sushi & sashimi bentoIt was one of those spontaneous moments when JFKA wannabe, Nipples, asked me to join him for dinner at the latest mall in town and I said yes. I wanted to eat at Kampachi, and he didn’t mind eating at Kampachi again, so it was an easy decision to make. After all, I never say no to Japanese food.

Seasoned baby octopus

Getting a table wasn’t very difficult on a weekday night, but we chose to sit at the sushi bar instead, hoping to catch a glimpse of some of the action behind the counter. We were not disappointed. 2 little plates of seasoned baby octopus were placed in front of us. I loved the sweet and savoury dish which went down in an instant.

cold soba with dried nori tsuyu with condiments - raw quail's egg and chopped spring onions

Since Nipples didn’t get a chance to eat soba on his first visit to Kampachi, this was his obvious choice. His cold soba served with crisp nori came with a tsuyu broth with raw quail’s egg and chopped spring onions.

grilled fish tempura

His set also came with tempura and grilled fish. If I’m not mistaken, it cost a little over RM30. He seemed quite pleased with his meal.


I took the sushi and sashimi bento (RM40). What I like about the sashimi is that they were generous portions – thick cut and very fresh.


It also came with grilled unagi (eel). Aaaah. Despite the unadventurous orders, this was comfort food for us. The food’s good. The prices are reasonable. The ingredients are fresh. Definitely worth a second visit.
