This is a photo-loaded post, and hope you enjoy the full post, and can see why I needed more time to edit and select the photos!:)
I was craving for Japanese lately; it is no surprise seeing that I was having one Japanese meal after another!
Hubby was really sweet to arrange for a lovely meal at one of the finest Japanese restaurants on the island and maybe in the country on my birthday this year, thank you!:)
Kampachi Japanese Restaurant, located inside the 5-star Equatorial Hotel on Bukit Jambul, is reputed to be one of the top restaurants serving one of the finest Japanese food.
Coincidentally, the hotel was where I held my wedding banquet, enjoyed the finest Chinese dim sum and cuisine, relaxed in their lounge, and also celebrated our engagement.
So, you can see how this place really means to me? :) Perhaps my review may be a little biased here, or maybe I am in more of a celebrating mood rather than reviewing?:p
The ambience inside the restaurant was designed to simulate that of a typical Japanese home/restaurant and was really welcoming.
Even the waiters and waitresses are dressed in Kimonos and wearing clogs around the restaurant

It was mashed sardines; but it tasted scrumptious!:)
Mandatory Green tea to complete my Japanese meal
Fresh salad to start our meal
The Kampachi Bento (MYR74)
(Kobachi, Salad, Assorted Sashimi, Egg Roll, Assorted Fried Seafood, Vegetables Takiawase, Eel Kabayaki, Grilled Miso Salmon, Teriyaki Chicken, Chawan Mushi, Rice, Miso Soup, Pickles)
The portion was quite big, and the varieties were just well-proportioned.
The following are the closer shots of each of them:
This is by far one of the most smooth egg custard I have ever tasted; and it is just so silky that it slips through one's tongue and into the throat immediately!
Yes, it is THAT silky smooth and fine!:)
Fresh fruits: Papaya, Watermelon, Green Apple
Teriyaki Chicken and Miso Salmon
Assorted Tempura/Fried Seafood and Vegetables
Teppanyaki Lunch Set: Prawn And Salmon Set (MYR48)
(Kobachi, Chawan Mushi, Miso Soup, Main Course, Garlic Rice, Assorted Vegetables, Fruits)
The rice was quite fragrant and tasty with the teppanyaki set.
The prawns are medium in size and tasted really juicy and succulent! Hmmm, I could still remember the taste like I've just had it :)
Miso soup was a little salty though; a pity as I love Miso soup!
Itadakimasu !! (いただきます)
