Hanare 8th Anniversary Omakase Lunch, Intermark Mall

Eight years ago, the promise of free-flow Australian Wagyu teppanyaki and premium sashimi lured us to Hanare's doors. Fast forward to 2018, Hanare is still one of our favorite Japanese restaurants and a big drawing force for us to visit Intermark Mall, thanks to its high-quality Japanese cuisine which impresses time and time again.



Hanare also boasts several highly-skilled chefs such as Chef Akira Yonomoto with over 45 years of experience in sushi making as well as four other local chefs with over 30 years of experience in Japanese cuisine. Furthermore, quality fresh produce specially hand picked by their staff in Tsukiji Market in Tokyo are air-flown in twice a week.



To commemorate their eighth anniversary, we had the honour of partaking in a celebratory 8-course omakase lunch in the restaurant.


Appetizer - Shironaigai (Japanese ivory shell), Wasabi ha zuke (pickled wasabi leaf) and Mozuku (Vinegar algae seaweed)




My favorite course was the sashimi platter, which came with luscious cuts of chutoro (tuna belly), uni (sea urchin), hirame (flounder), buri (yellowtail) and ika (squid).




Nimono - Toriniku Kyabetsu Roll (simmered minced chicken stuffed in cabbage leaves)



Yakimono - Wagyu Tataki Ponzu. Another beautiful dish; thinly sliced Australian Wagyu beef fillet is lightly seared and served with a ponzu sauce. 




Teppanyaki - Tiger prawn teppanyaki style, topped with special sauce. 



Coming in a close second for me was the nigiri sushi platter. The otoro (fatty tuna belly) was simply out of this world.. so tender and fatty.  There was also hirame (flounder), kanpachi (amberjack), hotate (scallop) and ikura (salmon roe). Served with Nameko akadashi soup (tiny sticky mushroom in red miso bean paste soup).






Dessert - sweet Japanese musk melon.




Congratulations Hanare on your 8th anniversary, and here's to many more glorious years! Thank you for having us as part of your celebration!

Price for omakase starts from RM450++. Hanare also offer Sushi KaisekiTeppanyaki, Ishiyaki (lava stone hot plate) and weekend buffet.
