Mikan

Mikan: Round Two. Earlier entry: April 5.

Sashimi platter, featuring amaebi, tai & tako. Mikan lets customers customize their sashimi selection, choosing only the fish & seafood that they want (for a fixed price). Thankfully, everything we ordered for this tasted irreproachable.

Jumbo ebi tempura. Some of the most massive prawns around, seemingly more than a foot long. Insanely addictive too, with sweet, succulent flesh coated in light, crunchy batter.

Avocado maki. Sticky rice, creamy avocado, crisp seaweed _ a can't-fail combo.

Seafood croquette. Served fresh and steaming-hot; excellent for snacking.

Comfort food: tender, flavorsome beef cheeks in rich, thick Japanese curry.

Fish broth. The chunks of (unidentifiable) fish were bony, but the soup tasted healthy.

Oyster Bay Sauvignon Blanc.

Pinot Noir. Red, red wine, stay close to meeeeeeee....

  1. Wow. Foot long tempura. That's new to me. Only ever heard of foot long sausage before. :P

  2. Baby sumo: heheh, but this one should be healthier at least, since it's pure prawn (versus processed meat in the sausage). As long as it isn't a mutant prawn though! :D

  6. Ooh, that's a first for me - okra as garnishing for Japanese curry. Methinks it'll taste even better in the curry itself? Hehe.
