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.😅
The chirashi bowl here is fresh and tastes really good. The blobs of sea urchin in the middle was sweet and mild in taste, compared to the last one i tried at itacho, which was fishy and off putting.
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.😊
Appearance wise…. It doesn’t look like much, but on my word its really good. I can’t really describe properly with words what this actually tastes like. I wonder if I can find it in Singapore too? Probably not. So far, I’ve only ever came across the “Tokyo banana” sponge cake at this little store in Basement 4 of Ion Orchard Shopping Centre. I think I’ll have to go check out that store again one of these days. 🙂
I attended what my dad funnily called ‘The melon cutting ceremony’ yesterday. I’ve been waiting eagerly to taste one of the most expensive melons in the world! (Maybe. Haha. ) In Singapore, this kind of melon was actually being sold for a whopping SGD125. Everybody was waiting for it to ripen! After eating it, my conclusion is that… it was sweet and extremely juicy, but, it wasn’t really really sweet as I’ve seen most people describe it as. Thing is, the ones Dad ate in Hokkaido was much better. Maybe this particular one is an aberration. =P
