Dine With Me Weekend Japanese Dining at Tatsu Japanese Restaurant, InterContinental Kuala Lumpur – This is definitely one of the best sharing platter Japanese dinner we’ve ever had in Kuala Lumpur by far. It is unique, combining multi-ingredients, various cooking techniques into sharing dishes with different textures, colours, flavours to satiate your palate.
We stepped back a little when we first looked at the price but after the giving it a try, we are glad that it really worth every penny we paid for, or in fact, beyond. From the idea, concept, presentation, quality and portion, everything is worth-mentioned.
Priced at RM888, Dine with Me is actually a 4-course dinner on sharing basis, putting together a total of 28 dishes separated into appetisers, seafood main course, meat main course and dessert. This special offer is available only on Saturday and Sunday dinner time at Tatsu.
Portion is huge, ideally serves 4 but we personally feel that it can feed up to 6 person, unless you are real big eaters then 4 is just nice. You might feel that RM888 is expensive but as you break down the price, each pay only RM222 or less. Not yet mention there are premium sashimi, Wagyu beef, beef cheek with red wine, unagi and so forth. You probably have to pay higher if you ordered in ala-carte in other Japanese restaurant. We visited in 4, but already full to the brim at the beginning of 3rd course.
A big WOW once this Sashimi platter was served, and continued till the end of the meal. Every platter is a feast to the eyes and tummy.
Tuna, kanpachi, salmon, hotate, akagai for the sashimi; then Ikura Sushi, Avocado sushi, Anago Sushi, Uni Sushi and Oyster Mayonnaise – Look at the vibrant colour combinations, along with top notch freshness and quality!
Get your camera ready to capture the photograph-worthy “foggy” moments created using dry ice.
Chef suggested us to begin with Oyster Mayonnaise, because it is freshly baked and served hot. Bite deeply and enjoy the creaminess on top, pairing perfectly with plump, juicy oyster nestled within.
Sashimi in Tatsu Japanese Restaurant, InterContinental is air flown from Japan every Tuesday and Friday, so come by in the weekend to get your favourite cut of raw fish! Our favourite? Kanpachi of course!
Anago sushi is the crowd favourite, while Summerkid likes his Uni Sushi most, he enjoying every bit of the smooth, creamy uni with briny taste of ocean over sushi rice.
Hamaguri Miso Soup – Japanese clam miso soup with tofu, spring onion and wakame was served together with Sashimi Platter. Tummy warming soup aside, those “big fat” Japanese clam are real good stuff.
Here came the first main course. Such a huge plate! Unagi Shiro Sakamushi, Tarabayaki, Sake Shioyaki and Teriyaki, Ebi Tempura, Shirao with Kakiage, Broccoli Tempura, Yamaimo Tempura, Asparagus Tempura, all looked so tempting!
Sake Shioyaki and Teriyaki was that received least attention from us at first but we were wrong, it was so delicious! Salt-grilled salmon with moist retained, not rough nor dry, further glazed with a layer of teriyaki sauce to enhance the overall flavours. Recomended!
Preparing Unagi Shiro Sakamushi is a laborious process, as it involved steaming and grilling the fish to ensure the best texture possible. Soft and fatty, rich in taste, another highly favourite dish that was polished clean in a jiffy.
Yay! Here come the star of all we have been waiting for long. Let’s welcome Wagyu sumiyaki with Himalayan Salt!
It is served with a mini charcoal fire stove, so we get to have some DIY BBQ fun right on our seats.
To enjoy it, take few pieces of wagyu beef slices and place in over the charcoal fire mini stove, slightly grilled it to medium rare at best. Then take a bit of Himalayan salt served aside and put on your beef. Lastly, indulge into the extra succulent meat with lovely marbling!
Other items on our 2nd main course consisted of Grilled Honey Chicken with Sudachi, Lamb Teppanyaki with Cheddar Cheese Aonori, Stewed Beef Cheek with Red Wine, Stewed Aigamo Rosu-ni with Julienne Carrot, Kyuri and Radish, Bacon with Fried Potato Roll, Mushroom Teppanyaki.
Lovely presentation, platter than bring smiles to meat lovers as it covers almost everything from chicken to duck, beef, and lamb.
Other items are cooked but you can continue your grilling fun and heat them up on the stove as well. Haha we did so. Can’t get over the fun of grilling and listening to the sizzling of meat.
Lamb Teppanyaki was surprisingly tender, minimal gamey smell and beautifully laced with char-grilled aroma at the edges. Even Summergirl who always try to stay away from lamb dishes gave a thumbs up for this.
Stewed Beef Cheek with Red Wine is awesome too. Braised for long hours, the meat is literally melt-in-mouth as you bite lightly, deeply infused with flavours of sauces, plus hints of red wine. Superb.
Finally, dessert time! A trio combination of Grand Marnier Ice Souffle, Green Tea Haagen Dazs Ice Cream, Mochi. Just nice to end the meal right.
Grand Marnier Ice Souffle is the most interesting among all. It doesn’t really taste like souffle, akin to ice cream texture with pleasing egg aroma. How to do it? Chef secret recipe hahaha.
It was a really wonderful experience with Dine with Me dinner. All food are up to expectation with no compromise on quality. Pamper yourself with air-flown sashimi, oversized seafood and meat platter, then exquisite dessert at Tatsu InterContinental Kuala Lumpur Hotel! Contact +603 2782 6118 for booking and reservation.
