Midori @ Putrajaya Marriott

June 30, 2010

Travelers trapped in Putrajaya's culinary wasteland might be tempted to surrender to despair. But several beacons of hope still burn bright here, including Midori.

Geoduck sashimi. A true treat, thanks to its fresh, springy texture.

Spider maki, that classic roll with soft-shell crab, avocado & tobiko. Ordinary-looking, but thoroughly addictive. The crunchy crab blended brilliantly with the creamy avocado.

Trio de oyster, prepared in three styles (all seemed like variations of cheese). We prefer our oysters raw, but if you must cook 'em, this is as good as it gets. Gooey and flavorful.

Salt-grilled blue-tailed prawns. Expertly prepared; despite its location in a landlocked capital, Midori seems to have found its forte in seafood.

Haku nama sake & Midori Yume (sake, malibu, melon liquor, pineapple juice).
