The fasting month is over and this is definitely a MUST TRY! Suki-ya opened in Tokyo Street earlier this month. If you ever visit Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, don’t forget to drop by to Suki-ya!
With wood, rounded and square seating designs, it adds into the ambiance of modern Japanese style-like. The interior is very cozy and it’s packed with customers.
Suki-ya offers buffet of sukiyaki and shabu shabu. The charges are as per image and drink are not included in the buffet, therefore you need to order it separately.
Here are the choices of soup that you can chose from which is Shabu Shabu, Sukiyaki and Kimuchi. I recommend Sukiyaki and Kimuchi soup as the soup has better flavor. Sukiyaki basically tasted like miso soup while Kimuchi tasted like kimchi.
Head down to the healthy bar where you have a variety of vegetables and steamboat foodies. There’s cabbage, lettuce, oyster mushrooms, needle mushrooms, corns, crab sticks, egg tofu, cheese egg tofu (heart this extremely!), meatballs, leeks, carrots, yam, cherry tomatoes, eggs and etc.
There’s a fridge next to the healthy bar and this is where your meat is chilled. The meat is sliced thinly and you can see the freshness of the meat, one plate serves about 8 slices. There are also grated radish and chopped spring onion served in the sauce plates, you are suppose to mix these into your sauce. You are suppose to order all these from the waiter, the gullible me and my peeps took straight from the fridge *huge smile*.
These are the two sauces which is Ponzu and Misotare. Here’s some information to share for both sauces that I’ve saw from a paper on their table.
- Ponzu (Shoyu with Vinegar)
Suitable for vegetables. Add grated radish and chopped spring onion to your preference. To spice it up, add chopped chillies.
- Misotare (Bean Paste Sauce)
Suitable for meat. Good on its own. Add spring onion, garlir or chopped chillies to your preference.
- Gomatare (Sesame Sauce)
Suitable for all ingredients. For a nutty flavor, kindly ask from their service crew.
There is one sauce I love so much that I forgotten to take a picture of it. The flavor might not be a favorite for everyone because it has quite an intense sesame scent and flavor that carries along with nutty taste.
The hot pot comes with a divided half, where you can have two soups at the time. On the left is the Sukiyaki soup and on the right is the Kimuchi soup. Look at how colorful my soup is!
The ice creams are fun to dispense, it comes with vanilla, chocolate and mix of both. There are cornflakes by the side to add some crunchiness to the ice cream. However, the ice cream was disappointing because it doesn’t taste as creamy as expected. I love the texture but for it to be not as creamy, the flavor seems to run out of proportion too. The cornflakes are too chunky to go with the ice cream, it kind of pokes your throat as you slides the ice cream into your mouth.
I highly recommend Suki-ya and now I’m missing it already! It’s a great place for family and friends especially those who love steamboat, shabu shabu and sukiyaki. That’s a great combo, huh?
