It was more than 3 years ago when we accidentally discovered this little gem. It was during a time when the Causeway Bay building where Sushi Fuku-Suke is located was filled with Japanese restaurants. After the Japan tsunami, many of those restaurants closed down, but Sushi Fuku-Suke withstood this period where Hong Kong people were afraid to eat Japan-imported food. And I believe it had everything to do with the authentic and consistently quality food they serve and doing it at reasonable prices. To this day, this is a restaurant we keep going back to when we feel like good quality Japanese food.
Don’t get me wrong, you’re not paying Genki Sushi prices and getting Inagiku quality at this place, but I assure you, the price you pay is definitely worth what you get. Lunches are always more affordable when eating Jap food, and lunch sets at this joint runs between HKD 165-300. I highly recommend trying the Sushi Fuku-Suke Assorted Sushi on Rice set. This chirashi set comes in a wooden box filled with perfectly seasoned sushi rice and covered with sashimi flowing over the ends of the box. You can see from the above photo, the fish in this chirashi aren’t chopped up into small chunks, but instead, are thin slices of very fresh fish. Ladies, be aware, there is a mountain of rice in the box, and the rice is so delicious you wouldn’t be able to stop eating it. Today I was feeling especially hungry so opted to for this yummy set [hahaha, yes thats my excuse for eating so many carbs]!
Recently, Sushi Fuku-Suke added a new option to their lunch menu, a 10-piece self-select sushi set. They’ve always had sushi sets were the sushi was chosen by the chef, but this new option allows sushi lovers to pick their favorite fish. Your selection of fish is pretty standard, with a few options that are daily specials written in Japanese. If you sit at the sushi bar, the sushi chef’s will translate them or the wait staff will happily let you know what they are.
Their sets include a small fresh salad (and today it was drizzled with a citrus-soy dressing), a cold appetizer, Chawanmushi (steamed egg custard), miso soup and a dessert (today it was a cantaloupe jelly).
The simple decor makes this restaurant feel modern and comfortable. The sushi bar seats around 8-10 ppl [sorry, I never counted], and there are also window seats where you have a view of Hysan across the street. I prefer the sushi bar, as I get to watch the chef’s prepare sushi.
Though I’ve also had dinner here, I’ll save this for a separate blog post, as I feel like I have been rambling on for too long already. Just so you know, they serve omakse and a-la-carte for dinner.
So that’s it folks, my first blog about a restaurant adventure in Hong Kong. This wasn’t the first restaurant I’ve been to since I started this blog, but I figured I should start with one my favorite restaurants. I know I RAVED about this restaurant, but it’s only because it’s really that good. And I want to assure you, I will only post my honest opinions. You will notice that the photo above was taken at a different date than the ones below, that’s because I found an older photo (above) that had better lighting than the ones I took today (below). After writing this post, I realize I need to improve on with my description of food and decor, so thanks for for being tolerant of my writing.
Oh ya, and I guess I should put in a disclaimer that I paid for my own meal.
