If you just saw photos of the food alone, you would think that you were looking at dishes from an expensive 5 star hotel. It is an almost surreal experience, dining on such exquisite pieces, but surrounded by the hustle, bustle and smells of an outdoor food court. Chef Heng explained the design process he goes through to create such delightful compositions. While Chinese himself, but with his essential sushi training in Japan, in true Nippon style he plans every detail of each sushi masterpiece before constructing it. Drawing minute details, considering flavours, textures, shapes, colour and balance, the work of sushi making is approached with the passion of an artist.
On our first culinary adventure with Chef Heng we gave him a budget and asked him to serve us whatever he pleased. Pictured above you’ll see a variety of sushi and sashimi plates. The butterfish sashimi was so fresh and, well, buttery that it will be on my order every time I return. And, I was so impressed with the strawberry, avocado & mixed seafood artwork that I couldn’t help but including two photos of that one dish. We finished with a surprise radish wrapped piece that was refreshing and a perfect end to an artful meal.
Chef Heng also does catering for functions. He can bring his whole tool kit to your event and work his magic on site. Most dishes on his menu range from 10 – 40RM. With incredible food and unbeatable prices, Sushi Heng is my pick for the best of The Yum List for 2011.
