Fatty Tuna with Spring Onion Roll ($6.50)
First off, there is a lack of balance in its flavor, in that the tuna used was inconsistent and some of the rolls had an overwhelming taste of seaweed. The rice was cold, again disrupting the delicate balance of the dish. Lastly, there was a clear lack of physical strength put into rolling the sushi, resulting in a brittle structure that easily falls apart. The tiny air pockets trapped between rice grains also affect the overall taste slightly.
With that said, the Sushi does score on many other factors, all of which remained consistent with the other dishes I ordered. The rice used was of good quality (which is precisely why it shouldn't be served cold to demean its taste). It had just the right amount of stickiness, chewiness and fragrance. it was also seasoned well by the chef(s) to have just the right mix of vinegar, salt and sugar, resulting in the subtle but sophisticated style of smooth, ever-so-slightly sour-sweetness that any properly done sushi rice should have. The Tuna was also of good quality, with a robust, fatty taste that melts in your mouth and leaves a delicate lingering aftertaste in your mouth.
