Japanese Fusion


No no, I am not in Korea. Super Boring Club is one of the latest addition into this happening row at Jalan Mesui. It offers Korean Japanese fusion food. Happy to see that this row are growing to a standard of a nice neighborhood bar and eatery like those in Bangkok or Korea. They are sited just right next to the famous No Black Tie bar.

On the outlook itself, it felt that you are in Korea at one of the small alley eatery.

Love the ID of this place as it is modern hip chic, with jade titles and neon lighthing on the wall do add in the ambiance.

menu is pretty simple and direct. But I am quite suprise on the pricing of food in this outlet. Decently price and affordable, also the cocktails only start from RM 26.

Super Boring (10)

Hello my friend, time to take your chopstick and dig in.

Super Boring (11)

Their cocktail is indeed very impressive and creative. I had off the menu cocktail as the mixologist just mix one of his creative mix. Top with grill garlic that give you a slight charred taste with lychee.

Was thought on how to drink this.
1. Put the garlic and lychee stick into the drink
2. Smell first then sip

outcome: a very confusing drink to your brain as you smell garlic but you dont taste garlic. If you are adventurous, this is indeed a refreshing cocktail that you should give it a try. At the end, I bite off the garlic with lychee and a sip of it, it gives you a nice aroma that did not overpower each other.

Super Boring (12)

These 2 are their signature cocktails:

  1. Sake Asamboi @ RM 26 – love the mixture of this cocktails as it give you a nice balance layer of asamboi that give you the sour punch it needed yet end with a hint of sake aroma which is good to balance off.
  2. Sake Yuzu @ RM 26 – in our hot weather, this is the best drink to down it. If it were price at RM 16, I will down a few more glass. Simply refreshing, and love the acidity from yuzu and spice from ginger.

Super Boring (13)

Starting off with Miso Grilled Egg Plant @ RM 16.80 – deep fried egg plant with special home made miso. This is one of the best made eggplant dish that I have come across. A cleverly done dish that cut into cubes, charred nicely with hint of burnt taste. Nicely presented in a basket yet the magic is the miso glazed. It is so thick and caramelize that taste like honey but it is made from miso. The best part of this dish is the whole basket skin of egg plant.

Super Boring (14)

A seasonal dish to recommend too, which is off the menu. Beef tongue with this seasonal ice vegetable from Japan. Tongue marinate and cook to perfection. Nice balance of bbq and special sauce yet the tongue grill to perfection. Soft and juicy yet not too chewy. A perfect bite is with icy vegetable, tongue and egg. Give you a nice mouthful balance from crispy, soft, sour, spicy, chewy. Good!

Super Boring (15)

Some of you see me preparing Watermelon salad through my insta stories. This is whole new level. Yummy Spicy Baby Octopus @ RM 16.80. Baby Octopus with mushrooms, watermelon,cld spicy lime sauce. A dish that give you explosion of flavors. You can taste the freshness of baby octopus yet soft. Crunch it with a piece of watermelon that gives you the sweetness of juice that add another layer to cover up the taste octopus, yet the dressing in it give you a nice mild layer of sourish taste and heat that is need.

Super Boring (16)

I take this dish to pair with the Garlic Cocktail. Indeed an interesting combination.

Super Boring (17)

Order grilled Platter combo 2 @ RM 78Lamb char siew, Chicken, squid, wagyu striploin . In this dish, I am quite surpise with the house marination of chicken. It is so tender, juicy and fragrant. Eat with a slice of vegetable with a slice of their seasoning garlic and slide into your mouth. Bam!

Another interesting dish is the Lamb Char siew, season with house special char siew sauce, is just unique.

Super Boring (18)

Super Boring (19)

Awesome beef tataki  @ RM 28.80.  Love how the beef is being taken care off. Shining from the oil and a nice decent cut that give you a good chew in your mouth. Grill to perfection that it is slightly above medium rare. The fried garlic slices give you the crips and soft veggie to balance it off. Eat it 4 ingredient at one go.

Super Boring (20)

Smoked duck @ RM 20. Just look at the look of the quality of smoke duck. A nice layer of skin fat and the meat looks good. It is quite thick too.

was told by the crew that the best way to eat this is just put on the pit for about 1 n half minute each side then top with the house special sauce on top. Put on your plate to cool it down then eat the whole piece at one go. Give you a good mouthful of bite that burst with flavours.

