Sushi Junction continues to be my favourite when it comes to relishing authentic Japanese cuisine. Their food quality is superiors, packaging is clean and attractive and they always deliver on time. (Unlike other “Sushi specialising places”).
They recently opened an outlet in Vasant Vihar and have introduced a new range of pokebowls, so as expected, I could not be far behind in exploring dishes.
Red Curry Chicken Dumpling: I have a thing for simplicity and unadorned items, so these dimsums are definitely “my” thing. The fine chicken mince with salt and subtle condiments is densely packed in a sticky starchy skin which is crystal clear. Please do not expect any extra spiciness or hotness though you have an option to dip these beauties in the creamy Thai red curry sauce. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Rainbow Sushi Roll: The goodness or rather the “meatiness” of the whole non-vegetarian sushi kingdom – tuna, salmon, prawns and crabs packed into these vibrant rolls is something which often comes in the dreams of many sushi lovers. Add to it, the creaminess of avocado, the subtlety and slight sournessof sticky rice doused in vinegar – we have a volcano of flavours. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Prawn Pokebowl: The term “explosion of flavours” is more pronounced here with no subtlety at all. The tempura fried prawn is chewy and fresh and along with the freshly chopped mangoes, daikon (Japanese raddish), cucumber, papaya, tomatoes and onions presented a lovely bowl meal. Not to forget the spicy mango puree and the cool mint dip. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
A delivery only Japanese outlet, Sushi Junction has taken the lead amongst the places serving authentic and quality Sushi with excellent service and rates. The second time I decided to explore Sushi was from here only and after having one roll, I could not stop myself from placing the order again and again.
Apart from sushi, the place also delivers other Japanese staple and trust me, when you order them, you will not complain.
The packaging is sophisticated and classy. The sushi boxes are adorable with cute little containers for the wasabi, soy sauce and pickled ginger.
During my recent binging from this place, I tasted the following items:
Fried Chicken Karaage: At first look, you will have apprehensions about this one. But let those chicken chunks visit your palate and then bask in the magic. The light crusty exterior is slightly chewy probably because it is fried in flour and the chunky succulent interior will melt into your mouth in no time. The subtle hints of garlic and soy sauce are add on. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Egg fried rice Yakimeshi combo salad: Before tasting this, I always assumed that Japanese dishes are tasteless and weird. But hell no! This one was so flavourful with every morsel screaming about the explosion of ingredients. The finely chopped bell peppers and French beans, caramelized onions, small soft chunks of chicken and eggs with well fried rice and no abhorrent odour are enough to leave anyone in a food coma. The chickpea salad with cherry tomatoes was raw and compliments the soft rice. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Veg Red Dragon Sushi Roll: Those crusty tempura flakes really make this a BOMB! The soft yet slightly crispy sticky rice enclosing crunchy asparagus, cucumber and carrots with the subtle sweet and salty flavours topped with tempura flakes and chopped spring onions can leave anyone spellbound. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Bourbon Sake Sushi Roll: When a Sushi roll is named after the smoothest drinks – Bourbon and Sake (Japanese Rice Wine), you do expect that smoothness to burst up in that sushi roll. This one is a crab stick and fish roe roll topped with smoked salmon. Every bite oozes freshness and lightness with slight sweet hints. The salmon is soft and good to dig into but is slightly salty. The crunchy cucumber compliments the soft salmon and crab. RECOMMENDED.
