WHY GO

T.Dining Malaysia Tatler Best Restaurants - - Japanese -

De­spite be­ing a new kid on the block, this restau­rant has greeted the buzz sur­round­ing it with re­sound­ing class, el­e­gance and fine Ja­panese food.

Omakase tem­pura is the order of the day here, but to truly ex­pe­ri­ence the in­tri­ca­cies of Ja­panese fine din­ing cui­sine, the Wagyu or tra­di­tional kaiseki de­gus­ta­tion menus are ex­cel­lent sam­plers as the multi-course menu uses choice sea­sonal in­gre­di­ents, in­volves ex­ten­sive prepa­ra­tion and show­cases the skills of the chef.

The Wagyu sashimi and sea urchin with bonito and soy sauce flakes starts off the Wagyu kaiseki. Fresh cus­tard-like sea urchin is eaten with wafer-thin raw Wagyu beef wrapped around it, and strikes a good bal­ance be­tween briny and raw meat flavours. Next, is a hot pot meal fea­tur­ing finely cut Wagyu beef and au­tumn veg­eta­bles that will un­doubt­edly please both soup- and meat-lovers.

Grilled to medium rare per­fec­tion is the highlight of the menu – the char­grilled Wagyu. The thickly cut nuggets are suc­cu­lent and ten­der with ex­cel­lent mar­bling. What fol­lows is the sesame flavoured Wagyu on rice with green tea sauce, a light and sweet com­ple­ment to the grilled dishes be­fore.
