Hamachi Japanese Restaurant @ Langkawi

The story begins like this... during my first business trip visit to Langkawi, my distributor took me to this Telaga Harbour Park to have a look and I instantly fell in love with this place. There's a strip of restaurants here and the previously I've blogged about one of the outlets here which is The Loaf. So, during the first visit, I told Chef Goh that I would return to try his restaurant on my next visit - which I did! This is my 2nd time having dinner at this place.

Night & Day

There are in fact about 6-7 restaurants here including a Tapas place, Italian restaurant, Chinese restaurant, a Russian restaurant and The Loaf which serves western and local cuisine. All the restaurants have an indoor and alfresco dining that overlooks the yatching marina.

The perfect setting for a whisky & cigar!

The liquor here is so cheap that it'll be a sin not to drink! Everytime I'm in Langkawi, I had to pay a visit to the liquor shop to buy a bottle and even the lady in the shop had recognised me by my 3rd visit! Having dinner alone is really boring and thus I asked the chef to join me. During my recent visit, he asked me if I am ok with eating "workers' food" which is food that he & his workers will be having for dinner and I said why not?!! So I had a sweet and sour fish and a grilled sambal fish that night in a Japanese restaurant!

Glenfiddich 15 was found to quite a nice drink. It's matured in three types of casks (traditional American bourbon, Portuguese sherry and new oak) and is married in a large Solera vat, made of Oregon pine. It has a full and fruity nose, with delicate honey and vanilla notes. Very elegant and smooth too. I think I easily had more than 5 glasses that night. After that, I was still feeling a bit peckish and so I ordered somemore dishes.

Chicken meatballs during my 1st visit...
Although I was surprised why this is served at a Japanese place, it's actually quite a nice snack when having drinks!

Baked Salmon in foil with tangerine & ginger sauce
The salmon came with the teppanyakki set and has fire surrounding the foil to keep the fish warm. The salmon absorbs the flavours well. Fascinating.

Sushi Pizza
He called this sushi pizza because of the various colours. Even Datuk Azhar Mansor ordered this for takeaway when I was having mine. But to me, I still prefer those in KL.

Grilled Ribeye

I was dissatisfied with the yakitori beef which was too dry and I asked if he could make a beef dish off the menu. I wanted the beef to be grilled to a medium and lightly salted and with some garlic. The chef had to grill this himself to make sure that it's exactly what I wanted. It turned out very well and it was tender and delicious.

After the beef, I was quite contented and full and thus proceed to more drinking. Then, he asked me if I would like to join his other group of customers whom is running a shrimp farm in Langkawi and I said "why not?" since I was drinking alone, why not get some company. There were 5 of them and they were there for dinner. In the end, I ended up having another round of dinner with them!

Shrimps with salad
They supplied these shrimps and insist that I tried them. It was really fresh and succulent although they are not really that big.

After that, we had a few more dishes and one of them is an interesting dish which looked like fried onion but it was actually shredded carrots. I asked if they used a machine to shred the carrots because it was really fine and the chef told me that he does it mannually. As usual, I won't believe it until I see it and so he was very willing to demonstrate.

Don't play play...
He could really slice the carrot so thinly! The knife was so sharp that it chipped my nail when I was trying to shred the carrots!

The dinner ended at midnight and then they took me to Sun bar for some partying till 3am! It was really a nice evening as I do not expect to make some friends in Langkawi this way. Now I won't be so bored anymore. It's really a bummer to be dining alone!

Prices are pretty much like the KL standard. Teppanyakki sets starts from RM25-30, and dishes range from RM5. You can even order a Lobster and prawn sashimi here which are according to the seasonal prices. Honestly this is not the best Japanese restaurant compared to KL standards but this is pretty good if you want to have Japanese food on the island with a nice ambiance like this.

Although there is fresh supply of seafood in Langkawi but hardly find a good restaurant that could do justice to the fresh supply.

Sean said...

hamachi ... hamachi ... amazingly, there isn't any japanese restaurant in kl which shares that name (so far)! :D

eiling lim said...

Anon: Yeah but then if you go to the chinese "tai chow" type restaurants, they do serve very fresh seafood. It's live from the tank.

Sean: Yeah there's no Hamachi in KL! And according to him it's a name of the yellow tail fish.

well hard to find a restaurant where u can make friends with the chef like u do!

eiling lim said...

Joe: yeah.. some chefs are very unfriendly but I was lucky that I usually meet friendly chefs.

Hi, I was there in Langkawi last weekend for a working cum holiday trip. I was in fact staying at Telaga Harbour, The Danna. It is a soon-to-be opened hotel in Langkawi. It is the white majestic looking building near The Loaf. It is very beautiful. Going to open soon. Next time, while you are in Langkawi, can visit The Danna. Some pics that I took :-

thule a.k.a leo said...

I don't think that you have difficulty in making friends :)

eiling lim said...

Wei Ling: OOh it's opened already? I thought it's next month! I can see it's a very beautiful and EXPENSIVE hotel!! Will check it out. Thanks.

Thule: :P hehe.. not usually a difficulty but sometimes it require more effort!

suituapui said...

Food looks good for a Japanese restaurant - not a fan of that. Prices same as KL...that's bad. Kuah is not a city...and it's duty free, should be cheaper! Wanna slaughter the tourists, I guess...

CUMI & CIKI said...

taufulou said...

Huai Bin said...

I love the way you travel Eiling! Asking the chef to join you. That's awesome, can get insights on the kitchen and how he cooks. :)
