Upon entering ENJU on the 1st floor, there was Origami everywhere.
No kidding! Damn, the only Origami folding I’m actually good at is *hides* the aeroplane.
The interior was pretty clean-cut and neat. It still bears the elements of the typical Japanese culture but had lots of modern influence in its designs. Anyway, there’s a side table where you peeps can actually see the chefs busy with your Sushi.
I crept into the preparation area with the rest of them.
The appetizer of this Ladies’ Set Dinner kicked-off with Deep Fried Potato. Hmm.. sometimes, tiny portions has the power to make your appetite linger even longer. This was crispy on the outside but really warm and fluffy on the inside.
The Hiyashi Somen (noodles) reduced us to very silly moments. We were actually supposed to dip the noodles in the Shoyu sauce little by litte with a chopstick ffs! Dating all the way back to my childhood times, I suck at chopsticks. So ya know what we did?
We poured the bowl of Shoyu sauce into the noodles and slurped away like no one’s watching. But the distinctiveness of Hiyashi Somen is that the noodles were really fine and glided down our throats really smoothly.
Hardly ever a need to bite to begin with!
Then, there was obviously Chawan Mushi, the really popular steamed egg with tiny slices of mushroom in it. I believe this dish requires no further introduction? 🙂 Anyways, this is one that I can never miss whenever I step into ANY Jap restaurant. Warm and frothy Miso soup was served too.
Sushi Moriawase was the assorted handmade sushi. I can safely say that this is a really pretty dish to look at. It looked like it jumped right outta a cartoon! Lots of color, very vibrant and quirky!
Let’s have a closer look, shall we? 🙂
The Sashimi was to die for. It was extremely fresh and the seaweed was still crispy to the core! Unlike some pre-done slices of salmon and soggy seaweed that you usually find elsewhere. *cough*
but I’m pretty darn sure you readers are smart to know which one
I especially requested for Unagi. My all-time favorite ingredient.
And whilst he was making the handroll maki with an insane mix of ingredients of my liking, I then asked him :
Only to have him reply with such cheeky wit :
Hmm. Honestly if I could, I would name it :
And that’s not all! The waitress brought over something very colourful and tropical looking. What could that be?
The Apple Sorbet & I
Don’t ask me why wasn’t I looking in the right direction,
‘cos I’ve no clue either.
Pretty darn refreshing!
Ahh, aren’t they just perfect sweetness to wrap up our set meal? We loved it to the very core! Oh, before I forget, the outer rind/skin of the sorbets can actually be eaten. Duh, it’s a real fruit 🙂
It’s not the end yet!
you would grow worms in your brain.
