View Kikubari's Prawns In 2 Ways

The Prawn in 2 Ways is a must-try delight that clearly showcases Kikubaris advocate of cooking from nose to tail. After being deep-fried, the prawn heads are placed nicely on a bed of whipped roe, trout roe, prawn-infused cream and beautifully garnished with edible flowers and seaweed strips. The prawn heads are incredibly crispy yet not even a dry texture is found as the cream does an excellent job in keeping them moisturized. The prawn body is turned into an addictive indulgence – lobster roe “patty” deep-fried in Katsu style and stuffed inside a home-baked sandwich with cabbage-slaw and wasabi mayo. An innovative and luscious dish.

Fine strings of the heavenly delicious angel hair pasta are swirled skilfully and topped with uni, scallop, Arenkha roe, Hojiso and a trio of melt-in-the-mouth gifts of the sea – Amaebi, Botan Ebi and Moruno shrimp which exude sweetness into the pasta. On the side, the Tarabagni (king crab jelly) is a unique ingredient that jazzes up the dish with its sublime flavor. The dish is drizzled with the house secret truffle-konbu sauce which gave the pasta a subtle aroma while making it incredibly smooth.

The World Is Celebrating International Sushi Day and You Need To Know Why!

Click to read TABLEAPP Weekly Reads - The World Is Celebrating International Sushi Day and You Need To Know Why.

Did you know every year on the 18th of June, International Sushi Day is celebrated around the world? We bet some of you didn’t even realize that was a thing. The reason International Sushi Day was created is to solely eat and appreciate the amazing history of sushi.

But to be honest, who doesn’t like an excuse to revel in all kinds of lip-smacking sushi dishes? Definitely us, because we can’t wait for it!

How the Sushi Culture Started?

Click to read TABLEAPP Weekly Reads - The World Is Celebrating International Sushi Day and You Need To Know Why.

Isn’t it crazy how in today’s world, sushi is readily available in so many countries across the globe! From Asia, Europe, North America and even South America. What once used to be unique and exclusive to the Japanese has now evolved into an international love affair.

Click to read TABLEAPP Weekly Reads - The World Is Celebrating International Sushi Day and You Need To Know Why.

With that being said, let’s dig a little deeper to uncover how this global love affair started. In the early 17th century, a time where “Tokyo” was still known as “Edo”, lived a man named Matsumoto Yoshiichi – the person to be credited for popularizing the new type of “sushi” seasoned with vinegar (fish wrapped in seasoned rice).

However, it was only until the 19th century that a man by the name of Hanaya Yohei made the first sushi that we know today. An oblong-shaped piece of warm-seasoned rice topped with fresh fish.

As the time progresses, sushi continues to evolve and wherever it lands, local influences take over. For instance, in the United States, there are the California Roll and Boston Roll – both created to suit American’s taste buds and preferences.

Understanding the origin of sushi is fun, but do you know how to eat sushi the right way? Well, you can learn the correct way of enjoying sushi according to the world-renowned chef Nobuyuki “Nobu” Matsuhisa – the owner of 47 highly-regarded Nobu restaurants worldwide!

Rejuvenating Cocktails and Delights at Aviary Bar @ Hilton Kuala Lumpur

Aviary Bar, previously named Chambers Bar, has been well-known for being the home of the phenomenal tiki cocktail – the Jungle Bird. Situated at Hilton Kuala Lumpur, the softly-lit bar has an elegant curved wall that boasts a modern chic yet cozy atmosphere with skillful mixologists whip up colorful cocktails – a perfect haven for a snug gathering.

With an extensive menu of fine selections of international delights along with champagne, wine, hard liquor and hip, trendy cocktails,  Aviary Bar has won the hearts of foodies and cocktail enthusiasts alike. I was thrilled to have a catch up with my friends here last week and of course, I took this opportunity to find out the most-loved delicacies here! 


1/ Lamb Koftas + Original Jungle Bird 

View Lamb Koftas and Original Jungle Bird

I couldn’t refrain from the temptation to try the world-famous Original Jungle Bird cocktail. Curated back in the ’70s, this invention has helped put Malaysian cocktail culture on the world map and it is definitely something you would not want to miss out! The drink got my total attention as the liquor elegantly put inside the hollowed-out calamari was lit up, exuding an irresistible fragrance along with the aromatic pineapple slice perched on top. This to-die-for cocktail was incredibly rejuvenating and perfectly paired with the tantalizing Lamb Koftas with Tahini Dressing. The tender lamb meat went well with the nutty Tahini sauce, making it a pleasure in every bite.

2/ Spicy Falafel + Aviary Tales 

View Spicy Falafel Sliders and Aviary Tales

The Spicy Falafel + Aviary Tales is something you should keep an eye on! The chef’s signature Spicy Falafel excited my taste buds with a kick thanks to the chili hummus. Grainy and crispy on the outside yet soft and mushy on the inside, this delicacy had my heart skipped a beat! While the taste of the Spicy Falafel was still lingering, I took a sip of the Aviary Tales. Its delicate cucumber taste with a sour note from the lemon juice and the unique flavor from the pineapple juice was refreshing, lip-smackingly complemented the Spicy Falafel. Definitely a combination that never fails to impress.

 
 

3/ Prawn Tempura + Malaysian Mule

View This Prawn Tempura and Malaysian Mule

The final delight is equally impressive which features Prawn Tempura and Malaysian Mule cocktail. The Australian-imported freshwater prawns were coated in an ultralight batter which made them crispy and airy, not to mention their soul-satisfying sweetness. The signature cocktail Malaysian Mule was packed with flavors which mainly came from the fresh lemongrass and kaffir lime juice accompanied with a crisp taste and tangy aroma from the ginger beer. An incredible indulgence for a relaxing day!
