Matsu Sashimi @ RM 88.00
A Japanese dish consisting of very thin bite-size slices of fresh raw fish, traditionally served with soy sauce and wasabi.The word "sashimi" is commonly misinterpreted as slices of raw fish but the real meaning of the word is actually "pierced body". A word derive from the culinary practice of sticking the fish's tail and fin to the slices in identifying the fish being eaten.

Senju Tei serves extremely fresh sashimi- tuna, salmon, white tuna, white fish, sweet shrimp, squid and conch. Love the elegant arrangement and the refreshing taste of the sashimi!

Pork Meat Soup (Bak Kee) served with yam rice

Pork meat soup features slices of pork belly, flour dipped thin slices of meat and various offal-y bits in a herbal rich broth accompanied with diner's choice of plain rice or yam rice. Yam rice is a good choice though- Yam was indistinct in the rice, but you wouldn't miss it. Rice texture was perfect, fluffy and satisfying and absolutely blends well with the thick, inky aromatic soup.

Brunching pork meat soup with yam rice on a bright sunny Sunday! A perfect meal before the week ends!

Jalan Kampung Pantai (one block in from Lorong Hang Jebat)
