This might be a rather old story. Chances is, you might have already try this buffet long before I blog this. Knowing the existence of this buffet for some time, it was only recently that it came to our mind to try it. Priced at RM59 per person, it's in the same league as Saisaki, Shogun and probably Umaiya but not without distinct differences from them. Unlike Shogun and Saisaki, Miraku serves rather pure Japanese buffet, saved for one or two exception dishes. That being said, you won't find 'Buddha jumps over the wall', sea cucumber with mushrooms or anything like that in Miraku.
The sashimi selection were good They were refilled quickly but were always in small quantity to ensure the freshness. Remember the big mess that we always see in Shogun? Rest assured that you are not going to see it here.
Now, I do not know how to judge a good sushi like an expert but I would say Miraku serves better ones compared to its competitors I mentioned. The shari (rice) holds together well when I picked them up with chopsticks and the nate (fish) on top were given generously, except for Dragon Maki Roll and Unagi Roll.
I love the broth of the steamed clam and the clams were big and fresh with a tiny little flaw - the sands in them.
Something worth mentioning here is the Ebi Tempura - fleshy and fresh. The other fried and grilled item weren't bad and CS were on cloud nine when he knew they serve Takoyaki too.
Udon and Soba for noodle lovers.
The salmon fried rice that was good enough to tempt us.
One of the dishes we least expected to find here was the kimchi.
I can't stress enough how much I love their desserts. The other food were good but the highlight of my day were the desserts; three types of ice cream (matcha, vanilla & black sesame), jellies and tofu with plenty of toppings to choose.
Other than the usual suspects for toppings, there were chocolate cake bits and blueberry sauce.
The Annin Tofu is sweet beancurb, not unlike taufoofa.
The sweet cheese tofu was my favourite for its melt-in-your-mouth texture and the faint taste of cheese complemented by the sweet blueberry sauce. It reminds me of blueberry cheese cake minus the pungent taste that usually comes together with cheese.
Black sesame ice cream.
Despite doing a buffet line, Miraku still aimed at serving food in a least crowded environment where the diners can walk around leisurely instead of jostling and shoving a hungry crowd.
If you're looking for a pure Japanese spread at an affordable price and good ambience, Miraku's Sunday buffet is probably your best bet in Klang Valley.
