Yamachan Malaysia @ Plaza Arcadia, Desa ParkCity

Nagoya's popular Yamachan izakaya chain has embarked on its first outpost in Malaysia, specialising in 'tebasaki' deep-fried chicken wings that make for a crisp, subtly spicy but mostly savoury companion to beer (RM15.90 for five pieces; a variation that's slicked up with punchy-flavoured Worcestershire sauce costs RM12.90 for three pieces).

The menu is extensive enough for a complete meal, with heavily miso-accented highlights like tender battered shrimp on rice balls with miso sauce & mayonnaise (RM16 per plate) & offal-loving offerings including miso-simmered pork entrails (RM13.90) & Japanese curry rice with miso-braised chicken giblets that may translate fairly well as comfort food (RM13.90).

  2. Which part of the pork entrails are those...stomach or intestines? Though I love both. Glad to know that there's a specific way to eat chicken wings that I'm not aware of until know...hehe! :D

  6. RM15.90 for 5 wings isnt too bad! Since wings at hawkers are about RM3 already!
