I just discover back a folder that I have been looking back last time. It was a job I am assisting my friend for a food photoshoot in this restaurant for her magazine write up. It was a great exposure and experience for that time given by Ee Lune my ex colleague.

I am sure some of you have read the write up for Ozeki Italia (click here) which is a new division from this company with a cross mixture of authentic food with Italian. As we head back to the main branch that had been operate in the heart of Kuala Lumpur which is Ozeki Toyko Cuisine located next to KLCC or the building next to Poppy Club (used to be).

ozeki (1)

Ozeki Tokyo Cuisine offer authentic Japanese food dining experience which is not so much localise. Filling your plate with fresh sashimi and chef special of the day is something that you would usually hunt for. I love something which is unique or not in the menu.

ozeki (2)

a huge spacious place that can easily filled up 80 – 100 pax of customer at one go and this restaurant have their loyal customer base which is most of them are Japanese.

ozeki (3)

Soft music playing at the background, great service from the floor crew, recycle sakae bottle used to decorate as wall partitions, providing a simple dining experience.

ozeki (4)

All these kitchen crew are all train by  Executive Chef Hitoshi Kimijima . ..

ozeki (5)

and I get to see Executive Chef  Hitoshi Kimijima with his superb knife skills on slicing all the sashimi. I often get to watch this on Japanese drama but never live and up close.

ozeki (7)

Salmon sashimi. .

ozeki (8)

Edamame boil in hot water that make it soft and warm. I used to dislike this dish and friend thought me how to enjoy it ..

ozeki (9)

ozeki (10)

Then we were pamper with sake. I love this bottle of sake that is serve on chill, simple and easy to drink and pairs well with sashimi. Fragrant on the after taste. If you do come here and dine, try to order this bottle. – Recommended~ (apologize for not knowing the name of this sake)

ozeki (11)

another one is with plum and lemon flavor. Simply refreshing and drink with care.

ozeki (12)

ozeki (13)

Mango unagi salad. . . . something new to me as the dressing pairs well with unagi and mango, mango is fresh and unagi been grill to perfection.

ozeki (14)

Presentation of Sashimi boat is simple and place on top of a ice bed to ensure the freshness.. Needless to say, it had been a while since I come near to good sashimi and no wonder this outlet is still standing strong after 10 years.

ozeki (15)

One word to say, it taste awesome!

ozeki (16)

Next is this beef cubes being place on top of the hot grilling pan and let it grill slowly. Juicy and moist  as it is and the fats of beef make grilling and oozing out along make the taste even more aromatic.

ozeki (17)

something light to dance on our palate that seve in a unique way with a huge cube of wooden plank at the bottom with fire cooking along on this huge shell of scallop is something light and tasty. Huge scallop meat is fresh, chewy when biting.

ozeki (18)

Volcano roll . ..

ozeki (19)

One of the best volcano roll that I can find in KL, with fresh ingredient and drench with burning cheeze along its the most perfect dish and taste I have discover so far. Would not want to describe this and would love you to go try for yourself. – highly recommended!

If you are looking for authentic Japanese restaurant to dine, this is one of a restaurant would fall into my recommended dining area and of course there are other good Japanese dining as well, but this outlet is not to be miss.

The Apartment is not like a new development or project that is upcoming. A place that had been establish with very homey concept as The Apartment was named. Understand that many of us dine outside after work very often as the outlet aims to provids a casual, comforting home dining experience set in a modern apartment-like restaurant setting that is located at The Curve shopping mall.

the apt (2)

With their cozy environment, I used to hang out here with my friend for drinks on weekends as they play great soft music as background music and perfect place to chill and chat.

the apt (4)

It is exactly like a house as this is one of the few sections I love to be seated around as I called it living room area or bed room style located one floor up.

the apt (5)

A simple DJ deck area to spin off some music. I guess we can be DJ ourselves too, by doing a mixture at home, plug and play here. :p

the apt (3)

For special functions or private events, definitely wound be one of the place to consider as can easily cater quite a crowd with their huge dining space.

the apt (9)

Ever dine before in your bathroom? Hehe, they do have a bathroom dining concept here too.

the apt (11)

Okay, lets start off with what The Apartment have to offer and for the month of April, the have something special inhouse as currently they are doing The Chef Series that feature special serving of deep sea delicacies themed menu Unlimited Flavours Of The Ocean. They will be featuring in 2 parts as for Part 1 which is in April and Part 2 is on May.

