Nishiki Japanese Restaurant, Kota Kinabalu

After a great experience at Nagasaki Japanese Restaurant, I carry a higher hope to try another Japanese restaurant in Kota Kinabalu. So I made a visit at Nishiki Japanese Restaurant which is located just a street away from Nagasaki Japanese Restaurant
I find that this restaurant has quite a lot of private rooms compare to other Japanese restaurant in Kota Kinabalu. The decoration and the furniture are a little old-fashioned in my opinion.
This is not a small cup but is a bowl. This is the first time I am having my green tea in a bowl. The green tea is chargeable at RM2.00++/pax and it is refillable.
Sashimi Moriawase @RM80.00++
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 3/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - Only the salmon and the butter fish are fresh. As for the others, they are not fresh at all and immerse unpleasant smell when I was chewing on it.

Chawan Mushi @RM12.00++
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 3/5  
Overall: 3/5 - This is the best dish among all. I love the smooth and tender egg which is so delicious that melts into your mouth gently. 

Cha Soba @RM19.50++
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 2/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 2/5 - Cha Soba which I hardly taste any green tea flavor in it. Apart of that, the soba sauce is not impressive at all to bring up the taste of the dull soba.

Australian Beef Steak (150gm) @RM27.00++
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 3/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 2/5 - Not really impressive at all to leave any memorable moment into our mind with the taste. 

Overall, I am not recommending this restaurant because their quality is poor and the price is higher than Nagasaki Japanese Restaurant.

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.
