WHY GO

T.Dining Malaysia Tatler Best Restaurants - - Fusion -

Lucky by day, Wagyu by night; this warm and ca­sual café pan­ders to com­fort food crav­ings dur­ing the day and trans­forms into a car­ni­vore’s meat haven in the evenings.

Wagyu beef is a big part of the ex­pe­ri­ence here, so much so it’s almost com­pul­sory to try at least one man­i­fes­ta­tion of this near-sa­cred meat.

Be­fore get­ting there, how­ever, there are a few treats in store. A truly worth­while dish that shows the ver­sa­til­ity of the kitchen is chef Ong’s spe­cial wasabi prawns. They look rather im­pres­sive and taste bet­ter than that with its crispy bat­ter on the out­side and just the right amount of wasabi lux­u­ri­at­ing on the inside.

As ex­pected, the siz­zling black-pep­per Wagyu is ten­der but has an ex­tra di­men­sion with a gen­er­ous serv­ing of onions and not ex­ces­sive amounts of black pep­per. The sauce is as gooey as could be hoped for.

Dessert is not the forte of this restau­rant as there are only cakes and ice cream on show. How­ever, it has to be said the Forty Licks are un­usu­ally creamy and fea­ture the most imag­i­na­tive se­lec­tion of flavours. Think Guin­ness flavour­ing.
