Asumo in Subang Jaya SS15 is one yakiniku spot you don't want to miss. Nestled among a row of shops housing various Japanese restaurants, the vast restaurant takes up two shop fronts, boasting around 40 private rooms ranging from cosy spaces for two to larger ones accommodating 6-8 people.

The restaurant stores a wide variety of Korean and Japanese Wagyu cuts from the delectable outside eye of knuckle to flank steaks. Keep an eye out for the restaurant's five speciality sauces (e.g seasoned wasabi, white rock salt, green onion soy sauce, spicy leek sauce, and Asumo's signature sauce) which are said to be absolutely divine.

For an explosion of omakase flair and wagyu beef delights, Aburii's avant-garde approach to furnishing its restaurant will certainly beckon you to enter its edifice. The eye-catching twin 'kitsunes' (foxes) in neon colours are often eye-catching enough for those making their maiden trip here.

Aburii, meaning "flame-seared," transcends the traditional dining experience, offering a chic and sophisticated environment. The restaurant beautifully combines the art of yakiniku (grilled meat) with innovative twists on aburi sushi, showcasing a plethora of dining areas that transport you through a culinary journey reminiscent of exploring multiple okiyas.
