Zipangu by Nadaman featuring Kaiseki cuisine by Chef Takayuki Oshima

Marv.7 Wednesday, October 18, 2017 , , , ,
Chef Takayuki Oshima, Group Executive Chef from Nadaman
If you have been following us diligently on Facebook and Instagram, you would have known about the visit of a great personage, the Award-winning Group Executive Chef from the Nadaman Group Japan, Chef Takayuki Oshima. The good chef was in Kuala Lumpur recently, to delight patrons of Zipangu Super Dining restaurant at the Shangri-la Hotel Kuala Lumpur with his Kaiseki Cuisine for the dinner set and special lunch menu set.

Chef Takayuki Oshima preparing his Kaiseki cuisine set
Chef Oshima has more than 40 years of experience in the Japanese Culinary scene and has won numerous awards, which includes the "Full Technician Meister" by the Japanese Technical Association 2013, "Excellent Technician - Tokyo Mesiter" by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government in 2015 and is recognised by the Japanese Government as the "Top class Japanese Cooking Technician". His culinary skills has also seen him prepare gourmet Japanese cuisine for the Japanese Imperial Family, notable country leaders as well as celebrities. 


Zipangu . Super Dining is set amidst the luxurious backdrop of the 5-star deluxe properties of the Shangri-La Hotel Kuala Lumpur. There are only two Zipangu outlets in the Nadaman Group, one in Tokyo and the other here in Kuala Lumpur.

The place exudes a serenity typical of the Zen philosophy of the Japanese people. the interiors are richly furnished with wood, water flows over stone and glass and there is even a bamboo garden. I was most impressed by the walls of glass bottles of wine and sake stacked from the floor to ceiling, and their impressive bar.



There are two private rooms and five semi-private enclaves separated from the main restaurant by timber battens. Be warned, Zipangu was such a comfortable place that I completely forgot the passage of time. Whilst in my pictures the ambience of Zipangu resembled one of a nice lazy afternoon when I took them, the environment in the place hardly changed as the time transitioned from afternoon to night. I suppose that is what happens when you indulge in yourself too much.


The Tokyo-styled basserie stands out for its spacious open kitchen which features separate counters for the preparations of sushi, teppanyaki and tempuras. Diners can of course opt to sit at these counters and watch the chefs work.


Readers Tip: Our favourites are accompanied with a ๐Ÿ‘ as an indication of WOW-Good taste!

Chef Oshima's dinner special at zipangu featured two signature course meals, an Eight-course dinner meal priced at RM580 nett and a Six-course dinner meal priced at RM380 nett.


The Eight-course dinner featured Sea Urchin Pudding, Goose Liver Teriyaki, Assorted Sushi and Sashimi, Seared Wagyu Beef, Prawn Teppanyaki, Smoked Trout Salad, Grilled Cream Cheese with Saikyo Miso, Glutinous Rice Balls with Grilled Eel, Japanese-style Wagyu Steak, Crab Meat Omelette Rice, Green Tea Ice Cream and more.

The Six-course dinner featured was similiar to the Eight-course dinner, but without certain items. It came with Goose Liver Teriyaki, Assorted Sushi and Sashimi, Seared Wagyu Beef, Prawn Teppanyaki, Japanese-style Wagyu Steak, Crab Meat Omelette Rice, Green Tea Ice Cream.

The texture of the Kaiseki cuisine was very fine, one would almost say smooth and butter-like as they melt in the mouth. It was neither overly sweet and savory, but had a wonderful subtle complexity of flavour, one which you could sit back, relax and savour. Simply put, it was amazing!

Amuse - Crab Meat and Tomato Salad with Crab Miso Tofu ๐Ÿ‘


Appetiser - Assorted Sushi in order of presentation; Goose Liver Teriyaki, Seared Wagyu Beef and Tuna Belly with Caviar ๐Ÿ‘

Brooklyn Day Out! At the RWG SkyAvenue

Chelsea Chil, former Miss Malaysia Queen of the World
Hi! And welcome back to another installment of my write-ups, about visiting Resorts World Genting (RWG). Regular readers would know that sometime in the beginning of this year, I was invited up to RWG to usher in the New Year and learn more about the exciting things that are happening to this resort city. One of the best things I discovered up here was the opening of an outlet, Motorino Pizzeria Malaysia, straight from New York City! And if you haven't, you can read more about that blog posting here.

Well, to celebrate the official opening of Motorino Pizzeria Malaysia, they threw a party! Now, how cool is that? It was a great event, I had the chance to head up and enjoy some great foods and music with my blogging fam. I even got the chance to meet up with Chelsea Chil, former Miss Malaysia Queen of the World!


At the entrance to the party, one floor above Motorino! We partied from the afternoon all the way into the late evening.


One part of the SkyAvenue was given over to the hosting of this event, where the surroundings were decked out with Brooklyn-themed art and deco. There were even hotspots for taking photographs worthy of Facebook and Instagram!


There were performances by Kyoto Protocol, RYร–T JONES, Radio 3000, Octopus Dance Crew, Dan Shiv, Rigot Jones and Zamaera as well as the appearance of favourites from the Hitz Morning Crew! They asked me where I was from, I cheekily told them I was Spanish~ lols.


Best part of the day were the stalls of food! For myself, I was after Motorino's Meatballs! I fell in love with these when I first had them at the beginning of the year, they were insanely good!


Motorino Chicken Meatballs when I had them at their pizzeria. They were so good, the waiting lines just grew and were long~

There were also booths for taking instant photographs, temporary Body Art Tattoo and even a sit-in live caricature portrait booth.


You can check out more photos of this event here. Meanwhile, about halfway through the party, we left to check out the Winch Show, which was located at the entrance of the SkyAvenue. They were literally AMAZEBALLS of lights suspended from the stories-high ceiling by winches, which were winched up and down in synchronised in movement to a stories-high LED screened videos and music to animate shapes. Like... WOW!


#ExcitingThingsAreHappening up in RWG, you would be wise to follow their schedule of events and drive up for one weekend overnight stay of fun and entertainment with the family and loved ones. For myself, stay tuned as I uncover more exciting events and happenings for Everyday Food I Love. Until the next visit, thank you for having me RWG! ~ Marv.7
