So Nice It's Rice! Sushi King Rice Burger

If I say Sushi King is the pioneer of Japanese food franchise in Malaysia, it's really not exaggerating. Since 1995, Sushi Kin Sdn. Bhd has introduce sushi on Kaiten (conveyor belt) through Sushi King. 10 years ago, if you feel like you want to have some Japanese food, the only place you will want to go is Sushi King. However, in recent year, Japanese franchise pops out like mushroom after the rain. Not many of these franchise survive for a couple of years but Sushi King manage to keep still standing in every major Malls. Although Sushi King is not my only choice anymore, I do appreciate their effort to always break thought. There was a major hit of Rice burger in a Japanese burger franchise in our neighbor country. I have tried it twice in Thailand and I was not impressed AT ALL. To put it in another word, I hate it. When Sushi King approach me on their rice burger, I frowned a little. I always give everything/one a second chance (that's why I tried the famous, hyped rice burger in difference branch, twice to prove that these burger has a reason to get it's hype), so I know I shouldn't say no to them w/o actually trying their rice burger just because I had bad experience with other rice burgers.

Sushi King's ideology of " A healthy Way to Satisfy Your Cravings" even listed the Calories of their burgers on each serving. Though I have to say their display picture are REALLY for illustration purpose only. The real food doesn't come too near to what was photographed.

Chicken Katsu Rice Burger (473 Kcal)

Chicken Katsu takes a twist, being served in a rice burger. Enjoy the crunch from the deep fried breaded chicken fillet with a hint of spice, topped with lettuce and mayonnaise to seal the note. The Chicken Katsu Rice Burger is also a regular item in the menu, priced at RM6 per serving.

From the look, I was expecting some tonkatsu like texture. Indeed, but just on the outside. It really isn't pork, so can't expect to be firm like pork. The mixture of mayo is quite a popular combination, but when it matches with rice, it's not something  I am used to. 

Yakiniku Rice Burger (303 Kcal)

If you’re a fan of beef, the Yakiniku rice burger is a definite must try! This rice burger is made with succulent pan fried beef, accompanied by fresh lettuce and mayonnaise to perfect the taste. The Yakiniku Rice Burger is an ongoing feature in the menu, priced at RM7 per serving.

I was very delighted when I saw the display picture, but when I get the real burger, I was like meh.....that's not the same burger :( why it has become so flat? Although I am not impressed but the look, I do want to compliment it's beef's quality. It's texture is still juicythought it was pan fried. The sauce has lifted the flavor quite a bit and I have to repeat I am really impressed (except for it's look of course), just hope that there are more beef on it.... but heck RM 7 for a beef burger? Where else can you find?

Salmon Wasabi Rice Burger (387 Kcal)

The all-time favourite fish is definitely salmon. Get the extra kick with the Salmon Wasabi Rice Burger which is filled with juicy flame-grilled salmon belly, topped with wasabi and spicy sauce. The Salmon Wasabi Rice Burger is a seasonal item, priced at RM9 per serving.

When it was announce, RM 9 for a Salmon burger, I was skeptical. When I see that it's just barely 2-3 thin slice of sashimi Salmon, then I believed it's true. If you are a wasabi lover, you MUST try this.

The fresh crunchy wasabi stem, how many of you have tried the real wasabi stem, not the paste? If you are not aware, the crunchy stem camouflage itself on the first bite. When I was mid of enjoying some crunchy vegie then the heat sensation started to kicks-in, in a fraction of a second, I want to flush away those "vegie". The experience is so Syok that I keep stuffing myself with the burger and drinking tea in between.

Saba Teriyaki Rice Burger (492Kcal)

Saba lovers, meet the the mouth watering Saba Teriyaki Rice Burger! Sweet, juicy and grilled to perfection, savour the delightul blend of mackerel with teriyaki sauce on delicious rice patties, accompanied with lettuce and teriyaki sauce. Every bite will definitely make you ask for more. The Saba Teriyaki Rice Burger is a seasonal item, priced at RM10 per serving.

Although the real saba filling is not as big as show in the picture, but it's still very thick. The only regret is the saba is very dry, luckily it's was patch up by the glaze.

Salmon Rice Burger (322Kcal)

For those who prefer cooked salmon, the Salmon Rice Burger is definitely made for you. Made with a succulent piece of salmon steak, accompanied with fresh lettuce and a tinge of spicy item, priced at RM8 per serving.

Salmon is within expectation, No complain.

