My friends are probably hatching a plot to murder me as I type this, but I’m going to risk it and tell you guys anyway — Koh Grill & Sushi, a small Japanese eatery in Wisma Atria Food Republic, is an amazing place for good Japanese Food at very reasonable prices.
I was rather skeptical even though my friends raved about them all the time. Good Japanese food in a food court? I did not believe them, until I made the trip myself.
We started off with what I shall call the best-maki-in-my-life, or otherwise known as the Shiok Maki ($15) at Koh Grill & Sushi Bar. If you are going down after reading this post, please do yourself a favour and order the Shiok Maki. The melty cheese sauce was the perfect companion for the charcoal grilled eel wrapped with salmon maki. How could something so simple… taste so good? We had no idea, no idea at all.
The Gindara black cod fillet ($13) was lightly salted and charcoal-grilled. It had a very clean and fresh taste. We also ordered the Nasu Miso Yaki ($5). The Eggplant served with sweet miso paste dissolved in an instant after I put it into my mouth. For once, I actually like eggplant.
It wasn’t a lot of food, but we were actually pretty satisfied by this stage. Nonetheless, we decided to push our luck with the Pitan Maki ($15) anyway. The special house-sauce was a mystery, but we were guessing that it’s probably made of century egg. On top of the maki, there were tiny black century egg cubes mixed together with the generous serving of the crunchy tobiko.
We ended the meal with a scoop of black sesame ice cream. The three of us paid around $20 per person for the food, which was very reasonable for the quality of the Japanese food that we had.
Koh Grill & Sushi Bar is a gem. If you are having difficulty deciding what to eat in Orchard, drop by Wisma Atria Food Republic and check out Koh Grill & Sushi.
