Son no. 2 and I took advantage of the groupon offer on at Sushi Corner in the Sofitel last night. He had just taken part in a rugby tournament and scored a try so I figured he deserved it. I've never really eaten sushi before, other than your normal California roll, but based on my experience last night I definitely will go back. I'm trying to eat healthy so it worked for me, and was so tasty and fresh it couldn't be wrong, but felt like a naughty treat 👌
We ordered the platter (shown below). The spicy salmon (on the right) was aaaaahmazing! Just the right amount of heat without distracting from the taste of the salmon. The textures were stunning and we could have eaten just those and been happy. The octopus was son's choice but I felt I should live a little and try one - it was tender and perfectly prepared. The California rolls were unlike anything I've eaten before - the rice was interspersed with something crunchy and sour and I'd love it if someone could educate an ignorant like me and tell me what it was!
We also had Katsu chicken which was hot and deliciously cooked with a hint of lemon, and chicken skewers which were to die for. I didn't get a look in really as son 2 devoured 2 to my one.
The staff were attentive but not over the top. Regularly brought over tea and asked us if we were happy with our food once or twice.
I paid AED 150 for my voucher which gave us aed 300 to spend, and as we ate quite a bit, I paid an extra AED 100. Well worth it in my opinion. We will definitely go back, but son 2 needs to score another try first 😊🏈
