Spicy Delights @ Sakae September Theme

Every month Sakae Sushi will come out with an interesting theme, which consists of a few side dishes to surprise their regular patrons. If you remember, in July they have the Seafood theme follow by Oyster theme in August. As for this month, those of you who have visited Sakae would have already tried their Spicy September dishes where you can find Korea kimchi, Japanese curry, green chili pepper and etc.

Out of the 5 spicy dishes for this month we have tried two, above is this “Shishito Mentai Zukushi” where the halve green chili pepper is topped with mentai and wrapped with nigiri sushi. Love the hint of spiciness from the chili and it blends well with the wrap too, this is indeed an interesting dish that reminds us of our local stuffed "Yong Tau Foo".

Was quite disappointed with this “Fire Maki” firstly on its outlook which is so different from their menu where it there are some flames over the roll which makes it look so delicious. Secondly instead of that kind of “fire” or rather spicy taste, this roll was rather a bit salty due to the Kimchi and the nori sheet that is wrapped in it taste so chewy and elastic which spoilt the overall taste of this maki.

Ebi Fry is one of the ala carte item found under the Agemono category. To be honest this is the first time we tried Sakae’s Ebi Fry as we usually ordered either their Ebi Tempura or Tempura Moriawase. Surprisingly this Ebi Fry is just as good with its crispy and crunchy texture.

From their menu, we also spot a great lunch deal at S$20.99 for this “Deluxe Unagi Set” that comes with salad as starter, stir-fried mixed vegetables and prawn, miso soup and rice, Tofu and Venison, Unagi slices cooked with egg and served in foil. Overall this is a steal price with some many items in a set that we think it worth the price for lunch treat. Moreover their venison tastes rather tender, which is not too tough or overcooked when bite too.

Now we are already excited to look forward to their October theme, wonder what dishes will they come out with to seduce the taste bud of their patrons.
