The true meaning of Watami in Japanese Kanji, WA stands for Harmony and TAMI stands for People. Therefore Watami means “gather people to dine in harmony”. Actually WATAMI comes from the name of the founder, Watanabe Miki. Few weeks ago, me and few bloggers was at 1 Utama for WATAMI Japanese Casual Restaurant New Menu Review.

I remembered the last time I dine here the restaurant was pork free but now they have pork dishes in their menu. When I interviewed Mr.Takada Hiromitsu, Director Business Development Department, WATAMI Group the reason for this changes are to bring the originality of taste, variety dishes and speciality from WATAMI Japan to Malaysia. So now we can enjoy the dining experience like food, beverages and environment like in Japan.

This is the assorted skewers that consist of 5 skewers per serving namely beef & spring onion roll skewer, chicken thigh skewer, pork & cherry tomato roll skewer, chicken gristle skewer, chicken wing skewer. Well, the one I find special is the chicken gristle skewer or it’s the chicken cartilage. Its crunchy and I think not many restaurant serve this too. The rest of the skewer are quite standard.
