Kouzu Japanese Tapas Bar & Restaurant – Not like the common Japanese restaurant as no ramen and sushi were served.

Japanese Tapas best compilation with Beer, Whisky, Wine and Japanese Sake

Talking about Kouzu Malaysia, Kouzu not only serves JAPAS (Japanese Tapas) but also Salad & Greens, Japanese Pizza, Yakitori, Pasta & Noodles, Donburi and dessert. They are also serving alcohol drinks – beer, whisky (Japanese or non-Japanese), wine and Japanese Sake.

Before we go further about what they have why not we see what they serve

Salad & Greens (5 in the menu)

SASHIMI SALAD WITH WASABI MAYO serves with all time favourite sashimi – Sake (salmon), Maguro (tuna), Ebi (prawn), Tsubugai (clam) served with deep fried lotus root and salad vegetables. Mix it up together and taste the freshness of the sashimi. The dressing was just nice to cover up everything.

ROASTED PUMPKIN WITH ROCKET LEAVES SALAD – immediately you can taste the balsamic vinaigrette which tossed together in the salads and a little scent of lemon that mix well perfectly. The strawberry… It’s so sweet and aromatic.

Japas (Japanese Tapas) (20 in the menu)

STONE GRILLED SIRLOIN – One of the best Sirloin that really tender, soft and Juicy in town. Served in a wrapped foil and was arranged perfectly on a stone grilled which a lot of people were mistaken it was a superb big mushroom.

The sirloin was grilled slowly inside until when it was served on the table, you can see the smoke came out from the foil and the moment foil opened, the aromatic could just make us mouthwatering.

CHICKEN GYOZA – Never too big, never too small and the fillings could just make you chew it with your eyes closed. Frankly speaking, eating this with Japanese Sake really give perfection to your taste buds.

PAN SEARED TUNA AND FOIE GRAS – One of a luxury food. Eat it while is Hot. Kouzu Pan Seared Tuna is so soft and chunky when you bite and lay perfectly on foie gras. Best match for me, taste it with a sip of white wine and I could feel the world.

BAKED ROLL SUSHI TOPPED WITH DICED SCALLOP – Thick cheesy roll for a cheese lover.

SASHIMI TOPPED WITH AVOCADO AND IKURA – The flower is edible! This is so fresh when is all mix well in the bowl. The saltiness of the ikura, the freshness of the avocado and sashimi really so appetizing and definitely will come back again for this with Japanese sake.

GRILLED TRUFFLED BEEF WITH ONSEN TAMAGO – Beef Lover must try this. The meat was highly aromatic, tender and succulent and one is never enough. I mean one mouth but you can have two bowls of this as the deliciousness could jive up your happy hour night. I love the Onsen Tamago (sous vide egg).

ISHIYAKI STONE BOWL – The satisfaction and happiness you could find in this hot-stone bowl with the combination of Hotate (scallop), Unagi (Japanese Eel), Ebiko (capelin roe) , Tori (chicken), Shiitake (mushroom) & Onsen Tamago (sous vide egg). The most fulfilling dish that I ever had.
