Sugimoto@Desa Sri Hartamas, KL

I got to know about Sugimoto last year when eric told me about a japanese restaurant that serves good japanese food but is rather costly. However, their set lunches are very reasonable, just that I'm not working near there, hence didnt get to try it...
I did go to Sugimoto for dinners a couple of times, and finally, recently, remembered to bring my camera along..hehe
I cant really remember the names of the food we have ordered, I shall try my very best to name and describe it..;)
We had Kinoko garlic to snack on... Sliced mixed mushrooms cooked with garlic, butter and pepper. Squeeze that lil lemon to give this dish a slightly refreshing flavour. This is just ok for me though, as I feel the chef was way too generous with the pepper..
SF ordered the Kamameshi set (RM35)...
The rice (with ingredients) are served to you in a metal pot. You'll need to wait for the rice to cook for about 15 mins before you can dig in...
Tahdah! Nasi sudah masak! (rice is cook) Mix it up like claypot rice, and it's ready to eat. This set was alright, but I preferred the other kamameshi with chicken and egg (i think) which was really tasty..
The Hokkaido and Nabeyaki set (RM35) was quite a large serving.. The salmon was really fresh; the rice at the bottom sure was tasty with the mix of salmon roe and tuna flakes as accompaniment..The noodles on the other hand, was smooth and lovely to slurp it down with the warm soup. Simple but tasty dish..
Wanted to try something different during this visit, we had the Kamo Jyu Jyu.. well, if I had the name wrong, this is how it looks like..
Slices of raw duck meat topped with mustard sauce to be cook in the mini pan provided.
The sliced breast meat looks yummy and we started cooking it immediately. Once cooked, you can have it plain or dipped in their sauce. It's tasty; strong flavours from the duck, tangy tart taste of the mustard makes this dish rather delectable..
Note though, avoid this dish if you're going to meet your hot date/ friends coz you'll smell of oil...
On my previous visit, we had the dragon roll which was really good. Decided to order another roll to try, hence the California eel roll. Such disappointment..
Just look at the presentation! I could not believe my eyes, they actually had the cheek to serve us this. We waited a long time for this as they've forgotten our orders and after the long wait, we got this sad looking stuff. Suffice to say, I didnt enjoy this roll...
Total bill was RM142
Sugimoto is located at 36-1 & 38-1, Jalan 27/70A, Desa Sri Hartamas, KL. Tel: 03-23001102

I'd love the mushrooms... more pepper please! There's no such thing as too much pepper, esp. black pepper in my book. ;)

joe: i've never taken their lunch sets..ala carte dinner is fine though, the sashimi that we had were fresh...

lyrical lemongrass: i've tried other stuff which are good..they got a rather extensive menu, lotsa choices. pricing's ok :)

kenny: hoho, so you're a pepper man! ;p i love mushrooms, but not too much pepper though..

I like the idea of serving Kamo Jyu Jyu... own involvement of cooking can actually enhance the flavour..hehhee

Mmm...Rakuzen has a better ambiance. Smell of oil? If your bf is into fried food, he'll say "You smell good enough to eat!" LOL....

I remember eating here when they first opened. Was fascinated with their kanimeshi rice as it was the 2nd place I knew in town which had it. The other one is in Subang Jaya.

The few times we ate there, felt the environment wasn't great as it was very stuffy and hot. Somehow, we kinda forgot abt it ever since and not been back. Time to revisit one day and hopefully the air cond is better now.
