Chirashi Sushi Jyo-sen.



Another chirashi post.

First time i tried the famed otoro, which is tuna belly. Its has a texture similar to beef marbled with fat.. and yes, it does taste heavenly.

The serving is extremely small and pricy, but each piece of sashimi was lightly seared and still retained their original texture and is paired with their own individual sauce and ingredients.

Every single bite was flavorful, tender, and juicy. Each type of seafood was unique in flavor, i really can’t describe how beautiful everything tasted. It was like having a medley of complimenting flavors dancing on my tastebuds, and that was mind blowing.

Even the short grained rice was very well done. The texture was firm to the bite but still soft and fluffy. Paradoxical description, i know.😅

A poke theory 

Very Meh.

This was supposed to be an avocado miso salmon poke bowl. Couldn’t really detect the taste of avocado in the miso sauce and had a hard time digging for the slivers of salmon hidden somewhere in there. Completely disappointed with this. 😦

Salmon Samurai

Lunchtime takeout, decided to try the seared salmon sashimi with spicy cod roe mentaiko with yuzu-ume brown rice. 

It tasted pretty heavenly, i ate everything with the wasabi you see in the rice and another two packets of wasabi that was provided on the side. A nice and light meal. 

They have high quality miso soup as well, with large chunks of salmon, shrooms, carrots and daikon.😊

Ginza Kushi Katsu

I have never tried beef cutlet (Gyukatsu) before, always thought pork and chicken was the norm for katsu dishes. 

The gyukatsu is served medium rare, with the breaded layer fried to a crispy finish. There are mini teppans at the side too so that you can grill the individual slices a lil more should you prefer to have more well do. I like my beef to be less bloody looking, so on to the teppan it went! The meat was super melty and tender, overall i liked it alot. The only thing that i felt spoilt the experience was the milk custurd came with the katsu set on the side. The custurd itself tasted ok, but the crimson strawberry sauce at the top was pretty questionable. It reminds me of those packeted strawberry milk that you get from supermarkets.
