Ten @ Marc Service Residence

Returning to Ten's relocated outlet at Marc Residence. Earlier entry: March 20.

Ten's sashimi platter clocks in at RM180++, but with geoduck & tuna belly among the components, it's certainly not a ripoff.

The standard sushi selection's a little less pricey at RM80++ ...

... while a sushi-dominated omakase meal is available for about RM260++.


 Customers who order the omakase courses will sit at the counter & be served plates of delicate nibbles potentially topped with the likes of halibut & seared salmon.

Salmon sashimi & avocado roll, a rice-free one (RM45++), in lieu of a salad.

Our top recommendation at Ten: Unagi kabayaki with foie gras & Japanese sansyo pepper. The combo of eel & liver is executed exceptionally here. RM90++ for this.

Grilled silver cod marinated in saikyo miso with a hint of yuzu (RM75++). Moist & flavorful.

Looks nearly like beef, tastes nearly like the best kind of beef: Scorched medium-fatty tuna belly with sauteed spring onions & ikura soy sauce (RM90++).

Real beef shows up in the Wagyu-&-garlic fried rice (RM40++). Underwhelming, surprisingly.

Inaniwa udon, slippery & slurp-worthy, in a fine broth that matches very well with the noodles.


More soup to savor, of the miso variety, brings this meal to a close.

Sake to cool us down on a hot, humid night.

Ten serves cocktails with twists: Grapefruit Mojito & a blend of green tea with unidentified liquor.

    1. Ulric: yeah, both Ten and Sushi Hinata are probably more suitable for splurge-worthy occasions, and both have their own strengths =) oooh, kelana jaya! congratulations, and though i think traffic to and from that area seems terrible, i guess it'll be a good opportunity for you to further explore the eating places in kelana jaya, pj and sunway :D

  3. Wow, that sashimi platter looks incredibly delicious. A bit more of a convenient location for us city dwellers than in Publika.
