Sagano is nothing new in MIGF as they had participate in MIGF for many years. This year Sagano comes with their new chef Souf Chef Mohd Zamri together with his culinary team at Sagano Restaurant has lined up a 4-course Festival Menu that is sure to tantalize the tastebuds. Quiet and unassuming, Chef Zamri prefers to let his culinary creations do the talking. Using both local and imported ingredients, Chef Zamri emphasizes on the importance of presentation and says that food has to look authentic and alive where textures, tastes and colours have to be in balance in order to please all senses.
This time, we sample some of the creation from Chef Mohd Zamri where it gives us suprises too. We started with the Fuji maki (富士ロール) which brings us with the winter sensation of delights. The maki is well made with the bright pinky texture. It is just melts in the mouth and the light taste sensation is just perfect as it is.
Steamed eel and tofu with sticky spinach sauce (鰻と豆腐のほうれん草餡かけ) is another dish which is served in the menu.The presentation was very appealing where the steamed eel and tofu is at the centre of the dish and the serving is served with the bed of the sticky spinach sauce. Soft texture tofu and eel which is simply fresh, just melts into our mouth. The sauce is also very refreshing and healthy combination to go for as well.
Grilled cod stuffed with potato in honey teriyaki (銀だらポテト焼き) is another mains we tried. The fresh grilled cod fish is well grilled till perfection and each mouthful of the grilled fish is just superb. Juicy and flaky on its texture, the grilled fish had made it to my favorites with the light sweet bites.
We ended with the sweet delights. The Sesame ice cream and maccha mousse (胡麻のアイスクリームと抹茶ムース). The delicious sweet sensation of Japanese Delights ended our meals with a sweet smile.
