Tempura Lunch Course @ Yoshinari, Plaza Damas 3
Back to my favourite comforting Japanese restaurant in Plaza Damas 3 – Yoshinari, this round I was there to try their Tempura Course which is only available at lunch, and it was also after 2 months of waiting (nowadays everything also have to make reservation in advance or very advance)!
Yoshinari’s Tempura Lunch Course is pretty satisfying. For just Rm 80 you will get a variety of tempura veggies, meat and fish, appetizer, soup and end with a rice dish. The tempura is lightly battered and not greasy at all. You may dip in the tempura with its tempura sauce and grated radish, or the salt and pepper provided. I like my meat with the salt and pepper, while the veggies with the tempura sauce and grated radish.
I have not been to any other places to try out their tempura course but I will definitely revisit Yoshinari again for this course.
Tempura Lunch Course
Priced at Rm 80
Available on Wednesday to Saturday, lunch time
By reservation only
Once we were seated, we were served with the Tempura’s essentials such as salt and pepper, the radish and tempura sauce, and pickled cabbage.
But… first thing first, a highball for me and my friend!
Appetizer – Chilled Egg and Spinach
Look at the wobbly golden yellow egg yolk, simply delicious.
Hot piping Tempura Clear Soup with Tempura Gobo, Carrot and Prawn, simply comforting, light and refreshing.
Ebi – Prawn
Fresh and sweet!!! Perhaps it was the first one; the prawn’s batter was slightly thicker. However after this one, the rest of the tempura was battered lightly and thinly.
With a dash of salt and pepper, it was so wow, just munch in everything, crispy and umami.
Nasu – eggplant
Kabocha – pumpkin
Super sweet, fluffy and aromatic!
Hamo fish (conger eel), Okra, Shiso and ume
Renkon Manju – Prawn, Shiitake, gingko
Avocado, pork and shiso
This combination was super delicious! Creamy avocado with sweetness from the pork and additional of shiso elevate the flavours of the combination!
Tomato, Naga imo and shishito
I …. Forgot what fish was this… it was really sweet
Cured yolk on a bed of fluffy rice, topped with a dash of mustard. It was creamy and rich with every rice grains coated with the creamy cured yolk, quite aromatic too!
Yolk Porn moment, the yolk was so translucent .
Miso Soup as ending to our course
