Next we tried the Kyoguku Sashimi Moriawase which it is served with shiny pinks and reds sitting atop slices of lemon that gave most of the pieces a lovely zing.There were seven different kinds of fish in the bowl and they were all extremely fresh which includes Toro(Tuna belly),Hamachi(Yellow tail),Shake belly(Salmon belly), Hotate(Scallop), Maguro(Tuna), Ika(cuttlefish) as well as Mekajiki(Swordfish). The sashimi is very appetizing and the chef is using the ice to maintain the freshness of the sashimi.

If you love fish, Gindara Teriyaki is one of the recommended dish of all. The cod fish is tender, white, non-fishy fish that goes wonderfully well with teriyaki sauce. The taste is slightly salty to me but it is still good as the fish is fresh and smooth.

The Soba noodles are also one of the favorites in the shop as well. The soba noodles are tangy and it is also very smooth and silky. I just fall in love with the soba which comes with some seaweed on top with the mushrooms

We completed our meal with the desserts. What’s so special about the desserts? We are having WASABI ice cream.. This is indeed something special rather than the usual green tea or red bean ice cream. The ice creams are one of the speciality here where I think wasabi ice cream is hardly being found in Malaysia. The wasabi ice cream is cold from the outside and once you taste it, it has the strong and burning sensation to your throat. If you are a Wasabi Fans, you may think of trying these.
Price: RM 15.00++

Aside, we also tried the Sesame Ice Cream which turns out to be very nice. The ice cream is great as well with the thick smells of sesame with it.
Price: RM 15.00++
