Date of Visit: December 13 2014
The weekend past has been fuelled with booze… First up, was the Sumo Sushi Sake event on Saturday at West Kowloon. It was a disappointment, as I was looking forward to some awesome sushi and sashimi. But instead, they had half-assed California rolls, noodles in a cup (😱 !!), yakitori, chips and other Japanese street food…I felt I had been fleeced of HK$320 (inclusive of 9 tokens) for the entrance fee.
We were early, so basically sat under the sun for 3+hours to wait for the sumo wrestling to start…
The sumo wrestlers were not in great shape either. I can’t see much due to the crowd in front of me. But lucky me was standing next to a really tall guy who was taping the event, so I watched the match on his phone!😜
View of Victoria Harbour on my way to Port-a-loo. Do remember to bring own hand sanitiser and toilet papers!😝
This is the most expensive sake in the event. I exchanged 7 tokens (HK$87.50) for a cup. It was good – smooth and dry.
So that I don’t stuff up my nutrition plan, I had 3 skewers of the beef tongue and a skewer of mushrooms…
Unfortunately, I needed something ‘stronger’ to soak up sake… so here comes the spoiler… chips! Which, I must say is very good and deserves a thumbs up! 👍
My friends and I shared 2 bottles of sake…cheap…but they did the trick…left me laying awake half the night!
Well, since I have 2 tokens (HK$25) left, I might as well redeem this can of “Berry Sparkling Sake”… It’s still sitting in my fridge as I’m not going to OD on sugar!
No doubt – I WILL NOT be back!
