Kansai @ Ara Damansara

6 01 2010

I celebrated my New Year Eve at a Japanese restaurant called Kansai with my girlfriend. This place is situated next to NZX at Ara Damansara. From the outlook, Kansai offers a variety of Japanese dishes that are also found elsewhere. But what makes this place nice is the fact that their food is fresh and really tasty.

The first dish that we tried was called Chuka Iidako (RM 9.99), popularly known as Baby Octopus. It was really good as these baby octopuses were moist and delicious. The size is also noticeably bigger than some other restaurant that I ate before.

Next up was Takoyaki Ball. This is also commonly known as Octopus Ball  (RM 10.99) where special batter is pour onto a pan with many small cups to form the shape of a ball. Inside the ball is a piece of bite-size piece of boiled octopus. The dish came with takoyaki sauce and chopped green onions. And how’s the taste? Very good indeed.

Coincidentally, Kansai had a New Year Eve special promotion where they are offering a set of sushi for only RM 23.99. Without hesitation, we gave this a try. It came with a variety of stuff in there.

I love these tempura rolls…

Amai Ebi….





Overall, I am really happy with the food there. The fact that this place is located at NZX makes it easy to find free parking during dinner time.

Last weekend, I drove down to Putrajaya again for a photoshoot session. This time, my colleague who just bought this Canon 7D came along as he wanted to have a field test for his brand new toy. Here are some of the pictures that I took around the place.
