Sushi Azabu, located at 4th floor ISETAN The Japan Store Lot 10, which is well-known for the Michelin starred New York based sushi restaurant; many may find this place must be very costly and costing your arms and legs dining in here. Apparently, there is something really affordable and satisfying inside here that not many people know about.
The Hanakago Set is priced only at RM 50 per set, comes with chawan mushi, 2 kinds of sashimi, Hanakago that comes with 4 kinds of side dish, 3 kinds of tempura, grilled salmon and tamago, 2 pieces of inari sushi, miso soup and a dessert.
I can assure you this is a very satisfying meal. At just Rm 50 you get a little bit of everything, the set is not only pleasant for eyes but also deliciously satisfying the tummy and palate. I enjoyed from the sashimi to tempura, the inari sushi to dessert.
4 kinds of side dish, 3 kinds of tempura, grilled salmon and tamago
Inari sushi has wowed me the most, vinegar-ed rice mixed with shiso leaves, that hint was mind-blowing. Shiso leaves has elevated the flavor of sushi rice and sweetened tofu pocket.
Last but not least, the dessert in this set was marvelous too. Goma ice cream has to be the best and richest black sesame ice cream I can find in Malaysia. It was rich, creamy, aromatic and savoury. Yes, slightly salty and savoury, not sweet at all.
Dining with my sushi kaki is always fun, we got a small treat from Chef Markey, get to try out on aka uni for the first time.
Thanks to Markey-san
Engawa is always love
