If you are looking to pamper yourself with some delicious Japanese food, leave it to Sushi Kuu. Prices may not come cheap, but every bite is a treat, especially the Sashimi and Seafood Onsen Egg.
Located on the first floor of Wellington Place, Sushi Kuu is a very popular place among locals.
The restaurant has a modern and stylized interior.
Check out this Hario Ice Sake Dispenser. According to the waitstaff, this sake dispenser cost US$400 each!
Japanese Black Pork "Shabu Shabu Salad" (HK$150) - A bed of greens topped with thinly sliced Japanese Black Pork, drizzled with sesame sauce and fried garlics.
Monk Fish Liver (HK$90) - Ankimo or monk fish liver is considered one of the Japanese's delicacies. It is often referred as le foie gras de la mer (foie gras from the sea) given the similarity in color, texture and flavor. FYI - Ankimo is listed at number 32 on the World's 50 most delicious foods complied by CNN Go in 2011.
Seafood "Onsen" Egg (HK$100) - This gotta be the highlight of my trip! The Seafood Onsen Egg was heavenly, with egg yolk running out, marrying the delicate uni and fish roe. Double thumbs up!!
If only I could have another bowl......if only....
Assorted Sashimi (HK$340) - These rectangular sashimi blocks were buttery, oily and fresh. I can never find such high quality sashimi in Kuala Lumpur.
Assorted Sashimi (HK$460) - More sashimi to satisfied our taste buds.
Grilled Wagyu Ox Tongue (HK$250) - The Wagyu Ox Tongue was surprisingly soft and tender. Even though the meat contained substantial amount of fats, the slightly charred corners added a different dimension to it.
Deep Fried Japanese Chicken (HK$120) - The chicken was tender on the inside and crispy on the outer layer. It was less impressive compared to its peers.
Prawn Tempura Avocado Roll (HK$120) - Lightly battered deep fried prawn topped with avocado and fish roe. The roll was crunchy from the tempura and creamy from the avocado. It had a prefect ratio of all the ingredients, as I could taste every layer of the roll.
Dragon Roll (HK$120) - The sushi rice was moist and sticky, with sweet unagi riding on top of it. The size of the roll was perfect for a single bite.
Cold Sanuki Udon (HK$80) - The noodles were crazy good! It was chewy and cooked to al dente.
Cold Inaniwa Udon (HK$90) - I have no problem eating this everyday. The quality of the udon was top notch with a springy texture.
Yuzu Ice Cream (HK$40) - Cooling, Creamy and Contented!!
Verdict: TOTALLY SMITTEN
