Kimi-Ya, Jalan Klang Lama, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

"You are in for a treat!” – said my friend after she knew that she got promoted. Of course I was more than excited to accept this invitation and after discussing, we decided to go to Kimi-Ya to relax and enjoy the essence of authentic Japanese cuisine. Why Kimi-Ya? You may ask. The restaurant is a casual dining which serves premium high-quality foods yet at affordable price. The restaurant features a relaxed and posh dining space including private rooms for diners. We also need to take advantage of our ELITE Membership as we are entitled to redeem signature dishes for free at this restaurant. We could not wait to savour the best dishes here.

The sashimi was presented simply yet sophisticatedly on a bed of ice as the meals here are demonstrations of why less is more.

We chose a seat at the sushi counter as it would be more exciting to see how the dish was prepared. Fresh pieces of sashimi lied up nicely right in front of our eyes. We were in awe to know the fish were air-flown all the way from Hokkaido, Japan to KIMI-YA. In the blink of an eye, the teppanyaki chef masterfully handled 7 types of seasonal sashimi skillfully and had such smooth cuts that I could literally feel how soft they were just by watching. The sashimi was presented simply yet sophisticatedly on a bed of ice as the meals here are demonstrations of why less is more. I quickly took the first bite as it was way too tempting.

The amaebi prawns captured my heart with its buttery, creamy texture and the melt-in-the-mouth feeling.

One tip to eat sashimi is you should eat from lean to fatty ones as the taste will be stronger after each bite. My first bite was white Bluefin tuna which was sweet and cooling. I continued to savour the kampachi, its sweetness and smoothness are what you would dream for. The Otoro of course did not let us down with its satisfactory fatness. Next came octopus which was crunchy with a mix of briny and sweet taste. Finally were my three favorite sashimi of the day – Amaebi prawns, scallop and salmon! The amaebi prawns captured my heart with its buttery, creamy texture and the melt-in-the-mouth feeling. The scallop was so soft and smooth like velvet that I 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.

We were hypnotized by the gorgeous marbling on the beef and its delicious pink flesh.

Right after we thought we had the best of all, we quickly fell in love with the next dish which was a sizzling hot dish of A5 Wagyu steak – which is the highest quality grade given only to the finest beef! This A5 Wagyu beef was imported from Yamagata – the Japanese renowned area for the best Wagyu. We looked at each other in mere excitement – these pieces of Wagyu beef looked too appetizing! We were hypnotized by the gorgeous marbling on the beef and its delicious pink flesh. Not to mention its smell was so aromatic and delectable that could trigger your involuntary salivation in just a few seconds.

The Wagyu's intense beefiness and richness were definitely for those who seek decadence and over-the-top presentation.

The sizzling sound also made my mouth water. The Wagyu beef had such an amazingly palatable fatness and sweetness which quickly dissolved in my mouth and filled my heart with love. Its intense beefiness and richness were definitely for those who seek decadence and over-the-top presentation. What I like as well were the crunchy vegetables served along to reduce the greasiness the dish might have. This dish is the real winner of taste and value-for-money department. Blended perfectly in a non-powering manner.


III/ Yaki Taraba Kani (300g) (RM178++)

The Alaskan King Crab is truly a gift from the ocean. Its mild taste was a refreshing and warm-hearting treat for us all.

The dish made its way to our table with an irresistible sweet and briny smell. Pieces of Alaskan King crab legs lied neatly atop some leaves and were garnished with nice petals. The crab will be cooked to perfection to maintain its high-quality protein as well as the sweet flavor which made it the king of all crabs. We were thrilled to savour this delicacy and were all filled with whimsical delights. The Alaskan King Crab is truly a gift from the ocean. Its mild taste was a refreshing and warm-hearting treat for us all. Its succulent meat was flavorful, soft and juicy. No wonder why it is the most highly sought-after crab in the world!

Ishin Japanese Dining, Jalan Klang Lama, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

To be honest, I am in love with Japan’s wonderful cuisine and that goes without saying to most of my friends as well. Last weekend, I was enthusiastic to, again, indulge myself in a Japanese gastronomical delight. Ishin Japanese Dining, located along Old Klang Road, was my choice this time. The restaurant, for 2 years consecutive of 2016 and 2017, won the Travellers’ Choice of TripAdvisor for its authentic Japanese cuisine and superb service.

