Sashimi, Grilled Squid and Yakitori

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

Some readers have told us that the food we feature on this blog all get a good review from us. We would like to clarify that this is because food that is below standard will not make it onto this blog. We will only blog about GOOD food!!

anonymous,

I am wondering have u ever go to school or attended any college or uni? If you have not I have nothing much to say. How can a person consume notes and coins ? You must be out of ur mind or maybe u are too "Money Face". If you can eat coins, I welcome you to my house and I will feed you with my antique collection coins. Maybe it just taste better than the coins that daily u are eating. This blog is about food, so now I am offering a good food to you. If interested leave a msg or phone number here. I will call u and we can arrange a meeting for eating coins and notes. I will also called up THE STAR publisher to take a photo on how u eat those coins and maybe one day u will become famous and have to chances to go overseas to demo. Maybe the London Royal Circus will invite u to join them. Hehehe ......

How can you be rich enough to have antique coins when your mom is so stupid to cane you for not eating bird's nest. I think you are a big phony lansi fool. You said you will treat us food, ok leave your number and we will call you ok?
We shall see if you have enough standard to eat at the same table as us.
And you asked how can someone consume notes and coins? We thought it was possible for you, if it is possible for a mom to cane her retarded son for not eating bird's nest.
Either that, or your mom is as retarded as you.

U r right! the mummy boy is really retarded! I guess anyone reads these comments will know who is the bloody 'money face'. Did I say I can eat coins? That's what u learned from your univ? Creating nonsense? Enough, maybe u r really rich, don't have to let us know what antique u have in your house, and don't let people eat them, your mom will cane u.
I think London Royal Circus will have more interests to show a woman caning a retarded boy for not eating bird's nest just like a trainer canning a lion for not jumping through the hoop.

Anonymous,

Is so sad to see that u are so un-educated. Like to greets ppl's mom, maybe when u are small u dont have ur parents to teach you. I dont blame you for that. PPL like you, what can we say more "Bo Ka Si", "Mei Jia Jiao" or dont have family education. What is wrong with mother caning her son?? Is for her son own good okay ?? As I mention earlier, maybe u dont have parents so u will not understand. If u want to know I am kind enough to take u as my god Son. hahaha .. Call "papa". Why dont u leave ur phone number instead of asking me to leave my phone number?? If you really wanna meet me just come to Jalan Alor or PUDU. there are lots of nice food over there. I am not sure whether I have to same standard to sit with the same table with you, because i dont know ur standard. But I am sure if you are looking for trouble, I am standard enough to handle you. I am not looking for trouble around here, Just that i dont like ppl to greet other's mom. Try me if u dare.

Before I go offline, I had a question for you. Which Orphanage are u from?? i will make some donation to your Ophanage. Pls ignore my last post, I am too aggresive and should hurt an orphan like you. Anyway, I really feel sorry for you, if there is anything i can help like me know. At least I can get u a proper name, so u dont have to use anonymous anymore. Anyone have any idea what should we name this orphan ??

I got no problem with mother caning retarded son, so that they will eat more bird's nest. Just like I agree with the trainer caning a lion, for the lion's good, otherwise will be killed.
B4 u get people a name, make sure u have 1 as well... shit... really retarded... richer than you said? Rich in what? Richer shit in the brain than you said?

Haha ... Richer than you is just an nick name okay. At least better than some uneducated fellow who uses Anonymous as nick name. Or maybe you dont have name at all since u got no parents. I am sorry to say that but that is the fact. Seems that u like to address ppl as retarded, whats wrong with you ? You yourself is retarded ? I would recommend a song that suits u, that is "Lets get retarded" from black eye pea. Hope u like it cos u always say ppl retarded and maybe ur self is retarded. If i am retarded whats wrong with that, u look down on retarded person ? Are they not human? u got no respect for retarded person and no moral at all. Ppl like you living in this society is really "sampah", rubbish. Richer shit in the brain ? what does it mean ? You never attended a bio or sc class is it ?? One last advice, Pls do not look down on retarded person or any disable ppl. Hope u learn ur lesson. Well, one more thing to update, anonymous is interelated to Makan Kings, Maybe they are the same ppl. Why?? becos their IP address is the same. Come on, show ur self anonymous.

who is richer than you to call others uneducated when he cant even speak proper english? What do you mean by greeting your mom? Do you even know what the word "greet" means? Check a dictionary; or maybe you're too scared because your mom will cane you? There's nothing wrong with a mother caning her son, but caning a boy for not eating bird's nest soup everyday is stupid and can be considered as child abuse. You should alert the authorities about your mom and they will institutionalise her. Or if you're too scared to do that, I will help you to do it. And what do you mean by makankings and me having the same IP? We don't even know who are the makankings. It seems to me that with every comment you post, you reinforce the obvious fact that you and probably everyone within your gene pool is retarded.

