Akashi BBQ @ Puchong

KL's yakiniku experts have expanded their horizons: Akashi BBQ brings the atmospheric allure of alfresco grilling to Puchong, spearheaded by the team that currently also steers Taman Desa's much-revered Gerai Makan Japanese BBQ Taisyu Yakiniku.

Follow the scent of the meat, sizzling aromatically outdoors on charcoal-fired stoves, tended patiently & precisely by Akashi's staff. Take a table in this wide-open space & select from choice cuts of pork, beef & seafood, beautifully marinated to preserve the produce's purity of flavour & to best complement the smoky nuances that result from this time-honoured type of cooking.

Our favourite is the pork belly (RM10), endowed with an irreproachably crisp juiciness - one plate might leave you asking for more. The pork neck (RM10) is also pleasurably succulent; but if you prefer far leaner slices, try the leg or shoulder loin (RM10 each). Beef is available too in options like brisket or rib-eye (RM10), which succeed well enough to satiate bovine yearnings.

The Genghis Khan, protein-powered with lamb shoulder cooked with cabbage in a sweet broth on a dome-shaped skillet (RM20), has long earned legendary renown in Taman Desa & is offered in Puchong too. But we were even more impressed by the foil-prepared salmon (RM15) & Japanese squid (RM13), both tender & flavoursome, with delicious dips on the side.

Akashi's kitchen is capable of also whipping up respectable ramen, served in a wallet-friendly soup or fried (RM10 each), the latter of which comes with a most welcome sprinkling of crunchy pork lard that's also present on the garlic fried rice (RM10). End with another teppanyaki temptation, the fried mixed pork organ meat (RM10), & drink up with Kirin beer (RM14) & sake (RM16). Many thanks to the Akashi BBQ team for having us here.

  2. Wow, grilled meats with service....I like! ;) But the question is...can the staff attend to many tables at peak dinner time? Or we're supposed to do some of the grilling ourselves?

    1. Contact.ewew: yes, i'm also not really a fan of cooking the meat ourselves, heh. i think if the place is fully swamped, then it's possible you may need to do some of the grilling whenever the staff is tending to other tables :)

  3. Puchong? Eeeeeee.... Muahahahaha!!!!

    But yes, everything looks so good here - I wouldn't mind dropping by but that's out of my way, not around KL city centre and the areas around it. Nobody to take me all the way - jam in and out of this place still as bad as before?

    1. Suituapui: yeah, it can be tricky to get to puchong from other areas, but if you plan your trip wisely (avoid weekdays, i guess), then it's worth heading over here :D
