I have been to The Pool a few times for functions and friends party. Neither did I realise that there is actually a Japanese restaurant located above the premises  Its actually a new addition to the night spot and was previously operated by Spasso Milano before moving to Pavilion KL.- Kyoto Lab Japanese Restaurant

Kyoto (1)

With the restaurant name Kyoto Lab and there is actually a huge painting on the wall that resembles who is actually Kyoto for the restaurant.

Kyoto (2)

Its a very simple contemporary Japanese Restaurant with a simple touch of the culture.

Kyoto (3)

Simen wall and parquet wooden floor that made up the place and the best part is all their table is made of recycle materials (wood, steal and glass) which we are totally impress.

Kyoto (5)

Very simple menu with all the mains, appetizer and desert are available with reasonable pricing.

Kyoto (6)

A slight twist with western menu and some are infuse with beer.

Kyoto (4)

I was told that their yakitori range are pretty amazing.

Kyoto (7)

Kyoto Lab Summer Salad @ RM16

Kyoto (8)

Sashimi Nouyeou Salmon Trout turns out to be every ones favourite as a sashimi being drench with unique sweet and sour sauce, with a hint of slight spicy at the end. Certainly a unique dish as it is and worth to try!  RM25

Kyoto (10)

Green Dragon @ RM24 – prawn rolled with Avocado.  Fresh fried prawns being roll along in the middle and make it one of a warm filling yet very fresh.

Kyoto (11)

California roll @ RM18

Kyoto (12)

This is one of my favorite for the night as cutting of mango cubes and tuna sashimi being rolled together.

Kyoto (13)

then comes the serving of yakitori range. . . Scallop Yakitori being grill to perfection. Soft and juicy and slightly chewy shows the freshness of the scallop. @ RM8

Kyoto (14)

Gyuniku Asparamaki turns out to be our favourite for the range as its thin slice beef being grill and season with their special sauce along with asparagus in it. Perfect! @ RM10

Kyoto (15)

Gyoza can be one of the best that I can find, pan fried perfectly on one sided that its crips and the filling in it is generous with ingredient, compact yet fragrant with their own seasoning. Soy sauce at the base make it a perfect combination.

Kyoto (16)

Egg plant

Kyoto (17)

Soft Shell Crab was finish within seconds as it was serve pippin hot, cripsy and soft inside. @ RM25

Kyoto (18)

Kyoto (19)

Australian Grain Fed Chilled Tenderloin @ RM60

Kyoto (21)

Back in Malaysia I rarely look at cocktail menu as they are pretty expensive and I must say I am totally impress with their cocktail menu here. Uniquely name and one of its kind. Then only get to know that its actually the same owner with The Hill Damansara. No wonder the watermelon looks alike~

Kyoto (22)

Jagger Bomb always comes into my mind but this outlet they make slight twist on it to Skittles Bomb @ RM20 Cointreau, Red Bull and Skittles, is the combination and taste good. Sweet-end with skittles if you leave it too long. Drink it when it was serve immediate.

Kyoto (23)

 Coco’s NutzMalibu, Rum & fresh coconut juice @ RM 28 is a must try cocktail with light coconut taste at the end yet alcohol kicks into your taste bud after that. Really one of its kind and no wonder they bagged the Winning Cocktail in 2011’s JTI Horeca Bartending Contest

Kyoto (24)

Watermelon Slush had made a big hit in their Hill Outlet as many people find this a good bargain and not only that, the presentation of the whole watermelon cut with at heart shape on it making it uniquely by itself and famous among couples. Till date its still one of their best seller. Doesnt taste alcoholic at all and its all overpower with watermelon taste and the more you drink, you will enjoy this drink alot as then the kick comes in, you can call it a night.. @ RM40

Kyoto (26)

This is no ordinary Milo Ais that you often took it at mamak stall, as the look of presentation might deceive you. They have made a special ingredient with it by adding Rum, Bailey, Kahlua and Milo @ RM 28

Kyoto (27)

Nutella Martini @ RM25

Food and drinks in Kyoto Lab certainly can impress us and of course it will be a great place to chill and dine with their amazing range both food and cocktail. Certainly I will be back~

Kyoto (29)

Right after the dinner, we head down to the main area to enjoy our next performance. . .

Kyoto (30)

Kyoto (31)

It was pack with people to see one of our youtube, or internet celebrity .. Who is that?

Kyoto (28)

We have Belvedere Vodka for the night as I always love mine to mix it with raspberry.

