A sushi place serving all types of sushi, from the traditional bento and maki types, to fusion styled ones, and even Japanese hotpots. Yes you read that right, a hotpot dish in a Japanese restaurant which happens to be their signature and main course. I was at Fukusu Sushi in Kota Damansara to try out their fares recently, and it was good. Check out what we had that afternoon below.

Address: No.5-1 Jalan Pju5/4,
Dataran Sunway, Kota Damansara,
46200 Petaling Jaya
|Lovely hotpot, boiling and ready to savour|
|Kaisen Chankonabe – RM38.90 (spicy miso soup)|
We had two of their signature hotpot dishes, the first being the Kaisen Chankonabe consisting of Cabbage, enoki mushroom, shitake mushroom, white tofu, Inari, udon, shiimeiji mushroom, Ikageso (squid head), ebi nobashi (prawn) and scallop. Yes, that's a mouthful to see and savour. Love how the ingredients were really fresh, and for this particular dish we had it in delicious spicy miso soup.
|Salmon Chankonabe – RM33.90 (miso soup) - the salmon head is hidden inside|
Another very flavourful and tasty hotpot dish which we managed to savour that afternoon would be Fukusu Sushi's Salmon Chankonabe. Now I'm not a big fan of the strong fish flavour and taste, mainly due to the salmon head inside. Anyway this dish consists of Cabbage, enoki mushroom, shitake mushroom, white tofu, Inari, udon, shiimeiji mushroom and salmon fish head. Again a lot of ingredients thrown in, definately worth the price.
|Golden SSC Maki - RM15.90 (Mango sushi)|
|Ura Maki – RM17.90|
Have you tried Mango Sushi? Named the Golden SSC Maki, I love the refreshing taste of the thin mango slices on top with the filling inside. We tried the delectable Ura Maki as well, filled with cucumber and freshly fried salmon skin roll with sushi rice , and topped with slices of salmon. Luxurious indeed, all at a rather reasonable price.
|Beef Tataki Maki - RM15.90|
Another interesting fusion Japanese cuisine would be their Beef Tataki Maki. Made from cucumber and kani stick roll with sushi rice, each piece was wrapped with half cook striploin beef and topped spring onion with special fukusu and teriyaki sauce. Love how the sauce went so well with the beef pieces, which tasted so good in the mouth.
|Salmon Kabuto Teriyaki - RM15.90|
|Garlic Fried Rice – RM16.90|
If you're a big fan of salmon heads, then do try their Salmon Kabuto Teriyaki. I couldn't take it though, as the fish and sea taste was really too strong for me. My fellow foodies loved it though. As for me, I enjoyed the Garlic Fried Rice instead. The Fried rice is fried with garlic, eggs and mixture of butter sauce giving out this fragrant aroma even before I digged in.
|Chicken Katsu – RM12.90|
|Ikageso Tempura – RM11.90|
For the more traditional foodies, go for Fukusu's no-frills Chicken Katsu, done just right. Fried breadcrumb chicken, crispy on the outside, juicy and tender inside. For the more adventurous ones, do try out their Ikageso Tempura, fried squid head served with fukusu tempura sauce. Interesting dish indeed.
|Clean, brightly lit interior and decor of Fukusu Sushi Kota Damansara|
So the next time you are in the vicinity of Kota Damansara, do drop by Fukusu Sushi if you're in the mood for some Japanese sushi and hotpot. They are pretty new in the area filled with lots of F&B outlets, but look out for their clean, brightly lit signage outside, with the tagline, Respect, Impact, Success.
