Here’s the last post from our trip to HongKong earlier this month! I’m thinking it wouldn’t be a surprise that to you I would write about a restaurant in HongKong, my family lives for food. My mom was told to go to Nishimura for something business related and luckily brought us along with her! Honestly my brothers and I wanted to go there just to eat beef. I saw eating there as a reward for having to eat in a Chinese restaurant on new years eve, haha! Come on, who doesn’t like Japanese food?
I left all the sushi, sashimi and tempura out for the family members who wanted, because I’m not very fond of them. Not even salmon sashimi! In terms of plating, they were very well presented. I asked my mom for the names of all these dishes below and how she found them. She said all were quite good. And I’m guessing the names of the dishes with ‘Nishimura’ are their signatures!
Surprisingly I experimented that night trying new dishes I’ve never come across eating. They are Beef Sashimi and Foie Gras Teppanyaki. Not totally out of my comfort zone but a start! I actually liked the taste of cold-raw beef. Let’s say it was refreshing. The Foie Gras on the other hand? Not my taste. But the ones who like Foie Gras enjoyed it.
We also got sukiyaki which I didn’t really get much of since I was saving space for the beef. The thing about sukiyaki is, in Japan we went to this one place where I personally thought I had the best sukiyaki of my entire life, and I guarantee that I’m not exaggerating. This made it difficult for me to judge all the other sukiyaki’s and since Japan, I haven’t tasted any as good as the one in that trip. So i’ll keep it safe- it was good but not great.
I have to say I felt a little disappointed with the fried rice. This time I know it wasn’t just me because my whole family thought the same way as me. I thought it was a bit dry and my parents thought it was too busy. But if you go to Nishimura try it out anyways. We all have different opinions don’t we?
Last up! The one my brothers and I have been waiting for. We love both kinds and I found them delicious! But again it could be just me because I find all tenderloin and wagyu beef great. If you haven’t noticed, look at the background of the photos above. My brothers were getting so annoyed that I took forever to take these pictures.We’re not called the beef eaters for nothing!
If you go to HongKong I really recommend going to this place. Unfortunately it’s a bit on the expensive side but based on my family’s judgements, it’s worth it especially for their sushi and signature dishes. Going there, I saw how important it is to plate things nicely to make them look good. Because after seeing the things that sounded awful made me actually want to try it. If there’s one thing I’d recommend you to order, it’s the beef sashimi. All their dishes are unique including this one. Be adventurous when it comes to eating :).
