In conjunction with the launching, several Penang bloggers were invited to attend the “ Sakae Teppanyaki & Izakaya Event”, thanks to the invitation by Yi Wen. We had a great time learning the art of making sushi and cooking teppanyaki besides enjoying a feast of Teppanyaki, Sushi and Cocktail.

The Teppanyaki Cooking Demonstration and the Izakaya Sushi Making Workshop was extremely fun, interesting and interactive. Every blogger had their hands on at sushi making while a few took part in the teppanyaki event. It looks easy but in reality it is not what it seems!

We had a variety of mouth-watering dishes including several of their specialties. We were firstly introduced to a series of rolls.

First up was the Sushi Platter – Rainbow Maki. The maki with raw salmon, red snapper, broiled prawn and crabmeat salad was topped with avocado & mango. I always like the refreshing and creamy taste of avocado with sushi. This roll with six pieces is priced at RM 12.80.

Next up was the Sushi Platter – Mango Soft Shell Crab Maki RM12.80. Mango lovers would love this roll with the refreshing fruit, fried soft shell crab, mayonnaise and shrimp roe.

My attention was drawn to the fiery display of the next dish. The Sushi Platter – Fire Dragon Maki comes with raw salmon, tempura prawn, salmon roe, shrimp roe, mango & mayonnaise. The roll RM13.80 was served with a flaming cucumber! All the ingredients combined well together in taste and presentation.

I went there for few times.
I love the first floor for the atmosphere, a very unique design you can find in Penang..
My gf love the strawberry and toufu cheese cake. for me, its a must try, cz you cant really find them else where :D

The Fire Dragon Roll recommended by Alice was excellent. having fun looking at the fire burning cucumber on the 1st floor :P

The Mocktail is at a the highest of its value for money, with such environment, and price for a tea time / chit chat session..
Its 10/10 for me !
