Went to Kiku Zakura the other day. It is located in Berjaya Times Square. Ordered some sashimi, grilled squid and yakitori. Only a small meal but a very beautifully presented and delicious meal! YUMZ...
First of all, the sashimi 'boat'. Boat because it is served in a wooden serving dish resembling a boat. The sashimi was sitting on a bed of shredded radish and was accompanied by a cucumber bowl of fish roe and some wasabi. The sashimi includes fish such as salmon, butter fish, yellowtail, tuna, octopus and squid.
This is the closeup picture of some of the sashimi. All the ingredients used were very fresh. The whole thing looked beautiful and tasted as good as it looked. The salmon, butter fish and squid were the most notable. The squid were rolled with some seaweed. Later found that the bed of shredded radish was actually ALOT of raddish. Dont think that even a horse can finish that much shredded radish!!!!
The picture above is of the grilled squid and yakitori. Ordered two sets of each. A set of grilled squid comprised one whole squid grilled with some japanese sweet sauce. A set of yakitori included two sticks of chicken (sort of a japanese satay) also grilled with the same sweet sauce.
A closeup of the squid. The squid was grilled to perfection. It had the perfect bite the perfect amount of the sweet sauce. This is one nice dish to just chew!! Makan Kings recommends that one orders some sake or beer to have with this!!
This picture is a closeup of the yakitori. Again it was grilled to perfection and the sweet sauce was very good!! Can be eaten on its own or add some chilli powder to it. Also recommended to eat with sake or beer!!
Makan Kings rating = 7 out of 10
