2 weeks on.. the mourning continues, the casualty toll well above the 10,000 mark. As recovery efforts continue throughout the affected areas to pick up the pieces from the devastating earthquake and tsunami, as well as containing the damage from the nuclear reactors, we celebrate the resilience and the astounding civility of our Japanese brethren. And there is no better celebration than through its cuisine, for the 3rd consecutive week on this blog.
This week, we head to Ginza Sushi Kyu, situated in a non-descript building next to the ever bustling Bowrington Road Market. Since it was a first visit, we settled for a prix fixe menu with a little of everything, including a platter of the much talked about sushi.

|Assorted Sushi Platter|
|Maki with sweet Japanese pickle|
|Teppanyaki Wagyu Beef|
|Matcha Ice Cream|
Overall, the quality of the produce was impressive, especially given the circumstances. We were told supplies originate largely from Kyushu in the south. Execution might have gotten between a 6 to 7 outta 10, but this place would deserve a repeat visit, and this time, a seat at the sushi bar might be appropriate, if anything to watch the native Japanese chefs show off their craft.
