Shiki Omakase that is lead by 2 Japanese chef that offers you a modern Japanese Dining Omakase Experience. It is a unique experience that what you are having on the day will be different from another diners that going into for the same menu. Shiki Omakase just sits right above Healy Mac in Publika or even just a few doors away from Red Bean Bag.

A new Omakase restaurant in Publika that just started this year and it is gaining their own popularity especially their lunch crowd. If you do plan to go here for lunch, do make bookings.DSCF7759DSCF7760 (2)mount fujishiki omakase (3)shiki omakase publika

Lets start off the food journey of Omakase as the menu for the day (click here). Just note that what is written in here, every dinners might have slight 20% changes or even 50% changes of ingredients from what I posted or even same chef attending to you, the ingredient used for you and other diners also could be dfiferent. That is why the term Omakase. (You do not know!)

Basically it is the fresh ingredient of the day that what Chef plan to have in his mind and also along the journey of dining, chef might switch their menu they have in mind to suits the persons taste bud as they discover further if they are part of your conversation.

Before kick start the meal, chef show me on the available cuts of tuna and maguro. Just look at that. different types of premium cuts.

Was fun to talk to the chef as the only seating for the night. He focus conversation with my side by showing all the fresh ingredients that got flown in, in the morning it self. Just look at the colour end texture of Uni. Drool
best omakase in kl

very interesting that how chef play his unique modern infusion style. Some with bird nest, truffle cream, smoked wasabi. The best is, all his flavour combination pairs really well with their house Sake. Fruity, floral and refreshing. It just opens up most of the taste of the flavour profile then end with hint of floral and sweet end. Perfect!

This is the sushi uni with special sushi rice from a province. The sushi rice is actually fatter and shorter than the usual yet chef cook it slightly cooked that give you a nice bite of body texture.

this is super good. The mini lobster is super fresh and it is actually one of their in house best seller. Lobster Kanitama Motoyaki. The meat is so juicy and meaty. Pair with its side dish that just goes super well.-Recommended shiki omakase (5)omakase in pj

Palate washer is very unique as it is actually savory that serve in chill temperature. Yet a nice mixture of sour that cleanse the palate. 

japanese food in publikaSimple desser to finish off with Japanese Melon and Yuzu Sorbet. One of the best that I come across as chef mention this is their special recipe all the way source from Japan.

I was told that this place sells legendary Roti Bak Kwa. Of course Roti Bak Kwa in Penang and KL is totally different version. Since I am craving for one, decided to pay a visit to Uncle 6 Toast Bar In Pudu, that just operated not long. In the area, Uncle Chai is known as the motocycle Bak Kwa Man. He had been riding the same kapchai for 40 years moving around to sell his legendary charcoal roti Bak Kwa.

I think this is more like Uncle Chai Retirement shop with some relatives or cousins helping to run the shop and continue his legacy. Uncle Chai is also already 80 years old. standing strong and steady.

Uncle chai kapchai

of course Roti Bak Kwa can be consider as one of a street food. Alright, the diff between Penang and KL as I think this is the first time I eat Roti Bak Kwa in KL and this is the first one.

the difference is that Penang comes with steam bun and own special sauce bath onto the center bed of bread then add in with just charcoal bbq onto it.

KL is what yo usee below. Roti toast and with chili sauce. Ill show you guys Penang version when I go back Penang end of the month.

roti bak kwa in kl

Never the less, the uncle gives generous pork floos and bak kwa 2 pcs and I enjoy every mouth bite of it. Is it super good, I think it is decent enough to fix my cravings. I just enjoy the classic without egg.

  1. Classic @ RM 5.50
  2. Bak Kwa with Egg @ RM 6.50

egg roti bak kwa

uncle chai roti bak kwa

cham peng

The best combination is Roti Bak Kwa and Cham Peng @ RM 5. Fuh, enough liau. Just like this! Pretty spot on kauness of coffee and tea blend together.

dry clay pot pan mee

Then was introduce by the girl take order that Signature Claypot Dry Chili Pan Mee @ RM 11 is their signature. Smells good, drooling but I think its quite salty for me. I think price is a bit steep for this.

chee cheong fun

KL chee cheong fun I am never used to it. However still give it another try. Nahh, not my cup of tea.

Before we coming to end of the year and feeling festive yet not too sure where to go for a nice place to chill. Well, lets head to the new atas food court known as Tiffin At The Yard at Sentul, KL. Love the location as the surroundings is quite oversea with rustic and classic red brick buildings around and Sentul depo is just around the corner. Many instagramble corner can be taken in this premises.

The best part is Tiffin At The Yard is going to be permanent.

There are variety of vendors in the area and I find that Olivia Deli is a must hunt stall. I find that their Squid Ink Paella is da bomb @ RM 35! one of the best paella I come across. Did spoke to them as currently they do not have a restaurant yet. This is their first pop up.

Their new restuarant currently under renovation and will be operating in Bangsar. I am looking forward for this.

tiffin at the yard (38)

Serve pippin hot as I was aiming them quite a while and all their service are made to order. Once, this portion is sold out, they will make a new next batch. So aim for the corner area which gives you a little crunch and also this is pack with flavours. With the kind of stock that they are using and it is cook to perfection!

I also tried their Chicken and Duck Paella @ RM 32. It is not too bad, not the usual you can get in KL. Worth to give it a try but still Squid Ink is the best.

Beef Jianbing @ RM35, which is fried rice wrapped with egg, and topped with sous-vide beef shoulder.

Not a bad dish, as it heads towards more on the salty end.

One of my friend is vegan so she opted for Bagellicious.

Another recommended stall is this Philipno Jamaican stall. I totall miss out their stall picture as this stall sits right opposite Red Red Botak Head.

Pretty good dish, as meat is soft and generous with avocado. Pack with spice flavours and it is something unique that I come across. Worth to give it a try as it is at RM 35.

tiffin at the yard (31)

 

read some other post : Alta burger seems to be a big hit here which I think I miss out or do not see them. Will certainly aim them on my next visit.

2 stalls I think would recommend that I personally think worth to try:

  1. Olivia Deli – Squid Ink Paella
  2. Jamaican Philipno food – oppsite red red botak head stall.

This is a cool place to be in if you are not too sure where to do during this festive season. A great place to chill and catch up. Certainly will come back again!
