Run by the same
owner of Pickle & Fig, Kushi Raku
presents you a laid-back yet cozy Izakaya-styled restaurant where you could
bask in the scrumptious array of kushiyaki freshly grilled by Ken himself,
together with the assistance of Chef Kim, who has just joined the bandwagon recently
as the business expand further that dictates more resources are needed to
ensure guests’ comfort dining.

 

 
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.

 

 

 


Most of the
grilled sticks are glazed with sweet and savory yakitori sauce that is inhouse
prepared and discreetly adjusted.

 
Appetizers to
sorta warm up our palate first before welcoming kushiyaki to our table.

CHUKA SAZAE NIKU- SNAIL MEAT (MYR 9)

Resembles the
usual Japanese marinated chukka hotate except that this snail meat is much denser
and springier.

 
EIHIRE- SKATE FIN (MYR 10)

Both smell and
taste got me hooked on for more- can’t help but it’s as enjoyable as the
addictive dried grilled squid. Very fragrant and ideally pairs with beer!

 

 
Guess it’s time
to showcase the much anticipated Kushiyaki!

Assorted grilled
skewers are available, from chicken, beef and pork- it’s all depends on your
preference. But for me personally, I love their pork most! (=

 

 
SHIO TEBA – CHICKEN WINGS WITH SALT (MYR
7)

Grilled by Ken
adeptly over Japanese imported machine that uses infra-red heating system to
ensure even heat dispersion so each kushiyaki is done to perfection. Not overly
cooked but just nice to retain the succulence and tenderness.

 
You just can’t
go wrong with this grilled skewered
chicken wings with salt. Its natural sweetness and meat tenderness are
well retained rendering very delightful bites encased within a crispy skin on
the outside. Oishii!

 
Here you go, an
interlude made for butaniku entry.

TSUKUNE- PORK MEATBALL (MYR 6)

Tsukene it is!

Literally
touted as crème de la crème of the day- personal fave (=

Am not a usual
self-proclaimed lover of any meatball sort, but this nosh is simply lovely!
Each munch is so uber juicy that most probly, you would beg for another helping,
double thumbs up!!!

 

 
SO-SU BARA- PORK BELLY WITH SAUCE (MYR 6)

 

 
RAISU BE-KON MAKI- BACON WRAP RICE (MYR
6)

Barbequed deep
fried Bacon roll with Japanese spiced rice to attain that caramelized texture.
It’s quite filling after bite or two, so
never think that skewer grubs will never feed your tummy to the brim (=

 

 
SHIO GYUUNIKU- BEEF RIBEYE WITH SALT (MYR
11)

Meat slices of
the angus beef are still lush as they are grilled till medium done without any
heavy sauces but merely salt to bring out the natural flavor of gyuniku.

 
Some greens to
balance out the meaty session, hehe.

CHERRY TOMATO WITH SALT (MYR 4)

 
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.

 

 
CLEAR SOUP UDON (MYR 12)

Udon was
decently good with clear soup paste entailed with some subtle briny flavor.

 

 
“Where is the Japanese prime brew?”, you might
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……

 
Aha, some new discoveries!
Sparkling Sake from Gekkeikan!

According to
Ken, sake is best drunk cold to seize that enamoring tastebud. But for now, let
us give this elegant bottle a try, shall we?

 
SPARKLING SAKE (MYR 40)

First sip
renders a pretty stronger yeast taste near to mirin, round up cleanly and
refreshingly light with a sparkling sweet hint. Seems like now I have better ‘sparkling’
choice other than sparkling champagne of FürstenfassPheromon 750 or sparkling
water of San Pellegrino (=

 

 
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❤

Many have talked about this dainty cakehouse located
at Publika Shopping Gallery and finally, we got the chance to drop by for a
taste or two recently for its famed delicious
cakes and desserts, after ducking out
awhile from the hectic schedule.

 
Alluring
and motleys of assorted cakes are the heart and soul of Swich Café, and
as such, the luscious cakes are aptly displayed to the public conveniently in
the glass which easily takes the centrestage naturally.

 
Being the pride
of Swich Cafe, guests would be more often than not be spoilt for choices upon
coming up to the cake counter, deliberately contemplating which piece of sweet
morsels to choose from. The selection of cakes are pretty extensive here,
assuring there is everything to suit everyone’s sweet tooth craving.

 
Open air
enclave that is soothingly exuded with violet hue as the theme.

 
All-time signatures
of familiar flavours such as mangosteen and cempedak cakes have throned the
limelight for quite some time now, so let’s make some way to greet an array of newly
introduced indulgent slices that are equally promising to the taste buds too.

