Sushi Mew @ The Westin Kuala Lumpur
Thanks to those crazy “spams” on social media (LOL). Especially from the red coloured app. The curiosity of trying out leads me and the bff to come here for on of our Thurs-dates.
Located in The Westin Kuala Lumpur, Sushi Mew serves modern Japanese cuisine, so for sushi aficionados who are craving for traditional or edomae style sushi experience; this may not be your place.
We opted for their lunch course that is priced at Rm 168. It comes with zensai, sashimi, nigiri, handroll, chawanmushi and dessert. This course fits perfectly for lunch hour crowd too, more or less in 1hour, you are done with the meal, and then you may move back to the office and continue with your work.
However, this course may not be able to satisfy a bigger eater’s tummy. Even for small eater, there are still some tummy spaces to fit in a few more. Well, it serves great as a trial course where you can try out first, check if you like it before heading straight to their full omakase course.
I like the idea of this Sake Symphony. Priced at only Rm 30 per carafe, 100ml each, you get to pick what you fancy to pair with your course.
Of course I did some homework before ordering the sake. I picked up the Kojimaya Untitled #1. Light yet complex characteristic, very fruity with smooth finish. Totally my thing!
The day, Chef Carson stood behind the counter, serving us his work.
We started off with Zensai – Uni Tofu, topped with Truffle Pearls. Jelly-liked but soft, umami and quite appetite boosting.
Tempura Japanese Corn
Ahhh… Sweetness overloaded with a crunch!
Sashimi – Hamachi
Fatty, creamy and fresh.
Madai – Red Snapper
Chutoro –medium fatty tuna
Tairagai – Japanese Pen Shell
I was super worry and afraid of –gai or any types of clams. Luckily this turned out great. The Tairagai was hinted with a sweet crunch.
Shima Aji – Striped Jack
Engawa Foie Gras Handroll
Melty, fatty handroll with aburi-ed engawa and foie gras
We ended our meal with Black Sesame Ice Cream as dessert
For Shari, there were some flavours but the rice grains weren’t as fluffy and plump. The texture was rather compact (?). Or the nigiri were too little so I couldn’t really taste them. Hmm…
