Sashimi Unajyu Set, $30.90
How was your weekend? I just hopped off a 4 days 3 nights weekend cruise with Royal Caribbean (two days ago) and I'm still feeling blissfully sun kissed! Also, the wonderful people behind "The View From Fez" recently published my post on Moroccan street food here. Do check out their site - it's incredibly informative!
During the cruise, we dropped by Penang and Malacca, which were absolutely delicious destinations. Before I blog about the cruise and our day excursions though, here's a lip-smacking post on Tatsuya. Remember how I resolved to squeeze in better lunches this year? Tatsuya was right on my agenda and I couldn't be more pleased when my best friend, S, brought me there for a birthday treat! I had the Sashimi Unajyu set, which was pretty much the best of not one, not two, but three worlds - marrying luscious sashimi cuts (including a slice of Mekajiki) with excellent unagi and crispy tempura. The unagi had everything going for it - fatty cuts, barely discernible bones and an addictive sweet, sticky and savoury sauce. In fact, it was so good that unagi-averse S liked it too! The tempura was satisfying but the batter could be lighter. The set also included a velvety smooth chawanmushi alongside a bowl of miso soup and fruits.
Sashimi Bento Set, $28.90
S had the Sashimi Bento set, which was similar to mine except without unagi and sporting an additional slice of yellow tail. Chunky cubes of tamago were also scattered on top of the rice.
As if the food wasn't enough of a draw, service at Tatsuya was also top notch. Most of the wait staff, who were donning beautiful kimonos, were incredibly polite and well-versed in Japanese, English and Mandarin. We even received a text message thanking and inviting us to visit again a few hours after leaving the restaurant! Lunch at Tatsuya is definitely something I want to do again very soon. Its gorgeous location just makes it the perfect respite from the usual hustle and bustle of town, don't you think?
P.S. My last Morocco post is still in the works... stay tuned!
