Yo! Sushi, The Gardens, Mid Valley City

Simon Says: 醉酒佬数街灯,不知几盏

After getting my facial at MTM in the Gardens. I heard my stomach's growling. So, I went around and look for food. I passed by Yo! Sushi. I read some review about it but haven't try it yet. So, in I went.

The defacto soya sauce and wasabi.

YO! Sushi is a kaitenzushi (回転寿司) restaurant much like Sushi King, Genki Sushi and Sakae Sushi's concept but it's food here is more towards fusion. Maybe it's because Yo! Sushi is originated from UK.

The summer special menu

Even thought it says Yo! Sushi but there's actually a lot of other ala carte choices. First from the conveyor belt I saw this. Attracted by the bright yellow chrysanthemum. I think the name is Salmon Spinach with Sesame and Chrysanthemum salad. Orange coloured side plate means RM 10.

This is quite a new combination for me. The spinach is drench on Japanese sytle salad sauce. Eaten with the salmon is quite appetizing. The turn off is that I found that the salmon is a bit warm. I mean, I like to eat my raw salmon with a chill. That's the con of kaiten.

Rating: 3/5

Next up. LOL. Another salad. I feel so healthy wtf. Blue colour means RM 5 if not mistaken. Tofu Wakame Salada (Japanese Tofu and Seaweed Salad) I found this salad is a bit bland and the tofu and wakame a bit dry. Good for a monk and someone who's on a diet. I won't take this from the conveyor belt on the next visit.

Rating: 2.5/5

Next, ah, alas a sushi. Tamago Sushi (Egg Sushi). Green means RM 3. Well, all I can say is that this is a total turn off. Looks nice here but once I bit into it there's water coming out from the egg. It's either they put it on the conveyor belt for too long or there's something really wrong with the air-conditioning in the shop.

Rating: 0/5

After some dissapointment Off the belt, I decided to Order now.

And the chef prepares my Order now.

First up from order now. A purple coloured RM 8 sushi. Seared Beef sushi with a dash of mayonnaise. Nothing can go wrong when the beef is seared to that colour. This is the first time I eat beef sushi. Personally I don't think beef makes a very good ingredient for sushi but this one goes quite well with the sushi rice.

Rating: 3.5/5

How can one come to eat sushi without eating a temaki sushi (hand roll sushi). I ordered a Salmon Belly temaki. Crispy nori (seaweed) roll around a meaty salmon belly. Slurp. Enough said.

Rating: 3.5/5

Ah, the last of my order, the much rave about Miso Black Cod. It does live up to the raving. Fat juicy cod meat marinated in sweet miso sauce, which in turn makes it easier to eat without the jelak feeling. Grey means RM 16. The most expensive colour. This dish sure save the day.

Rating: 4/5

Well, some hit and misses. I think it's better to Order now than to eat Off the belt which will guarantee the freshness of the food. It's a bit pricier compared with Sushi Zanmai. I don't mind coming back once in a while for he Miso Black Cod and some of their creative sushi and ala carte.

On the side track:

After a light meal in Yo! Sushi, I went to Starbucks for dessert.

While I was going to the loo, I was taken aback when I saw this sign from far and thought that I mistakenly walk into the female's toilet. Once I look closely, and check, I am in the male's toilet.
Ah, how considerate of the management to warn customer that the opposite sex is now cleaning your loo. So do they have Male cleaner cleaning in the female's toilet and put up a similar notice?
