The original outlet is at Jubilee Square, Ang Mo Kio Ave 8. The menu looks good, & I decided to give a good friend a birthday treat there.
THese are the dishes we tried :
Kodai sashimi $32
Had originally wanted swordfish sashimi, as both of us love the firm, rich & buttery taste. The chef however recommended Kodai, a small japanese snapper, saying that it was very fresh, very good, just arrived from Japan, & after the sashimi, he would male soup, FOC, with the bones.
So, instead of the run-of-mill sashimi, we agreed to his suggestion.
The whole platter was so nicely carved & presented, with flowers, rosette sashimi + cavier.
The flesh is mildly sweet. Not really fantastic. We would still have preferred the richer swordfish sashimi.
Yasai Sarada $4.80
This mixed vegetable salad is a good appetiser, with sesame dressing.
Wagyu Tataki $26.80
The wagyu beef is said to be from Kagoshima. Nicey done, lightly grilled on the outside & still rare in the inside.
Wagyu Don $24.80
I didn't enjoy this at all, as the don is too sweet. There was just a few pieces of the Kagoshima wagyu. For Wagyu beef lovers, I think a better choice will be to order the wagyu tataki & savour on it's own, or go with just plain rice.
Sanshoku Dragon Roll $14.80
This is fried king prawn reverse roll with avocado & mango, topped with flying fish roe. Very nicely presented. You get a nice crunch from the fried prawn when biting into the sushi roll.
Ikura Chawan mushi $7.80
Instead of the usual plain chawanmushi, we tried this one, which is topped with salmon roe. Chawanmushi is smooth.
Complimentary Fish Soup
This was made from the Kodai bones. The broth, with it's dashi stock, is clean & refreshing. It is good that Kinsa Sushi made use of the bones & made a soup pot, FOC, as some other restaurants don't.
We were also served 2 other complimentary dishes :
- a tuna-daikon side dish, while waiting for our food
- a plate of 2 wedges of oranges, for dessert.
This is a restaurant that I'll go back again.
