Having Japanese Food in a Deli

On Labour Day, Chimp asked me out for Japanese food with 2 of her friends. We'll be meeting up at our usual yum cha place, Le Deli in Mont Kiara.

You may have noticed something wrong here, do they serve Japanese food in Le Deli? Le Deli only sells fine cut meat like German sausage, bacon, ham and cheese. Well, one specialty about Le Deli is that you can order food from restaurant in the proximity such as Ramen Taiko just inside the shoplex in Mont Kiara, which is only opposite Le Deli from the entrance inside.

Me and my buddy Chimp.

Chimp ordered her favourite ramen, Hiyashi Chuka Ramen (RM 13)

I tasted a bit of it and found that it's not too bad. Chimp found the gravy a bit too sourish but it's ok by my standard.

Rating: 3/5

Fried Kaki set (Fried Oyster set) (RM 22)

I had the seasonal set promotion, the Fried Kaki set. Which comes with rice, shoyu soup, pickled vege, fruit and of course fried oyster in bread crumbs. Instead of your normal miso soup, they serve wakame shoyu soup (seaweed Japanese soya sauce soup) instead, the soup is nice me and Chimp like it. The fried oyster is so fresh, crispy on the outside and juicy inside. Slurp, slurp. Wished they give more oyster, can't have enough of it.

Rating: 4/5

Fried kaki.

No this is not my peach wine.

The damage

When you come around this area, you can sit at Le Deli and order drinks from them and order some Japanese food from Ramen Taiko. It's much more comfortable sitting at Le Deli because it's open air.
