What's on top of my list? It is written all over those drool-worthy Japanese food on the collage! Haha! My love for Japanese food is influenced by my teenager-slash-gluttongirl (she said that herself ok?) who I regularly go out with for one-on-one foodie bondates. She can eat sushi Every. Single. Day if you let her be. I can't wait to bring her at Barashi-Tei on our next bondate!
Here are the food we sampled at Barashi-Tei which made my girl drool after I showed her the photos:
AVOCADO SALMON SALAD ($13.80)
SASHIMI SALAD ($13.80)
Now, change the salmon and avocado into assorted sashimi and you get this. It all boils down into individual preference and I will definitely choose the former than the latter.
CHIRASHI DON ($23)
Underneath those yummy goodness (an assortment of 1cm thick salmon, tuna, mackerel, mekajiki and tamago slices) is perfectly cooked Japanese rice that came from Japan. Apparently, Japanese rice bought at supermarkets are not as authentic as the ones flown from Japan. If you are a big eater, go for this.
SAKE JYU DON ($16.80)
For those like me who can't say no to salmon, this is a great alternative Chirashi Don.
MAGURO NAKAOCHI DON ($16.80)
And yet, another alternative if you don't fancy salmon.
BARA CHIRASHI ($13.80)
A bowl filled with cubes of maguro, salmon, ikura, makajiki and tamago.
ABURI BARA CHIRASHI ($16.80)
Can you spot the difference between Bara Chirashi and Aburi Bara Chirashi? Yes! The latter is torched and I definitely enjoyed it more.
SPICY SALMON MAKI ($12.80)
Just looking at the photo makes me drool all over again! This is the crowd favourite, the one that created a lasting impression in our taste buds. I cannot even tell you how good it was, you definitely have to order this when you dine at Barashi-Tei. For those who doesn't really like spicy food, this isn't really spicy so you can give it a try too.
RICE PAPER EBI MAKI ($10.80)
Looking for a less sinful option? Go for this! Obviously, this dish is inspired by Vietnamese summer roll.
IKA TERIYAKI ($13.80)
From the 10 Yakimono choices, we were only able to try one which is this Ika Teriyaki. If you love squid, you have to try this. The one served to us was perfectly grilled so it was not to hard and chewy just the way I like it. The sauce is a little sweeter than my taste buds' level of sweetness tolerance.
GINDARA NABE ($24)
The are 3 Nimono dish you can choose from the menu but this was recommended to us. For me, any soup is comfort food but what I love about this is that it contains fish, my favourite mushrooms, seaweed, carrots and tofu. All of it mixed together gave the soup slight sweetness. I say it's flavourful and comforting! The serving is big so it can be shared up to 6 diners.
WASABI EBI (7.80)
KURUMA EBI (7.80)
SIRLOIN STEAK FOIE GRASS ($19.80)
SMOKED DUCK KUSHI ($2.60)
YAKI TAMAGO ($5)
