Have you tried the poke bowl yet? Staying true to the origins of this healthy dish, Sushi Tei’s poke bowl menu includes fresh raw fish and vegetables and power packed seeds and nuts, sitting atop healthy premium Japanese Akita brown rice.
Poke is a raw fish salad served as an appetizer in Hawaiian cuisine, and sometimes as a main course. Paired with 3 sauces selection (wafuu onion sauce, apple sauce, and wasabina sauce) that are specially created to complement the freshness of the ingredients, while giving it an appetizing twist, poke bowl is a simple and nutritious meal in a bowl that is sure to keep you going for the rest of your day.
Fresh chunky tuna takes center stage in the Maguro Poke Bowl (RM23.80) which is complemented with nutritious chia and melon seeds, gluten free and nutrient-rich almonds, crab stick, mixed vegetables and Akita brown rice. While the Ebi Poke Bowl (RM27.80) features fresh tiger prawns, chia and Vitamin E packed sunflower seeds, almonds, shredded omelette and mixed vegetables with Akita brown rice.
Bringing a different take to the original Hawaiian raw fish dish, Sushi Tei offers meat lovers the Chicken Teri Poke Bowl (RM18.80) that comes with grilled chicken served on Akita brown rice complete with power packed chia and sunflower seeds, almond and mixed vegetables.
This is my personal favourite choice, Salmon Poke Bowl (RM21.80) featuring thick cubes of salmon which is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, together with chia and melon seeds, almonds, nutritious black beans and mixed vegetables on top of Akita brown rice.
Those wanting a heartier noodle dish can choose the comforting Namako Yasai (RM21.80). This kitano miso-based soup is served with a choice of udon, soba or ramen and topped with vegetarian sea cucumber, button mushrooms, pumpkin and Japanese sweet potato.
My favourite freshly prepared Avocado Yasai Roll (RM13.80), maki sushi with avocado and vegetable roll topped with black bean, another delicious addition to Sushi Tei’s healthy menu.
For those who like beancurd skin based maki sushi can opt for the Inari Yasai Roll (RM13.80), with vegetable roll and crunchy edamame on top as delicious garnishing.
Sushi Tei’s vegetarian menu also serves up great side dishes such as this Satsuma Imo To Kabocha Salad (RM7.80), which is made from Japanese sweet potato with pumpkin, that is high in antioxidants and dietary fibre. Sushi Tei’s healthy delicious vegetarian menu is specially curated by their chefs using the finest produce they have, fresh off the farm.
If you are fans of natto, a traditional Japanese food made from fermented soy bean that has acquired taste because of its powerful smell, strong flavor, and slimy texture, then this Okura Natto To Yamaimo Senggiri (RM6.80) may suit your tastebuds perfectly, a dish of Japanese yam with lady finger slices, seaweed, soy bean to be mixed in with a half boiled quail egg.
These crunchy deep fried Croquettes (RM8.80 – RM9.80) are really addictive to snack on, with flavours like Edamame, Pumpkin, and Sweet Potato.
Sushi Tei believes in serving fresh and healthy food to their customers, a commitment that is reflected in their new menu. Whether it is a low-calorie poke bowl bursting with goodness or the vegetarian options, fresh ingredients are paramount to Japanese cuisine and Sushi Tei does not compromise on food safety.
