New Wing IOI Mall Puchong - Sakae Sushi

IOI Mall has got a new wing! There was no lack of takers despite the difficult market. These players have an eye on the long-term and definitely have deep pockets also. I took some shots of the F & B outlets above.

I was one of the early pioneers in the new Puchong (since moved to Sri Damansara) having moved in there in 1992. From a laidback one-lane Jalan Puchong to a congested one-lane Jalan Puchong in 1994 then enduring the super-jam for 4 years before the Kesas, MRR2 and Puchong Sg Besi Bypass were opened. We also paid the price as early pioneers with a poor stable of mediocre F & B outlets. But then the rewards were as the 1st mover the value of these early houses appreciated at least 100+%.

P/S - Business and studies have kind of taken some edge off my writing and I am suffering a mild bout of blogger's block. I hope the excitement will be back to permeate through my posts in the near future. I am not writing out of desire now but that of discipline. I am still visiting the various blogs on my blogroll but haphazardly and will comment as and when I can.

Sakae Sushi was my choice as I made a quick trip to Puchong and then another quick exit.
Its no fun to eat alone.... Anyway the food is not exactly to die for. The only redeeming factor is I like the salmon slices more than I thought I could. Imagining it as pieces of butter helped and some drops of lemon squeeze took the rawness away. Since it was nice I threw caution to the wind and took a plate of quite thick slices of salmon of the belt for a second helping (not posting pic as it did not turned out well).I like marinated baby octopuses on a bed of julienned cucumber but find this gunboat sushi not to my liking. The other stuff that I took from the belt were soy skin sushi with crab roes and unagi sushi. Nothing to shout about. No pics as I put in the wrong setting on my E90 causing the pics to be orangy.
