Watami Japanese Casual Restaurant is our new love. Together with my Partners-in-crime, we hopped over Pavilion KL for a casual evening dinner.
Kari Kari Pasta (RM 5.90) ｶﾘｶﾘﾊﾞｽﾀ
A great snack to go with beer. Though we didn't order any alcoholic drink, we find ourselves keep munching it.
Mum always nags, do not play with your food! But, you are allowed to do so here!
Tsubuse Mentai Potato Salad (RM 12.90)
Provided with the masher, you have got to mash everything up to form the potato salad. Do mash it evenly to create a well balance taste in every spoonful of your mashed potato.
Tokujo Irodori Sushi (RM 20.90)
Assorted sushi made of salmon, unagi (eel), tuna. The ingredients were fresh and superb.
Hiroshima Okonomiyaki (Rm 16.90)
It is a flavourful Japanese Pancake that made of batter and with ingredients such as shrimps, meat and lots of cabbages. The cooked okonomiyaki is then drizzled with sweet okonomiyaki sauce, aonori (seaweeds), mayonnaise and finally tipped with lots of bonito flakes. The bonito flakes danced prettily while the pancake was still hot. It is quite a filling one as noodles is part of the ingredients too! Great for sharing.
Kushiyaki Moriawase (RM 16.90)
Assorted skewers that come with beef with springs onions and asparagus, chicken thighs, wings, and soft bones. Sadly, it was not as good as the one I had in Yashiki. Lack of smoky fragrant taste and not char enough.
Unagi Kamameshi (RM 19.90)
This eel pot rice is not something ordinary. You will have to wait for about 20 minutes for the rice to cook.
Once the rice is cooked, add in the lovely unagi.
The rice was really flavourful as it was infused with dashi, mushrooms, and essences from the other ingredients.
Gyuniku Sukiyaki Nabe (Rm 24.90)
This is the Japanese hot pot where juicy pink beef slices are part of their main ingredients.
Allow it to shimmer with other condiments such as shitake and enokitake, tofu, chinese cabbage and leeks. When the soup is starting to boil, stir an egg into the broth to create a smoother texture.
Watami offers an extensive menu. from appetizers to sushi and sashimi, and yakitori and grilled stuff to ramen and rice, and finally desserts. We will return for more...
