Seeking Solace in Penang – Azuma Japanese Restaurant @ Queensbay MallApril 1, 2009 | 4,601 views
Very nicely presented, scoring top marks in aesthetic values (except for one failed salmon mayo roll) … Tastewise?
Of course, we were in Sushi mode that evening, so we cancelled the other orders instead. The platter of mixed sushi was intimidating, as each sushi was not of bite-sized/dainty proportion, but instead rather filling. To the point of feeling rather bloated by the 5th of 6th piece. The platter includes prawn, salmon, tuna, prawn roe, eel, tuna mayo in beancurd skin, and salmon mayo roll.
All were fresh, the fish firm and sweet, while the cooked items scored as well. Except the ebikko (shrimp roe) which was a little salty. The maguro (tuna) was deliciously thick and succulent, while the tako? (octopus)’s texture was bouncy, and firm.
