Sunday Brunch at Kampachi @ Troika, Kuala Lumpur

Ever since Kampachi at Troika opened late last year, I had wanted to check out their Sunday brunch. (Read about my earlier dinner review here). They do serve the usual set meals as well as the more extravagant omakase meals but the Sunday brunch is something to look forward to if you are an ardent fan of Japanese cuisine.

Their Sunday Brunch is not like the regular buffets where the dishes are all pre-cooked and laid out on the serving counters.

The Kampachi Brunch at The Troika offers a sumptuous semi-buffet, with a selection of special dishes featuring premium cuts of sashimi and beef, and succulent lobsters and king crabs. Dishes are ordered from the special menu set for that Sunday (it changes every week). Premium items like chutoro, amber jack and sea bream sashimi are limited to 1 piece each per person. Unlimited regular sashimis are available on the ice counter together with a good variety of cold appetizers and salads.

Each diner can select one hot dish from the “main kitchen” on the menu and the choices include US lobster teppanyaki style, grilled Japanese Wagyu roll, grilled Hokkaido King Crab, grilled Tiger Prawn with teriyaki sauce and Deep-fried Hokkaido Snow Crab Leg. The Hokkaido King Crab was disappointing though – it was dry and bland.

Grilled Cod

Unlimited orders can be made for other special items on the menu covering tempura, teppanyaki meats, grilled fishes like cod, mackerel, salmon & shishamo, sukiyaki and must-have’s like chawan mushi, unagi and scallops. They even have a very crispy and delicious fried Chicken Wings with Black Pepper!

The teppanyaki beef was marvelously tender and juicy, much better than the grilled Wagyu roll offered on the “main kitchen” selection. The chawan mushi was memorable for its generous scoop of ikura (salmon roe) topping… I simply adored the flavourful popping in my mouth! The Pan-fried Hokkaido Scallops with Garlic Butter were rich in flavours and it’s a good thing to have a bunch of crunchy pea sprouts by the side to diffuse the richness a bit.

The dessert is served in their Kampachi Platter style: a huge plate of assorted seasonal fresh fruits and green tea and black sesame ice cream flanked by mocha-like green tea jelly.

    I haven’t had the Sun Brunch for years now. Wonder if I can stomach all the food available…being selective is the key I guess. Would u return for it again? Much better than the buffet concept?

      Yes, it’s more exclusive than the buffet style and whatever you order from the menu come out freshly prepared from the kitchen. They change their menu every week so yeah, I can certainly go back there again :-)

    I think I better come here before my Sam turns 5, because paying for 85++ for a kid is so ridiculous!
