Food Review: Izakaya Kushi Raku @ TTDI

Izakaya Kushi Raku it's not a normal Japanese restaurant, it's a Traditional Japanese Yakitori Restaurant and Beer House / Japanese Grilled Bar.

The idea of Izakaya Kushi Raku is inspired from the Japanese, Izakaya (居酒屋) is a type of informal Japanese drinking establishment that serves food to accompany the drinks, their casual places for after-work drinking. Izakaya are sometimes called akachōchin (red lantern) in daily conversation, because these paper lanterns are traditionally found in front of them. Izakaya Kushi Raku (串楽) is a great place for socialising with friends and colleagues while enjoying variety fresh draught beers, sake, wines, whisky, brandy and more.

I love the interior is modern and fun with a lot of the Japanese touch. Sake bottles can be seen on top of the rack. Even the furniture is mostly custom made to bring cohesiveness to the whole ambience. The place is very relaxing and not too noisy, really a very nice place to chit-chat with friends.

Oh ya~! I forgot to tell you, I heard people say this place is famous with their sake and varieties of beers.

I tried the Gekkeikan Sake – RM19 (per jar), you may order in hot or cold, but I personally prefer the cold sake.

Ice cold Japanese beer/ sparkling sake

What best paired with ice cold Japanese beer or a sparkling sake? Skewers! No matter they are served with chicken, beef or pork, succulent pieces of meat on a stick grilled to perfection. Yummy~!!!

Let me share with you the appetizers before we jump to the skewers: 

Skate Fish (Eihire) – RM10
Taste like Ikan Bilis ^o^ You may try it

Snail meat (Chuaka Sazae Niku) – RM9
I just love the taste of the snail meat, it's very chewy.

Let me show you how they grilled the skewers:

Hungggggrrrryyyyyyy~!!! Makan Time ^_^

Chicken Wing Salt (Teba Shio) – RM7 (per stick)
This is delicious, MUST TRY!

Pork Belly Special (Bara Yaku to Age) – RM7 (per stick)
I love this, but it's a little too sweet.

Chicken Thigh Meat with Wasabi Mayo (Momo Wasabi Mayone-zu) – RM5 (per stick)
I personally love Wasabi a lot, that's why I love this.

Cherry Tomato (Cheri Tomato) – RM4 (per stick)
Never knew that cherry tomato can be served in this way, grilled sizzling with added some salt on top of it.

Beef Ribeye with Miso Sauce (Gyumiso) – RM11 (per stick)

Main Course:

Squid Stuffed Rice (Ikasaki Raisu Zume) – RM27

  1. I love the grilled rice ball with salmon and the chicken thigh with wasabi mayo hehe. Love your write up! Hope to see you again :)

  2. Advertising is your main tool to have the business ready to go. Actually, everybody is busy in their company marketing over the World Wide Web. Unfortunately, online company is scammed with scammers. On occasion the provider hires you freelance, or occasionally it is a site designer which orders the copy google At an identical time, if you decide on the most suitable company having excellent reviews and reputation, you will enjoy well composed works.

  3. Everything looks so tasty! I wish I could find a good Japanese restaurant in my city. Because my certified translation services job don't allow me to go to Japan and have a meal there. And all Japanese restaurants I know serve only sushi and ramen.
