In one of my earlier posts I shared a lunch experience at Sushi Fuku-Suke (check it out here) and promised another post on my dinner experience at a later date. So here you go…
After a long, tiring work week we decided to reward ourselves to a nice Japanese dinner. As I was mentally going through a list of restaurants I’ve been wanting to try, hubby suggested our favorite Sushi Fuku-Suke. Knowing this Japanese sushi restaurant consistently serves delicious and quality food, I didn’t protest to his suggestion.
For dinner, Sushi Fuku-Suke offers 2 omakase’s, one with sushi only ($800 set) and the other sushi and sashimi ($1200 set). Omakase means “entrust” in Japanese and leaving it to the chef to select and serve you seasonal items, quality produce and innovative dishes.
Having only a had a light lunch earlier in the day, we were both ready to take on the sushi and sashimi omakase…
I recommend sitting at the sushi bar.
Umeshu on the rocks is my drink of choice at Japanese restaurants.
The appetizer – Akagai (Arc shell) with grated Nagaimo (Japanese yam), and seaweed. The citric flavors really get your appetite going.
Assorted sashimi – Chutoro (Medium-fat tuna belly), Tako (Octopus), Ebi (Shrimp), Shima Aji and Hokkigai (Surf clam). My favorite’s were the Chutoro and Tako.
Shirako (cod milt) – aka cod sperm sacs. Yes, I admit the idea of this is a bit strange, but we eat salmon roe, so the concept is similar, right? My verdict … the cooked shirako didn’t taste weird at all, in fact I didn’t mind it.
They took the shrimp head from the sashimi and fried it with batter, served with lemon.
Flounder Kelp Sushi
Chawanmushi with Salmon Roe and Sea Urchin. The salmon roe balanced the fullness of the smooth custard.
Assorted Japanese pickles
Hotaru Ika Tempura – Firefly squid which glows in the dark and is in season from Mar – May.
Alfonsino Fish Sushi
This beautiful takuan and tuna roll looks like a flower.
Pen shell sushi with yuzu and salt.
Grilled wagyu beef served with whole grain mustard and salt.
… grilled to perfection.
Japanese Glass Shrimp Sushi
Aji Sushi (Japanese Jack Mackerel)
Uni Sushi (Sea Urchin). This rich and creamy delicacy is one of my favorites.
This Otoro melts in your mouth, and is truly exquisite.
This small hot pot of tofu, mushroom, wakame seaweed, fish and crab is simmered in a savory broth.
A slice of Japanese melon was a sweet ending to a heavenly omakase.
I’m sure my words aren’t giving this meal the justice it deserves, but I hope these photos should be enough to convince you how great the omakase at Sushi Fuku-Suke is.

Great photos, it all looks very tempting!!
Thanks @hklovebites! The food is as good as (if not better) than it looks in the photos!
Oooo… and how do you get the VIP discount? ;b
They offered us the VIP card in appreciation of our support of their restaurant during the time of the Fukushima nuclear plant meltdown (2011 Great East Japan Earthquake). But, I know that they do credit card discounts from time to time, you can call and ask if they are doing any promotions when you make reservations 🙂
Aaah, it makes sense re the offering of the VIP card in 2011. I actually go that fairly regularly, usually for weekend lunch. It’s a place that didn’t blow me away immediately but I’ve come to like it a lot the more I go. 🙂
