I have dine at Miraku Japanese Restaurant many times and this time around I am returning for their Sushi Buffet. Miraku has successfully introduced the All-You-Can-Eat Sushi Buffet with a selection of Sushi and Temaki.
The buffet features an array of fifteen creations of Sushi and six Temaki Sushi. Sushi lovers should not give this a miss especially with the plentiful choices of ingredients, like avocado, octopus, herring roe, unagi, salmon, tuna, white fish, sardine, squid, surf clam, scallop, tobikko and omelette. The seafood are freshly flown in three times a week.
The fresh prawn with natural sweetness and firm texture
I tucked in happily at the sushi bar and and watch the various colorful sushi being made by the chefs. Various sushi were made and placed piece by piece on the long wooden platter in front of me. Most of the sushi are served with raw fish with some served cooked, like the Unagi.
You can order unlimited amount of sushi, two rounds or even three rounds provided you can finish it.

Another sushi that I like is the Tobiko sushi
Surf clam nicely sliced up
Sweet and savory omelette (tamago)
Crunchy goodness of the Herring Roe, best with some soy sauce
A bit of alcohol was an excellent accompaniment to the sushi meal.
Their sushi is fairly popular with the place crowded with mostly Japanese.
The Temaki Sushi came with ingredients of natto, salmon skin, ebiten, cucumber, negitoro and pickle. I started with my personal favorite, the crispy salmon skin with tobiko – a delicious blend with a harmonious texture. I could not held myself for second helping.

It was a delight to see Miraku serving negitoro (chopped tuna belly) roll. The rich and fatty texture of the tuna belly combine well with the refreshing spring onions.
Another interesting roll is the Natto handroll. The Natto is fermented soy bean in a gooey texture with a unique taste. Some said that the taste is quite similar to the fermented stinky tofu. You have to acquired the taste and once you do so, the taste gets better and better.

Overall, I did enjoy tantalizing my taste bud with the freshness and the lightness of sushi in Miraku! Check out the chef in action in my vblog below…
