Kaiju Company @ APW Bangsar

Enter the Dragon: Kaiju Company rampages into APW Bangsar this month, powered by a hybrid of mainly Japanese & Thai gastronomic inspirations, unleashed under the spectacle of a 30-metre origami dragon that's lit up like a lantern after sundown.

The playful selection of wild-card creations, ranging from rice & salad bowls to pasta platters, strives to show reverence for fresh, fun & feisty flavours: Tender tuna tataki topped with a sauce of green chillies & yuzu makes for the ideal introduction, followed by tangy-spicy pasta with prawns, minced lamb & cheese sprinklings in a lime-based sauce, intended to evoke the soulfulness of Bangkok's street food (RM28), & a seared salmon salad tossed with avocados in chilli-sesame dressing (RM22).

If you need fuss-free warm fare, the Hawaiian Kaiju Rice should hit the spot for sheer comfort, comprising a chicken patty with runny fried egg & mushrooms in Japanese curry (RM26), coupled with moist Okinawan-influenced bittergourd omelette with cubed duck (RM18). An amuse bouche of pickled radish with wasabi-smeared octopus might set the stage for a visit here, with sake cocktails, laced with lemongrass, asam boi, Ribena or lemonade with black pepper (RM20 each), to lubricate the meal.

  1. Dragon? Origami? Wowwwww!!!! That sure is impressive. Reminds me that Chinese New Year is not too far away, soon after Christmas.

    Thai-Japanese fusion? Interesting! We do have prawn sashimi or soft shell crab sashimi at the Thai fusion place that I frequent here, though I can't say I'm all into anything raw. Would love to try what they have here.
