Sushi Ori was established by Chef Ori-san in Menara Keck Seng in the heart of KL city after leaving Sushi Oribe. Omakase and sushi lovers would have tried Chef Ori's handmade sushi as he always source the best ingredients to bring the real Japanese taste of sushi for his guests. The art of sushi are crafted with Japanese "Omotenasi" and "Takumi" techniques. Chef uses "Red Shari", sushi rice mixed with red vinegar which is the traditional sushi rice of the Edomae sushi (Edo-style sushi). This time, we went for the Special Omakase, Omakase Kohaku Menu (RM780/pax) that comes with appetizer, steamed egg custard, special sushi, miso soup and dessert. Check out their Menu here.

Murasaki Uni & Bafun Uni.

Shima Aji with Yuzu Koshu (Striped Jack)

Otoro (Fatty Tuna)
Comment: My favorite one as usual because of its fatty and oily texture that straight melts in my mouth
Japanese Tiger Prawn from Okinawa
Comment: Firm and crunchy in texture with a sweet flavor
Mini High Cholesterol Bowl
Comment: No doubt Chef's signature high cholesterol bowl is still good with all the premium ingredients in it but it is so tiny.
Anago (Sea Eel) from Nagasaki
Comment: Soft, fatty that melts in the mouth, very sweet flavor. Pretty good!
Comment: Sweet taste but nothing special
The dessert was melon, I forgot to take a photo of it. Overall, the ingredients are acceptable. Remarked a few times that I wanted really special items instead of the usual nigiri that I had in other restaurants but it doesn't meet my expectation in terms of special omakase. The quality of the dishes look pretty similar to the one I had during my first visit. You may check out Here.
