Kameya Japanese Restaurant, Federal Bowl

Apologies for the lousy picture quality I had some problems with my old phone and had to use a phone with an even worse camera! I've since bought a brand spanking new phone with a great camera so expect better pictures next time.

If you're like me Kameya Japanese Restaurant is one of those places that you pass by often but never ventured in because you are intimidated by their pricing. Well be intimidated no more as they offer set lunches for RM9.90. Not really a steal as you don't really get much but the food was very good and is sufficiently filling. But the lady boss (waitress?) there tried to trick us.

Kameya is located in the Federal Bowl building right next to Low Yat Plaza.

We went in expecting to try out their set lunches but we were not presented the set lunch menu. Most restaurants tuck it in together with their main menu or paste it around prominently in their premises... not this place. I asked the lady who served us about the set lunch and she said it was not served on Sundays and then she went on about how they have the set lunches to cater specifically for the office lunch crowd. Fair enough except it was a Saturday afternoon and nowhere was it written that the set lunch is for weekdays only. In fact they have ads pasted at several locations in Low Yat Plaza but none of they have the words "excluding Sundays".

Now it's not because I was cheap (though I usually am) or anything but the reason why we went in to the restaurant was specifically to try out the set lunches so we decided to leave and the second we got up the lady boss offered to serve us the set lunches! Well no complaints from me... objective achieved. We ordered a rice dish with pork and another similar one with chicken and both were good... especially the pork.

Slices of thin pork with lots of onions, served on a hot plate.

The chicken was not as great as the pork but it stands on its own... just don't compare them!

Must be the best Miso Soup I have ever had. Each of those red spots you see in the picture is a whole tiny mushroom. The mushrooms were really delightful. I've never seen anyone use them before so I have no idea what they are called.

We also ordered some green tea which came up to RM2.50 per head. Most other places serve greeen tea for free but then we got our own pot with the tea leaves inside and the green tea was quite good. After adding in taxes and the service charge the bill came up to about RM29.

The set lunches are well worth checking out. I'm a little unhappy about the lady trying to trick me and ST and I would advise you to be a little careful about them.

Hey! You were at Low Yatt on Sat? So were we but since we had to stop by KLCC, we grabbed a very quick meal there.

I always pass by Kameya too and wondered abt it as people in Low Yatt seem to favour the chan tengs instead. The small brown mushrooms are called nameko mushrooms.
