Eat Drink KL: Ogawa

Friday, June 24, 2011


The setting seems nondescript, but Ogawa serves a nice range of Japanese recipes, some of which can't be found elsewhere in Mont Kiara.

Tofu onsen tamago, topped with tiny worm-like fish. Squishy; not for the squeamish.

Eihire. Dried fish fins, the perfect bar snack. Less guilt-inducing than tortilla chips.

Anago tempura. Fabulous saltwater eel, blanketed by light, crisp batter.

Hamburg steak. Meaty and tasty enough to make a cranky carnivore tuck in happily.

Oden. A flavorsome stew with a homemade feel, filled with fish cakes, octopus, boiled eggs, konnyaku & radish. Perfect for rainy evenings.

Red wine, white wine; no need for us to whine.

Yikes! We forgot to photograph a plate of momotaro tomato, extravagantly priced at RM20 for a puny portion. But it was one of the sweetest, juiciest tomatoes ever.
