Taiko Sushi & Salad Bar is the recently born sister outlet of Ramen Taiko, both nestled inside the Mont Kiara Shoplex & both with self-explanatory names.
Clear differences separate the two: the ramen outlet serves pork, but not the sushi bar; the former feels warmly inviting, while the latter is brightly lit but sterile.
Entry on Ramen Taiko: January 30, 2012.
Offerings here should satisfy fans of fresh, leafy fare. The kanpachi carpaccio salad comprises as much lettuce, tomatoes & alfalfa sprouts as yellowtail.
Carb-fearers can choose a no-rice soft-shell crab maki, filled with eel & cucumber among others.
Lobster salad, a relative bargain for RM25. Not top-notch crustacean meat, but more than edible.
Rewarding ourselves with sea salt ice cream, pleasantly flavorsome.
Wasabi ice cream, packing a real punch. House-made? Not sure about that.
All in all, an OK addition to Mont Kiara's ocean of Japanese eateries.
