KOUZU Bangsar - Modern Japanese Dining

KOUZU BANGSAR - A Touch Of Modern Japanese Dining

Bangsar Food: KOUZU Bangsar

Following the success of Kouzu TTDI, the management has decided to open its' second outlet in Bangsar. Kouzu Bangsar which is located at 19, Jalan Telawi 3, Bangsar Baru, 59100 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Bangsar Food: KOUZU Bangsar  Dining Room

Kouzu which means a compilation of good deeds and good fortune, while offering something new by bringing a sophisticated twist to the traditional Japanese restaurant. The ethos behind Kouzu is to deliver authentic flavour of the east combined with modern and progressive Japanese cuisine at an affordable price.

KOUZU Bangsar Bar Watering Hole

From the outside, one can easily be mistaken Kouzu Bangsar; as another bar restaurant which is famous in this Bangsar area. Once you open up the restaurant menu; you will see a menu that has a full list of Japanese tapas and other popular dishes.

KOUZU Bangsar Bar Grafitti and Manga Wall Art

The sharp coloured character of the Japanese manga graffiti on the side wall gives a bold statement of welcome to its guest. There is a twist to the Japanese dishes served at Kouzu Bangsar as the Chef has added some creativity and twist to some of these dishes among them are as follows; 

Yasai Heritage Salad @KOUZU Bangsar Bar

Our review started with an order of the Yasai Heritage Salad (RM17) - This multicoloured salad consists of Point Pennywort, Cosmos Candatus, Point Selom, Sakura Ebi, Orange Yuzu, Grated Coconut with a Ponzu Vinaigrette dressing.

KOUZU Bangsar Bar Restaurant Asari Sakamushi

This is then followed by the Asari Sakamushi (RM22) - the soup has a strong mushroom taste which is from the truffle oil that was used to cook this dish. Usually, Japanese soup dishes are not served with a bread but here it is served with a toasted Bruschetta.

KOUZU Bangsar Bar Restaurant Blue Fin Tuna & Foie Gras

The next dish is the Blue Fin Tuna & Foie Gras (RM29).  This is a real classic example of marrying of an East Meets Wests dish. You would never have experienced this fusion. The Tuna was lightly an fried which still has the soft sashimi texture. The enclosed sauce is made out of apple chutney with unagi which went perfectly with both the ingredient. 

KOUZU Bangsar Bar Restaurant Gyoza Kaisen

The next appetiser is rather unique in a sense which is Gyoza Kaisen  (RM22). Japanese Gyoza filling is usually either chicken or pork meat, but very few would serve a filling of seafood. As a seafood lover thumbs up for this dish.

KOUZU Bangsar Bar Restaurant Avocado Miso Gratin

Another one of the special dishes is this simple looking Avocado Miso Gratin (RM26). This gratin is filled with seafood such as shrimp, scallop, crab stick and Ebiko with a strong hint of the mushroom and miso taste. 

KOUZU Bangsar Bar Restaurant Angel Hair Pasta

The next dish is a pasta dish which is called Angel Hair Pasta (RM22). I am not a real fan of pasta but this pasta which is served with creamy mentaiko roe that triggers my taste bud. The pasta is served in a roll and topped with caviar and Ebiko that gives this dish a special taste and texture.

KOUZU Bangsar Bar Restaurant Kouzu Don

For the rice dish, we were recommended to taste the Kouzu Don (RM29). This rice dish is served with a slice of grilled sirloin steak which is topped with a truffle teriyaki sauce. Other condiments in the Don; is the Onsen Tamago, Foie Gras, crispy garlic. Mix all the condiments and you have a uniquely flavoured Don.  

KOUZU Bangsar Bar Restaurant Salmon Kabuki Roll

For the sushi rolls, we were served 2 type; the first of which is the Salmon Kabuki Roll (RM18) which has ingredients such as sliced salmon, ebiko, foie gras, cucumber, caviar, chives, avocado pulp, wasabi mayo and teriyaki.

KOUZU Bangsar Bar Restaurant Umami Rolls

While the second sushi roll is the Umami Roll (RM20) which is also loaded with unagi, tatura cheese, ebiko, wasabi mayo and teriyaki.

KOUZU Bangsar Bar Restaurant Yakitori Selection

One of my favourite Japanese dishes is the Yakitori, At Kouzu Bangsar, you can order individual stick; We made an order of  Chicken Wing, Rack Of Lambs, Smoke Duck, Rock Lobster and King Mushroom. Nicely grilled with a light salty taste; it is perfect with a nice cold icy drink. There are many other types of meat, seafood and vegetable yakitori that you can order from the menu.

KOUZU Bangsar Bar Restaurant VVIP Private Dining Room

For a private dining experience, Kouzu Bangsar also has a VVIP room where you dine with your group of friends and guests.

I am not really a fan of fusion dishes as there are many failures to create a new taste but yet having the original taste in mind. At Kouzu Bangsar, I find the Chef creative use of premium ingredients together with the right condiment that makes Kouzu Japanese dishes really stand out.
