Sushi Oribe with Nao-san @ Vipod Residences KL
My first experience in Sushi Oribe was with my 男神 No.1 during my birthday early of the year. I revisited again for Mocas’s birthday in October and so, I met my 男神 No.2 – Nao-san!
We ordered their Mino Set which is priced at Rm 238++ and it came with appetiser, 11 pieces sushi, sushi roll, chawan mushi, miso soup and ended with a Dessert. As it was entering autumn (during October when we visited), do expect the fish you will get is fattier, which is what me and Mocas love.
Now I present, Nao-san on the service.
My experience with Nao-san was awesome. Nao-san himself is funny and bright, on and off he will joke and made his audiences (who are the sushi lovers like us) laugh out loud. He once mentioned, if he is not a sushi chef, he will be a comedian. Indeed, he has tremendous charisma on his “stage” that will lure your heart over his “show”. He too, magically turned this sushi into some “drug” which made us kept craving for more! LOL.
Japanese grouper (i don’t remember its Japanese name). First time having this and it was extremely doink doink bouncy.
Aji – Horse Mackerel
Shima Aji Belly
We were also given a try on this Wasabi “flower” which was actually the leaves from the wasabi plant. It was as spicy as the wasabi stem, but very addictive at the same time. we finished up the whole plate, bit by bit, slowly.
Kinmedai – Japanese Red Snapper
With a squeeze of lime
Hotate – Scallop
Touched with shio and yuzu
Or known as the Oh-My-God fish by Nao-san
Super rich, creamy and it literally just melted in your palate, I can confirm you will scream out oh-my-god after this whole piece of sushi.
Another favourite of ours, of course! On a small bed of rice topped with white shrimp, salmon roe, negitoro, uni and engawa too! Slightly different than the first round I had over here, there was additional of engawa in this bowl. Final touched up with squeeze of soy sauce before served, we both were in cloud nice. How not to love this serving?!
Negitoro Maki to fill us up, with more negitoro dosed up on top. Yum!
Even Tamago was also arranged in heart shape by Nao-san, the men don’t get the heart shape ya.
Happy birthday Mocas, I informed the staff it’s for birthday celebration and we got this huge surprise! Sweet potato cake!
Do note that there are only 8 seats at the counter, so reservation is strongly recommended if you wish to enjoy the counter sitting sushi experience.
