Palillos Yakitori Bar @ Jalan Mesui, KL
Oh yakitori and drink, it has been a while.
Always wanted to come over Palillos Yakitori Bar after seeing numerous photos and reviews on SNS, finally got my dates Sze and Jessie to come here. This yakitori place is gonna be something different from what I have explored previously. It is a fusion of Japanese and Spanish and we love everything here because they tasted so delicious!
Palillos Yakitori Bar
A hidden gem that is located at Jalan Mesui, also a perfect hangout place to untie the knots on the shoulders with a glass or two after work. This yakitori bar offers a variety of skewers, combining the traditional Japanese grilling method of yakitori (skewers) with Spanish flavours. So you may find a lot of beautifully fused with Japanese-Spanish delights such as Iberico pork belly with Shiso and Spanish octopus; grilled over the imported charcoal called Binchotan that said to be the best charcoal for grilling food.
This yakitori bar has an alfresco courtyard for those who love alfresco ambience, while I fancy their indoor that is set with a wooden bar counter and beautified by the many colours liquor bottles at the background. Reservation is highly recommended as I experienced a full house on a Saturday (luckily I made reservation).
Our drinks to start:
Nikka Coffey Gin with Fever Tree Indian Tonic
Ki No Tea Gin with Fever Tree Elderflower Tonic
Patatas Bravas (Rm 16) with mentaiko mayo
This was the thing that drew me here! A simple appetiser served with additive mentaiko mayo.
Eryngi Mushroom (Rm 9)
Leeks (Rm 9)
Skin (Rm 7)
Pork, Bacon, Shisho and Mentaiko (Rm 10)
Super in love with this skewer. Guess I am getting more and more into the unique flavour of shisho leaf. I dunno how to describe; it was special and gave a balance flavour to the pork and bacon.
Smoked Cheese with truffle oil (Rm 13)
Smoky, cheesy and aromatic with truffle oil. Must have it while it is still hot. Another addictive stuff that you must order.
Breast with Skin (Rm 7)
Spanish Chistorra Chorizo (Rm 10)
Another addictive bites! Yummmm!
