Two Chefs Lab Japanese Restaurant Bandar Mahkota Cheras
During this few months, we were stuck in the country like millions out there in Malaysia. We decided to visit some of the restaurants we never visited in Cheras and this include Two Chefs Lab Japanese Restaurant at Bandar Mahkota Cheras.
We travelled a lot for the past few years and during this COVID-19 pandemic, we spent more time discovering food places for our readers. Some of our fellow readers have told us to do more local food reviews for years and this is probably the restaurant you should visit in Bandar Mahkota Cheras, the Two Chefs Lab.
The Two Chef Lab is a popular Japanese restaurant in Bandar Mahkota Cheras and they have opened for four years and still going very strong. Two Chefs Lab is located at 23-G Sek 9, Jalan Temenggung 29/9, Bandar Mahkota Cheras. You can find a number of restaurants here so finding parking spaces can be a challenge.
We went to Two Chefs Lab for dinner with my family and we had to wait as we did not make a reservation. It is air conditioned restaurant, limited tables available due to the current COVID-19 regulation due to social distancing and hence it is full most of the time.
We started off dinner with their Mashed Potato. This is their homemade mashed potato mixed with onion and carrot and topped with black fish roes. We are not sure whether this is caviar but our boys loved this.
This is their version of unagi maki using river eel unagi, cucumber and topped with sweet mayonnaise sauce.
This unakyu maki is sweet in taste as the unagi rolled with cucumber for the crunchy texture and tamago with the rice and topped with sesame and mayonnaise sauce. This is tasty as its own and loved to have this with the pickle and the wasabi.
Two Chefs Lab Chirashi is bowl of sushi rice topped with variety of sashimi including their river eel unagi. What you get it combination of sashimi prawn, squid, tuna, salmon, pickle, unagi, tamago (fried egg), fish roe, salad and wasabi.
For chirashi don, you have to mix all the food together and eat so you get the balanced flavour. We really enjoyed this as you can taste the fresh flavours from the sashimi as well as the hints of the vinegar from the rice and wasabi.
Quality sashimi seafood and rice but we don’t fancy the taste of their unagi. Maybe it’s just our preference.
They offer two types of gyu don (beef rice), the Japanese Wagyu Don (RM 150) and Australia Beef at RM 39. This Australia beef with rice is topped with soft boiled egg with hints of truffle oil.
The texture of the beef is right, not overcooked and we love how they cut into thin slices. It is cooked to Medium as our kids don’t really know how to appreciate Medium Well yet.
We really enjoyed the beef and the combination of rice and the egg. The beef is tasty and we enjoyed their version of Gyu Don.
This is not ramen and they do offer udon and cold somen in their menu. They offer angel hair for their pasta and this Salmon Mentai Pasta is strong with flavour and our boys loved this.
It comes with generous amount of salmon and the pasta is al dente and coated with the tasty mentai sauce. For pasta lovers, this is not to be missed.
Two Chefs Lab Japanese Restaurant Bandar Mahkota Cheras is a hidden gem for those who are not staying in this part of Klang Valley. The food in general is good and the price is slightly high but they offer quality food. You pay for peanuts, you get peanuts and when you pay more, you get good food with quality ingredients. Do make a reservation if you intend to visit Two Chefs Lab Japanese Restaurant Bandar Mahkota Cheras.
