Review: Tokyo Kitchen Sakae

Japanese food is definitely one of my favourite cuisines.
Sadly, there  aren’t that many great Japanese restaurants near me. So you can imagine my joy when Ashley told me of this wonderful Japanese restaurant right near his work place in Brighton!

Funnily enough, we decided to visit on a day where I wanted to “save money”, but of course… we couldn’t resist their sashimi platter, nor some sake to accompany it! But hey, I do not regret my decision ♥

Takoyaki ($8.90)

I don’t think Ash and I ever go to a Japanese restaurant and not get takoyaki!
If you’re not familiar with Japanese cuisine, “ocotopus balls”might freak you out but I assure you they are absolutely delicious and a must have! *salivates

Sushi & Sashimi Platter for One ($22.90): 2 pc tempura tuna roll, 3 pc nigiri, 1 pc tamagoyaki & 9 pc assorted sashimi

Honestly, I didn’t become a fan of sashimi until I went to Japan! I blame that on the bad ones I must’ve tried here prior the delicious ones I got to eat in Japan mmm

Anyway, this sashimi platter was the bombbbbb. It had two pieces of maguro (tuna), as well as a maguro nigiri which is, hands down, my favourite kind of sashimi out there! It also came with tempura tuna rolls which I’ve never come across before, and unsurprisingly, they were also super delicious. Everything on this platter was great and I totally regretted not getting the Platter for Two, considering Ash got to try a piece of everything!

Premium BBQ Wagyu ($29.80) – BBQ full blood & marbling 9+ wagyu, served with spicy teriyaki vegetables

 This was some pretty delicious wagyu that came with a side dish of black rice.
I didn’t eat much of  this so I can’t really comment, but I do think its definitely a dish to try!

Green tea ice cream ($? not on menu)

There wasn’t actually any dessert on the menu but I really wanted some (as you do)!
Luckily, when we asked, they had some ice cream (red bean, black sesame and green tea) that we could order. It was a delicious way to end an awesome dinner!

I hear they also have some  smashin’ bentos during the day, so I’m pretty excited to visit Brighton some time in the nearby future to try some of them mmm ♥
