Teppanyaki Matsuoka: Round Two. Earlier entry: September 23.


Beef might seek to seize the spotlight at Matsuoka, but seafood refuses to play second fiddle.


The lobster teppanyakis well worth trying, fresh & fleshy, RM68++ for a half-portion.


Scallops sauteed with butter (RM25++) prove plenty juicy & pretty fairly priced.


Also well-prepared: Takoyaki octopus dumpling balls, not as greasy as feared ...


... plus Osaka-style okonomiyaki, stuffed with squid, another good one by chef Shuji Hamagami.


Quite like the omelet here too, despite the ketchup thats typically a bane for egg recipes.


What makes this triumphant is the satisfying layer beneath of chicken, avocado & tomatoes.


Also interesting: Tofu "steak," nice to nibble on as a starter or stomach-filler.


Love this one: Sweet corn, taken off the cob & skewered for convenient eating.


Desserts not spared from the teppanyaki treatment. The result: A fun version of French toast.

To forget a night to remember, all thats needed is a copious amount of sake ...


... complemented by sufficiently intoxicating shochu. Memories are, after all, overrated.
P.S. Seans away Nov. 7-17 in a mystery location 8,765 miles from KL. Daily blog entries have been scheduled in advance & will be automatically posted, but apologies as comments can only be replied far later.
