To succeed in KL’s ultra-competitive Japanese fine dining scene, one must really be cut out for the task, and thankfully for Sushi Hara, executive chef Harada Junji has managed to find his niche. Not your run-of-the mill omakase operation, Sushi Hara offers unmistakably Japanese fare featuring non-traditional ingredients, from silky chawanmushi with foie gras to eggplant jelly reminiscent of liquid smoke.
Little details need to be worked out, such as the sequencing of the courses (to avoid long bouts of waiting) and the front of house team’s descriptions of the dishes (they struggled to share the chef’s enthusiasm), but this chic and comfortable Japanese restaurant has its strengths. A 10-course expedition of flavour, the Hara Omakase presents premium ingredients in their best light, and the main highlight—seven pieces of sushi—is unique in that each piece is brushed with different amounts of soy sauce or wasabi.
As with all omakase restaurants, the best seats in the house are right in front of the chef.
