Nihon Kai Japanese Restaurant @ Old Klang Road, Kuala Lumpur

A has been raving about this place being cheap and nice for the longest time. Although I live in Old Klang Road almost all my life, I have never heard of this place. A lot of people says that this place is a hidden gem.

On Valentine’s Day, A and I headed there for dinner. The place was extremely crowded and there was a line to get a table. A was smart to call to make a booking. Nihon Kai was kind enough to save the spot for us although we were half an hour late!

Nihon Kai consists of two floors. The 2nd floor is air conditioned and it has a few private rooms. You may book a room for a function.

We ordered this..

Nihon Kai Sp Maki (RM16) – sashimi and vegetable wrapped together with rice paper and with mayonnaise and ebikko on top!


A’s set dinner – Grilled Fish

My set dinner – Grilled Unagi Rice (RM34) – very (or maybe too generous) with their unagi. My stomach almost exploded after finishing the stuff we ordered!

Overall, it was good! Food was fresh and ample. Ambiance was great. It was well worth it!

I am told that the place gets pack during dinner. Make a reservation before going!

Restauran Choy Kei @ Happy Garden, Old Klang Road, Kuala Lumpur

Sometimes I wonder why so many KL-lites love driving up to Penang to eat. Why drive few hundred kilometers for Chinese hawker food when you can have something equally great at Old Klang Road?

This round’s review will be on Restaurant Choy Kei, located at Happy Garden. The restaurant has great food but doesn’t look appealing. The ventilation isn’t that good and it gets really hot in the afternoon. Bring loads of tissues along. Notwithstanding all these unappealing factors, Restaurant Choy Kei is a treasure trove of great food.

There are three stalls that are worth mentioning in this restaurant namely the stalls that sells pork noodles, chicken rice and fish head noodles.

My personal favourite would be the pork noodles stalll. The pork noodles stall serves excellent dry version of pork noodles. Their noodles come with a generous serving of minced meat also black pepper minced meat underneath the noodles. The soup on the other hand comes with pieces of soft and tender pork meat and also a half boiled egg. The stall closes around 2pm.

The fish head noodles stall is also quite well known. Its somehow related to Win Soon – Restaurant Ah Soon Fish Head Mee. I was told that the taste of this noodles is around the same with Win Soon’s fish head noodles. Thus, I believe it is good. Check out Kuchai Boy’s review at his blog.
