Kimi-Ya Japanese Restaurant New Menu 2018 Old Klang Road Kuala Lumpur

Affordable Premium Quality Japanese Dishes - Kimi-Ya Japanese Restaurant @Old Klang Road.


It is a norm that quality seasonal Japanese food is very pricier; the price is due to the way the food arrives in Malaysia which is usually air-flown. Nowadays, we are a little bit luckier in that many Japanese restaurants has started to bring the seasonal ingredients to Malaysia for us to taste the fine quality of these items.

At Kimi Ya Japanese Restaurant which is located at G-2, Avantas Residences, 162 Jalan Klang Lama, Kuala Lumpur for the month of May is serving these delicacies to its customers which will not burn a hole in your wallet.


There are a number of seasonal fish that will be available at Kimi-Ya among them are the Leather Jacket, Scorpion Fish, Gurnard, Ren-Kodai, Isaki, King Crab and more.


Among my favourite for the upcoming promotion is the Kagoshima Wagyu (120 grams). These prized cuts are air flown in from Japan. Kimi-Ya Japanese Restaurant used to serving the Australian Wagyu Beef at its outlet but have now switched to serve the Japanese Wagyu for its patron to enjoy the quality, texture and taste which is much better although a little pricier.

Taraba Gani (Grilled King Crab with Salt) - Kimi-Ya Japanese Restaurant New Menu 2018 Old Klang Road Kuala Lumpur

We were served with one of the delicacies which are Taraba Gani (Grilled King Crab with Salt). What I like about Japanese food is to eat its natural taste of the King Crab. The meat was succulent with a nice natural salty taste which was enhanced by the simple grilling of the king crab.

Matsu Sashimi Moriawase - Kimi-Ya Japanese Restaurant New Menu 2018 Old Klang Road Kuala Lumpur

Talking about natural taste, the Matsu Sashimi Moriawase which has 7 Types is another good example of tasting the natural flavours of the ingredients; here we were served with Salmon, White Tuna, Amberjack and Tuna Belly, Scallop, Octopus and Pink Shrimp. You can really taste the freshness of the sashimi which has a nice soft texture.

Yaki Pirikara Edamame - Kimi-Ya Japanese Restaurant New Menu 2018 Old Klang Road Kuala Lumpur

Many of us fancy the edamame as a favourite snack before and after a meal; but at Kimi-Ya, the Chef has made a slight twist to this snack food which after boiling it; the edamame is slightly grill and tossed with chilli flakes. This dish is called the Yaki Pirikara Edamame.

Zaru Soba which is Cold Buckwheat Noodles served with Dipping Sauce - Kimi-Ya Japanese Restaurant New Menu 2018 Old Klang Road Kuala Lumpur

For me, I still love the Zaru Soba which is Cold Buckwheat Noodles served with Dipping Sauce. I really love the cold Soba which is also in-house made and dip into the special dipping sauce which we will add in the quail eggs, spring onion and wasabi. This is, in fact, the best way for me to enjoy this Cold Soba.
