More Than Just Good Sushi: Sushi Tei, Kota Kinabalu

5 January 2016

Japanese food: Almost everyone I know loves it. 

For the adventurous. 
For those watching their weight.
For the wasabi kick.

Whether it’s the salmon salads, the rice bowls (don), sashimi, or sushi, going out for Japanese is always a popular dinner suggestion when it comes to special occasions, or even just girls night out! Everyone usually has a favourite restaurant, but here in KK, Sushi Tei seems to be one of the most popular choices - and it’s not hard to see why!
Salmon Sashimi  RM13.80 / 3pcs
I’m usually pretty boring when it comes to food, always opting for the usual dishes: Teriyaki steak. Garlic fried rice. Gyuniku don. Tamago sushi. Inari. Salmon maki. All safe choices as you can see! So when Sushi Tei invited me to try out their latest promotion menu, I was both excited and anxious; what if they feed me somethings weird like jellyfish? Yes I know about 98% of my friends love jellyfish but it’s just not for me! 
Halibut Curry Ramen  RM21.80
I was pleasantly surprised to see Mr Lo had ordered a lot of choices for me to try, and I’m happy to say I liked all of them - no lie! Having said that, my favourite would definitely be the Halibut Curry Ramen topped with flatfish fillet and fried winter melon, and the Hamachi Kama Shio, which is yellow tail cheek grilled with salt - to die for! Of course, salmon sashimi is also a no-brainer when it’s so juicy and fresh!
Hamachi Kama Shio  RM52.80
Now with 30% discount at Sushi Tei Oceanus KK
Hamachi sashimi is the dual coloured fish, so if you are ordering sashimi and wanna try something new, try this. It's definitely on my list next meal!
Kawara Charcoal Soba  RM19.80
If you prefer non-spicy Soba, just request to omit the radish. I liked this, but it was a bit spicy for my palette. These are the well-known "cold noodles", so definitely get around to trying some!

 This salmon skin maki tastes as good as it looks, and this is one pretty sushi platter!
Autumn Salmon Skin Roll  RM6.80
Limited Promotion Item
Salmon Head (Half) Shio  RM20.80
Get 20% off at both Suria Sabah and Oceanus Outlets
Finishing off with pure matcha ice cream was literally the cherry on the cake: those are little green chunks of heaven - trust me on this one! 
Nama Matcha Ice Cream  RM16.80
With two outlets in Kota Kinabalu, Sushi Tei not only provides great food, they also create great ambience, with both outlets overlooking the South China Sea. The first outlet is in Suria Sabah; right on the corner, in one of the most well-loved malls in town, while the newest one has a breathtaking view of the sunset, in KK’s latest Oceanus Mall.

The Autumn Indulgence menu will be available until Chinese New Year 2016, while you can also receive a 20% discount off the salmon head in both outlets, and 30% off the hamachi in the Oceanus branch. 

Even better news? Both Sushi Tei outlets in Kota Kinabalu have waived the 10% service charge - yay for savings! 

Til the next indulgence,
Calista xx
