Kimi-Ya Japanese restaurant at Avantas residence

Kimi-Ya is nestled at a busy area in Old Klang Road. Its at the ground floor of Avantas Residence, making it a quiet place for dining. Best of all, it comes with great good with affordable pricing.

There are really many choices in their menu to choose from. I know you cant wait to scroll down to see some of the menu snapshot I had, and I have decided not to post all so that you can go over yourself to explore the other quarter of the menu book. I don't think there is anymore excuse as in my favorite is not there, basically they cover most of the delicacies that you want when you are looking into Japanese cuisine. 

Kimi-Ya has been around very new, 3 months by now but after talking to the friendly Chef Khim whom has 16 years experience in Japanese food and dining, we are impressed on his passion on bringing the art of eating and healthy meal to his customer. He love to share at our review session; how to eat, what goes well with the dish, how to make the dish better and he tells us on what sauce to blends with. Best thing is Chef love to research and come out with lots of special sauces that blends well with each dishes.

This is the outlet from in and outside. Cozy lighting and you can see more beer for sale on display at the rack on the right side.

Hotate To Kinoko No Mentai Yaki RM 28
Who doesn't love Hotate Mentai Yaki? Haha. One of hubby favourite - and now my favourite too. This comes with not only scallop but mushroom too. 

KIMI-YA Sushi Moriawase

Hana Sashimi Moriawase ( 6 Types ) RM 90
I love the presentation of this. Very arty. There is an option for 4 or 7 types too. But I like this presentation the best.

KIMI-YA Special Roll RM36
Avocado , Tuna and cucumber roll


Salmon Kabuto Miso Nabe RM 23
The broth is good, but only if you are a fan of salmon broth. I still prefer the crunchy salmon skin or the grilled salmon. ;P



Goushuu No Wagyu Shabu Shabu
Japanese Wagyu Shabu Shabu


Love this Japanese curry Udon.  Worth a shout out. Not so spicy and kids love it. 



 Tenzaru Inaniwa Udon
Chef Kim show us on how to eat this dish. On the left there is a quail egg and once the plate is lifted, there is a bowl with sauce.
3 ways to dine:
- scoop some noodle and dip in the sauce and slurp it in your mouth.
- same with above step but this time take the noodle with wasabi
- next is pour the quail egg to the sauce, and repeat the above step. Quail egg creates that smooth and better texture of the sauce. 

Mizu Shingen Mochi RM 10
Isn't this cute? Its the Japanese Raindrop Cake served with brown sugar syrup and soybean powder. Kids definitely love this. 

Gelatimo ice cream. Love the chocolate most, Black Sesame , Macha and Yuzu Sherbet Ice Cream

Home made Sake. Great to pair with sashimi and other delicacies. Warm, sweet with the unique taste.

As promise, I am spoiling you for the "many-item-to-choose-for" partial menu of Kimi-Ya. Hope this would enable you  to see that your most sought after favorites is after all in an affordable price.





















Bon Appetite!

Toss For Prosperity at The Emperor, Dorsett Grand Subang.

Chinese New Year is not about receiving red packets, it’s really about getting together with the family! This Chinese New Year, join us at The Emperor, Dorsett Grand Subang and Toss for Prosperity! A full portion of Yee Sang starts from only RM98.00nett! We have FOUR types of Yee Sang for you and your family to savour and choose from! 

 #YeeSang #Prosperity #CNY #Dorsett #Food #AsianFood #Wealth#ChineseNewYear #Family #Reunion #Eat #Hotel #Subang #KL

 

Thanks Dorsett for inviting us for a reunion dinner and we had the Everlasting Prosperity Menu. If you are looking for private room for dining, look no further as they have 2 table private room that is away from the crowd for that family and business moment.



 
I love the yee sang as it comes with soft shell crab, which is unique compare to the norm like salmon fish. Taste good and not too sweet with the special sauce.


This double boil soup contains lots of ingredients which makes it very heavily taste.
Double Boiled Cordyceps Flowers With dry scallops, black chicken and fish maw (individual)
I would give credit to this dish, not too much on the presentation but the serving portion is big. Given half spring chicken for each pax is satisfying and the skin is crispy and marinated well.

Golden crispy roasted spring chicken with prawn crackers
Next, my favorite cod fish. Since this is a halal restaurant, it doesn't comes with lard oil, but the combination makes it taste good too. It comes with bean curd, so it's a double protein serving, and great for kids since there is not much bone. Easy to eat I would say. Thumbs up!

Steamed silver cod fish with Taiwanese bean curd and king soy sauce
Fresh water prawn served well, just right and not too cook. The meat texture is springy and nice. sauce is a perfection. Most of the prawn does comes with lots of "ha kou" too.

Steamed Fresh Water Prawns with golden garlic and egg white

Vegetable outlook is a bit plain and nothing much to shout about on the taste. 

Pan fried scallops stuffed with prawn paste

Here comes the glutinous rice. Delicious, only that we are too full to eat a lot of it, but it taste really good. The glutinous rice is well cook, aromatic and serving portion is a lot too. Great for big family.

Steamed lotus leaf and glutinous rice with diced chicken, yam and duck
CNY cake and mochi are yummy. Check out the CNY cake texture below:

Deep fried Chinese new year cake with mocha green tea paste
Chilled mango puree with mix fruits and sago

Overall, we enjoyed the dining at The Emperor. The food presentation may need to be improved, and the service as it is kind of slow on the day we dine as there is 2 staff that is off that day. Hopefully it can be improved.

What I like most about the private room dining is you can contained all kids in the room without having to disturb other customers and they can play around within your sight. I think this would be my concern if I were to dine for CNY.

Gong Xi Fa Chai! May the new year brings more happiness, luck, joy, best of luck and great fortune to all.
