When I was browsing through Pavilion’s FB Page…I saw they posted about WATAMI Japanese Casual Restaurant. Well..since I’ll be meeting the gals at Pavilion, KL…so I suggested to lunch at WATAMI. A new place for us to dine…so, why not give it a try.
“Watami Japanese Casual Restaurant is a new type of tavern that concentrates on providing food with less emphasis on alcohol at affordable prices. It serves delicious Japanese food and drinks in a comfortable atmosphere. The dining environment is good for causal gathering and family.”
Why do they name it ‘casual’?? I see it as quite ‘class’ also ler…
The Interior & also the nice wall deco. *Creative idea.
Looking through the ala-carte and set menu, we were more interested on the set menu. We’ll be able to try more types of dishes.
We took the order of ‘Value Set for 2 at RM100++’.
Though it says Set for 2…But the amount and types of food in this set able to eat for 3 person. Ashley, Wanyi & I…we were struggling to finish the food!
Wafu Pizza. Very thin crisp pizza topped with Teriyaki Chicken. A savory dish! My first time seeing pizza served in a Japanese restaurant.
Ashley working on the pizza.
Onsen Tamago Caeser Salad. Fresh lettuce, cherry tomato, onions, hot spring egg, tasty chicken slices and lastly sprinkled with cheese powder and cream sauce. It was a good salad!
How bout me le? Working on what? Think Think…Oh ya…I worked on the ‘Hot Pot’. hahah…
2 plates of Ni Hotate Sushi. Cooked scallop sushi. Not sure why both plates don’t taste the same. 1 was fine…while the other plate..the scallops were rather rubbery. *Chew chew chew*
Crispy Chicken & Potato. Deep fried chicken with french fries. I like the fried chicken very much. The meat was juicy and tender with real crispy batter…hmm…not sure what secret ingredient they uses lar…But I tasted the hint of ‘nam yee’ (fermented red bean cube).
Shio Chanko Nabe. Something like sukiyaki. Tofu, vege, enoki & shitaki mushrooms, egg with tasty and delicious broth.
You can choose 1 of 3 types of rice noodles. Udon, Ramen and Gohan. So we chose Udon.
(From Left to Right) Green Citrus Yuzu Marmalade Soda, Green Citrus Soda. I preferred Green Citrus Yuzu Marmalade Soda!!
Goma Ice Cream(Sesame Ice Cream) & Matcha Ice Cream(Green Tea Ice Cream). Here, I find that their sesame ice cream is smooth and creamy.

Simple person – LOL! quick learner hor… =p
Probably 1U punya not so nice?? Thanks…hope u had a nice weekend too 😉
I think they’re called casual cos of the dining style. Not really fine dining, and encourage sharing/interactive cooking lo.
Baby Sumo – Ohhhh….icic.. 😉
Haven’t really tried their menu. But I like their version of caesar salad. 😀
Chong – Yea…I like the caesar salad too… I don’t like those caesar salad with too strong cheese…but theirs is just nice 😉
Haven’t really tried their menu but I like their version of caesar salad. 😀

Been there recently too at 1U. Quality was good but flavors was a bit light for me. Will give this another round.. 😉
Food Dreams – isit?? I wonder both Pavilion and 1U serves the same taste o not…
Ooo…they also have watami in Msia. I have it for lunch at least once a week. Cos it’s near my office. Reasonable price and yummy food.
Hazel – Yah…agreed! & its still very new in Malaysia. If I’m not mistaken, only 2 outlets. Pavilion and 1U. 😉
