Most of the people staying nearby Damansara Uptown & Damansara Utama should be familiar with their existence by now. They have been operating in this area for 2 years now, but it is too shame for me that I never had time to drop by this Japanese Restaurant before. Finally, here I am for lunch. It is run by a Hong Kong chef who has the love for Japanese cuisine. After working in the F&B industry in Hong Kong for years, he decided to move his restaurant business to Malaysia as he fell in love with the laid back and relaxed environment in Malaysia. Wakon Japanese Restaurant is located Damansara Uptown (Next to Frisson Coffee). Wakon has a very simple menu which mainly consists of grilled dishes such as Pork Neck Skewers, BBQ Squid, BBQ Chicken Wings and many more. On top of these, Wakon offers ala carte menu such as rice options, ramen and their signature such as Black Truffle Mixed with Udon. The ambiance of the place was simple and comfortable Japanese Izakaya-style interior. They have 2 types of seating area. Open spaced dining seating area and private room.
Crab Roe Salad as an appetizer while waiting for the foods.

Wasabi Gyoza has a nice twist to it. Yeah!! Perfectly Pan-Fried Gyoza with creamy Wasabi on top rather than dipping it with shredded ginger and vinegar. It was soft on the inside and crispy on the outside. In additional, Wasabi really adds an additional kick to it. The best thing about it is that the flavour was not too strong and it is suitable for everyone.

BBQ Pork Belly was super good. It smells so tempting that will make you loose your patient in taking picture. It was juicy and tender and just melts in my mouth. It is one of my favourite parts in the pork and I guess most of us love Pork belly right??
BBQ Pork Belly @ RM6.90
BBQ Pork Neck Meat was tender and caramelized perfectly. They use an electric charcoal to prepare the skewers instead of real charcoal to avoid having the smoke trapped inside the restaurant and to ensure customers enjoy the food in a good ambiance. Who like to dine-in in a smoky place right??

BBQ Squid was not chewy and cooked at perfection. Yummy!!

Everyone loves Chicken Wing. What if told you that it is something extra special that you gonna be crazy about it?? (If you are a crazy fan of Tobiko as well?? Yeah!! Their chicken wing is stuffed with Tobiko and my first impression was "WOW, damn good, how they do it" The chicken was tender, juicy and when you bite it, the Tobiko just burst in your mouth "WOW"
Mentaiko Chicken Wings @ RM12.90 (1 set 2 pcs)
Scrumptious combination of udon, Truffles and Tobiko. It has a unique taste makes you addictive for it. Good!!!
