Akira Sushi

Akira Sushi is a newly opened sushi bar at the 4th Floor of Wisma
Sanyan, Sibu. It’s the first one to feature the revolving sushi bar
style dining experience here. I have been meaning to check out this
place so I went there for dinner with my girlfriend.

The eating establishment isn’t very large in terms of size, but
that’s not surprising since space at Wisma Sanyan is rather limited and
seems to be allocated and constructed wholesale for retail outlets. The
place was near seating capacity when we were there.

We only had sushi – the offerings from the sushi bar, so I cannot
comment on their other cooked menu items. The menu even has the
obligatory numbering system so that even the most intellectually
challenged amongst us can place an order.

There is also another sushi specific menu plastered on the wall,
lest people unfamiliar with this style of dining get the price confused.

There are a wide range of beverages on offer, including sake, but it’s priced on the high side, so I settled for Asahi instead.

Beer and sushi…mmm…made my stomach feel funny. πŸ˜‰

Here’s what we ate:

akira crab
This is my favourite one…I haven’t seen it in other places, perhaps
it’s this establishment’s signature dish, er…sushi. This sushi has
two deep fried whole real crabs as the topping. My gf would have nothing to do with it though.

akira squid
I love this one as well…it’s squid, I think. My gf would have nothing
to do with this as well either, coz it’s “slimy”. I like slimy stuff.

akira tuna
She ate the more conventional sushi offerings like tuna…

akira unagi
Unagi topped concoction. She chose it and I had one. It’s good. Smoked eel.

akira octopus
This one is octopus, one of my favourites.

akira prawn
Here’s a prawn sushi.

akira ginger
Picked ginger pieces are available from the revolving bar. I was
pleased to see this. I’m used to eating one after each different sushi
to “wash out” the taste of the previous one and have a clean palate for
the next one. Pretentious terms, I know, I know, but seriously, that’s
what it’s good for. πŸ˜‰

Here’s another photo of the revolving sushi bar…

and a photo of a girl I accidentally took opposite us. She looks like a happy diner.

Our meal came to RM 35, and that isn’t expensive at all.

My only gripe is that some of the items on offer seem stale and the
sushi chef did not “cycle” out the stale ones, nor did he add new items
to the sushi bar fast enough. Otherwise, it’s a great place to go if
you’re after a sushi bar dining experience, cramped as it may be. πŸ™‚

Genki genki sushi sushi

Greetings Earthlings! These are the photos from Genki Sushi
yesterday, read them and weep! Yes, that doesn’t make no sense, but
neither does anything else in life. πŸ™‚ Anyway, a prelude before the
pictures, I took unpaid leave (again) today to wash my laundry since it
won’t dry if I take leave tomorrow and people who knows me in real life
can attest that my wardrobe is rather limited, to say the least. πŸ˜‰ I
don’t buy clothes, it’s not how I choose to use my expenditure. But,
sushi! That’s what we’re talking about now. Here are the photos from
Genki Sushi:


Some sushi with chicken on drop and which I dropped promptly the
moment I picked it up. We also got something like this, but didn’t take
a photo.


Some deep fried parcel like things.


Something that looks like moshi and it’s sweet.


Salmon sushi, we think, there is one with a different shade of red.


Genki Satay. Or something. Tastes like chicken. Lost the receipt so I dunno wat it’s actually called. Very aerodynamic.


Green tea that can be refilled with a tap labelled “Hot” on the table. Nifty. Quick I have to be fast.


Obscene radioactive sauce with liberal wasabi (not made by me). My
friend went “Johnson & Johnson No more tears” went and ate one
slathered with this. Indeed, no more tears. Myself, first try made me
cry. Fared better on the second endeavor. Desensitized after that. πŸ™‚


Tempura. Done!

Anyway, I shall throw down the gauntlet and ask if I can finish my
work at my company before 12 pm and then go to (client’s place) to
finish my work there and then leave to ensure that I can make it to the
airport on time. I don’t know, personally, I think that’s pushing it
quite a bit and it reflects badly on me, since I’m basically a new
employee on my first job, and the IT industry is not exactly booming
now due to outsourcing to countries with citizens who will accept lower
pay for similar results like India and China.

However, if I’m ever going to taper off my pharmacopoeia I’m going
to have to STOP worrying about everything and chant “Que sera sera”.
Come on now, do it with me!

Que sera sera
Whatever will be will be
The future’s not ours to see
What will be, will be!


Let’s go to Melbourne! They have this e-visa thing going on now. Now
where did I put my reference number? Nevermind, let’s go to Melbourne
