    Matsu Sashimi @ RM 88.00

    A Japanese dish consisting of very thin bite-size slices of fresh raw fish, traditionally served with soy sauce and wasabi.The word "sashimi" is commonly misinterpreted as slices of raw fish but the real meaning of the word is actually "pierced body". A word derive from the culinary practice of sticking the fish's tail and fin to the slices in identifying the fish being eaten.

    Senju Tei serves extremely fresh sashimi- tuna, salmon, white tuna, white fish, sweet shrimp, squid and conch. Love the elegant arrangement and the refreshing taste of the sashimi!
