If you're looking for an authentic Japanese dining experience, look no further than Minori Japanese restaurant. It has a zen-like Japanese decor, located inside The Royal Chulan Damansara Hotel at Mutiara Damansara. That afternoon we were invited to savour the Omakase Set prepared by Chef Takahiro, starting with the appetiser, Yum Tofu & Grilled Seasonal Eggplant with Crab Sauce, Ginger Flavour & Mountain Caviar.

When we were presented with the Yum Tofu & Grilled Seasonal Eggplant with Crab Sauce, Ginger Flavour & Mountain Caviar, I initially felt it looked rather normal. But when told of the ingredients used, I began to appreciate what went into my mouth with each spoonful of this dish. It actually tasted a lot better than how its portrayed, thanks to the crab sauce, ginger and caviar. Love how silky smooth the tofu tasted. 


Clam Soup - Steamed Eggs with Ohitashi Organic Wasabi Leaf and Asari Shell with Yuzu Orange Flavour

Drink some soup, we were told. Not just your usual run of the mill soup, but we had MINORI's Clam Soup which is made up of steamed eggs with Ohitashi Organic Wasabi Leaf and Asari Shell, in Yuzu Orange Flavour. I got a taste of the original taste of the clam, and while drinking the soup, I found delectable chawanmushi at the base. Not too salty, very savoury, this is pretty good stuff!

Not my cup of tea, but I was really intrigued with how soft they managed to make the beef tongue inside the Nimono - Tender Steamed Beef Tongue With Special Sauce dish. So tender, I love the sauce that came with this dish, together with the accompanied condiments. I must say, the chef is really skilful to be able to whip up this dish. 

Grilled White Miso marinated Butter Fish "Saikyo Yaki"

Up next, my favourite dish that afternoon. Coming from a non-seafood person like myself, this is really saying something, as we were served with the very delicious Grilled White Miso marinated Butter Fish "Saikyo Yaki". Loved how the marinated fish tasted so flaky and tender, doused in this sweet sauce with a caramelised skin. Paired with Vinegar Tomato, Wasabi Lotus Root and sweet potatoes, I wished I had another serving of this dish. 


Shokuji - Scallop Porridge Minori Style With Fried Cherry Blossom Prawn

I never knew a porridge dish can be so tasty. We were treated to the Scallop Porridge Minori Style With Fried Cherry Blossom Prawn, tasty yet not too thick. Using dried and fresh scallop, it's naturally sweet, not too heavy too. For the health conscious, this is the perfect dish for you. 

Warabi Mochi and Green Tea Parfait

A meal isn't complete without some sweet dessert. For this omakase meal, the chef prepared a glass of Warabi Mochi and Green Tea Parfait. The dessert has these strwaberries in it, together with adzuki beans, paired with chewy warabi mochi at the bottom. Not bad, perfect ending to a nice meal out at MINORI.
