Sushi Tei Tropicana City Mall

I was able to savor the tasty dishes of Sushi Tei at Tropicana City Mall branch last weekend.
The outlet located in a strategic location at the ground floor is at the same side as the cinema of Tropicana City Mall.

Japanese food is certainly not new to me but my enhance appreciation for the food came when I visited Japan, particularly sushi. Ever since returning from Japan, my taste for sushi was never the same again.

The outlet has great ambiance with a lot of woodiness to it making a shack-like feel yet elegant and welcoming:

The first dish that we started off with is a sushi called the Volcano Roll:

This unique makimono (rolled sushi) is topped with cream cheese on the top as you can see from the picture above and it's filling in the sushi contains unagi (eel) and cucumber.

Once this started the ball rolling, the serving of the food came rather quick and our table was filled with the many Japanese cuisine. Our dish were mainly comprised of the spring promotion ongoing at Sushi Tei and the next dish is one of item that is in the spring promotion:

It's Sashimi Moriawase 'WAKANA' which contains 5 kinds of different seafood, octopus, salmon, red prawns, scallop and tuna belly. I'm always a lover of salmon sashimi.

Here's our next dish, guess what it is?

It's actually mushrooms, Eringi mushrooms to be exact. This is really tasty to me. The name of the dish is Eringi Batayaki.

Here's a very interesting presentation for the dish:

Sushi in the shape of a heart! This dish is called Maguro Heart Roll. Felt a little bad when I 'broke' the heart in half to eat it. haha. This contains mayo in it.
From a cute looking dish to a dish where anyone who looks at it will know:

It's Aka Ebi Sushi, or in English, Red Prawn sushi.
And here's a dish called Kamaage Shirasu Sushi:

Shirasu are baby sardines that are usually around 1-2 months old.

Kamaage Shirasu, Chutoro and Negitoro Don:

Steamed baby sardine, tuna belly and minced tuna belly with rice underneath.

A bit of a fusion here, Soft Shell Crab Tortilla Pizza:

Here's another fusion dish, Maguro Yukke Pasta Salad:

It goes with a white French dressing which is not in the picture above.
Yet another Fusion type of dish, Asari and Hotate Garlic Shoyu Pasta:

Okonomiyaki is one of my favorite Japanese food and one of Sushi Tei's spring promotion is the Sakura Ebi Okonomiyaki:

Chu Toro Sashimi:

Some Soft Shell Crab (Not in the Spring Promotion):

And some Gyu Misoyaki (also not in the Spring Promotion):

You fry it with the miso-based sauce for a delicious finish:

This looks like Salmon Fried:

And this is the Sanma Shioyaki if I'm not mistaken:

All the delicious food finished off with a yummy Yoghurt Frozen Berries Ice Cream:

Sushi Tei has many outlets around the world but in Malaysia, there are 5. Three being in Tropicana, Gardens and Pavilion while 2 more is at Penang and Sabah.
