Manmaru Robatayki @ Atria Shopping Mall,Petaling Jaya.


Hola! It has been a bloody while. This year end has been full of unexpected events, hence the hiatus this blog has gone through. 

Glad to be able to sneak a few hours out for lunch to catch up with a few of my friends last week at Manmaru Atria over some Japanese food and cocktails. 

Gyoza chips with Tuna Salsa.

Love the thin and crispy gyoza sheet that goes with it(not in the picture)
The salsa was remarkably refreshing with bits of cucumber and mango.

Then we had the varieties of sashimi platter. 
Our fabulous 5-variety seasonal Sashimi (RM150) came in this presentation- which include: 
Shake, Otoro, Amaebi, Kampachi and Akami. 

We also found a rare type of seaweed- Umibudo in the platter too.

Umibudo also known as Okinawa's rare seaweed, has a distinctive appearance. It look like an emerald bracelet to me and it tasted akin to tobiko. 

The lobster roll comes with mango and cucumber arrange skilfully into a dragon-like structure.
Adorned with salmon roe atop and sprinkled with generous amount of ebiko on the side.

Salmon Ikura Millefeuille (RM45) and Gyoza Chips with Tuna Salsa (RM28). 

The ingredient may sound and look simple but the taste is definitely on top of the tier, 
the presentation of this Salmon & Ikura Mille-Feuille certainly won over my heart. The mini crab looks like it's fishing for edible flower- and the 'rod' is actually made of squid ink spaghetti.

I just couldn't take my eyes off this dish. 
Dining in Manmaru definitely evoke all my senses to live.

If you are feeling bored of the usual Japanese ala carte, try their Omakase which I highly recommended.

Manmaru's Omakase Sets priced at only RM180 per pax (5-course) and RM280 (7-course), you can skip all the decision making process and let Chef Danny decide what's best to serve you on that day. 

Course No.1 - 5 types of appetiser.

Look at the super petit crab!

Course no.2 - Sashimi for one.

Look at the amount of fresh cut sashimi that you are getting. 
It's definitely worth the price that you are going to pay for. 

Sweetest Amaebi (Sweet shrimp)

Course no.3 - Grilled Oyster with cheese. 

Not a single drop of the oyster essence goes to waste.

4th course- Foie gras with Salmon Skin.
Just realise I didn't manage to get a nice shot of this dish (sorry, my bad). 
This is not your typical foie gras as it was being marinated for 3 weeks with chef's secret recipe.
The assertive foie gras taste was very well balanced with the miso paste- Stuff the entire morsel in one mouthful, and enjoy the sweet, creamy, and crunchy texture all at once. 
A very note-worthy dish I must say. 

Not to forget it was so pretty to look at too. <3
Who needs roses when they have edible flowers?

5th course - Wagyu beef

The waygu beef was seared then slow cook on a pre-heated hot stone to retain its flavour.
This dish should be consumed as soon as it arrives to your table. 
It took me less than a minute to take a shot of this beauty and I managed to savour the best medium-rare chunk of meat.

The meat was remarkably juicy and fragrant(thanks to the generous amount of finely chopped garlic coated on the exterior on the meat); it requires zero skills to tell that this is a well-marbled cut. 

6th course- Seared Tuna Belly.

Perfectly seared tuna belly lightly seasoned with pepper and garlic, served with thinly sliced porcini mushroom underneath, this is, my friend, the real deal. 

No further explanation needed. 
If you haven't try this before, you are definitely missing out a lot in life. 

7th course- Trio way to eat ramen. 

....and just as I thought that I've survived the 7 courses, here comes the dessert. 

Fyi, dessert is complimentary when you order the Omakase set.
(YES YOU GOT IT RIGHT, so if you are ordering the 7-courses omakase, you are actually getting extra one dish)

Look how thoughtful chef is when it comes to plating. 
Love the pulled sugar candy that has been shaped into a bowl, and my favorite green tea ice cream paired with adzuki beans (I hope  you have a clue why I name my blog url as greentearedbean now).

Signature Smoked & Plum Galaxy (RM39; combining the fruity powers of plum & peach)

Apple Gravity Beer (RM28) (left) 

Spring Peach (RM25) 

Hana Kotaba- RM30
Manmaru is definitely a place for people who appreciate the finest Japanese food.
