Sushiro in December


It's been a few months since we've hit Sushiro. While it can be fun to try some the items they've introduced into the menu which we haven't tried before, there's also us being us sticking to what we liked from them. 

Sushiro, ginger hiyashiame juice

One of the newer item their hiyashiame which was flavoured with cinnamon powder. This was sweet and pleasant from the combination of cinnamon and ginger.

Sushiro, madara shirako gunkan

There's a madara shirako gunkan. No idea why madara is in the name but this was a better one than the shirako gunkan they had last year. The ingredients were mostly the same. This one had more shirako.

Sushiro, stacked snow crab nigiri

The stacked snow crab nigiri looked better in pictures. It's okay. Not the better tasting snow crab out there since you do get what you will be paying for.

Sushiro, scallop nigiri

Their scallop sushi is generally not bad. Applies for this one with more scallops and ikura.......

Sushiro, scallop nigiri

......and the one which have larger scallops.

Sushiro, ankimo gunkan

This ankimo gunkan also looked nicer than the one we got from last year.

Sushiro, chutoro nigiri

We had chutoro. Not the better one out there but it's sometimes the luck of the draw for a conveyor belt sushi joint like this.

Sushiro, marinated sesame snapper nigiri

Some sesame marinated snapper nigiri. Unusual flavour profile for a sushi which we haven't had before from the sesame.

Sushiro, big red shrimp nigiri

The nigiri with the big red prawns are one of those good ones to pick.

Sushiro, ikura gunkan

The other no brainer is the gunkan overflowing with ikura.

Sushiro, tuna mayo gunkan

Not traditional but there's an appeal to tuna mayo.

Sushiro, whole spear squid nigiri

Tried their whole (yari ika) spear squid nigiri. Are these like babies? Tasted much like the regular squid sushi except for the mouthfeel. Wished they hadn't decided that there was a need to include that tiny dollop of ginger paste.

Sushiro, tamagoyaki nigiri

I liked that their tamago yaki was sweet and chilled. 

Sushiro, albacore tuna

Albacore tuna was tender.

Sushiro, chilled chawanmushi

Chilled chawanmushi with dashi jelly was unexpectedly refreshing. There's a scallop and shrimp in it.

Sushiro, shirako mazesoba
Sushiro, shirako mazesoba

The noodle item we hadn't tried before was their shirasu mazesoba. This looked better in real life than the pictures on the menu. There was a light sauce which I could describe as savoury and that was all that accompanied the shirasu and negi for the noodles. Nothing unnecessarily complicated. I'd eat this again.

Sushiro, albacore tuna nigiri

Amaebi not so sweet.

Sushiro, tai nigiri

Tai looked dry-ish. 

Sushiro, Hattendo earl grey pudding

The Earl Grey pudding from Hattendo was nice and creamy. Really creamy.

Sushiro, Hattendo sweet potato cream bun

They also had these sweet potato cream buns from Hattendo which were also nice. There was milky sweet potato flavour in the creamy filling.
