Sosaku – My new favorite for Sushi

When friends post foodpics on Facebook I will either think “oh, how unspectacular” or “OMG OMG I WANT THIS”. The latter applied when I saw images of Sosaku, a place with experimental Sushi. Now getting a table there was a pain. I first called somewhere around 9PM on a weekday, but the phone was dead… I kept on trying for the next 2 hours as it was open until 11PM. Still, dead… next day, 6PM and suddenly it worked. And a table was left.

Finally we went there for dinner. The place is pretty small and the lighting too dark. Take that as an excuse for the quality of the following pics…

I ordered the king crab soup as a starter. It contained tiny pices of crab legs, pak choi and shitake mushrooms. Good flavor, but a bit too salty. Then we ordered six sorts of Sushi rolls, not sure about the appropriate amount per person.

Now let me tell you, 2 rolls per person are just fine. We had the Tuna Tempura, To-Die-For, Rockstar, Atlantis, Softshell crab and King crab. Seriously good! My favorites were the Softshell crab, To-Die-For (with all kinds of stuff) and Rockstar (with shrimp tempura). Amazing stuff. Would have been a great end of the evening, but I can’t leave a restaurant without trying desserts.

The pic above shows Pandan panacotta. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Pandan flavor! Of course this was my favorite.

Matcha Tiramisu, quite good actually!

Banana Won ton – good, but not as good as the other two.

All in all I really loved the food. The desserts were a bit less spectacular than one would assume after the Sushi, but nevermind. Now I wished I actually had tried the experimental Sushi at DOTS, but all I had there so far were the regular Nigiri-Sets. For this reason I can’t really compare both places, but I will surely go to Sosaku again… and again… and yes, I highly recommend it.
