Ever heard of the name Waku Waku ? Waku Waku in Japanese means thrilled and excited and this time we are indeed excited to find out what is in Waku Waku.

Raw or cooked, hot or cold, it is your personal choice for and exquisite dining experience to be shared with friend and family. I love the setting of the restaurant which is bringing me the greeny feeling and homely too. The restaurant is basically lovely with the unique and modern feel. It is well located the same floor as Mid Valley and it is well decorated as well. It is basically taking over the the place of Sushi King.
We started our meal with the Salmon Carpaccio. This is where the raw slamon slices are being served with the green butter mayonnaise and their home Wafu dressing. The delights is good and the salmon is fresh as well.The dish is simply delicate and arranged in perfection for the ‘raw and chilled’ lovers.
Salad is another delights which is not to be missed in Waku Waku. The Mushidori Salad is being served with the fresh vegetables and topped with the selected dressing. In Mushidori Salad, the steamed shredded chicken salad is being served with the sesame dressing where you can find lovely dressing like Jelly Fish, Cherry Tomato and Lettuce inside.
Kinoko no Irodori Yasaiitame is one of my favorite. The stir fried mushroom with vegetables is a great mix where the mushroom is well fragrant and the taste of the mushroom is sinfully delicious.

If you are a sushi lover, do not missed their Dragon roll where the fried shrimp is being breaded with the minces shrimps and crab and it is well wrapped. It is topped with the fresh Avocado on top of it which creates dish to be fresh and delicious.

I am loving the dishes which is being grilled. Tokusen Kushiyaki Moriawase is a right one for me as I love the skewers which is well grilled and tasty. It is indeed a having a divine presentation which comes with the natural flavors and textures enchanced over the grill. The Assorted Selected Skewers which are being served is the Hotate Kushi, Tori Momo Kushi and Tomato Beef. I am falling in love with the Hotate Kushi where the scallops are fresh and very delightful. As for the chicken, its meat is tender and juicy as well which goes the same to the beef.
Some fusion for now? Yes.. I am missing Fried Koay Teow and now Waku Waku has its own Japanese Koay Teow. This is where the Japanese Noodles which comes with the fusion touch and it is served hot to delights your tastebuds. The Japanese Styled Fried Rice Koay Teow is where the noodles are being stir fried with the shoyu-miso based sauce. The delights is amazingly lovely and the noodles are well fried. Something different to try at Waku Waku.

The Green Butter Grilled Salmon Steak Rice is being mixed with the Minced Chicken. It is being added with a light chili powder to enhance the spicy flavours.

If you love to have some thing to warm up the tummy, how about having the Sukiyaki Nabe. The Sukiyaki nabe is being served with the thin Australian sliced Beef with the pot of Japanese Soy Sauce Soup Base. The bowl of pipping hot soup is being added with enoki mushrooms, and vegetarian. With the light base of Mirin and Shoyu, the soup brings the sweet and sourish taste which I love it most.

If you could not take beef, the tofu chige is also a good match. The delights is served with clams as well as beancurds. The combination is perfectly well made and delicious the tofu with it with the combination of kimchi and shoyu which makes the soup sinfully delicious.
How about having some children’s favorites which is the tenpura. This is where the fresh ingridients are being deep fried and you can see they are being enveloped by a layer of crispness simply for a golden taste.Tenpura Moriawase is a where the Assorted Deep Fried with Tenpura Batter are being served. In the bowl, you may get the Ebi Tenpura (deep fried shrimp with tenpura batter),
Kinoko Tenpura (deep fried mushrooms with tenpura batter) which is where the delighs with the crispy texture.
Chicken Terriyaki Pizza is where they are using the freshly made dough for their pizza. The pizza is very flavourful and each bites brings the chewy texture and they have the marvellous topping which I fall in love on the first bite.
Mentaiko pasta is one of something special. Cooked with the combination of western and Japanese is a making a surprise to me. If you love the thick mentai flavors, it will be your love completely. The distinctive smoked salmon flavour and the taste of ebiko is really lovely. But, the texture is slightly dry to me.
Not to forget, we will begin on a tasteful dessert to end and exquisite Waku Waku meal for a complete satisfaction. Chocolate Brownie is where the moist chocolate cake is being topped with a scoop of ice cream. I love the chocolate which has the thick flavours of chocolate and the cake is very moist.
