Outstanding Pork at Kamimura in KL!!
Wow. Must record a brilliant meal at the Kamimura Japanese Restaurant the other night. Located on Level Two of The Weld Shopping Centre on Jalan Raja Chulan the food was totally stellar and stunning. It was also totally pork. Starting off with Pork Salad, comprising thinly sliced neck mixed in with onion and yam, we were next served with some amazing Tonkatsu kebab style on a stick (meat and onion, both tonkatsu-ed separately) followed by a braised pork belly piece on its own and ending with thin belly slices Shabu Shabu style dipped quickly in a steamboat with boiling veggies. All of it was wonderfully fantastic. The Doc was in heaven, saying he would be back very soon. We also have been raving about it to friends and they are all hugely excited and want to go. Was half tempted not to write about it, because once the secret is out then we don't get a look in any more. But it is sooooo good. The braised pork in particular - total melt in the mouth and the most exquisite combo of meat and fat. Woooooooooooooooo…..
Drinks wise, there was Bollinger to start, with a Chassagne Montrachet to follow, then a Chateauneuf du Pape and ended with single malt whiskey over ice. The wines went most nicely with the food.
No photos cos forgot to bring the camera. Next time… and be assured, there will be. Outstanding.
