The Friday Wine Lunch @ Kannichikan Yakiniku with Jacob’s Creek

Once again I was invited to the delectable Friday Wine Lunch by Pernod Ricard @ Kannichikan Yakiniku with Jacob’s Creek (thanks Yik Peng!). You might remember last time it was @ Chinoz on the Park with Wyndham Estate.

An interesting concept this time, Japanese influenced Korean BBQ. Who says the Japanese and the Koreans can’t get along? I guess food solves all conflicts? The location was Jalan Damai, Ampang (if you know where Rahsia is, it’s on the same road just off Jalan Ampang).

The turn-out was quite good and the interior was nice and spacious and clean!

The food was coupled with sparkling wine this time starting out with the Jacob’s Creek Sparkling Chardonnay Pinot Noir. The starter was Edamame, Morokyo (mixed vege), Tofu Salad & Gyu Tataki (slice roasted beef).

The sauces and marinades used were really tasty without being overpowering and went very well with the wine.

Following that the charcoal grill was fired up and we got to the white meat course; Tori (Chicken), Saba (Mackerel) & Hotate (Scallop).

We self cooked on the hot grill, you could get a nice smokey charcoal flavour with some careful maneuvering. The scallops were fantastic, and surprisingly I enjoyed the Mackerel (generally not a big Mackerel fan).

Following those delights it was time for some carbs! Onigiri (rice ball), Chijimi (Korean pan-cake), Kakuteki (pickled white radish), Moyashi (bean sprouts) & Chrisya (lettuce).

And then, what everyone had been waiting for! The meat course, delicious wagyu beef, cow tongue and much more served with Jacob’s Creek Sparkling Rose.

The collection above contains Jyo Tan (prime beef tongue), Jyo Bara (prime shortrib), Jyo Rosu (prime ribeye), Karubi (bone-in Kalbi), Wagyu Bara (premium Wagyu shortrib) & Wagyu Rosu (premium wagyu ribeye).

To be honest I wasn’t entirely sure which was which (apart from the tongue and the ribeye) but they were all delicious especially paired with the fruity sparkling rose which wasn’t too rich.

To finish was a simple dessert which reminded me of Chinese ‘tong yuen‘.
