Japanese Food


I would praise the awe-inspiring sushi with a whimsical twist and bet you would sit down to a sushi dinner next time, before long you will modify your words and phrases like toro, chu toro, o toro, maguro, akami and more, let’s plunge upon truth I, happened to go to a Japanese corner for first time, and was literary amazed to see all what I felt, usually I would end my day with some typical desi or Chinese at times to live another day.But how Japanese food shook my nerves was incredible, after loads of work I was tired and famished of food and sleep, utterly esurient, plodding through the menu of pure Japanese list my mind clicked for sushi as raw fish is more than common and fish lovers do not put their hands onto any other except raw.


I’m open-minded about my food and understand that raw fish is not high on everyone’s list, so kudos to them for finding a way to bring sushi to the masses, even with non-traditional items like marinated beef or teriyaki chicken rolls. With some amazing creations such as their Unagi, eel, foie, gras, and their Matsuzaka, beef sushi. On their tails, Honomono and Maru also get fresh cuts of tuna and other delicacies, and you won’t be complaining about the bill if you are feasting on the top sushi tuna slices that are melting in your mouth.The listings of Japanese are so numerous, one could probably just stroll down and pop in to a new eatery for months and not go wrong.

In Park Lane, arrived at 3:05 pm and got seated promptly at the table around the grill by a very friendly waitress, while deciding on what to order. I was not completely satisfied in taking a crack at Japanese recipes. I spoke to the same friendly waitress about it, she was quite humble and shared her experience with me taking the food I ordered Marionese Nigri Platter, Chicken Katsu, Red Snapper Tapanyaki, Vegetable Tapanyaki and Sticky Garlic Rice with O-cha tea in the end as I am a great tea lover and loves to experience different kinds of tea flavors. It took a while before the entrees were served. I watched the chef cook the dishes in front of me. He was as friendly as the waitress and courteous as well. The food was worth the wait. Dishes were delicious and authentically flavored. Neither the chicken nor the fish were over-cooked. I added some more of that ginger dressing to my dish, which really brought it up a notch and sauces like stake lemon (Punzu), chili sauce which they made themselves, and that’s their specialty.


Marianese Nigri Platter, included Tuna, Red Snapper, Salmon, Crab, Eel, Crunchi Maki Nigiri is a type of Sushi made of thin slices of raw fish over pressed vinegared rice.Accompanied by Pickled ginger, wasabi and soy sauce, garnished with a sauce, mostly occasionally if the chef so fancies, eaten with hands or chopsticks. Nigiri in Japanese means two fingers (ni = two, giri= fingers). Nigiri sushi gets its name from the rice which has to be of a very specific portion and fit on the chef’s “two fingers” when pressing. Sushi is a Japanese term that refers to anything made with vinegared rice.

Chicken Katsu: A Japanese dish breaded with deep fried chicken, cutlet one to two centimeters thick that is sliced into bite-sized pieces or strips

Prawn Tapanyaki: A style of Japanese cuisine that uses an iron griddle to cook food, since the word teppanyaki is derived from teppan, which means iron plate, and yaki, which means grilled, broiled, or pan-fried. Modern teppanyaki grills are normally propane-heated flat surface grills and are widely used to cook food in front of guests at restaurants because a solid griddle type cook surface is more suitable for smaller ingredients, such as rice, egg, and finely chopped vegetables.


Sticky garlic rice: Every single grain is laced with that garlicky goodness that just bursts in your mouth.

O-cha tea (green tea) after an arduous working day on would surely go for it, a perfect blend brings you back to life, best to have with dinner. It keeps you vigilant.

Though food was extremely amaze-balls but Asian Aroma is hole-and-cornered, also the food is expensive and not accessible for a mediocre still you would surely cheer, If you walk into a sushi buffet or a sushi spot, Asian Aroma, this is what you’re likely to encounter. That’s not to say that raw can’t be excellent, it’s just tuna has win my heart, so now sushi is calling you.
