Rakuzen Kitchen, Desa Park City

Simon Says: Happy Birthday to Suet Li (Wednesday) and to Angel Yee (Thursday)

This is a very back dated post. A few months back my sister and my brother-in-law were back in KL with Ruth and Noah. They are having dinner with some of their friends in Rakuzen Kitchen, Waterfront at Desa Park City. Which is only 5 minutes drive from my place.

As now seems like a norm with any Japanese restaurant managed by Super Dining Sdn. Bhd. next to it is a Shojikiya shop.


I was late because I finished work only at 8 p.m. they already almost finish their main. One of their friend ordered this...

Japanese rice wine

I was offered a glass. That's a plum inside. Added so that the wine won't taste too strong.

Wasted no time in browsing through the menu and I order a salad. Try to ahem, lose some weight which fail miserably, obviously.

The house salad dressing which is the same that you can find in Rakuzen, Pasta Zanmai and Sushi Zanmai. You can even buy it from Shojikiya.

Watashi no Sashimi no Sakusaku Sappari Salada (Sashimi Salad)

Consists of crab meat, raw salmon, raw white fish, lettuce and tomato. The salmon and the white fish are fresh but to the white fish is too fishy for my liking with a bit of skin still intact. The portion is quite big too to be eaten by myself. Overall still not a bad salad. Next time I'll order a small portion instead.

Rating: 3/5

The desserts arrived half way I was eating my salad.

Green tea and chocolate mochi ice-cream.

I always like the skin made of glutinous rice which is quite chewy and eat it with cold ice-cream. Brings back my memory when I was still in primary school where I can buy two balls of mochi ice-cream with only RM 1.

Sis ordered sesame ice-cream.

Finally Krispy Kreme in Malaysia?

Nope. My sis used to work in Krispy Kreme in UK, this is her lanyard that she now use to carry her apartment's tag in Singapore.

After the dinner, the bill was taken care by Jess, my sis' bff. We then walk around to explore the shops in Waterfront.

Jess, walking with Ruth. She's also Ruth's godmother.

We then went to Coffee Bean to have coffee. The tab is on me of course.

Not to be left out is Noah, my nephew.
