Sushi Kinmedai @ Solaris Dutamas, KL

  • Sumo

Before bidding goodbye to year 2017, I decided to splurge a little on a good meal. And so, together with my partner-in-crime, we headed to one that is recommended by Citygal for a self-pampering dinner.

Sushi Kinmedai

A very humble Japanese restaurant that is tucked at Solaris Dutamas. It is originated from Tokyo, serving authentic sushi and fresh sashimi sourced in Tsukiji fish market and air flown from Japan.

The interior of the restaurant is pretty much elaborated; kinmedai decorative on the wall, cosy tatami flooring, bamboo plants. There is also a small bridge made of wood from the entrance, which reminded me of many bridges in Japan, such Shinkyo bridge in Nikko even though it is not in red colour. Very zen-ish, I feel. Once entering the restaurant, guests will have to take off the shoes and put into the locker.

I chose to be seated at the sushi counter where I can observe the sushi chef – Tanaka San’s making in action. Oshibori (wet towel) was given once we were seated.

We went for the Special Sushi Nigiri course of 10 pieces for Rm 168. This set comes with Kobachi, Chawan Mushi, chef’s selection of 10 pieces premium sushi, maki, Miso Soup and ended with a dessert. I must say, this set is very value for money. Though the fish slices were thinner as compared to many other places I have tried, but you get what you pay for. At Rm 168, we were served with many kinds of premium fish such as tai, buri, chutoro, toro, uni… and ended up with a swarm of fish (in variety) swimming in our tummies.

Alternatively, you may go for Aburi Sushi Course, or if you have a better budget, you can opt for higher range omakase experience.

Mini cholesterol bowl with ikura (fish roe) and uni (sea urchin) on a bed of rice. It was a super super mini one but I had to say, the sea urchin was very sweet.

On dessert, you will be given few options of ice cream to choose from. We had the Goma ice cream and Kuromitsu Sorbet as sweet endings.
