Chez Sushi is all set to open its fifth branch in the U. A. E. What attracted me towards this, is the cute decor and the custom made sushi. Now who wouldn’t love that?
We walked into the branch located in Bay Avenue on a quiet Tuesday afternoon, where the kind manager took our order. We started with a Lemon mint drink which totally refreshed me.
For starters, we ordered some Prawn spring rolls and a Mushroom salad (Totally recommended. Unless you’re allergic to mushrooms)
I loved the dip served with the prawn spring rolls. Wasabi mayo they called it. Creamy with a strong essence of wasabi, these went quite well with the spring rolls. I found them a bit too oily, though.
For mains, we tried some Salmon Teriyaki, my favourite Rock Shrimp and their popular Chicken Katsu Curry.
Starting with what I loved, the Rock Shrimp was amazing. I could easily name this the dish of the day. Though I’ve had better elsewhere. The shrimps could have been fried a bit more according to me. Not healthy I know, but oh well, that’s what cheat days are about.
The Chicken Katsu curry had a strong taste of something I couldn’t quite place. The rice helped neutralize the strong taste. Sadly, The Salmon Teriyaki was forgettable.
Coming to our Maki Rolls, we chose the Spider and Dragon (Minus the eel. Yes, I’m not really adventurous)
Out of the two, I preferred the Dragon. These consisted of avocado, prawn tempura, cucumber with unagi sauce. A creamy texture provided by the avocado with the crispiness of the prawns, and the unagi sauce, was wonderful.
We obviously ended our meal with the Mochi Ice cream. Who can go wrong with these? Out of the flavours we tasted, Green Tea was my favourite. The other two were chocolate and coconut.
Lastly, before bidding goodbye to our kind server, we had some authentic Japanese green tea. A much-needed drink after all that we had!
Hungryoungwoman recommends the Mushroom Salad, Dragon maki rolls, and the Rock Shrimps.
Should try the customized sushi next time! Until then…
