MHB Digital had an exclusive influencer dinner in partnership with Canmake Tokyo and Torikin at J’s Gate Dining, Lot 10 on 21st November 2018. The dinner was a good opportunity for our influencers to make new friends, and familiarise themselves with the new range of Canmake Tokyo products while enjoying some delicious Japanese fare by Torikin.
Nicholle Liew, Marketing Manager of Teeni Enterprise (the official and sole importer/ distributor of Canmake Tokyo products in Malaysia) shared with us that Canmake Tokyo has been in the market for 33 years and has consistently enjoyed tremendous popularity with its range of petite-price cosmetics that takes the effort out of looking pretty and fashionable.
Canmake has been in Malaysian market for 13 years with Teeni Enterprise and has since expanded and is currently available at over 150 points of sales (both offline and online) which includes Sasa, Aeon Wellness, Guardian, Aeon Departmental Store, Hermo – Online Beauty Shop, Play-Up by Parkson and Ourshop by Airasia. In 2017, Teeni Enterprise opened the first Canmake stand-alone store in Malaysia located in Damen Mall in USJ Subang.
Canmake Tokyo products are designed in petite sizes for convenience to bring around even in the smallest cosmetic pouch, or to easily fit in a handbag. The products are manufactured to the quality, made only with finest ingredients. Although the products are of high quality, Canmake’s products come with affordable price point, and are priced from RM31.90 to RM86.70 in Malaysia.
Based in Fukuoka, Torikin at J’s Gate Dining in Lot 10 Shopping Centre Kuala Lumpur has its roots in “Toricho,” a renowned restaurant in Roppongi, Ginza, Tokyo. Torikin inherited the tradition and history of Toricho, as well as its sauce that has been passed down for 60 years. Using only fresh ingredients and an original blended seasoning, Torikin’s yakitori brings out the best taste in its skewers, while keeping them simple.

A little East meets West starter here – with the creamy black bean cream cheese served with crackers! Not your typical Japanese starter but nonetheless delicious!

Boiled Chicken Breast with Spicy Sesame Sauce
Boiled chicken breast is usually quite dry and tasteless however we were immensely surprised by the juicy tenderness of this one which was topped with a spicy sesame sauce!
Tori Soboro Don
Minced Chicken on rice
A very filling dish indeed topped with a beautifully cooked egg. Break the yolk into the rich and minced meat and combine for a rich and savoury main dish that’s really filling enough on its own!
Yakitori Set – 4 types of assorted yakitori
Four (4) different types of freshly grilled yakitori that really hit the mark! Goes great with some Japanese beer or whisky highball!
Creamy Greentea Tiramisu
Torikin’s signature and very popular dessert which was a wonderful blend of matcha atop creamy tiramisu! Some of our influencers even had second helpings as it was that delicious!
Grilled Japanese Shiratama served with Sweet sauce and cream
Lovely sweet mochi grilled and served with cream – rich, chewy and sweet at the same time! A truly decadent end to a wonderful Japanese meal!
