Partners of Sushi Tei - Audrey Teh & Cameron Cheah giving a media welcome speech ...
  • Cameron Cheah shared with us how he decided to introduce this restaurant chain to Malaysia last year ...
  • This is how Sushi Tei borned ... because Cameron often noticed long lines waiting to enter a Japanese restaurant in a neighboring country. One day, he curious to have a taste of what the fuss was all about, he jumped right in and joined the queue! As soon as he tasted the quality of its sushi, sashimi and cooked items - he knew that he just had to share Sushi Tei with all Malaysians.
Sushi Tei's DAI DAI ROLL making competition ...
  • This is what I am geared for and hoping to win the prized ... you will know what are the prizes to be won at below of my post ...

The stage being set for the media for the competition ...


Hand gloves for me ... I am ready to be one day Japanese Chef ... BRING IT ON!


Ingredients:- 80gm sushi rice, 2pcs crab stick, 50gm mango, 30gm red frisee lettuce, 60gm salmon slice, 10gm tobikko(flying fish roe), 10gm wasabi mayonnaise, 10gm 1000 island sauce, 10gm sweet sauce and ½ piece dry seaweed (yaki nori)


Before the competition begins, Chef Yang showing us the right way to make Dai Dai Roll ...


The main key factor for a perfect Dai Dai roll is to use a bamboo mat to roll the filling and seaweed together in a round shape. Is not easy thou!


Another main key factor is the way you cut the Dai Dai roll ... the answer is wipe your knife with a wet cloth ... it gives you a better cutting and the roll will not stick to your knife when you cut it. I learnt a lot of thing on how to make a perfect sushi roll ...


Final step is to garnish with tobikko on top of each roll.


Here is the beautiful and perfect Dai Dai Roll made by Chef Yang ...
