I have read and heard of Ichiro Sushi Bar one too many times over the years but yet, I have not paid a visit until recently. They have been in current vicinity (inside Isetan Eat Paradise, 1 Utama Shopping Mall) for quite some time now and some said they serve one of the best (and freshest) sushi in town.
The vicinity has a sushi bar and a couple of tables which, at max, able to fit around 20 pax at one time.
The ordering was made easy as there was iPad at each table/ party for their usage. Their menu was simple, no-frills yet it has all the usual, mandatory offerings.
We were there slightly past 2pm which made us missed their lunch menu. We had the kaisen bara chirashi, 3 slices of fresh salmon sashimi, egg nigiri and DX Volcano Roll.
The Kaisen Bara Chirashi (RM28) was filled to the brim with fresh cuts of sashimi, prawns, fish roes, pickled gingers and cucumbers. Underneath all was the sushi rice dosed with slight Japanese soy sauce. Though it was a little steep in price, you would have forgotten about it the moment it arrives in front of you.
The salmon sashimi (RM18 for 3 slices) was thicc and fresh while the DX Volcano Roll (RM32) was exceptionally as it topped with fresh scallops, kani (crab) and a dose of Japanese mayonnaise.
Overall, the meal came to about RM103 (including a cup of cold green tea). Price wise, I guess you get what you paid for and in my opinion, it was definitely worth it though it would not be a weekly nor monthly affair.
