Tykoh Inagiku Japanese Restaurant (大公稲ぎく) 3rd post

Posted by: Wen Ching In: Japanese Food

Yup, this is our third time posting on Tykoh Inagiku, our favourite Japanese restaurant. Instead of venturing into some new place, we decided to play safe and visit this restaurant. Perhaps we also miss their food very badly which led us to this place on Valentines Day.

A very authentic Japanese restaurant with fine interior and comfortable seatings.

They had a Valentines Day special course for RM100 per pax. Without second thoughts, we ordered this course. This course includes a seafood salad, sashimi, lobster taru-taru yaki, negima nabe, prawn tempura, roasted beef, seafood pilaf, miso soup and a dessert. Anyway, this is our seafood salad. It was served with fresh scallop, raw fish, ikura (いくら), tiny squids and vegetables. The salad was topped with bonito flakes (鰹節) and the salad dressing was rather sourish and appetising. We really like Japanese salad because they are usually not too creamy and oily. The raw ingredients are very fresh!

We had 3 types of sashimis which are nicely presented in a basket. The dark red coloured sashimi is maguro (鮪), also known as tuna. The lighter coloured sashimi is buri (鰤), more commonly known as yellowtail. We also had 3 small squids. All sashimis tasted very fresh, our favourite would be the buri sashimi.

This lobster taru-taru yaki (イセエビタルタル焼き) was the star of the day. We quickly snapped a few photos and ate it immediately. Topped with ginkgo nuts, the lobster was really fresh and it tasted extremely delicious with the cheesy and garlicky sauce. We enjoyed every taste of it, we even finished up the sauce! Two thumbs up for this dish!

This negima nabe (ねぎま鍋) tasted was filled with a generous serving of ingredients such as fish, mushroom, bean curd and vegetables. The soup was heated by charcoal and it was really flavourful.

Our prawn tempura (エビ天ぷら) was rather delicious, it was crispy on the outside and the prawn was really juicy on the inside, even better when eaten with the tempura sauce. Since I don’t take beef, we requested to replace the grilled beef with grilled fish. The grilled fish tasted quite good, it was rather raw on the inside.

Here’s our seafood pilaf. The rice was rather fragrant and we enjoyed this too.

We missed their Ishiyaki Kaisen Sanshoku (石焼海鮮三色御飯) so much that we have to order this the other day. For this dish, 3 rice types of seafood which include salmon roe (いくら), sea urchin (海栗) and fish were served in this hot stone bowl. As usual, the seafood were really fresh and it tasted really great with the slightly sweet sauce, the rice was crispy too! For RM58, we think that this dish is really worth the price!

Finally, we had our dessert which is included in the Valentines course. The black forest cake tasted rather ordinary but we enjoyed the macha ice-cream topped with azuki red beans a lot! It was a really good combination, our all time favourite dessert. Also, this course came with a complimentary rose, how thoughtful of them!

We still think that this restaurant is the best Japanese restaurant in KL. Service was really good, they were really attentive and polite, the Japanese owner greeted all customers when they left the restaurant. Do visit this restaurant for its reasonably priced and authentic Japanese food!

Ling239, yeah, it is quite worth to order the whole set, very filling, delicious and fresh!

Japanese food is one of the most bizarre of all, but some dishes are delicious.
