Sushi Tei (すし亭) Restaurant Gurney Plaza Penang

There I was having two lunches at Sushi Tei (すし亭) at the same time. It was unplanned for as usual. My Singaporean friend Wilson Tok and his son Bryan dropped by to have a meal before flying off.

Sushi Tei (すし亭) has sophisticated and beautifully designed interiors. Reservation for a table is strongly recommended during long weekends and public holidays. Most days if you go early you can get a table by the windows.

On sunny days, it’s got a little warm. It’s a good trade for a decent view of Gurney Drive promenade.

The Singaporean dudes who love Sushi Tei (すし亭) has lunch here before going off to the airport!

We sat near the window and lo and behold the Loh sisters were at the next table.

The Loh sisters were overly excited. Guess which sister introduced herself and went all out to entertain my friends! Awkward! I know!

The Loh sisters can EAT. This is their lunch! Tempted? No. Hahahahaha…

How did I survive a double Japanese lunch invited by two sets of friends?

Easy. I just stick with my first appointment.

I’m not a hard-core Japanese food fan. In fact, the few Japanese restaurants I go to, I tend to keep things simple. I make a big show of reading the menu and order a beef sukiyaki most of the time. And the other table had a seafood sukiyaki pot! Tempting.

Unless when I dine at Matsu at the Lone Pine, that’s when we let the chef roll out his creations!

Sushi Tei (すし亭) well-known for serving fresh and delectable sashimi and this is a better Japanese restaurant chain. If you’re a big fan of sushi and sashimi, there are several interesting combinations and some rarely seen sashimi on the menu!

THE CARPACCIO

Wilson ordered the Tuna and Salmon Wafuu Carpaccio. This no-cook starter is easy, impressive and a deliciously fresh way to start a meal.

Served drenched in olive oil and soy, fish tasted fresh and delicious. I checked out the perfectly sliced fish. It was a 2mm even thickness! Great knife skills chef!

Ramen with extra seaweed is good. That’s a Chicken Katsu in the background!

I haven’t had this before so it went very well for a light easy lunch with hot slurpy noodles. The soup was good, sweet and flavourful. I’d often season it with some extra flavoured chilli pepper to give it a kick.

According to Wilson, the outlet Sushi Tei (すし亭) in taste better and is less stingy than the same chain in Singapore. Dollar for dollar conversion, the father and son team gets more in the service here plus the generous seaweed topping is what keeps them as returning customers.

We love the Japanese pickled ginger which we could ask for free to top ups! Good job Sushi Tei (すし亭), we just love the generosity of the management.
