Fukuda Yakitori Dining @ Desa Sri Hartamas

Hard-boiled chef Yasunori Doi rules the roost at Fukuda, a new yakitori restaurant that hatched this month in Desa Sri Hartamas, capturing full-house crowds with a far-reaching range of chicken recipes that seem well worth crowing about.

We had only mild expectations for Fukuda, so we were pleasantly surprised by how every skewer was terrifically executed; from the juicy thigh to the luscious tail, the heart to the liver to the meatball, each bite proved deliciously seasoned & cooked.

 It'd be fine to head here simply for yakitori, but the kitchen goes beyond skewers, making the most of chicken with soul-food creations like chicken terrine (RM25), boiled chicken skin with ponzu sauce (RM11), chicken cha-siu with boiled egg (RM15) ...

 ... as well as chicken leg confit (RM30; a tableau of tenderness), chicken karaage (RM18; a sacrament of succulence) & chicken liver stew (RM14; a canvas of creaminess). Sure, Fukuda also offers several non-chicken concoctions (Wagyu beef, prawn & salmon kushikatsu, costing RM25-RM35), but fowl play really is the way to go here.

 End with a dish that's a devilish delight: Steamed rice topped with sea urchin & onsen egg (RM27). Wine & sake are available.

    That's Japanese char siew - always see those in ramen or udon, so alluring. The last time I had those Japanese skewers was at some mall in Singapore a long time ago, very nice. Don't think they have those at our Japanese joints here. :(

    1. The Yum List: it's especially great to have Japanese outlets that specialise in specific fields (like yakitori, sushi, etc) and execute a smaller menu with a lot of expertise :)
