Yuzu recently unveiled its second branch, swooping into KLCC with the same hit-or-miss fare it has served at Mid Valley for the past several years.
Beware: the menu is vast, so over-ordering is definitely a danger.
Rice topped with yellowtail fish & egg in hot stone pot. A no-frills recipe that epitomizes the essence of comfort food. Piping-hot nutrition for rainy evenings.
Chicken thigh & avocado in olive oil sauce. Can anyone go wrong with a combo of tender meat with creamy avocado? Nope!
Yuzu Pizza, topped with flakes of unidentified fish & seaweed. This mix of tastes and textures wasn't a smashing success, with an unappealingly fishy flavor and excessively thick crust. The Italian outlets remain superior in the art of pizza-making.
Scallops & chopped veggies wrapped with thinly sliced fish, then baked with cream sauce. A savory pleasure, but the portion was puny enough to vanish in two bites.
Unagi with tofu salad. A hearty helping of fleshy, flavorsome eel helped to elevate what would otherwise have been a bland bowl of bean curd.
Bitter gourd salad. Not too bitter, mercifully, but not memorable either.
Wine is available, though the steep prices by the glass might conjure anxiety attacks.
