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
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.
Its a very simple contemporary Japanese Restaurant with a simple touch of the culture.
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.
Very simple menu with all the mains, appetizer and desert are available with reasonable pricing.
A slight twist with western menu and some are infuse with beer.
I was told that their yakitori range are pretty amazing.
Kyoto Lab Summer Salad @ RM16
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
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.
California roll @ RM18
This is one of my favorite for the night as cutting of mango cubes and tuna sashimi being rolled together.
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
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
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.
Soft Shell Crab was finish within seconds as it was serve pippin hot, cripsy and soft inside. @ RM25
Australian Grain Fed Chilled Tenderloin @ RM60
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~
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.
Coco’s Nutz – Malibu, 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
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
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
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~
Right after the dinner, we head down to the main area to enjoy our next performance. . .
It was pack with people to see one of our youtube, or internet celebrity .. Who is that?
We have Belvedere Vodka for the night as I always love mine to mix it with raspberry.
New friends were made during that night along with the Marketing Manager of The Pool . .:D thanks to Isaac for the picture
This is the person that I am talking about with no stranger than Leng Yein’s presenting her new album with Taiwanese artist Sugardaddy that rap along. Impressive.
