Samurai has always been a favorite of mine for Sushi in Riyadh. The cashier in their Faisaliah Mall can prove it. He even knows when I’m on vacation because he claims he doesn’t see me order often from the restaurant. Haha. Wow, what a reputation to leave behind. I, the Samurai girl.
Okay, so I’m not picky when it comes to Samurai. I know that they’re not the best Japanese ‘restaurant’ in the Riyadh. I know that most of their ingredients don’t even come from Japan nor their chefs are Japanese. So, what makes me like their food? It’s fast, convenient, reliable, and affordable. And they do make tasty meals. I like their beef teppanyaki. Paired with their garlic rice glistening with tender amount of oil, Samurai’s teppanyaki is a hit with me and my friends. Their shrimp tempura is served hot, huge, and crunchy. Their salmon sashimi, which I never fail to order, (it’s so automatic the cashier doesn’t even ask me if I’m ordering it), is my comfort food. Considering I can do this at home with some fresh salmon from hypermarkets, I still order this and pair it with any food item I’m craving for. The kroagge is a little bit off the mark for me that’s why I don’t order it often but the vegetable side dish that comes with an order of their hot dishes is also delicious. For a recent visit to the Kingdom Mall, a friend I ate in Samurai (yes, again) for dinner. We ordered beef teriyaki, shrimp tempura, and california maki… no salmon sashimi this time (because I just ate them last week, haha). The teriyaki is a little bit too sweet for me but I ate a lot. I must be that hungry or the garlic fried rice did its trick again. I would’ve preferred the maki with cream cheese on it than the ordinary california maki because this one is bland. I wish Samurai offers Japanese dessert too. I mean, I can totally use a fried ice cream after that heavy meal.
So for fast Japanese Mall available in your favorite shopping mall, you know where to go… hai!
