Kimi-Ya Japanese Restaurant is like a hidden restaurant located under a residence tower at Old Klang Road. Consider as one of a mid-high end range of Japanese Restaurant that offer variety of classic cuisine.
You get a Japanese Zen entrance with some classic design. A classic combination of modern interior with classic touch. If you love to see chef performing cutting on sashimi, then opt for bar area.
Kimi-Ya menu has huge varieties, covering dishes from appetizers, salad to sushi, sashimi, agemono, teishoku, udon, soba, Japanese curry, nimono, yakimono, dessert, among others.
Sashimi Mori Ume (7 Kind) to start off with. The fresh ingredient of chef choice will be serve in this portion.
Something more premium, then Maguro Don would be one of a good choice, love the cut of the fish and just hit the sashimi spot that I crave.
The classic that I usually order for sharing portion is Unagi Cheese Roll and Avocado Ebi Mentai Roll.
Japan Ayu Shioyaki
Another great dish for sharing portion is their Ribeye Shabu Shabu. Love the shoyu sauce that they add in it, and the clarity of the soup. Sweet and fragrant, dipping along with finely cut thin slice ribeye is just nice
This is my favourite of the day. Something very simple yet a perfect classic dish that I have been looking for. Zaru Somen is handmade daily from premium flour from Japan, and serve with quail egg and home special soy sauce.
Way to eat 1:
What I have been thought to eat this is: to pour the quail egg onto the noodle to make it creamy, then lift the noodle, dip it into the soy sauce and, stir it for quick 1-3 second and eat it.
Way to eat 2:
in this restaurant the chef thought me the other way. Add in the quail egg into the soy sauce base without breaking the yolk. This is to preserve the smoothness of somen then take the somen and dip into the soy sauce for 1-3 second. This will give you the best taste where the somen is smooth, make it slightly creamy and soy sauce fragrant coat nicely onto it. A nice balance of noodle, soy sauce and egg.
you can try both ways to see what is the different.
If you got budget, this is the best of the day. A5 Wagyu (120 grams) @ RM 128 A perfertly grilled wagyu that outer layer is just thinly grilled and inside is still medium rare. the fats that it have that near to melt in your mouth texture. Recommended.
After visiting Tokyo, I have been looking out Dashimaki Tamago Yaki. Still looking for one that cooks pretty good.
