Sushi Kappo Miyasaka 宮坂割烹

2010_04_24 Miyasaka 044a 2010_04_24 Miyasaka 048a

I fell in love with this place and had visited them continuously for 2 weeks. What makes me have such drastic reaction? Not because of their ambience in the surrounding, but the food that is captured my heart completely.

It was basically like love at first sight kind of feeling. And that feeling really makes you feel like seeing them every now and then and once you don’t see them you will miss them. It’s the exact feeling that I have after my 1st visit.

Don’t understand?? Never mind… let me elaborate more. This is a 5 year old Japanese Restaurant, the chef is the owner of the restaurant, the place is simple and doesn’t have the exclusive deco in the restaurant, and even the food menu is simple yet extensive. The chef was the head chef from many renowned 5 star hotels in town. You bet the food must be authentic; in fact, it gives me many surprises when we first came last week.

Even the salad dressing is definitely different from many places, what’s the different is they are using Wafu Dressing for the salad, and it definitely gives us a refreshing kind of feeling.

Some sets are come with salad, chawanmushi and ice cream. What’s other serves on Miso Soup was merely tofu, but what Sushi Kappo Miyasaka surprises us was Miso Soup with Clams cooked in it. It even makes the soup tastier.

Chicken Seiro Gohan (RM30), that’s what we have for our 1st visit. It’s a chopped grilled chicken laid on finely chopped egg with underneath steamed rice. This set is served in a dim-sum basket, and that’s the 2nd surprises that we have for the visit.

I couldn’t resist but keep having a few spoons from this little basket. Yet, I have this Tempura Soba (RM26) which is definitely makes me mouthwatering. Soup base is clear and it tastes sweet. I just can’t believe the prawn tempura isn’t oily at all, and it’s crunchy.

Followed the next visit recently, I have another surprises from Mayasaka-san. This time, I indulged myself the Kaisen Don 海鮮丼 (RM48). When served, I saw an art on the platter; it really makes me feel so happy and excited to have this. Looking at the prawn that lined on the assorted sashimi, I just couldn’t believe it could be just so beautiful.

This time what serves on the Miso Soup isn’t Clams anymore but some vegetables like onions and eggplant. That makes the soup healthier and tastier. I’d just loved the creative idea that the chef had in these foods.

Unagi Seiro Gohan (RM35), same as Chicken Seiro Gohan way of serving. And it’s definitely gives many unagi lovers the best satisfaction.

With so many surprises, that has proven what our friend had told us before, we should pay a visit to Sushi Kappo Miyasaka, cuz, it will not let us down.

Truly recommended place for Japanese food lovers!

Been a while since I've been back -last visit the food took forever to arrive, but when it did, it was exquisite!! I guess they're definitely not letting up on the quality but can't imagine the attention to detail to go down well with diners in a hurry!

Hi Allenooi, yes, it's a bit pricey, but the food is superb!

Hi Annonymous, my apology, I can't recall is it Halal.

Jim Foo said...

Hey guys, i know the owners, they are really Japanese from Japan, not some fake shit from Sushi King.

So go and try if you haven't, you wont regret it.
