Kurata Japanese Restaurant @ Park Royal, KL ReviewThursday, March 12, 2015
Edomae style sushi is a must order when you visit Kurata. It features fresh raw fish, and cooked rice which is seasoned with vinegar.
Scallop Sushi which is so so fresh, freshness that I have not taste before. The sweetness of the scallop with the soft cooked rice when put in mouth is way too delicious beyond words can describe BUT they put wasabi on all their sushi which kill my appetite. I am not a wasabi fan, in fact I do not take wasabi at all. I would think it will be great if the staff ask the diner if they want it with wasabi. The chef explain that the raw seafood goes well with the wasabi thus they put it in every sushi but I find it taste best without wasabi for me. According to the rest blogger that present today they mentioned the raw fish is exceptionally fresh and the wasabi is very unique as it is imported all the way from Japan. Oh remember to visit them on Tuesday Wednesday or Friday as the freshest seafood are delivered to their restaurant on these two days.
Seafood Shabu Shabu, that comes with Angle shrimp, King Crab, Snow Crab and vegetables. Since this is fine dining restaurant, the staff will help to cook the food and serve to you once it is cook. Thus, the seafood is cooked to perfection. No need to worry on overcook which tend to happens when one is busy eating. Similar to the sushi, the seafood is very fresh and thus the soup is filled the sweetness from the seafood. The soup stock are entirely made with vegetable paste, I was surprise when i heard that. It taste as sweet as the soup boiled using meat or bones.
Earl Grey Crème Brûlée, a little disappointing I feel.
