THE REASON WHY KAK KOY IS A WINNER
Kak Koy Japanese Restaurant.
“P we must be early” shaking the door handle and cupping my eyes to get a better view through the window. “Are you sure they open at 1:30”, “yes fam, I booked the table”. We waited till 1:40 then I cupped my face again against the window and this time I could see shadows then people and suddenly the door was opened but on my near left side, by a chef with a real friendly face. “Hola”
“Oh!” “Hola”. “You silly old sausage”, P whispered while thrusting me forward by nudging me in the back, “you been trying to get in through the wrong door?!”
The very pleasant chef with the real friendly face told us we could sit anywhere we wanted. Freely, we walked by the first communal marbled bank & then toward the one at the rear, I scanned the ideal spot then pointed “There´s nice”
“I love it here, it´s so welcoming “, I said climbing up onto the stool & flicking off my flip flops allowing my feet to dangle.
We were handed two menu cards plus a pencil. Card 1º had a list of approx 12 dishes the most expensive being €8.60. Card 2º marked Temporada (seasonal) had around 6 plates priced between 10 & 18 euros. We were told to go steady & order 4-5 dishes each to begin by the nice chef. “If you want more after then order more” I like the last sentence. Why? Because “The mind knows not what the tongue wants” You know what I mean? Its disappointing when waiting staff nonchalantly watch you order a shit load of food then observe a shit load of wasted food without saying boo…..No. Not at Kak Koy. And it was much appreciated.
At Kak Koy a Japanese restaurant, the chefs take care of you from start to finish. talking you through the menu, whatever you need to know, o sea, they are the ones preparing the food, so what can they not tell you? It´s a nice touch.
Shm´t @#*! You know what, you just have to Go! Go vibe on exceptional Japanese food made with the same integrity Mr Hideki Matsuhida infuses into all his food. Shoulder to shoulder watch the chefs cook in a completely open planned concept. See for yourself how nice they are. Enjoy Mr Matsuhidas food at moderate prices. Think tapas & super robatayaki dishes. Think happy place. It is a happy place.
Just Don´t expect racks of makis or California rolls its better than that!
