First, we had fried oyster comes with halal okonomiyaki sauce. This fried oyster has golden brown crispy texture outside and plump yet juicy oyster meat inside. The sweetness of halal okonomiyaki sauce meets perfectly with the fried oyster, such an addictive taste!
Assorted sashimi comes with both halal certified wasabi and halal certified soy sauce. The fish was fresh and plump. Since the wasabi does not has strong spicy in the nose, it is very easy to have. Mix the soy sauce with wasabi and dip the fish a bit into the sauce then enjoy!
Fried shrimp dumpling with yuzu chili sauce
Fried shrimp dumpling with yuzu chili sauce was surprising as you can find in the picture below! It has fried noodle-like crispy outside and crunchy juicy shrimp dumpling inside, it let you have an adventurous feeling while having it! The yuzu chili sauce makes the taste way more tempting!
Ozaki beef fillet steak
After enjoying the three appetizers, here it comes the main dish, Ozaki beef fillet steak! The steak comes in 100 g and you can choose how you want to have it (medium rare, well-done). Basically it will be served in medium rare, but don’t hesitate to ask the staff if you want the meat more done! They will assist you kindly.
As mentioned above, Ozaki beef is the top branded wagyu in Japan with extremely soft melting sensation. This time we had it in medium rare. Once put it in the mouth, the softness texture and scent of the meat spread nicely inside the mouth.
The steak comes with some vegetables, hummus (mashed chickpeas and other beans, popular in the Middle East), grated radish, lemon, and wasabi. You can challenge yourself to have the meat with different kind of taste, whether eat together with grated radish, lemon, or wasabi!
After enjoying the main dish, next we can enjoy the rice porridge and dessert.
The rice porridge has gentle taste with beef toppings and nice volume, very easy to eat.
Vanilla Ice Cream Dessert
Then we closed the meal with vanilla ice cream dessert. It topped with brown sugar syrup and kinako powder (roasted soybean flour) , it tastes great, not too strong yet not too weak, another addictive one!
