Nippori @ Empire Damansara

Calling itself a Japanese home cooking cafe, Nippori seeks to kindle the spirit of family-made meals, served fresh from the kitchen in a charmingly cosy space that evokes the welcoming warmth of a friendly household from the Land of the Rising Sun.


The cafe offers teishoku (RM35) - meal sets that comprise a main dish (we tried the flavourful fried lotus roots stuffed with minced chicken) plus rice, miso soup, vegetables & fruits for a fulfilling feast. Customers can also order wholesome renditions of donburi (RM25; steamed rice bowls topped with the likes of natto & sliced okra), complete with the bevy of accompaniments. The food tastes competent & nourishing, prepared with an authentic measure of heart & honest effort.

Nippori Cafe
F-02, Empire Damansara, Damansara Perdana, Petaling Jaya, Selangor. 
Beside Haraju-Cube (both outlets share a Japanese-heritage founder).

  2. At least one would not have to sit on the floor! May be quite a task for me to get seated and to get up again though - had that once in Bangkok but I was very slim then, yes, believe it or not, I was!!! LOL!!!

  4. The Teishoku looks rather attractive with all those side dishes. I would love to taste the fried lotus roots stuffed with minced chicken. I think I will like it.
