My family and I always eat Sushi King, first Malaysia’s all-time favorite Japanese restaurant on many times, so Sushi King become popular so quickly in Malaysia because this restaurant still are aiming to be first free port meat restaurant, served the Halal food have in Malaysia. Still, they will get the certified Halal status from from Jabatan Kemajuan Islam Malaysia (JAKIM). Mostly malay customers really love Sushi King. Now, Sushi King, a subsidiary under Texchem Group proudly launched its 100th outlet at the new AEON Mall Shah Alam.
They also organized a grand opening with the Japanese culture, just like they selling the Japanese souvenir gifts, and promoted the special Japanese traditional performances. My mom and I really love the bloom sakura trees around us the grand opening of Sushi King 100th at the AEON Mall Shah Alam. The guests also joined us to learn the music from the Japanese performances together!
“From the time we opened our first outlet in 1995 in Kuala Lumpur, we have definitely come a long way to where we are now with our 100th store, exposing Malaysians to enjoy one of Japan’s historically-rich cuisine over the years and vice versa, it gives us the opportunity to learn about Malaysia’s culture and their curiosity for new food,” said Tan Sri Dato’ Seri (Dr.) Konishi at the launch, that is why the Sushi King, largest Japanese Sushi Japanese are have to grown so bigger in 20 years and keep to make the Sushi King restaurants around the states in Malaysia, until they success to celebrate 100th as they launch new outlet in Aeon Mall, Shah Alam on this year 2016!
Wow, I admired the drummers who are hardworking to surprise us with their magnificent Taiko Drum performance (a traditional Japanese instrument)! It is different than the normal drum performance because it is very historical Japanese Taiko which used to cheer up the festivals in Japan.
The talented drummers also smiled so very bright and make the final bow to the VIPs and guests. They did a good job to make the guests are happy and enjoyed their Taiko performance!
FIrst time, I enjoyed the Japanese traditional ‘Soran Bushi’ (Japanese sea shanty) dance performance.
The Japanese dancers also from Hokkaido also carry their traditional Soran Bushi Japanese dance because they want to perform its unique dancing styles, so I saw their dance moves depict ocean waves, fishermen dragging nets, pulling ropes and lifting luggage over their shoulders. So, it is special culture in Japan. I just know about this dancing performance used in the past to encourage the fisherman during their work.
