Surprisingly, of all meals you can get in korea, tuna sashimi is definitely one of the best value meal you can get.
A tuna sashimi meal for lunch would probably cost rm30 to 40 while a full fledged tuna sashimi dinner would be starting from rm75 to 150 per pax.
So whats so great about korean’s tuna shashimi meal?
1. You get amazing and premium side dish that includes prawn sashimi, braised beef, salmon sashimi or tuna tartare depending on the shop that you go.
2. Sit by the tuna bar and be a good guest, im almost certain that you will get unlimited servings of premium tuna belly irregardless of the tuna sashimi meal you ordered ( tuna meals are typically priced at rm75 for standard, rm90 for special and rm120 for super special )
3. On my recent visit to seoul, I had a meal at a posh looking tuna restaurant at Sheraton Hotel Sindorim. I chose the standard meal at rm75, and literally drown myself in a sea of premium tuna belly.
The chef even made a special rose from tuna sashimi and sprinkled with some gold flakes.
He mentioned that today im the shops vip as im a foreigner and they are happy to see me enjoying their food so much
The chef even baked a tuna bones with meat and a tuna skin tetaki for me!
Amazing. I cant wait for my next visit there.