FRENCH
APPLE GULA MELAKA CREAM CAKE (MYR 12.90)

Bridging the gastronomical gap between Each and West,
foodie’s palate is greeted with the juicy cubes of moist apple bites layered
between the cakes. It then reminds me of sipping into a fruity apple juice or snacking
on some apple pie; stirring up some sweet memories indeed …………

 

 
SALTED
CARAMEL JAPANESE CHEESECAKE (MYR 12.90)

Light and
fluffy Japanese cheesecake layered with salted caramel cream cheese, drizzled
with sea-salted caramel. I always love how the briny character of
the sodium enhances the caramel taste harmoniously.

 

 


THE
APHRODITE (MYR 12.90)

So named
after the Greek Goddess of Love and Fertility! Hehe………

Bursting
with pomegranates, figs, strawberries and blueberries, the vibrant chromatic
garnishment is already beckoning from afar, even before reaching our table. Each
tiny bites of the pomegranates is bursting with juices, hence injecting zesty fruitiness
into it. No refined white sugar is used here, only Gula Melaka and brown sugar.

 

 
MUSANG
KING DOUBLE DURIAN PIE (MYR 15.90)

Creamy
musang king durian on a Varlhona cocoa biscuit crust topped with Durian Cream! The
chocolaty crust is tad too hard for me, but unmistakably appealing to any serious
durian fans out there, as its unique pungency is what we truly adore palatably,
no? Indeed a true durian indulgence!

 

 
SALTED
CARAMEL TRIPLE VARLHONA FUDGE (MYR 12.90)

Chocolate
cake made with Grand Crus Varhona single origin chocolate, frosted with Varlhona
chocolate cocoa fudge and a layer of salted caramel cream cheese. Essentially
the true gratification of chocolate heaven especially when my fave choc brand
is part of the ingredient. The fact I love Varlhona chocolate is that it comes
at the right cocoa proportion with the right saccharinity, not overly sugary
but with real dark chocolate sensation, nyumm…………

 

 
Coming towards the end, let’s make it a triple shot today for Varhona noms,
shall we? (=

VARHONA
HOT CHOCOLATE (MYR 12)

It could also easily mistaken as Mocha, except the
fact that the espresso shot is missing, hehe. A good alternative for those
chocolate lovers who just simply love slurping and enjoying the fragrant
chocolaty drink. The perfect-winter beverage I would say…

 


LAVENDER
LATTE (MYR 11)

Some interesting tweak to the usual
average cup of Latte. After Salted Latte, RoseLatte and now, we have Lavender latte in the house! Milky and smooth body gracefully
engaged by the lavender aroma.

 
Embarked on a confectionary-centric
enterprise, Swich Café easily lives up to a place where epicurean could escape
from the hustle and bustle of city life for a moment, to indulge relaxingly
with sumptuous home-baked cakes over aromatic cups of Joe that gonna unwind
your day blissfully. Certainly a hide-out for ardent dessert lovers, that for
sure!

Fish & Co. has
recently launched its new lunch set menu that is wallet-friendly to cater for the
every briskly lunch crowds starting from MYR 11.95 onwards.

 
Came
up with two categories of Hungry Set and Very Hungry Set, the latter would be
much more appealing to those who have a bigger appetite, wanting more varieties
to its main course as it comes with 2 side dishes.

 

 
Hungry Set

SPAGHETTI POMODORO (MYR 11.95)

Your
usual comfy pasta with red sauce, added with some chunky bites of sweet-savory
tomatoes.

 
VONGOLE AGLIO OLIO (MYR 18.95)

For
the fans of clam, this would made a decent plate of your comfy meal, although
it would be better should more olive oil are added to it for that smoother
nuance.

 
CAESAR SALAD WITH GRILLED CHICKEN
(MYR 14.95)

This
green salad surprisingly fares pretty good with its added chewy bites of tender
diced chicken meat that are adequately marinated.

 
ARCTIC FISH
& CHIPS (MYR 17.95)

You just couldn’t go wrong with a piece of freshly fried catch of
the day paired with thickly cut fries! Batter was gladly not overly thick and
remain crispy in every mouthful bites. The only hiccup from personal
perspective was the dipping sauce which is tad too sweet for me, rather than
slightly sourish like tartar sauce. Just thought that the mild tartness from
the pickled cucumber bits would balance out the whole fried food serving or any
greasiness (which is not so apparent over here, so not to worry about that)

 
GRILLED PERI-PERI POLLOCK WITH
PAELLA RICE (MYR 17.95)

For
those who prefer some healthier choice, you may have it grilled and drizzled
with some spiced relish of peri-peri condiments made inhouse. Not too spicy but
more on the savory side.

