My Very First Valentine's Dinner

Hey guys, as this is my FIRST BLOGPOST so I'd like to kickstart it with something lovely, My Valentine's Dinner. Be frank, this was my very first time celebrating Valentine's Day. Just so you know, Valentine's Day fell on a weekday and I was having audit peak that time (Yes, I'm an auditor!) Due to my tight schedule, I wouldn't be able to make it on that day itself.

So HE kinda arranged everything, in advance, and it surprised me. Indeed, he's been very understanding and supportive on my goals. As I'm a big fan of Japanese food, he had planned and brought me to a Japanese Fine Dining Restaurant - ISHIN, which located in Old Klang Road, Kuala Lumpur. (I'll share the address and menu link of Ishin at the end of this post.)





The environment was warmly cozy and not to forget that the service in Ishin was pretty satisfying. Customer service of a restaurant actually plays a big part of the business, while their friendly staff would give some recommendation on the best sellers, and assisted us in finding parking as well.





At first, we had the appetizer - Deep Fried Shrimp Head, even though it came with mayo sauce, which was to cover the grease taste of the deep fried noms. However, the mayo sauce was slightly strong that it did not balance up with the appetizer. But in the mean time, I was impressed with the use of their ingredients, as Ishin also serves Tempura Shrimp, that equals to one shrimp could be turned into 2 different dishes. This has saved them from wasting food and to making more profits! (Such a smart idea!)



For main course, we have ordered Salmon Shioyaki Fish Head (salt grilled) and Unagi Zen set. The portion of the Unagi set was pretty big and filling, as it came with the eel and tempura. To be honest, the Unagi in Ishin was by far the best I've ever had, it was so mouth-watering. Even now, I could still recall the taste of it (This is the bomb!) Yet, the Salmon Head was a little disappointing as compared to the Unagi, it was over grilled and was not juicy. So yeah, I would suggest you all to go with the Unagi Set, definitely worth the price.





HE knows me so well that I really love Raw Salmon, so he ordered one. Besides that, we also ordered Grilled Oysters with Cheese & ChawanMushi (It's another must try). Grilled oysters with cheese came with some onions, but if you're not a fan of onions, you may inform the waiter that you do not want onions in your dish. It was good, but the portion was too big because there was only 2 of us and we had already ordered a lot. It would be good as a sharing platter with 3 pax and above.





Before I tried the Chawanmushi, I thought it would just taste like the other Chawanmushi, so I didn't bother to try. When HE handed one to me, I was like Uhm..... because I was too busy eating other food haha. I still tried, and it immediately got me like, Omg this is so gooooood! How could I not try this just now? As you can see, unlike the ordinary Chawanmushi, it served with Caviar, Fish Roe and Uni.



Just when I thought it's gonna end like this, he surprised me by pulling out a bouquet of flowers from his boot. Thank you, for pampering me!xx

In fact, not only did he pamper me on Valentine's Day, even on an ordinary day, he would just randomly give me some surprises and I'm beyond blessed!
