­lima and then pro­ceed to spend leisurely hours en­joy­ing a meal at Fuku Den. With the same highly ef­fi­cient team be­hind the highly-lauded Fukuya (in­ci­den­tally lo­cated op­po­site Fuku Den), Fuku Den is one of the first Ja­panese restau­rants in KL to spe­cialise in rob­o­tayaki, which is food grilled over char­coal. Fresh in­gre­di­ents are def­i­nitely key to the mem­o­rable dishes at Fuku Den. With ev­ery­thing flown in from Ja­pan, they take no short cuts. Prices are slightly higher than the norm, de­pend­ing on your or­ders but ul­ti­mately, when you’re here for the ex­pe­ri­ence, Fuku Den makes sure that it’s well worth the ex­pense. At the cen­tre of the space, two wooden boats showcase an im­pres­sive spread of in­gre­di­ents. Guests can choose from the se­lec­tion and watch ap­pre­cia­tively as pro­fes­sional chefs sear their din­ner over the siz­zling grill. It may seem too sim­ple as they only sprin­kle some sea salt as sea­son­ing be­fore grilling it, but this mea­sured touch al­lows the nat­u­ral flavours of the fresh­est pro­duce shine through. Take the first bite of the glo­ri­ously fresh seafood and juicy meats (por­tions are pretty big) and you’ll see our point.

Veg­e­tar­i­ans need not worry as the vegetables (also Ja­pan-grown, which some­how makes the dif­fer­ence) are some of the best grilled vegetables we’ve ever tasted. It might even con­vert the most stub­born car­ni­vore. Tem­pura and tep­pa­nyaki are al­ter­na­tive op­tions at Fuku Den, but th­ese are served in pri­vate rooms. For some­thing dif­fer­ent, Fuku Den makes the cut. 10 Jalan De­lima, Off Jalan Imbi, KL (03 2141 6939).
