Lunch @ Tenjin Japanese Cuisine, Grand Millennium KL

Each day I received daily feeds from Everyday, Groupon and much more, sent to our mailbox offering discounts and great deals. I am so spoiled with choices. Especially on food. Nevertheless, to ensure I’m picking on the right choice, I must think wisely before I click on the ‘BUY’ tab. I wouldn’t say every voucher I purchased, guarantees me a good meal too…

This round, together with my girlfriends, Ashley & Wanyi, we decided to buy this deal offered by Groupon. A 4-course Japanese Bento Set Lunch + Free-flow of Green Tea at Tenjin Japanese Cuisine, Grand Millennium, Kuala Lumpur for RM29. Japanese food in a 5-star hotel? Sounds good rite? Therefore we made plans and redeemed our coupon last Saturday.

Ashley, redeeming her coupon for 2nd time for this round, gave a solid thumb up to the Japanese food.

There were 5 choices of bento for us to choose.

  • Chirashi Sushi Zen (RM56 value)
    Assorted Seafood on Sushi Rice
  • Gindara Teriyaki Zen (RM58 value)
    Grilled Cod Fish with Teriyaki Sauce
  • Sushi & Tempura Zen (RM52 value)
    Assorted Sushi and Tempura Set
  • Sashimi & Tori Teriyaki Zen (RM48 value)
    Sashimi & Grilled Chicken with Teriyaki Sauce
  • Makunouchi Bento (RM48 value) 
    Sashimi, Yakimono, Tempura

Tenjin Japanese Cuisine recently opened in Grand Millennium Kuala Lumpur on Jun 3, 2011.

A medium size restaurant serving authentic Japanese cuisine.

An open kitchen where we able to witness the skillful chefs at work.

This young chef has his 100% concentration on the radish. Hmm…he must be preparing our food.

Started off with Tuna Salad

Gindara Teriyaki Zen
Grilled Cod Fish with Teriyaki Sauce

Check out this beautiful piece of grilled cod fish. This piece of cod fish is generally thick and its perfectly grilled. Tasty with some light and sweet teriyaki sauce.

Sashimi & Tori Teriyaki Zen
Sashimi & Grilled Chicken with Teriyaki Sauce

A closer look of the thick slices Sashimi and Grilled Chicken Teriyaki Sauce. I must say that the sashimi is very fresh, I couldn’t complain more. While for the grilled chicken I felt its abit bland to me.

Makunouchi Bento
Sashimi, Yakimono, Tempura

The nicely grilled fish has crisp skin while meat is tender and juicy. While for tempura, what else can you critic when its nicely battered and crispy.

Green Tea Ice Cream as dessert was refreshing. Hmm…this could be the best green tea ice cream I ever had. Its creamy while the taste of green tea wasn’t too strong. I like it this way.

Well, I guessed we’ve made a right choice! Though it was a discounted deal, I would say the service was good. Refilling your cup of green tea without a constant reminder and a phone call reminder to the guest 2 days before the reservation date.

Buffet Dinner @ Eyuzu Japanese Cuisine, Eastin Hotel

“Dear reader, so sorry that this blog went hibernate for a week. Because the author was busy chasing dateline.”

I visited Eyuzu Japanese Cuisine, Eastin Hotel two weeks ago.

Last 2 months, I managed to grab this good deal from Everyday. It attracts 5000 buyers with the value price of RM46/ person. Applicable for dinner from Friday – Sunday.

Thought it would be a great opportunity to use it during ma birthday.

Though the dinner begins at 6.30pm, I was rather surprised seeing a large number of diners queuing at the entrance of Eyuzu (located at first floor). What’s more surprising was that everyone was holding a printed copy of their coupon! Wonder do Eyuzu still serve quality food though knowing the fact that everyone came with coupons.

Eyuzu Japanese Cuisine

Taking after the name of Japan’s rare and expensive fruit of mysterious provenance – /yuzu – /Eyuzu at the Eastin Hotel represents authenticity and exquisiteness. Recently awarded “*Best Asian Cuisines Restaurant*” and “*Best Asian Cuisine Chef*” by the Hospitality Asia Platinum Awards 2005/2006, you will find haute cuisine such as sizzling teppanyaki, sukiyaki, crispy tender tempura and sumptuous sashimi.

My favorite corner. Of sushi & sashimi. They served varieties of fresh handmade sushi & fresh sashimi which I couldn’t resist. Oh ya, they replenish the sashimi pretty quick. So, don’t need to pile up your food till others can’t get their share lor..hehhe…

WOW…check out the fresh sashimi!! Each slice are equally thick. I was told that they served Grade A sashimi. SLURRRPPP….wanting more!

Enjoyed each and every piece of it.

Wide range of Sushi

Wide range of sushi

The prawns were very fresh too

Cold Crabs

Japanese Potato Salad

Cold Tofu

All were place in a small bowl. Look so pleasant and handy!

The crunchy Edamame

Crispy Seaweed, Salmon Skin, Prawn & Crabstick

Unagi was good. Unfortunately the chicken cutlet were quite lousy. Very bland….

Chicken Skewer – not nice. meat too dry.

Teppanyaki Section. Pick your choice of meat and get them to cook for you.

Baked Oyster

Chawan Mushi was awesome. Silky smooth egg with condiments beneath.

Shark Fin Soup – couldn’t find any shark fin though.

Customize your own udon or soba with some condiments. Delicious!

Yeahh…dessert time!

Types of cakes. But they were just average.

Japanese Pancakes were made fresh on the spot. I added honey and chocolate sauce on it. They were small, not too thick and very fluffy. NICE!

Mochi with fillings. (peanut, black sesame, red bean). They are my favorite.

How about some Hot Mochi? They are glutinous ball with fillings boiled in warm water then coated with peanuts. So, its served warm. Unfortunately I think its overcooked. So, it was kinda mushy.

Strawberry & Green Tea Ice Cream

The very laku slices of Melon. The natural sweetness and fragrant which tells me to return for more.

Though there were some not so nice dishes, but with that superb Sashimi I had…I will be happy enough!

Buffet @ The Mill, Grand Millennium KL

With an irresistible deal offered by Everyday (a website that constantly offers great deals) for only RM39.90 we were able to enjoy an international buffet in a 5 Star Hotel. What a steal!! All thanks to Christine whom enlightened us about this deal!! Initially we wanted to use this as a reason to have a small gathering among the MB members. However within 2 days… with an overwhelming response…its SOLD OUT! They managed to sell about a thousand over coupons. Such a good deal, who doesn’t want wor…Me myself managed to grab few for my family.

It end up just myself, Ashley and Christine went for the buffet. A reservation was made few days before we were there. (advisable to do so to avoid disappointment). The Mill, Grand Millennium KL is strategically located next to Pavilion Shopping Centre and directly opposite Fahrenheit 88. The Mill served International Fusion cuisines with a comfy ambiance. I was quite impressed with the varieties of food they served.
