Sakae Sushi New Dessert Menu – Green Tea Ice-Cream and Cheese Cake30 March, 2010
Since mid-March 2010, Sakae Sushi had launched a new menu with a yummy selection of new sushi dishes and the introduction of a new pink plate pricing at $3.99. One of the most exciting changes we were looking forward to was the new dessert menu.
The Japanese Ice Cream comes in 3 flavors – Chocolate, Strawberry and Grape; don’t be fooled by the packaging though – it might look like a cup noodle but its actually very small in size (see the comparison with a Sakae cup) – however it cost just $2.99 and the chocolate flavor is just yummy!
Another new addition to the dessert menu was the Macha Cheese Cake – a layer of cheese cake on top of red bean and green tea ice-cream; slice well to ensure you get all three layers together – because the green tea layer can be quite bitter by itself. This cake is slightly more expensive at $5.99 but worth every cent of it; for a slice of cheesecake at other cafes, you would have to pay much more.
For green tea fans, this next dessert is the ultimate dish for you – Macha Ice-Cream with Warabi Machi ($3.99); Green Tea Ice-Cream with Green Tea Mochi. Don’t be deceived by the machi cubes – while they might look rough, they are actually very smooth and refreshing since its served cold.
The Tempura Ice-Cream had been removed from the dessert menu – another dish in the menu that is similar would be the Tai-Yaki ($4.99) – Ice-cream served in a fish-shaped biscuit. Heard that this is a rather popular dish in Japan and you have to try it to know why!
