Hacha Mecha @ TREC KL

Hacha Mecha is a stylish sanctum for modern Japanese fare with international inflections - for a distinctive dinner, start with the Chicken 'Sashimi' (RM25; crunchy-fried chicken skin & steamed meat with dashi dressing & sesame oil), followed by a decadent truffled 'donburi' (RM108; an immensely pleasurable rice bowl crowned with Blackmore Wagyu beef slices, foie gras, an onsen egg, black truffles & truffle oil) & an inventive dessert of watermelon slices with wasabi ice cream & a caramel crisp (RM28; the presentation is meant to evoke tuna sashimi). Everything we tried proved promisingly tasty.

  6. Oh? So that's what the name says, eh? Thought it was some Russian or Greek name. Is this a Japanese place or what?

  7. Ah, another outlet opened in this boulevard. That donburi bowl looks mighty fine...and expensive...but that is to be expected with wagyu and foie gras ;) If you didn't say that was watermelon, it looked more like thinly sliced raw beef (than tuna sashimi) to me! ;D
