HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
I hope it is not too late yet. It was a busy day yesterday as I did not have the day off. However, I started the day earlier and had breakfast with Sister at Jing Chew. Went back to work and parents came to pick me up from work later in the evening for family dinner cum Dad’s birthday celebration at Kaizen Sushi Waterfront. We ended up over ordering and could not finish up the dishes which only arrived towards the end of the meal.
Anyways, this is a pictures’ loaded blog entry. So, please do not read this if you are feeling hungry at the moment as I will not be responsible for making you even hungrier. LOL!
Wakame Miso Soup | B$1.80
Gosh! It took me so many attempts to get this shot and this is not even the best one yet. My camera was unable to focus on the soup due to the “fumes” coming out from the soup.
Chuka Wakame | B$2.70
Kabocha Ni | B$4.50
For an approximate 8 cube sized pumpkin, this sure was steeply priced but it was good. The pumpkin was soft and sweet. It was soft to the extent that the skin could be eaten as well. However, the teriyaki sauce was rather too sweet for my liking though. Maybe they could tone down the teriyaki sauce since pumpkin is naturally sweet?
Nasu Age with Spicy Sauce | B$4.50
This is deep fried eggplants with their homemade spicy sauce. I think it was made with either soy or teriyaki sauce but spicy . It was pretty good but it gets “jelak” after having too much as the eggplants were oily after being deep fried.
Inari Sake Sarada | B$3.60 & Inari Potato Sarada | B$3.60
Agedashi Tofu | B$4.50
Hotate Misoyaki | B$12.60
Sake Maki | B$2.70 & Maguro Maki | B$2.70
As Dad was having cough, there was limitation when it comes to ordering as Mom forbade Dad from having raw salmon but he still had a piece or two though. Who can resist juicy sashmi, right? The waitress recommended us some of their chicken bestselling menu and they were pretty expensive but good.
Chinatown Maki | B$10.80
This was good but I could not help but wonder why was it named as Chinatown Maki. There were chicken pieces inside the sushi rolls and the toppings were either avocado or grilled eel slices. I only had one piece and it was the one with grilled eel topping. The grilled eel was done to perfection. It had the melt in the mouth texture.
Sandwich Sushi Maki | B$10.80
Tatsuta Miso Ramen | B$8.10
We ordered this bowl of noodle for Mom as she likes noodles more than rice to be honest. This was not as good as I remembered. The texture of the noodles was not as springy as before and the soup base tasted slightly spicy.
Salmon Teriyaki (Zen) | B$11.70
As Dad was not allowed to have raw salmon, we ordered him this Zen set which comes with side dishes of coleslaw, pickles, Chawan Mushi, miso soup and sliced fruits. The pricing sounds reasonable to me given the portion.
