It was a Friday evening and my friends, and I were looking for a place to dine. After some discussion, we decided to give Kitsuzo Izakaya a try. We had heard great things about this Japanese gastropub located in Sri Hartamas and were excited to check it out.
As we walked into the restaurant, we were greeted by the boss himself. He was warm and welcoming, making us feel right at home. He recommended some of their signature dishes and we were eager to try them out.
First up was the Kitsuzo Style Salmon Sashimi. This dish was quite special and different from any sashimi I had tried before. The salmon was served with a variety of toppings that added a burst of flavour with every bite.
Next, we tried the Spinach & Shrimp Warm Salad. This dish was a unique combination that I hadn’t seen before. The sauce was a mince pork sauce that was a bit salty, but it went well with the dish.
For our main course, we went for the Assorted Seafood Teppanyaki. The dish was ok, but nothing to write home about. The highlight of the meal was the Pan-Fried Curry Udon with Shrimp. The udon was flavourful and had a taste like Thai curry crab. It was a crowd-pleaser at the table.
We also tried the Salt-Grilled Mackerel and Pork Belly Skewer. They were both ok, but not as impressive as the other dishes we had tried.
Overall, we had a great experience at Kitsuzo Izakaya. The restaurant had a cosy atmosphere, and the service was excellent. We would recommend making a booking ahead of time as there weren’t many tables and seats available. The prices were reasonable and the value for money was good. It was a different presentation of Japanese cuisine that we thoroughly enjoyed.
