Shun Subang Jaya prides itself on its sets, and special lunch offers.
We read about this place on Masak-masak’s site, a while back .. but did not get a chance to swing by till now. Where else can you get a Wagyu set lunch for RM43.00? It really blows the mind when you see the quality of the Wagyu served here.
At dinner time, their specialty is the Yakitori. We were here for lunch, so no Yakitori for us, this time.
Shun also prides itself on the authenticity of its traditional Japanese cuisine and the freshness of its Sashimi.
They ran out of Tuna Belly. This is the first thing I asked for, and the first thing they replied “out of stock!” to 🙁
Anyway, the next best thing they could offer was the Sea Urchin and this small plate set us back by RM58. Rich, smooth and sweet.. this is Japan’s answer to the French Foie Gras. As long as you just let the dollop melt in your mouth and not count the calories, you will be a happy camper.
Most succulent salmon in this part of town, I dare say.
The Promotional Sanma.
Fresh as hell and with enough natural fat and oil to give this fish some kick.
For the avid drinker, there is always the lightly seasoned mushrooms to grill.
Slow and steady, this ‘cook it yourself’ dish makes excellent conversation tidbit as you nibble, chew, grill, throw back some sake and chat with your companions over a long, drawn out, meal..
This is a real time waster, to be savoured and enjoyed.. and prolonged!
Since we have heard about the Wagyu set ,we wanted to try out the other types of Wagyu beef on offer.
The Kobe Beef! .. It doesn’t get better than this. RM120 for this steak of Kobe – out of this world. The fat to lean ratio really had my eating companions knickers in a knot.. you could see the rapturous look on their faces .. bittersweet agony, that the experience might soon pass, but OH! the joy in living the moment.. all rolled into one emotion/sensation – Kobe!
Then the other variation of the Wagyu on cold soba.
OMG! This was priced at RM65, (as it was Wagyu and not Kobe) but man, if you can take my humble opinion into consideration, then I would tell you that THIS even out performed the Kobe Beef steak.
I think the fact that this was just lightly seared Wagyu beef (red, raw centre) and that the dressing and the intrinsic taste of the soba just brought out the meat juices and flavours to perfection, made it just that much better than the Kobe beef.
So much more ‘interesting’ in taste as well as sensation, as a dish!
My favourite of the day.
White tuna .. this was a fusion dish. The white sheets of tuna was wrapped round a cheese like center and baked.
A clever, creative dish (check out the name), with flavours enhanced by the seaweed.
Finally clam soup.
No complaints here. Piping hot and sweet, this really hit the spot and wrapped up the entire lunch experience in a nice, pretty bow.
