Yaataa! another cool and awesome Japanese restaurant is here in Kuala Lumpur. It’s Aragan Yokocho in Quill City Mall, Kuala Lumpur. When i get inside this restaurant, it’s feel really weird because of its open space concept. I feel like i’m in old Japanese alley. Well true to its name Aragan Yokocho which literally means Aragan Alleyway really bring its concept into the restaurant. Lets check it out! The Entrance is nice and the stuff are friendly even though there are a bit shy when i snap this photo.

The main reason to be here is the FOOD!
So we already see the interior and the ambiance that Aragan Yokocho offer to us. Now let talk about the most important things, which is the food! Okay basically Aragan Yokocho will bring you all the specialty produce of specific region in Japan. And they also flown the fresh seafood directly from Japan. And whats more exciting is they will serve 200 type of dishes ranging from snack to dessert. They also will bring specialty chef from Japan and will train the local chef the true way of Japanese Food. Now let see what do i have this time at Aragan Yokocho.
Its no fuss to order your food here, just choose anything you like here on the ipad. Easy peasy!
Over here from the top we have Chicken donburi, Edamame and Okonomiyaki. I love how the Edamame slightly salted and grill so nice. The Okonomiyaki are bomb! and the Donburi are good too.
Haru Set is price at RM36.00 promotion price. This menu is very nice and not spicy. The fried chicken is really crunchy and juicy, i love it. The rice bowl its light and refreshing. And the sweet meringue is serve chill so good!
Next we have this Fuyu Set at RM36 while in promotion. They have a chicken sukiyaki really nice broth.
Natsu Set at RM36(promo) is a good starter too if you like tempura, you can choose this one 🙂
Now is dessert time! In Aragan Yokocho, they have quite a selection of dessert. We had a combination of Yam and Matcha ice cream and also some come with sweet blackbean mochi, you should try this one!
Aragan Yokocho is a fun alley to be at!
Aragan Yokocho to me is a solid Japanese restaurant with a very different approach to its interior and concept unlike the one that we always see in Kuala Lumpur or Malaysia. We had fun experiencing the space and the cultural burst in this one not so “tiny” restaurant. The staff are friendly and willing to help and generous with smile. The owner are also very humble. I definitely will be back here when they are on full gear probably sometime in April. A approved this restaurant as Awesome. Well from the photos above you can see how much fun we had here. Go check it out and enjoy the Authentic Japanese Food Experience at Aragan Yokocho! Arigatou !
