Gerai Makan Japanese BBQ 大众烧肉 @ Taman Desa, Kuala Lumpur
Gerai Makan Japanese BBQ 大众烧肉 is one of my good finds in Year 2011 (highly recommended by a choosy friend a.k.a. picky eater) after fire-y hot meal in Uncle Jang and the once-a-while-splurge in Shuraku. Want a place for sake and some grilled stuff but not ready for a splurge?! Perhaps, this could be in your list.
Tucked inside the back alley of Plaza Faber in Taman Desa neighbourhood was this cute little food stall managed by Mr. Seiji Fujimoto, who is also the owner of Sanuku Udon. Here… no air-con, no glossy looking menu (just a simple laminated A4 size menu), not very brightly-lit (yes if you are sitting at the open space area), and … get ready to sweat
Genghis Khan (RM 20) or Jingisukan was the only lamb dish in the menu. It was a type of Japanese grilled mutton dish prepared and served on a convex metal skillet. The lamb pieces were very well marinated, soft and juicy and a lil bit of gamey taste. That’s how I love my lamb be.
After the Genghis Khan, the staff will remove the pan for you and you can now go for your ordered raw meat, slices by slices and grilled them side by side.
Pork Belly (RM 10) with the right proportion of fats and lean parts.
Pork Loin (RM 10)
Pork tongue (RM 6). Am a fan of tongue. The tongue slices turned out to be crunchy-liked after grilling. All these meaty slices go great with the sauce provided (which is the mixture of Japanese soy sauce, sake, mirin, sugar, garlic and sesame).
If you are not a pork person, you could opt of beef! They are all stated in the laminated A4 size menu.
Is that all?! NO!
Do try out their stewed rice with egg for a tummy-filling ending. Something comfy and this is prepared straight from their kitchen.
As usual, the yakiniku and yakitori’s best friend… Pick your choice!
