If we have to name one favorite place for sushi in Jakarta, Sushi Masa would be the one, however as much as we enjoy Sushi Masa, going to the restaurant can be a bit inconvenient as it’s located in the middle of Muara Baru fish harbour. Finally in the beginning of January 2016, they have opened a new outlet at Baywalk Mall Pluit area with new name and concept, Nama Sushi by Sushi Masa.
UPDATE: Nama Sushi by Sushi Masa has opened a new outlet in Living World Alam Sutera and soon another outlet in Emporium Pluit Mall.
We always love how well and meticulous Sushi Masa maintain the quality and taste of their food, that’s why we’ve been eagerly waiting for the opening since last year. Nama Sushi is located inside Baywalk Mal at the new Baywalk Garden near Baywalk Tunnel LGM floor.
Salmon Aburi Cheese IDR 20k/ 2pcs
Salmon Belly Aburi Sushi IDR 25k/ 2pcs
California Maki IDR 35k
Salmon Hana Roll IDR 35k/ 2pcs
At this moment, the menu at Nama Sushi is still pretty similar just not as complete as Sushi Masa, but one important thing that we notice is the price here in Nama Sushi is cheaper than Sushi Masa, the owner told us that they serve smaller portion in Nama Sushi in order to adjust the price to be more suitable for the market here, but the quality remains the same. In the future, they plan to bring more new fusion sushi dishes in Nama Sushi.
Maguro Sashimi IDR 15k/ 2pcs
Salmon Belly Sashimi IDR 25k/ 2pcs
Gyutan Teriyaki IDR 40k
Beef Negima Teriyaki IDR 45k
Tori Negima Teriyaki IDR 20k
Maguro Aburi Sashimi IDR 20k/ 2pcs
Judging from the price, quality and portion, AnakJajan must say that Nama Sushi is very affordable. It tasted just as delicious as Sushi Masa with reasonable portion, we can see ourselves visiting Nama Sushi frequently. Sashimi was very delicate, fresh and delicious, grilled items were grilled nicely with lovely charred aroma and tender texture. Some dishes for example Maguro Karaage & Chicken Namban were a bit small in terms of portion but still appropriate and reasonable compared to the affordable price.
Maguro Karaage IDR 15k
Chicken Namban IDR 30k
Black Cod Teriyaki IDR 70k
Beef Aburi Sushi (special request)
This is one of our favorites in Sushi Masa, tender melt-in-the mouth beef sushi. It was sadly not available in Nama Sushi but lucky us we were able to make a special request. If you guys are going to Sushi Masa, don’t forget to try this heavenly menu!
Here are some of the new and fusion dishes that they’ve been testing and planning to put in Nama Sushi. Unlike fusion sushi at other places that use cheese and mayonnaise excessively, we found the fusion sushi in Nama Sushi was palatable and very tasty, if the all of the upcoming fusion sushi dishes taste like this we would be gladly looking forward to it.
Matcha Hokkaido Soft Ice Cream
We were impressed with the soft ice cream, texture wise was not perfect yet as they were still testing the setting of their ice cream machine but flavor wise was superb thanks to the use of Hokkaido milk. A must must try for ice cream lovers!
Overall, all dishes we had at Nama Sushi were affordable and as expected very delicious and satisfying. Looking forward to visit again very soon. Let’s Jajan!!
