Mission: To respond thoughtfully and responsibly to my experiences of drinking and dining at restaurants with regard to the quality, service, preparation, presentation and overall experience received thereat. The standpoint is one who respects the crafts of the chef and sommelier and who seeks to understand their choices in the kitchen and cellar and grow in knowledge. In this, I will seek to be fair, reasoned, direct and constructive and aim to keep my ego in check on our mutual journeys through the worlds of food and wine.

Iketeru KL Hilton November 24th 2012
Supposed to be at an open house but got screwed by Garmin in Shah Alam. Google map as well. Drove around in circles until Garmin sent us back to the main road at which point we conceded defeat. Ended up at Iketeru. Fair sashimi and very good teppanyaki steak with a bottle of hot sake soothed the nerves. Shout out for the Garlic Fried rice and the Garlic chips that come with the steak. With the Hilton card, the food is a good deal at 50% off for two people. But the sake is a bit stiff. Can buy the big 1.8 litre bottle for under RM100 at the Isetan whilst the hotel whacks you RM300 plus after plus plus for a standard 750ml bottle. What to do? Japanese food without sake is like chips without vinegar or Roti and dahl without sambal. Just not the same.
