Thanks to the wonderful invitation, I recently get to sample a variety of Japanese foods, prepared by the skillful chef at Edo Ichi Japanese Restaurant that located inside the happening F&B spot Nexus Bangsar South Kuala Lumpur.
Furnished with yellowish lights to create the warm atmosphere and cozy ambience, which makes Edo Ichi an ideal place for great meals and casual get-togethers.
Live by the philosophy that food should be easy to eat and always shared with friends and family, Edo Ichi offers their customers something special here, which is a sophisticated twist on the traditional Japanese Izakaya style of informal eating and drinking.
Edo, literally means ‘bay-entrance’ or ‘estuary’, also Romanized as Yedo or Yeddo, and is the former name of the Japanese capital Tokyo. It was seat of power for the Tokugawa Shogunate, which ruled Japan from 1603 to 1868. During this period, it grew to become one of the largest cities in the world and home to an urban culture.
Foods served at Edo Ichi are designed to awe-inspiring creativity to fine dining, bring the simplicity and beauty of Japanese cooking and meld it with nuances and surprising flavors of the west. The chefs have created an array of flavors to suit every palate and deliver an authentic flavor of the east while respecting the traditions of the past.
