Zuke Kajiki/ Marinated White Tuna with Wasabi-Mayo Sauce (腌制白鲔鱼搭芥末-美乃酱) and Ika Ebiko, raw Squid with Prawn Roes.

Zuke Kajiki/ Marinated White Tuna with Wasabi-Mayo Sauce. Fresh tuna was marinated for more then 12 hour for maximum flavour. Then drenched with fresh wasabi mayo sauce to bring out it natural sweetness and a hint of background kick. Simple yet complicated dish.

Ika ebiko was on of my favorite starter. Another simple dish that blow your mind. Fresh and sweet raw Squid coated with tiny little boom of flavors. Raw rocket give it a hint of bitterness to round up the whole dish. Wuh, this is what i called small dish with giant flavor. 

Next to come was Sashimi (刺身生鱼片).

Their were Tako/ Octopus Sashimi, Aka Gai/ Ark Clam Sashimi, Salmon and Salmon Belly Sashimi.

Eyuzu Maki/ Crispy Soft Shell Crab Sushi Maki (香酥软壳蟹寿司卷). Simple yet flavorful dish presented to me.

Kaki Motayaki/ Gratinated Oysters (日式焗蚝). Love it! all the cheeses and freshness of the oysters. Yum with a hints of lemon juice. 

Teppanyaki Gyu Maki/ Teppanyaki Grilled Beef Striploin Roll with Enoki Mushrooms and Green Onions (铁板烤牛柳金针菇与大葱). For beef lover this was one of the dish to die for :)

Chawan Mushi (茶碗蒸), pack with ingredient such as chicken, crab stick, shrimp, ginkgo and spring onion. The texture was the main attraction, wobbly and velvety smooth steam egg.    

Ninniku Yaki Meshi/ Garlic Fried Rice (日式蒜香炒饭). Great Japanese rice with well coated with flavor and not over cooked fried garlic. This was the best garlic fried rice i had so far. Most of the places over fried their garlic and leave bitter charcoal garlic.This was perfect.

Sweet ending with Oshiroko/ Red Bean Stew with Mochi (浓香红豆甜汤). Cooked for 8 hours with Yuzu, Japanese red bean and sugar. The stew was perfect.
