Sushi Azabu at Isetan The Japan Store
First outlet in Southeast Asia; pork-free
A Michelin-starred sushi restaurant from New York, Sushi Azabu imports their seafood from Japan two to three times a week, and they specialize in tuna, sea eel and gizzard shad (a type of herring). This here is an authentic sushi experience that’s not common in KL: The fish or seafood such as scallop and prawn will be seasoned by the chef before serving, so it’s best eaten as is without any additional soy sauce or wasabi on the side. However, while salmon is not traditionally eaten in Japan, you’ll find it on the menu as it’s a popular demand in our city.
You’ll be spoilt for choice here with a varied selection of fish that includes amberjack, big-eye snapper, horse mackerel, eels and more. There’s something very stylish and elegant about the Azabu sushi. For one, the fish is cut longer than usual, resulting in a slimmer piece of sushi. This makes it easier to enjoy the sushi in one bite, which makes for a better eating experience.
