Many of us know that 1-Utama is going thru major renovation especially on the old wing. From there, it had attracted many new retailing outlets to be operating in there and now if we go again, you get to see new F&B shops too. One of the newly operated outlet in the mall is this catchy shop that the front is painted red which is very eye catchy in the mall is this Watami Japanese Casual Restaurant as this lot used to be operate by Italianese which I rate one of the best in food among their other outlet.
[Update Jan 2014: NO Longer in operation]
Watami is another new concept with Japanese Fusion style dining.
Love the interior that painted with red, dim with orangy lights that make it a perfect comfort place to dine in.
Seating arrangement also have in their own private session with a table of 2-4 .. .
A little private corner with table for 2 that have some wooden structure to block it.
In their menu, they offer quite a good range of food ranging from classic sashimi, Japanese rool, pan fried, and others.
If you dine in a group, you can opt to choose on their value saving package group set ranging from 2-4 pax set. As this round we are in a group of 4, we decided to go for the set that is charge at RM200+ with the actual value of RM282 ++ that give you lots of food to be place on the table.
YOu can choose what type of drinks you want but we decided to go for 4 different types.
– green citrus cola
– green citrus green tea
– green citrus tea
– green citrus Yuzu Marmalade Soda
Assorted Sashimi is in a fine cut, quite thick and fresh.
Tokusen Sushi Moriawase is a plate mixture of a few assorted sashimi
Teriyaki Chicken Salad
I always love Japanese Salad because of their special dressing that pairs it very well. For ladies that decided to go for salad, this is one of a good choice!
Wafu Pizza – pizza topped with terriyaki chicken that specially made in super thin slice which I called it Japanese Style, crispy on the edge of the pizza with the sauce that makes the pizza disappear within minutes after it was served.
followed by an egg was serve along with . . .
Udon that we get to choose in a types of 3 ..
to pair along with our hotpot Shio Chanko Nabe, that is being offer in the set.
First few sips of the soup taste great and addictive as it head towards the end of the base it gets more salty.
One of my favorite for the night is Wafu Hitokuchi Steak, that is cook medium well, just nice to chew and dip along with the sauce to make it extra kick, yet I still prefer mine to be eaten without the sauce. . 😀
Tokyo GyudonTokyo Gyudon is beef rice bowl with hot spring egg in Tokyo style. Fine slices of beef being cook along that top with half boil egg Japanese style.
At the end of the meal, the sets came with 4 ice cream and again we decided to order all flavour and share among us. Vanilla ice cream, black sesame ice cream, matcha ice cream, chocolate ice cream, one of the stand out ones are Chocolate and black sesame.
Well, Watami certainly offer a nice dining experience especially with their good attentive customer service that they have train for their staff.
