What a feast was had this past Saturday in celebration of P’s birthday! Location: Wasai on Field St for some Japanese tucker. :)~~
Whilst waiting for some late arrivals, we decided to go ahead and order first thinking the food would come out just as the others arrive. Boy were we wrong or what? After a mere 5 minutes of putting our order through, bam bam, thank you ma’am. All the food was pouring out of the kitchen… almost like an express restaurant service. Heheh!
Tsunami (sake cocktail with lychee and muscat) and complimentary edamame beans
The tsunami was sooooo good. Fizzy sweet goodness hidden with a smidgen of alcohol.. :)~
Agedashi tofu and takoyaki; $6.50 and $7.50
Light refreshing silky tofu encased in a light crispy batter drowned in a hot tentsuyu broth; broth made from dashi, mirin and soy sauce. One of my must have dishes when dining out for Japanese food. Light and delightful!
As for the takoyaki, let me tell you… Wasai gets these babies oh so right! Crispy batter and piping hot octopus filling in the centre. :)~
Aburi salmon roll: Californian roll topped with lightly grilled salmon, mayonnaise and sweet soy sauce; $10.80
Dragon roll: spicy salmon roll layered with grilled eel and avocado served with sweet soy sauce; $14.50
The aburi salmon roll was amazingggggggggggg. The lightly grilled flavour seeps through the fresh salmon, paired with the dollop of mayonnaise AND eaten with a Californian sushi… bliss does not even come close. Omnomnom~
Tempura prawns, fish and vegetables and tori mayonnaise; $9.50 and $14.50
Lovely light and crispy tempura and to-die-for tori mayonnaise. I’ve figured, if you put Japanese mayo on anything, it’s bound to taste good, no?
Deluxe sushi and sashimi boat: a deluxe selection of sashimi, nigiri sushi and sushi rolls; $54.00
YUMMMM!! Someone should set me a food challenge, finish this baby off on my own. I think I could do it… Hahaha!
Shiratama anmitsu: green tea ice cream with mini rice cakes, red bean paste and fruit; $6.80
And to finish off a delightful meal, some green tea ice cream for my tum tum with chewy pieces of rice cake, sweet bean paste and a variety of fruit. Light, refreshing and totally satisfying!
Wasai, you are good. So good that I may be seeing your bright orange signage again! :)~~