Super Boring (21)

Super Boring (22)

It is always too tempted for me when I see in the menu got Shoyu Ramen. I am a big fan of shoyu soup base Ramen. The soup is indeed very interesting. Pack with flavour yet it is vegetable base soup. It does give you a hint of flavour that we are missing out when we were as a kid.

Super Boring (23)

this is not a sauce jar. Presented in a way that it looks like one. End my night with another glass of cocktail. This would be my favourite as it is stronger. Suntory Lover @ RM 32.

I can taste a few layers of flavours at one sip. Great mixologist mix.

Super Boring (24)

Super Boring (25)

At the end of the night, wanted to try something sweet. Ordered Yuzu Sorbet @ RM 10 & Cornflakes @ RM 10. Cornflakes is indeed very interesting. Do try it out.

Find that their Happy Hour is quite worth it.

Finally, a eatery that give you a nice food journey of flavours. There is flair in their marination or cooking. Simple yet flavorful. Loving it. Will certainly come back again. If you put it Korean fusion or Japanese Fusion still the same. One of the best place for Korean Japanese fusion restaurant in KL. Certainly will be one of my recommended place.

I have heard so much about this place, Mei by Fat Spoon. Great comments from my boss, to my colleague and friends only till I decided to pay a visit to this place as we do not want to go too far for lunch.

Mei (1)

The appearence on the outside seems misleading with its pure white wall with glass as the frontage and 3 little garden pots sit right at the front do give the impressions that they are not open. As you drive pass by, do take a peek into it. 🙂

Mei (2)

Love the interior which is minimalist classy with bright white brick with wooden table and chairs.

Mei (3)Mei (4)

Mei (5)

It is a Japanese Fusion Dining menu and price might seems a little steep for the ambiance and style of it.

Mei (6)

Tried their Lemon Grass Tea Cooler as the weather is pretty hot out there and turns out to be pretty refreshing, @ RM 10, and my friend she tried Iced coffee with Ice Cream @ RM 13 as there is nothing much to shout about it.

Mei (7)

Looking through the menu up and down, ended up I choose Light Braise Beef Short Ribs & Radish with Rice (Mirin Sauce) @ RM 18 turns out to be pretty good. Beef is cook its tenderness, juicy and pack with flavour. A simple dish yet delightful.

Mei (8)

Mei (9)

Next with a bit of fusion food range which is their Mushroom Cream Spaghettini @ RM 19 – shimeiji mushroom, oyster mushroom in a light cream sauce topped with seaweed and garlic chips.

Mei (11)

One of their signature dessert in the menu is Cempedak Spring Rolls @ RM 15 served with Vanilla Ice cream. No doubt it taste pretty good with pungent flavour of cempedak and with 5 strips and at that price, oh well, its pretty expensive.

Mei (12)

In their menu, which I did not try is their pretty impressive Salmon range rice where many recommended, and maybe will swing by again next round.

Just need to dig a little deep into your pocket for such a simple comfort food.

One of the latest outlet in Jaya One that offer a new twist of taste is Yama & J. Chef Yama that had been train at U.S in a few Japanese restaurant over past 30 years and now with its new concept in New York known as Japanese Fusion Sushi, that he had gain his fame there and now flying back to Malaysia to open this outlet to share the latest trend to our Malaysian.

I did ask him before, or not only me, why come back to Malaysia since you are doing so well in overseas. He answered, because he is a Malaysians and still his home ground. He is proud to bring back this concept. Chef Yama specialties are sauces. He always mention would love the diners to enjoy same ingredient but different taste.

Food in here is great and it will give you another dimension of what to taste in sushi. The only thing is you might love it or don so like it as in the chef special menu, its much drench with sauce, there is where the sushi/sashimi boat come in handy, to tone down the taste. My preference for those are:

Waikiki Roll, Volcano Roll, Art of Maki to kick start off with . .
If you are more adventure with your sushi, then I would highly recommend this place to try out.

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]

First few sips of the soup taste great and addictive as it head towards the end of the base it gets more salty.

Watami (20)

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. . 😀

Watami (21)

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.
