Hearty meals fit for sumo wrestlers

INDULGE in teppanyaki meals that are fit for a Japanese sumo wrestler.

The lavish Yokozuna, Qzeki, Sekiwake and Komusubi courses are available in Penang at Equatorial Hotel’s Kampachi outlet.

The promotion is named after the rankings of professional sumo wrestlers with the highest rank of Yokozuna being a sumptuous affair with appetiser, chawan mushi, salad, sashimi, tempura, miso soup and dessert.

The main course consists of lobster, salmon, scallop, rib eye, vegetables and garlic rice.

Those with a hearty appetite will love this delicious combination featuring a great selection of all-time Japanese favourites while for small eaters, this meal is better shared.

Watch in awe as Chef Faisal Mohd Ishak shows off his flambeing and knife turning skills as he skilfully prepares the meal before your eyes.

The mains for Ozeki are jumbo prawn, salmon, tenderloin beef and chicken.

For Sekiwake, the choices are scallop, salmon, sirloin beef and chicken, while Komusubi’s mains are prawn, butterfish and chicken.

He has also prepared fusion dishes such as the oyster shooter and spicy tuna salad to cater to local taste buds.

His sushi rolls like soft-shell crab, crunchy prawn tempura, beef and foie gras with truffle sauce are also intriguing creations.

Diners can also opt for the Kampachi Bento comprising grilled miso salmon, teriyaki chicken, unagi kabayaki and fried seafood or the Shokado Bento such as vegetable takiawase, black cod misoyaki and assorted tempura.
