Yuritei Japanese Restaurant, Sentul West

ST and I first noticed this restaurant when we saw a sign in front of Lot 10's entrance advertising a Japanese restaurant with food that costs about RM15 per person which is not uncommon for Japanese dining in Malaysia. Funny thing was that the restaurant was located nowhere near the Bukit Bintang area.

Rather it was in Sentul or to be specific in Sentul West, one of YTL group's high-class residential projects. If you're familiar with the area around Jalan Ipoh, you can't miss the entrance (you'll know when you see it). Anyways just drive in past the guard house and follow the signs leading to the KL Performing Arts Centre (KLPAC). Once you reach KLPAC you can see the restaurant right at the end. There's also a Koi farm there with loads of Japanese carps.

The restaurant is uniquely housed in a Japanese hut.

Another shot of the restaurant.

The restaurant serves noodles (ramen) and some varieties of rice with a limited selection of sushi and temaki. Expect to spend about RM20 per person. Food will be about RM15 while drinks are at an overpriced RM5 average. Why overpriced, you ask? How many other places charge you RM5 for a cup of Green Tea?

Orange juice, RM6 each. I think they came from a Sunkist orange pack ;)

Here be the chilli powder people usually add to their ramen. The white powder is pepper.

Kimchi Ramen. The kimchi taste could have been better but the ingredients they put with the ramen is good. Besides from kimchi there was seaweed, prawns, egg and even bamboo shoots. The prawns weren't fresh but it was a very filling bowl of noodles.

Something that I can't help ordering... gyoza. The filling tastes good. There's a veggie in there that most other places will not put. Not sure what it's called in English but in Cantonese it's called 'Gau Choi Far'.

Garlic Fried Rice with Fried Chicken. Best thing about this dish was actually the Miso Soup... where you can find some carrots, radishes and bamboo shoots.

Drop in to Sentul West some time to take a look and if it's lunch time go try out Yuritei. It's a little expensive but the food is worth it if only because they do things a little better than most Japanese Restaurants out there.

More about Sentul West in my next post.

celine: I don't really have the address. But if you're familiar with Jalan Ipoh in KL you should be able to find this place easily. If you know where Sentul West is then the restaurant is just inside. Once you enter Sentul West drive right towards the end.
