Aren't you just love summer? Not.... Born, raise and live in a all summer country, summer is no longer something I look forward to. Not like in some 4 season region, summer is the warmest period in the year, everyone is so active enjoying all the summer activity, sun bathing, kayaking, surfing, etc. As for me, I only concern about what menu is in season. *drool* Since last rice burger review, Sushi King is having another round of review from July to August during this summer period, featuring various street food that appear in Japanese Summer festival.
Spicy Salmon Nigiri - RM5.00 per plate
Salmon lovers would definitely not want to miss this one. Sushi King’s spicy salmon nigiri adds hint of local taste of spicy chilli flakes on top of fresh raw salmon slices. The spicy salmon nigiri gives that extra kick of spiciness that will make you want more. This seasonal item is priced at RM5.00 per plate.
This is a must have and I highly recommend it. Usually we have sushi with wasabi, but now this oily-ish, sambal-ish, spicy-ish chili topping is a really good match with salmon. This chili is very Asean, I believe the chili is very good even on it's own.
Beef/Chicken Tonpei Yaki - RM9.90 each
Tonpei Yaki is a very popular dish in Japan consisting of shredded cabbage, crunchy fritters wrapped and garnished with delicious okonomi sauce and mayonnaise to send your taste buds on an adventure. Sushi King offers two types of tonpei yaki according to preference. Fans of beef can opt for the beef tonpei yaki, made with delicious pan fried succulent beef with onions while poultry fans may prefer the chicken tonpei yaki which is made with juicy chicken that has been grilled to perfection. This is a definite must-try as it is a seasonal item and only costs you RM9.90 each!
This is a bit weird for me. Those Tonperi yaki I had, the filling is cooked wiht the eggs, not wrap around by the thin egg slice. As a result, fillings are failing everywhere when I pick 'em up.
Takoyaki Tenpura - RM6.90
Take your takoyaki experience to another level with tenpura takoyaki! Breaded with tenpura batter, the Takoyaki Tenpura gives that nice outer crunch before you bite into the delicious savoury goodness of the deep fried octopus ball. Topped with okonomi sauce and mayonnaise, the taste and texture will send you to gourmet delight. The Takoyaki Tenpura is a seasonal item priced at only RM6.90.
You may have takoyaki before (there are everywhere duh...) but have you tried tempura style? crunchy on the outside, soft and mushy on the inside. yum yum ^_^
Spicy Edamame - RM4.00 per plate
An all-time favourite – edamame, takes a twist this season. Boiled to perfection, the edamame is tossed with spicy chilli flakes, giving it delicious, fragrant flavour that will send your taste buds kicking. The Spicy Edamame is priced at RM4.00 per plate.
Edamame beans is a very common snack in Japan. But how about spicy Edamame in chili flakes? The spiciness is medium level, might be slightly too hot for someone but it's only decent for me. Well, at least I wouldn't appreciate it to be too hot as it will cover the naturally sweetness of the beans. One of the must try as well.
Unagi lovers, behold the special Unagi Nigiri offer! Rice topped with delicious sliced eel, the Unagi Nigiri will be offered at only RM5 this season compared to the original price which is RM6!
I am not a big fan of Unagi, but this one is really cheap. Taste wise, meh...
Pumpkin Tenpura - RM5.00
The Pumpkin Tenpura made its first appearance in May and is here to stay for a longer period. Battered pumpkin slices deep fried to perfection, the Pumpkin Tenpura is definitely the choice for you if you’re looking for a tasty crunch. The Pumpkin Tenpura is a seasonal item priced at RM5.00.
If you haven't try their last round of rice promo, you must have miss this awesome fries like tempura. Once you hooked, you will never halt.
Kushiage Moriawase - RM11.90
A common feature in the street food list, the Kushiage Moriawase features 5 types of Japanese skewers that are deep fried to perfection. Enjoy Japanese style deep fried skewered prawn, scallop, chicken nugget, mushroom and long beans all at one go! To top it off, the skewers are served with delicious okonomi sauce to tantalise your taste buds. Kushiage Moriawase is a seasonal item priced at RM11.90.
I generate have less preference towards this dish. The fried product is too hard and the sauce taste funny. Okonomiyaki sauce suppose to taste sweet but this one is slightly more to the salty side.
Kushiage Bento - RM16.90
For those on the go and need a complete meal, take the Kushiage Bento along! Consisting of deep fried salmon steak and Japanese style deep fried skewered prawn, scallop, chicken nugget, mushroom and long beans, served with okonomi sauce, this bento box will definitely fill your tummy with deep fried goodness. The Kushiage Bento is a seasonal item, priced at RM16.90.
Chicken Yaki Udon - RM13.90 per plate
Udon fans will look forward to the Chicken Yaki Udon. This Japanese wheat noodles is fried together in delicious okonomi sauce and mixed vegetables, topped off with deep fried chicken nuggets to score a perfect meal. The Chicken Yaki Udon is priced at RM13.90 per plate.
Ramune - RM6.90 each
Seal the meal with the fizzy Ramune, a popular carbonated drink from Japan. This thirst-quencher is only available this period, priced at RM6.90 each.
Japanese kid favorite drink. A marble is block at the opening of the bottle to prevent the gases from emitting too fast and to prevent the drink to pour out too much at a time.
For this promo period, if you spend more than RM80 in a single recipe, you will get a Sushi King fan featuring Matsuri.
SO what are you waiting for? Faster go to your nearest Sushi King to try them all!
