#Foodpost: Sashimi done right at Kimi-Ya Japanese Restaurant @ Old Klang Road

Many apologies to my readers as I was very busy for the month of November as there were quite a number of occasions that I have to attend to which occupied most of my time. Finally! I'm back at my Food & Travel platform to update you guys on my recent food adventure.

Recently, my family and I stumbled upon this cozy and comfortable Japanese restaurant along Old Klang Road - Kimi-Ya. I did not know about the existence of this little eatery until a few of my friends who told me about it and actually gave great comments and review on it!

Served with a cup of welcome drink during our visit :) FYI, the welcome drink is only available for dinner times only.

Here at Kimi-Ya they practice an open kitchen similar to other Japanese restaurant for its patrons to witness their food being prepared freshly before their eyes! You can even opt to dine by it if you like :)

Look at the pinky fresh cuts there! Looking at this now makes me drool.

We started off by sharing a plate of Kimi-Ya Soft Shell Crab salad

Consist of generous amount of greens, tomatoes, cucumbers, crispy fish skins, soft shell crab and fish roe for a tinge of saltiness. You can opt to choose either sesame, wafu or yuzu dressing. Of course I went for my all time favourite which is the sesame dressing!

Next up, Matsu Sashimi Mariowase! A meal at a Japanese Restaurant will never be complete without a platter of mariowase! We chose this mid range mariowase platter as we would decided to try some other dishes as well. As mentioned earlier, I was totally satisfied with their Sashimi cuts here at Kimi-Ya as i felt that they served a generous piece here compared to other Japanese restaurants. I felt the satisfaction that I was looking for when having my Sashimi here! 

What's even better here is that, they do also served fresh wasabi (upon request) where patrons would be able to grate it themselves, (P/S: There's a slight charges for the fresh wasabi). In my honest opinion, I personally love the taste the fresh wasabi compared to the usual wasabi that is found in any other restaurants. I can actually taste the freshness and the bits of the plant. If you've never tried a fresh wasabi before, it'll definitely worth a try!

Oh! You can also show the waiter this picture of the wasabi during your order just in case to avoid any miscommunications.


Tuna belly

White tuna

Yellow tail

We also specially ordered this Honmaguro Toro Sashimi which is their November promotion at RM76.00 for 5 pieces & RM48.00 for 3 pieces. Valid from 1st November until 30th November 2017. I especially love this "buttery" & "melt-in-the-mouth" piece of protein! Be sure to try it whenever you drop by :) 

We later on ordered some rice bowls to fill up our tummy after all the fresh goodness :)

Mentai Tama Don

Consist of Japanese rice bowl topped with omelette, and seared marinated roe mayonnaise. A very flavourful bowl of goodness here if you're looking for a good and satisfying rice meal. Portion is good too.

Unagi Cheese Roll

Consist of omelette, cucumber roll with roasted eel, cream cheese and sesame topping

Bara Chirashi Don

Those looking for a healthy bowl, you can have this rice topped with cubed assorted Sashimi.

Wagyu Fried Rice

Another "out of the menu" item apart from the fresh wasabi mentioned earlier, would be this wagyu fried rice. Consist of fragrant rice with generous amount of wagyu beef pieces topped with garlic.

Do present this picture of Wagyu fried rice upon order too!

Zaru Inaniwa Udon

Cold thin wheat noodle served with dipping sauce

Toro Salmon Pirikara Miso Nabe

Fresh salmon belly and assorted vegetables hot pot with soybean paste based soup. I personally prefer my Sashimi to be raw and not cooked as I feel as it gets cooked, the texture of the sashimi get a little harder and rough which I dont really fancy. But hey! that's just my personal preference. However, the soup and the combination of the vegetables and mushrooms are great!

Finally, for some desserts! 

Matcha Shiratama Zenzai

Matcha ice cream with red bean paste and glutinous rice balls on the side.

Abekawa Mochi

Homemade rice cake with red bean and soybean powder.

Mizu Shinzen Mochi

Japanese raindrop cake served with brown sugar syrup and soybean powder.

In a nutshell, Kimi-Ya is a mid range Japanese restaurant which serve one of the best Sashimi around Klang Valley so far that I've found. The ambience and surrounding there is very comfortable and cozy best suited for celebrations and gatherings between friends and family. If you're looking to enjoy some good Japanese Cuisine with moderate price, this is a HIGHLY RECOMMENDED place for you!

Here's my personal rating,
Ambience: Great! Perfect for gathering and celebrations especially in groups
Food: 9/10 - Highly satisfied
Service: 7/10 - Great service
Pricing: Moderate - expect an approximate of RM50 per person
