Kushi Raku

Monday, August 17, 2015

Kushi Raku, a traditional Japanese yakitori restaurant and beer house, opened on December 2014, official grand opening was just a week ago. 

A casual place for after work drinking, the concept is exactly like Izakaya in Japan, serving variety liquor and yakitori.

Blue banner, red wording "居酒屋" hang on the bamboo wall, also found the red lattern (akachōchinin front of their shop, because previously Japanese will hang up the red lattern as a sign of Izakaya, until now still have folks call Izakaya as akachōchin too.

Neat and cozy place with japan decorative just enhanced the environment. You can choose to sit at bar side, bar table or normal dining table. Sake, Beer, Wine, Champagne, Whisky and Brandy are serve in the house. 

I would like to have a beer 1st. The common Japanese beer you can find in Msia is Sapporo Beer, but Kushi Raku are serving Kirin Ichiban, which I never heard before. Smooth and no bitter beer, easy to drink! Really suitable for casual drinker like me. Boss, one more please!

Chuka Sazae Niku, MYR9.00
Marinated Turbo Cornutus, what is that? It's a sea SNAIL! You can see it from Menu, boss write it as SNAIL MEAT. The texture is very chewy, if I don't tell you it's snail meat, you will think it's jellyfish or octopus. Is a very special appetizer.

Eihire, MYR10.00
It's skate's fin, it looks similar to stingray, but is totally different species. Taste like toasted dried cuttlefish, best combination with the beer.
