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.

Click here to view image
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!

The scallop was so fresh and smooth that you might literally find yourself kissing the sea for a moment.

 

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.

Some sushi were garnished with interesting toppings.

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.

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!

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.
