Kinme Sashimi & Grill Bar: Round Two. Earlier entry: August 1.
Good sashimi? Yep. These pictures probably tell the tale better than words can. But feel free to fill in the following blanks with glowing adjectives.
The chef's selection costs RM99 nett, comprising 10 choice cuts that could include fat-streaked tuna belly, plus Kinme's signature golden-eye snapper.
Other a la carte options: Sea urchin (RM60) & a triumvirate of salmon, belly & roe (RM32).
The second component of Kinme is the kushiyaki, a notch above most other outlets, as evidenced by ponzu chicken breast (RM4) & tsukune chicken meatball (RM4), both outstanding.
Terrific-tasting offal: Gizzard, heart & liver (RM3.50 each).
Skin & bones. Could munch on these all evening, & then some.
Kinme's desserts are a little less remarkable, but only relatively so. Many will still admire this bowl of white wine jelly with fruits & vanilla ice cream (RM10+).
Sweet soybean flour mochi with red beans (RM8), as pleasant a Japanese dessert as possible.
A 720-ml bottle of Kubota Senjyu sake peeks out of its ice-laden bucket.
