Sushi & Yakitori experience @ Uo-Sho, Plaza Damas
Here comes I share my second experience in Uo-Sho. Oh yes, I must highlight, I came here 2 times in a week!
Read about my first amazing experience in Uo-Sho .
First thing first, pick a bottle of sake!
As it was my sake bff’s birthday, I picked up this Kuheiji.
Kuheiji Eau Du Desir Junmai Daiginjo is a bottle I always wish to try. Made of Yamada Nishiki sake rice, with rice polished to 50%; it was so floral on the nose, mellow sweet. It tasted so delicate on the palate, with slight fizzy bubbly like champagne, very elegant too. Also, I experienced different changes after each nigiri sushi that came with different neta! Huge surprise to me!
Salada with miso sauce
We started off our meal with a salad, dressed up with special miso dressing crafted by Kunio-san. Very appetizing and very very delicious. How can a salad taste so good as well?! Simple yet delicious! Argggh. Thinking about it makes me salivate again.
Ika – Squid
Love it as a start of the course! Firm and slight chewy!
Fugu – Puffer fish
Hirame – Flounder
Kue – Grouper
Ahhh, doink doink!
Hotate – Scallop
Engawa from Hirame
Love its crunchy chewiness! It tasted way so good than the aburi version that most places offer.
Kohada – Gizzard Shad
I always love kohada but it is not easy to get a great great one. This was aged for 1 week and paired perfectly with the aka-su flavoured shari. Writing about this make me wanna revisit again, asap!
Akagai – Ark Shell or red clam
Super duper sweet! Amai!
Shime Saba – cured mackerel
Ahhhhh, big big big love! Chef spoiled us with this handroll .
Ahhhhhhhhh (I ahh-ed longer), triple big big big love! Always love handroll this way, loaded with uni, velvety smooth and sweet.
Tempura Shirako, sprinkled with charcoal salt
Crispy on the outside and soft velvety fluffiness on the inside.
Do you know Kunio-san make really great yakitori too?! if I am not mistaken, yakitori is available only on Mondays.
By this time, we popped another bottle of sake – Midorikawa Junmai from Niigata, this sake went so well with savoury food like yakitori.
Bonjiri – chicken’s tail.
I am not a big fan of chicken’s butt or tail but this wowed me! All came in perfect same size and it was very aromatic with the grilled “fats”.
Kawa – chicken skin
Another favourite of mine, beautifully grilled to its perfect crispiness.
Grilled pork belly
Yummy! And that on the side was a special miso (I forgot its name) to go with the yakitori.
As usual, another great and satisfying meal with the sushi and yakitori. The shari is extremely addictive; the flavours, the chewiness, and the temperature, all are on the point.
And happy birthday to my super bff!
