Ju.Ne Japanese Restaurant @ Solaris Dutamas, KL

For a restaurant located at the quiet side of Solaris Dutamas, Ju.Ne seems to be doing pretty well with its own set of loyal customers. That’s always a sign of good things to come, right?

Sashimi-Moriawase

A huge display of sake bottles coupled with a bilingual menu (Japanese followed by English) give a character that is unmistakably Japanese. Which is why some of the more exotic items could be found in the assorted sashimi @ RM62.
One of them is the Monkfish liver, which has a creamy and delicate flavor. No wonder it is also called the ‘foie gras of the sea’. The other items were OK, quite fresh but just not as good as the ones I had at Ichiro Sushi Bar. Besides, the ebi still had some shells attached to it.

Salmon-Sashimi

The salmon is the only redeeming point of this dish.

TEN Japanese Fine Dining @ Marc Residence, KL

TEN Japanese Fine Dining was one of the best restaurants at the recent TasteMIGF event and their tasting portions left us satisfied and impressed. Ever since after that, we had been longing to dine at their restaurant at Marc Residence KL.
But since TEN is a fine dining restaurant, pricing is expectedly on the higher side. Because of that we could not afford to just walk in whenever we want; a bit of planning is required. Which is why when LivingSocial launched a deal for TEN for a 3 course fine dining lunch for 2 pax, and much to our delight at an affordable price of RM168, we bought it in a heartbeat.

TEN-Appetizer

One thing you should probably know about TEN is that they only serve set meals for lunch while the la carte menu is available for dinner service only. Luckily the set is customizable so you could choose the number of courses according to your budget and appetite.
And as usual the meal starts off with an appetizer which is a medley of sashimi, mushroom and tofu in small servings. Both of us had a Chawanmushi with surprisingly lots of seafood too. Everything was pleasant but it was the fresh tasting sashimi that stood out.

Chou Shun Kan Japanese BBQ Restaurant @ Laman Rimbunan, Kepong

Chou Shun Kan is a Yakiniku (Japanese BBQ) restaurant located at Laman Rimbunan Kepong. We went in without great expectations but were pleasantly surprised by their quality of food especially the various fresh offerings of meat for grilling purpose. The menu, as expected, is priced more or less in the mid-range.

Japanese-Charcoal-BBQ

Here’s what you will get for the RM88+ set L (2-pax serving including rice, soup, kimchi and vege) which has a good mix of seafood, beef and pork. Most of the meats are pre-marinated with their in-house sauce and thinly sliced into bite sized portions.

Beef-Slices

Jyo Karubi (Special boneless beef short rib) – just look at the beautiful marbling and you’d know your palate is in for a heavenly treat.

RM118 A La Carte Japanese Buffet @ Tatsu, Intercontinental Hotel Kuala Lumpur

This is my first buffet post in almost 2 years and I am going to make it a quick one. Tatsu at Intercontinental Hotel is the place and the Japanese a la carte buffet costs RM118 for an adult. Crazy eh? I think this is the most expensive buffet I have ever had. Price is the only downside here as most of the food that really mattered such as sashimi, cod, unagi and tempura are good while the rest meet expectations.

Salmon-Sashimi

5 types of sashimi (counts as 5 of the 88 dishes) here: butterfish, octopus, salmon, taro and yellowtail.

Salmon-Sushi

7 types of sushi (2pcs for each portion): butterfish, eel, salmon, ika, octopus, tuna and yellowtail.

Teriyaki-Cod

Teriyaki Cod, delicious and a must order here. Best value too if you intend to eat for your money’s worth.
