Fans of Japanese cuisine are pretty spoilt for choice these days, with major malls containing at least one, if not more, Japanese restaurants. Well, having said that sometimes going off the usual mall circuit to a place like KIMI-YA Japanese Restaurant at Avantas Residences along Old Klang Road can lead to a gastronomic adventure.

Well, I'm back here again to check out Chef Khim's series of new dishes to tempt our palate. Having 16 years of culinary experience under his belt, the chef is absolutely passionate and creative in churning out a brand new contemporary Japanese cuisine to excite his guests from time to time.

My first visit to KIMI-YA was last year when they just opened for business in Nov 2017. Read my first tasting right here: Kimi-Ya 1st Review

Special Japanese Yee Sang Tuna or Maguro Sashimi is a real treat for sashimi lovers. Served with the freshest of the fresh raw fish from a Japanese restaurant and topped with their housemade Yuzu sauce too. Diners can add on Salmon or Tuna/Maguro Sashimi, both at RM 28 each.

I find the Japanese especially tastier and different from the usual ones served at Chinese restaurants. For once, the sauce used is different as instead of the sweet plum sauce, diners get to taste Yee Sang in different perspectives with the Japanese citrus fruit, Yuzu.

Japanese Yee Sang With Salmon 4 to 6 pax RM 38
Really enjoyed the sourish Yuzu taste, the aromatic sauce has a distinct flavour that enhances the fresh ingredients of shredded carrot, radish, crushed peanuts, crispy crackers, sesame seed and the rest of the condiments.

Our Matsu Sashimi Moriwase, a sumptuous spread of 6 kinds of Sashimi which includes Hotate, Salmon, White Tuna, Scallop, Hamachi (Yellow Tail Fish) and Ikura. I always enjoy having a Moriawase platter as it allows the chef to serve you with his personal best selection of the catch of the day. ๐ŸŸ๐ŸŸ๐ŸŸ

If you are at a loss of which Maki roll to try from their wide selection in the menu, I would suggest you just go for Chef Khim's creation of his crafted KIMI-YA Special Roll. Avocado, omelette and cucumber roll with garlic mayonnaise on sliced tuna and black caviar topping sounds pretty enticing, right? 

Hotate To Kinoko No Mentai Yaki RM 28

Moving to the Grill Menu, we had the Hotate To Kinoko No Mentai Yaki. It consists of grilled scallop and mushroom with seared marinated roe mayonnaise. Both ocean fresh ingredients of scallop and marinated roe was a delight to our taste buds as they complement each other pretty well. 

Goushuu No Wagyu Ishiyaki Miso RM 120

From the GYU specials, diners looking for some exciting grills dishes can check out the premium Wagyu beef. Goushuu No Wagyu Ishiyaki Miso, grilled thinly sliced Australian Wagyu beef on a hot stone with spicy soybean paste sauce is a good pick if you are willing to splurge on eight slices of one of the finest beef in Japan, known for its rich meaty flavour with melt-in-the-mouth texture and evenly marbled, high-ratio fat content.

Goushuu No Wagyu Ishiyaki Miso RM 120
An aromatic meaty dish, simple to cook - lightly grilled on the chunky heated-up volcanic tile. Firstly, you need to oil the hot tile with cubes of fat provided follow by grilling the Waygu beef slice one at a time. Be patient, don't try to grill all at a time as you might overcook these whole batch of premium beef.

The trick to cooking a perfect piece of Japanese beef is to put one slice of beef at a time. Basically, you only cook your own slice and dip it in the sauce provided before savouring it.

Another option to try the prized Wagyu beef, Chef Khim offers light but flavourful soup loaded with assorted vegetables such as several choices of fresh mushrooms, carrot slice and tofu together with Wagyu beef slices.

Same as the hot stone cooking style, just remember to light cook the beef slices after you have cook the rest of the ingredients. Over-cooking the beef will cause the meat to toughen up and would not be as tender and juicy as it should be.

If beef is not your choice, do try a similar version of Chicken Shabu-shabu where thinly sliced chicken with assorted vegetables in soup served with citrus dipping sauce.

If you still have stomach for more, there are ramen selections to check out from. Take your pick from the chicken soup ramen served with teriyaki chicken, seafood or stir-fried marinated beef. All ramen are fully imported from Japan to maintain it's authenticity. You see, Chef Khim has his choice pick of the best ramen coming from Japan, so you can be assured of tasting some of the best Ramen in KIMI-YA.  

Yakiniku Paitan Ramen RM 33
Chicken white soup ramen with stir-fried marinated beef is a good choice if you are into beef. Featuring fresh ramen with the addition of Tamago egg and seaweed, the marinated beef enhanced the rather plain chicken broth making it a good comforting noodles dish to eat. 

 Curry Udon RM 22

Japanese curry is never my favourite due to the fact that it's lacking in spiciness, the fresh herbs and spices usually present on our local curry which Malaysian are so accustomed too. Anyhow, Chef Khim has fine-tuned the Japanese curry udon to be a little bit more fragrant and spicier, less sweet to cater to the local taste buds.

Our last but not least udon noodles we tasted was the Tori Nanban Udon consist of pure wheat noodles served with chicken in the soup. We were quite stuffed after the grand mini feasting but nevertheless, this humble and simple chicken and wheat noodles soup was a delight to eat for the chewy texture of the wheat udon. Serving portion is good for sharing if you are a small eater.

Dessert to end our meal at KIMI-YA was none other than the popular Japanese Mochi, a dessert synonymous with Japanese dessert of house made rice cake with red bean paste and the fragrant roasted soybean powder.
