The best tasting dish of the night. Light and sweet tomato sauce coats the beautiful handmade pasta perfectly.

A simple and light salad to start the meal, and probably one of the better dishes of the night. Love the honey mustard dressing, but again, the portion was a bit small for the price.

They ran out of tagliatelle on my visit so we had it with spaghetti instead. The handmade pastas here are really good – nicely al dente. The wild boar tomato sauce though, under-seasoned and a bit dry. Also, the meat portion was very little. Just a little bit more salt and more tang from tomato would have made the dish better.

Chrysanthemum Soft-serve | 🌼
I am a very “chrysanthemum” person, and I always have high expectation on chrysanthemum. Don’t ask me why, I just really love chrysanthemum. And this soft-serve never fail to surprise me!
Served wit goji berries and osmanthus jelly. Best combination!

You have the option of eating the soft serve in cup, waffle, or with brownies.

This soft-serve made me feel healthy | RM10 (cup)

Soft launch was yesterday and the official launch is on 1st of July, so we're getting in early alright.
.
Bread: quite crunchy crust, very soft innards. The typical Gardenia-bred Malaysian will love this. Snarkiness aside, it's not too bad actually. Soft but it doesn't become gluey, thankfully. And it came with an alright-ish puttanesca sauce.
.
Wild boar tagliatelle: I hate parsley-garnish on plate rims. The boar needs more seasoning and could do with a longer braise. Bland, not much flavour, and all that effort is just wasted, really. The pasta itself is alright. Good for Sri Petaling, at least. The sauce, though, is slightly watery and again, a tad bland. It's made in-house but it does need a bit more richness. At RM35 too, you're looking at something a good deal pricier and worse than, say, Basil Pasta House.
.
Seafood linguine was much better. Nice, al dente, linguine. Squiggly squid offset by alright prawns. A good plate of pasta.
.
And speaking of plates, the plates are so old fashioned here. And the food came out in a very strange order. We were halfway through our mains before the starter finally arrived. Huge kitchen though.
.
Gamberi croccanti alla catalana: interesting filo pastry on the prawn (lovely texture) but unfortunately it completely overwhelms the prawn. Can't taste much of anything inside. And the diced vegetable base just doesn't work. Looks awfully 'cheap', the celery overpowers everything, and a softer base would be a better textural contrast.
.
The rest of the menu does look promising (porchetta salad, fusilli with chicken-pork ragu and white wine, 200g grass-fed Angus rib-eye for MYR 70, calzones), though artificially pricey for the area. And the ingredients and execution don't quite justify it so far. Early days though. We're keen to follow its progress, given our office is so nearby. And if it doesn't work out, there's always Sourakuya a couple doors away. Now if only Sourakuya would drop their prices back to what they used to be!

Nasi lemak not great but the fried chicken is good.

People always say to not judge a book by its cover but y'all hypocrites. This brings me to the point that don't judge a food solely by it's appearance (the visuals) cause I ain't into this instagram famous waffle as much as I'm for the ice cream😛

Food review:
(1) Strawberry waffle - if you're a fan of whipped cream and strawberries, then you'd love this! Sadly, my girls and I aren't really a big fan, but then don't let this deter you from trying it out! The strawberries was a mix of sweet and sour; it tasted good with a thin layer of whipping cream (if you LOVE the cream you should try spreading thicker layer) on the waffle, strawberries and a bit of honey.

(2) Chrysanthemum soft serve with brownie - there were 3 choices: (i) cup, comes with Chrysanthemum jelly (ii) with brownie (iii) with waffle. We wanted brownie so we went for that. The brownie was soft, warm and moist; it goes well with the soft serve. The highlight for this dessert was of course the soft serve, and IT DID NOT DISAPPOINT. Preference wise, we don't prefer foods that are too sweet so this soft serve is just sweet enough to feed our sweet tooth. The aroma of chrysanthemum could be tasted in each scoop (this is making me want to go back for it again🤤).

Price:
(1) RM19
(2) RM16 - if not mistaken

Enjoyed it very much, but too oily. The concept is similar to a buffet, but they weight your vege & meat. 👍👍

Pictured is the Nagoya Mazesoba DX, which is topped with some charred pork belly slices and comes at RM29 for the small size. As a big eater, the small sized bowl was enough to satisfy my cravings and anymore could potentially be cloying, as at times it came across slightly too flavourful for my liking. But don’t let that deter you - the brilliance is in the leftover remains as it is used to soak up and mix with a free scoop of rice. Haters of green onion, omit them or order something else as there will be heaps of it. The gyoza was a nice surprise as well and it’s 6 for RM8!

Great gyoza now available at Hanabi, glorious home of the mazesoba (and seasonal items featuring everything from chicken tantanmen to the latest tsukemen feature). .

Really impressive gyoza here. Some of the best I've had, likely one of the best in KL. Just a step below gyoza king in Singapore, which has better bite and resistance to the skin. And more substantial innards. And amazing sides. But anyway that comparison aside these are pretty damn good gyoza. 5.5/5.5 for the ambience and a good 6/8 for the food, on the aunty scale. By comparison, it ranks a lot higher than places such as the Kenny Roger's branch at TBS and the eggu sando at Family Mart Sri Petaling but then again rating and comparing food is always a finicky business. Which isn't to say 'aiya it's subjective la people got different taste' which by God, is such a cop out, especially when there are objective measures to discuss subjective traits etc etc, but rather to say that even keeping track of an internal rating system is hard enough. Unless you revise ratings each time you try a new item, and go multiple times to verify the consistency and judge how your feeling about it changes. And all that boring stuff.

Point is: may you stay open forever, Menya Hanabi. We all know quality food never stays that way permanently in KL so come and try it while it's still great. Try the mazesoba stuff first la cos that's their signature and it's super rare anyway, don't think you'll find another spot with it in KL, or at least not quite at this level. And make sure you add rice afterwards to the leftover sauce because I do believe this spot had some of my favourite rice in town. Places like Uokatsu talk a lot about their rice game but this place right here? I'll rice it up any day fam. .
