Momochan Japanese Restaurant @ The Square, Jaya One
So recently we were over at Momochan, a pork free Japanese Restaurant over at The Square, Jaya One to try out their festive Christmas offerings. Now I’ve always found myself over at Jaya One more often than not recently, due to their range of eateries available. Check out my thoughts on this restaurant.

The unique thing about Momochan is the fact that they have a pet-friendly section for diners to dine in with their furkids. This is something you don’t see often being made available by restaurants. Momochan serves Japanese Donburi, Teishoku, Japanese Karaage and Japanese Desserts, good stuff which are bound to satiate your appetite for Japanese cuisine.
We were treated to the Japanese Karaage Winglets as starters, a perfect start to a good dining experience at Momochan. These winglets were marinated with soy sauce, sake and ginger before being deep fried to a golden brown colour. Have it with some chilled beer, they go well together!
|Japanese Karaage Winglets - RM12.90|
We tried out the Shitake mushroom with Nanban sauce next, good stuff. Flavourful and tasty, the chicken breast meat really went well with the Shitake Namban.

Chawanmushi, these are good piping hot cups awesomeness which must come with every Japanese meal. We tried the ones at Momochan, and my, was it different from the usual ones we’ve had. The ones here, they infused wasabi and yuzu chili inside, and topped with a layer of dash stock, there’s a differentiate and flavour the other otherwise rather plain tasting chawanmushi. Lovely indeed.

Momochan’s Christmas Beef Special
Served on a plate, looking really tempting, Momochan’s Christmas Beef Special features a good 150g piece of Australian Tenderloin which is pan seared, sous vide then char grilled. Not overly done, there’s still lots of redness to the meat. Japanese ponzu and grated radish sauce were served together to lend that Japanese hint to the dish.

If you’re dining at Momochan, then you must try out their Japanese Southern Fried Chicken! I was told the Japanese do include this dish in as part of their Christmas meal. We were served with a whole piece of quarter chicken marinated in buttermilk, battered and fried till golden brown perfection. On the side you’ll get some wasabi coleslaw and their homemade mashed potato with chicken gravy.

For vegetarians, fret not, as over at Momochan, you could try out this vegetarian pasta dish, aptly named the “Momochan Loves Vegetables” dish. Served with tomato sauce and creamy pumpkin puree, generous amounts of tempura enoki mushroom were added in to lend that crunch texture to the dish.

|Belgian Chocolate Ice Cream|
We ended our meal over at Momochan with dessert, in the form of their Belgian Chocolate Ice Cream. The next time you’re in the vicinity of Jaya One, do try out Momochan Japanese Restaurant!
