I have a very great Saturday on (23rd July 2014) and it is my honor to be invited by Hungry Go Where (HGW) and Sakae Sushi to celebrate Sakae Sushi new menu launch in One Utama Shopping Centre. 

Upon my arrival, I have been warm welcome by Sakae Marketing Manager, Ms. June and her team. And I would like to thank you Ms. Yi Ling from HGW for this food review gathering. There are 4 persons being invited and we have greet each other and then we have been lead to a table to be seated.

I have been serving with hot " Honey Jujube Genmai Tea " (you can choose Hot / Cold), the taste is sweet and refreshing. Then Ms. June started to have a short introduction for Sakae Sushi.

After the introduction, the first menu, " Sashimi Mori Zen " (7 kinds) has been ready for my tasting. The outlook is mouthwatering and it has variety sashimi which I can taste. All is fresh and juicy, I especially like the ocean-fresh salmon and tuna.

Next, we will taste " Wafu Salad ". It consists of avocado, lotus root, raisin and vegetables with wafu dressing. The Wafu Salad shine the Sakae Sushi ‘farm to table’ philosophy, the vegetable it is so fresh and taste like just pick from the farm. 

Really feel like wanted to ask June, it's Sakae have it's own vegetable farm to provide all these fresh veges? ^_^

We have a short chit chat time before serving the next menu. During the sharing, I heard my stomach is roaring while we discuss about the nice foods topic. The next meal is Salmon Festival, “ Aburi Salmon Maki ” and “ Salmon Zukushi ”. This is my first time in my life that I can taste all kind of Salmon sushi, It's really " OISHII !!!  I have to say sorry to my “weight control program” as I have to stop for 1 day. All the sushi is well organize and it show us the love of the Sushi Shifu (the sushi rice is added with Vitamin E oil which it's good for our skin and also good for immune system). Aligato and Gambate Master.

After taste all the Salmon plate, the next menu is “ Yaki Corn Tempura ” is a juicy grilled corn with tempura. It is very special which you hardly found at another sushi bar. I enjoy the crispy and crunchy bite feel.

I love all the previously serve foods but next menu " Hotate Mentaiyaki " is today challenge for me. I seldom eat scallops but surprisingly it's no fishy and the combination grilled scallops with creamy codfish roe mayonnaise made the taste evolve to another level. Of course, one is enough for me. The rest I give it to my partner KeaNu boy who really scallops/Sushi big fans.

Until now, I have been tasted 6 menu and June told us there are more to come. I am so impressive with the quality foods that provide to us. I started to feel my stomach is abit full but I told myself, the best foods was continuous coming soon. So, I must keep on tasting the next menu and guess what. “ Goma Soft Shell Crab Cha Soba ” is my favorite food of the day. The buckwheat noodle with sesame dressing is so delicious plus the crispy soft shell crab which has fire up my desire for more. Pity KeaNu boy, I have take all his Soba.

Coming up next is " Smoked Kamo Nabe ", tantalising hotpot combination of tender smoked duck with mushrooms and vegetables in clear broth. I like the combination, it's look so tempting hot pot and the smoked duck taste Tender and sweet, I should have ask a bowl of rice to pair with this tasty duck soup .
