Himawari Japanese Restaurant

This takes us a few weeks back, I'll continue with the Bangkok posts after this. So a few weeks ago, one of those TGIF nights, my colleagues and I decided to grab dinner and some drinks to celebrate the end of another week. They mentioned something about going to "Japan Club" and I thought it was those clubbing joints with loadsa Japanese? Like Thai Club or something... that was until I found out it's a place in KL where all the Japs in Msia gather for activities.

Japan Club is located in Taman Seputeh, next to the Federal Highway and nearby Mid Valley. The premise houses all things Japanese, from salons to Japanese language classes, a Japanese restaurant and martial arts class. You need to be a Japanese to be granted admission in the premise though one can also apply for a supplementary membership if there's an endorsement from a member.

Our friend, Kon Soon is half Chinese- half Jap, he's a member of the club.

We started off with a complimentary appetizer which includes some pickles, lotus and braised radish.

Poteto Salada- RM7

I have always been a fan of all things potato so this poteto salada (potato salad) is quite a hit with me :)

Katsu Curry- RM18

Ronald had his favourite Katsu Curry and he was all thumbs up for it. Japanese curry has never been my regular Japanese dish, but I might give it a try next time...

Shake Don SP- RM29

Chirashi Sushi- RM30

We had 2 sets of sashimies to share and they were expectedly good. Fresh thick colorful cuts. The chawanmushi that came with the sets were also amazingly yummy.

Futo Maki Special- RM30

The Futo Maki Special was generous in size and has an assorted of raw fish in it- somewhat like having the Chirashi Sushi set in a maki. Everyone gave their thumbs up for this.

It was definitely a wholesome Japanese dinner and a great way to end the working week.

Say hi guys! You've made it to Live to Eat or Eat to Live!
