Shakariki 432 Sake Dining @ Desa Sri Hartamas, KL
Shakariki 432 Sake Dining
Located at Desa Sri Hartamas, this Shakariki 432 Sake Dining is a sister outlet to Shakariki 432 in Publika . This izakaya dining offers a different atmosphere as compared to its sister’s place, coloured in black with chic classy interior, background music is rather soothing and I find the ventilation here is a lot better as compared to the sister outlet.
Menu here is pretty extensive, covering a wide variety of dishes from snack dish that goes very well with drinks to deep fried dishes, from tempura to yakitori, from noodles to desserts.
Drinks menu is very extensive too! There is quite a number of sake in their sake menu, covering various brands procured from all over Japan, with the origin and taste profile stated in the menu. You get to choose your favourite sake easily based on the information given. Besides that, there are umeshu, highball, sour in the menu too!
First thing first, an iced cold Suntory Kaku Highball for me! They highlighted that they make it with their super carbonated soda dispenser, the one and only in Malaysia. No doubt, it was quite a good fizzy crisp highball that satisfied my palate with an “Ahhhh…” after drinking. Happy hour rate is Rm 16 per glass, from the time they open their store till 7pm.
Thai Style Glass Noodle Salad (Rm 20) for a refreshing start. Can’t believe there is such flavour in an izakaya but it was a good one.
Karaage (Rm 19) served with 3 kinds of flavoured salt.
The must have in an izakaya. Always the drinks’ best friend! Love their karaage, lightly battered and deep fried to perfection, crispy on the outside and succulent inside.
Fried Potato with Truffle Oil and Parmesan Cheese (Rm 18)
Japanese White Corn Tempura (Rm 15)
We wished the batter could be lighter and crunchier.
Kushikatsu, or the deep fried skewer, the Osaka’s famous dish can be found here! We had Asparagus (Rm 10), Okra (Rm 4), Lotus Root (Rm 4), Eggplant; they were all lightly battered, with light crisp and non-greasy.
Another drink’s best friend – Yakitori can be found in the menu. We tried a few such as Ginnan – ginko nuts (Rm 10), Shitake (Rm 10)
Nasubi Dengaku (Rm 18)
Eggplant with miso paste sauce but I wished it was drenched with more miso sauce.
Mentai Abura Soba (Rm 28)
Or also known as oil noodles, is originated from Tokyo. It is the chewy thick noodles topped with a variety of ingredients. This Mentai Abura Soba is topped with baby corn, bamboo shoots, okra, mentaiko, grated radish, pieces of chicken breast, an onsen tamago, shiso leaves, katsuobushi powder, shredded nori and side with fried garlic (because my friend don’t take garlic); a squeeze of the lemon wedges plus a stir to combine everything together; feel free to sprinkle some chili oil and vinegar available for a change of flavour. I like the chewiness of the noodles, will go for their abura soba that comes with chashu in the usual menu next time.
