We were eyeing Genki Sushi for quite a while ever since they opened. Initially, the menu had very few choices and also quite expensive. It seems that quite a while of not having many customers, they finally decided to widen the variety. Surprisingly, when we went on Labour's Day 1 May 2019, there were quite a number of people. I guess for eateries, it seems more exciting to have more people as it signifies that the food is good. Most of the customers were families with kids due to the train.
The excitement of the train to serve the food means that we sit anxiously with the camera with the video mode on. I think I only got the video right after so many takes, and also with other people's orders.
Most cold and hot food are delivered by the train except the set meals. Green Tea cost RM 1.80 per glass and you get the train to deliver the cups to you, this also saves too much cost on manpower of waiters. We just need to mix the matcha powder ourselves and pour hot water.
Aburi Sushi Set (RM 29.80)
The sushi set is quite worth the price paid as it came with miso soup, chawanmushi, salad, croquette and 6 pieces of sushi which were mostly salmon or prawn based with mentai, which is rare for set meals to have all the seafood included and normally have some cheap items like cucumber california rolls.
Salmon Kama Karaage (RM 5.80)
The deep fried salmon was quite tasty, juicy and crispy. We saw many people ordering chicken karaage but I didn't because didn't think it was special enough to order karaage. Moreover, the salmon had promotion at RM 5.80 instead of RM 10.80
Soft Shell Crab Maki (RM 6.80)
The maki is quite big and has a lot of ingredients inside and definitely much better than Sushi Zanmai whereby the sushi rice has some harder bits.
Spicy Salmon Maki (RM 6.80)
This is simply to die for, so amazingly delicious! They are quite generous with the salmon and ingredients too.
Dai Man Zoku (RM 4.80)
The highlights here are the Dai Man Zoku which are sushi with bigger slices and little rice! It reminds me of my time in Osaka, for Malaysia, it is something one could only eat at expensive fine dining Japanese restaurant, but Genki Sushi has made it affordable! We ordered Unagi and Hamachi (Yellowtail) which were so fresh and just delectable to have the silky smooth fish on the tongue.
The normal sushi like Smoked Kamo Gunkan (RM 3.80) was a tad too salty so try not to order this.
Chuka Hotate (RM 3.80) was normal, the only thing I like about it was it has little rice for all the sushi here.
Our meal came up to total of RM 81.20 including service surcharge RM 7 and 6% service tax of RM 4.20