the apt (12)

A flavorful Oyster Shot that prepare in shot glass to give you the after pleasure. I was told not to use spoon to dig up instead I just have to eat the whole thing like drinking a shot. Being a good follower I just follow and I am amaze on how the taste blend in. A bit sweet and sour from the mango, oyster is fresh that the after taste is fresh and refreshing. I do not mind to have another 2-3 more shots. 😀  RM11.90

the apt (15)

Next is the steak which is prepare medium well that comes to my liking and for the first time I see a steak pair with prawns mixture with  au jus, garlic, chillies, honey glazed tiger prawns & mash. Surf ‘n’ Turf is one of the latest addition to the menu.

the apt (16)

Almond Crusted Cod is one of my favourite for the night. Cod is very soft and fresh, with a gentle cut in between it just open instantly. Almond was fried crispy and brings the aroma out of it, cook along with some clams make it sweet and a bit sourish taste of tomato that makes the taste perfectly good! I just drink the soup base till dry. The cod nevertheless was being attack and gone within seconds. – Highly Recommended!

the apt (17)

Red Snapper @ RM39.90

the apt (18)

Pan fried red snapper with couscous and lemon butter reduction is one of the dish that suits most of our local people here as one of the reason I am saying this is most of our locals love to have their meals with rice. Therefore a simple pan fried fresh snapper and pair along with flavorful rice is good~

the apt (19)

Stuffed Squid is heading towards more of our local taste, a bit spicy on the end yet juicy squid being stuff with risotto to make it solid and goes along with the gravy. Every one just loves it. @ RM25.90

the apt (13)

Another dish that I like is Jamie’s Duck Pasta that brings you Fettuccine with shredded slow-roasted duck and tomato red wine ragout, topped with toasted pine nuts. Not many places that can cook this well especially with duck involve, and they have make it good with slices of duck meat cook along with red wine and the tomato taste just did not over power everything. Highly Recommended!

the apt (20)

Looking for something not so complicated then go for Tossed Pasta Plain is very simple yet flavourful as some of them just like their portion with lots of chili flakes. Too much will make your tongue numb yet its nice. 😀

the apt (21)

Prawn Capellini with tiger prawns, lemon zest, olive oil and marjoram.

the apt (22)

English Lamb Curry is another new addition to the menu. They are being generous with the lamb as its quite a big piece for a portion like that, well marinated and cook till the lamb is soft and serve along with special briyani, egg, carrot raita (yoghurt) and cashew nuts.  – Recommended!

the apt (23)

After great main dish on the table and it always have to get something sweet as ending and comes with Creme Brulee that is perfectly burn on the top to make a fine thin crips while your spoon poke upon it gives you a crack sound after that. Top with a scoop of ice cream and pretty good enough to make the sweet [email protected] RM13.90

the apt (24)

A desert that reflect much on our local delicacies as this  Buah Melaka Desert serve  palm sugar dumpling served and coconut ice cream @ RM12.90

the apt (25)

Premium Dark Chocolate Cake & Banana Pecan Cake 

the apt (26)

It used to be a hype on Red Velvet Cake and I have only tried once so far and this would consider the second time. I love this piece more with the texture of the cake is nice and the two cheeze layer is being put with the right amount that does not give you the feel of too much and strawberry dressing pairs it well. – recommneded

the apt (27)

For those who loves chocolate alot then you would not want to miss this Chocolate Mousse

the apt (28)

When this Baked Chocolate Pudding, every one’s eye was set on it and had make this desert super star for the night with its oozing chocolate syrup flow out along and with a scoop of ice cream being serve along and it is being freshly done from the oven and serve piping hot as upon this order you would have to wait for 15-20 minutes to get it. It was all worth the wait. I certainly would love to have this desert all by myself! not going to share! – Highly Recommended! 

the apt (29)

For those of you prefer something not that sweet then this slice definately suits your taste bud as Homemade Carrot Cake served with mascarpone cream and carrot syrup.

After read a few post on history as this restaurant at Singapore which alot people recommending not to be miss. . As for Malaysians now, need not have to travel so far to enjoy such a beer that Craft Brews is a Non-Halal Restaurant is the latest addtion to our very local F & B market that all of us can enjoy their special brew beers by locating themselves one of the prime location in Mutiara Damansara.

