Having to be back at The Palace of the Golden Horses can be such an amazing thing to encouter again. Even now I am able to recall my first food excursion here and that was when I was embarking into the real food blogging world. Upon that time I got the glipmpse to meet up with Chef Wilfred and also Chef Simon at Cavallini’s Bistro and that was 3 years ago. This round I am back strong, taking a divie into Kin No Uma for a pure pampering experience in indulging Japanese refined cuisine.

The Feast at KinNo Uma

beef tataki
Beef Tataki

My first pick to taste was the Beef Tataki as most of the dishes were already placed invitingly on the dining table. It was fun to see them coming after us for once. Tender in texture, just was something noteable here. It was well sealed, cooked the outer, raw in the centre. Perfectly excuted. the accompaied supreme soy sauce gave a fabulous enhancement to this dish. Nice.

Maguro Natto

It was just spectecular to watch this dice up tuna. Very rich in colour, intensified ruby red. Now here is my story, I love Japanese food but this dish Maguro Natto is my first eating experience. I had never tasted Japanese fermented soya bean with raw fish. well it was something rather unique in flavour and rich in texture. You just need to mix them up first before indulging them.

Sunomono Moriawase

Sunomono Moriawase sounded complicated for me but indulging them was such n easy job to execute. Yet here was another unique dish, assorted seafood, seaweed and cumber dressed over vinegar. A Japanese salad, classic and stylish.

Kuruma Ebi Motoyaki

Now this Kuruma Ebi Motoyaki caught my eye at one look, so intensified. Great colours and yet very attractive. Very pleasureable indeed. Well grilled smells good, tasted deliciously. Definitely a well executed grilled king prawn with mayonnaise sauce. Made my night very sexy.

Maruyama Tempura

I love tempura and that night I did not get to escape of not trying them out. Light fluffy deep fried battered of assorted seafood and vegetable. Well crunchy and goes so well with the dip. I could not resist of not eat another two more ppieces. Hey I toook the tempura prawns. “”wink””

Uma Hooseki Tsukuri Moriawase

Woh! this is a babe. I am a shashimi freak and Uma Hooseki Tsukuri Moriawase just taught me how to tango then the cha-cha. Luck I escape from doing the waltz. It was very succulent fresh. Thickly cut and taste so refined in texture. It was perfectly prepared raw fish experience. I mouth was filled with wasabi while lingering with the taste of rawness. :)

I just love the humour of the chef that night, Chef Khair. He is the one who was looking after us that night, he was cooking for us! He can speak Hokkien and Japanese yet another chef with 24years f Japanes cooking experience.. That night his Penang hulour just blended out inot the dining room, he is terribly funny, nice guy but with full of talent. I notice that! :) He even took time to explain us the refine details of each dish, Well done Chef! A toast from me.
