Empire SushiA wide selection of sushi from Empire Sushi (2 March, 2017)

A review of Empire Sushi

2 March, 2017
I had a chance to review the items from Empire Sushi at a blogger gathering today. We met at the Empire Sushi outlet at Gurney Plaza, and were served a wide selection of sushi. We were given to try a wide selection of their most popular pieces.

What I like about Empire Sushi is that the rice is incredibly moist. I can't say the same for some sushi outlets, where the rice is too dry and tends to fall apart. In addition to that, I also found that the sushi is mostly tasty enough that I do not need to dip them into soysauce or wasabi. I am aware that some people seem to find "dipping into soysauce and wasabi" to be a must for their sushi, but I feel, when the sushi is really fresh and tasty, you ought to enjoy them on their own. That way, you get to taste the ingredients without getting them masked by the strong taste of soysauce and wasabi.

I also like the cups they use for their hot green tea. These are the more modern paper cups, which are ribbed, so that you can easily hold them without burning your fingers. I know more and more outlets are switching to this, more expensive type of paper cups, and I felt it is worth the while.
