New Japanese restaurant is always an exciting news for us since Japanese cuisine is like our number 2 fav cuisine after Indonesian cuisine of course. Sushi Nara offers comprehensive range of Japanese dishes mainly sushi from classic authentic ones to fusion innovative ones here are some of the signature dishes that AnakJajan tried:
Salmon Carpaccio IDR 36k
We just love how tender buttery the torch-grilled salmon was, then the light tangy seasoning with a bit of sesame oil was just perfect to stimulate the appetite.
Unagi Chirashi IDR 108k
This dish exactly met my expectation, sushi rice was fluffy and nicely seasoned, then the unagi were full of flavor and tender with nice caramelization on top.
Otoro Foie Gras Nigiri IDR 92k // Inari Otoro Foie Gras IDR 92k
You can get basic classic nigiri sushi as well as fancy unique ones like these, Otoro Foie Gras Nigiri and Inari Otoro Foie Gras. The addition of foie gras simply gave the sushi a nice buttery finish.
Kagoshima Beef 48k + Foie Gras IDR 48k
This was our MOST FAVORITE item during our visit. Sushi rice with torch-grilled thinly sliced beef, ikura, and additional foie gras. It was wonderfully exquisite, the beef was super tender and aromatic, you will get a subtle hint of yuzu from the sauce, it gave the sushi a fresh finish. TOOOO YUMMEH you have to try it!!
Maguro Salmon Special Roll IDR 68k
Presentation on point!!😍
The colorful combination between tuna and salmon from Maguro Salmon Special Roll stands out more with the bridge looking plate presentation. It’s true that we eat with our eyes first so we gotta give Sushi Nara a plus point for presentation.
Salmon Aburi Onsen IDR 28k
Imagine the soft buttery salmon aburi sushi with creamy onsen egg exploding in your mouth. Irresistibly good!
Aburi Nigiri Set IDR 135k
The aburi nigiri set consists of Salmon Aburi, Salmon Belly Aburi, Otoro Aburi, Ika Aburi, Ebi Aburi, Hotate Aburi, and Aburi Wagyu Beef. Aburi style refers to nigiri sushi where the fish/ingredient is partially cooked or torch-grilled on the topside, it gave the ingredient a delightful grill aroma.
AnakJajan love the proportion between sushi rice and topping here, it’s nice just the way we like, just look at the generous cut of ingredients above the sushi rice.
Salmon Hana Unagi
Aburi salmon sushi with unagi and creamy mentai sauce, a combination that simply cannot go wrong.
Wagyu Truffle Don IDR 72k + Foie Gras IDR 48k
Personally think that it needs more sauce but other than that, everything was enjoyable without overpowering, great tender wagyu beef, nicely cooked onsen egg, melt-in-the-mouth foie gras and fluffy rice with just the right hint of truffle oil aroma.
Unagi Salmon Mentai Roll IDR 84k
Unagi, salmon and creamy mentai sauce is a sushi combination that you won’t get tired of since they complement each other nicely. It was creamy but just in the right level to be enjoyable.
Overall, AnakJajan are happy to say that Sushi Nara serves legit good sushi dishes, ingredients are fresh, the combination of ingredients is interesting as well. They seriously have sooo many options of dishes we look forward to try other ones on the next visit.
