In a blink of an eye, July is coming to an end and we're going to be welcoming August tomorrow. In Japan, Summer Festival is one of their most anticipated culture to enjoy the fireworks, dance and food. Sounds amazing no?
Now, you don't have to travel all the way to the land of rising sun to enjoy Japanese street food because Sushi King is bringing the scrumptious mouth-watering delicacies to Malaysia so everyone can enjoy the gourmet spread offered on streets of Japan this season.
Spicy Edamame (RM4.00)
This season brings a little bit surprise to the dishes. Edamame with spicy chilli flakes, totally gives a kick to your tastebuds that you'll never forget.
If someone would like to give me a year supply of food, I'll choose raw salmon because the freshness of the fish taste so good and sweet. Fresh raw salmon is just perfect BUT adding local taste of spicy chilli flakes on top of it would definitely give you that twist and you'll be craving it for more!
Unagi Nigiri (RM5.00)
Who doesn't love Unagi? It's my second choice after salmon. As usual, that delicious sliced eel is just so juicy and the texture is so smooth. OMG, so goooooood~~
Again, I need to tell you that I super love pumpkin. Deep fried the battered pumpkin slices at the right temperature, serve while it is hot. Goodness, I'm telling you this crunchiness is a dish that couldn't be missed! (Psst, all of us couldn't stop eating it)
This takoyaki is slightly different because because it has the nice crunch on the outer layer before you bite into the savoury goodness of the deep fried octopus ball. Drizzle some okonomi sauce and mayonnaise on top of the takoyaki, the taste has gone up to a higher level.
Kushiage Moriawase (RM11.90)
Kushiage Moriawase features 5 types of Japanese skewers that are deep fried to perfection: prawn, scallop, chicken nugget, mushroom and long beans. Try the scallop! It is so huge man! Not to mention that it tastes really good too! Please do remember to dip them into the okonomi sauce cause it provides enough taste to the skewers.
Bento is something like all-in-one kind of thing. Kushiage Bento consists of deep fried salmon steak and Japanese style deep fried skewered prawn, scallop, chicken nugget, mushroom and long beans. Once again, they're served with okonomi sauce too! With the amount of delicious goodness in this bento, I'm sure your tummy will feel the satisfaction to the max!
Tonpei Yaki is a very popular dish in Japan consisting of the meat, shredded cabbage, crunchy fritters wrapped and garnished with delicious okonomi sauce and mayonnaise. Chicken tonpei yaki is made with grilled juicy chicken. I personally enjoy the second option, beef Tonpei Yaki as the beef was being pan fried so well along with the onions that I'm enjoying it every bite of it.
Chicken Yaki Udon (RM13.90)
This fried Udon is something that you should look forward too because this Japanese wheat noodles is fried together in delicious okonomi sauce, making it such mouth-watering dish. Plus, it is also served with mixed vegetables and deep fried chicken nuggets.
Ramune is really well-known carbonated drink in Japan. They even have the challenge of taking out the marble inside the bottle without breaking the glass. In Sushi King, you get to bring back the marble by twisting the bottle cap. (Don't let them know I'm the one who tell you okay? HAHAHAHA)
And....Ramune is photo taking worthy too!
