Omakase at Shika Teppan-Yaki

Shika Teppan-Yaki (Causeway Bay)

Shika is an interesting restaurant, they serve Omakase and Teppan-Yaki.
For Teppan-Yaki, there is a Teppan-Yaki area.

That night I tried the Omakase.

There was a huge cabinet full of seafood.

The menu was really classy with gold and silver specks on it.

There were two Omakase sets to choose from: Shika $988 or Iki $818.
Shika $988:
Appetizer, 6 kinds of sashimi, steamed/stewed dish, grilled dish, 5 pieces of assorted sushi, soup and dessert
Iki $818:
Appetizer, 5 kinds of sashimi, fried dish, grilled dish, 5 pieces of assorted sushi, soup and dessert
Went for the Iki as I wasn't hungry that day.

Started with the appetizer which was salmon, octopus and fried fish.

The salmon was poached nicely and the fried fish was appetizing.
After that we had the sashimi which was fresh with a lot of variety.

Five kinds of sashimi:

The scallops were sweet and fragrant dusted with yuzu powder.
Fried dish:

The tempura was light and crispy with a good mix of vegetables and seafood.
Grilled dishes:

Then came the abalone which was sweet and tender.
5 kinds sushi
As well as great sashimi, the sushi was even better.

I loved the tuna with grated ginger on top.

Then there was botan prawn with prawn roe on top.

The minced fatty tuna and sweet prawn was also good.

The soup was impressive because it was not the usual boring miso soup.
It was delicious milky fish soup.


After all that I was full and it was time for dessert!
The tofu icecream was a good to the meal because it was light and not too sweet.
