Not quite an izakaya yet not just a purveyor of fresh fish, Uokatsu in Plaza Damas offers a relatively frills-free experience replete with air-flown Japanese seafood. Whether it’s the delicious grilled squid with its own guts as a dipping sauce or off-cuts like braised tuna tail, there’s always something left-field to catch the eye. On our visit, we had the Salmon Ikura Don (RM35), fresh and vibrant with the salmon roe popping on the tongue. Not to be outdone, the Maguro Don (RM30) came with ruby red slices of tuna, marinated so as to draw out the depth of their oceanic flavour and garnished with spring onions for that vegetale bite. We hear great things about their Tai Meshi Don (seabream, RM30) and their Mentai Rice (RM18) so we’re due for a return trip very soon.
