Kissaten @ Jaya One

"Next week's food review's gonna be a Kissaten. They have very interesting menu. You wouldn't wanna miss that."

The moment he said that, expectations were set. And I was far from being disappointed, be it the quantity, quality or variety.

It was the largest group gathering we had thus far - A total of 8 food reviewers including Timmo and photographer AndyKho.

I had bitter gourd + cucumber fresh juice (RM 8.90). I've always hated bitter gourd but I tend to be a lil adventurous once in a while. It didn't taste that bad. The cucumber actually covered the strong bitter taste of the bitter gourd so it's all good.

Will I come back for this? Yes, definitely.

Random pic of Sarah & I. Rooting for her to be in FHM GND 2011/12 yo!

The salmon salad (RM 18.90) was served in a relatively large portion with generous helpings of fresh salmon and greens.

Next came everyone's favourite - Sahshimi Moriawase (RM 68.90). I'm not an expert when it comes to dish like this because I started appreciating them only recently but here's my verdict.

Salmon sahshimi - Very fresh
The folded orange thingy on the lower right of the plate - SUPERB!
The whitish thingy on the top right of the plate (which I assume it was scallops) - Yummy!
Fresh prawns - I feel a bit geli eating them :|

Will I come back for this? Not really, unless I have someone who's willing to finish the prawns.

Tsukune Teriyaki With Eggyolk Sauce (RM 8.90) is a MUST-TRY seriously. Minced pork in satay sticks covered with raw eggyolk and teriyaki sauce. Hint: Smashed the yolk and dip it before eating it.

It's far from gross.

Will I come back for this? DEFINITELY!

Crunchy Stewed Pork Slice (RM 6.90) is filled with nothing but pork and COLLAGEN omgggg! Most of us girls were so grossed out by the look of it we didn't really dare to touch it so guess who wiped it clean?

Who was the last person in the group who actually needed collagen wth!

Will I come back for this? Now that I know it's rich in collagen? OF COURSE! -_-"

Teppan Mushroom Burger Steak (RM 18.90) is actually pretty similar to the dish above. Similar raw ingredients (just the meat), different portion and size and sides. A recommended dish as well!

The pork steak is far from tough and rubbery or any of that sort.

Will I come back for this? DEFINITELY!

Tonkotsu Ramen (RM 16.90) was HUGE we couldn't finish it. Oh wait, Timmo did. He's always the 'rubbish bin' of the group =P

It was alright, nothing spectacular. Tasted like maggie mee after a few mouthfuls.

Will I come back for this? Nope.

Salmon Steak (RM 17.90)

I'm a big fish eater so .. what more can I say? I think I gobbled more than half of the salmon.

Mushroom Onsen Tamago Spaghetti (RM 14.90).

Me is also a huge pasta fan so I was busy eating this as well. Hehehe.

Salmon Steak Spaghetti (RM 19.90).

A combination of my two favourites!! Can't get enough of them ~

Seafood Spaghetti With Tomato Sauce (RM 17.90).

More spaghetti and SEAFOOD for me to savour. Yum yummm ~

Will I come back for the salmon and/or spaghetti? Yes, I will :)

Teriyaki Chicken Onsen Tamago (RM 23.90) is one interesting dish none of us had came across. The yolk in the middle was supposed to be smashed and spread on the pizza but guess what, we took one slice each and had the yolk separately. HAHA.

So, now u know. Don't repeat our blunder lol.

Will I come back for this? Hmm .. Maybe not. The menu is too interesting this kinda dropped to the bottom of the list.

With Stephinie, gorgeous events emcee/host.

Chantelle's contesting for Miss International 2010 in a few days' time. All the best babe! Make Malaysia proud xoxo.

Ok, moving on to desserts:

Azuki Pancake (RM 4.90).

It was alright. Simple dish. Didn't stand out.

Yaki Gyoza (RM 8.90)

No comments on this. Very normal.

Top: Choco Pudding (RM 6.90)
Bottom: Cheese Cake (RM 6.90)

Being a die-hard chocolate fan (who gets acne from it T.T), no prize for guessing which is my favourite. The pudding tasted like a big block of soft chocolate wahhh seriously sinful can die.

I didn't touch the cheese cake cause I'm not a fan of dairy products.

Cheese Cake With Apple or Banana Filling I'm not sure which (RM 6.90)
Pumpkin Crean with Haagen Daaz Vanilla Ice cream (RM 12.90)
Caramel Pudding (RM 4.90)

I don't take cheese cake so the top one's out. The Caramel Pudding's a lil too sweet and the Pumpkin Cream was alright. The ice cream saved it hehe.

Group pic with the creative chef who plays mix-and-match in creating his wide variety of menu.

Upon leaving.

Overall verdict: Will definitely come back for more. Will drag Aaron there also although he doesn't like fusion :D

Darrenmagic said...

Looks great!
The group needs anymore eating member? XD
The only thing is the sashimi moriawase looks overcharged - quite a small plate isn't it?

My cravings for Japanese food just jumped to a whole new level.

Will definitely pop by this place on my next trip to KL.

Keep up with these awesome reviews. Yum yum!

darren: umm .. i think the picture doesn't do the sashimi moriawase justice. sorry. the portion's actually bigger than how it looked. but whether or not it's pricey for it's actual serving, i'm not too sure because i'm no regular hehe. are u a big fan?

anonymous: i think i know who u are lol. the next time u come kl we go ok :)
