Bangsar Village 2


I have heard so much about this place or even when their first outlet open in The Curve, I have always keen to try it out. Well, it had been a while and now they even have their second branch since last year at Bangsar Village 2. Indeed I was lucky actually as it had been a while since I last surf for groupon in website and then I found this deal that they are doing 50% off on cash voucher. Without any hesitation purchase and of course would want to try this out.

I also read some blog that Senjyu, which means “eternity of life”. Sounds good, its like eating this then you got eternity of life. Of course to eat some fresh sashimi, its always good to choose to go either on Tuesday or Friday. Therefore I made my reservation on Friday.

If there were only 2 of us, I would always prefer to sit at the sushi counter. To see them make all this delicious sushi its an added advantage and most of the chef would talk to you and also would get to see what specialty they are making then we can order.

By looking at this panel, I am already drooling as the freshness of the oyster and octopus are flown in fresh right in the morning itself.

 All the sashimi here are cut fresh . .

senjyu (5)

 Even still slicing one of the salmon. The head chef is very friendly and telling me that what I should try some of their sashimi and some which is recommended by him.

Ambiance of this outlet is pretty decent like not 5 star fancy restaurant but good enough to reflect a modern Japanese dining.

I was here very early, as about 6pm and the whole shop is still warming up and i am their second customer.

senjyu (8)

There are a few items in the menu that I am keen to try.

senjyu (9)

Since the chef say his fish are really good, so I order a mix to try it out. Iso Mariawase @ RM 68

senjyu (10)

Love this whole platter as its really fresh. Serve slightly chilled and the fish meat texture are all good. For me I find that the oyster is too big for me to handle as I prefer it to be smaller as my own preference.

senjyu (11)

Soft Shell Crab Roll  as the sushi being fried a little before being serve out. Find that its a little soggy after that. @ RM 28

senjyu (12)

Chicken Teriyaki Zen @ RM 26

senjyu (13)

chicken cook to perfection that its still soft and teriyaki sauce coated well onto the meat. Perfect to go along with rice yet not too salty.

senjyu (14)

Beef Sukiyaki Zen as the soup I find it can be further improve more or maybe I have quite like the taste of what SuKi-Ya is offering. @ RM 48

senjyu (15)

 Beef slices are fresh too, as the colour of it already tells its good stuff.

senjyu (16)

as for Ika Karage I find it good value @ RM10 is kind pretty hard to find.

senjyu (17)

Garlic Fried Rice @ RM 7

senjyu (18)

Gindara Houbayaki is actually cod fish, one of my favourite fish to go along. Sad part is this is a seasonal item in this outlet as I am trying their special menu for the month. The sauce is too thick that cover the fish taste and its over cook too for my cod fish. Did not even finish the whole fish which is a sad thing. Well, would still stick to my typical cod fish style in the future. @ RM 48

In Bangsar Shopping complex, I have yet try many restaurants around the area, but I do know that this outlet sure do serve very nice and fresh sashimi. I now do know where to hunt for one when I am craving for it at a reasonable price. For other of their food item are pretty decent and nothing much to shout about.

The funny thing is that, when May Ling ask me to join her for dinner and told me the name of the restaurant I was like hah? again and again. .. as the restaurant name is called Ricetaurant which is located in Bangsar Village 2 which I cant even remember when is the last time that I came here.

The changes here is quite alot that now host quite a number of nice cafe’s and restaurant in this building.

Rice Taurant (1)

Get to know one of the reason that why the restaurant is name like that because of Asian’s culture that most of us need to have rice on most of our meals.

Ricetaurant offers best of dishes around the region that makes it a bit fusion style.

Rice Taurant (2)

I like the restaurant design in such a way that, it looks like a small little hidden cafe in some ally when I was in Melbourne, with tree trunk and very classic kitchen utensils to be party of the design.

Rice Taurant (4)

The place is not big, but good enough to provide us a very comfy dining space, with paintings on the wall and open space kitchen right in the corner.

Rice Taurant (5)

I like their menu, it reminds me when I was in primary school on maths homework exercise  book. Price wise is pretty decent which is not too over price with their portion being served.

Rice Taurant (6)

1) Apple, Elderflower and Lychee – just a perfect drink that blend till just perfect that I can taste the apple skin and very tiny small cubes of lychee – Recommended

2) Hainanese Tea

3) Pineapple, Orange and Mint

Rice Taurant (7)

Chinese Olives & Seafood Fried Rice smells good, that already know enough ‘wok hei’. The rice were fried till perfect dry, very fragrant in taste and just find that the black pepper taste slightly over power the overall taste. If they reduce a bit, it would be perfect.

Rice Taurant (8)

One of my favourite of the night is Teriyaki Chicken, which had been marinated very well, then cook along that the chicken is soft and every piece that I bite, the chicken is well coat with the sauce. Recommended

Rice Taurant (9)

A plain simple fried rice, that lean towards very simple chinese style is Chicken and Long Bean Fried Rice. Very mild in taste yet fragrant in wok hei and if you eat along with some curry dishes, just good enough to be satisfied for me.

Rice Taurant (10)

Another star of the night is Claypot Chicken, Yam and Dried Prawns in Nam Yue Sauce. Cook so well that the gravy is just thick enough, and some yam that just melts along with it, with cubes of chicken is soft and perfect to eat along with rice. – Recommended

Rice Taurant (11)

Sweet and Sour Fish

Rice Taurant (12)

If I am not mistaken this is Belacan Fried Chicken which is out of my expectation, fried crisply and by dipping with the sauce adds a bit kick but I still think eat it plain is much better and along with any of the fried rice.

Rice Taurant (14)

If you love cuisine from east, then this is another must order dish – Ayam Percik with Nasi Ulam

Rice Taurant (15)

The trick is, you must mix everything up Oxtail Asam Pedas, Sambal Belacan, Salted Egg, Ulam-ulam, Salted Fish and then eat along. Taste is pretty authentic with the ones I have tried before.

Rice Taurant (16)

After we are so full, I still decide to try out their Black Sticky Rice with Coconut Milk. Sticky enough, as the black stick rice cook till its soft and its a suprise that they add in lychee that makes it natural sweet on fruits, as I have always like mine to mix along with coconut milk which makes it perfect. Not many places I get to enjoy this and certainly this is one of the recommended desert for me.

After the whole meal, we are just satisfied and surely we are going to return for more, as most of the dish here are quite authentic and nice.
