Suishin @ Solaris Mont Kiara, Kuala Lumpur

Click here for earlier entry on Suishin (April 12).

Grilled king crab leg with uni sauce. Over-the-top decadence. The crab would've been satisfyingly succulent on its own, but the sea urchin coating made this overpoweringly rich.

Oysters baked with cheese & crab sticks. Fresh-tasting and flavour-packed. We prefer our oysters raw, but a well-prepared recipe like this proves how versatile these mollusks can be.

Kobe beef tataki, costing RM130 for 100 grams. A hearty, lightly roasted serving, but it lacked the melt-in-the-mouth quality we tend to associate with premium meat.

Kisu karaage (deep-fried whiting) in amazu sauce. An addictive, sweet-&-sour snack, though the preparation kinda overwhelmed the fish's natural flavour.

Suishin Extreme Maki, comprising ebi, soft shell crab, tobiko, kani & avocado. No complaints; the rolls were generously stuffed, turning each mouthful into a delicious explosion of tastes and textures.

Foie gras teriyaki. Not quite up to mark; the liver was slightly over-seared, leaving it not as juicy as it ought to be. Also, the sauce was a bit too salty.

  1. looks good babes! i want:)

  2. Very few places do foie gras well; it's really disappointing to try foie gras in other places where they over sear the foie gras (a frequent occurrence) or the foie gras isn't of a good quality.

    I like the idea of pairing king crab claw with uni sauce. Sounds delicious. (can't see the uni sauce in the pic though...must be very light?)

  3. the similarities of jap names..ishin la..su+ishin = suishin la..i wonder whats nxt?

    seafood like crab n oysters arent the best remedy for open wounds like u..shud avoid.

  4. Extreme Maki? Maki has become "extreme" now? :P

  5. ciki: u'll forget all about japanese food when u're feasting on jambalaya and gumbo soon :D
    lemongrass: maybe we're all becoming more picky? i don't have foie gras that often these days, so when i do, i always hope it's perfect. oh, the uni sauce is that orange gunk on the crab meat ... it isn't the shell, it's the uni! :D
    joe: i guess ishin and suishin all mean something, right? but i have no idea what, heheh. oh ya, am avoiding shellfish now. this visit to suishin was actually a few weeks ago...
    lfb: am waiting for some restaurant to start serving "uncanny" maki or "astonishing" maki :D

  6. one thing i'll never learn is the japanese names of the dishes. I wouldn't know what is what if they do not have english translation. The food looks good!

  7. Ah.. just look at the pic and point what u want eiling.. lol!
    Solaris.. an almost forgotten place to me... no time to drive that far nowadays.. prefer to go nearby areas.

  8. eiling: oh ya, presentation-wise, i like how japanese food looks! :D
    leo: quite nearby if u use the penchala link ... except for that pesky toll charge! =)

  9. that's the thing that I hate.. paying toll :P
    but I have to admit.. the food looked unbelievably tasty!! I'm practically drooling already

  10. leo: ya, but it's the best way to get from the bandar utama area to mont kiara. =) yeah, the food here looks great, but in terms of taste, not as satisfying as expected...

  11. Ok..will pass. lotsa otr Jap plcs ard.

  12. tng: the menu here is quite vast though, so there's sure to be something for everyone :D
