Daikanyama at Changkat

Yesterday (Sunday), I went to KL to meet up with Ted. We met for breakfast then we hit the gym at Lot 10 after that.

After lunch, I needed to send my car to the workshop, again. I’ll blog about my car soon.

Then I went to meet up with Kah Wai at this Japanese restaurant called Daikanyama situated at Changkat Bukit Bintang.

We had our dinner before we catch a Japanese movie — Dance, Subaru.

I like the restaurant very much. Nice interior design, nice food and nice bosses. What can you ask for more?


Besides dining here, it’s a good place to hang out with friends and have a drink or two. They serve all kinds of liqueur, from sake to shoju, from whisky to wine and from beer to stout.

We sat beside a glass wall which separates us from a small smoking zone.

I love the design of the menu. It depicts the map of the Tokyo subway system. Each coloured line represents a category of food and each station represents a dish.


I ordered the Salmon Fried Rice (RM14). It tastes normal to me.

Kah Wai ordered the Mini Okonomi Yaki, the Japanese style seafood pancake (RM15). This 1 tastes very nice. Lots of seafood with the sweet sauce and mayonnaise topping.

Kah Wai had a bottle of sake. She finished it all by herself because sake is just too strong for me.


The Chinese (or maybe Japanese) character on the bottle means drunk. Hahaha… humour…

I had the Choya Umeshu with soda (Japanese plum liqueur). The taste is so good I think it’s better than any soft drink in the market.

Guess I’m addicted to Choya.

Looking at the benefits of drinking Choya like aid digestion, increase metabolic rate and promote better sleep, I think I’m going to get a bottle soon.
