How is your Chinese New Year holiday? Many people returned to work this week. This new year I ate many yee sang, hoping to get a better job and salary ;)) Two of them are in Japanese restaurant, including Sakae Sushi which I am going to review later.
Those living in KL/Penang should familar with this restaurant . So what is the different between Sakae Sushi and Sushi King? The menu is almost identical but the price is slightly cheaper in Sakae Sushi. It is also one of the Sakae Sushi objectives to let more people to enjoy sushi at affordable price. Also, Sakae Sushi use self-ordering system using monitor attached to each table. However, sometime they are not functioning well and we have to order manually. It also has a teppanyaki corner. Its teppanyaki is generally better than the later one.
Let’s talk something special – Yee Sang, an addition during Chinese New Year. Three of us luckily ordered the small version (RM22.80++) which cater for 1-2 persons. It is quite large considering you are ordering other dishes as well. Originated from China, Yee Sang can be seen in Japanese restaurants nowadays.
In Sakae Sushi, there are 3 colors of sushi plate:
It also has black plate costs at whoppy RM9.90++. The sushi dishes taste good in general. However, some branches do not prepare enough on kaiten during peak period and you have to order it from the system. You can also order sushi set.
Some dishes (e.g. Salmon (Flake) Don (RM9.90++), Seafood Bibinba (RM18.90++)) are quite dried and usually I pour some miso soup inside in order to finish them.
Unfortunately, the ramen is not their specialty and is just average.
The service also can be improved. During peak hour, some items can be missed out. Once I waited 45 minutes for my Teriyaki Chicken Don to arrive.
As a whole, Sakae Sushi provides a better food and price compared to its competitors. The official website is quite informative so you can have a look on their menu.
