Kikyo Japanese Restaurant

>> Wednesday, August 26, 2009

Date: 21 August 2009, Friday
Venue: Kikyo Japanese Restaurant, Bandar Puteri Puchong
Occasion: LK's birthday celebration
Overall comment: A place with nice ambiance & fairly delicious food. I wasn't too impressed with the bento set. I heard that their noodles are not too bad though. Price-wise, it's actually reasonable, but the quality just didn't make the mark in my opinion.


The Menu

Neat set
"Love at first bite"? Nope, I beg to differ...

Friday's Promotion: Rm2.00 (usual price RM7.00/roll) for a California Roll Temaki

Soft Shell Crab Temaki (RM8.00/roll)

Inari Sushi/Sweet Beancurd Roll (RM6.00/serving)
LK said it was quite nice.

Unagi Temaki (RM14.00/serving)
Looks very impressive. Not too sure if it tastes excellent, but from the look on LK's face, it passed la...not a "heavenly experience"...

Koebi Karaage/Deep Fried Shrimps (RM8.00/serving)
Everyone was excited for this dish, I've no idea why. To me, after trying it out, I felt that it was nothing that interesting...it's crispy & light, but there isn't any "umph" to it...

Gekikara Ramen (RM15.00/bowl)
KK calls this the "kikilala" noodles cos he just can't seem to remember its actual name *lol* Nothing spectacular...

"Ki" Bento Set (RM18.00/set) - soft shell crabs + teriyaki chicken
This "Ki" bento promotion comprises of 2 main dishes in the bento, 1 bowl of rice, & 1 bowl of miso soup. The portion was moderately generous for the price paid, but the soft shell crab was a total disappointment. It wasn't crispy enough & the crabs were soaked in oil *bleagh* I reckon the oil wasn't hot enough, plus we all agreed that the batter wasn't sufficient to coat the crabs for frying.

"Kyo" Bento Set (RM25.00/set) - Unagi, Soft Shell Crabs, & Fried Dumplings
The "Kyo" bento promotion comes with 3 main dishes in the bento, 1 bowl of rice, & 1 bowl of miso soup. For an additional RM3.00, you can get a bowl of chawamushi (Japanese steamed egg custard)

Chawanmushi (RM3.00 with the bento set)

Fried Rice
For the bento sets, you can actually opt for white rice or fried rice. Sadly, we felt that the rice wasn't the type of Japanese rice that we usually get at Japanese restaurants. I reckon due to the economy crisis, this restaurant has mixed their rice with local rice. PerutBesi pulls a long face for the rice quality!

"Kyo" Bento Set (RM25.00/set) - Soft Shell Crabs, Beancurd, & Deep-fried Salmon in batter

"Ki" Bento Set (18.00/set) - Soft Shell Crab & Unagi
This was what I ordered. I wasn't very satisfied with the overall of this bento. Perhaps this is what you get for the price you pay...?

Promotion: Ice Cream (RM1.00/scoop)

The ice cream wasn't fantastic. I reckon in terms of Japanese ice cream, nothing could beat Genji's (PJ Hilton)...for now ;) But the gang still said it's good...so you need to try it out for yourself :D

Since our lunch hour was just 2 hours, & we were rushing for time, we had the cake cutting back in office after work :) The cake was very cute & just nice in size.
