Sushi Tei is a renowned Japanese restaurant chain loved by many for its high-quality dishes and fresh ingredients. With the arrival of spring, the restaurant has launched a seasonal menu called “Haru,” which showcases three premium ingredients: Sakura Dai, Satsuma Wagyu, and Shirakaba Pork. In this blog post, we will take a closer look at Sushi Tei’s Haru menu and what makes it so unique.
Sakura Dai: The Perfect Spring Fish
Sakura Dai is a fish that feeds on cherry blossoms that fall from wild trees growing on Iki Island in Japan. Its flesh is imbued with a lovely fragrance and has a firm, fresh, and floral taste, making it a perfect spring ingredient. Sushi Tei’s Sakura Dai & Hotate Carpaccio is a must-try dish that impeccably pairs the fish with scallop carpaccio and garnishes it with pink pomelo to deliver a refreshing pop.
Satsuma Wagyu: One of the Top Beef Brands in Japan
Satsuma Wagyu is one of Japan’s top four beef brands, created by 12 Master Wagyu farmers. It comes from a breed of cattle raised on the beautiful island of Ibusuki and has a superb texture and beautiful marbling. Sushi Tei’s Truffle Satsuma Wagyu Steak is a dish that gloriously showcases the meat. The striploin is pan-fried to a golden-brown crust and boasts a juicy centre. A piquant truffle sauce further enlivens the already incredible flavour of the meat.
Shirakaba Pork: A Delicious and Nutritious Dish
Shirakaba Pork is named after the Shirakaba Tree, a white birch that is said to relieve stress. The pigs are raised in Hokkaido, which has a cold climate that creates a stress-free environment. Pork is a source of vitamins B1, B2, B6, and iron and is also delicious. Sushi Tei’s Shirakaba Buta Yaki Nabe is a unique yakiniku sauce hotpot brimming with sliced pork belly and a medley of mushroom, tofu, enoki mushroom, carrots, and more.
Other Dishes That Highlight the Best of Spring Ingredients
Sushi Tei’s Haru menu also includes other dishes highlighting the best spring ingredients. The Yuzu Kaisen Hiyashi Udon is a comforting dish that sees cold udon paired with an assortment of seafood. Pulling all the ingredients together is a refreshing and fragrant yuzu sesame sauce. The Aburi Kaisen Inari Sushi are little parcels filled with half-broiled salmon, baby scallops, and spicy mayonnaise that promise bursts of sweetness. The bite-sized deep-fried scallops in the Kobashira Shoga Tempura are highly addictive and made even better thanks to the accompanying ginger sauce. End the meal on a high note with the Ichigo Daifuku, strawberry-flavoured mochi filled with cream that promises a pillowy and chewy bite.
