Somo @ Mont Kiara


Somo is currently one of our first choices when the words "Happy Hour" are being mentioned, especially on a Friday where there is no rain and the weather has been dreadfully hot the whole day. The desire to sip on cold frosty beer controls your mind and before you know it, you are seated outside the main bar ordering your happy hour Tiger beer and you start to point your finger all over the menu as well.. this place serves pretty cheap beer, at RM50++ for 2 jugs and after happy hours, its slightly steeper at RM33-35++ which is still cheaper then most places especially for the ambience..the music is a mix of slow, jazzy and old school music which doesnt drown out your procrastination while you drink more beer..

Another good thing is they serve my favourite cuisine, Japanese which i automatically give plus points for..Strengths include teppanyaki and the yakitori..they do a decent softshell crab maki for only RM12++ and also that takoyaki with a yam twist to it..They also did do an affordable salmon and ikura bowl which is basically sushi rice with salmon sashimi slices and roe for RM32++ although we were warned to order it during the days it comes in for ultimate freshness, if not mistaken its wednesday and another day..aiks! Ok no more trying to sell like a sales man..lets have a look..

The assorted yakitori platter (10 sticks for RM32++ or RM36++ or ala-carte) This platter had alot of weird items like pig fat which was superbly crunchy..i am swallowing my saliva as i type this..bacon with asparagus and assorted chicken and beef cubes as well..

The chicken teppanyaki (RM19++) which was done well..the meat is on the crispy side and the veges are plentiful..makes it a perfect meal for those who wants to cut down on the carbs and replace it with beer..

Assorted tempura (RM28++), i had better so try to avoid this one..

How can we come here without the beer..A 3 litre heineken bottle..the guy is not included by the way..

So this is in Shoplex Mont Kiara, two doors away from Terrace Bakery.. happy hours start from 5-9 and scores a respectable 7.8 out of 10.. recently i heard theres been an influx of young good looking chicks hanging around the area starting from Friday nights..unfortunately its all been heard from and not experienced first hand..Haha so at your own risk.. but definitely value for money place to have some drinks and chat all nite long..

I remember it was originally Soju but they must have changed their name to Somu. Food looks interesting - I wonder where is their kitchen since there is such limited space there.