The sushi counter at the first floor is where you can watch the performance artistry of the chefs.

Private rooms are available upstairs for group gatherings, one of which overlooks the KL traffic which left us impressed. The friendly staff directed us to a seat right at the sushi counter at the first floor to watch the performance artistry of the chefs who masterfully handles the finest cuts of the food. Who would not enjoy that?

I/ Chef Special Sashimi (RM 160)

Click here to view image
Chef’s Special Sashimi is a chef selection of 7 kinds of freshest and finest air-flown seasonal sashimi from Japan’s famous Tsukiji market.

Gorgeous pieces of seafood lined up beautifully at the counter immediately whetted our appetite. We embarked on calling our first dish – the Chef Special Sashimi. It is a chef selection of 7 kinds of freshest and finest air-flown seasonal sashimi from Japan’s famous Tsukiji market. The chef began to amaze us with the beautiful kinki or thornhead fish which is a rare fish that tastes best during winter – this time of the year in Japan (well, not in Malaysia of course) as it is akin to the fat part “chu-toro” of tuna. Every little bone was meticulously taken from the piece of fish and its bone was used as a part of the dish decoration.

You would definitely never forget the rich and creaminess of the salmon belly and the melt-in-the-mouth taste of emaebi.

7 kinds of sashimi all came reclined seductively on a bed of ice with a stunning ice sphere. The decoration may pause you for a while to snap a few shots before you can continue to savour this delicacy. I started with the kikin as the chef’s introduction was way too impressive. It did not let me down at all as its slight sweet taste blended so well with the considered “the best wasabi in Japan” by the chef. Next came kampachi, shimaaji and scallop which were all so fresh and smooth that you might literally find yourself kissing the sea for a moment. I ended up with the palate-pleasing amaebi and salmon belly. If you are a true Japanese cuisine fan, you would definitely never forget the rich and creaminess of the salmon belly and the melt-in-the-mouth taste of emaebi. The dish is just splendid!

2.  Sushi Deluxe (RM 93)
As posh and luxurious as it sounds, the dish came out with 8 chef-selected kinds of seasonal sushi. With his 23-year experience, head chef William, mastered his skills and made 8 beautiful pieces of sushi including kikin, tuna, butterfish, salmon roe, sea urchin, sweet prawns, salmon belly and egg sushi in just the blink of an eye.

Click here to view image
Within a few minutes, a visual-appealing dish appeared right in front of us that quickly triggered our salivation.

Some sushi were garnished with interesting toppings such as the kikin sushi paired with white radish sprouts which brought a slight hint of pleasant spiciness. The butterfish with its mesmerizing pink flesh was one decked with the luxurious black caviar and one with kinome leaf. Its mild pepper-mint-lime taste tingled my tongue and really enhanced the flavor of the soft and fresh butterfish.

The salmon was no doubt one of my favorites as its flavor matched well with the tangy yuzu (a Japanese citrus fruit) skin atop. How about the salmon roe and sea urchin? The roe will pop in your mouth with its briny yet sweet coastal taste. The sea urchin, as always, made me melted in heaven. Its mildly nutty taste and custard-like texture was too fascinating that I could not stop myself from admiring. Served with freshly grated wasabi, the dish will make you relish everything about it!

3.  Wagyu Stone Grill (RM 250)

Click here to view image
Stunning pieces of A5 Wagyu beef were ready to be grilled by the staff.

As we had pampered ourselves with some gifts of the ocean, we decided it was time to get our tummy warm. Of course, the best choice is to indulge ourselves in the Wagyu Stone Grill. 100 gram of stunning Wagyu beef was presented nicely next to a Stone grill set. The A5 Wagyu beef (the highest quality) pleased our eyes with its flawless and gorgeous marbling. The chef continued to wow us with another secret – all the vein was cut off to reserve the smoothest texture of the beef which means only 50% of the meat is used for the best quality.

Click here to view image
The rich, fat-friendly and savory Wagyu beef blew us away with its juiciness, softness and smoothness.

The beef, interestingly, will be cooked at the table directly with the help from the restaurant’s staff. As the marvelous Wagyu was put on the hot stone, its sizzling sounds were so satisfying that we could not keep ourselves from silently screaming in excitement. The premium quality beef of course did not let us down at any point. It offered the best of both worlds for its heavenly delicious taste. The rich, fat-friendly and savory Wagyu beef blew us away with its juiciness, softness and smoothness. It will entice you to take another bite! The dish totally blew us away!

