Food quality does not diverge into a less formidable range, though one can ponder the differences between authentic Japanese cuisine and its highly popular Korean interpretation.
The regular list of offerings were found in the menu, but a separate list of seasonal items could be spotted towards the back of the restaurant in both Kanji and English.
Sushi Lunch A included six pieces of assorted nigiri, three Tekka (tuna cube) Rolls, and three Kappa (cucumber) Rolls; the set was accompanied with miso soup as well as a small side salad.
However, with an impeccably aromatic sesame dressing, Miyabi truly had me impressed. Despite that shredded cabbage had largely replaced iceberg lettuce, I couldn't help but return to the salad between bites of sushi to taste more of the dressing. Its presence was subtle in visual terms, yet contributed tremendous impact to the overall depth of the included side.
Additional points were tacked on for the neat placement of cucumber slices.
I found it amusing that the ends of the nori sheet barely met on the Tekka and Kappa rolls; the shape of the roll was maintained, though the reduction in length caused cohesive forces to weaken, making them more challenging to pick up.
I've experienced my fair share of inauthentic Japanese curry dishes, which have led me to set the bar low for future ordeals. But, yet again, my expectations were exceeded with the Pork Cutlet Curry.
At precisely the ideal consistency, it covered the underlying rice in a blanket of savouriness without causing sogginess to form on the underside of the tonkatsu strips, keeping them crisp and enjoyable. It was a revolutionary dish that not only compensated for the numerous poorly-crafted dishes in the past, but also re-instated my faith in housemade Japanese curry formulas.
Is this a vein? I found myself wondering as a particularly tough strand was uncovered.
The specimen did not dissolve as pictured. Overall, the toro was indeed fatty - and also significantly satiating - but without the exclusive intensity my tastebuds had yearned for
Presentation points were allocated towards each item, for there was not a single item that arrived in awkward placement nor atop a grimy dish (looking at you, Momo San).
