Jiun’s birthday was actually on the 6th, but we ended up celebrating it 20 days later because partially I’m a bit busy looking after Baby Kayden. Anyway, we celebrated her birthday at Kampachi, Pavilion simply because, a lot of us haven’t tried it before (except for Sherlin). What a good reason right? This is actually their newest branch, as they are a few outlets in Equatorial Hotels around the country.
Reservation is at 7PM, and despite me arriving late because of a meeting, I am still the earliest at the restaurant. Ladies, you can’t separate them from the word ‘Sales’.
So as all Malaysians always do, they reached the place at 730PM.
Enough ranting about them, Kampachi always give me this impression that their price will be sky high because of it’s name and location, but I found out that most of the sets are quite affordable and most of their sashimi and other things are quite fresh too. Price wise it ranges from RM30 to some which is RM90 but I think it’s quite worth it.
The birthday girl order a Sushi Bento set. Which consist of a variety of sushi like Sake, Inari, Taro, Unagi. Looks really good!
Lily ordered the Cod Fish set, with high grade miso paste being used to cook the cod fish. However, the Cod fish looks being normally seared but Lily confirmed that it’s not.
ChinChin, despite having a sore throat the day before, went ahead and ordered Unagi Salmon Set, which I initially wanted to order. But it’s ok, because the Unagi is not as big as it looked in the menu.
Er, Shireen, I hope the picture ok lar. If not, talk to Lily again ok? Haha. She ordered something more ‘wan chan’ like the Chicken Teppanyaki set, which I must say is not bad. Chicken is done to perfection and goes well with the rice.
Sherlin ordered the Chirashi Don. Basically a Japanese equivalent of the Hakka Pun Choy, but instead of meat, it’s filled with raw fish, on top of vinegared rice. Looks yummy! Too bad they serve Ebikko instead because on their menu, it’s clearly shown it’s served with Salmon Roe.
Kellie ordered a mix set, whichi is Soba set with Tempura rice with a piece of salmon. Should be ok lar because she wallops the whole set.
The set that I ordered, is the Sashimi set. Which looks really good as the slices of tuna, salmon is really thick compare to the ones serve at Sushi King or others. The fish is very fresh and almost melt in my mouth. All the sets comes with chawamushi and miso soup, which is rpetty standard.
I regretted that I never tried this earlier, because it’s one of the nicer Japanese restaurant that I have tried. Even better than the lights of the well known ones like Rakuzen or Yuzu.
It’s a nice outing for me to have a simple dinner. Although I do miss Kayden a lot when I am away.
Ok, just one last photo the #lunchgang requested me to post,
What does this looks like?
