Sushi Mentai @ Mahkota Cheras, Sushi at only RM1.80 or RM2.80!

March 21, 2016

Dear readers, if you are staying in popular neighbourhood, did you notice Sushi Mentai in your neighbourhood? Even though i am staying at Kajang so called "not so popular" area hahaha... i found one at Sg.Chua also. Sushi Mentai is the fastest-growing chain in heartland areas, serves exquisite yet affordable Japanese cuisine, allowing all to enjoy Japanese delicacies against a modern and casual backdrop, there are more outlets to come by end of the year. 

What's make Sushi Mentai so special and popular? I believe most of you heard about how cheap of their sushi. Yay! There are 2 prices for sushi only which is begins at ONLY RM1.80 and RM2.80 per plate!!! OH MY GOD!!! soooo cheap!!! Can you find this price of sushi nowadays?!!! Not everyone can afford eating Japanese food so often, Sushi King has superb promotion sometimes but also not cheap as Sushi Mentai. But, is the taste and quality good with cheap cheap price? 
To answer this question, i went to the branch at Mahkota Cheras for my brunch last few days, it was a weekday. Sushi Mentai open at 12pm everyday. To avoid crowds, i reached at their doorstep at 12pm sharp. Obviously i had make a smart decision because the crowd was overwhelming during lunch hour (after 12.30pm) and i heard staff said that always long queue during dinner hours especially weekends. 
Another attraction is Sushi Mentai with a wide choice of meals and plenty on your plate including appetizer, soup, sashimi, tempura, teriyaki, donburi, katsu, noodles and sukiyaki. It serves superior ingredients and condiments mostly imported from Japan to treat one to a gastronomical fare.
Well, as you can see from the name Sushi Mentai which is stems from Mentaiko, a sought-after top fish roe dish lightly flavoured with sauce, and a household Japanese dish. No doubt their signature dishes are also specially served with an in-house concocted Mentai sauce to bring out the flavours of the inherent ingredients.
Red plate menu : Salmon Mentai, Hotate Mentai and 25 choices. 
Chuka Kurage   RM4.80
Sashimi Salad   RM9.80
Sashimi salad features fresh salmon, octopus and white tuna, with my favourite dressing (sesame dressing).This beautiful light salad is bright looking and super-healthy.
Hokkigai  RM8.80 / 4 pcs
FYI, Hokkigai (北寄貝) is a species of edible saltwater clam, a marine bivalve mollusk in the family Mactridae, the surf clams or trough clams. It has a slightly sweet and mild ocean aroma, and is not particularly chewy. While chewed it for a while, the sweet aromas become more evident.
Salmon Toro   RM11.80 / 5 pcs
Salmon Belly sashimi is always in my favourite sashimi list, it is a must to order when i visit Japanese restaurant every time. I love all the the fatty belly portion of the fish! Because it is the most prized, unctuous, and with the luscious mouth feel of butter! 
Take   RM16.80
A combination of 3 types sashimi : Salmon, Octopus and White tuna.
Unagi Cheese Maki   RM12.80 / 4 pcs
It is a omelette sushi roll topped with roasted eel and cheese. Take a bite, unagi and cheese for melt-in-your-mouth happiness, it was really good!
Spider Maki   RM13.80 / 4 pcs
Soft Shell Crab sushi roll popped with shrimp roe.
Salmon Wrap   RM10.80 / 6 pcs
Sometimes it is quite stuffed when eat too many sushi, so this is the best choice for you or to ladies who are on diet. Salmon and cucumber are wrapped in the translucent rice sheet.
 Inner Wrap  RM7.80 / 6 pcs
Crabstick and beancurd skin wrapped with rice sheet.
 Unagi Kabayaki   RM18.80
Ebi Mentaiyaki   RM 9.80
Succulent prawn grilled until perfection, still tender and juicy perfection, topped with tangy mentaiko sauce. So delicious and highly recommended.
Sanma Shioyaki   RM9.80
Wakame Soba   RM8.80
Tori Katsu Curry Rice   RM13.80
It is difficult to find Japanese curry which suit Malaysian's taste bud, but i found this curry rice is just nice for me and i like it! A hearty, mildly spicy main meal best served with rice. Worthy enough when i saw the portion, big enough as a main course to filling your stomach. 
Sushi Mentai loves to creating something totally new but tasty to bring surprise to their customer. Thus, you can find "today's special" on the conveyor belt sushi everyday at ONLY RM2.80 per plate.
Overall, Sushi Mentai is the neighbourhood Japanese restaurant and served a wide range of affordable Japanese foods. Although the price is cheap but does't mean their food is low quality, freshness and flavours were pretty good. Give it a try if you are looking for budget lunch/ dinner. =)