The Steakhouse, Changkat Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Who would ever feel happy getting stuck in the rain? I would because I had such a great experience getting stuck in a heavy rain last week in the busy street Changkat Bukit Bintang. As the rain was lashing, it somehow brought my friends and me to The Steakhouse – a 40-seater steak joint located along this notable street and adjacent to The Whisky Bar. The staff were friendly and the restaurant’s warm and lush interior quickly caught my attention so we decided to have our dinner in this cozy and intimate ambiance. With our ELITE Membership, we can redeem free signature dishes here, so why not? Of course, we had a lot of expectation as well because The Steakhouse is known as the true heaven for beef lovers.

The lush interior created a warm and cozy ambiance for the restaurant.

1/ Josper Charcoal Grilled Premium Grass Fed Rib Eye (RM 139)

Click here to view image
High-quality grass-fed rib eye was set nicely along with garlic mashed potato, onion rings and black pepper sauce.

Rib eye is the juiciest and most flavorful steak among all and it is definitely the choice of real steak aficionados. The rib eye here is 100% grass-fed imported from Australia which means it is high-quality meat with amazingly fat marbling. The dish looked uncomplicated yet enough to whet our appetite. On a bed of sautéed vegetable and next to creamy mashed potato was the steak with some golden crispy onion rings atop. The rib eye was smoky as it was grilled using the Josper Oven – which you will not easily see in many restaurants in KL. The charcoal heat from the oven will make the steak juicy and create impeccable char along with caramelized crust, striated texture.

Click here to view image
The striated texture of the premium rib eye steak was mesmerizing

Fat outside yet so tender inside, the steak’s flavor, tenderness and juiciness blended well together in a combination equaled by no other meat. I took a bite into the sautéed vegetables, they were quite crunchy and palatable. You can choose up to 4 different types of potato like wedges, fries, mashed potato or baked potato. And don’t be overwhelmed yet because there are a lot more! The dish will be served along with 5 types of salt including garden salt, chili salt, garlic salt, sea salt and onion salt and 3 types of mustard which are Dijon – salty, Horseradish – spicy and sour, and Medium-hot mustard – sour and bitter. I would recommend you to try the Horseradish mustard which has a comfortable hint of spiciness and it blends well with the steak.

2. BBQ Short Ribs (RM 129)

Click here to view image
Flavorful and tender, this BBQ Short Ribs fulfilled my gustatory dream!

Here comes my favorite dish of the day – the BBQ Short Ribs! Beef short ribs are often-overlooked cuts yet I am truly interested in it, simply because it has the best of both worlds – beautiful marbling of rib steaks and a deep beefy flavor of chuck roast. A real indulgent treat for anyone who loves beef. As disclosed by the staff, the ribs were cooked using sous-vide technique to create the perfect texture. The magic of sous-vide is that it transformed a tough, rugged texture of short ribs into fork-tender meat. I have to say that the short ribs at The Steakhouse will melt the heart of any beef lovers for its irresistible tenderness and meaty texture.

The BBQ Short Ribs’ beautiful pink flesh was mesmerizing.

I could not take my eyes off this enthralling piece especially when I cut through it! Its pink flesh was so mesmerizing that I couldn’t stop admiring. Every shred of the beef will melt in your mouth and you would not be able to do it without closing your eyes in mere satisfaction. The beef was one of the most delicious morsels given to me. It is the fulfillment of my gustatory dream!

3. Beef Bourguignon (RM 108)

Click here to view image
The rich-flavored beef matched well with the smooth and fresh Fettuccine pasta.

We ended with a hearty French comfort food which is the Beef Bourguignon. Put nicely in a small pot, the beef was served with Fettuccine – a type of pasta popular in Roman and Tuscan cuisine. I was excited to know the scrumptious beef belly was marinated for one night with liquid seasoning. Red wine and gin were added to bring a deep and rich flavor taste for the beef. I could not wait any further but quickly savored this delicacy. The cubes of beef mingled with carrots, Cipollini onions, bread and button mushroom in a rich and savory stock. This flavorful sauce blended so well with the appetizing pasta which was cooked to perfection. I love how fresh and smooth the pasta was! Don’t hesitate to give the Cipollini onion a bite as its tangy, sweet and mild flavor will comfortably linger in your mouth for a while. This rustic peasant-style yet hearty French dish won my heart. It is a truly heart-warming dish for a rainy day.

