Signature Fuyu  Course Menu @ Nagomi Japanese Restaurant, Menara Hap Seng

Don’t know what to have for dinner? Head over to Nagomi Japanese Restaurant in Menara Hap Seng for their Signature Fuyu  Course menu! 5 delicious courses… Terry (Red FM Drive), Alvin (Photographer) and I did.

It’s homestyle, traditional Japanese cuisine with modern touches, in a contemporary cozy setting.

Perfect for any occasion, be it a business meeting, a family gathering, a night to hang out with friends, or even to impress a date!

The menu looked just scrumptious, and we couldn’t wait to get started! You can  opt for authentic Japanese beer to accompany your meal… It certainly kept Terry company while he drooled over the menu!

Or for larger groups, supersized bottles of Sake will ensure you leave with a big grin on your face!

 

Signature Fuyu Course Menu – 5 courses

刺身、寿司&巻き

Sashimi, Sushi & Maki

Import fresh Norwegian Salmon, Sake Sushi, Sake Maki


A wonderful way to start your meal, with three different styles of salmon.

Fresh salmon sashimi, sushi with salmon and cress, and a tasty roll of salmon, cress and Japanese mayonnaise wrapped in seaweed.

 

牡蠣にんにくマ一ヨ焼き

Kaki Ninniku Mayo Yaki

Grilled oysters with Miso Paste with Garlic on half shell


If you like oysters, you’ll love this. Baked with a rich, creamy miso paste and sprinkled with toasted garlic for that added crunch.

浅蜊貝味噌汁

Asari Miso Soup

Japanese clam in Miso Bean Paste soup (8 pcs Asari)


I love Miso soup, and I love clams, so I particularly enjoyed this dish. It’s a sizeable portion of steaming hot aromatic miso broth, with seaweed, diced spring onions and succulent clams. Terry and I both licked the bowl clean.

銀鱈西京焼き

Gindara Saikyo Yaki

Cod fish marinated with Japanese Miso Paste


We both really appreciated the unusual presentation style of the cod, wrapped in a leaf and baked. The fleshy fish fillet was well marinated and extremely flavoursome, with a lovely caramelized layer on top.

デザ一ト

Signature Dessert of the Day

Home made Almond Tofu by our chef.


Again, beautifully presented, and just delicious. Terry and I both don’t care much for almond desserts, but this was deliciously velvety and mild, with just a hint of sweet scented almond in the tofu.

We decided to try some items from Nagomi’s a la carte menu as well, as they’re too good to resist. You’ll find Salads, Sushi, Sashimi, Nabemono, Kushiyaki, Yakimono, Teppanyaki, Agemono, Nimono & Zousui, Oshikuji.

First, a selection from the Kushiyaki (Barbecue) section.

You get 2 skewers for every item ordered.

We had prawns…

We had squid…

We had salmon…

And juicy, succulent mushrooms and ginko nuts.

All lightly grilled and salted to enhance the natural flavour of the produce. Terry and I first tried Beef Tongue at Nagomi Jaya 33, (read about it here) and when we spotted a sizzling version here, we jumped at the chance to try it.

I don’t know what it is about beef tongue, but I just love it.

The chewy texture, the meaty taste, and even better, the gorgeous smell that radiates as it sizzles before your very eyes.

A quick flip and it’s done, all within a matter of seconds.

Just as quickly as it’s cooked, it disappears down own throats and into our bellies.

We wolfed down the plump grains of fragrant Garlic Fried Rice. Carbs and garlic, well the combination never fails to satisfy!

I thoroughly enjoyed savouring every bite of the Soft Shell Crab Maki.

Beautiful pearls of roe and crunchy soft shell crab make this familiar favourite a winner.

Lastly,  sizzling Seafood Teppanyaki.

Prawns, fish, squid and clams seared before your very eyes in a thick but mild garlic chilli sauce.

I certainly recommend giving the Nagomi Fuyu Course meal a try. Perfect for any occasion!

Thank you Eddie and the team for your hospitality!

  3. Well,what a warm smile and inviting look. Places as this I would never get tire of coming to dine.
    Have you notice the man with beer sitting infront of him has gained a little protein on him.I guess good life can make your mind & soul lighten up.
    The lady beside him always look the best,very professional.
    Nagomi Son,your restaurant with them is going to grow,guest will be coming like storming cloud.

    By the way,please tell Nisha,I like her late night love songs,it really can make you want to fly up in the blue sky feeling the freedom of screaming I’m in Love.
