FOOD REVIEW: Fine Dining at Ishin Japanese Dining, Old Klang Road


I always love Saturdays as it is always "Feast" time!

 Also, I was sick of being a blondie, so I decided to go for a darker shade and ended up with this brown-black gradient shade :-D

 It also has a slight tinge of green too :-D

  Something for a change

 Had lunch at Ishin Japanese Cuisine. I first found out about this place when I saw someone on instagram posting pictures of their signature 3 flavored chawanmushi

 The menu comes in a form of an iPad, which I find really annoying. It is not as fun to navigate compared to the old school menu. Maybe I'm just traditional :-P


 Appetiser and Cold Ocha (Cold Green Tea)


 Curry Chicken Katsu Don :-D

 The curry was just so-so but the fried chicken was crispy and flavourful


 The signature 3-flavour chawanmushi

 I find it quite overrated though the presentation is really impressive

From left to right: Caviar, Sea Urchin & Ebiko topping :-D



 Teppanyaki Sirloin Beef Steak which came with miso sauce & soya sauce. Tastewise was just so-so also

 Cheese Baked Hotate (Scallops)

 Scallops was rubbery :-( The type of cheese didn't blend well with the scallops unfortunately...

 Foie Gras Duck Liver with Unagi (Eel)

 This dish is priced at a whopping RM133 but unfortunately, not that impressive either


 Foie Gras with King Crab meat...bland and tasteless



 Foie Gras with Kinoko Mushrooms. Amongst all of the 3 Foie Gras dishes, this was the cheapest and the best





 Ended with a scoop of Black Sesame dessert which ironically has white sesame too (as you can see in the picture)

Verdict: Come for the lunch or dinner set as it will be more worth your money. For the price we paid, we would have chosen other higher rated Japanese restaurant such as Sushi Hinata or Kame Sushi (which I have yet to try) :-D
