Contemporary Japanese Cuisine in the Heart if Kuala Lumpur
 As their tagline says it all, the restaurant is located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, Jalan Ampang to be precise... One of the busiest road in KL. Made our way there for dinner two days back right after work. It wasn't a long journey but the heavy traffic does made the journey seems longer than it was suppose to be.

Zakuro2 Japanese Cuisine
Zakuro 2, established in 1997. The Zakuro name holds more than 10 years of experience in Japanese cuisine. Opened in 2004, Zakuro 2 is a contemporary Japanese restaurant set amidst the bustling streets of Kuala Lumpur. Using our years of experience, we survive only the best of authentic yet innovative Japanese cuisine
Anyway, secluded in the same building of Seasons and Tai Thong next to Ampang Park. The environment changes as you walks into the restaurant. Feeling quiet and calm. It seems it has transported you away from the bustling traffic outside. We were greeted by a very friendly captain. Shown into our room for the six of us. We were swiftly served with towel, a cold dish appetizer and Ocha.

After carefully browsing through the thick and pictorial menu, we placed our order. It was only then the marketing manager drop by to gave us some recommendations, a little late though. But it was great to know the bestsellers of the restaurant for more follow-up visits. Their recommended dishes includes :
Dragon Fruit Roll - Dragon Fruit, Crabstick & Cucumber - RM25.00
Foagura Kobe - Hand Cut Slices Of Kobe Beef & Foie Gras Sautéed With Eggplant, Drizzled In A Special Sauce
Foie Gras Udon - Stir Fried Udon With Shiitake Mushrooms, Topped With Foie Gras & Ohba Leaf - RM27.00

Non of the mentioned we ordered... But we had ordered a vary of food from the menu.

Instead, our dinner consist of the following;
Appetizer, Ocha - Japanese Green Tea
Chawan Mushi - Steamed egg custard with tiger prawn, fishcake and shiitake mushroom

The smooth Chawan Mushi came with the set dinner we ordered. For the ala-carte menu of chawan mushi the Scallop Chawan Mushi and Shark Fin Chawan Mushi was recommended. The appetizer is a cold dish of salmon with some carrots and spring onion.

And the dinner ends with a sweet note of Peanut Mochi and Sesame Ice-Cream on the house. Peanut Mochi will be in the menu real soon. There could be a revised version of the Peanut Mochi with green tea!

Smooth and milky ice-cream came strongly recommended. The black sesame could be distinctly tasted and the lingering taste of the black sesame on your tongue from the milky dairy.
