Sushi Man 鮨文 – Omakase!

Sushi Man is a new Japanese restaurant owned by a young and passionate Chef who was trained in Hong Kong – Chef Cupid. His skillful experiences in Japanese sushi crafting has brought my attention on their popular Chef’s choice of the day that favor lots of Hong Kong locals, also known as omakase.

There are four dinner sets from range of 600-1300HKD, prepared only with the freshest and seasonal ingredients. We opt for the “Man”, which includes 6 kinds of sashimi, 8 pieces of sushi, 1 hand roll, fish soup, steamed egg and dessert.

Started off with simple appetizers, tomato and tofu salad with Japanese sesame dressing and sweetened dried fishes. Whilst the chawanmushi is very silky, steamed with shrimps, crab meat, and smells absolutely amazing with the truffle on top.

Moving on to several sashimi, they are all equally fresh, delicate and delicious while I especially loved the torched ones such as the mackerel.

We are lucky to try some shirako that is seasonal in October to March. It is the milt of male cod, looking like a clump of white blobs that is creamy and soft. The way it is slightly seared and served with pickle radish has removed the odd flavor afterall.

As all sushi are made with sushi rice that is already seasoned with soy sauce, Chef reminds us not to dip our sushi with additional soy. Some worth-noting are flounder with seasonings of sea salt and yuzu zests, sweet shrimp topped with creamy sea urchin, chutoro and akagai which both instantly melt in your mouth.

Lastly, a toro hand roll has rounded up the sushi set and the most instagram-worthy mini sea urchin don has come to be the best part of the meal. Large botan shrimp over an overwhelming portion of creamy uni, it is a top unbeatable bite. The fish soup is also impressive and a slice of cantaloupe is the perfect finish.

Although I have read across some bad services and attitudes about the restaurant, I am happy with my experience because Chef Cupid and the Boss are so friendly that they even joked around and chatted with us through the entire course.
