First day of work after a long one week CNY holiday. It was rather hard coming back for work but it was ok as there will be lot's more food and celebrations. First day back (Chor 6) is an auspicious day to start work and one can see the reason why traffic condition in KL was back to normal that is 'bad traffic'.
Interesting it was for all of us in the office. There was lot's of conversation about what has happened during the holidays coming from everyone who was so eager in sharing. Blah ... blah .... blah ..... But in the end the universal languague kicked in ~ 'let's go for lunch' !
All of us decided to go Japanese to celebrate our 'back to work' after the CNY holidays. We wanted to have something extraordinary and the chosen restaurant was just around the corner where we work ie 'Rakuzen' at G Tower.
Place was pretty cool with it's open concept covering the whole dining floor. There was some 'private' rooms made available for those who wanted to have some privacy. And it was pretty packed with lunch crowd too.
|Yee Sang @ RM38.00++|
It was a joy eating up this plate of extraordinary Japanese style Yee Sang. Tasted very different and tasted very good. Such a pure delight as we were so tempted to have another go. Truly amazing.
|Nameko Soba @ RM18.00++|
|Sukiyaki Zen @ RM30.00++|
There was a bowl of raw egg which is used to dip the hot beef slice so it will cool the temperature down which in order for it to be 'mouth friendly'. Beef was not overcook simply because it was thinly sliced and tasted really really good.
Came with it was a cup of 'Chawamushi' which was steamed egg. Simple and nice indeed. A favourite of mine too and again wanted more! But judging the portion of this set ..... prevented me from having another cup.
|Chicken Teriyaki Zen @ RM22.00++|
|Sakura C Zen @ RM30.00++|
|Chicken Katsujyu Zen @ RM22.00++|
|Sushi Unagi Zen @ RM42.00++|
Dipped the sushi into the special sauce mixed with some wasabi ~ kawabanga !!! ichiban !!! but not itchy bawah. LOL. As for the eel ..... I found the teriyaki sauce to be over dominating. Maybe it's the way it should be or maybe I was not used to eating this dish but somehow ...... all I could taste was just the sauce. Anyhow eel was pretty good but this is not something I would like to eat too often as eel contains a very high percentage of mercury which is harzadous to human body.
Conclusion : I like the environment, the feel of this restaurant, and service was pretty good indeed. We were a little disappointed as it took them awhile to serve us our set lunches. Set lunches was supposed to be served like the speed of 'fast food' but it was otherwise. Food quality was at it's best and all of us walked away with a happy face and a full load belly. A little costly and not too pocket friendly. A 3.5/5. Gambate!!!
