Yuzu recently unveiled its second branch, swooping into KLCC with the same hit-or-miss fare it has served at Mid Valley for the past several years.

Beware: the menu is vast, so over-ordering is definitely a danger.

Rice topped with yellowtail fish & egg in hot stone pot. A no-frills recipe that epitomizes the essence of comfort food. Piping-hot nutrition for rainy evenings.

Chicken thigh & avocado in olive oil sauce. Can anyone go wrong with a combo of tender meat with creamy avocado? Nope!

Yuzu Pizza, topped with flakes of unidentified fish & seaweed. This mix of tastes and textures wasn't a smashing success, with an unappealingly fishy flavor and excessively thick crust. The Italian outlets remain superior in the art of pizza-making.

Scallops & chopped veggies wrapped with thinly sliced fish, then baked with cream sauce. A savory pleasure, but the portion was puny enough to vanish in two bites.

Unagi with tofu salad. A hearty helping of fleshy, flavorsome eel helped to elevate what would otherwise have been a bland bowl of bean curd.

Bitter gourd salad. Not too bitter, mercifully, but not memorable either.

Wine is available, though the steep prices by the glass might conjure anxiety attacks.

Suria KLCC.

  1. Well, the wine's expensive but what about the food? :D

  2. michelle: might be safer to stick to bento sets! the food is not extravagantly priced, but the bill could still surpass RM100 per person =)

  3. Ooh. U tried bittergourd! :)
    Is this a small step to accustomise your tastebuds before we go to Fu Kua?

  4. J: hopefully the bittergourd recipes at fu Kua will be yummier than the ones here! I have a feeling, though, that I'll be dragging u later this month to a safer option, like pasta or pork ribs!!! :D

  5. bittergourd salad?!! yucks. I will avoid that dish totally... haha how could anyone think of bittergourd salad?!!

  6. eiling: heheh, i don't like bitter gourd either, but this one was OK. quite mild-tasting :D

  7. Oh! yuzu expanded to KLCC! Well, KLCC could do w more adventurous food options really.. * yawns * ;p
    Cant wait fr BEN to be open!

  8. tng: ya, the top floor of klcc is a bit more interesting these days ... got yuzu, bumbu desa, kiki by fong lye ... but everything is still 100 percent halal in this mall! :D
