Went to ki for our girls night dinner I mention here and it was my friend's "tone down" bachelorette party (no crazy partying or clubbing for her). Let's just say it's not my choice and I would definitely not have chosen this particular Japanese restaurant (>_<)
a little gift from the bride-to-be
a pink duckie that we all sign and wrote on (^v^)
Melon Hanabi w/ muddled jalapeno
Toro Tower topped w/crispy shallots + garlic ponzu dressing
The shallots and garlic flavor was way too strong and was way too prominent. Such a nice piece of toro sashimi, I'll like to have it's own flavor be the star... just letting the fatty goodness melt in your mouth is the best way to go. Toro are so fatty hence oily on it's own, so I don't understand why more oil is needed in the dressing. But still toro is toro, it can't be bad (^_^)
3 types of rolls to share
The presentation of the rolls was horrible here, I would have prefer if it was on separate plate and presented better, even something simple like the one here would be perfect.
Ki Spider Roll~ soft shell crab, mango, perilla leaves, chivesIt was average, I would have expected more from a higher end Japanese Restaurant like Ki. The soft shell crab wasn't very crispy but I do like the sweet mango which complimented the crab very well.
Didn't try this one...
Kiwi Tuna Rolls
~ yellowfin tuna, mango, cucumber, spicy tomato salsa, topped with Kyoto miso
It was a rather good combination of the two but again I expected the presentation and all over flavor to be better for $12-15/6pcs roll.
Saikyo-marinated + Black Cod w/ rapini, salmon roe + orange drizzle
This was my main, I choose the cod to be safe since most Japanese places get this right.... the cod was cook just right but the salmon roe on top was just a competition to the cod's flavor and the orange drizzle doesn't go with the roe at all. The big Ikura/Salmon Roe fan that I am, I am complaining of the existence of it on this dish =P
Half rack of smoked Baby Back Pork Ribs w/ ki maple bbq sauce
Took a bite from my friend's and it was way too dry and all flavor came from the sauce on the ribs but the meat itself was pretty bland
I just took picture of the following mains, so I can't comment on weather it's good or not.
grilled Canadian AAA Tenderloin served with a garlic ponzu sauce
~ heard her said that it was very tough
grilled Short Ribs marinated with asian pear-soya and sesame seeds
pan-seared Fresh Halibut with lemon confit + wasabi cream sauce
Will not go back !!!
Could definitely get better quality Japanese food at a much better price.
Way overpriced for what the are serving, both food quality and presentation wise
Our server went missing a lot of time and it took him more than 30mins to get out bills
