Sion Dining & Bar
Quietly tucked away in Ara Damansara, Sion Dining and Bar is the prefect place for those who are looking for a quiet dining. The restaurant was headed by the Japanese chef Masamichi Shiomi who was originally born in Kyoto and raised in Osaka. Sion serves Iberico pork – Iberico is prized on its unique taste created in part by the aroma of sweet acorns that the pigs feed on. One of the most loved dishes by patrons is the Iberico Pork Hamburger – this 280g juicy pork patty comes with a tangy-sweet salsa sauce and tomatoes.
