Yuzu

Yuzu, as I always portray it, is a Japanese fine dining restaurant in The Gardens Mall, Mid Valley City. From the entrance to the dining area to the counter bar, there’s Japanese essence embedded in the decoration in each and every nook of the restaurant that lightens up the dining mood. It is also a class above the rest when it compares to other Japanese restaurants like Sushi Zanmai and Sushi Tei.

Yuzu

If it weren’t for this post, the chances of me dining in this restaurant are close to zero as the price range does not really go well with my wallet. Besides, it has been awhile since I last had shabu-shabu. Hence, the choice was imminent when I was in The Gardens Mall for dinner on one rainy evening.

Yuzu Promotion Banner

For RM98++, it’s all you can eat affair/promotion for pax of 2. One gets to choose between beef and/or fish (salmon and yellowtail). Apart from those, a plate full of vegetables and a bowl of udon are given. Yes, they are refillable too!

Steamboat Broth / Soup

The broth was light and simple when it came to our table with a portable stove below it. Be warned that there are a couple of sliced lemon peels in it to freshen up the soup. So, if you don’t fancy those (peels), do remove it before you begin your cooking process.

Vegetables

Udon

The heaps of vegetables (cabbages, enoki and shitake mushrooms, carrots and spring onions) were fresh while there were a couple of beancurds.

Sliced Beef

The beef was thinly sliced and hence, it required a quick dip to get it cooked nicely without getting too rubbery. Fish meat was not picked during the meal and hence I’m not too sure about the freshness of it. But I guess they are as fresh as the sliced beef.

Dipping Sauce

I like their dipping sauce particularly as it was nutty, salty yet slight bitter aftertaste. It went very well with the cooked meat.

Oyako MakiOyako Maki (RM18)

Apart from that, we ordered Oyako Maki (RM18). It came in three sushi rice wrapped beautifully with sliced fresh salmon and topped with tobiko of different flavours.

Yuzu Shabu Shabu Set

In total, my friend and I consumed 13 plates of sliced beef, 3 plates of vegetables and half bowl of udons… and of course, the Oyako Maki. All of those in less than an hour. I reckon we could do more damage but we were not in optimum condition on that day. But you should look at the waitresses’ facial expression when we were asking for more beef within minutes after the previous plate of beef has arrived. LOL! I’m not sure how long does this promotion last but I guess you should try it while it’s still on.

  4. Not a fan of Shabu Shabu as those that I’ve been to – too much msg, not to my liking.

  5. suituapui : You should give this a try. I doubt there’s any msg (if not little) in the soup.
