Last week on the 28th of August 2010 ( Saturday ), Me and my dear friend Evon or better known as Phui Leng took a trip to Kuala Lumpur to meet our long time best friend Cassandra, who just left for New Zealand Last Tuesday ( 31st August 2010 ) and also another friend of ours, Mun Yee..
I suggested taking the airplane, as it was safer especially during the 7th Lunar Month on the Chinese calendar which marks the Hungry Ghost Festival..

It was both our second time taking the plane..We were both young when we had our first flight, so we were excited during the second time..
We took the 1455 flight which departs from Penang International Airport on Saturday..

A View of AK5363

Actually we took a picture of the plane after the arrival..the plane which took us to Kuala Lumpur was the AK5363..!!

A View From Seat No.16A

Here's a view from the place where I was seated..which was facing directly the wings of the aircraft..As you can see..we are still at the airport awaiting passengers to board the plane..

Phui Leng and Me

I was busy snapping pictures around the plane..and I decided to have one with Phui Leng..! Look at our can tell we were excited to go to KL..

On Air

Look..! We are on air now..High above the clouds..We can barely see any land..What I love about this picture is that..I was able to capture the unique designs of clouds..

Upon our arrival after about 40minutes, Sandra came to picked us up..together with Pooi Sin..and her dog..=) She was on time to picked us up..and we head on to her house to refresh ourselves..Then we contact Mun Yee..who suggested we go to Munakata Restaurant for Dinner..!! So off we go..

Munakata Signboard

Finally we reached Munakata Japanese Restaurant after about half hour of travelling..

Main Entrance Decorations

Japanese garden Decorations are right before the entrance of the restaurant

Sake Bottles and Various Japanese Wines

There are sake bottles and various japanese wines which are on display right after the entrance of the restaurant..

Basic Table Settings

We settled down at a table for six..However, there were only five of us, Sandra, Me, Phui Leng, Mun Yee and her boyfriend XK..

Cute Ocha Cup

The Ocha ( Green Tea ) Cup..looks so cute and looks the same as the dhobi mushi bowl for soup..

Chawan Mushi

We decided to order almost everything on the there were limited choices..which goes up to around 30+ choices..and the first one to arrive was the Chawan Mushi which are made up of Steamed Eggs..


Kakiage's are mixed vegetables which are fried in Crispy batter..One of my favourite..!

Umaki Tamago

Umaki Tamago is made up of Grilled Unagi with cooked Egg..This dish did not really attract my attention, but Phui Leng said the Tamago tasted too sweet..


The next one would be the Yakitori, which are Grilled Skewered Chicken with Yakitori Sauce..tasted slightly sweet and salty..but it would be better if the chicken are slightly more tender..

Hotate No Butter Shoyu Yaki

Here's a dish which I would recommend to my readers..Grilled Scallops with Butter and Soya Sauce..the butter which accompanied the Scallops makes the dish smells good and it tasted delicious too..! Another one of my favourites..!

Salmon Sashimi

Salmon Sashimi ( Up Closed )

I can't remember the amount of times we ordered the Salmon Sashimi..But I guess it was around 6-7 times..I can say that this is everyone's favourite dish..!
The Salmons are fresh..and it does not smell fishy at all..


Shishamo is actually grilled smelt fish..which is also known as pregnant fish..It comes with two fishes per portion..
Not really my cup of I remembered tasting Shishamo once,and I didn't like it..same goes to Phui Leng..
However, Sandra and Mun Yee loves it..

Seafood Salad

Phui Leng ordered the Seafood Salad as she felt like having vegetables..

Soft Shell Crab Tempura

Ahh..Here's another dish that I would recommend to my readers..the Soft Shell Crab Tempura..Soft Shell Crab has always been my favourite..and the one which is served at Munakata..tasted fresh..however, it would be better if it is slightly crispier..

Wakame Salad

I didn't notice that Sandra order the Wakame Salad till it arrived..
Wakame Salad is made up of Seaweeds and sprinkled with sesame seeds..

Tempura Moriawase

For those who loves tempura..the Tempura Moriawase will be the right dish to comes with Two Prawn Tempuras, Pumpkin Tempuras, and Brinjal tempura..

Unagi Kabayaki

I believe this is one of the popular dishes which will be ordered by many customers..
Unagi Kabayaki is made up of Grilled Eel with sweet sauce..
One of the dish which is worth ordering..

Yakinasu No Nikumiso Kake

Phui Leng said she felt like having brinjals after watching a cooking programme on tv at Sandra's place before going to Muanakata...So she ordered the Grilled Brinjals whcih is topped off with minced meat and soya bean paste..

Enoki No Gyuniku Maki

It was my first time having Enoki with normally it was wrapped up with bacon strips..
However, this dish above..The Enoki is wrapped up in Grilled sliced Beef rolls and accompanied with sweet sauce..
Simply delicious..!! 

Grilled Cod Fish

We ordered the grilled Cod Fish around 4-5 Sandra said she loves the Cod Fish..I agreed with the fish tasted fresh..and it smells so good..
Thumbs up..!!


Edamame are actually steamed green peas..which are sprinkled with sea salts before serving..
Perfect for snacking..!!

Nigiri Sushi

Nigiri Sushi is made up of Vinegared Rice ball topped off with Fresh Sliced of Salmon..
This one will be more filling compared to the Salmon Sahimi as it is accompanied with rice..
