Lunch @ Kissaten Cafe & Restaurant, IOI Boulevard, Puchong

"You come to a Japanese restaurant and order a burger??"

We had to run some errands in Puchong, and since I had no idea what or where to eat in Puchong, I just opened google map and looked for the nearest mall in Puchong. We ended up at IOI Boulevard and after wandering around the mall for a bit, we decided to eat at Kissaten Cafe & Restaurant. Kissaten, in Japanese means coffee shop and serves Japanese-fusion food such as salad, pasta, Japanese noodles, pizza, sashimi and much more. As I flicked through the menu, the teriyaki pork burger caught my eye since the photo was very enticing. Hubby was surprised at my choice seeing this was a Japanese cafe - burgers are usually associated with Western food, right?

The restaurant was quite spacious and service was very good. The place was packed with the lunch crowd but we didnt have to wait long for our food to arrive.


Nice and spacious


The teriyaki pork burger (RM10.90) turned out to be an excellent choice. It was a really tall burger, so I struggled slightly to put the whole thing in my mouth without making a mess. When I placed the order, the waiter actually asked how many portions I wanted to cut the burger into and this being my first time, I said half. Maybe the better answer would be into quarters since it would be easier for me to handle this sloppy burger.

That aside, I loved the juicy patty... the teriyaki sauce is a great accompaniment to this burger. The pork patty was sandwiched between an egg, lettuce and tomatoes. The egg yolk was only a little runny, which was good or else I would have made a bigger mess than I did. Hubby certainly had a good laugh at my expense (messy face) and we joked that someone here on a date should not order the teriyaki burger or else they might scare their date away. LoL!

A great burger



A mess I don't mind getting into


I was feeling ravenous so I also ordered a side portion of Pepper Teriyaki Wings (RM6.90) which fell a little short of expectations. This time, the teriyaki sauce didn't really go too well with the wings this combination tasted a little too sweet for my liking.


Hubby had the Moonlight Udon Set (RM19.80) which came with a moonlight udon, yaki gyoza and green tea. The udon and broth was decent, but he didn't really like the look nor the taste of the fine tempura batter pieces which accompanied this dish. Fortunately, the yaki gyoza was very good; flavoursome and moist meat filling with a lovely crisp exterior.

Verdict: The teriyaki pork burger was satisfyingly good. I am eyeing their mentaiko pasta for next time.

  2. my favorite thing about kissaten: it feels like more than 50 percent of the items on the menu contains EGG YOLK (at least in the puchong branch. the jaya one branch seems to be more pizzas and pastas)! :D
