Warning: I don't feel wordy today. *sulk*
(It's my annual, recurring condition called: Year End Blues)
Went to Solaris Mont Kiara for lunch, felt like Japanese - chanced upon this place called Akari.
(It's not new (1+ years old?) and is located more or less on top of Dr Cafe)
Inside, it's small - half a tiny lounge/ bar and the other half a restaurant:
(Still, modern and comfy)
Selection on the la carte menu is decent (not huge variety but it's enough) with a few lunch sets too.
(We went for a la carte that day)
- Agedashi tofu (RM 12+):
Nice/ Worth trying.
Smooth tofu cubes enveloped with batter and doused with a salty enough but not overpowering sauce.
- Dragon King Roll (RM 32+)
Rice was just a little bit too moist (for my tastebuds) and felt like something was missing.
(Fresh ingredients, but the contrast of textures and flavors not outstanding)
- Garlic Fried Rice (RM 10+)
Fragrant but I thought it was kinda pricey considering the serving size.
- Salmon Kimuchi Nabe (RM 26+)
Tasty, and not just because I like kimchi, and I like soup.
(Nice balance of flavors without being too "in your face")
- Tempura Moriwase (RM 28+)
Light crispy batter and fresh ingredients.
- Goma Ice Cream (RM 12+)
Creamy and not too sweet.
I promise I'll try to snap out of "bleh" mood as quickly as possible. It usually only lasts about a month anyway, so bear with me, ok?
PS/ Sorry about how blur the photos are - I forgot my camera so I had to use my phone camera, and it was kinda dark in the reaturant.
So it's: Small, modern and cosy Japanese restaurant in Solaris Mont Kiara, friendly service and fair selection of food BUT interior can be a little bit cramped, and really nothing else bad to say... :)
