Zipangu @ Shangri-La Hotel, KL

“Zipangu’s layout reflects modern Tokyo contrasted with ancient Kyoto’s grace. This modern Japanese restaurant is honoured with the Best Oriental Restaurant Award in the Malaysia Tourism Awards 2004.”

We were even tempted to endeavour this fine Japanese cuisine.
Polished wooden floor stretched out superiorly along with adornments of some customary Jap details and the faint lightings provided the contemporary and swanky ambiance.
We were seated in a glass surrounded room, prettified by walls arranged with a wide variety of wines.
Well-mannered staffs, good services and food was served at an unhurried pace. Having good times enjoying the food slowly, chitchatting after each dish, good for digestion 🙂
We’re relaxed.

Teppanyaki Beef Course (RM140)
2 kind of appetizers, steamed egg custard, clear soup, foie gras with winter melon, salad, tenderloin teppanyaki, rice, Japanese pickles, miso soup and ice cream.

Appetizer, inviting.

Clear soup. Not so clear definitely. Flavoursome broth weighed down with ingredients!

Chawanmushi. Soft. Silky. Smooth. with crab meats.


Foie gras (goose liver) with winter melon. Unbeatable. Unforgettable.

Succulent. Tender. Tenderloin.

Vanilla Ice Cream

Zipangu Course (RM160)
2 kind of appetizers, steamed egg custard, clear soup, foie gras with winter melon, salad, salmon teppanyaki, assorted tempura, rice, Japanese pickles, miso soup and ice cream.
The above side dishes and appetizers were the same in this course, with an addition of the tempura, and a different meat serving.

Tempura. Piping hot. Fresh. Delicate.

Salmon teppanyaki. Etched in my mind.

Matcha Ice Cream with Red Bean. Not the best one though.

Saba (RM40)
Grilled Mackerel with salt.
This one is forgettable. Unlikable.

  6. Em.. that really costs a bomb (or 3 bombs?)

  7. haha, now i know how zipangu looks like! thanks for the pics! 🙂

    the foie gras sounds and looks good! once in awhile, indulging in a little luxury is fantastic! yummy!

  8. I heard so much about the foie gras with wintermelon. Looks so so good. But with foie gras, can’t go wrong hor?

  9. WOW…exquisite spread of food!!! I am amazed by the beautifully capture photos…..
    Foie gras is not my thing…but the salmon is!!:D

    Oh btw, your new pic with the ice cream on the right looks nice;)

  10. wow, really a sumptuous dinner~~

  11. I miss the zipangu buffet. I love their tamago and unagi. With the shangri la card, I get 50% off when I dine with my fiance. Really worth it. And their spider maki is sooooo good!!! And unlimited strawberries. Haha.. I’m naming everything now. But you are right, their green tea ice cream is nothing to shout about. In fact their strawberry ice cream is really good with real strawberries in it.

    Meanwhile, I’ve to feed on UK’s food ^^

  13. Even though the price is a bit expensive, I think it’s worth it. Especially the Foie Grad, slurp, slurp.

  14. Just wanted those who like foie gras to know that it involves force-feeding ducks/geese more food than they would normally eat. It’s controversial due to the force feeding procedure, and the possible health consequences of an enlarged liver. A number of countries and other jurisdictions have laws against force feeding or the sale of foie gras due to how it is traditionally produced.

    The forced feeding results in livers swollen to many times their normal size, impaired liver function, expansion of the abdomen making it difficult for birds to breathe, death if the force feeding is continued, and scarring of the esophagus. The insertion and removal of the feeding tube can also scratch the throat and the esophagus, causing irritations and wounds and thus exposing the animal to risk of mortal infections.

    At just a few months old, ducks are confined inside dark sheds and force-fed enormous amounts of food several times a day. A farm worker thrusts a metal pipe down each duck’s throat so that food can be forced directly into their gullets. In just a matter of weeks, the ducks become grossly overweight and their livers expand up to 10 times their normal size.

    We should enjoy the pleasure of eating, but in doing so, we shouldn’t cause such pain and suffering to other living beings by our diets and choices. Let’s try to eat more humanely.
