Mino Valentine’s Special @ Sushi Oribe, KL

  • Sumo

I hope my sushi post (again) won’t bored you guys as I cannot refrain myself from sharing this experience with you all. Sorry guys, please bear with me a little.

It was the pre-valentine’s day, Jessie and I, both singles us decided to “date” one of our favourite chefs, Nao-san and splurge ourselves on a sushi lunch. *self-love game strong here. LOL*

We were lucky to get our counter seats as all counter seats were taken by the couples on pre-valentine’s day. I couldn’t imagine how it was during the Valentine’s Day. You may click into and read about my first visit, second visit and third visit respectively.

Appetizer: Fugu no Kawa no Nikogori
We started off with this beautiful appetizer that deserved another few shots. Jellied Puffer Fish’s skin, a beauty food for us because it is packed with collagens!

Toro Aburi no Temaki
Again, Nao-san never fails to surprise us. On our first piece, he handed over this aburi toro handroll. OMGGGG, I am spoilt to max! I was overjoyed (in a hyper way) because I never expected to get this as my first piece. Love the lightly torched toro with its oil oozed out after torching.

Kohada – Gizzard Shad
Marinated for 3 days, topped with hojiso flower and kombu. It was just in time to taste them! The sourish-ness was just right, less sourish than what we had last month.

Wasabi leaves and pickled daikon
Surprise surprise, this round the wasabi leaves were less spicy.

Anago – Conger Eel (Salt and Yuzu kosho)
Love this very much as the anago was softer with velvety texture. A new texture my palate discovered from anago.

Came really huge and I had to eat its “head” first. Springy, bouncy, QQ, whatever could describe it all came out. LOL.

Since it was pre-valentine’s day, Nao-san made us this ending, in a heart shape.
