If you’re looking for hearty tasty food executed with extra flair, new kid on the block Shiso Dining might tickle your fancy. Housing 5 different concepts under 1 roof, the mix of styles blend harmoniously together rather than fight for attention.

Although it shares the same DNA as the award-winning fine dining establishment Cilantro helmed by Chef Takashi Kimura. Shiso Dining has an approachable vibe that’s great for a casual lunch or dinner.

Ajitama Truffle (RM8): Has the perfect mousse-like texture and a good kick of truffle to fancy things up a little.  

Smoked Salmon a la minute (RM25): With extra theatrics as it’s smoked before your eyes, this dish is visually appealing. Think bright colours arranged neatly on the plate before you and it tastes both fresh and tangy, thanks to the addition of capers and crème fraîche.

Chicken Paitan (RM28): This chicken soup was rendered down so well, it’s comforting, packed with umami and so tasty, Sarah dapaoed two extra portions to take home. The chicken balls contain soft chicken bone, which give it an extra crunch.

8 types vegetable sandwich (RM32): Another dish packed with lovely colours, VX enjoyed how the pea pods added extra crispness and crunch to the medley of vegetables which included beetroot, cucumber, avacado and capsicum.

Curry Udon (RM35): VX’s favourite, but the portion is large, we recommend that you share it so that you can order other dishes to enjoy. The udon is springy and chewy, the curry is also thick and has a good spice to it, without being too much heat. This is less sweet than your typical Japanese curry and comes with tender chicken inside too.

Chicken Katsu Don (RM25): Crispy chicken topped with Japanese pepper powder, we thought it went very well with the egg mixture and the fluffy rice. 

As mentioned, Shiso Dining houses 5 different concepts, and if you’re looking for something a little more highbrow, head over to La Terrasse, which has the same menu as Cilantro. For the best way to taste seasonal specials, there’s also a special 3-course set menu for RM225. You can add on an additional starter for RM50.

We got to try a Blanquette of Italian Veal with Duxelles, which is a slow braised veal brisket with Velouté served with homemade tagliolini and mushroom duxelles, which are mushrooms sautéed with onions, shallots, garlic, and parsley. The pasta was delicious paired with the strong savoury mushrooms and tender meat.  

The Lemon Moelleux with Mascarpone Ice Cream was easy to eat, light on the palate and not too sour, a dessert that many would enjoy.

We also had drinks from mixologist Mizukami Highball to wash everything down, including a draught sake, Grant’s Highball (consists of a generous amount of Grant’s Whisky & soda), and for the non-drinkers, we can recommend the Spiced Rum, which is made from oolong tea, maple syrup, palm sugar, cinnamon.

Once you’re done with your meal, you can head over to Vinifera to check out the wine selection or pick up goodies like truffle butter, caviar and chicken liver pate at Marché to bring home with you.
