yakitori in kl


One of the new kids on the block is Butaya Izakaya 豚家居酒屋 located in Sri Hartamas. a Japanese Yakitori place in KL. Actually just found out that it is not that new. Operating since June 2018. However this place do gain its popularity among my friends. Was here for dinner over friends birthday celebration.

Love the interior of this place where it is quite classic. Like a hidden join in Japan in one of the alley where to find this as a japanese food in kl.

This is one of their signature drink and turns out to be quite good. Sake mix with black beer. Do give it a try.

Menu is not huge as they are specializing in yakitori.

For this round celebration, everyone seems to be quite in Chinese New Year festive mood. Hence drinking session is doubling up.

Their ramen turns out to be pretty good for the price that they are tag along. From RM 18 – RM 28. I did came back again for their ramen especially their shoyu base.

Overall, find that the food is not too bad as according to  my friend, they do have alot of regular. However, if you want to enjoy Yakitori, my current favourite is still in Hartamas but at the other side. (Yakitori Dining Fukuda)

It had been a while since I last had quite a good Japanese Food. Yakitori Dining FUKUDA is one of my latest discovery that located in Sri Hartamas or just a stone throw away from Home n Away Bar. To my surpise that they had been operating for 4 years and little did I notice even I pass by the road 3-4 times a week.

As I walked into the restaurant, you will be greeted with the usual greetings. What surpise me that most of the diners there are filled with Japanese. Of course this makes the first impression that food in here will be quite authentic.

Smoked and flavours from Yakitori that is grilling fills the air, that my eyes are attracted to the pit. Making my stomach growls instantly.

Love the menu as the food here seem to be quite classic. Since there is 3 of us, we are starting off with:

yakitori fukuda (18)

1. Iburi-Gakko (Smoked Radish) with Cream Cheese @ RM 18.80. One of a unique item that I am trying for the first time. Was explain by the manager that the Smoked raddish is carefully picked by the owner and air flown all the way from Japan. No wonder the texture is so different. Give you little cruch yet a little chewy end. Cream cheese add the smoothness of flavour on it. – Recommended.

2. Karaage Fried Chicken @ RM 19.80

yakitori fukuda (29)

One of the classic or widely in the menu in some Japanese restaurant. Bara Chirashi @ RM 49.80 that is filled with  Sake (Salmon), Kampachi (Yellowtail), Hotate (Scallop), Ikura (Fish Roe) and Ebi (Prawn). I would say for the price I am paying, it seems all worth it as the sashim is fresh and quite genrous too. Just that I wish the soy sauce they use is slightly lighter and more fragrant (personal taste preference)

Spicy Miso Tori-Tonkotsu with Soup Ramen @ RM 28.80. Love the broth here, as it is slightly thick, pack with flavour and give you an instant punch of spicy yet it dissapear quite fast too. Great stuff.

yakitori fukuda (19)

Iberico Pork & Chicken Spicy Chanko Nabe with Chicken White Rich Soup (Sumo Hot Pot) @ RM 88.80 is quite interesting. Never know that Japanese version of hotpot will be in this format, as I always thought of shabu shabu or the smaller pot shabu. This is the bigger version and it is pack with Iberico Pork, Chicken Meat, Chicken Meat Ball, Mushroom, Enoki, Carrot, Cabbage .

Iberico pork balls, soft, tender and juicy. Punch with a hint of ginger too.

Eringi Mushroom with Foie Gras is grill to perfection. It grill to a thin crust layer on the outer of the skin that just crack slightly in your mouth yet the center is cook to medium that near melts in your mouth. The salt and charred taste make it a perfect piece not to be missed.  RM 36.80

This is What we are here for actually. Was told that they are quite well know for their Grilled Skewers and I must say, top notch!