And before I logoff I must tell you something. You are stupid enough to think that a person in an orphanage would have the resources to read blogs online and post comments. Further proof of your retardedness. And no we do not look down on retarded people, we only look down on people with nicknames as "richer than you"
You may be rich in material possessions, but you definitely live in abject poverty when it comes to intelligence.

Haha , why a person in an orphanage cannot have access to internet ?? Tell me why ?? you are so fucking stoopid until ur mum wont recognise u. U say u didnt look down on retarded person, but actually u did, cos u are meaning that orphanage cannot have internet? Even if u have mother i am sure that her's cibai is "chao" adnd very smelly one, only that can born a son like u with bad mouth and smelly mouth. Buy her some Dettol or any anti-bac gel to wash okay ???? Maybe u are not orphan but i can conclude that u really "Mo Kao Yeong" lack of education. U dare to say u already have a degree by now in ur hands ?? If u have, I will give u anything that u want. prove it to me. U are still in University, I knew that, and i wonder why the university will accept such a student like you. Now what u should do is to manner. If u want i can give free lesson, come to jalan alor anytime. If ur mum is lack of spanking, bring her around. i will ensure someone will take care of it. If you think u are so great come and meet me. My gene poor ?? Are u sure ?? Ur mum tried B4 ar ?? haha ...... If your mum tried b4, u can say this to the public, if not keep ur smelly mouth shut and dont talk anymore.

To Mr HBong,

Why i dare not call you ? I hope u will pass me the stupid anonymous hp no. Of course u can give him my number as well. I am around jalan alor all the time, where u from. I will give u a call later. Or maybe u can schedule a meeting, i really would like to meet the famous Anonymous who have the smelly mouth as smelly as her mum's XXX.

You say that u are not close with makan kings, okay. Fine. One more thing, do u know what is IP?? read more books, any books especially moral books suits u. Or maybe primary school books also can. depents on u la. I also hope one day u will become a useful ppl. Rubbish ppl like you that did not commit anything to the society is worse than a retarded person. What i can say about u is that u are sooooo STUPID, how can a retarded person know how to "shoot back" a stupid PPL like u. I am not looking down on them, just use our common sense and think, do u every see a retarded person sitting infront of computer writing and reading comments? Try to use ur brain to think la.......anonymous.

Hi all,

Very sad to see what is happening to our blog. We hope this arguing to stop. This blog is for us to share our eating experience. Not a place to start a fight.
We would also like to clarify that we are in no way connected with anonymous and richer than you.

Hahaha , I am glad that anonymous post his last comment. I can have a peace of mind after that. Thanks for providing information of different support association. You really have u time to find all this info. But let me tell u, All the info that u provide, u can save it for ur own used. For protection of children, u need it more than me as we can see that u are childish. You are still small dude, ur pubic hair havent even grow full u dare to talk to limpeh ? Go to them anonymous if you have any problem, because since is ur last post i am unable to give u anymore support and advice. As for Mental Health association, i will write down the info, maybe one day i will need it. For the time being u are the one who needs more than me. U are mentally "cacat", always think that people are retarded and have no sympathy for retarded person and orphanage like you. Look down on them, have the thinking of orphanage does not have internet access. What generation u are living in ??? You need some advice and counseling, i personally do not blame you on that, maybe u have some bad experience in your childhood and causes "shadow" in ur current life. Go to see them and i am sure that they will help you. As for Royal London Circus, who will be more suitable, the readers will know, u can eat coins and notes, how amazing ? Maybe u can bring along ur mum and show to them ur mum smelly "lala". But maybe ur mum will have to go overseas, cos u know our country doesnt allow any x-rated show. Maybe u can also consult doctor why u have bad mouth, a few specialist can be found in Pantai Medical Center and Gleneagles. If you think that doenst help and u need spiritual cure, try to go look for help in temple. Or u can also go www.guanyimma.com print out the "Fu" or "Fish" no 9 and 12.
Hope the info help u, is for ur own good la fren. I am not looking for trouble or intend to argue with you, is just that u started to point the gun at me, and i have to fight back. Some more u always mention ppl's mum. Since is ur last post i hope that u can start a new life and be a good and useful ppl for this society. I still treat u as fren, come to me if u have any problem.

Makan Kings,

We are not starting a fight, dont worry. We just write down our comment for other party. hehe.. He thinks that i am cocky and i thinks that he is very "Kam Lan". If someone started to point a gun at u, will u fight back or u will wait to die ?? Hope u understand. Since this blog is about nice food, I would like to introduce nice food to you. Have u tried b4 Jalan Alor Roast Chicken Wings?? If you have not, try it. You wont regret. Is located in the last coffee shop in Jalan alor. Hope that will help u in ur food blogging. Thanks

acrix,

Firstly, thanks for visiting the site! Welcome!!

We do not post prices here. This has been our policy since the page started. We do of course answer your questions in the comments if we do have the answers. This meal cost about RM250++.

We will consider posting up prices. The problem being we will have to keep receipts and some places do not even give receipts. We do not want to have a price for one place and not the other. If it was to be done it would have to be done for everything.

Cheers
