Four Seasons Korean Restaurant at Solaris Mont Kiara is unlike many other Korean restaurants in the same area. Instead of a typical Korean BBQ menu that one would expect to see, the restaurant offers unique meals using live fish kept in cold tanks. The fish is served raw or cooked, along with choices of premium items like live octopus, abalone and lobster. Continue reading
Kuriya (厨) Japanese restaurant in Bangsar Shopping Centre (BSC) is a little more posh than the usual Japanese restaurants. While it serves your typical ramen, soba and rice dishes, it combines some of the most lavish ingredients to create a luxurious dining experience. Wagyu BBQ roll + sea urchin, and double toro roll are fine examples.
We Gave Ichiban Boshi a try while we were hanging out in Publika Mall. Continue reading
Rakuzen (樂膳) has a few oulets in KL. I’ve been to the one in Empire Shopping Gallery, in Publika Mall, and the one in this post, in Hartamas Mall. The food at all the outlets are extremely consistent and I am always confident that which ever outlet I step into, I will be able to repeat the same dining experience. Continue reading
We were super excited to take our lunch at Kohan Japanese Restaurant, Lake Tekapo, after seeing the kind of environment the alpine salmon are reared at Mount Cook Alpine Salmon Farm. Kohan, or 湖畔, literally means “by the lake” and indeed the the restaurant has ceiling-to-floor windows for superb view of Lake Tekapo.
Gary and I both took the Kohan Bento Box (NZD23.50).
The bento box Continue reading
My friend Alice recommended this authentic Taiwanese restaurant which has no English name, so I am just going to translate it as “Sky Turns Red Restaurant” ( 紅翻天). Alice insisted that the dishes are small, so she went on an order frenzy and ordered 14 dishes for the 4 of us!!! Being gluttons like my friends and I, we managed to eat almost everything without too much left over. We were totally stuffed. But honestly, for 4 people, I think 8 dishes should be more than enough.
When we were at the restaurant, it was about 90% filled with people. Yet the dishes came out as if the chef was only cooking for 2 tables of people. Most of the dishes were between NTD 100 to NTD 150. The steam boat dishes which we did not order were NTD 400. With the speedy service and unbeatable price, I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants to get an authentic taste of Taiwanese cuisine. (Take note that restaurant does not accept credit card, so bring enough cash along).
Here is what we ate:
Grilled Fish. The fish was grilled until crisp on the outside yet juicy on the inside. The fish had minimal seasoning of salt, with white pepper and lime on the side, but that was all the fish really needed. A little more seasoning than that would hide the true freshness of the fish.
