Dinner @ Rakuzen Japanese Restaurant, Empire Shopping Gallery

Last month, during our Anniversary, Alex and I decided to have some Japanese food as a simple dinner celebration. We chose Rakuzen because my 1st experience at Rakuzen, GTower was good. Unfortunately the other day, Ashley was telling me her recent visits to Rakuzen, GTower, the food were lousy. Food arrived cold and service was poor. *Sigh* Why can’t something good maintain its quality and whatsoever?

There are total of 7 Rakuzen outlets over Klang Valley.

This time we went to the Rakuzen located at Empire Shopping Gallery. We were there at around 8+pm. To my surprise the place is already quite crowded. I never expect it could be so many people even on weekdays.Β  We did not make any reservation, therefore no nice feng sui seats T_T

How can Japanese food go without wasabi??

Ebi Tempura – RM26

Crispy battered tempura prawn. Prawns were fresh and crunchy.

Uhhh…my favorite dish of all!! Plate of fresh sashimi at RM60

Couldn’t find any fault on this plate of Stamina Maki – RM38. Sushi roll with thick slices of tasty unagi.

Wanna share some sushi? πŸ˜€

Collagen Nabe (S) – RM30

Hot pot using miso soup base. Fresh ingredients are vegetables, enoki mushroom, tofu, udon and oysters. The oysters were good and soup was tasty as well.

Alex is quite a rice person. So we ordered a bowl of Garlic Rice – RM9. This garlic rice is quite normal.

Alex said Shishamo at Rakuzen is good. So we ordered a plate of Shishamo which comes in 3pcs for RM10.

I then conclude my meal with a cuppa Yuzu Sherbet – RM6. The icy cold dessert is refreshing to have after meal. Moreover yuzu is citrus..it helps to digest my food so that I can eat another round ^_^

  1. I have not been to rakuzen before..
    I always wanted to try but end up in Jyu Raku
    One thing that I like is that they always recommend me something that is off from the menu..

  2. Looks nice but i never tried this before..My cousin is staying just next to the Empire. Saujana condo. Will go there this weekend..Probably u have suggested a good place for us to have dinner πŸ™‚

  3. ooh, i didn’t realize there were seven rakuzens already. i think the only branches i’ve been to were the ones in chulan square and in hartamas shopping centre. but i have good memories of it πŸ˜€

    1. Sugimoto @ Sri Hartamas
    2. Edo Ichi @ Publika (must do reservation)
    3. Ten @ Publika ( Fine dining)
