Yoko's @ Changkat Bukit Bintang

August 28, 2009

Creativity is the name of the game at Yoko's, where dozens of dishes are presented with intriguing twists. The results are often hit-or-miss.

Salmon 4 Floors Sushi. Hearty heaps of salmon and roe stacked on rice.

Mix of tuna sashimi, yam and avocado in Korean yukke-style. Pretty refreshing.

Cake-style chirashi sushi. A unique presentation, but tasted like typical sushi.

Oven-baked prawns and veggies in an avocado case, topped with cream sauce and cheese. Comfort food at its most guilt-inducing.

"French-style" sushi. Some interesting experiments here, especially the sushi with mango sauce, but the marriage of flavours didn't always work.

Tempura soba. Pour the hot dipping sauce into the platter, and voila! One of the most successful dishes; we enjoyed it though we aren't big fans of soba.

Duck egg. Pretty much the regular ones that you'll find at Chinese restaurants.

Yoko's Special Roll, stuffed with three different kinds of sashimi, rayu mayonnaise, caviar, diced avocado and cucumber. A letdown; tasted mediocre and unmemorable.

"Pizza sushi." Coated with cheese and mayo, which drowned out everything.

Forgettable mixed grill comprising chicken, liver, quail eggs and mushrooms.

Rising Sun (sake, cointreau, grapefruit juice & grenadine) and Devil May Cry (vodka, gin, rum, cointreau & amaretto).

Kabuki (vodka, sake, lime cordial) & Yoko's Dream (gin, sake & lychee liqueur).