If you would love to dine at The Steakhouse, please notice that the restaurants are often filled with crowds every day. You can reserve a table in advance here.

Of course, we would want you to get free signature dishes like how we did. You can check out information about the ELITE Membership here.

Cava, Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

What’s it like to taste the signature dishes of Cava along Jalan Bangkung, Bangsar? We were recommended to try out Cava and as a result, we came with expectation to try their well-known authentic Spanish and Mediterranean cuisine. How did it turn out? We had more surprises than what we expected!

Located along Jalan Bangkung which is well-known for its lines of notable restaurants, Cava’s exterior setting of stone walls and barrels had immediately drifted us to a cozy Spanish ambiance. The restaurant has a lush interior – candlelit chandeliers illuminating dim yellow light which matches well with the navy-blue glasses and red curtains.  

1. Specialty Arroz Negro Paella    (RM54++)

Prawns lined in a circle with their tails centralized towards a good dose of mayonnaise at the center.

The first and also the most eye-catching signature dish for us was the “Specialty Arroz Negro Paella” (my heart actually danced for a second when the dish was brought out). We were all allured by its decoration – on top of the paella, prawns lined in a circle with their tails centralized towards a good dose of mayonnaise at the center – amazing! Not sure if we were too imaginative but it looked like a blossom (a rose, maybe?). A fair amount of squid ink was used to make the black paella which made a huge contrast with theprawns. The Spanish rice soaked up an oceanic flavor from the prawns. No one would want to miss the mild briny flavor of the sea which came from the fresh squid and prawns combined together in one dish. The paella is also made with garlic aioli which helps getting rid of the fishy flavor the dish might have.

The prawns are fresh-catch as your palate will instantly get a feeling of how tender and juicy it is right at the first bite. Give it a try by dipping the prawns into the spicy hot sauce that comes along. To be fair, it might be a bit too spicy but we really love its unique flavor and the heat that heightened our appetite.

2. Spaghetti Aglio Olio Pulpo a la Gallega    (RM38++)

The tangy yet juicy Spanish octopus tentacles went extremely well with the springy and smooth spaghetti was really soul-satisfying.

Voila! This simple dish quickly became my favorite with merely one bit. The spaghetti appeared as elegant as you can find in many dishes here. To be honest, we did not have high expectation towards it at first due to its not-so-fancy-looking but we were so wrong. Why so? The tangy yet juicy Spanish octopus tentacles went extremely well with the springy and smooth spaghetti was really soul-satisfying. The aglio olio was sprinkled with paprika which gave a lingering mild spicy flavor. It would be a loss if the paprika was not presented. Imagine you are having a bit of spice mixing with the gummy and stretchy texture of the tentacles in the mouth. Hmm…  

Spaghetti Aglio Olio Pulpo a la Gallega is a true burst! I would not add any additional flavor to the dish as it is already extraordinary and unforgettable. The spaghetti went crazily fast into our mouths and not a speck of things left behind.

3. Baked Suckling Lamb   (RM168++)

The lamb had a satisfying airy light crisp skin.

And finally, all lamb appreciators should keep yourselves calm as here comes the suckling lamb. Presented simply, the dish amazed us (we all wowed) as it was so enormous and it came along with such mouth-watering scent. What a sumptuous feast! The first cut into the lamb was delightful as we all agreed the lamb had a satisfying airy light crisp skin. A tip for anyone who wants to have an enjoyable first cut: start from the edges first as it would come with more meat! About the meat itself? I personally would love it more if the meat was a bit tenderer. Still, the lamb’s juiciness and richness made it scrumptious and irresistible!

What I would love more is a bit of bursting flavor, which would make it even more outstanding. We cannot but notice some creamy mashed potato that radiating an enchanting aroma. We believed the potato was coupled with the flavorful gravy from the lamb juice which made it more flavorsome. The sides did not let us down either. Overall, the dish itself could do all the talking! 

If you love to pay Cava a visit and try these significant dishes, please notice that you can always save your time waiting by make a reservation here.

And good news for all food lovers out here, all of the signature dishes listed above are now available to be redeemed on TABLEAPP ELITE. (and yay, who would not love free food?).
