Seafood pot @ Masamura Sushi Restaurant Apr 06, 2012
Carpaccio sushi salmon and tuna
This was bascially the usual sushi topped with sliced onions, a slice of lemon and some Italian dressing.
Overall they tasted quite pleasant and it was just like carpaccio with rice.
Steamed egg with urchin
This tasted too salty.
Seafood hotpot with crab
There was not enough soup to cover the contents when it came, so asked for more broth so that the contents could be ensured that they got cooked.
The crab did not taste that fresh and it came straight from the Freezer because there was ice particles on it.
The cutlery for the crab had to be requested.
English menu: yes, and they have pictures!
Yummy factor: OK
Sweetness levels: OK

Matching soy sauces Nov 12, 2010
Hidden on the corner, it is along the row of restaurants at Jusco next to Cafe Das Gute, this restaurant is easily missed.
Outside, it looks like the usual sushi restaurants, but it was much better than anticipated.
The seating is fairly good and comfy.
The best thing was the menu, it had a product shot for every item with English and Chinese, and the ordering list was in clear format with each section labelled accordingly eg grilled section, hot dishes etc.
In western dining there is red and white wine to match red and white meat, they had light and dark soy sauce to match the sushi, dark for the stronger tasting items such a tuna and beef, and light soy sauce for the delicate items such a prawn and scallop.
The service overall was good, the tea was refilled frequently, and the orders were well organised, there was a printed list of what was ordered, and when the items arrived, it was crossed off the list.
Ordered ten items, the noodles were so good, that another plate was ordered.
This was the best cold noodle I have ever had, they were a combination of green tea noodles, and the plain noodles.
The noodles were so thin, slightly thinner than angel hair pasta.
Sushi with salt:
Ordered the scallop sushi and the prawn tempura sushi, which comes with salt to sprinkle on it, however the waiter forgot to ask the choice me if I wanted sea salt or grapefruit salt, hence sea salt was given.
I would have ordered both salts to try, if I knew beforehand.
The prawn tempura was ok.
Crab leg sushi with crab paste:
This tasted ok, but the real item was very different to the product shot.
In the product shot the portion of crab paste is much more significant!
Salmon, roe, sea urchin flower of love:
This was quite good, however the sea urchin didn’t look that fresh, the colour was faded rusty orange, and the sea urchin portion was quite small too.
Soft shell crab tempura hand-roll:
There could have been more sauce.
Prawn with tobikko gunkan:
This was very nice, it reminded me of prawn cocktail with roe in it, the seaweed that they used was amazingly fresh, it was wafer like and crisp.
3 assorted salmon sushi:
This was very different from the product shot, it was basically three identical grilled salmon sushi’s, but in the product shot, all three were different as the name suggests.
