I could be termed a sumo when it comes to eating Sushi as I’d not mind entering a combat to adorn my ashet with countless them – walking down the aisle with Japanese is an incentive, that’s why.
So, when I received a courtesy call from Sumo Sushi, GK 2, avowing they’d be sending sushi for tryout – I was elated.
What I ordered – (the whole lot possible that I intended to) I stuck to, having a strapping urge to maintain my reputation in mind, Uramaki. I like Uramaki better than other variations as I prefer the rice on the outside and the Nori, inside cryptically situated.
The list comprised of Veg Philly Roll, Spicy Mushoom, Spicy Tuna and Chicken Katsu. That’s it by the way!
What arrived at the door steps was a visual treat to start in on with – painstakingly packed in vivid cherry taut boxes that would keep the sushi from gently sloping over each other – it’d remain fit to be seen even after having trekked for long (considering they’re on Indian roads). There was separate packing for accompaniments like the wasabi, pickled ginger and soy in leak-proof boxes.
Getting down to business of nom nom – being a strict nonveggie, I do enjoy Veg sushis especially if they are stuffed with mushrooms, avocados or asparagus. So the Veg Phlli Roll was scrumptious. Bearing a fresh disposition, this one had cucumber and avocado entwined with cream cheese giving it a nuance of pleasing piquancy.
The Spicy Mushroom was delish too – even the misanthropists would like this one, my father did. He has never bothered to even smell a sushi in life.
The Spicy Tuna was beautifully layered. It was a wrap with spicy mayo and avocado, I’m assuming or so my taste buds put in the picture. A hint of shichimi could be felt – it’s a popular Jap assortment of spices with red chili pepper topping the list. It was amazeballs.
The Chicken Katsu uses the same prep as the Spicy Tuna with fried crispy chicken as the filling. Gorgeous! Though you wouldn’t enjoy this one slightly cold as the fried chicken tends to become soggy and pliable losing out on its tang.
