1/ Get Gratified by The 7 Types Ume Sashimi Moriawase at Kimiya Old Klang Road
We were in awe to know the fish were air-flown all the way from Hokkaido, Japan to the restaurant. In the blink of an eye, the teppanyaki chef masterfully handled 7 types of seasonal sashimi skillfully Our three favorite types of sashimi of the day are Amaebi prawns, scallop and salmon! The amaebi prawns captured our hearts with its buttery, creamy texture and the melt-in-the-mouth feeling. The scallop was so soft and smooth like velvet that we would eat it over and over again. And the salmon was titillating with its subtle sweet and refreshing taste which equaled to no other fish.
