Harumi 23 Opens at Plaza Arkadia Desa Park City
Now, this is something interesting to share for our readers. We didn’t manage to attend the food review but let’s share this new exciting Japanese restaurant Harumi 21 at Plaza Arkadia Desa Park City.
Malaysia is set to have a new and interesting Japanese restaurant under its wing as Harumi 23, the latest modern-innovative Japanese restaurant specialising in Tokyo Cuisine, is launching its first outlet in Plaza Arkadia located in the charming suburb of Desa Park City – bringing new Japanese dining experience to customers in the locality.
With a keen interest in the modernity of Tokyo Cuisine, creative Japanese desserts and third wave single origin coffee, Harumi 23 –aptly named to represent the 23 districts in Tokyo – is eager to introduce an exquisite and contemporary route on Japanese cuisine to Malaysians who are always accepting of new offerings and craving for a unique difference.
Ms Yeap Hong Lee, owner of Harumi 23 said that this new Japanese eatery was meant to create a memorable “wow” experience that would leave everyone wanting more, additionally to introduce the new and exceptional quality Tokyo Cuisine that can hardly be found elsewhere.
“Harumi 23’s authentic Japanese-style cuisine will represent a sensational new dining option for the thousands of families, friends and workers that visit Plaza Arkadia regularly. It will add to the diverse range of cuisines available in Desa ParkCity and we are enthusiastically awaiting to see Malaysians’ reaction to new styles of Japanese food,” said Ms Yeap.
Seeing an opportunity for contemporary Tokyo Cuisine to make its introduction, Ms Yeap started Harumi 23 like a spark – which fits perfectly in this location and is sure to not disappoint. With an attractive décor of Japanese-inspired influence to create a harmonious and relaxing environment, guests can dine at Harumi 23 and appreciate the delectably-crafted food in their own comfort, which are truly a feast for the senses.
“Tokyo is constantly brimming with new styles of cuisine and foreign foods, yet Tokyo is still firmly rooted in defining its own definition of food culture. Tokyo’s food culture can best be described as a mix of both old and new cuisines, positively bursting with flavours yet thoughtfully made. Seeing how Malaysians takes pride in their food culture, we want to bring the unique Tokyo cuisine into the market and allow for an exceptionally distinctive cuisine to flow here.”
Guests at Harumi 23 will love the diverse collection of signature dishes made fresh from the highest quality ingredients, with signature dishes including Charcoal Grilled Kushiyaki and organic Japanese pork (grilled with real charcoal on a traditional Japanese yakitori grill), Harumi 23 Tempura (prepared with high-grade Japanese tempura flour and ice-cold water to ensure crisp and light texture), Tokyo Spaghetti (inspired by the flavourful spaghettis found in Japanese-style spaghetti specialty shops in Tokyo), authentic Japanese dashi soups (made by steeping Kombu (kelp) and Katsuoboshi (dried bonito flakes) at a carefully controlled temperature to release the inherent delicious umami flavours in the ingredients) and, not to forget for the sweet-toothed, Harumi 23’s homemade range of sweet and refreshing Tokyo desserts which include Rockmelon and Green Tea Kakigori, Harajuku Souffle Pancakes, Shibuya Dessert Toast and Yuzu Freeze. Another delight that visitors to the restaurant can expect is the innovative third wave coffee which has a lighter roast profile using single origin coffee beans of the highest quality imported from Nozy Coffee of Japan.
“We pride ourselves in only offering the best quality Japanese cuisine with the finest ingredients imported directly from Japan. For example, our Sashimi is air-flown from Tsukiji Market in Tokyo twice a week, and the rice that we use are high-grade Koshi Hikari rice, planted and important from Japan where we find the quality better compared to others and giving our dishes a more robust flavor.”
Ms Yeap believes that great food can be found at any budget, and wants to convey the greatest food of Tokyo through the warm hospitality of Harumi 23, showing the notion of caring to its guests.
“Tokyo is known for its hospitality and the art of caring, where care is given with every step of the way in every meal regardless of price, from the preparation of a dish to the presentation. We want to bring that hospitality of the Japanese to Malaysia – elevating the level of dining experience for guests visiting Harumi 23.
