Chinese New Year Flavourful Menu at Sakae Sushi

Hello lovely readers *waving right hand*

It's a time of reunions, bonding and festivities ~ Its Chinese New Year you alls .. And what better way to celebrate this prosperous and joyous occasion than to bond over a hearty meal at Sakae Sushi?

In this Entry, I'm gonna share with you my 'Yee Sang Moment' with my blogger friends at Sakae Sushi, 1 Utama.

This year, Sakae Sushi has prepared a great variety of celebration dishes to tantalise taste buds and usher in prosperity. So readers .. lets check it out ..

Sakae Sushi brought you ~ Toss to prosperity with Sakae Sushi's Fortune Salmon Yee Sang. A tantalising Japanese-inspired take on the traditional Yee sang dish, it is masterfully prepared by Sakae’s chefs using luscious and fresh air-flown salmon, accompanied with a variety of authentic Japanese ingredients such as seasoned jellyfish, Mekabu seaweed, radish and more. Sakae’s delectable Yee sang is then topped with a unique and appetising citrus-infused sauce, complementing perfectly with the fresh ingredients used to fully bring out the flavours of the dish.

Diners can also customise the dish according to their personal preference with add-on items such as Salmon Sashimi, Seasoned Scallop, Jellyfish and Mekabu Seaweed – more appetising variety to satisfy different taste buds.

The Fortune Salmon Yee Sang is available in two sizes: Success Yee Sang which serves 2-3 pax priced at RM29.98 and Money Yee Sang which serves 6-8 pax priced at RM56.98 and both are available for Dine-in and Take away. Wow .. look at the price .. very affordable and does not break our wallet, right. Huge savings for your Chinese New Year!

We had the opportunity to toss it together with Ms Yew June, General Manager of Marketing for Sakae Sushi Malaysia. She said ~ Year after year, Sakae Sushi Fortune Yee Sang remains an all-time favourite among Malaysians and it’s easy to tell why. Compared to traditional Yee Sang dishes, it offers an exquisite healthier alternative prepared by the chefs using only the freshest ingredients. Another unique point is the refreshing citrus-infused sauce that is poured over the Yee Sang, which lends it an additional flavoursome edge.

Other than that, Sakae Sushi also brings you a fun -filled, quality and value for money dining experience with the brand new Happiness Treasures Combo priced at RM98 comprising both the Money Yee Sang and a sumptuous variety of mouth-watering sushi selections. This sushi set features a delectable variety of Sakae’s signature sushi favourites such as Hana Maki, California Hoso Maki, Salmon Sushi, Tamago Sushi, Soft Shell Crab Maki, Kani Salad Inari, Mini Ebi Tempura Sushi, Kappa Maki and Kani Maki. Indeed, it is an ideal choice for toasting with relatives and friends over a delightful festive gathering.

Another must-try for this year is the masterfully crafted Golden Abundance priced at RM49.90. Reminiscent of lavish fortune and harmony, this sumptuous platter consists of five signature golden offerings (Soft Shell Crab, Mini Ebi Tempura, Itoyoridai Katsu, Fried Hotate and Tempura Kani) served with a tangy accompaniment of spicy mayonnaise.

Other than that, we also sampled a few more dishes prepared by Sakae Sushi. Ummm I like. I always like Japanese Food, anyway. Kita makan banyak ~ kenyang sampai terlentang. Hahaha.

Dragon Roll ~ RM15.99
Delectable maki creation of crisp golden tempura prawn layered with fresh avocado slices and shrip roe. I love Tempura .. and avoda. Dip it with sweet sauce + soy sauce and little bit of wasabi ~ Yummy!

Salmon Mentaiyaki ~ RM18.99
Grilled Salmon with Cod fish roe. As usual, Salmon is always my favourite *love it*

Hotate Metaiyaki (2 pcs) ~ RM10.99

Salmon Kabuto Nabe  RM19.99

Salmon Cheese Roll ~ RM16.99
Delectable rolls with Salmon, Crabstick, Japanese Omelette & Japanese cucumber topped off with cheese and spicy mayo. I called this soft sushi cos the ingredients inside the roll are all soft and juicy. Nice.

Green Tea Ice Cream with Red Bean Brown Bread Bun
I love the combination. The Green Tea Ice cream is not sweet at all and the Red bean brown bread bun complement the whole taste.

Sakae Sushi’s CNY celebration rewards more than just eager taste buds.

Good song and was perfectly delivered by Akim and The Majistret .. keputusan yang tak perlu dipertikaikan lagi .. masing-masing happy dan berpuashati.

Misz-ella lagi la puashati .. sebab dapat tengok Akim nyanyi LIVE dua kali

Potret is the song that i used to listen to if I can't sleep at night.  Potret is the song that i used to sing at Karaoke dan bila dengar Akim nyanyi LIVE ... OhMy .. suka nya. Tersangat lah suka gila dengan persembahan bertenaga dia.

Main Kaki. Cik Ella busy-busy

Another week has arrived.
How fast times flies, kan.

Another Chapter of my exercise diary -Friday visit to the Gym. Friday is leg day. Just do it, Ella .. dont complain. So there you go .. Jom kita main kaki .. 30kg .. 10, 15, 20.  Gonna increase the weight next week. 30kg tak rasa apa lah.

We are addicted to sweat. Kalau tak berpeluh macam tak syok je. I always love to exercise together instead of alone. More motivation and encouragement. Off course, fun too.

Misz-ella paling tak suka berlari.  But since Threadmill is better than cycling and Cross Trainer .. run Ella run.

My schedule was still tight last week. Journey home by train cos I was lazy to drive. Sampai rumah dah lewat tapi Alhamdulillah .. diberi tahap kesihatan yang baik dan minda yang kuat oleh Allah SWT .. masih boleh senyum walau penat.  Life is a gift by Allah SWT.  Appreciate your life, friends. 

A photo with my 'international friend' Emmy Carter from Mongoose Publication, an Ex-patriate magazine.  Thanks for our Friday moments .. I appreciate.

A photo before we went out for dinner.
