It’s almost the end of March and today I’ll take you to one of the the Japanese Restaurants in Taman Desa, Koyaku Japanese Dining & Grill. I have been here a couple of times before for work-lunch purpose but this time, I went with my most favorite person on earth to enjoy the taste at our own pace.
They are offering variety of Japanese cuisine from sashimi to robatayaki(charcoal grill). We went here for dinner and we had the Choice Course Koyaku Dinner. It is a four course menu at the price of RM53 which is actually cheaper compared to the ala carte menu.
Before starting the course, they served some sort of amuse bouche which was a tuna salad. It was a nice gesture especially when the place is full.
For the first course, I had the Fresh Oyster with Sujiko while Azim had Soft Shell Crab Roll. The oyster, in drops of lemon juice, was fresh and tasted like the ocean which is always good. It also gave a bit of texture when combined with Sujiko. The salmon roe really did burst in my mouth and added more sea-taste to the oyster.
On to to the next course, we both ordered the same thing (because fate, lol) which was Grilled Scallop with Cheese. We impatiently took out the cheese-covered scallop out of the shell and the smell of the melted cheese lingered around – gave out an earthy feeling. The scallop was stuffed with enoki and onions before it was topped off with cheese and adequately baked.
After that, we got more excited for the main course. I had the Assorted Sashimi and Azim had Lamb Teppanyaki. The assorted Sashimi consisted of the basic – Sake(Norwegian salmon), Maguro(Fresh Tuna), White Tuna and Hamachi(Yellow Tail). The sashimi were fresh and as expected, mild with a clean taste. I managed to get a bit of lamb teppanyaki before Azim finished it and, once again, loving it. We also ordered the Chawan Mushi because I remembered how good it was the last time I was here. The ala carte Chawan Mushi was served in a hot mortar-like bowl and it kept the content hot until the last bit of it.
To end, we both had Macha Ice Cream because hello, fate again(!). It was a good end to our meal and kudos to the chef for serving it the right way. The ice cream glass was frozen to ensure the ice cream won’t simply melt.
I was pleased with the food served and certainly, will go for another round soon.
