My friends know that I swore solemnly to the sushis/sashimi in Kame Sushi, Desa Sri Hartamas. So naturally they were curious on my opinion of Sushi Hinata, which carries very similar concept of authentic Japanese cuisine that place focuses on Omakase meal prepared freshly by Master Chef by the sushi counter.
Sushi Hinata is a sushi specialist that has opened not long ago and has since gain a widespread popularity within my circle of friends, with some stating that their sushi are the next best thing they have had since Japan. So with that in mind, I enter Sushi Hinata at St. Mary Residence with only one purpose- to try their OMAKASE (degustation by the chef)
My Master Chef of the night is Chef Oritsuki, or Chef Ori, originated in GINZA with over 30 years of experience. Chef Ori has arrived Malaysia only 2 months ago, and knows minimal English. But he is friendly, funny and engaging that you will find yourself drawn to his jolly mood.
It is to my surprise that I was surrounded by patrons that I know that night, with my left being Kame Sushi Master Chef himself and my right being an acquaintance. The restaurant is to my opinion overly bright and has counter seating of not more than 20. There are several private rooms, though most would prefer to be seated where the main actions are- by the counter and I will strongly recommend it.
Their OMAKASE per person starts from RM350++onwards, while limited ala carte dishes are available as well as a cheaper sushi set meal of RM280. The best time to come is Tuesday and Friday for those are the days where the shipments arrive and when their fish are the freshest, but Reservation is strongly recommended.
Ok moving on, let’s see how many of the items I can remember, there were just so many that by the end of the night, I was thoroughly stuffed! Is it worth the spurge of RM350? You bet it is.
