I can never get sick of Japanese food but the birthday girl is an even more ardent fan than anyone else I can think of. We decided to check out Tatsu Sushi because it looked like a place that serves authentic Japanese food. In the meantime, you might wanna ask yourself what exactly is authentic Japanese food. ;)
We looked through the menu from the first page to the last quite a few times and couldn’t decide what to get! I don’t remember seeing any pictures and so we randomly chose a few dishes.
Otoshi ($2) is served even if you do not order it, but it is not free. It is a starter also referred to as “tsukidashi”. Otoshi varies depending on the restaurant and season. Common food tends to be served, but you never know what you will get. Our otoshi came in the form of mashed potato with strips of crabmeat and bits of flying fish roe. It was slightly sweet and I liked it.
I don’t remember why we ordered the Unagi Kabayaki ($20) but it probably was just random. :P The sweet soy sauce base had the right amount of sweetness and the unagi was grilled in such a way that its firmness was retained.
While the seaweed was wrapped within the rice for the Tempura Maki ($15), the Kani Maki ($15) had seaweed on its exterior. Personally, I preferred the latter because it was crunchier. :)
The Uramaki ($15) served here is slightly bigger in size. For those who prefer to eat it whole in one mouthful, you really gotta have a big mouth :P One thing I like about the sushi here is that the rice is not scattered so when you eat it, it really feels like you are eating something substantial.
Sushi Jyou ($35) features a variety of raw fish on individual slabs of rice and we each had to quickly ‘chope’ the ones that we wanted :P The slices of fish were thick and fresh. But I feel that it is slightly overpriced.
The waitress recommended the Aji Fried ($28) and asked if we wanted to try it. Basically it’s Japanese horse mackeral that is deep fried. Anything that’s deep fried tastes the same to me. We really shouldn’t have ordered this. Two of my friends liked it though.
Tatsu Sushi certainly serves quality sushi but given that kinda price, I think I would try out some other Japanese restaurants in future.
Total bill was $160 after GST.
