Watami Japanese Casual Restaurant @Pavilion

Another famous restaurant from Singapore has making their mark at Klang Valley. This time is a Japanese Casual Restaurant which is known as Watami. This restaurant has replaced Sakae Sushi which has been closed down.
Japanese Casual restaurant means they are inserting a western style cuisine into a Japanese cuisine. So it is not an authentic and pure Japanese restaurant.
Dashimaki Mentai @RM15.90++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 3/5
Price: 1/5
Overall: 3/5 - It is a rolled omelette which is dressed with mayo and served in a hot plate. Very interesting dish but after the third bite, I feel quite queasy because of the tasteless egg which highly depends on the mayo for the taste. The most ridiculous thing is this egg cost RM15.90.

Salmon Zukushi @RM32.90++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - Their rigid sashimi moriawase menu forced me to settle with just salmon combination only. Their salmon is delicious but it is just a little too expensive.

Chicken Katsu @RM19.90++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 4/5
Overall: 4/5 - This is a very interesting way to serve a chicken fillet. Rice at the bottom and mixed with the delicious chicken and egg. This dish becomes the best among all.

Jikasei Pudding @RM7.90++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 5/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 4/5 - This is a must order dessert. Luckily, I still order it even though I was very full after all the meals above. The tenderness, sweetness and the way it slowly melts in your mouth is very well adjusted to pleasure my taste bud. Excellent!

Magnum Cafe @IOI City Mall, Putrajaya

Outlook: 5/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 4/5 - It contains of cashew meringue, Mascarpone cream, honey balsamic cream served with white chocolate dipped vanilla Magnum topped with freeze dried raspberries and fresh strawberries. My suggestion is to mix them all together including the ice cream itself otherwise by eating the ice cream alone will be too sweet. Once you mixed them all together, the magic comes. The sensational taste of creamy, crunchy, a little sourish kick and sweetness combining all together to create a wonderful ice cream dessert. Definitely is a must order dessert when you are there.

Tamarind Springs @ Jalan TAR, Ampang

Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - It is also known as their signature Symphony of Starters, which takes you across the breadth of Indochinese cuisine with Vietnamese shrimp crystal rolls, lemongrass prawns, Cambodian-style deep-fried shrimp cakes and minced chicken on cinnamon sticks. All served with a variety of piquant sauces. The plate is just nice for 2 pax but the price is too expensive for that small portion.

Outlook: 3/5 Creativity: 5/5 Taste: 4/5 Price: 3/5 Overall: 3/5 - If you think that coconut soup should be a milky soup, then you are wrong. This is a chicken tomyam clear soup with coconut meat in it. Very delicious and creative way to make it. The coconut meat is the highlight of the entire soup. It just gave the soup an extra coconut fragrance in it and of course, they are edible. Do not worry, the soup is not too spicy.
