Tokyo Kitchen @ One City Mall, USJ [CLOSED DOWN]

Update: As of May 2017, Tokyo Kitchen at One City Mall is closed down now.

A lazy Sunday afternoon drove us to the newly opened shopping mall in USJ, The One City Shopping Mall with the transparent ‘horrified’ rooftop which is much talked about recently. Well, the rooftop can be scary, but only at night. So we went for late lunch at the Ground Floor, attracted by the Tokyo Kitchen brightly lit with hue yellowish light red lantern, bringing a calm and comfy scene within modernity.

We stepped inside and discovered more. The restaurant is divided into two floors, the special concept for most restaurants in One City. Wooden and bamboo furnishing made up the overall interior, from the dining area, counter, floorings to individual decorative items.

The wall adjacent to the staircases towards second floor was hang with rows and rows of wishes written on wooden plank by patrons, becoming part of the charming decorations that turns the restaurant lively, as it sees a two way communications between patrons and Tokyo Kitchen, rather then just dine and leave.

While the restaurant is designed with modern creativity and Japanese authenticity, the food goes parallel with the creative theme, drawing a wide range of starter, sushi, don, noodles and set in the giant menu to suit even the most discerning palate.

Tairyo Sashimi (RM73.80)
A medley of sashimi including salmon, tuna, tako on a bed of ice. Summerkid enjoy having the fresh, buttery smooth tuna.

Smoked Salmon Cheese Rice Set (RM28.80)
For those who visit Tokyo Kitchen with a hungry stomach, it is recommended to go for their rice set. Our Smoked Salmon Cheese Rice Set is satisfyingly good, complete with chawamushi, salad, tofu, miso soup and rice topped over with hearty portion of salmon.

Salmon Cheese Roll (RM24.80)
Crabstick, omelette and cucumber rolled within Japanese rice, topped with salmon and cheese, then torched to get a savoury burnt flavour. A contrast of refreshing filling with creamy outer munch.

Tokyo Kitchen Special Roll (RM24.8
A special maki that Tokyo Kithcen proud of, ingredients and flavours loaded. Deep fried ebi is rolled within sushi rice, crown with unagi and mango slice for a fruity twist.

Long Salmon Sushi (RM6.30)
Apart from the Dinasour Sushi, Tokyo Kitchen innovation goes on with their Long Salmon Sushi, a piece of sushi where the salmon topping is three times longer than the rice. A good treat for those who loves more topping than rice.

Chocolate Lava Cake (RM9.80)
Chocolate Lava Cake proves to be be better, our cup of tea. Moist, chocolaty brownie encase with warm, melted chocolate, gracefully ooze out once cut through.

Green Tea Tofu Cake (RM9.80)
Subtle, soft green tea tofu set off by a layer of crumbly biscuit at the bottom. Light and easy to eat, but a bit too mushy to our liking.

Tokyo Kitchen Pineapple Lemon Soda (RM8.80)
Wash down with Tokyo Pineapple Lemon Soda, a colourful drink with sweet, tangy and fizzy concoction.

Mixed Fruit Tea (RM.580)
