Sushi Azabu, Isetan The Japan Store @Lot10

It has been a while since my last Omakase session. I just miss having a chef in front of me preparing all kinds of amazing food to surprise me. This time this dream was fulfilled at Sushi Azabu which is located at the 4th floor inside Isetan, The Japan Store. Our chef that day was a handsome Japanese guy called Mr. Makoto Saito. 
There are 3 types of Omakase set which starts from RM120++ which is known as Koi, comes with 10 types of unique nigiri sushi. Next is Azabu Course @RM220++, 2 kinds of sashimi, chawanmushi, 7 pieces of nigiri sushi, makimono, palate freshener and a dessert. If you would like something premium, go for Chef's Specialty Course @RM420++. What will be given to you will be a complete surprise. I had Koi course on that day. It was really enough for a small appetite like me.
Supposed to get 10 pieces of different type of nigiri sushi but in the end I just realized that I only get 8 types of sushi
Is it because some of the sushi given to us is using a premium type of fish meat?
I do not have the answer but that's what happened to me and I forgot to calculate the number of sushi served at that time. I have trusted them for being professional without any doubt that they will reduce the number of sushi.
I do not want to make any speculation too about this issue but the fact is I got 8 pieces of nigiri sushi only instead of 10 pieces.
Lesson learned which is be cautious and calculate the number of sushi or sashimi that is served to you. Make sure it is the same as what is written in their menu.
Nonetheless, I still have to give credit to their sushi which is absolutely delicious, fresh and delightful. It was so scrumptious enough which makes you to forget to count the number of sushi. LOL
I believe it is some mistake somewhere which is no deliberately done by the chef. After all, this is a professional omakase Japanese restaurant.
The most unforgettable piece of sushi for me is definitely their Unagi sushi. No bony inside, not too sweet and not too salty which remains the sweetness of the fresh eel itself. Perfect! 
Finally, we had miso soup in the end. No dessert for a happy ending for this course. That's the upset of this course. A scoop of  green tea ice cream won't cost that much, wouldn't it?
Overall, my friend from Mongolia was having a great time at this restaurant. This is her first time experience Japanese cuisine in her first ever visit in Malaysia.

Tamarind Springs @ Jalan TAR, Ampang

Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - It is also known as their signature Symphony of Starters, which takes you across the breadth of Indochinese cuisine with Vietnamese shrimp crystal rolls, lemongrass prawns, Cambodian-style deep-fried shrimp cakes and minced chicken on cinnamon sticks. All served with a variety of piquant sauces. The plate is just nice for 2 pax but the price is too expensive for that small portion.

Outlook: 3/5 Creativity: 5/5 Taste: 4/5 Price: 3/5 Overall: 3/5 - If you think that coconut soup should be a milky soup, then you are wrong. This is a chicken tomyam clear soup with coconut meat in it. Very delicious and creative way to make it. The coconut meat is the highlight of the entire soup. It just gave the soup an extra coconut fragrance in it and of course, they are edible. Do not worry, the soup is not too spicy.

Magnum Cafe @IOI City Mall, Putrajaya

Outlook: 5/5

Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 4/5 - It contains of cashew meringue, Mascarpone cream, honey balsamic cream served with white chocolate dipped vanilla Magnum topped with freeze dried raspberries and fresh strawberries. My suggestion is to mix them all together including the ice cream itself otherwise by eating the ice cream alone will be too sweet. Once you mixed them all together, the magic comes. The sensational taste of creamy, crunchy, a little sourish kick and sweetness combining all together to create a wonderful ice cream dessert. Definitely is a must order dessert when you are there.
