WHY GO

T.Dining Malaysia Tatler Best Restaurants - - Japanese -

A wide ar­ray of ex­cel­lently-pre­pared Ja­panese cui­sine and an im­pres­sive drinks menu, all within a modernist set­ting, seals its rep­u­ta­tion as one of the best Ja­panese restau­rants in town.

Be­gin with the stir-fried thinly sliced Aus­tralian Wagyu beef with gravy. In uni­son with the mush­room slices, bell pep­per and onions, the per­fect tex­ture of the pre­mium beef just melts in the mouth.

Pre­sen­ta­tion for the 5 kinds of as­sorted sashimi is fan­tas­tic. On an ice bed lies gen­er­ous cuts of the chef’s se­lec­tion of the fresh­est pro­duce of the day. Also, try the rec­om­mended dragon rolls, it is chock­ful with soft-shelled crab smoth­ered in may­on­naise and ebiko. A sig­na­ture dish of the restau­rant, the new Zi­pangu style grilled cod with Saikyo miso is wellsea­soned so that ev­ery bite of the miso-in­fused cod is mar­vel­lous. This dish goes very well with the un­agi fried rice; the Ja­panese short-grained rice is cooked to crunchy per­fec­tion and topped with co­pi­ous amounts of un­agi bits.

Com­plete the feast on a cool note with the must-try matcha ice cream and rice flour dumplings. The con­coc­tion of tapi­oca, red beans, co­conut milk and palm sugar syrup is re­fresh­ingly flavour­ful.
