Shake Hara Shioyaki (RM38.00nett)

I am pretty pleased with the grilled Salmon belly with salt, It was delicious and creamy. The lightly seasoned skin was grilled to crispy perfection with nice smoky flavor and since it’s a fattier cut from the belly, the salmon flesh underneath literally melts-in-the-mouth.


Saba Teriyaki (RM28.00nett)

The savoury sweet Teriyaki sauce well complemented the rich oily flavours of the mackerel. This one was beautiful with moist flesh and pleasant smoky flavor.


Tori Karaage (RM28.00nett)

Chicken chunks were marinated, battered and fried to crispy juiciness. The Tori Karaage here is well executed, a squeeze of lemon brightened up the flavours and mayonnaise dipping for those who love this creamy condiment. It was also served with shredded cabbage on the side to balance up the heaviness of the fried chicken.


Tori Teriyaki (RM28.00nett)

Gyuniku Teriyaki (RM32.00nett)

Both chicken and beef in Teriyaki sauce were rather mediocre though.

  • Their Japanese food presentation looked very complete and beautiful! The set prices are also very affordable given the fact of this Ota-San was an Imperial Chef. That’s a very distinguished & fabulous credentials any Japanese Chef could have. Bookmarked!

    So coincidence, I met a new intern staff from Nagoya at my Japanese client’s office and he has the same surname as this Chef.

  • The sesame tofu I thought was a dessert in your first photo. This is the first time I’ve seen a chawanmushi where all the ingredients are hidden….haha! 😀 The grilled salmon belly looks the tastiest 🙂

    • Kris, the Chawanmushi… I thought it was a plain steamed egg without any ingredients but when I dug deeper, I found chicken ginkgo nut and mushroom at the bottom 😛
