Iketeru @ KL Hilton

We managed to wake up before noon on a recent Saturday and trudged over to Iketeru to sample their "Konichiwa" weekend brunch, which offers unlimited orders from an a la carte menu for RM98++ (not including drinks).

Sashimi of tuna, salmon, white tuna, yellow tail, surf clams, light grilled tuna and chopped fish meat with spicy miso paste. Not top-notch but good enough.

Grilled sea bream head with salt. Decent but unexciting. Lacked enough meat.

Grilled eel and Oden (hodgepodge of fish cakes, egg and simmered veggies). The unagi was pretty good, but the oden was our favorite item for this lunch. Stomach-warming stuff.

Assorted maki, comprising Fire Dragon (unagi with cili padi), Salmon Fry Cheese, Spider (soft shell crab and salad) and California (avocado, crab stick and flying fish roe). Too bad most of the ingredients seemed cold or soggy.

Grilled scallops with white sauce. Not particularly memorable.

Steamed cod fish with sake. We loved this; the cod was delicate and moist.

Teppanyaki prawns, cod, scallops and beef. Mixed feelings about this; most of the seafood was satisfyingly fresh, but the beef was tough and chewy.

Simmered beef and potato. Lacklustre compared to the oden.

Rocky Mountains Junmai Sake. Dry but with a full-bodied flavour.

Hilton KL.
