Senjyu Sushi, Cineleisure Damansara

Just a short post today to start off this hectic week :)
Went to Senjyu some time back on a rainy evening- I wanted somewhere not too pack and can grab a bite quickly. Well, the interesting many-green-bottles-hanging-on-the-wall interior got my attention and sorta pulled me in too :p
Bollywood Queen who was with me at that time royally declared that she was not hungry as she had a lots of food during tea time, so the food choice was just mine. Though platters of sushis were readily available on the conveyer belt, I decided to order mine- I like 'em freshly made.
Had the cod and unagi sushi (RM6)
This fared pretty well. The cod and unagi bits were springy and fatty; drizzled with some teriyaki sauce- it goes well with the rice base. Looks so enticing that BQ took a piece of it.
The spider maki (RM8)
Fully expecting the spider crab being wrapped in the rice, it was served on top of the sushi instead. Freshly fried, the spider crab was still warm and crisp. Senjyu serves grated wasabi paste, which goes well with this maki. BQ tried a piece of this too. Hmmm, I thought she was not hungry??
Since BQ had an appetite after all, we ordered the day's special, Chicken Katsu Don (RM6)
Special not because it's the best seller, but special for the day as it was on promotion- ie, cheaper. By now, BQ was eating like she was the hungry one. Quite decent, the chicken pieces were moist and was enveloped with half cooked eggy bits. Lots of onions to give that sweet crunch to the combo. But a tiny bowl though, well, I guess that's why it's RM6 :p
Since it was raining, I wanted something to warm me up...Beef sukiyaki seems to be a nice choice (RM18.90)
I thought the serving was rather petite and we had to wait quite a fair bit for the food to cook. We waited just to get disappointed. I did not like Senjyu's version. The soup was waaayyyyy too sweet..like sickeningly sweet. Can't even drink it to warm my belly. :-(
Senjyu Sushi is located at LotG2&G3 Ground Floor, Cineleisure Damansara. There's also a branch at Sunway Pyramid.

unagi+cod. now that's a good combo! can imagine the rich and sweet taste when combined with teriyaki sauce. they should have a don set with this in the future!

Somehow I suspect the sweetness you're speaking of here ain't the sweetness of the stock but a more cloying, sugary sweet? Yikes. :P

anon: for this one time i've tried, i guess so. they have more interesting sushis..

j2kfm: at RM9.90? might be a small serving then.. :p

nic: it was pretty good! just that it's cut into tiny chunks, it's a tad hard to fully savour the cod and unagi. haha

mimid3vil: you were right. it's a pathetic portion, think 5 thin slices?

kenny: yes, it's those artificial sweetness from the sauces..not from the ingredients.. :(
