Izakaya Kushi Raku specializes in kushikatsu, a Japanese dish of seasoned, skewered and grilled meat and vegetables. It is the latest hangouts in TTDI, located besides of Pickle & Fig because Izakaya Kushi Raku owned and operated by the same owner of Pickle & Fig. =) That is a huge different between Pickle & Fig and Izakaya Kushi Raku, Pickle & Fig is to offer healthy fresh handcrafted panini, sandwiches and smoothies. However, Izakaya Kushi Raku is serving the flavourful skewers and beers. There are lack of parking space during working hours, but ample of parking space after working hour.

Izakaya Kushi Raku setup as a modern, hassle-free and fun Japanese grilled bar. Adding a Japanese touch to interior design, hang up the red lenterns and bamboo at the entrance, Sake bottles can be seen on top of the rack and even the furniture is mostly custom made to bring cohesiveness to the whole ambience.

Chuka Sazae Niku RM9

So sorry that i didn't take a proper photo of it, it is actually behind of the sake. ><!!! This is an appetizer made from snail meat. Marinated in special sauce so i don't know this is snail meat until they told me, it is chewy in texture and flavourful, but a bit salty and i think it will be best paired with ice cold Japanese beer or a sparkling sake.

Eihire (Skate Fin, left in picture) RM10

It's a delicacy! The longer you chew Eihire, the more flavorsome it. I just can't stop to eat it before the food serve.

Gekkeikan Sake RM19 (per jar)

Gekkeikan is one of the world's leading sake brands and naturally brewed with contains no added sulfites.

Grilled Riceball with Salmon (Salmon Yakionigiri) RM7

As a Japanese grill bar, Izakaya Kushi Raku serve a range of awesome beers and sake of course! Recommended the Sparkling Sake which is very good to go with the skewers. Izakaya Kushi Raku is also one of the few bars that serves Kirin Ichiban (Oh My! i love this beer!!! it is kinda gentle and smooth). It must be a wonderful place for sake lovers. =)

Izakaya Kushi Raku is a fun place to catch up with friends and stay chill for the evening with some good foods and nice beer.

Words about perfectly
well done Kushi Raku’s skewered meats got around since its humble operation in
Dec 2014, making it a popular hangouts among TTDI folks and foodies of Klang
Valley, who are looking for that vintage and casual place to wind down over
awesome food, coupled with swigs of premium Kirin draught. I mean, who don’t
love this simply hearty and fuss-free Japanese street food?

Not only are the
kushiyaki treats are lusciously served here, but also come at truly affordable price.
Riding on a skewered-centric theme, your palate would be amusingly tickled by
the relatively large variety of kushiyaki choice, such as grilled chicken meat,
pork, beef and many more. Wanna go easy on the meat perhaps? Then udons would
be a good option too.

EBI TEMPURA (MYR 22)

Tempura prawn is
one commendable dish here as it’s brilliantly breaded and deep fried till
golden brown and yet no too greasy. Bouncy prawns to be dipped with tempura
sauce that have been added with some grated radish. Would be better if the
tempura batter used is slightly brinier, just a personal preference by the way.

be asking.

Here you go, the
much anticipated draught Kirin.

DRAUGHT BEER-KIRIN (MYR 22- HALF PINT)

True enough,
it’s so much smoother and remember to have it quickly- to get the very foamy
sip upon served. You’ll definitely be captivated by the silken nuance of the
Japanese premium beer, and this all thanks to Gary for his in time headups to
this novice when comes to drinking, haha……

All in all, it
was definitely a great and delightful Izakaya session, sampling the deliciously
grilled kushiyaki that are ideally paired with Japanese beers. If you’re are
looking for some quiet place to spend your lazy day leisurely, Kushi Raku might
be one pit stop you’d like to stop by, chilling out and catching up with
like-minded camaraderie.

Cheers
for now and follow us at Carpe Diem for more ‘food-ful’ discoveries! ❤ℒℴѵℯ❤
