Sushi Omakase @ Sushi Ori, Menara Keck Seng

  • Sumo

This marked my third time dining in Sushi Ori and this was my first time having dinner in Sushi Ori. Alright, I have to confess. The last round (in March) I didn’t pen down in my blog as I find the Tsubaki course I had didn’t really spice me up. Don’t get me wrong, the course was really amazing; just that my taste buds and my heart turned greedy and wanted more. LOL…

Read my first experience here during the first few week of Sushi Ori’s opening.

When I overheard the conversation between my friend Jessie and Ori-san ended with Awabi, ankimo… and many many more (in Japanese), my heart was lured. After few days of consideration (yes, this is needed as it will bring big hole to the wallet), I asked Jessie to book myself in for the Sushi Omakase Course.

Sushi Omakase

Our Sushi Omakase course is something different from the Omakase course as it focuses mainly on nigiri/ sushi.

Appetiser – Sakura Goma Tofu
It was still spring in early May, we were presented with this beautiful appetiser. Velvety smooth goma tofu touched with pinkish sakura. Aww…

Ori-san surprised us with Uni handroll as the first nigiri!!! I am truly sold! It was a memorable one, and I can still remember how happy we were with the first nigiri.

Aji – Horse mackerel
Always my favourite and the touches of condiments on the aji, together with the mixture of shari always wow my palate

Grilled Nodoguro – Blackthroat Seaperch
Sushi omakase course does not come with grilled dish. Cheesie saw our neighbour having this but she was too shy to request. Thanks to Jessie, we got it! How not to love Ori-san?! Thanks for pampering us. This was my first time on nodoguro. It was smooth, soft in texture, filled with fats, aromatic and very delicious!

Awabi and its liver sauce, served along with the shari ball
Oh my, the abalone was bouncy in texture; its sauce was earth-ly flavourful (really hard to describe it) and brimmed with essence from the sea. Shari ball was there to mop up the sauce! Super love this combo, it was really really really good that I wanna cry! This was the dish that tempted me over and yep, it was extremely memorable where I can still remember by heart.

Special Bowl – super high cholesterol bowl
High cholesterol bowl is over; it is now the super high cholesterol bowl era! Here is the combination of Kegani (horsehair crab), ikura (salmon roe), uni (sea urchin) and kani miso sauce. *scream*
Here is another best combo from Ori-san!!! Every mouthful was burst with mega cholesterol flavour. LOL

While we thought it was the end of the dinner, Ori-san filled us up with this Toro & Uni Roll. As the amylase did its work, the sweetness and the grease lingered in my oral cavity for long, yum!
