Hakurin

Hidden at a quieter corner end in Taman Tun’s neighbourhood, Hakurin offers a casual contemporary dining experience, serving modern Japanese dishes as well as yakitori. Their grilled dishes are grilled using bichotan charcoal, to give an aromatic smokiness to the dish.

We were actually here for their happy hour, thanks to kampungboycitygal for the information! From 4pm to 7pm, they offer selected drinks at only Rm 12! Red wine, white wine, gin, beer, sake, vodka… at Rm 12!!! And we had a few glasses of red and white wine. Wanna order sake but… it is out of stock! How can a Japanese dining place sold out sake?! That’s a little sad.

But then, good food saved our hearts. All the dishes we ordered that night were really really good. No flaws. Their maki-s are very innovative and interesting, some are fused with local’s spicy heat. Fried rice was very aromatic too.

I must highlight their yakitori. They were very well seasoned and grilled to its perfection. The wings were delicious, crispy outer skin with juice tender wing’s meat. That’s so fingers licking good. The chicken skins were made to its crispiness, that’s the texture I love for chicken skin skewer. We had extra orders for this! Not to mention the bonjiri too, addictively made, salty, fatty, crispy but not greasy. Don’t remind yourself about the cholesterol level during this meal, order and eat as you can.

The beef was super good! A slice of juicy meat, paired with a small bit of fried garlic. It explosively wowed us! Tender, juicy, garlicky. Wow, Hakurin made it right.
