Thursday, March 02, 2006

JOGOYA has now open in StarHill Gallery Kuala Lumpur. JOGOYA is a buffet-style restaurant originated from Taiwan, they serve over 200 dishes, including Japanese, Chinese, Western and Seafood cuisines.

I been there twice, the first time go with tulan, SG, and TY. Tulan has a post on his webblog. I go second time with family and took a few shoots.

The ambient is great, the food was so so. Some of the foods are too salty, JOGOYA need to improve on the quality control. I do taste different compare the first time and second time.

Section for salad and hand rolled sushi

Display area for grilled food. There are some sample of grill fish, prawn, squid, crab, beef, chicken and etc.

Soup section, can choose from chicken or tom yum soup, pick your ingredient, crabs, prawn, fish and vege.

Dim Sum just next to the soup section, to be frank.. it's suck!

Sample for skewers


Juices and ice cream

Fresh juices and smooties

Thai Coconuts, I love this, the size is just nice. :)

Dessert looks nice.

Sashimi: salmon, tuna, scallop, squid, and otopus, but I don't eat any of these.

Sushi, I don't eat this either.

Ok, enough for the display items.. let's see what I had for lunch.

Fresh Oyster

Seafood Tom Yum soup

Xiao Long Bao (小笼包). Very bad. no soup inside. Have you ever taste a xiao long bao with no soup? Don't ever try this.


Tempura shrimps, scallops, fish fillets

Pan fries fish

Fries prawn with salt

Chilli crab, not really like it

Snails in chinese style. I took 8 pieces for photo shooting, I just ate one only.

Teriyaki Chicken, it's too salty.

Beef, black pepper style

Grilled beef, it's nice..

Enough for food, if photos above do appetize you, here is the disgusting one.. hehehehehe Urine bowl full with ice, wtf??!!! Yes! it's cool right?
No one should take photo in toilet, hopefully I don't get caught because of this :p

Shot the ice!

anonymous: I'm sorry to tell you, you have been cheated! A real Xiao Long Bao should have soup inside. I agreed that you can order Xiao Long Bao and Shanghainese dimsum restaurant, but not Esquire kitchen, Esquire kitchen is one of the "dark shop" to cheap ppl. Check out my other post on the real Xiao Long Bao here.

xioa long pao originates from Shanghai and the unique quality is the broth inside the flour can try them at Crystal Jade in Midvalley,Dragon-i in Cititel Hotel, and/or Chef Loong in SS2,PJ.

exactly like what I say, too salty. Jogoya suffer from the quality consistency, some time is good and some time is bad.

I like the vanilla flavour ice cream ;)

jj : I'm not a fan of buffet, neither fan of Japanese food.. For japanese buffet, ppl tell me there is not at Wisma UOA2, something like sasaki(I never been there). Jogoya at StarHill, you can see some of the picture above and blogs from other blogger.

Dim Sum, I've no idea. I know Park Royal serve dimsum buffet.
