One of the best lunches of 2014

For the full review, please see http://thehungrybunnie.blogspot.sg/2014/10/sushi-mitsuya.html

Sushi Mitsuya offers just 3 sets for lunch (there's no ala carte menu here, for lunch or dinner), which may seem a little constrained, but the food was so sublime, the lack of choice didn't bother me one bit. I got the Ichie Set ($60) which comprised a duo of appetizers, 8 piece sushi medley, makimono, soup and dessert, all dictated by the season's finest and the chef's inclinations. I'm never as adventurous as I am at high-end Japanese restaurants, but I was well-rewarded for trusting my palate with the chef. Every course was just dreamy and memorably so. 

We had:

1) Persimmon, Spinach and Fried Gluten: married beautifully in a pool of walnut sauce
 
2) Scallops, Garland Chrysanthemum and Honshimeiji: kept light and crisp in a vinegar tofu sauce
 
3) While the sushi variants weren't particularly luxurious, the chef's treatment of each seafood was first-rate. Every sushi was so well-balanced and seasoned, I didn't need additional soy dips. First up was Surf Crab, firm and clear, simply brushed with a sweet-ish soy to complement the natural flavour of the seafood. 
 
4) Sea Whelk: similarly given a light coat of soy and topped with a dollop of grated ginger to counteract its umami tendencies. 
 
5) White Baby Shrimp: one of my favourites, so gloriously sweet and moist. 
 
6) King Mackerel: aburi-ed to give its skin a crisp contrast, and there was a pike mackerel, that, in my haste, had gobbled it up before taking a picture of...oops! 
 
7) Lean Tuna: sparkling fresh, meaty and scrumptious. 

8) Also aburi-ed for a juxaposition of textures, the Seabass was also excellent. 
 
9) Asari Clams: juicy and bursting with the salty essence of the sea. 
 
10) Sea Eel: burnished with a creamy wafu-like dressing, enhancing its sweetness

11) Maki Gourd was a superb palate cleanser, with its crisp clean taste. 

12) Makimono: this had a delightfully crunchy mouthfeel.

13) Seaweed Soup: liberally laced with shredded vegetables for extra oomph. 

14) Seaweed Jelly with Muscat and Mango: so nuanced and light.

15) If a multi-course sushi set isn't for you, then the Bara Chirashi Set ($50) may be more your thing...it's the cheapest option for lunch! But, it's no slouch. The humongous bowl was brimming with a melange of seafood, sparkling fresh and a riot of sumptuous colours, and it's paired with the same couple of appetizers, soup and dessert

My 2nd Time At Sushi Mitsuya

Take 2 at Sushi Mitsuya didn't disappoint... This time, I went for a very simple Chirashi Bowl, which was pleasantly more than just the rice bowl... 2 appetizers, Chirashi Bowl, soup and dessert, and the $50++ lunch was even more reasonable than I though it would be... And mostly importantly, the rice was cooked well, and all the flavours mixed well... I reckon my 3rd visit is not only assured, but will probably be a dinner and am already looking forward to it!
