The well-known and leading chain of Japanese restaurants has kicked off its Spring celebration with the best of the best - Kagoshima Pork. Freshly imported from Kagoshima Prefecture by Sushi Tei, this particular type of Pork is sought after for its sweet flavour and rich fragrance, combined with its delicate texture and juiciness. Chefs at Sushi Tei have whipped up a comprehensive Spring menu showcasing Kagoshima Pork signature dishes, as well as other specialties for the season. The Spring menu is available from now till 15 June 2013
- Sayori Sashimi @ $12 (s size) / $15 (m size)
The Spring delicacy is a sleek silver fish with a distinctive long and protruding lower jaw and it hence also known as Japanese halfbeak or needlefish. It has a sweet finish with a fine fishy flavour that not everyone will appreciate. Melded well with ginger and a light shoyu dip is enough to accentuate its sweetness and reduce the fishy smell.
- Kani Gyoza @ $6
Tender skin with every bite filled with succulent crab meat, seasoning was light yet flavourful. Served with vinegar and chilli oil dip.
- Pinta Tofu @ $4.80
Chilled organic tofu topped with century egg and fish roe, with creamy special century egg sauce. The century egg sauce do not have the distinct skunky after taste, in fact it was sweet and tasty. So simple yet so delicious.
- Kagoshima Miso Yaki Pork @ $11.50
Skilfully carved pork lion slices are impeccably grilled after being marinating in miso sauce. Each piece features tender and flavoursome lean meat coupled with just the right amount of fat for a buttery finish. The sweet miso complements the flavour of the meat perfectly.
- Kagoshima Pork Hamburger @ $8
Each pork patty is a dense 130g of finely ground Kagoshima pork loin, mixed with finely chopped onions, carrots and a balanced sprinkling of salt & pepper. The hamburger steak was prized for juiciness, rich flavour and tenderness. Accompany with a traditional Okonomiyaki sauce with a hint of sake for extra oomph. The sweet and salty sauce may be a tad heavy on its own, but it sure go well with a bowl of rice!
- Salt & Red Bean Ice Cream @ $3.40
The milky vanilla ice cream was loaded with large valvety red beans, along with slight hint of saltiness. This is somehow new to me, very unique indeed.
