Authentic Japanese Cuisine at Genji Japanese Restaurant, Hilton Petaling Jaya Hotel

Call me a Japanese food sucker. From sashimi to tempura, soba to bento, you named it I love it! I have been travelling to Japan for a few times, and I am addicted to authentic Japanese cuisine. Back in Malaysia, I treasure every authentic Japanese restaurant because there are not many good ones here.  But I can tell you that one of it is the Genji Japanese Restaurant at Hilton Petaling Jaya Hotel. 
Thanks to Sidney, I had a fantastic dinner at Genji Japanese Restaurant, Hilton Petaling Jaya Hotel 2 weeks ago. It was a Friday evening where many was enjoying their happy hour in the bar and we enjoying our authentic Japanese cuisine in the newly revitalized Genji Japanese Restaurant.
I like the newly revamped Genji Japanese Restaurant for its serene and bright ambience, very relaxing dining there. The new menu has everything Japanese cuisine should have; let’s look at some of them below ok.
Appetizer – Shirao Wasabi + Kaki Tempura + Unagi Tama 
The appetizer trio includes wasabi-marinated white baits, deep-fried oyster and deep-fried eel in Japanese omelet. As a seafood lover, I like the appetizer a lot. The chef has creatively prepared the appetizer in different tasting sensation.

Salad – Seafood Salad 
The seafood salad has lots of vegetables with fresh seafood and sashimi, served with goma dressing. I especially love their goma sauce which is very delicious and taste uniquely Japanese. The chef made all the sauces in house hence you can’t find the same authentic taste elsewhere. 
Sashimi – Premium Sashimi Moriawase Set 
We all Wow when the assorted sashimi boat was served. The assorted sashimi was well cut into thick slices. Dipped in wasami and soy sauce, it was simply the most original and yummilicious Japanese dish that I enjoyed that night. The best part is all Genji’s Sashimi was very fresh, as I know they import them from Japan and Norway (Salmon) very frequent. 

Soup – Dobin Mushi 
It was my first time trying the dobin mushi soup which is served in a teapot and teacup. I tried it in some Chinese restaurant before but not Japanese restaurant. To enjoy Dobin Mushi soup to max, it’s advised to squeeze the half pc of lime juice into the soup before serving. Surprisingly it is not sour at all but taste fresh and clear. 
Sushi – Jumbo Ebi Ura Maki 
Maki is loved by many including me. Genji’s signature Jumbo Ebi Ura Maki is a must-have when you visit here as the portion is big with a lot of ingredients such as fish roe, salad and cucumber.

Trio Combo – Sashimi of Salmon, tuna and sea beam 
Genji’s trio combo is a must-have when you are here because you could enjoy delectable raw Sashimi of Salmon, tuna and sea beam plus lightly grilled cod on a bed of garlic fried rice, sashimi wrapped in seaweed and served on a bed of potato salad in just one dish.

Rice – Scallop fried rice 
A premium fried rice where you could aspect a chunks of scallops along with each bite of the fried rice.

Dessert - Genji Combo 
In the Genji Combo you could find fresh fruits, matcha ice cream cake and hot red bean soup with glutinous rice ball. The dessert taste not too sweet and I especially love the matcha ice cream cake.
