Tokyo Kitchen @ Sunway Giza, Kota Damansara

Salmon sushi seizes the orange-hued spotlight for this Omega-3 extravaganza.

Looks deceive: this might look like run-of-the-mill fish-topped rice, but the salmon is rubbed with sea salt (RM4.30+ per piece) for a savory, nearly smoky flavor.

Other variations include salmon sushi with peanut sauce & spring onions ...

... with mayo & green soybeans ...

... with Japanese jelly ...

... & roasted with cucumber & chili powder.

Carb-phobic? Fresh, fleshy salmon fins, with no rice, are also available.

Tokyo Kitchen has two branches, one in Kota Damansara's Sunway Giza & another in Puchong's Setiawalk.

The ambiance here is attractive, with fun flourishes that both catch & please the eye.
