Day 4 in Hong Kong saw our first experience with a sushi train restaurant. If you’ve not tried it before, essentially you are sat in front on a tablet with the menu on it and you order what you want from the screen.
Then a minute later, the dish or dishes you ordered arrive in front of you on a train. There is an alarm alerting you that your food has arrived, you take it off and press a button to send the train back to the kitchen. It’s such a gimmick but it really made the restaurant experience unique – although why we were charged 10% service is beyond me!
There were a whole range of different sushi available, from tuna and salmon sashimi to an Australian wagyu nigiri with sea urchin, from beancurd roll to California hand roll. There were even some Japanese-inspired appetisers such as Cheesy Fries, Fried Soft Shell Crab and Chicken Wings. All of it was reasonably priced but the money starts to stack up when there are 7 hungry people!! Here is some of what I ordered:
There was even dessert, which was Mille Crepe. If you’ve not heard of Mille Crepe, basically it’s lot of crepes stacked on top of each other with a filling, traditionally a Creme patissiere. This Mille Crepe has a frozen cream inside so it broke apart in layers.
Remember that you can keep up to date with my holiday using #AITKitchenInHK!
