Ok….i admit, i am spoilt by Chef Hong. This man took a look at burly me, observed the way i eat and told me that the only possible way for me to truly enjoy sushi is to have a humongous piece with a little rice and finish it in one mouthful.

How right he is……. my expectations are raised so high that no matter where else  i go, i end up feeling disappointed and felt that my money was better spent at his restaurant. Its not for everyone though, my female friends thought its too rough, too “un-glam”. But I love it !!

How huge is huge ? My Sanma sushi has a thumb size ball of rice, topped by the entire left side sanma fillet. Yup, you read it right…the entire fillet !!!

Chef Hong does not do it for everyone as he knows not everyone enjoys eating this way. Have to ask for it (and also pay for it………)

From Sept – Dec, this is the time when most fishes are in season and at their peak with lots of delicious omega 3 (it makes me less guilty than using the word “fats”) 🙂 And its the time when you can sample up to 6 different types of Uni including the famed Sakura Uni that only last for a week. I have been saving my money just for these 3 months.

What am i to do ? Nothing !! Just pop one into the mouth, close your eyes, enjoy the moment and try not to look around showing the face of ecstasy…….
