*** Update December 2020 : The restaurant is closed for renovation now and will be opened in March 2021 ***
Guysss!!! If you miss Japan and feels like eating Japanese BBQ, there's a place to satisfy your cravings in Kota Damansara.
Wagyu Kokoro Halal Yakiniku is Muslim-owned and Halal-certified so Muslim customers need not worry.
The restaurant serves premium quality Japanese wagyu beef grade A4 to A5. No idea which one to choose? The Japanese beef grading system gives wagyu beef a grade from 1 to 5, with 1 being the lowest and 5, the highest. This is all based on factors like its fat color, meat color, ribeye shape, size of ribeye area, and its marbling.
A5 is highly recommended but of course it comes with a steep price. But once in a while, try it!
What I had.
Single Wagyu Set
The staff helped me with the first few cuts, showing how to grill the perfect wagyu steak.
Even though the sets come with A4 beef, it's still sooo good!! Succulent and yummy!
But next visit, I'll definitely go with their A5. I've tasted A5 in Japan and it was the best meal I've ever had in the country.
Wagyu Kokoro Spicy Ramen
The chicken yakitori and ramen (comes with the Single Wagyu Set) was delish as well.
If you're planning to come for dinner, it's best to reserve seats in advance as the two-floor restaurant can be full.
