We had a sumptuous lunch of Japanese hot pot at the newly opened Stone Nine by Jiro Shabu today. Upon entering the restaurant, we were awed by the awesome interior decor. The center piece of oranges in a steamy pool was breathtaking. The restaurant covered in shades of wood exudes a sense of tranquility while the dining utensils were elegant.
As expected, the price tags are hefty. Do expect to spend a minimum of RM40 onwards per person (depending on what item you choose from the menu), with the cheapest beverage (Green Tea) priced at Rm 5 (but it’s refillable). The dining experience is exclusive and we enjoyed our lunch so much that I have already requested for the hubs to bring us here again on Thursday for my birthday! Alycia was so disappointed that she was left out in today’s lunch as she has a 3-day camp in school, which only ends tomorrow.
Everyone gets to savor his/her own personal hotpot and the ingredients are impressively fresh. You can choose from a variety of different flavored soups from chicken to winter melon, miso, spicy miso, seaweed, tom yum and much more.
When the raw meat arrived, we were again awed by the impeccable presentation and quality. The premium New Zealand Scotch fillet was both top notch in quality and the presentation was superb.
Hubs ordered a plate of Iberico pork that’s fed with acorn and the meat tastes delicate and superb.
We ordered 3 pots of soups (chicken, winter melon and spicy miso). Each pot costs RM6.
Plenty of choices for toothsome dipping sauce and condiments to go with the meat.
Handmade pork balls with cheese within and house-made fish paste.
Sea grouper slices
Watermelon and lime juice, on the house..
The damage was RM317.45. Pretty expensive for a lunch but worth the price as the ingredients were of good quality and fresh. As the portion of the food was pretty small, we were not overly stuffed. In fact, I wasn’t exactly full after lunch 😬
The food passed my very sensitive throat test too, i.e. NO unquenchable thirst after lunch, though I’d guzzled down a lot of soup and yummy dipping sauces.

Thus, we could still have a very meaty and heavy meal of Ba Kut Teh for dinner! And walloped everything clean!
Have a great week ahead all and sundry! It’s no holiday for me though it’s the school holidays. Tomorrow I have to wake up at 6 a.m. for school run! 😩
