Just a few days ago I managed to catch up with the tasting of the Malaysia International Gourmet Festival 2013 at MIDORI Japanese Restaurant that serve delicious Tokyo-Style Japanese cuisine. I got to say I had been wanting to dine here at MIDORI as I heard lots of great reviews about their food. As usual with my tight schedule it was hard to schedule to dine here but at last I made it.
Having to calm myself with excitement came marching in was my first dish, the cold appetizer. Tenderly pink sliced Maguro wrapped with seaweed coated with sesame seeds had a fabulous soft biting refreshing texture. It seated at one corner while a piece of eye bulging pan fried wagyu tucked neatly over a slice of crackling lotus root on the opposite end. It was a great starting menu and I was amazed.
Wow then came their hot appetizer making it’s way through the restaurant safely and landed well just in front of me. It was elegant and so eye beautiful to watch. The silky smooth avocado mushi when so well with my expectation and having the present of the black caviar had me flying right to heaven. I liked how robust it was made and the flavour was just perfect. The prawn played so well and hold this dish excellently, just a look you know it was fantastic.
Glued tightly to my chair I was waiting for my soup and we were served with a nice beautiful claypot. My neighbour was amazed when it arrived. The bonito consomme tasted deliciously and had a great light pungent flavour. A hint of rind of lime enhanced the taste too. Tasted the Inari Chicken pouch and it was really good, tasty !
The stuffed Quail my neighbour had looked exciting. The stuffing looked refreshing and sexy. They liked it and gave the seal of approval and a thumbs up.
The Baaramundi was poached to the right texture, soft and not fishy. The sweet ginger sauce paired well with the fish and gave the fish a beautiful flavour. Not a bad pick.
I like Japanese ingredients being flushed into western dessert, here wasabi creme brulee was put on stage and they had it done perfectly, soft and smooth silky. Forking into the matcha mocha was great while the bean soup was not overly sweet, nice.
MIDORI’s selection menu for this year’s MIGF is truly delicious and I just love my tasting adventure here. Brilliant !
