Watami Japanese Casual Restaurant @ Pavilion KL

Yay, dinner time!


いただきます
Itadakimasu...


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) カリカリバスタ
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...

Eat Only Lar! said...

Wow, so many nice new Japanese restaurants. Haha, it's nice how they serve their potato salad, seems fun. And the kari kari pasta sounds interesting too! I've never seen anything like that before. =)

Somewhere in Singapore said...

Japanese foods, my favourite...

Thristhan said...

Wow, the food looks extremely delicious, but the price seems a little on the high side. For a high class place I guess it's explainable.

Baby Sumo said...

The kari-kari pasta looks very unique - taste like kari or not? :P

J2Kfm said...

Level 4? Hmm, so this is not at the Tokyo Street end? Did not notice this place, but looks like a cool concept. Closest resemblance would be Takahashi I guess; the one at Tokyo St.

eat only lar,
all brand new! you should try. pavilion kl has got lots of new places to check out!
hehe, both potato salad and kari kari pasta are interesting. kari kari pasta is a well seasoned snack that go great with drinks


somewhere in singapore,
me too me too!


tristhan,
delicious and i find the price is reasonable in this complex.
we all paid less than rm30 each for all of these.

ai wei said...

baby sumo,
haha, no curry taste e.
but it is something great to munch on. love it


james,
yep, at level 4.
haven't try out takahashi but i think it is a bit different from takahashi as takahashi serves mainly pasta. i think takahashi's concept same as pasta zanmai or the other one in sunway?!
