Ozeki Tokyo Cuisine @ Menara TA1, Jalan P. Ramlee, KL
The fusion of Japanese food with western style and presentation. How would this hybrid of culinary passion turn out? Take a look for yourself 😉
Bitter gourd and dried Bonito flakes
This lil’dish caught me off
guard gourd, as it was surprisingly crunchy and refreshing, not what I was expecting it to be! Which is a good thing 😉
Sea urchin served in between scallops with salmon roe.
The taste of the scallop was very fresh, however i personally didn’t quite like the taste of sea urchin. Kinda spoilt it for me..
What else can be said? they’re fresh oysters 😛
Soft shell crab salad
Mediocre and slightly on the dry side, so pretty disappointing despite looking fairly appetizing.
Chopped raw tuna dressed with raw egg and Korean seaweed
Strong taste of spring onions, almost overpowering but still an excellent combination though a little heavy for a starter. Maybe for those with a big appetite! 😛
Smashed sweet potato salad mixed with salmon flakes topped with salmon roes and salmon skin.
I just love food that looks so appealing, comes exactly like its picture AND most importantly tastes as good as it looks!!! I seriously adore salmon roes! They tickle your palates to orgasm.
Pan fried Foie Gras with XO sauce
Two huge pieces of lavish foie gras with broccoli and dried chilli. Might as well call it Kung Pou Foie Gras.
The most generous portion i’ve ever seen. But the seasoning is a tad too overpowering, not to mention very very very salty too. It becomes very cloying. Not the best foie gras i’ve tried though not the worst either.
Ozeki special maki
The king of all makis. Soft shell crab, Unagi and Ebi Tempura all in one (ok lah several) little parcel. Each and every mouthful brings out a whole medley of exquisite seafood wonders. This is one of the highlights of Ozeki’s menu!
Matsuzaka beef shabu shabu
OMC. It’s. The. Most. Freaking. Expensive. Beef. Ever.
Matsuzaka beef sumiyaki (charcoal grill)
How else but the best way to serve Matsuzaka.
Spicy soft shell crab and grilled cod.
A favourite combination of mine. Spicy yet not to spicy soft shell crab with a nicely grilled cod that isn’t overcooked. Thoroughly enjoyable, really savoured every last bite!
Black sesame ice cream
The texture is so smooth, and the rich aroma of black sesame lingers in your palate for quite some time.
Strawberry and mango panna cotta with black sugar syrup. This was suuuuuuuuper naish! I wanted some cottage cheese with my meal, so I plucked this heavenly dish of goodness from the a la
carte curd menu.
Green tea Tiramisu
As naish as the panna cotta was, this delightful morsal was the perfect ending for a wonderful meal, couldn’t have asked for anymore!! or could i? 😉
Now where’s my Kenko Diet Plum. 😀
arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr why must you post these kinda post and me comin in when i’m sooo hungry……
om the food damn nice!!!
i like the fusion style there. most of the food taste good but not too sure for my stomach. 🙂
I guess the cost of the meal in that restaurant is gonna burn a hole in my purse. I would prefer sushi than the real Japanese food.
how much for all that? i wannaknowcheesemeplease!
OMG! i am so hungry! *drools*
thats heck a lot of food for 1 sitting! O_o
wow..i’m hungry now
Just out of curiousity….how much was the beef anyway?
Is this buffet restaurant?
there seems to be foie gras everywhere in KL and I’ve search high and low and haven’t tasted it in melboune…. all the expensive restaurant are always fully booked!
i’m still waiting……..
maybe i’ll go to cafe cafe when i get to KL? or where do u think’s got the best foie gras?
new yorker: Nope. Set lunch and a la curd. 🙂
kelly: Cafe cafe has the bestestest ever.

Mind to tell me how much is the entire bills? Cheesie, I got a pink scooter…. I feel too girlie lah! I’m an old lady! It will be perfect for you.
holy cheese crust. that.is.SUPER.expensive.
Must be ultra expensive 😉 wouldn’t mind knowing the bill and actually go there the next time I drop by the area.
how many of you guys were actually there? thats such a huge order! even for 4! i wanna be a cheesie too!!! if get to eat all those stuff…….
let me guess… she’s not the one who pay the bill?
Ozeki is my favourite japanese restaurant. The food is always consistent and very delicious. I have ABSOLUTELY no complaints at all and the service is always really prompt, timing of food that comes to the table is immaculate. No rushing and gives customers time to savour the flavours and freshness. It’s reasonably priced too for the quality you get. Well done!! 10 thumbs up!!
greedyguys: thank you for your comment. I love Ozeki too but i prefer traditional and authentic Japanese food to fusion. have you tried Kampachi Equatorial? (avoid the one in Pavilion)
yes kampachi…old timer, consistently good. don’t really go there much and yes i heard about the one in Pavillion…: D I like traditional jap cuisine too but this fella’s pretty smart with his italian fusion. I like it.
