This is about the famous Burnt Cheesecake in Tokyo Restaurant at Lot10, KL. Who have not tried before? To be honest, I have just tried it since early this year and it is pretty good. Recently, I saw a few friend posted about their new seasonal Green Tea Macha burnt Cheese Cake.

CheeseCake Tokyo Restaurant (1)

a place that gives you a cozy ambiance. a perfect place to chill and chat with your friends. If you do come on weekend, do prepare to queue for an estimated time of 15 – 30 minutes. As most of the people are here for the cheesecake will be seated at the bar area or high bar table. Space is slightly limited as diners just take their time to chill and continue chatting with their friends.

CheeseCake Tokyo Restaurant (2)

If you are here for their alcohol, they do have draft beer selection as above and some cocktail with Japanese Whisky, sake base. Do check em out.

CheeseCake Tokyo Restaurant (3)

The original famous Classic burnt Cheesecake @ RM 21. This is their signature 6th Avenue Cheesecake as peeps are just queuing for this. Love the soft creaminess of this. The chill temperate of the cake is just perfect. Not too icy cold nor too soft. Impressive is their silky smooth whipped cream.

This is their new seasonal or limited edition Green Tea burnt cheesecake @ RM 25 (if I remember correctly).

CheeseCake Tokyo Restaurant (4)

Flavors of Green tea is quite prominent, and it certainly felt that they are using slightly premium green tea to make this up. For green tea lover you might like it. For me, I think it is not too bad as I felt that the original taste much better. Could be I had salty lunch before I came over.

During this period, they have set up 3 different types of experience for you known as The Gallery, Theater and Food.

At the Theater, you will be brought through on the season of Japan that is shown in HD. If it is in 3-D glasses with some smell effect, it would be indeed an awesome experience. Triggering your visual for the four Japanese seasons and the history and foundation of Kyoto food, which is considered the best of all Japanese cuisine is the second part of the journey.

In this testing session, Chef Sasaki gave a live presentation of his two signature dishes – Chirasizushi (Scattered Topping Sushi) and Saba-sugatazushi (Whole Mackerel Lightly Matured Sushi).

Hanami (8)

Before we start, lets share with you about Chef Sasaki history. He is the 7th generation chef that still holding strong on this classics signature restaurant in Kyoto – IZUU Restaurant that was established since 1781. Chef Sasaki is known for his culinary prowess in preparing the popular mackerel sushi.

After training for three years at a famous sushi restaurant in Osaka, he joined IZUU, with the aim to preserve the flavours and culture of Kyoto’s mackerel sushi. The sushi specialist continues the tradition of his forefathers, adding significant touches of Japanese flavours and culture into one of his most-loved dish, to pass it to the next generation. This method of luxury food is still by traditional methods by carefully selecting the ingredients including fatty mackerel from the ocean near Japan.

Hanami (9)


Hanami (10)

As the roll is prepared and upon cutting, you will see the mackerel shape in the sushi is prepare and cut to perfection where it resembles their brand logo, rabbit.

Hanami (11)

We were given 2 pieces of Saba-sugatazushi where one is freshly prepared and another piece is left overnight. Two pieces indeed do give you different taste as I love the one that left overnight where the taste of the fish is more pungent, slightly chewy and the flavour of the leaves smoke into the rice. It is indeed an enjoyable bite. Some others do prefer the fresh piece as it is fresh.

Hanami (12)

We also had the opportunity to try the Kyoto-style Chirashi-zushi (Scattered Topping Sushi) @ 3240JPY ~ RM120.00, which is another signature dish of Chef Sasaki. In case you are wondering what was ‘scattered’, there are kinshi egg, prawn, squid and sea bream. This is my first experience of Chirashi prepared from a well known chef.

The flavour is amazing, as the ingredient is prepared in layered and once you have the bowl, mix all the ingredient in it and it gives you burst of flavours in your mouth. Especially the fresh leaves that is used, it enhance the taste by giving a little freshness and slight bitterness to give your taste bud a bit of twist. The rice is done to perfection as it is mix with a special ingredient and the fully egg is indeed light and airy.

Hanami (13)

Hanami (15)

Great meal ended with the combination of Sakura Mochi & Japanese Green Tea. I love the taste of the leave that add on the fragrance of the sakura mochi, and of course if you eat it by its own it doesnt give you any excitement, as the reason of the warm green tea is there as for you to take a bit of the mochi while you are finishing to the end, drink a sip of the green tea as it opens up your taste bud to a whole new different aroma of the leaves and very nice fragrant lingering after that. I surely do not mind to have 2 set of this.
