Situated within the metropolitan area of Kuala Lumpur, Ishin is an award-winning fine dining Japanese restaurant that serves genuine Japanese and Kaiseki style cuisines. Thanks to the wonderful invitation, it was my second visit to Ishin to sample some of their signature dishes, and the quality of foods were still wonderful like my previous dining experience.
From the moment you step through Ishin’s doorway, you will experience a warm, cozy and intimate ambience as Ishin’s interior design and lighting will set the mood right to get you started on an exquisite Japanese culinary journey.
Ranging from salad, sushi, soup, agemono, yakimono, nabemono, shokuji, teppanyaki, and many more, a stunning menu awaits diners at Ishin Japanese Dining. While deciding what to order from the vast selections, we had the appetizer Tatami Iwashi (RM22) first, grilled baby sardine with super crispy texture.
Sashimi is one of the most popular delicacies in a Japanese restaurant. Ishin offers customers fresh and quality selections like Shake (salmon), Maguro (tuna), Amaebi (sweet shrimp), Hamachi (yellow tail), Akagai (live ark shell), Hokkaido Uni (sea urchin), and many more. If you have no idea what to order, just go for the Sashimi Moriawase (RM80 for 5 types) or this artistically plated Chef Special Premium Sashimi (market price) that satisfaction is guaranteed.
Have you tried chawanmushi in baked version? Served together with succulent scallops garnished in the middle, Ishin’s Baked Chawanmushi (RM68) is still silky smooth in texture and it has extra fragrant from the baking process. I really enjoyed this good stuff.
Ishin prepares their meals freshly using ingredient imported from Japan’s famous Tsukiji market with the finest products of the season. This Ishin Bento (RM55) featuring mouth-watering special house selection is the perfect way to discover chef’s tantalizing signatures dishes at Ishin.
Sendai Beef is one of the highest ranked beef cuts in Japan and can only be bread by licensed farmers. Priced at RM250 per 100g, it does cost a pretty penny to indugle this premium quality of meat, but definitely worth it!
For some luxury indulgence, we had the pan fried Duck Liver (RM104) with mushroom. Smooth and creamy in texture, the flavour is so rich and fragrant resulting from the pan fried process.
Far more sweeter and juicier than cantaloupe and honeydew, Musk Melon (RM68 per slice) is also called ‘the king of fruit’ in Japan. Yes, it is a bit pricey compared to other fruits, but you need to try it at least once in your lifetime to know how tasty it is! Trust me, you will not regret it!
