Kuala Lumpur - Great Japanese Flavors at Kuriya

klyeoh | Sep 14, 201106:58 AM

I was a regular at Kuriya's original Singapore outlet for years. So it was a great pleasure that, just as I was being re-located to KL, I found their KL branch in close proximity to where I'm staying.

Sixth trip there in the last coiuple of months - every meal had been absolutely satisfying - no exceptions this evening. The grilled unagi (perfect!) rested on a bed of the best-tasting yakimeshi I'd had in a loooong while: the fat, short-grain rice fried till fragrant, yet moist, with flavorsome little gems of scrambled egg generously strewn throughout.

The special miso soup contained fat, just-cooked slivers of salmon - again, perfectly-timed cooking. The umami flavors of the dashi used for the soup, further heightened with a double-whammy of good miso & seaweed made this simply pleasurable. Beautifully presented with carrot & daikon flowerettes.

Loved the simple yet elegant furnishings, and the very efficient, attentive & friendly service - definitely my go-to place for Japanese food in KL :-)