Craft Brew

Craft Brew (2)

Love their, dim lighting, modern contemporary style yet setting off a soft music on the background had put this place into my list for gathering and hang outs also love their waiter and waitress outfit.

Craft Brew (3)

One of the special beer brew from Singapore that serve on tab along with Monster Green Lager and English Ale.

Craft Brew (4)

At this bar area, you will see pipes pressure gauges and levers around the bar area design with international microbrewery look.

Craft Brew (5)

Craft Brew (6)

Yet we get a warm welcome with a box and a letter that contains our names and a few small packets teaching us how to brew our very own beer.

Craft Brew (7)

Wide range of drinks to select from and to be enjoy.

Craft Brew (8)

When I walked to this area, I got very surprise to see a beer in GREEN COLOUR? This would be my very first encounter and that is the beer that I must try first. The beer starts with (from right to left) Czech Pilsner, English Ale, Monster Green Lagger, Weizen (wheat beer).
Ended up my favourite of the night was Czech Pilsner and Monster Green Lager. Love the smoothness and the barley and wheat boil brew of the taste individually.

Craft Brew (9)

Everyone hit on the food which looks finger licking good.

Craft Brew (10)

Craft Brew (11)

‘Honey Mustard Ribs’ as I used to hate mustard years ago and now I have learn how to enjoy the taste of it. With a bit of honey sweetness that had been grill till the honey had soak into the ribs yet mustard seasoning which is a bit sour just combines both of the flavor very well as I am swallowing my saliva while looking at this pic recalling the taste.

Craft Brew (12)

Craft Brew (13)

Follow by ‘Mex-Tex Ribs’, juicy and succulent yet soft from the inside out with the seasoning that grill on the grill er is something we just do not want to miss out. I clean the ribs solid clean till the bone got dry after left a while on the plate.

Craft Brew (14)

After some chatting, eating and drinking, we are on to our Beer lesson. How do we enjoy our beer to the best.

Craft Brew (15)

All of us looking so serious and paying attention to our class.

Craft Brew (16)

One of the lesson is how do you enjoy the ‘Monster Green Lager‘ the best taste of it, is to eat along with a piece of bacon, that the saltiness that add in a layer on your tongue yet you drink with he smoothness, aromatic beer that wash away with the saltiness on the tongue add in extra kick on it. Its like red wine with steaks.
It was a great experience with Craft Brews with great food and beers. Surely I would return for their food as the price range is kinda reasonable and of course all credits to Hsu Jen for the special invites.

Found this shop while I was dropping my friends back at Northam Hotel then used the back exit and drive drive drive saw this nice cafe that caught my attention. So arrange with my friend to come here try out the food since they have nice outlook and believe that the interior might be nice. Suprisingly………………….
A very classic look that they have from the outside with customer parking available directly in front of the shop as the parking spot around the area is quite limited.
This is their interior, which is simple, cozy and nice. Perfectly nice for lunch or dinner with friends playing with nice soft music as the background. It was sardine pack during lunch time.

The menu is quite classic with black and white..

The best part of all, the food price is very reasonable with the environment they are providing.

The drinks that we ordered was ‘Honey Lemon’ for RM2.80 and ‘Peach Tea’ for RM2.20 The honey lemon is abit sweet as abit more honey was pour into it. If they reduce it abit would be perfectly nice. The peach tea is refreshing enough to quench your thirst.
The meal was served and I got surprise that was well decorated with the price have put in there. This is ‘Cajun Chicken’. I must say that the rice is very nice as it has alil bit of herb taste and the rice is very soft which is not too dry. I must say that the chicken taste damm good for the first few mouth, as it was perfectly grilled and eat alot with the gravy is not bad but I prefer not to go along with it. As the more chicken I had in my mouth it started to get salty and must eat with rice. The portion was small to medium serving as it would perfectly suit a women. Just nice for a light meal or for women who is goin on diet. It is price at RM 8.90.
This was our next order. Hollanaise Herb Chicken’. The fish is well steam which the meat is soft and you need to squeeze the lemon to cover up the fish smell. If eat it raw, have a very strong fish smell which like the body did not wash for 3 days. The herb on the fish with the lemon juice makes the fish taste good as it the fish meat is so soft. RM 11.90 it.
With their food quality and the pricing of they have on the cafe and with their very friendly staff they have I would highly recommended this cafe.
