An oasis of calm, with a solid MIGF menu for RM230++ with sake & wine.

There’s a plus point: Xenri’s staff will snap a photo of festival menu customers at their table and print it out for them to keep as a souvenir.

Homemade Chilled Beancurd with Hotaru Squid Ink Sauce

Smooth and silky; one of the healthiest-tasting items we’ve tried on our MIGF spree.

3 Xenri Menara Hap Seng

Premium Tuna Belly, Hokkaido Wild-caught Scampi and Japanese Green Sea Urchin

A visual marvel, with an ice igloo housing the tuna. Taste-wise, everything was satisfyingly fresh.

4 Xenri Menara Hap Seng

Slow-poached Salmon Skin Roll in Tsubame Ginger Broth

Warm & comforting.

5 Xenri Menara Hap Seng

Grilled Kobe Wagyu in Fresh Soy Yuba Skin Parcel

It’s actually in the background of this pic, since the accompanying prawn head looked more photogenic. Tender and meaty.

6 Xenri Menara Hap Seng

Japanese Rice with Baby Sardine in Magnolia leaf

Probably the least successful item. Overly mushy and lacking in flavour.

7 Xenri Menara Hap Seng


Homemade Sunny Side Up. A cool dessert comprising tofu with peach mousse.

8 Xenri Menara Hap Seng

A La Carte Chawanmushi

The MIGF menu was rather light, so we also ordered items from the regular a la carte menu. The chawanmushi with foie gras, king crab & caviar was served gorgeously in eggshells.

9 Xenri Menara Hap Seng

Foie Gras with Unagi

An unbeatable combo; worth returning for this by itself.

10 Xenri Menara Hap Seng


Chitose Tsuru Junmai Tachotzuru Sake, organically grown La Motte Pierneef Sauvignon Blanc 2008, Haute Cabriere Pinot Noir 2005, South Africa.
