Since a friend of mine stays in Old Klang Road, there's a lot of great food there that has been introduced by her. A favourite would be Xenri as it offers pretty good Japanese meals especially when we're in the mood to splurge a little.

Something that I like about this place is the staff, both the wait & kitchen staff. Firstly they are very attentive at the front of house - making sure that we are properly settled with green teas and warm towel while we look through the menu.

As for the kitchen staff, the chef that handles the front sushi bar is rather well-acquainted with my friend so he almost always gives us a plate of complimentary sushi when we are there. And it is never anything that is of low quality or anything of that sorts, so they get A++ for that. We started looking through the menu after indulging in some warm towel and warm green tea, the waiter brought over a plate of nigiri sushi that was beautifully plated. This was an exquisite salmon belly that was perfectly fatty and tender topped with a sweet sauce and a minimal amount of wasabi. 

Now onto our actual meals, I ordered their Tempura & Nigiri sushi bento set. There were many others but most came with a bowl of rice which I was not craving for so this was the perfect one for me.Imagine my surprise when my meal arrived and how much of a feast it looked. As always the Japanese have this way of making every thing beautiful in it's own simplicity, like my set meal. 

This comes with a bowl of warm miso soup, super soft chawanmushi and also a sweet end to the meal with two thick wedge of sweet watermelon that's bursting with juice.

My set comes with a plate of Nigiri Sushi that was incredibly fresh tasting on top of looking immaculately pretty. I was initially very reluctant to start eating this because of how nice it looked - I foolishly did not have the heart to start eating any of these. 

But in the end I did since I was hungry and all of the seafood, from tuna to squid to prawn and salmon was all very clean tasting. Quality was definitely beyond my expectation.

Then there is also the tempura portion. Usually I never like ordering this because the vegetables & prawns always come with too much batter, plus are usually greasy like crazy. But that was not the case at Xenri's which I would rate them an 8/10 score for the tempura platter itself.

This place has fast become one of my favourite Japanese Restaurant to dine at, especially when I'm around Old Klang Road just looking to splurge. Very worth the visit.
