Pipers (1)

Hidden in high rise residential, smack this few restaurant and bar that operate in Mont Kiara residence area and you will be surprise on what you will discover. One of them is this lovely restaurant & bar – Pipers. If you are around the area, you would not notice this building as it is pretty camoflush with the rest of the residential area or more like a club house, but its actually a public area.

Its more like a neighbourhood bar that gives you some quiet space that you wanna chill with nice background music and personal touch of the bar tender. Not only that, they do have live band playing on Thursday – Saturday. Best option is to go for their bottle beer.

Food menu is rather simple with a few pages to flick around. Price here I would say slightly expensive for this kind of ambiance.

Tried their Crispy Calamari with Bali Hai sambal @ RM22. Seldom I would really like appetizer or this might look normal. One of the taste that makes this pretty good is chef own made Bali Hai Sambal as the taste of the sauce is light lime sour and spicy end. The rings of calamari is fried to perfection that its crispy on the outside yet the meat still maintain moist.

Thai Style Crab & Avocado Stack with creamy Lemon Dressing @ RM23. Presentation looks awesome, that filled with top layer creamy lemon dressing, then finely cut tomato, a layer of fresh season crabmeat with thai sauce and avocado base. Among so many starters, this is one of a kick ass. Slighltly creamy  and all aroma burst into flavor in the first bite, you can taste on the pale lemon taste yet freshness of crab meat and avocado.

Pan Seared Foie Gras & Grilled Eel on Daikon bed with Truffle Teriyaki Sauce @ RM45. A well balance dish and not too salty. Foie gras is fried to perfection that one side layer is slightly crisp and inside is so soft till nearly melt in my tongue. Eel been added to add on some mouthful bite of meat.

Overall, their starters do kick ass. Their main and dessert still need rooms for improvement. Believe that the chef is master in sauces as all his sauces is well balance and really really good.

Eating Japanese food can consider everyone’s favorite, but how many of us are able to cook or make sushi? During my uni life at oversea, me and my housemate did try to make sushi ourselves by using our own logic to do it without find a proper recipe to go along with (which is very wrong) but then the meal turns out to be not so bad, the rice we did was using Japanese rice but not as sticky as it is compare to the restaurants.

This time besides eating nice sushi, now I had a chance to learn from the best from Chef Yanagida by teaching us make simple and nice sushis, eg: Nigiri Sushi, Tobiko Gunnkan Nigiri, California Roll and Inari Sushi. During the session, I had hands-on experience by in making the sushi, it was not that easy as I thought by looking at the chef at sushi bar wrapping it but I still prefer my responsible by just eating it.

One of the trick to make the rice sticky was to cook a . . . . . . (cannot tell) to make the rice sticky.

After the special sauce was cook, the sauce was pour into the rice and let it dry up. (part to ensure sticky of the rice and aromatic)
