Ichiro Sushi Bar @ 1-Utama Isetan Eat Paradise

Ichiro Sushi Bar

It has been more than a year since our last visit but it is great to know that Ichiro is still doing well. Food standard and service are still well maintained which delights me.

Ichiro Sushi Bar remains one of the very few Japanese restaurants that I would not hesitate to return again and again.vkeong

While you are here, do yourself a favor by checking out their daily specials especially Nigiri made from the freshest fish available. The pricing is admittedly slightly higher than the regular sushi joint in town but satisfaction is almost guaranteed. Read about our first experience here.

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?


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.

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.


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.
