Ki Modern Japanese & Bar – New Winter Menu

Located in the midst of the hustle and bustle in the financial district, Ki Modern Japanese & Bar serves up a fresh take on the Japanese style of leisurely eating and drinking with friends. The dining rooms at Ki are divided into 3 main areas – the bar area and depending on one’s preference, guests can choose to either sit in their spacious sushi bar section where they can watch chef’s prepare their sushi up close and personal. If guests prefer a dining environment where it is a little bit more formal (suitable for business meetings), the dining area is another great option.

Seared Scallops ($39.00)

Matcha Cheesecake ($11.00)

  • with mascarpone, cream cheese & almond tuile
  • Last but not least, we opted for a Matcha Cheesecake and boy was this ever delicious! Aside from its presentation, the matcha taste was not too rich (the way I like it). The cheesecake itself had a nice creamy consistency, dense and was not overly sweet on the palette.
