My visit: Finally checked out this popular sushi restaurant for lunch after hearing so much about it ever since its opening back in February. We went with the 12 piece premium sushi set for $490 and sat at the sushi bar watching chef Ah Do prepare our meal. Upon the 12 pieces, some of my favorites were the tsubugai which was lean, crunchy and refreshing. The shiroebi was extremely creamy and sweet in flavour. On the other hand, the karuma ebi was lightly heated and medium rare, magnifying the sweetness of the shrimp. Autumn means sanma season and the sanma at Sushi Gin was delicious. It was oily, rich in taste and was beautifully combined with grated ginger to balance out the bold flavour of the red-flesh fish. The Hokkaido scallop with cheese and maguro with nori and sesame sauce were more playful pieces but worked surprisingly well together.
Verdict: Sushi Gin features sleek and comfortable interiors with a view of the Happy Valley racecourse and they serve good quality handmade sushi with quirky surprises. Their lunch set is certainly worth a try.
Happy eating 🙂
