Yutaka @ Solaris Mont Kiara

Supplying a succulent reason to return to the now-neglected Solaris Mont Kiara, Yutaka is one of this neighborhood's nicest new eateries.

Start with sushi: A RM110+ chef's selection affords customers a dozen pieces of nigiri sushi ...

... with thick, luscious cuts of seafood draped over rice ...

... potentially including the likes of tuna belly, shrimp, boiled sea eel, amberjack ...

... salmon belly, salmon roe, scallops & whatever else the chef feels is freshest.

Yutaka isn't a busy outlet so far; seafood shipments come in only once a week, on Tuesdays.

No man lives on sushi alone; order the fried lotus roots with stinky-sticky natto soybeans too.

Pork pops up on the menu as well, skewered with onions for a toothsome treat.

Excellent miso soup comes in various varieties here, including with clams or scallops.

Sake or wine? Picking a poison proves to be pure pleasure.

Yutaka opens daily for both lunch & dinner.

    1. Ulric: hope you enjoy it! unfortunately this wouldn't be on my list of top ten japanese restaurants in the klang valley, but it'd surely be in the top fifty (not bad, considering there are nearly 200 japanese eateries listed on this blog) =)

    3. Ulric: yeah, it's subjective of course, but ichiro's most likely top fifteen overall and top ten in terms of sushi :D

    1. TNG: heheh, i think you've probably visited at least one-third of my personal top 10, but maybe if you start with Kame Sushi at sri hartamas, you can work your way through there and a few other outlets and move on to Yutaka eventually! :D

  3. Solaris Mont Kiara is certainly quite quiet these days...not really been visiting that area except when we break at 7-11 there during our morning runs.

    I noted pork on the menu! I have a reason to visit Yutaka...and Solaris Mont Kiara.

    1. Missyblurkit: yeah, I do miss some of the nice old outlets that opened and then closed at Solaris mont kiara ... like Providore, Schokolart and Dubrovnik. And now most folks go to Solaris Dutamas for their cafes, so there's rarely buzz about Solaris mont kiara. I quite like Yutaka though, and I think it's one of the best Japanese eateries in the mont kiara area =)