If you think a small burger will not be enough for a meal, you can upgrade it to a rice burger set consist of Pumpkin Tempura and miso soup with an additional RM6.

The pumpkin tempura and miso soup are also available for a’la carte order at RM5 and RM3 respectively.

Miso soup is as good as always. The pumpkin tempura is a bit unusual. It's cut up like usual potato fries diped into tempura batter and fired till golden. It's good on this own, but being the anal one, I was a bit upset that I didn't have tempura soup and grated radish for my tempura. After I asked them about it, they gladly provide it FOC. They explain that they don't server the tempura dipping sauce because it was prepared to be eat it on it's own like fries. And yes, if you want, you can request too for free.

Addiction to look good, P/S: I am not pregnant.

There were once rumors spreading among my friend, saying I am pregnant, thanks to the special "someone" who say he kena TOTO. My confession: No, I am not. I am just fat *cry uncontrollably on the corner*
As a food blogger/critic, controlling myself to eat is not my habit. I do try to excise a bit, but not really for the purpose to looking good.  My philosophy is exercise to eat more.

However, due to the reason above, it does struck me hard that and I have going overboard lately. My previous injury on my back that cause a fracture bone under my pelvis has really gave me trouble in being active. I can't sit too long, I can't stand too long. Even if I run on a treadmill, my back can't let me run more than 3 km, don't to mention plank or sit up. It will  literally take my life! The more discomfort I goes through, the less I move. All these laziness over the years has stored some fats on my belly which even exercise couldn't reverse the effect. When Solta medical came to me for Liposonix, I can see lights falling onto me while angles singing around *flapping arms like wings*

At first, I thought Liposonix was liposuction, which they put you to anesthetic then suck/pipe out the lipid from you body. I was scared but when I read more, I found out that liposonix is quite different. Contradict to liposuction, liposonix procedure is not invasive. You can use liposonix on area that have more than an inch of fats. In another word, Liposonix is just the best alternative for people, men or women to rectify portion of their body w/o going to surgery.

Here is a website explaining what is Liposonix
Liposonix uses  High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) to cause the death of fat cells. So you wouldn't see the result immediately but those fat cells are going to flush out of your body in a few weeks. Just make sure you drink enough of water!

However, Liposonix is not a vastly available technology in Malaysia. Solta Medical introduce me to one of the clinic that provide the Liposonix procedure.

A bit about Nara medispa:

*note that Menara BRDB is just behind BSC (Bangsar Shopping Center) but the car park is merged, you need to come out from BSC, walk pass the build to another. You can't reach BRDB straight from the parking. *

Although it's hard to locate Nara Medispa, but once you found, you are like looking on a long lost precious gem. A quick look of Nara medispa just straight away calms you down and feel ZEN *Ohm***********

Last few picture of the lumpy belly before the procedure. No, I didn't purposely strip off to take a picture. I was for the beautician to record my measurement before we start the procedure.

My lliac crest height is 100cm with waist circumference about 86cm.

After the belly farewell ceremony, let take a quick look on my procedure.

This is what a Liposonix machine looks like. Doesn't look very dreadful isn't it? Not like some metal pipes or steam machines like we saw in most weight lost documentary.

The beautician has to first mark the area that she is treating, so she can time how much time each area was treated and so no overlapping. Also spraying water on the skin will help act as a medium to deliver the ultrasound better.

Each pass last for 1 minute. Each area can goes up to 5 pass depends on the energy level of the procedure. If you can endure the higher energy ultrasound, it may only need 3 pass. 

Other than the beautician, the Doctor was me in the room most of the time to check on my condition. In this picture, we can't really see her face, but she is like the most beautiful Doctor I even see in my life.

Dr. Serina Abdul Latif

My experience on the Liposinix treatment you ask? It was pretty ok. It's s abit discomfort when the handle was near to my pelvis bone. You may tell the Dr. or the beautician and they can switch the setting so that no ultra sound is propagate to the bone area. My belly develop a bit redness during the treatment but after the redness reduced, my belly become firmer smoother.

Like the Doctor suggested, I wore tight outfit on my belly after the treatment. Not sure it's because of my tight outfit or the procedure, my lower abdomen flushes blue-black that fades away after 1 week.

It has been 4 week since my liposonix treatment. I am practicing a healthier lifestyle with periodic exercise and enough of water. Although I did not cut down my food consumption, but I do consciously eat less fat when I am not doing food review. I will be going back in 2-3 weeks for a check-up. Wish me the best, hopefully my the treatment has help me to loose my belly and not to get mistaken as pregnant mom!
