Aji Otsukuri

Aji Otsukuri aka horse mackere, served in Otsukuri Style.
Aji Otsukuri, national fish of Japan.

Japan’s national fish, Aji, often referred to as horse mackerel, served Otsukuri style with minced ginger and wasabi, was a visual and culinary masterpiece. Perfectly crafted with meticulous precision and elegantly presented to be consumed raw. This dish focuses on showcasing the rich natural umami flavours and freshness of the fish, allowing us to experience the purest taste of the ocean.

Each slice is a firm yet velvety texture and has a subtle pink hue which contrasts beautifully with the pristine white backdrop. The dish’s freshness, tenderness and natural sweetness highlighted the unique umami of Aji and its delicate texture. This is a must-try for foodies who have already tried most common sashimi types. A true testament to the art of simplicity and refinement.

Houbou Otsukuri

Houbou aka Sea Robin or Blue Fin Robin, presented in Otsukuri Style.
Houbou Otsukuri, what exquisite presentation!

This dish is not often served in usual Japanese restaurants because of its rarity and it is also less well-known in the market. I was truly astounded when I tasted this high-quality Sashimi.

Similar to the skillful presentation of Aji Otsukuri, the Houbou, also called Sea Robin, was garnished with delicate accents of shiso leaves, radish, wasabi, and edible flowers, enhancing the visual appeal and overall taste. This dish is seasonal and it depends on whether Mita Sushi has its availability. So I would highly recommend you to call in and enquire whether they have stocks!Β 

This mild fish earned its name because of its darkish-red colour body. With its distinct mix of white and pink colours and a full-bodied texture with a light sweetness, I was pleasantly surprised by the mild sweet taste. The texture is very tender, and the fish may have a firm but not overly dense consistency. Its subtle sweetness and firm chewy taste will make it a delightful choice for sashimi beginners. This is a must try for sashimi lovers!

Bluefin Tuna: Otoro Sashimi

Premium Thick Bluefin Tuna Sashimi
– ‘Marbled, rich and downright heavenly taste’

Then came the Otoro Sashimi, a truly luxurious experience. This was the crème de la crème of Bluefin Tuna and it was marbled, rich, and downright heavenly. Otoro is a prized and highly sought-after cut of tuna, specifically from the belly area near the head of the fish. This is probably the best sashimi I have tasted. The taste of Otoro sashimi is buttery, melt-in-your-mouth, and exceptionally succulent. The high fat (as you can see from the marbling)  contributes to a luxurious and silky texture, while the flavor is both delicate and intensely savory. 

Bluefin Tuna: Negitoro

The real minced tuna! Not fake!

Finally, I tried the Bluefin Tuna Negitoro. No fake Negitoro here; this was the real deal. The minced tuna was incredibly soft and tender, with a natural sweetness that shone through. The combination of the tuna’s natural umami, the creamy texture, and the balance of fat and lean meat creates a unique and delightful flavour profile. I just felt like having more after I have my first taste of this.

Bluefin Tuna: Akami Sashimi

Bluefin Tuna Akami Sashimi
The underrated, often overlooked sashimi you have to try!

Derived from the leanest part of the Tuna, Akami represents the deep red flesh found near the fish’s skin, like a ruby gem, packed with umami and possibly the most underrated Sashimi in Singapore. Akami has a firmer texture compared to Toro. The taste of Bluefin Tuna Akami sashimi is distinct and offers a different experience than the above fatty cuts.

The flavour of Akami is clean, and meaty, and often has a slightly stronger taste compared to toro. It is less buttery but has a distinct richness and a satisfying umami, which is the savoury and high-quality meaty flavor. The texture is firm and may have a bit of chewiness, providing a satisfying bite. It has a rich taste and exquisite firm yet tender texture and the glistening surface of the fish hints at its freshness.Β 

Deluxe Bakumori

Look at it! How do you even start eating!

Upon arrival, Deluxe Bakumori immediately captured our attention with its visually stunning presentation. The dish is meticulously crafted, featuring a towering arrangement of exquisite ingredients stacked like a hill enticing a sense of awe and anticipation. The vibrant colours of the fresh seafood boasts Bafun Bluefin Tuna, Uni (Sea Urchin), Ikura Roe, Tamago was a feast for the eyes. With the rice hidden underneath, the quantity of fish in this dish surpasses that of a typical Kaisen Don.

Each bite was melt-in-the-mouth and a huge burst of flavour goodness, delivering a delightful contrast of textures and tastes. These ingredients are chosen for their exceptional quality and superior taste. Bafun Bluefin Tuna, known for its rich marbling and buttery texture, offers a melt-in-the-mouth velvet smooth experience that is both indulgent and luxurious, while the Uni, provides a creamy contrast. The natural sweetness of the seafood and Ikura Roe made me crave more and wish that only the whole Deluxe Bakumori was filled with just the ingredients.

Nishiki Don

Rich in colors, and flavours of different blends of sashimi in one bowl.

Next, I delved into the aesthetically pleasing Nishiki Don, a stunning medley of sashimi. It featured thickly sliced Maguro, Salmon, Mekajiki (or Hamachi, depending on the catch), Chirashi Sashimi, and Ikura. The Maguro was wonderfully fresh, with a natural sweetness that had me coming back for more. The sashimi was incredibly fresh and tender, practically melting in my mouth. The Ikura Roe, though, that’s where the magic happened. It burst in my mouth, releasing a symphony of flavours that left me in awe. And don’t forget the Tamago – it was the perfect complement to this seafood extravaganza.

 

Mita Sushi Choi Nomi Super Deal from $12

Choi-Nomi Super Deal

Our start of the journey was a delightful combination of comfort food and refreshing drinks. And let me share a fantastic tidbit – there is a Choi-Nomi super deal where you can choose a drink, either sake or Asahi beer, with Nikujaga as one of the options, all for only $12++! It’s an incredible bargain.

Nikujaga x Asahi Beer Combo
Nikujaga – simmered beef and potatoes

We tried two options. One was the cold refreshing Asahi Beer and savoury Nikujaga. Nikujaga, is a dish that’s as comforting as it is delicious. Crafted from Mita Sushi’s secret recipe, it’s a delightful blend of simmered beef and potatoes in a savory soy sauce. The stew was a revelation, rich and deeply flavourful, as though it had been simmering for ages. The beef cubes? They were incredibly tender, and hearty. The carrots, potatoes, and onions were cooked to a soft perfection. Accompanied by the mild bitterness of the cold refreshing Asahi Beer that warms the soul.Β 

Buta Kakuni x Cold Sake Combo
Buta Kakuni – slow cooked braised pork belly

Our other choice was the smooth Cold Sake and tender Buta Kakuni. I enjoyed the succulent tenderness of the slow-cooked braised pork belly which was infused with the essence of soy sauce, mirin, and sake, each bite was extremely satisfying. The delicate and refined Cold Sake offers a harmonious balance between its light sweetness and the natural umami of the braised pork belly.
