Miyazaki 宮崎県 is a part of Kyushu Japan, blessed with beautiful sunshine, mild climate, clear skies and seas.
Few may be thoroughly familiar with the local Japanese food that the prefecture produces though, with the exception of perhaps Miyazakigyu – one of the highest grades of wagyu.
You have now savour a taste of Miyazaki at Maguro Donya Miuramisakikou Sushi & Dining, which specializes in sashimi and sushi grade Maguro (tuna).
Maguro Donya Miuramisakikou Sushi & Dining is headed by Chef Shuji Sawada, regarded as one of
the most renowned maguro and sashimi wholesalers in Japan.
Therefore, the quality of sashimi such as maguro, salmon, swordfish and yellowtail can rival some of those served in the best restaurants in Japan.
This Miyazaki Healthy Choice 5 Course Set is available with just a $8 top up. Here’s how it works:
– Get to Suntec City North Wing #03-314 Eat At Seven
– Order any main dish from Maguro Donya Miuramisakikou Sushi & Dining
– Add on $8 to enjoy the Miyazaki Healthy Choice 5 Course Set.
Here’s what the Miyazaki set includes:
Lactic Acid Bacterium Drink (Brown Rice)
This cloudy white coloured drink from Takachiho Muratabi is consumed before the meal to increase the number of good bacteria in the intestines and helps in digestion.
My dining partner said this reminded her of another cultured drink, though not as sweet.
Healthy Shiso Drink
I drink fruit vinegar quite often, and this Shisho Drink reminds me of that with its bright sour and refreshing aftertaste. It turns out that Red Shiso is sometimes added to drinks (such as water, soda water) in Japan for health benefits such as beautifying skin, aiding digestion and improving eyesight.
It is also popular for customers to request to add Shiso with Shochu (at additional cost of course).
Ice Cream with Oligosaccharide (Yuzu)
Oligosaccharide?? I wasn’t that familiar with “oligosaccharides” and did some checking up.
They are considered carbohydrates which have 3-10 simple sugars linked together, found naturally, have a mildly sweet taste, and work as as a partial substitute for fats and sugars in some foods.
It also works as a pre-biotic. Interesting how much “Oligosaccharide” added to ice cream can do.
Barley & Rice Miso
Made from naturally brewed Kanena barley miso, this means that the raw miso has not undergone any thermal treatment and is free from alcoholic additives, MSG or preservatives.
This barley miso is handmade from barley, rice, soybeans and sea salt, and after drinking the miso soup, you would realise there is a more natural taste that is not overly salty.
Hanamochi are rite sized rice cakes which are made to welcome the New Year as there was no fresh flowers in winter. ‘Hana’ means flower and ‘mochi’ means rice-cake.
These fruit and flowered shaped Hanamochi are elegantly pretty, contain red bean fillings, and are actually made without using artificial colourings and preservatives.
Japanese cuisine is always fascinating, and this set from Miyazaki allows me to eat, see, and feel how much emphasis the Japanese place on taste, aesthetics and definitely health aspects of food.
The governor of Miyazaki Prefecture Shunji Kono also acknowledges that consumers in Singapore have concerns over food safety issues, and has assured that food introduced here are both safe and locally produced as they take pride in their products.
