Tenjin Japanese Cuisine @ Grand Millenium Hotel KL

This is a revisit of Tenjin at Grand Millenium Hotel in KL which is conveniently located just beside Pavilion on Jalan Bukit Bintang. They now have a new chef and we are curious about the changes it brings to the restaurant.

Eihire RM32
Grilled Sting Ray Fin - Savoury and perfect as starters to go with the sake.

Potato Salad RM12
I've always like the potato salad here with a powdery texture.

Salmon Salad RM38
Fresh salmon slices with greens and mushroom topped with ebiko.

As for the sashimi moriawase, we had an assorted serving of Kanpachi (amberjack), Tai (red snapper), hotate (scallops), Maguro (tuna). The sashimi ranges from RM30-50 for 5pcs. The green leaves that are used to decorate the platter is called Perilla or Shiso in Japan and should be eaten together with the sashimi to prevent or cure seafood poisoning. It tasted a little minty.

Tempura Mori
Assorted tempura fried to a crispy golden batter

Unagi Kabayaki (grilled eel) and Saba Shioyaki (Grilled Mackerel with salt)
Normal portions are served at RM78 and RM28 respectively.

Asari Miso Soup RM10
A short neck clam with miso soup. The short neck clam that night was not at its best that night.

Garlic Fried Rice RM12
A little expensive for a bowl of fried rice but I enjoyed every morsel of this fragrant fried garlic served with japanese rice.

Gyu Shougayaki RM38
Stir-fried sliced beef with ginger sauce and topped with sesame.

The last additional order that we had that night was the Sanma shioyaki where the pacific saury is salt grilled and I liked it with a little lemon juice. The fish was perfectly grilled and the tip is to savour its belly because it's the best part of the sanma.

My friends got this sake for our indulgence that night. I just can't believe how much I have drank that night as shots came after shots. For just the 5 of us, we had 2 bottles of this 1800ml sake.

It's worth coming here to try out the dishes from the new chef. The menu remains pretty much the same except some chef specials.

Hey, I didn't know that the leaves are supposed to be eaten together with sashimi to prevent seafood poisoning!

I mean, I do eat them but I didn't know it was for that reason.

Learn something new everyday.

Cheers Eiling! :)

Like Huai Bin, I didn't know either. Food looks great here. Not really into Japanese but wouldn't mind once in a while for a change.
