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.

Top Hat Restaurant @ Jalan Stonor, KL

tiramisu cake

If you have been to the KLCC Convention Centre or the Aquaria, most likely you would have parked at the adjoining outdoor car park. If you did, then you should have noticed Top Hat Restaurant before. It is located along Jalan Stonor, somewhere near the car park’s exit. I had always wondered about the restaurant but never really made a point to make a visit because it looked pricey. But after gathering positive feedbacks from friends who dined there before, we were finally convinced to try.

top-hat-table

Set in a colonial bungalow that used to be a school in the past, the restaurant is filled with natural light from the side windows and oozes classical elegance. The menu that rotates every three months is a delightful blend of Western Dishes and Asian flavours, with the latter focused more on local Malaysian and distinctive Nyonya cuisines. Prices here are expectedly above average but not exorbitantly expensive.

top-hats

Top Hats (Kuih Pai Tee) @ RM10 for half a dozen, a signature dish here that also matches the restaurant’s name. These bite-sized appetizers were prepared fresh and arrived at the table warm. The ‘hat’ was light but crispy and the shredded radish filling was surprisingly more delicious than anticipated considering it is vegetarian. They go very well with the homemade chili coriander sauce too, in fact a must for Pai Tee.

Komura Ala Carte Japanese Buffet RM98++ @ Corus Hotel, Kuala Lumpur

Going for a Japanese Buffet nowadays could be a huge headache – there are simply too many choices and new ones are mushrooming like nobody’s business. For important celebrations and occassions I usually stick to the more reputable and established ones. And Komura Japanese Restaurant at Corus Hotel is one of them, which I chose to celebrate my birthday not long ago. Although expensive at RM98++ (easily the priciest) it was a pleasant meal overall. FYI, Komura’s buffet is of those tick-from-a-paper-menu-ala-carte style.

sashimi

5 types of sashimi available for the buffet: Maguro (Tuna), Shake (Salmon), Mekajiki (Butterfish), Tako (Octopus) and Ika (Cuttlefish) The salmon slices were fresh and delicate, comparable to what I had in Munakata.

Because of that we had many servings of Salmon sashimi. Butterfish was also nice without the frozen taste.

Spring Garden KLCC 50% Dim Sum & Dessert Promotion

Spring Garden Chinese Restaurant in KLCC is one of the restaurant under Tai Thong Group Of Restaurants. One afternoon I saw a flyer advertising their latest promotion, which was 50% discount on selected dim sum and tong sui from 3pm-5pm.
I was immediately attracted to the promotion and went to take a look at the restaurant. It was lunchtime on a Saturday and the restaurant appeared empty. But when I returned two hours later it was full! I guess everyone was waiting for 3pm to have a late lunch or tea break lol.

fried-radish-cake

We requested for the promotional menu and felt disappointed discovering the items on the 50% discount list were.. how do I put it.. ‘cheap’ ones lol. The ala-carte menu was no doubt more extensive and premium looking, same for the prices too. Luckily we were in just for a tea break. But hey it’s dim sum at KLCC so I think we can’t complain much about the price for the location and ambiance you get.
The Stir-Fried Radish Cake with Bean Sprouts @ RM8.50 was not bad at all although it looked a little underfried, because the wok hei was present. I would have enjoyed it more only if the radish cake was cut into smaller cubes before being stir fried. Smaller cubes = more flavor in each bite.

Deep Fried Shrimp Rolls with Mango @ RM9.50. A hint of sweet mango lifted the dish a little.
