Numazu Uogashizushi, 100AM
Another sushi shop has opened up and this time at 100AM under the new Itadakimasu cluster of restaurants by the Parco Group. According to Parco, Numazu Uogashizushi (#03-K1, 100AM, 100 Tras Street) is one of the few sushi restaurants to have coveted auction rights in Numazu fish market located at Numazu Port for premium quality seafood that will be flown to Singapore directly from the market. Hmmm....really? This place looks middling level for sushi. I'm not quite feeling the premium quality.
Here's a maguro set and some random aburi items which we got. The tuna based set wasn't as expensive as the one we previously had from Tsukiji Sushi Takewaka; featured more generous portions of fish, knife work with little finesse and what appeared to be quite amateurish sushi making. I thought the chutoro nigiri that came in the set were barely not-akami. The accompanying chawanmushi was quite nice, but the kanijiru was actually pretty bad. The crab added nothing to the flavour of the soup and the meat was mushy and fishy in a bad way.
Those aburi nigiri items were decent. Actually, those ebi and hotate were pretty good. I suppose this shop looks like it would be fine for some not so serious/traditionalist kind of sushi. For some reasons, this place reminded me of Ryoshi Sushi Ikeikemaru.
