I am no big fan of sushi but am always fascinated by the shapes and colours of sushi. I found the taste of sushi pleasant especially when the ingredients are fresh but it doesn't excite me the way food with umami flavours and wok hei does.
Still, good sushi is a welcome change once in a while, and I always enjoy watching colourful sushi glide around on conveyor belts in sushi joints ever since such an ingenious contraptions appeared in Singapore in the 1980s.
So when Sushi King invited me to try out their Chinese New Year menu at the Sushi King outlet at KSL City Mall in Johor Bahru, I gladly accepted.
I had a great food photography and food tasting outing at the cheery restaurant. Everything I tasted today was fresh as you will see in these pictures.

Sushi King Yu Sang Set RM38.88
We got to try out Sushi King's version of yu sang for the coming Chinese New Year.
Sushi King's yu sang is a good way to start off the New Year with good wishes for all our friends tossing up our good luck together.
Yu Sang noodle set RM16.88
Sushi King also offers Yu Sang noodles which is also a good way to usher in the Chinese New Year.
