Izakaya Kushi Raku is not your typical Japanese Restaurants that serves only sushi and Dons. Instead, they serve Yakitori Kushiyaki which is Japanese grilled skewers. In Japan, Izakaya is a place that people drink and chill after work and the interior design of Izakaya Kushi Raku perfectly brings that authentic Izakaya experience to live for Malaysians. The restaurant is furnished with customized wooden tables and chairs placed at one side and an open bar on the other side. The Japanese paintings, red lanterns and decorations using sake bottles enhanced the Izakaya vibe and gave the space a very chill and relaxing atmosphere.
Looking at the menu, other than grilled skewers, they also serve appetizer such as baby octopus, salads and others. The main of the menu would definitely be the grilled skewers that vary from a broad selection of chicken, beef, seafood and pork. From meatballs to livers, you name it and they have it. However, Izakaya Kushi Raku also includes Dons and noodles like Udon and Soba for those who are looking for a heavier meal.
What you can’t miss out is their Onigiri which is wrapped with different fillings and brought to grill. The crunchiness from the grilling would bring Onigiri to a whole new level. However, all of this is just to complement the all-rising star of the menu which is the Sake. It wouldn’t be Izakaya if it doesn’t involve some drinking and if Sake is not your thing you can always go for other alcoholic drinks like beer or even whiskey.
In a nutshell, you would definitely want to include Izakaya Kushi Raku as one of the places to hang out and chill after work on a Friday evening or even any other weekdays will do.
