Sushi Azabu

This Michelin starred New York based sushi restaurant is one that sit TOP in my list among all. Headed by Chef Toshihide Terado (who is on the left in above photo), this is the sushi restaurant that serves heart-alluring authentic Tokyo style sushi with freshly imported fish from Japan.

There are 40 seats in the restaurant. If you keen to be seated at the counter table, observing the action and the Chef’s work, it is advisable to make reservation beforehand as those are the spots that quickly filled up by patrons.

Handsome chef strikes his charming smile to me *love*

There are 3 types of Course set available in Sushi Azabu, namely Koi, Azabu and Chef’s Specialty Choice. Chef’s Specialty Choice is priced at Rm 420 comes with chef’s surprises, the real omakase dining experience. Koi (Rm 120) comes with an appetizer, 10 pieces of Nigiri and Miso Soup. The nigiri are priced at Rm 6 to Rm 50 per piece. There is also a small selection of cold and hot appetizer which was not yet available during our visit.

And we headed for Azabu Course (Rm 220) that is consisted of an appetizer, 2 kinds of sashimi, chawanmushi, palate freshener, 7 pieces of Nigiri, Makimono, miso soup and dessert.

Started off with Hijiki

Appetizer – Shirasu (White bait) which was pairing with some chopped spring onions, seaweed, shredded radish, a little bit of spicy cod roe for extra kick and some seasonings.

Sashimi – Hamachi (yellow tail) and maguro (tuna) were fresh and succulent. Especially the kampachi, the texture was very bouncy and fully packed with natural sweet flavours from the fish.

Chawanmushi, served piping hot, silky smooth steamed egg custard that filled with fish and ginko and flavoured with dashi.

Our Nigiri came with Chutoro (tuna), Shimaaji (Trevally), Ika (Squid), Saba (Mackerel), Hotate (Scallop), Ebi (Prawn) and Ikura (Fish Roe). You will not need any additional of soy sauce for the sushi as the chef has swiped a paint of soy sauce on the fresh meat. That’s the art of having Nigiri. I started off with chutoro nigiri and ended with makimono. Love all the fresh seafood and the sweet hotate and Shimaaji; also that chewy bits in the makimono but the wasabi was slightly overpowering.

We also went crazy over the Uni (sea urchin) sushi (RM 50 per piece)!!! Really oh-mai-goddd…. That mellow-y creamy beautiful sea urchin was something to die for! So sweet and creamy!
