Sakae Feast

Last week, I organised a simple "Japanese Cuisine Dinner" for to share with our weekly cell group members. Instead of the usual home fellowship session, we held a short and simple one at a Sakae sushi outlet near our area. These are some of the foods that 14 of us ordered during the dining/fellowship session.

While everyone was busying flipping through the menu and thinking of what to order, I was attracted to their August Oyster Theme promotion. From the menu, I ordered this "Golden Oyster Maki" which is shown above. This comes with two deep-fried breaded crispy oyster resting on top of the maki and top with some fish roe and most of us love this new item and it's attractive presentation too.

As some of the cell group members rarely tried any Japanese Cuisine so I have to take the lead to order most of the dishes for them. To begin with any main course sushi, I am sure they will prefer something warm and smooth like Chuwanmushi which most of us prefer. Normally, my choice is always surrounded with " Sakae Chuwanmushi" but I would still prefer their Pumpkin Chawanmushi which is already no longer in their menu list.

For quick bite before the Teppanyaki sets are ready to be served, we have some assorted Temaki. These two are "Ebi Tempura" and "Unagi".

Soft Shell Crab and Salmon Mango Temaki.

"Golden Crispy Oyster" is also one of the item under the August Oyster Theme menu. Instead of Oyster and rice maki like the previous one above Gold Crispy served together with yummy deep-fried mashed potato Patty instead of rice.

Esther, together with her kids and helper ordered two bowls of the Teriyaki Chicken Ramen to share among themselves.

While Monica prefer this Teriyaki Chicken and Hotate Mentaiyaki Bento which served with rice and miso soup. This set comes with four yummy baked cheesy scallop other than the teriyaki chicken.

Since the outlet we are in also provides Teppanyaki menu, I decided to order a few sets for them to try too. And the way the teppanyaki chef prepares the dishes really captured some of the kids attention too.

I ordered two premium seafood sets and one premium beef set which all comes with stir-fried assorted vegetables, rice and miso soup. Most of us loves this stir-fried bean spouts with mushrooms which is just nicely done and not over fried.

Premium Seafood Set consists of Prawn, Cuttlefish and Bamboo Clam.

While Premium Beef Set consists of Beef, Foie Gras (made of the liver of a duck or goose) and Half Shell Scallop. Although we ordered medium rare for the beef but when served we find that the beef cubes are rather too tough to bite.

The half shell scallop is infused with lovely stir-fried garlic which make it so delicious to go with either steam rice or their special garlic rice.

Everyone enjoys themselives happily with the yummy sakae dishes and we are too full to have any dessert by the end of the meal. Other than Ramen, Hand Maki, Chuwanmushi, Teppanyaki sets, we also have a few plates of their fresh Salmon Sashimi. Posted by Picasa