Kyoto (32)

New friends were made during that night along with the Marketing Manager of The Pool . .:D thanks to Isaac for the picture

Bangkok Trip Day 1: Part 1 (click here)

After all of them had arrive, that we did have quite alot of food while waiting for them, click on part 1 to see futher more. Then my friend Annie came by and lead us to China Town by using public transportation. First using SKY Train, then their Bangkok Subaway which we stop at Hua Lamphong MRT.

part 1 (20)

Then  I saw this light so nice shining down to the floor and looks like the sequal part of the movie – Star trek where they transport themself machine and ask all of them to make a post. so this is how it come out. . lol . .

part 1 (19)

Then out at the station, we took tut tut to China Town which cost us 80 Bhat for 3 person which is okay lahhh . . .

Tut Tut is also known as one of the famous mode of transportation also, one of the most convinient to move around in city area of  Thailand which the vehicle is small and they drive pretty fast, they usually only do short distance which is around the city area anything futher than that, have to go for taxi.

For tourist just be aware that, you have to ask a few tut tut before you hop on to get their market rate as if you dont, they will just rip you off in price if they known us are foreigners/travellers.

part 1 (1)

part 1 (2)

This is ChinaTown at night, know as one of the busiest area that filled with lots of food along the streets. I would say that it is more like a street food of Thai Style which I just cant wait to visit most of the stalls around here, and the worst of all, when I reach, it rained!

part 1 (3)

Then Annie introduce us one of her favourite restaurant that had indoor seating and outdoor seating, as we cant be seated outside as it rain heavily, so we got no choice have to sit indoor.

part 1 (4)

our pot of Tom Yum Kung! its spicy enough with just a few sips that my tears start dripping, sourish is just as I prefer and the prawns are fresh.

part 1 (5)

Fried Prawns that fried till it look like its bandage, cripsy inside out. . .

part 1 (6)

part 1 (7)

Another dish with prawns and small squids as I like this the most, with the taste a bit salty spicy black pepper taste and eat along with rice is just nice!

part 1 (8)

BBQ prawns that is just fresh bbq on the pit that just season with some salt and must dip with some soy sauce to bring up the taste.

part 1 (9)

This is star of the night, its crab meat fried along with egg, and make it a bit spicy sour and mix with rice is a perfect combination. I do not know what is it called as it is written in thai and most of this dish is order by Annie . Total damage for the night is around 1500bhat which we find it quite cheap that they give generous amount of prawns, crab meat and other ingredients.

part 1 (10)

Next is this stall that must not miss as I meet another of my friend Golf as she is having her desert time at this shop and she told me must try if I love shark fin’s and bird next. Since we are here, just give it a try as this shop is located 6 shop lots away from the seafood restaurant I ate.

I also did read in some blogs that China town here is famous for this 2 items too. So no doubt that our stomach its already at its max capacity, yet we still must try it.

part 1 (11)

They are prepare fresh in a small stall outside the main road that cook in claypot. yum yumn!

part 1 (12)

Fresh Shark Fin’s

part 1 (17)

It was sardin pack in the shop as we have to wait for our turn that we came in big group as another big group that just left.

part 1 (13)

Here comes our hot pot of shark fin soup as its available in 2 version which is 300bhat and 500 bhat, the difference is the ingredient they added in which of course we opt for the 500Bhat and look at the chunks of shark fin, as for 500 bhat like that its pretty generous and damm worth to eat.

part 1 (14)

Taste is pretty good, not too starchy, mild in taste and of course I love mine to add in with lots of vinegar. Crab meat were pretty generous too and enjoy every sip of it that I can chew on all the fine slices of shark fins.

part 1 (15)

Then we order some desert which is this Longan with Ginko

part 1 (16)

Then of course another signature that must not miss is their Bird nest soup that served it in warm, and doesnt taste too sweet and the bird next quality is there, not to say the best one but for the amount we paid I would consider it good. its 300Bhat per bowl.

part 1 (18)

All I can say is, the sea food shop located directly opposite this Goverment Savings Bank and the current standing place of me where I took this picture is where by the Shark Fin Soup and Bird Next Shop is.

If I am not mistaken, its located along the streets of Thanon Yauwarat

part 1 (21)

After meals, then my friend she ask me, where do you want me to bring you club? there are 3 options for you:

1) the place which is famous with foreign tourist?

2) the place which is famous on our locals?

3) the place which is famous on our locals but age around 18-22 crowd?

then directly we choose option 2 and came by to this hottest club in town that famous with its local crowd that located at Eakamai Soi 7 Thonglor and the club name is NungLen . . .Well I would said that all of us enjoy ourself to the max and went back sober, with great musics, hot chicks and cheap whisky as we got our Black Lable 1 L for just 2200 Bhat!

It was a great start for all of us on our very first day and 2nd day early morning we had a good international breakfast which is a famous cafe chain from New York, on next post, be prepare to get ur saliva dripped out . .
