Dinner at Kampachi @ Plaza 33, Jaya 33 Petaling Jaya

Kampachi is quite a popular name in Japanese dining in Malaysia. Started as a Japanese restaurant in Equatorial Hotel in Kuala Lumpur, the Kampachi brand name now have total of 7 outlets in Malaysia. The Kampachi outlet in Jaya 33 is the latest addition boasting a seating capacity of 198 persons which features a stylish bar with several unique seating that can be rotated for privacy. Having numerous awards including five time Time Out Kuala Lumpur food awards for Japanese restaurant category does catch my attention to try. Looking thru the menu, there were many options for you to choose. The ingredient are said to be flown fresh from Tsukiji market in Tokyo. The popular meal selection here is omakase which is chef selection and their sunday lunch buffet.

Taste:8/10(Delicious. The soba and chirashi don set taste were good. The sashimi provided were fresh and the soba noodles were spongy and with wheat taste. However the rice does not perfect enough to earn the excellent level of this review. There is also lack of sesame seed to be mixed with soba noodles).
Price:3/10(Expensive. The menu selection were quite expensive. The toro sushi were priced at MYR55.00 which in my opinion is outrageous. The recommended omakase pricing were quite high as well at MYR250 and premium for MYR350. I choose the soba and chirashi don set instead as this is seen as the most reasonable option. This menu offers the mixture of rice, noodles, tempura and sashimi at a price of MYR54.00. I ordered Blushing Maiko cocktail as drink at MYR18.00 per glass. Their cocktail seems more reasonable when compared to their tea which is around the same price for a pot. Its a bit disappointed that this restaurant does not serve free green tea).

Soba and chirashi don set. The chirashi don comes with soft and delicious sashimi and prawn tempura. I chosen the cold soba option. Fruit of watermelon, honeydew, grape and pineapple.

Blushing Maiko cocktail. This cocktail is a mixture of sake nigori, white rum, grenadine and yuzu. This is a sour, slight sweet and with slight citrus flavour of yuzu cocktail.
