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 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.
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.
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.
All these kitchen crew are all train by Executive Chef Hitoshi Kimijima . ..
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.
Salmon sashimi. .
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 ..
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)
another one is with plum and lemon flavor. Simply refreshing and drink with care.
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.
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.
One word to say, it taste awesome!
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.
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.
Volcano roll . ..
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.
