Japanese Sunday nights

Start at the basement food court of Pavilion, Kuala Lumpur's mall of malls in Bukit Bintang. Seated on a stool centered around cooks in hakata, watch while your rice meals are cooked before your eyes. The diners don't look Malay, only luck will get you a seat, the price is about the same as any regular meal, but the live performance is an entertaining bonus. The vegetable side dish is good; the meat could use a bit more flavour. A good dinner nonetheless.

On the top floor of the mall is Tokyo Street, rows of Japanese style stores presented as the real thing—light wood interiors, Japanese merchandise, and of course, my favourite Daiso, where everything is RM5 (~P70 at P14=RM1). Kawaii items, mochi and other Japanese staples can be found here.

A few steps away from Pavilion is Uniqlo's flagship store at Fahrenheit 88, possibly the main reason to visit the mall.


If it's late and you're craving for cheap Japanese food, come over to the sushi section at Cold Storage, Suria KLCC, where the day's preparations are discounted at RM2 off. This set of rolls, a meal on its own, comes to little over RM3.



  1. There's also Cold Storage in Berjaya Times Square near Bukit Bintang. It closes at 10pm ba? :)