 

 
Now,
let’s move on to the bigger portion.

Very Hungry Set (comes with
2 side dishes)

GRILLED PERI-PERI CHICKEN (MYR
20.95)

The
slab of chicken meat is equally flavorful and tenderly done, basted in the
house special peri-peri sauce. Goes well with rice that is added with some
raisins.

 
SEASONAL CATCH WITH SPICY TERIYAKI
(MYR 22.95)

A
slight variation from the common plate, this grilled fish is accompanied by
Japanese-inspired gravy to tickle the palate delectably, with rather mild,
peppery taste.

 
CORIANDER
CATCH (MYR 23.95)

As clearly presented, this round the fish is nutritiously served
with green coriander paste that is too gooey for me. Personally would liken it
to be drier for some textured nuance and perhaps a little sprinkles of salt would
do the overall dish a favour too.

 
GRILLED SALMON CAJUN STYLE (MYR
25.95)

Eventually,
toothsome salmon fillet joins the group deliciously with lightly grilled exterior
to lock the juiciness within.

 

 

 
Super
add-on deal is also available to further spice up the enjoyment, with soup of
the day available at only MYR 5.95 and MYR 3.50 for side dishes, from paella
rice, chips, mashed potato, homemade coleslaw to seasonal vegetables.

 

 

 

 

 

 
And i love the mashed potato the most (=

Last but not least, clear the throat with some iced lemon tea after the ‘fish-ful’
feast of the night!

more ‘food-ful’ discoveries! ❤ℒℴѵℯ❤

Whether you are a King or Queen, boy or girls,
everyone is welcomed to this culinary regality DIM SUM KING VS STEAMBOAT
QUEEN, serving both Dim Sum and Steamboat delicacies all under one roof at
Sunway Mentari here.

 
Previously known as Fatty Cat Steamboat restaurant,
it has since been taken over and renamed royally before embarking on an
immensely wider spread of choice, from sumptuous little Oriental morsels under
seasoned chef of 20 years to piping hot steamboat broth ranging from the Macau-inspired
pork bone soup, tom yam or porridge.

 
Food are reasonably priced here and I can’t help but
to indulge more on the dim sum selections, which are notably very well executed
deliciously with assured freshness. Dim Sum are served throughout the morning till
lunch time while steamboat feast proceed later on till at night.

Steamboat (All You Can Eat) MYR 38++.

Dim Sum (Ala-Carte) MYR 4.60 nett each

Fret not over sweating as comfortable dining area
are there to cool you off while ‘steaming’ with the steamboat-ing session.

 

 
Also delights in an assorted array of homemade
meatballs, imported beef, lamb and mussels from New Zealand and fresh oysters
too!

 

 
As we usually prefer our steamboat broth to be
clear, we opted for the signature and crowd’s favorite Pork Bone Soup, that
surprises the taste buds of ours with its sweet sapidness from the pork bone
with an added smoothness from the milk too. Watching it slowly boiled in the
pot together with the other ingredients are enough to get us drooling lots!

 
But let’s not be too impatient and savour their uber
awesome Dim Sum spread first, shall we? (=

 
Diners could choose from over 50 types of choices-
steamed or fried dim sums, with chee cheong fun and varieties of porridge to
warm up your tummy. As we have steamboat session coming up next, so we stick to
some lighter bites instead such as crystal shrimp dumpling, steamed siew mai, pork
ribs with black bean sauce, golden bun aka custard bun, sesame pastry with
lotus, pan fried carrot cake and the list goes on.

 

 

 
And my best bet would be their prawn-themed nosh
such as har kau, fried or prawn dumpling. Each mouthful bites suggests
bounteous juiciness fully-packed in it rendering an unmistakable satisfaction
as reflected by our facial expression (=

 

 
Ensue soon is steamboat time!

 
A luscious plate of delish combination with handmade
dumplings too!

 
On top of that, diners could also actually have
their chosen ingredients to be dished out in their favorite flavours such as
salted egg crab, or spicy chilli too. Now that is another steal to this marvelous
dim sum-steamboat combo establishment (=

 

 


Ah, don’t forget to tickle the sweet tooth of yours
with Polar brand ice popsicles or even waffle ice creams too, gently reviving
my childhood memories, hehe.

 


So are you ready for the battle between the King and
Queen? Who will triumph in the end, taste wise? Hehe. The only way to justify
it is to come and find out sioon, which wins the cockles of your heart more,
the dim sum or the steamboat (=

Cheers
