Okonomi @ Publika, Solaris Dutamas

7:30 AM

Recently I was invited to a food review at Publika. The restaurant name is Okonomi. It is a new Japanese restaurant located at Publika. To be honest, this is my first Japanese food review. :p

The name ‘Okonomi’ comes from the same Japanese word meaning ‘as you like it’. At Okonomi, they encourage you to indulge in your creativity to find a sushi roll that’s just right for you using their unique ingredients such as fresh fruits, katsu chicken, soy wraps and many more. Okonomi is the first Japanese restaurant that can customize your own sushi in Malaysia. Now you can customize your own sushi.

But don’t worry if you can’t decide, opt to choose from their house roll instead, created to please the sushi aficionado, first time sushi eater and everyone in between. 

Okonomi prepare all their cuisine using urban Japanese cooking methods and techniques, bringing out the natural essence of the freshest, wildest, most seasonal flavors. Besides that, Okonomi’s menu also offers an array of other mouthwatering dishes and luscious dessert that are sure to satisfy any appetite.

Chef Alex Lau preparing dishes for us.

Matcha Latte with soft serve ice-cream- Rm12.90

Azuki Float- Rm12.90

Avocado Prawn Salad- Rm18.90
Let’s begin our meal with a refreshing salad! A combination of succulent prawn, sliced avocado, Tobiko and citrus salad dressing. Falling in love with their citrus salad dressing. *Love*

Customize Sushi Maki Roll by Chef Alex Lau
It is half white rice and half brown rice with the fillings of pickled cucumber, jelly fish, smoked duck and topping of Ebiko. 

There 3 steps to customize your sushi roll. First, choose your base. Second, choose your favorite filling based on the size you choose. You can upgrade to premium filling with only Rm5+ each. And third, choose your sauces and toppings. Their sauces and dressing are all handmade. 

Crunchy Tempura Roll- Rm20.90
Combination of Urumaki, seaweed wrap, white rice, tempura tiger prawn, mixed mushroom, asparagus, cheddar mayo, grated parmesan and tempura flakes.

Soft Shell Crab Pasta- Rm16.90
Crispy soft shell crab, fresh green and Ebiko with rich sesame dressing. 

Crab Korokke- Rm9.90
Gently breaded crabmeat deep fried with poached butter and cream sauce. It is mushy enough and I like the savoury crab meat. It is so yummy! 

Chicken Karaage- Rm9.90
Caramelized Kimchi flavored chicken tenders, battered with cereal. It is crunchy enough. 

Matcha Lover Parfait- Rm18.90
It’s dessert time!!! It is a twist of their azuki shiramata parfait for the matcha lovers with addition of soft serve matcha ice-cream and a matcha chocolate bamboo stick. It layered with some corn flakes, red bean paste, rice mocha, jelly, matcha syrup and whipped cream. Aren’t this dessert looks pretty?

Matcha Lava Cake- Rm16.90
This is my favorite! Strongly recommended! This matcha white chocolate cake filled with delicious matcha chocolate molten lava served with vanilla ice-cream, matcha chocolate bamboo sticks and fresh strawberry drizzled with powdered sugar. No doubt, this cake is sweet but it taste really good. When I was eating this lava cake, the matcha is so rich in the cake and I was like in heaven. I will definitely go back again for this Matcha Lava Cake. 

Overall, their foods are delicious. If you love Japanese foods or you like sushi roll, you can go to Okonomi to customize your own sushi and give your sushi a name maybe? Environment is nice, very clean and cozy.
