Christmas has just passed, so, how do you all spend it? I had a good one in fact, yes, again it’s in KL. Well, this is more of a remembrance of what we had spent last year, especially with the Mama Mia’s musical stage was on the hit last year.

1st stop was lunch in Starhill Gallery on Christmas Eve… a sumptuous lunch with Abalone Sashimi as appetizer which is on the house some more. That gives all of us a indulge feeling. Not to forget that 2nd plate of Abalone Sashimi is only costs RM38 per piece, all Abalones are imported from Chile.

Next, followed by a variety of sashimi, with the range of White Tuna, Red Tuna and Salmons. Look at the size of these assorted sashimi… I would have to comment that I doubt I could find such generous sashimi in Penang.

Grilled items like Mackerel, Salmons, and Unagi (Eel). It’s juicy and tender.

Fried items like Tempura, we have Prawns and Soft Shell Crabs. The prawns are fresh and it’s big in sizes too, and that goes to the crabs as well.

Teppanyaki items are the butter garlic fried prawns and salmons.

Other items that we had were Teriyaki Chicken, Japanese Soft Tofu, Temaki (Handroll Tuna & Salmon) and Green Peas (Edamame 枝豆 えだまめ).

With all the food that we had, honestly, we could easily skip dinner. We were so full, … well that’s not the end, we were served Green Tea Ice Cream with Red Beans, and also assorted local fruits, papaya, watermelon, honeydew and pineapple.

Though I heard of people commented the service and food are lousy, but honestly, it was superb to us. The service was attentive, and the food serving is value for money too.

To all my readers... I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a
Happy Happy New Year!!
