For the longest time I had wanted to go to Sushi King. Make that since 2007 when I landed in Kuala Lumpur and the humid air hit me. But absolutely no one in my circle of friends likes Japanese food. Except for my bro, and he gets them from Carefour.
So guess where we went to last weekend? Yes, Sushi King, and I am very excited to do this review. This was a business lunch; eating sushi is business. Because Japanese are such workaholics, we pretend we are too.
Here is why you should all try out sushi, even though you hate it because its been balled (i.e., someone has been toying with your food I know) and the wasabi makes you snort and go cross-eyed for a second.

1. Raw salmon is not bad at all.
2. The waiters are really nice. They really are. They are soft-spoken like the Japanese. Even though they come from all over the world. They must have gone through some sort of Japanese (war) training.
|Right under our very noses...|
3. Don't bother ordering off the menu. You're going to get food off the conveyor belt regardless. One little saucer passes by under your nose--*checking watch*--every 1.5 seconds.
4. It tastes better than it looks. And it looks good.
|Golden egg. Half of it is gone. A+|
|Tuna sushi with rice and cucumber. A+|
5. The golden egg is superb.
6. The fried vegetables in that light tempura batter is crazy wild.
|Veggies in tempura. Kisses! A++|
|Wow. You're amazing!|
|Look! I can finally lift food!|
7. Using chopsticks increases hand-eye coordination. With enough practice you can become a kung-fu panda master and defend yourself with it. And betcha the kids will gape at you in awe.
8. It is very very good although I am told the sushi we have in Malaysia isn't anything like the ones the Japanese eat. In a way, this means you're not going to culture-shock your taste-buds senseless. It's food you are going to like.
|Mazlan being chef. Mixing sauce with the wasabi. Thats how you do it folks.|
In a nutshell, head over to sushi king like the queen that you are! And when you do go, I recommend you sit at the bar in front of the chef. Just because!
