Sakae Sushi October Monthly Specials - Soft Shell Crab

I've overlooked this post because I dined here just the day before departing to KL for the weekend. Yup, this is Sakae Sushi and they currently having SOFT SHELL CRAB as this month's special theme. That's why I decided to slot this post in before October is over.

This is called the Triple Golden Roll (RM8.80 for Members Card, RM10.80 for Without Card). Fried soft shell crab is encased into thin and crispy popiah skin and then lightly fried. This is indeed an addictive snack. Although it was no longer hot when arrived on our table, the popiah skin was surprisingly still crackling! Lovely and highly recommended for fried food aficionados ^^

Crispy Splash Trio (RM7.80 for members, RM9.80 for non-members) is similar to the popiah, but this is wrapped in bread. And its a bit too oily to my liking. The dipping sauce for both dishes complements the fried items very well. It looks like Thousand Island sauce with a mild spiciness and a fragrant mustard/sesame oil savoury after taste.

Teriyaki Soft Shell Crab (RM11.80 - members, RM14.80 - non members) looks real good in the display photo. But in reality, it manage to preserve some of its full glory. Its actually soft shell crab rolled in tempura battered brinjal. There is a filling which I believe to be diced Shitake mushroom in of course, Teriyaki Sauce. I do not really find the chemistry in this dish, sad to say.

Soft Shell Crab Maki (RM1-members RM6.80-non members).  This is not one of the monthly special but more of the RM1 item for cardholders. Its always available in the menu. Soft shell crab centre with inari (beanskin sheets) with a dollop of sauce similarly used with the soft shell crab "popiah".
