Ishin @ Old Klang Road
March 18, 2010
This Japanese restaurant had a rough start, but it seems to have found a steady footing now, with reasonably friendly, efficient service and decent food.
Complimentary appetizer of minced tuna & cucumber salad.
Tatami Iwashi (sun-dried baby sardines). A crisp, simple snack with a mildly salty flavour that goes well with sake. Healthier than potato chips, right?
Unagi Yanagawa (simmered eel with veggies). Pure comfort food; thankfully, the unagi retained its distinctive flavour without ever turning soggy.
Rice with Japanese curry. Another rustic recipe that tasted wholesome and nourishing, with a slight spiciness that might have been incorporated for Malaysian tastebuds.
Sukiyaki, brimming with succulent slices of Aussie beef in an aromatic broth.
Four kinds of ice cream: lavender, wasabi, citrus & melon. Refreshingly chilly, with subtle, delicate flavours, but less creamy than we might have preferred.
Tamano Hikari sake.
